Feeling Connected

It's very easy to feel disconnected from yourself when you're busy. What with studying and deadlines and work and moving, I'm beginning to feel as though I'm just acting on auto-pilot and not taking enough time to check in with myself. However, I am working on it and I've made it my goal for the rest of this month to spend more time thinking and less time avoiding it.

Why I'll Never Bullet Journal

According to their website, bullet journals are a "customisable and forgiving organisation system. It can be your to-do list, sketchbook, notebook, and diary, but most likely, it will be all of the above. It will teach you to do more with less." It feels like everyday I'm reading another blog post about how all the different symbols, colours and the hours spent drawing out the index and the future log have "changed my life." But I don't just don't buy it. Here's why:

Spring Cleaning 101:

I was going to start this blog post by saying that I'm incredibly sorry for it's lateness but I've been listening to the Guilty Feminist Podcast and I've realised that when it comes to my blog, the only person I'm really accountable to is myself. So, whilst this blog post is slightly late, that's okay. Worse things have happened!

Anyway, I love Spring. For me, it's definitely a refreshing time; a clean slate; a chance to sort everything out. That's why I really enjoy spring cleaning and taking the opportunity to get my space organised and clean. So, I'm going to share with you three ways in which I'm going to Spring clean this month:

So, I thought I'd share them with you in the hope that you'll share your favourite sites with me.

1) Greatist This website is one that I read almost every day. Greatist is a website that shares "healthyish" ideas that will improve your overall well being.

Getting Your Shit Together 101

After going to Paris a few weeks ago, I've realised how well everyone else in the world is holding it together and how much of a mess I can be as a person. In order to remedy this little problem, I'm writing a blog post about it - both so that it might benefit you guys and so that it can act as a little reminder for me to not become complacent.

So, without further ado, let's try and figure it all out:

The Future of Our Planet Lies in Your Hands | How you can save the world

Recently, I've been reading a lot about the environment. Personally, I think it's a really important issue and we should be doing all we can to preserve the planet, save the bees, reduce CO2 etc. It makes me really sad to see how our society is distancing itself further and further from nature and I think the effects of this are serious. So, I thought I'd document some fairly easy ways in which we can help to save the planet - both for me to refer back to and for you to take advice from.
