My Tips on Calming Your Nerves Down

Hello lovely people of the internet!
Right now I’m sitting trying to recover from THE flu. Yes, congratulations to me for being sick during the summer holidays. Kudos. 
I’m writing this post to ask you guys to share some relaxation/ anxiety- relieving sites or apps. With my home being renewed, living in a temporary home, finding new blogpost ideas and keeping up with my blog, sometimes having a “ me” time is very hard to find. I’m trying to set a goal for myself of meditating 5 minutes a day, today in total I meditated for 10 minutes! I think meditating in the morning before the day starts is a great idea as it prepares you to have a positive mindset for the day.  Here are some tips and applications you can download to put yourself at ease. 
  1. Breathe app. I came across this app via Carrie Hope Fletcher. Ever since I’ve downloaded it , I’ve been checking in ( you add the emotions you have been feeling throughout that day and it gives you a  meditation type based on your emotions) I usually do 5 to 7 minute meditations when I do it and it really makes me SO relaxed.

2) Headspace app. I found this about a year ago when my mum was very sick and the doctor visits were hopeless. I was meditating with this app when we were visiting doctors or going to the hospital for therapy. I would recommend it to anyone dealing with anxiety or panic attacks while  on the go.

3)Self care. I can’t emphasise enough how much self care is CRUCIAL. Whether it’s pampering yourself or taking a bath or shower with your favourite shower gel or just a pat on your shoulder just because you did something that you were afraid of, they are all the SAME. Please please please reward yourself. You have to take care of yourself. Your body tries to keeps you alive, so you have to thank for that  by giving it a present. 

4)Drink water and get enough Zzz’s. My 15 year old self wouldn’t believe this! I never knew that whenever I drank enough water and had a good night’s sleep, I was in a good mood! If you are someone who forgets to drink water, get yourself a cute water bottle and splash some lemon or put a cinnamon stick or a piece of apple in it. That will make you love drinking water!

That’s all from me now everyone! Leave a comment below about your ways of relaxing and self-care! See you in my next post!
