When 2020 started, I felt like it was a fresh start with a whole bunch of new possibilities. Little did I know, 2020 had a different idea for all of us. This year just really hasn’t been too kind. However, I have decided to look back over the whole 2020/lockdown experience in a more positive way to see what good things have happened so far this year.
So yeah, let’s throw on our positive pants and think about what we are grateful for…
Life keeps throwing me curve balls. Whenever I feel like things are settling down, some new and crazy twist gets thrown at me. However, one thing that stays consistent is my life is my love of films.
I feel like I haven’t posted one of these post types in forever and I haven’t watched that many films since then either. With so much going on in my life, it can be tricky to find the time for a film. I’m hoping that I can find more time from now on though.
Even though I didn’t watch that many films since the fourth edition of this post series, I did watch a few so I figured that I would share this post with you anyway.
Social media is becoming very overwhelming these days. There’s topics that are becoming more actively spoken about and those topics can be rather triggering. Some people might need to take a social media break and some people feel completely fine to carry on using their accounts as normal. All reactions are valid and you’ve got to do what’s best for you.
Personally, social media is my life. I don’t have many friends or family so social media is how I talk to people and see what is happening in the world. If I take that away from myself then I would probably feel completely lost. That’s what I decided to be more mindful of my social media uses.
Whether you find social media triggering or you just want to be more aware of your social media usage, mindfulness practises are important for anyone online.
I remember when I used to have school or college on a Monday morning. It would make Sunday a very terrible day. It was usually the day that was spent catching up on work or getting ready for the next day.
Now that I’m an adult and no longer have homework to rush on a Sunday evening, I feel like I’m letting my Sundays go to waste. I just sit around and watch tv when I should be planning my week ahead or being a little bit more productive.
That’s why I’m deciding from this point on, Sundays will now be a day of productivity for me.
So, here are some ideas on how to be more productive on a Sunday..
I am very much addicted to my phone. I think we all are at this point though. It’s crazy to think about how much our phones are capable of now. Back in the day, all my phone could do was make calls and play snake.
There are so many apps available now and it always feels like we are just looking for a new one to download. Well, look no further. Here are some apps that don’t cost a penny but will improve your life in one way or another.
I think we are all programmed to think that Mondays have to suck. But they don’t have to. For me, the way to not dread a Monday is to find something to look forward to for the week. If you don’t have something you’re excited for, you could set yourself a goal for the week which means you’ll have something to work towards.
Whether you love Mondays or not, getting out of bed on a Monday morning can be a tricky one. So, here are some Monday motivational quotes for you to help you feel more productive and motivated for the week.
Starting a new month has always been a pretty exciting time for me. I love the idea that a new start is here and I get to reevaluate my life and my goals. Am I making progress on my goals? Are the goals I’ve set still relevant? If the answer is no, then I get to rethink the goals and see how I can keep improving myself and my life.
For those of you who read my last blog post, you’ll know that my life has been changing a lot. Since those changes, I’ve been thinking about my goals even more. So I figured that this would be a perfect time to write a post here all about my July goals.
