September Wellness Chat

It’s been a little while since I’ve posted one of these wellness chats, and honestly it’s long overdue. I’ve noticed a huge difference in how I feel when I don’t focus on ‘bettering’ my mental wellness. I’ve started doing my daily affirmations again, and I feel better and more positive already. It’s so easy to get weighed down by life, I’m excited to start paying more attention to things that make me feel better. My girlfriends and I (hi Sinead, if you’re reading this blog post) were talking about mental health recently, and how we’re all striving to be happy, rather than embracing our capacity to feel a whole range of emotions. Why must happy win? I’m making an effort to embrace all of my emotions, and remind myself that “happy” isn’t always best. Here are my five wellness goals for the month:

– Continue with daily affirmations
– Read at night (most nights, when possible) before bed
– Take 3 months off work (you know I had to put this in here)
– Deal with the things that cause me niggling negative emotions
– Go for a walk along the coast
