It’s safe to say that I have been feeling bloody awful as of late, I’ve taken on far too much with very little support and I have burnt myself out. So I have had to take action and start to regain control of my life so I have hired my first employee at my business to help with the workload and started to change lifestyle habits. Below are some of the ways that I have taken to help me glow up!
Kicking the Booze
I’ve actually taken a bit of a break from drinking. It wasn’t serving me anymore and was actually beginning to get in the way of things that I was trying to do. I feel so much better not waking up with a hangover and find that I can do a lot more with my time. This doesn’t mean I’ve given drinking up entirely but for now, I am seeing myself as mainly a nondrinker for the foreseeable.
You are what you eat
The pandemic messed around with many people’s diets but as I now work from home I make sure that everything I buy is fresh so that I can make healthy homemade food every day. I was guilty of being the person who ordered deliveroo every day so this is one way that I can fight back again the podge and make sure I am nourishing my body as well as I can every day. If you have any healthy recipes that you would like to share, let me know below!
Surround yourself with beautiful things
Since setting up my business I have mainly been working from home and as my flatmate has recently moved out, it was time to redecorate to make the place feel more comfortable for me. After getting up to date with the latest 2022 interior design trends I went to work choosing my new Handmade cushions and made to measure curtains – which has made a huge difference as I am starting to like my flat a bit more again, which is a miracle after being trapped in it for several lockdowns.
Exercising like a champ
I have been making sure to go out and exercise every day without fail now. I hadn’t realised until I brought a fitness tracker just how few steps and exercise I was doing every day – never good! As the weather is starting to get bright and sunnier I am excited to be able to use my evenings more to get out and about more. I am certainly not a winter gal and hate it being cold and dark earlier in the day. Eurgh.

New Eyewear, don’t care!
As my job is mainly me staring at a screen all day – the joys of working in digital marketing, I have made sure to visit my local opticians to get my eyewear updated – which I love, as I like my glasses to be statement pieces. I’ve also ventured into the world of contact lenses as well after becoming paranoid about ‘Digital Eye’.
For a bit of fun, you can even test your eye health over on www.contactlenses.co.uk where they have created two eye challenges for your colour vision and your focus:
- How Good Is Your Colour Vision Test – Can you spot different shapes in squares of various colours?
- Can You Spot It – Can you spot items in 6 different settings to test their perception and focus?
Make sure to let me know below what your results are, I like to think I did pretty well but you never know!
So what about you, have you been feeling in a bit of a rutt and decided to make some changes? If so, what are they? Let me know below or continue the conversation over on our social channels.
Until next time!
