Feeling Calm #16

For my birthday I was given a great new book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends to help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

I’ve had a pretty good week this week. I got out of practise of meditating and really practising my mindfulness so I’m putting a lot of effort into that and I’m already feeling a million times better for it. I’m also making more effort to just be happy, surprising how much just trying to be happy actually makes.

I’ve still had some profoundly rubbish moments though, the cat has taken to bringing me live birds, little sh*t, the child pissed all over me, the shade on my swing chair broke and other such irritations so I’ve still found it therapeutic to pick my 10 moments from the past 7 days and here they are;

Project Bridesmaid #6

So in about a year I am going to be a bridesmaid for my little sister. This is just the kind of goal I need to start losing some weight and getting healthier, which all ties in nicely with my quest to be a calmer, happier and healthier person.

I have decided to vlog about my journey as that will give me a visual reminder of where I’ve been and where I am and as it’s something that makes me rather uncomfortable it will also help to keep me in check. Plus it’s always good to push yourself.

During my journey I will be getting to try all kinds of new products and sharing my experiences of them with you. Continue reading Project Bridesmaid #6

Feeling Calm #15

For my birthday I was given a great new book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends to help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

Towards the end half of last week I was still feeling quite anxious, but I’ve picked myself up and am now back to me. The weather is good, the sun is shining and I’m feeling great. I’ve still found it therapeutic to pick my 10 moments from the past 7 days and here they are;

This plus that equals…. why I’m not cut out for exercising.

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week I thought I’d share the reasons me and exercise do not mix well, obviously I know it’s good for me, so I’m making an effort to do more of it, quite specifically cycling, but I do really think that it’s got it in for me.

Feeling Calm #14

For my birthday I was given a great new book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends to help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

I’ve still found myself feeling quite anxious this week, with work coming and going I’ve found it hard to find some status quo, but I’ve been concentrating on myself a bit more, taking some time out, cycling, meditating and writing my journal, so as ever it has been therapeutic to pick my 10 moments from this week and here they are; Continue reading Feeling Calm #14

Things to Know About Working From Home #5

Dealing with disappointment  

When I started blogging two years ago the aim was to help me find a way, any way, to stay at home. I tried a few different things, took a few courses and found myself working as a Social Media Manager. I was able to leave my admin job and am now officially self employed. I thought I would start sharing some of the things I have learnt along the way.

Being self employed can often mean a lot of work pitching for little reward, even worse are the times when you are offered a job that never actually materialises.
