Managing my mental health

I had a random thought pop into my had and I was thinking about it. And I know there are countless ways to dive into this topic and that there’s so much under the umbrella of mental health management because mental health is made up of so many different things. But I think, for me,Continue reading “Managing my mental health”

✴ totally random apps that have helped me survive quarantine ✴

I’m so bored. Still. But there’s a lot to be thankful for. Still. And I’m trying to take note of it all. Which should be helpful during this chaotic period in our lives, right? Gotta try to look on the bright side, and since I’m able to, there’s no reason for me not to actuallyContinue reading “✴ totally random apps that have helped me survive quarantine ✴”

Getting Creative with Coffee

I’m bored. Let me start out by saying I’m thankful that that’s the worst of my problems right now, because I know things are crazy in the world and I’m lucky to have a roof over my head, food in my kitchen, and internet and technology and good people and things around me. But still,Continue reading “Getting Creative with Coffee”

Today is not a lost cause

I was listening to a meditation podcast in my car this morning and I made a mental note of something it said that I thought was important. “Balance is a moving target.” It depends on so many different factors that all change all the time. Balancing it all requires different things at different times. ItContinue reading “Today is not a lost cause”

Quarantine Update: day 56

It’s another morning of another day, the start of another week where we’re gonna be doing a whole lot of the same thing (that thing being nothing). It’s actually kinda funny, the fact that we’re living in a weird “Groundhog’s Day” situation, and I definitely typed that with light humor as I try to seeContinue reading “Quarantine Update: day 56”

enjoy the little things

Thought this quote was fitting because good little things are what’s getting me through the all-consuming boredom (things like fancy coffee from my own personal at-home cafe lol, finding and downloading and playing new games on my phone, infused water, and video calling my family♡ every day). I’m telling myself to focus on these awesomeContinue reading “enjoy the little things”

Mental Health Awareness Month

 I took this selfie on the 1st, found a mental health sticker for it, & I wanted to post it but couldn’t think of a perfect caption for it. Because I wanted it to be about something important. Because mental health is HEALTH, not something separate but a portion of the whole piece. The conversationContinue reading “Mental Health Awareness Month”

Words of the Year, 5 months later

I think it was like a few years ago, in early January, I heard about people picking a “word of the year” instead of making New Year resolutions. And this year a blog post by blessingmanifesting reminded me of it. She said to choose a word that embodies how you want to be and thinkContinue reading “Words of the Year, 5 months later”

I was listening to a podcast and one topic was this “new normal” everyone is talking about.

I’d started writing something about that weeks ago, and I never got around to finishing it, but I reread it just now and remembered where I was going with it. I’m hoping to finish it later tonight, but here’s what I have at this point: Finding A New Normal Things are chaotic and uncertain inContinue reading “I was listening to a podcast and one topic was this “new normal” everyone is talking about.”
