Getting back into the swing of things

It has been way to long since I last wrote a blog post or even attempted to do anything blog related and if I’m being honest, I just haven’t really felt like myself.

I’ve felt unmotivated to do anything and I just float from one day to the next trying to keep myself busy.

This year is just going way to fast for my liking and the realisation has hit me. I was supposed to spend this year trying to figure out what I want to do, what’s my next step and I have nothing and I feel like I’m wasting time.

All my friends seem to be moving on and I’m stuck, not knowing which way to turn.

I’ve felt like this for a few weeks now and I’ve done everything I can to avoid sitting at home and just contemplating how unhappy I am about certain things. I’ve pushed myself into having a busy schedule, going out drinking, eating crap foods and none of it has made me feel any better.

But, a few weeks later, I’m finally starting to feel a little happier and I’m trying my best to kick my life into gear.

I know that next year things really do need to change, I’m still working in the same city were I went to uni and were most of my friends lived, but slowly they’re all leaving which means I finally need to as well.

Another thing I am desperate to do is to just travel somewhere, even if it’s just in this country, I’m restless I need to get out there and discover somewhere new.

I dream of visiting New Zealand and Australia but I know I still need to save up a bit more before I can tick that off the list. So over Christmas and the beginning of next year I’m going to get as much saved up as I can so I can go sooner rather than later.

So as of now I’m going to make myself snap out of this deep dark mood, focus on the positive things like writing more blog posts.

For any of you that have been feeling down, I thought I’d share with you a few things which have been cheering me up when I’ve been feeling especially low:

1.Spending time with friends and family.

I went out for a family meal last week and also visited one of my friends in Ashby, it definitely made me feel so much happier.

2. Taking my dog for a walk.

I love spending time with that little guy and watching him run about just puts a smile on my face. Also just being outdoors in general and breathing in fresh air really helps to clear my mind.

3. Looking for new healthy recipes to try.

I find cooking new food fun and eating healthier makes me feel more energetic and less slobish. I ate a lot of pizza and fatty foods last week and just felt ugh.

4. Watching Thatcher Joe’s prank videos

A bit of a random one but I find his prank videos hilarious. If I find myself just sat there gazing off into space or feeling sad, I put one of his videos on and I’m laughing withing seconds.

5. Going Christmas shopping

I am obsessed with Christmas and walking round places and seeing all the Christmas displays just really brightens up my mood. Although I tend to avoid shopping on Saturdays when it’s crazy busy.

If you have anythings that cheer you up, I’d love to hear them.

I hope you liked this post, bye for now
