Can you believe that we’re halfway through LexTober already? If it isn’t obvious October is my favorite month of the year. I love the changing of the leaves, pumpkin patches, Halloween, all things scary, and the coziness you feel on a crisp October morning. Over the last few years, this month has brought me many changes to my life — some good, some bad. But regardless, this month is meaningful to me and I think it’ll always be.
So at our halfway checkpoint, I wanted to take a moment to talk about things I’ve been doing the past few months to get through any bad days that I’ve had.
When I feel anxious I go for a run — I blast music, I take deep breaths and just let myself relax through the running.
When I feel overwhelmed with things — I make lists. From most important to least import. I take a day and I just get it all done.
When I feel sad I take a shower — I turn off the lights, plug in my essential oil diffuser, make the water as hot as I can take it and cry it out if I need to. I’ll shave my legs, let my shampoo sit, exfoliate my skin and then put on a face mask right after.
When I feel depressed — I take myself out, get a cup of coffee and treat myself to something whether it be seeing friends. shopping, a lunch date. I take time for myself doing something I would enjoy.
When I feel like my life is a mess I clean and organize — I’ll dust, I’ll vacuum, I’ll do the dishes, I’ll do some laundry, and I’ll rearrange.
When I’m feeling lonely I’ll start a new book or show — This is always a good thing to do with yourself to realize it’s okay to feel this way and its okay to be alone; learn how to enjoy it.
With everything that has happened this last year, I’m sure life hasn’t been fair to any of us. I love coming on here talking about clothes and house decor and silly little things along those lines that in the grand scheme of things, mean nothing. BUT I also love to be real with you gals too. I love spilling my heart onto my little corner of the internet and being real with my readers, very real because we all need that sometimes. So here’s a couple of tips on some things I’ve been struggling with and what I do to pull myself out of it. So, go outside, get some fresh air, and twirl in the crunchy beautiful leaves.
