10 Things to Do Before 2019

Here are 10 Things to Do Before 2019: Decluttering: Don't bring unwanted, unused, purposeless junk into 2019 (that includes things, thoughts, feelings, experiences, and people). Clear out your wardrobe, cupboards, inbox, downloads, books, notebooks, receipts - all of it! Think about what you really want for the coming year and write it down in CAPS!… Continue reading 10 Things to Do Before 2019

Break It Down – Goal Setting for 2019

I've been super excited about setting my goals and intentions (and wishes) for 2019 already, but I know that for some, goal setting can be really difficult. It's normal to feel a little anxiety (or a lot, as I've experienced some years), or even depression at this time of year. It's daunting. It's overwhelming. Time… Continue reading Break It Down – Goal Setting for 2019

Change the Narrative

I don't think I'm the only one who tells myself stories (and no, not because I'm an author). I mean the stories we tell ourselves about of lives and our Self.

Of course, the first reason I write about mental health and self-development is to help people. No, not because I am some expert or because my life is so great and my MH is in tiptop condition.

Well,… Continue reading Stages of Life

How to Make Better Life Decisions

I don't know about you, but I am rubbish at decision making! I nearly always second-guess myself and give myself a headache with all the overthinking *sigh*. Aside from pros and cons lists, decision making can be tough. And there's been times when a pros and cons list just hasn't been enough to help me… Continue reading How to Make Better Life Decisions

Cheer for Yourself

I will be honest, this post comes from a place of upset and is emotionally driven - but I felt it would be important to share. I look around my living room at home and you know what I see? Pictures of my brother's graduation, my mother's graduation, my sister's trampolining and gymnastics competition photos,… Continue reading Cheer for Yourself
