So here it is… my maiden MySundayPhoto.
And here’s why. I’ve had a super a hectic but very productive weekend.
Yesterday I attended my first blogging conference hosted by the wonderful Scarlett Dixon who runs ScarlettLondon.com. A big shout out must also go to Ana of The She Approach whose presentations were so insightful and should hopefully help me schedule a little better and reduce my stress levels!
Although I’ve been a freelance journalist for 18 years, I often feel overwhelmed by the blogging world.
A) I’m pushing myself out of my comfort zone
B) I’m a technophobe and ‘old’
C) I’m learning a heap of new skills
D) I’m doing all of this alongside the day job which means I feel as though I never switch off
On top of this, I am forever pushing myself even though I cannot remember the last time I felt even 60 per cent.
Yet, stress reduction is essential for chronic illness recovery and I’m determined to get my histamine intolerance under control and improve my general wellbeing.
With this in mind, I’ll be sharing a picture every Sunday that demonstrates how I’ve managed to relax either during the week or at the weekend.
It’s a small step, I know, but it’ll hold me accountable (I hope) and stop me operating at 150 miles per hour.
I’m kicking this off with a snap taken in the garden this evening after a morning spent indoors working. Can anyone spot the house bunny pretending to be a statue?!
I’d love to hear from anyone else who struggles to relax. Are you trying to reduce stress in your life also? If so, why and is it working?
Please do let me know how you’re getting on in the comments below.
