What are 3 Things I do even though they don’t benefit me?

Hi everyone! I first want to apologize for the inactivity on my blog. I’ve been super sick and completely unmotivated because of it. I also had to travel out of state for a day with a friend, which was fun, but because I was sick I didn’t enjoy it as much as I would have if I was feeling okay. I’m feeling a bit better today so here I am to share a journal prompt with you all!!

What are 3 things I keep doing even though they don’t benefit me?

1. Eating junk foods

I think that eating unhealthy foods definitely deserves to be number one on this list. Of course it’s okay to occasionally treat yourself, but eating junk foods on a regular basis is not good. Unhealthy foods only give me temporary satisfaction. But at the end of the day they just make me feel like crap.

My eating habits have been something I’ve been working on for a while, but I have been getting a lot better at eating more nutritious food as of recently. I’m working on eating out less often and only shopping for healthy food. So far so good!

2. Sleeping in really late

I have a huge oversleeping issue. Sometimes I can control it and other times I’m just too lazy to get out of bed. Even when I should. I love to sleep a lot, but at the end of the day I just feel like it wasted time and I end up overtired from sleeping for over 9 hours.

Recently I started to work less in my room and near my bed and only associate my bed with sleep.  I was a little doubtful as first, but It’s honestly helped a lot.

4. Procrastination

I feel like everyone has this issue. But sometimes it’s worse than it should be. I typically procrastinate because of boredom, and then I end up not getting stuff done. My phone has become my worst enemy when its time to get stuff done. And simply the Internet in general.

I usually try to keep my phone and laptop out of eyesight when working on something. When I’m working on the computer I have to try extra hard not to press the ‘new tab’ button.

 

Most of the things on this list I noticed are stuff that gives me temporary satisfaction. But in the long run they end up bring me down. So I’ve realized that I need to think more of the long term effects of things whenever I’m about to do something that isn’t so good.

I hope this article was helpful! Honestly it was helpful for me to right this since I realized somethings about my long term goals.

Feel free to leave a comment and let me know how you guys liked this prompt!

How do I Take Care of Myself: Journal Prompt

I’m right on time today for this journal prompt! I love this one too-

How am I taking care of myself?self care

If you asked me this question a while back, I would have probably answered with something like “I dunno….Feeding myself everyday”. Now I feel like I can definitely answer this question with way more detail than that.

At one point I really did not know what self care actually was. Honestly I thought it was just simply eating, sleeping, breathing, etc. all the basics that keep you alive.

I never thought of all the thing like exercise, treating yourself, having coping skills, and all of the other ways to care for yourself. I bet I couldn’t have even told you what a “coping skill” was.

Now I have several ways of “self-care” that I use every day such as, writing, drawing, going out for a walk or drawing.

(A lot of creative stuff:) But the options are limitless. As long as you are doing that that make you happy and won’t harm you! Something as simple as eating breakfast every day can be considered self-care.

Everyday I try to wake up at a decent time, and go out and exercise, even if it’s only something that’s small. Doing this has a honestly boosted my confidence quite a bit. Especially when it comes down to how I feel about my body. I try to eat both nutritious and delicious food everyday as well.

self-careBut I try to do something every day that is both fun and relaxing, like sitting down with a book or cuddling a kitten. These two things are definitely my favorite.

The hardest time to care for yourself is usually as school or work but it’s important to remember to give yourself a break from time to time. Don’t neglect your stress or how you are feeling. If you need a minute, then take a minute. Remember that you should always be your first priority

There have been times at work or school where I needed to step outside. I have also brought in a little fidget toy or a coloring books sometimes as well. Doing these little things have made it a lot easier to deal with stress. As well as help the work day go by a little smoother.

I’m still learning a lot about self-care, and through that I’m also learning about myself. I can’t wait to share more tips on this topic and if there is anything in specific that you’d like to know, don’t be afraid to ask!

I have loved writing this journal prompt and I hope you all have enjoyed it as well!

Successes and Fails and Dealing with them

Talking about both successes and fails can be kind of a vague topic, but I’m going to try to dive deep and see what’s behind both my successes and my fails. Is it motivation? my mood? Or just pure luck?

successes

Honestly I’m not sure, but I’d like to share to try to motivate everyone out there

I think my biggest success was actually getting out there and starting this blog. I never thought I’d become a writer for a blog, or of any kind for that matter. But here I am writing this post. My 2 biggest fears with starting a blog were, simply failing, or getting judged. I think in my short time blogging, I’ve experienced both, but only on the side of motivation, happiness, and support. Of course I’ve tried writing a post and completely couldn’t do it, or someone has said to me “You have a blog?….why..?”

I’m hesitant to share my posts sometimes, I’m afraid that I’ll be judged. Overtime I’ve learned that most people, if they are true friends of yours, will support you and cheer you on through your journey as a blogger, whether that be big or small.

Another success of mine is learning to be myself. I’ve always have some trouble with this throughout my life. I was bullied as a child, at school and at home. This basically taught me to contain myself in a bottle without causing a bother to anyone around me.

I didn’t learn to express myself until recently. At the time I was fed up and finally moving into a new environment with new people, so I let loose. I went a little crazy at first but soon I got myself together and I found out who I really was inside and what I wanted to make of myself.

If I put all my successes to the side, then I have my fails.

