Today I have decided to blog as much as possible for two reasons.
- To set myself a challenge
- To spread awareness of anxiety.
I will blog all day, I intend to refresh and remind people what I blog about, spread awareness of anxiety, have a laugh and maybe throw a few beauty tips in too! I will post pictures and give ideas to help distract people from anxiety, panic and worry.
Now take a look at this old photo. Here I am young with not a care in the world listening to my music!! First tip of the day is to dig out old pictures! You could spend hours looking through pictures and smiling at the memories, this will distract you from anxiety and encourage you to embrace all the good times 😊
Another tip taken from the photo, listen to music 🎵 I have clearly loved listening to music from a young age. Music can help distract you from everything for a while. I occasionally put my headphones in while pottering around in the house. Music can help you reflect and gives you time out to think! Start by downloading an uplifting playlist heres a few tunes from mine.
- Amazed- Lonestar
- My girl-Temptations
- Mirrors- Justin Timberlake
- A sky full of stars- Coldplay
Now get your photos out pop your headphones in and have a wonderful day 🎧🎵😊
So this is an unusual post for me.. But prior to my meltdown I joined scentsy. These beautiful electric warmers melt wax which give off wonderful scents around the home. Now I joined partly because I needed a distraction from University, and I have enjoyed having this little business. I have been able to use the products, take pictures of them and enjoy selling them. I have one warmer in the conservatory and one in the living room, my house smells lush which means one happy Kirsty. There are many scents to choose from and I choose ones which bring back memories, coconut reminds me of holidays, cherry reminds me of my old mini and flowery scents remind me of spring time.
Please check out all my pictures and have a look on my website.. capture memories through scents 😊 you will not be disappointed!
So many to choose from 🌹🌼 🍒🍉🍋
This next post is about one of my distraction methods. Although it seems strange last year I purchased a colouring book and would colour in most nights. This gradually stopped and then almost became forgotten about until last week. I found my colouring books while sorting through a cupboard, when I felt slightly relaxed later on in the evening I coloured for over an hour. This may appear a tedious method of distraction but during that hour all I focused on was the quotes in the book and the colours I was using. I have now tried to colour in everyday, some days I am busy and forget. And other days I still could sleep every hour. But this is one distraction that I have decided to use regularly. Although this may seem like a silly idea I would encourage you all to try it and embrace that inner child! Get those felts and pencils and be distracted for a while!!
One more thing, always try to make someone else smile no matter what you are going through.
Be someone’s rainbow!!
