Without a shadow of a doubt, this year has been the most unexpected, heart-breaking, toughest 12 months of many peoples lives. I’d be stupid to think it’s been plain sailing for anyone around the world, especially as so many lives have been lost and so many economies and industries have been shattered, not to mention people’s livelihoods. However, as I always do I am going to try shine a ray of positivity on this post with counting down some of the ‘Good’ things that have come out of this year.Continue reading “20 Good Things to come out of 2020.”
So yes, it has been a while and these months actually feel more than just 2 months (as I’m writing this) ago. I fell a bit behind on tracking my 2020 summed up posts, but nevertheless, it’s here. I will admit it’s not the most interesting as you will see however it is still part of the whirlwind of 2020 we have found ourselves in.Continue reading “2020 Summed Up – Part 3”

I don’t know about you guys but I have well and truly hit a rut. Quarantine and Lockdown is starting to come to an end (not saying that COVID isn’t a thing anymore, it is. Please be safe!) and things are slowly getting back to normal but for some reason I have hit a rut.Continue reading “Getting out of THAT Covid-19 Rut.”
Since Lockdown begin, so many people have had to part ways with the gym. Some are secretly quite happy about that and others are missing their beloved. I’ve been focusing on my fitness and health a lot more and have culminated a list of workouts I have been doing or at least tried during these times. I hope this helps you find an at home workout you love and pushes you to truly enjoy working out, not see it as a chore.Continue reading “At Home Workouts I’ve been Loving”
This was going to be ‘What I’ve read in Lockdown’ post however I realised I’ve done a lot more than just that. I’m going to share everything I’ve been doing during Lockdown to keep myself entertained. I’ll hopefully not forget anything but I can pre-warn you now, there’s a lot! This was written before the announcement given about the changes coming on the 4th July.Continue reading “How I’ve been entertaining myself in Lockdown”
As lock down/quarantine is starting to lift I have only just fallen in to a routine that I’d still like to try stick to. It’s given me a slight structure to my day. I have been on and off ‘plans’ and ‘routines’ and even ‘timetables’ in the past few weeks or just having a few tasks I want to complete in that day.
It’s become a thing that you are even team #productive or team #whatdayisit? in lockdown. Now, before I start, I am not saying you have to be productive everyday or at all, this period of time is your time, do with it what you like. I’ve found myself either having super productive days or literally doing naff all, so I thought I’d write this in case it helps anyone else in the same position.Read more
As we all are aware, no one seems to know when this lock down/quarantine time will end and I think I’m becoming okay with that. I normally live such a structured life and everything has to go to plan and I’ve always got to be busy, but that isn’t the case anymore. I’ve been enjoying doing a little less and realised I don’t need to be busy 24/7 or ‘switched-on’ 100% of my time.Continue reading “Things I’ll take with me after Quarantine.”
Now I have previously done posts on ‘Self-Care’ before and My Self-Care Checklist… However now we are in Lock down/Quarantine, I feel self care is at it’s most important and thought I’d share a collection of things that I do or know of to have a self care session.
