It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. It’s been a while since I’ve written anything that isn’t related to my thesis. It’s also been a while since I’ve felt able to write.
While I will be continuing my Self-Care Sunday posts, I wanted to find a way to prod myself into being more pro-active about my wellbeing. Thus, this, the second of my new series was born: the Wellbeing Update. Each month, I will undertake a new challenge aimed at improving some aspect of my wellbeing. This month, I’m attempting to develop a regular meditation habit. Continue reading “Wellbeing Update: Challenge 1, Week 1”
Early this week I was walking into a building to do a regular teaching job. I never got to the job. Instead I began a painful and scary week.
Well hello there! How are you? How have you been? I feel like I should apologise for (yes, again, I know) dropping off the face of the earth there for a while. And I am sorry. I’ve missed having the chats and processing my thoughts and brain dumping on you. I have. But let me fill you in. Continue reading “Taking Time and Coming Back: A non-apology.”
So, as may be clear from my last few posts, I’ve been having a bit of a rough go of things. But if you know me at all, you’ll know I’m not one to wallow. And that I’m a sucker for a good cause. Continue reading “Strictly For Jack – Self Care in Disco Time!”
Hello there! My utmost apologies for the radio silence. All will be explained (sort of) below. Today’s post is a *serious post*. I apologise in advance if that’s not up your street, but mental health sometimes requires me to put my ‘serious Sarah’ hat on. Regular progamming will resume shortly. Cheers in advance for hanging on with me! Continue reading “Why I Vanished for a Bit, or The Tale of How Real Life Swallowed me Whole”
Lads, I know the internet is FLOODED with Mental Health Day and Mental Health Week stuff. And the mantra ‘its ok to be not okay and it’s ok to ask for help’ has fused with public consciousness over the past while. And that’s all amazing. But I wanted to take a different tack with ye tonight. Continue reading “My Mental Health Everyday”
Yeah, yeah, it’s not a Sunday. But you know what? That’s ok. I think if I put that much pressure on myself to get this up and out every Sunday, then it would probably defeat the purpose. So, as long as I spent the Sunday actually self-caring, happy out. Continue reading “Self-Care Sunday – The Organisation Attempt”
Hi there! How are we all doing? Remember me? Yeah, I did that ‘radio silence’ thing again. Sorry! Hope ye didn’t miss me too much? Continue reading “Self-Care Sunday: The War on Anxiety”
Well look at that! I’m managing to get a Self-Care Sunday post up on an actual Sunday!! Wonders will never cease. Dare I say it…am I becoming…organised? Nah, there was a good hour or two there where I was convinced it was both earlier in the day and also still yesterday, but still, I’m gonna take my victories as they come, and getting my first one of these up on the right day in a month counts in my book!
