THE NEW CHANGES I’M MAKING

 

Sometimes changes happen without you really noticing it. And it’s only when you sit down and think, do you realise how much effort you’ve been putting into in your life, ready to see a difference.

Today’s post is all about the new changes I’ve been making in the current months, and maybe more importantly, why I’ve started making them in the first place.

KNOWING MY LIMITS

I’ve always been pretty good at knowing my limits, but last year I really pushed myself past them, and it never ends well does it?

I’ve really started tuning into my body and mind more, and if it feels like I’m cramming too much into my day, I make the sensible decision and delegate where I can. For example, when I’m writing this, I’ve just got back from work. In a few hours I have a couple of errands to run, plus my dad also needs picking up from the station. Then I’ve got to zoom back in time to have my dinner and go to my yoga class. For me, that seems a bit much, especially when I want to have slower days in the run up to the wedding. So I’m asking Dan if he can pick my Dad up for me instead. It’s not about being lazy or selfish, it’s about knowing when you’re stretching yourself a little too thin than what is good for you.

EXPLORING MY IMAGINATION AND CREATIVITY

All my life I’ve had a wild imagination, and it’s nice to be using it for a positive reason, instead of over-thinking. Of course, I’m talking about my Instagram! I’m loving coming up with different ideas and how I can showcase my creativity. Plus, it’s fun that it involves Harvey (my dog too). Head on over and let me know what you think.

EMBRACING FAST, AND SLOW DAYS

I’ve always been the type of person to love days at home, but I find if I have too many of them, I easily start feeling really down and lonely. On the other hand, if I have a few too many busy days in a row, I get really burned out. Luckily, I have a great support network and I’ve managed to create a great work schedule which means I have one day off work, aswell as a few afternoons too.

That way, I look forward to planning things for me to do and spending my afternoons how I’d like- catching up on Netflix, reading outside, blogging, baking etc. And when I am busy, instead of it becoming a slog, I really embrace it and make the most of the company I’m with.

All in all, I’m really happy with how things are going lately, and I hope my positivity shines through this post too!

      I definitely need to remind myself to slow down too, I spend so much of the day feeling rushed when there’s no need to be! Thank you for popping over to the blog and leaving a comment lovely 🙂

    I think I’m just starting to slow down a bit myself and that’s definitely started with knowing my limits – putting less on my to do list but also adding nice things to that list too like making sure I sit outside with a coffee or read a chapter of my book!

      That’s one of my favourite things! Sitting in the sunshine with tea and a chapter of a book 🙂

  • Your positivity truly does shine through in this post Natalie, those are beautiful things to embrace. I love the idea of sharing tasks out with a loved one, I often spread myself too thin and am too stubborn to ask for help. Something I need to change I think!
    Sending ever so much love your way,
