When I first started blogging up until about three months ago, I would blog whenever I had the inspiration and it would lack so much consistency with the days and times I was posting. Three months ago I decided to put a strict schedule in place for my blog and it has helped me stay organised. Having a schedule also means I can plan my blog content ahead of time. This way of working has been so helpful for me, it has been stress-free and I have been enjoying blogging so much more. I haven’t had the blind panic of what to post and what to write about, which is sometimes what used to happen ha ha!
Self-care has become a well-known term and I think that people are now making themselves a priority. How many times have you cancelled something you had planned to be there for someone else? Or when was the last time you said no? Sometimes it is easy to forget about yourself because you want to make sure everyone else is okay.
It is okay to put yourself first!
I have been blogging for just over 2 years and I have learned so much about blogging but also about myself. When I first started I didn’t really know very much and just did as much research as I could. In keeping with helpful blogging posts this month, I am going to share some tips that I have found the most effective for growing my blog.
Today is World Stress Day. Stress is so common and can cause serious problems for your mental health and impact your physical health. It is important that it is taken seriously. In a study in 2018, 74% of UK adults had felt stressed at some point with more women at 81% compared to 67% of them being male. There is little activities that you can do to relieve stress. I am sharing some of the easiest ways you can relieve stress.
I came across the BusyB brand online and reached out to them to work on content for stationery week earlier this year and they were kind enough to provide products for a giveaway also. You can read my review of their products from Stationery Week here. I love the quality of their products and I was in need of a diary and I decided I needed a BusyB diary in my life.
I am back with another bullet journal set up blog post, for all you planner and stationery babes! I have to keep reminding myself that it is going to be November, its nearly the end of 2019 and Christmas, which I am super excited for! Where has 2019 gone? This year definitely feels one of the quickest years of my life!
Mental health is just as important as physical health and it is important to spread that message. Since I was diagnosed with anxiety, society has come a long way with help and organisations providing support. There is still progress to be made, which is why I like to use my platform to help create awareness. When I realised it was Mental Health Awareness Day on 10th of this month, I reached out to Blurt to see if they wanted to collaborate this month and pleased they agreed. They sent me a BuddyBox to review and share with you all.
