I used to get so wound up by the littlest things. I see it all the time on my Twitter timeline. People having rants about things that really don't matter. I try to take a step back and think 'what am I getting wound up about?' before I let something trivial effect my mood. So what if X Factor let the wrong person go, so what if a celeb has said something contraversial, does it matter if someone sold something that they won? So what if everyone is wearing black?!! There could be perfect reasons behind everything that you just don't know about so why get upset by it? At the end of the day, does it really effect your life?
that got a bit 'rant' there didn't it... perhaps I should practice what I preach huh? ;)
I just think it's really important to switch off, and take sometime to relax each day. Even ten minutes a day makes all the difference.
A few things that are guaranteed to make me relax are very simple. Talking to my bestie always makes me smile, I can be having the toughest day and every single time she makes me laugh and I'm feeling tonnes better.
After the bath, I pop on a warm tracksuit or PJs and get myself a cup of Earl Grey and light a candle. It's lovely how different scents can effect your mood and the NV Lavender and sage velvet candle puts me in such a calm mood. I like to have it on when doing a bit of yoga too or I use my Headspace app which really helps to step away from the stress of every day life for a while.
Thefrosted glass with gold flower design is really pretty and it has 35 hours of burning time so that's me sorted for a good amount of me-time for some time now!
How do you switch off?
