Hey Friday!! (Little different to normal Friday thread)

*BananaMonkey**BananaMonkey* Lyrical PosterPosts: 5,049 The Mix Elder
Hey Everyone :wave:

SO... I thought this Friday thread could be a little different. Yeah we're still gonna share our weekend plans, but I thought it would be cool to link it into our wellbeing, so.. we could share something we do on a weekend, that is just for us that help us feel better about ourselves or pick us up if we aren't feeling our best. Sound good?

So, today I am seeing my sister and nephew, then tomorrow, thinking a nice chilled day, looking after my nephew in the afternoon/evening. Then Sunday getting things ready for being back to work after a week off.

So, some things I like to do to help me feel better are go on a long walk, just me, taking in my surroundings. My head usually always feels clearer after a long walk. Taking a shower and using body lotion. I love the smell and it cheers me up. Also listening to music really loudly, my favourite songs. :heart:

Look forward to reading your replies


Sharing is caring :heart:





" And everywhere I am, there you'll be, your love made me make it through, oh I owe so much to you "
" So I say thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing, thanks for all the joy they're bringing, who can live without it, I ask in all honestly what would life be? Without a song or a dance, what are we? So I say thank you for the music, for giving it to me "

    Hey Hey,
    I'm looking forwards to picking up my niece tomorrow afternoon and having her to stay at mine for the weekend. She's 4 now - and to be honest just hanging out with her in general is good for my wellbeing - she's so 'in the moment' and enjoys really simple things - I feel like she gives me a reason to take notice of what's around me more :)

    We'll be making some popcorn on Saturday night which is such a simple little thing, but will make her very excited! :d

    I'm going to my girlfriend's. We're both a bit out of juice so we're planning on having a really lazy weekend because the next month will be really busy for us both! I've also not slept well in a few weeks, so hoping to end that too!
