I thought I’d start another mini series on the blog as I try to move forward with a healthier mindset after a few months of stress. I decided one day that I wasn’t going to let stress envelop me and I was going to embrace a healthy balance between life and work. I wouldn’t say “return to my former self”, as I’ve learned a lot and grown from my experiences, but I would like to move towards a healthier and fulfilling lifestyle that my twenties should be. Talking about my stress is hard to write about. Instead of delving into something that could be quite dark and personal, Finding You, for the moment, is about rediscovering my sense of style as a “working metaphor”. The process of sorting out my wardrobe can be concurrent with sorting myself out physically and emotionally behind the scenes, which is on a much bigger scale.
Something that I have been dealing with for the past few years is S.A.D (standing for Seasonal Affective Disorder), or the “Winter Blues”, everybody can feel it each year. Rather than moan about how crap you can feel, I want to share a couple of tips that help me get through it. A more “uplifting” post, if you will. Concentration on a topic like this flutters away so quickly, so it’s taken some time to write but now it’s a beautiful day after Storm Gertrude and I’m feeling fresh (See Post from Storm Frank). I wanted to post this in the earlier part of a new year, as when it gets lighter and slightly warmer earlier, it feels promising and everybody starts getting excited. Then, come October time, I can bring you back here and we’ll try and get through it together.
