Post Trip Feelings.

Dear Journal,

Today I want to talk to you about my weekend away. Last weekend I went away with my family. As soon as I left work on Friday afternoon I headed straight home and got ready to start the weekend.

I was especially excited to go away. I felt that it would be a great opportunity to recharge. And I was not wrong. The weekend was great. I had a fantastic time!

I didn’t schedule my time. I didn’t get stressed about not planning my day. I didn’t set any alarms. I spent my time writing new blog posts and reading. It was the most relaxing weekend ever!

I’m glad that I went and not having the internet for the entire time was refreshing too. I mean, I love the internet, but I think sometimes I just need time away from it all. I was back at work today but I was feeling incredibly relaxed and I’ve had a fantastic day.

I find it especially hard to just switch off and relax without getting really anxious about the possibility of ‘wasting valuable time’… but this weekend. I did it! I ACTUALLY DID IT. I’m so proud of myself. I finally feeling like I’m making so much progress with bettering myself into the person I want to be.

I hope you had a fantastic weekend too! ❤

Self Care Sunday.

Dear Journal,

How was your weekend?

Firstly, I would just like to apologise for not uploading a post last Thursday. I just felt that it wasn’t good enough to upload. I didn’t have the best of weeks last week. I’ve finally gotten over the cold and I’m feeling much better.

I had a day off work on Sunday. I was so happy. I would like to share what I got up to with you.

I got up super early and ate breakfast (I’ve been managing to get my three meals a day in, I’m so proud of myself) then I walked the dog. It was such beautiful day, it’s starting getting a little warmer which is nice. I love the spring weather.

I had a long to-do list to get through so I was glad to be hitting the ground running. I had lots of blog photos to take for March’s uploads. Then I did some post planning as well as some writing for a project I’m working on.

I’ve been remembering to take short breaks in between doing tasks so I don’t get overwhelmed and carried away, so I made time to do some reading and yoga.

After dinner I walked the dog again, then I did some baking. I forgot how much I love baking! Then I took a bath and did a face mask. It was divine! I don’t think I’ve felt that relaxed in a long time.

Thank you so much for reading ❤

What did you get up to at the weekend?
