20 Things To Do This Autumn

20 Things To Do This Autumn

As we are still in a weird time in the world with Coronavirus still being the talk of the town, I know its been hard to think out of the box of things to do this year safely. The usual things we would be doing this Autumn here in England are just not happening, such as going to bonfire nights and watching fireworks on guy Fawkes day.

But just because the time is weird this year doesn’t mean that we cant enjoy ourselves this year! If you’re anything like me, I don’t celebrate Halloween so you won’t see any Halloween activities in my list. Instead you’ll find Autumnal activities that involve family and loved ones.

Today I Am Thankful For…

Today I Am Thankful For…

Something thats really important to me, and something I like to remind people of is the good things they have in life. I especially like to do this when I’m having a rough time, it really helps to put things into perspective.

30 Blogmas Post Ideas For Bloggers

Even though my blog has been around for 5 years, this will be the first Christmas where I will be an active blogger! How exciting. And with that, I had heard the word ‘blogmas’ being thrown around occasionally and did some research into it. If you’re familiar with YouTube and vlogmas, its the same concept. You post a blog post everyday in the lead up to Christmas.

How I’m Learning To Be More Grateful In Life

How I’m Learning To Be More Grateful In Life

It can be really hard when you suffer from a mental illness to see the brighter side of life. Your thoughts consume you and you feel hopeless. Whenever I feel this way, I try to remind myself of the good I have in this world. I remind myself of the things that bring me and joy and make me happy. I do this exercise as a reminder to my brain that things are better than I think they are.

I read a book that a therapist wrote a few years ago when I was at my lowest mentally, and it gave this really good learning technique. It was saying out loud to yourself that you acknowledge your feelings. This triggers something in your brain so that you recognise that it is just thoughts, it’s not real or present. Doing this exercise and saying out loud the good things you have in life can help in the same way. It’s like you’re talking to a friend or a family member, reminding them everything will be okay. But instead you are talking to yourself.
