What have I achieved?

I wish I had been blogging back in January when I was thinking of my new year resolutions, but unfortunately, I was busy being trapped in an unhappy relationship and I wasn’t putting myself first as much as I should have been. So, looking back at the last year, I’ve been trying to put all the big life changes into perspective and think about all that I have achieved.

Home Yoga Routine

Yoga is a massive part of self care for me, as well as fitness. I’ve lost a stone so far in my fitness journey and I’ve been doing a lot of exercise recently to help lift my mood during my depressive episode. Today, I filmed myself doing a yoga flow routine so that I could review the video and check my form.

Tattoo addiction

It’s the honest truth that getting tattoos can be pretty addictive. When I get a new one, I immediately start planning my next five and then I go a bit crazy. I thought I would take you on a journey through my tattoos so far. What do they mean? Which body part hurts the most? Why do I love it so much?

8. Re-Charge

Ironically I have taken a break from the self care-athon because I’ve had a dip in my mental health and needed some time for self care. I’ve been going for runs, doing face masks and doing all those lovely little self care actions to try to make myself feel better. Honestly, it hasn’t really worked all that well.

7. Learn

Learning to me is a really enjoyable experience. I like to learn alone, finding my own information and seeking out knowledge that interests me. Learning in the context of my degree is weird, because going to classes is a massively anxiety inducing experience. I enjoy gaining the knowledge and putting my opinion across in discussions, but I find the pressure of deadlines and grades have too much of an impact on my mental health to enjoy it.

6. Support

This year I’ve started to be a bit more open about my mental health with the people important to me. It’s not easy to ask for support when you can’t always explain what’s wrong without getting upset, but I’m very lucky to have some amazing friends who have supported me through rough times in my mental health just by showing that they care.

5. Outside

Going for a walk or a run can be refreshing, whether it’s just getting fresh air by walking around my town or exploring an exciting new environment when travelling. I walk to work every day and run twice a week, so it’s safe to say that I have my fair share of time outside. I can think of many times that the great outdoors have helped me with my mental health and I want to share one of those experiences with you in this post. Continue reading “5. Outside”
