Hey everyone – today I’m talking about things you can do when you don’t really feel like doing anything. When you’re coming off a very busy period, or maybe are overdue some relaxation, you might feel quite slothy, and have no motivation to do anything. Well today, I’m sharing some fun things you can try, when you don’t feel like doing anything.
mance book a few weeks ago and completely fell in love with the idea because the idea of having a fun Christmas tradition/celebration with your friends is fantastic!! It’s especially hitting home for me this year because I’m actually having more of a Friendsmas this year. So, with that in mind, I thought it would be really fun to share some funky Friendsmas ideas that you can pull together fairly quickly if you and your besties are planning to celebrate Christmas together this year but are looking for ideas. I hope you enjoy this post!
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!
One thing that I think is always important to remember amid all the joy and celebrations is that it is always important to show our gratitude by giving something back. After all, this has been a more challenging year than most so even if it’s in the smallest way possible, like donating £5 to a Hedgehog conservation society, giving back in whatever way you can make such a big difference and can make someone’s festive season. So that’s why today, I’m going to be sharing a few ways to give back this Christmas, that also happen to be covid friendly!
Today I’m joined by the lovely Intorverted Thoughts to do a collab about reading (seeing as we both love it so much). She did a fantastic post on the history of reading, and my post is about the benefits of reading, so I hope you enjoy both of our posts!!
For all those who struggle when your sloth mode gets activated, you don’t have to worry anymore about struggling to find something to do and arguing with yourself about whether or not you actually want to do it. Here are 13 things that can help you fix your sloth mode and do something even when you have zero motivation and don’t want to do anything at all.
I know that the world is still in lockdown/quarantine mode, and you might be wondering why I’m giving you tips for planning an event that isn’t exactly possible. Well, I wrote a blog post a while back to honour the girl’s night in my best friend, and I would have had if lockdown hadn’t started (if you haven’t read it, be sure to check it out here), and that got me thinking … As much fun as a girl’s night in can be, it does require a small bit of planning and sometimes planning, and organising can be stressful. So, I thought it would be a fun idea to share some tips for planning your ultimate girl’s night (complete with ways to prepare a quarantine/social-distancing friendly version) so that the entire experience can be fun, easy and stress-free from start to finish. Also, it’s a fun way to get excited for a great night with your girls once the pandemic has calmed down and you can even start planning ahead of time … now without further ado, here are some tips for planning your ultimate girl’s night.
Being kind to or helping others is known to be good for our own mental health and wellbeing because it can help reduce stress, make one feel more positive and improve emotional wellbeing in general. Not only that, but your kindness will also help the mental health of the person receiving your gesture. It’s an incredibly positive two-way street that only has benefits. So, with that in mind, I thought I’d do my second post for mental health awareness week on the very theme that the week is centred around: kindness. Lots of us, I’m sure, want to show kindness but sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming as to where to begin. That’s why today all I’ll be doing is sharing a few ideas for ways to spread the love and care.
It’s almost Mother’s Day again except this year things are going to be a little bit different … we can’t take our moms to the same special places, buy her the same gifts or even spend time with her in person in some cases. Not to worry, because today I’ve made a list of a few ways that you can celebrate Mother’s Day even during lockdown. I hope you enjoy it xx
It’s the final count down. Literally. Valentine’s day is only two days! Those who are simply too busy and haven’t noticed the big day getting closer and closer, or procrastinators who knew two weeks ago but thought they’d wait another week … well with two days to go now is the time when all of us who haven’t been able to get a gift in time will be scrambling to come up with something that doesn’t look like we bought it 15 minutes before the date. If this is you, and you’ve left your shopping a lot later than you would have liked, don’t feel alarmed. As stressful and panic-inducing as it may feel to not have a gift this close to the day, it’s not the end of the world. Why? Because there are plenty of last-minute gifts that you can scrape together, both homemade and bought, that look as if you put hours of thought into it instead of rushing to get it done in time. Keep reading to find some great ideas for last minute gifts!
