How I make myself feel better

Sometimes life can get the better of you and I’m coming to accept that it’s okay for that to happen sometimes. Whether that’s your health, your personal life, your work life or whatever – shit happens. But it’s how you get through it that’s important. I’ve been off work again for reasons I don’t want to get into, but in order to get on the road to being me again, I need to make sure I get myself back to normal. My auntie called me yesterday and asked if I wanted to go out for a lunch to get me out of the house. I’ve been a massive hermit (I’m sure you’d have clocked on as I’ve been re-posting older pictures on Instagram) and knew I needed to get out again before I spiral out of control – so I said yes. To make myself feel better I;

  • Pulled all of my makeup out and put myself together – covering up my skin which has erupted in spots made me feel a lot better
  • Filmed a couple of videos for my channel which I haven’t done in forever
  • Shot a few pictures of my outfit and made the decision to write this post
  • Continued with my binge of Keeping Up With The Kardashians (FYI I’m about to start series 9 – make sure to check out my post on What I Learnt From Binge Watching it )

Writing helps me cope with everything that’s going on and to get out some of the thoughts spiralling around in this crazy old head of mine. I’ve also found that sketching and getting creative does the same thing – the other day I started to doodle and came up with this;Having a creative outlet is so therapeutic and helps take your mind off of the everyday life worries. And best of all, getting out of the house and your comfort zone with your loved ones. I had the nicest time popping to town with my auntie for lunch and a quick whip around Wilko’s to get some essentials;

Its mad how much that can make you feel better.