Which honestly are all very little things that somehow manage to bother me throughout the day. Such as saying something embarrassing, or writing a not so great blog post. They aren’t super serious issues but I feel like they add up.

Dealing with the little things can be hard. I’ve learned how to overcome little embarrassments.

The best advice I’ve given myself, which I’ve mentioned in past posts, was that what happens today won’t matter in 10 years. Or possibly even in 2 weeks. I pretty much live by this advice. I seem to embarrass myself quite a lot at times or mess up in tiny ways at work and such. Once I began to realize how after some time these things didn’t matter, I saw an improvement.

I’m proud of myself, how I’ve grown and where I’m going. The biggest thing I’ve realized through my fails and successes was that everything is a learning experience.

I know that we only live once and everything I’ve done, I have learned something. I wouldn’t trad that for anything

Hope you guys enjoyed this post! Feel free to Contact me or leave a comment!

How have you Handled Being the ‘New Kid’? A journal Prompt

Okay, I know that this post is super late, I’m sorry!! I’ve been busy with school, work and home live. But, I’m officially free for full time blogging, I even bought a planner for my blog posts! I’m more than excited for this

summer and what I have planned for my blog.

How have you handled being the ‘new kid’?

 

This journal prompt is important to me because as child, and even sometimes now, I have had trouble fitting in. When your a kid you might believe being the new kid is the end of the world, especially if things don’t go so well. That feeling can carry on to your work life and college life as an adult.

The biggest thing I learned is that you have to be yourself, there is no way you can change yourself, especially more people you don’t even know. Getting to know people can be hard, but it’s best for them to know you for you.

I remember having to transfer schools as kid. Other kids who were my bullies transferred along with me. I became quiet and different, I tried to fit in and pretend to be someone I’m not, and I kept this up for several years. Until eventually I actually became quiet wherever I went. I used to be a very loud student who used to get in trouble for talking to much in class, but soon I was the opposite.

Nowadays, I’m still quiet in new places, but I don’t try to be someone I’m not, I’m honest with everyone around me and I’m more able to find real friends.

Always remember that non of the things that happen now that are ‘awkward’ and ’embarrassing’ will matter in 10 years, I always give this advice to myself.

Overall I think I handle being new to a situation a lot better than I used to as a child. I still have issues with being too quiet and too shy though. I believe those problems stem from transferring schools as a child and forcing myself to stay quiet. Which is why my biggest advice to anyone who is a new kid at a school would be to just be yourself and take it day by day.

Don’t isolate yourself, stay quiet and shut in or pretend to be someone you’re not. You are you, so be the best you can be.

Hope you guys enjoyed this prompt, I really did!

Top 5 best Articles on Overcoming Mental Illness

download.jpgDo you need a motivation or pick me up? I’ve been searching around the internet for article about overcoming mental illness. I usually like to read these type of stories when I’m feeling a bit down. So I’ve put together my 5 personal favorites and I’m excited to share them. These stories are both motivating and powerful and I hope that you guys enjoy reading them.

  1. Right here is an older story about how a man dealt with his schizophrenia, even though its older it still has the same inpact reading it. Maurizio Baldini’s story

  2. This is a great success story. This person talks about how reaching out to PHS gave them much support. Success story

  3. I love this story. It’s about a family member who should have reached for help. It’s kind of a sad one, but holds a very valuable and strong meaning. Dans story

  4. This short story is on the same website as the last, but very different. They use an accurate metaphor to describe their depression and anxiety. Steph’s story

  5. This blog post is about celebrities who have overcame their mental illness. I think it’s especially important to read celebrity stories because they try to portray their lives as being so perfect, but in reality, just like everyone else, they are people too. Celebrity Stories

 

I hope that you all enjoyed these short stories. I’m sorry for this article being a bit short, I’m dealing with some computer issues so I had to be a bit quick! But be sure to stay tuned for my journal prompt on Tuesday!

Feel free to contact me Here! And leave any comments or feedback that you wish!

Sending much love to you all,

What would you ask for if a genie granted you 3 wishes?: A journal prompt

Here’s a delayed Journal prompt I’ve owed you guys!7486431222_640d5c139f_b

So, what would I do if a Genie granted me three wishes?

Now I’m not talking about wishing for another three wishes, or getting the genie who rips you off, I’m talking about three genuine things that I would wish for. So what would I want?

  1. A world with no abuse towards animals- This is wicked cheesy but means a lot. I’ve always been an animal person and I can’t stand seeing and animal getting hurt. I would say both animals and people but I feel as if this either would be 2 separate wishes or would just count as this same thing since technically humans are animals.
  2. Better writing skills- This is something that would really benefit my blog. As a blogger, I write a lot, so of course I’m getting my practice. But I wish that becoming an amazing writing would just be something that happens over night.
  3. That I could do things more quickly, but still good- There never seems to be enough time in the day to do everything I’d like to do. I would want time to go by slower, but I would like to be able to do things like chores quicker, so I have more time during the day.

 

Idownload‘m honestly really interested to see what you all would wish for if you had the chance too. I chose this prompt mainly for the feedback on it, but I thought you guys could also see what I personally believe in, and what I would want for myself. I would honestly love for a genie to come around and grant me my wishes. (but we all would, right?)

Big thanks to everyone reading!! I’d love to hear back with some feedback and what you guys would wish for from a genie!

Love,

Rosie
