Things I Do To Help Deal With Anxiety

Hi everyone! Hope you’re all enjoying the run up to Christmas! It actually snowed where I live, which it hasn’t done in years!  Today I wanted to go over a few things that I do to help me when I’m feeling anxious. Every now and then I do a post on how I’m feeling/dealing with my mental health. Which I usually write as I am feeling anxious. So I thought I would write a post on how I actually deal with feeling anxious and not just those thoughts during the time of feeling it.

Lets Talk: About A Negative Mindset

Hi guys! I have been thinking lately about starting the first series here on my blog all things I have learnt over the past few years  and I wanted to share tips to help you do the same.  As much as I love makeup and the beauty world, something also important to me is mental health. It’s so easy to become bogged down in everyday life and get caught up in things.

I’m really bad at letting a negative mindset affect my mood and my day. Like I can’t shake that feeling off, it’s like this jacket of negativity is glued to me. Whether the cause of the jacket being put on is down to what someone has said to me, if my blog has a slow day or I feel negative about what I’m doing with my life.

Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017

Although we are now 8 days into the new year and I have written up goals I want to achieve in the next 357 days. I was on the fence on whether it was too late to write this post, but it’s better late than never. 2016 for me was a really crazy year, I know a lot of people have been saying how bad it has been for them and on some things I can agree. I’ve had some pretty tough things go on in my life last year that I never envisioned at the beginning of 2016.


But in all honesty I’m glad I had to deal with tough times because life isn’t always happiness and sunshine (as much as Id like it to be). The toughest thing 2016 brought was being unemployed for a short spell, by unfortunate luck both Tom and myself around the same time. I’ve been working for 5 years and it was so difficult to secure a full time job. Employers either wanted more experience or I had too much. It was a never ending cycle and each interview I began to loose hope that someone would employ me. I also tried working in different environments that didn’t suit me and I realised how nasty some people can be just because I’m different from them. Luckily I started a new job last Autumn and T is about to start his tomorrow.
