Why It's So Important To Protect Your Mental Health Online

When I began my blogging journey 8 years ago I never imagined that it would have a negative effect on my mental health. It was such a positive and joyous place to share my thoughts on whatever I was loving at the time and it’s not until recent years have I realised how important it is to protect your mental health online whether you’re a content creator or someone who consumes online content. You can’t move for posts and articles all about how the online world is so damaging for our self-esteem but what those posts always forget to mention is how much good the internet can do for people. I know there are certainly things that I struggle with but there are plenty more that I have to be grateful for and this is how I protect my mental health online.

Let's Talk: Feeling A Little Lost & Seriously Uninspired

During the June monsoon (my nickname for the last 10 days of horrific weather) my mental health very quickly plummeted. It probably wasn’t entirely the weather's fault but it certainly didn’t help matters for me and a lot of feelings came bubbling to the surface. Feeling uninspired is something that I hate, I’m so incredibly fortunate to have a creative job that so many people would absolutely love to have so when I’m not making the most of it then I feel like a terrible human.

3 Years Of Vegetarianism

June marks 3 years since I made the choice to cut meat from my diet and I can safely say that it’s the best decision that I’ve ever made. Diet isn’t something that I talk about a lot as it’s something that is so incredibly personal and what works for one certainly doesn’t work for all and we all know that preaching about an animal-free diet doesn’t inspire anyone to make a change. All that being said though, today I wanted to share what 3 years of vegetarianism has looked like for me.

30 Before 30

Last weekend I turned 29, which means I’ve entered the final year of my twenties which quite frankly is a relief. The beginning of my twenties was full of anxiety and worry and even though I know that I’ll never say goodbye to those feelings entirely the fact I feel a lot more settled in who I am as a human is not something I take for granted at all. 30 feels like a huge milestone to reach as well after so many uncertainties in my younger years I know getting to that point will feel way more exciting than turning eighteen or twenty-one. And here are 30 things that I’d really like to achieve before I turn 30.

5 Things I Find Comforting When My Mental Health Is Low

I don’t know what it is about the end of April that I find so hard but just like clockwork, my mental health feels pretty low. We’re only just coming out winter in the UK and I imagine there are still plenty of chilly days ahead as I don’t find it truly warms up until about June, and the lack of sunny days certainly take their toll after a while that’s for sure. Over the years, I’ve developed a mental health tool kit when I notice things are slipping and these are all the things that I find to be a huge comfort when I might not be feeling my finest.

What To Do When Social Media Isn’t Making You Feel Good

From the title, I know what you’re probably thinking but don’t worry this isn’t another post telling you that social media is evil, think of this as more of a cautionary tale. As I'm a human who absolutely loves social media and all the things that it’s done for my life, after all without it I wouldn’t be sitting at home typing out this post for you to hopefully enjoy. But, I’m also not someone who doesn’t acknowledge that when used incorrectly it can be incredibly detrimental to our mental health and can have serious consequences. And over the past year I really have fallen into a bad pattern of behaviour with social media and here is what I’m doing to not only fall back in love with it but prevent myself from doing the same thing all over again.

Everything I Wish I Knew Before I Went To University

When the 10-year challenge was floating around the internet a few weeks ago it made me realise that 2019 marks exactly 10 years since I went to university to study editorial and advertising photography. When I look back now at my time studying there are so many things that I would change and do differently, but they do say hindsight is a wonderful thing for a reason.

5 Bloggers Who Remind Me Why I Started

Leading on from Monday’s post where I chatted all about why I think 2019 will be an awesome year to be a blogger I thought today I would share the people online who always inspire me to keep going and remind me why I started this whole blogging thing in the first place. When I first discovered the world of beauty blogging it all felt so new and magical, and even though it wasn’t new at all there was something so wonderful about it because it wasn’t really about money or the numbers. It was simply about people sharing things that they loved. And the world of blogging has changed in many so ways for the better but there are some things that I certainly miss about it from when I started but luckily there’s a handful of bloggers that balance it all perfectly and they are…
