5 Ways I Want To Start My Day

Seeing as I’ve started my freelance journey again, this time with a fresh perspective and newfound motivation, there are a few ways that I want to begin my days that I haven’t been able to do in the past. Everyone has their own routine that makes them feel ready to take on the day ahead and I’m still searching for the one that’s right for me. Seeing as I don’t sit down at my desk until 10 am to start working, I have a fair amount of time in the early morning to begin practicing a new routine that I think will help me stay focused throughout the day.

5 Ways To Quiet Your Mind When You Can't Sleep

Having a good night’s sleep was never really an issue for me until I entered my mid to late twenties. I was always (and still am, to an extent) the kind of person that can fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow. However, I’ve noticed that with my increasing anxiety through the years of unavoidable “adulting” and the many changes I’ve gone through in the past year, sleep hasn’t been the easiest thing for me after a long day of stress. I often catch myself thinking too much about what I have to do the next day or what I might be regretting about year’s past. This usually culminates to hours spent tossing and turning and a few temper tantrums here and there. I know that I’m not the only person out there who suffers from difficulty sleeping, so I thought it would be useful to share a few tips and tricks that I keep up my sleeve for sleepless nights.

WHAT I EXPERIENCED DOING YOGA FOR A FULL WEEK

A someone who always mocked people who followed the yoga trend, I never thought I'd writing an entire post about it. But here is: my experience doing yoga for a full week. The main reason I wanted to start doing yoga was because of the testaments people who did it gave me about how it made them feel. I could only brush it off as them following a fab for so long before I had to think about it as a viable option for stress release, muscle strengthening, and overall mindfulness.

HOW EXERCISE HAS IMPROVED MY MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH

I can sit here and tell you that I wholeheartedly enjoy working out and staying fit, but that would not be honest of me and I try to stay as honest as possible on my blog. The truth is that for much of my life I’ve hated fitness. Maybe it was the school system’s mandatory gym classes that made me feel like I was being forced rather than encouraged to participate in physical activities. Most of my childhood and adolescence was spent either hanging out with friends or locked up in my room writing—that was exactly how I liked it up until I entered university and acquired the inevitable stress of adulthood and post-secondary education.
