Tips for dealing with boredom

I have spent many hours suffering from boredom so am not really in any position to chastise any of you for the same thing. This little article is rather my way of saying that there is so much to do – so why sit vegetating in front of a wall? Whether you are bored at home, bored during your holiday or bored while driving in the car, this is a friendly guide to aiding you on your way to curing boredom so that you don’t feel ready to strangle yourself if you spend one more minute counting the dust particles. So next time you feel like you may be slipping into the lapse of this disease, remember my words and you may soon find that you are cured of boredom forever (or at least for now).

February Eco-Friendly Challenge – Pitching Plastic!!

s I said, I’m making it a mission to become more environmentally friendly. The way I’m going to do this is by setting myself a challenge each month. Every month I’m going to try and tackle a different part of my life where I can live more sustainably or be more eco-friendly, and this month I’m pitching plastic! Now I know that in society’s current climate it can be challenging to make significant changes like this (it’s not like the rest of the world is necessarily helping out like all the plastic packaging in supermarkets, straws etc.). The big thing I really want to do with these challenges is to make them sustainable and practical to slot into daily life.

Oh for the love of stationery! Stationery must-haves and fun options for stationery addicts!!

Hey everyone!! Today I thought, because there are so many wonderful stationery items available in the world, I’d go through my list of stationery must-haves and also some fun ones that are not essential but I just couldn’t live without (does that make it an essential?). Hopefully, you find some useful information from this or even just an idea on what you might need to add to your desk.

Not every post will be a hit

Anyway … I was really unsure what to write about today. I’ve been having some difficulty coming up with topics that I want to write about this year (I don’t think the university workload is helping), so I decided to look back through all my old posts. I got to see the ones that did well and the ones that didn’t, and that got me thinking about the post I did last weekend, which didn’t get many views or likes. Sadly not every post will be a hit, and that can really hurt. But despite that, you can’t let that stop you from enjoying blogging!

There aren’t enough hours in the day – a few tips to get a little more time

Well, as much as I have pondered and hoped, I don’t think there’s going to be away any time soon for us to magically increase the numbers of hours in the day. You may suggest giving up a few hours of sleep, but I’ve tried that … and let’s just say that the monster I become isn’t worth those extra hours of productivity because I need at least a day or two to recover, so the whole thing is essentially an exercise in futility. So how on earth can we get just a little extra time in our day? Is it too much to ask? Well, it can be difficult, but there are a few ways to get a little extra time in your day, and the answer is not magic. So … here we go!
