I feel like I’ve been a little negative in recent posts. What with life’s curveballs, stressors, dilemmas and general adulting, I’ve been a bit fed up. It’s getting dark and it’s getting cold and I don’t know about you but, at the moment, I feel like I’m having to make extra efforts to keep myself in a healthy mindset. So here I am with a post for both you and me: small self-care saviours.
I long underestimated the importance of what we call the small things. The things that seem insignificant, that we take for granted, or don’t make time for. The Winter months can be difficult for many: the darker, colder days and incoming party season can make day-to-day life difficult, let alone when it comes to festivities. This time of year calls for extra self care, and it’s not always the big things that matter. It’s the small things.
