Life Update: Relieving Stress

Wow, has it been a while since I’ve given a little life update! I’ve been so busy with work and providing you with new products and giveaways that I haven’t shared what has been going on with me.

I guess if I had one word to describe it, I’d say BUSY. I have been definitely feeling the effects of working long days and commuting. It’s exhausting and honestly has taken a toll on me the last few weeks. I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’ve been very tired and a little extra stressed. Plus my anxiety has been more active, bringing about the worst combination ever.

Thinking about it, it’s been a hard past few weeks since January. I’ve been extremely hard on myself, and it seems like I’ve had more bad days than good. I’ve been putting a lot of pressure on myself to the point where I’m in this non-stop competition and stress cycle. I’ve also been struggling with my social life and friendships, feeling like I am back in middle school. And to be honest, at 23, that is the last thing I need.

As you can tell, there have been a lot of different stresses floating in and out of my mind, making it hard to even concentrate at times. However, I have found even more comfort in the gym, giving me an outlet to sweat out the bad and indulge in my current Netflix obsessions. I’ve also found that my passion for blogging has increased even more with me wanting to continue to share my life and my love for travel, beauty, and fashion.

While the weeks have been tough, I am so excited for spring and upcoming trips headed my way. I’m starting to make more of an effort in my everyday life to take some ‘me’ time to reduce stress and any anxiety floating around.

I have a really exciting post coming this week that I know you all will love! In the meantime, I challenge you to think of ways you can take a little extra time during the week to reset and refocus.
