Refresh, Unwind & Breathe





Sometimes we can all get wrapped up in the wonderful world of the internet, and we sometimes forget to unwind, refresh & breathe. All three of these things I think and believe are important, well especially breathe otherwise we are screwed either way. But today I wanted to talk & share with you ways of just switching off and what I like to do when it comes to taking a break from both real life & the online world.

Grab something comfy to wear - I love nothing more than sitting back and chilling in something comfortable wether it's pyjamas, chunky knits, whatever it just has to be comfy and cosy. Just this on it's own makes a huge difference to how I feel.

Find something you enjoy - wether it's scrolling through your instagram feed, reading a book, or simply just listening to music it's the little things that add up to how we feel overall, when I relax I tend to type blog posts, snap away on my camera & listen to music. All of these not only instantly make me feel chilled and happy but they are also productive......well the blog part is.

Eat something - For me as we are now in Spring/Summer I'm eating strawberries by the pound so a little sweet and refreshing treat is the perfect way to refresh your mind but also give you a boost of energy and eating healthy plays a HUGE part in how I function as if I eat rubbish food I tend to feel rubbish, there is just something about strawberries as a snack that makes my happy.

Unwind - Unwinding for me is something that I know I need to do more, since it's become something I'm getting on top of, I've become obsessed with the adult colouring books from Johanna Basford, These have really been helping me to stress less, worries less & live more. I find that colouring away takes my mind of anything that's normally whirling around in it. They not only are a mega anxiety & stress buster but they are super fun & honestly look to beautiful to colour in. I'm really loving the Secret Garden colouring book.

Refresh - Going for a walk, catching up with friends or even being alone with your own thoughts Is refreshing in itself, I love finding new places that I can go and explore yet I also love just being on my own with my own thoughts.

Even something simple like just sitting down in a quite room is refreshing and calming.....so take a leaf out of my book and invest in some chill time.
