Look after you!

This is your gentle reminder that it's not selfish to look after you or your mental health, it's a necessity!

This week-end do something for yourself, something that makes you happy. It can be as little as watching your favourite film/tv show, or eating your favourite snack, to playing with old toys (that's always a good one to let your inner child out) or going outside. You're important, and you matter.

Have a wonderful week-end, sending love and strength to anyone who needs it, let me know what you choose to do for yourself this week-end/week, I'd love to hear about it! <3

    Hey @Brookee

    Thanks for your supportive post. I can confirm that even though I am in the depths of my dissertation I took the evenings off last night and Saturday. On Saturday I watched The Masked Singer and Limitless (quiz show) with my family. You are your most important priority! <3

    Hey @Brookee
    Thank you for your generous words. On Sunday I went to my cousin's house and saw all my cousins, aunties and uncles from both my mum's and dad's side. This family gathering was mainly for my grandparents (my mum and dad are second cousins so both my mum's and dad's side are kinda related to each other haha). The lunch we had was absolutely scrumptious and later on we had dessert. I also got to hang out with my cousins (the girls lol) and we had lots of fun together. I definitely agree with you that everyone should do something that makes them happy, it honestly makes a difference to your mental health!

    @Laura_tigger82 That's so wonderful to hear, I'm really pleased you've taken some very vital time out for yourself, and given yourself some well needed down time, you work incredibly hard, so you deserve it!

    @Riley Thanks so much, Riley! I'm so pleased it's helped you, and I hope you're doing really well!

    @Zay Of course! That sounds like such a wonderful time you've had, it's so lovely to hear that you let your inner child out, and had a good time. I know how hard you've been working recently, so it's always great to see you letting go and having some time for yourself <3

    @Riley – Very true! I think everyone can benefit from this. I hope you are well and taking care of yourself. If you need anything, we are here for you too :)

    @Zay - Yay! I am really glad to hear you have enjoyed spending some time with your family. Quality family time is super precious. Taking care of yourself certainly does have a positive impact on your mental health :)

    @Brookee - Aww thank you! That means a lot to me. Thanks for always being supportive and kind. I have just realised; we haven’t asked you what you have been doing for self-care. Would you like to share what you have been doing to take care of yourself?

    @_Tech_Addict_Girl - <3<3 to you too! How are you at the moment? I hope you are well. Would you like to share what you have been doing to take care of yourself? :3

    Hey @Laura_tigger82!

    You are more than welcome, love! You are so unbelievably kind, and it's important to let you know just how important, and kind you are! It's okay don't worry! I'm allowing myself to rest from exercising this week, I normally feel guilty and beat myself up about it, but it's nearly my time of the month and it's a bad one, so I am aware I need to take it a little easier this week! Thanks so much for asking!

    Hey @Brookee

    Thanks so much. You are really kind and important too! I am so glad to hear you are looking after yourself too. I hope you can also treat yourself to some nice chocolates or something similar as I know how real those cravings can get! :3

    @Laura_tigger82 Hey I don’t mind any really it depends on what mood I’m in.
    What do you like doing? ☺️

    That's a very good point indeed @_Tech_Addict_Girl. I generally like to listen to music and watch Disney :3
