If you’ve kept up with me on social media this past month – and if you’re still around, thank you! – you’ll know that February was not the most positive month for me. While I try to keep a happy vibe on my blog and social media channels, it’s really important to be aware of the fact that life is not like that 100% of the time. I want to be as authentic as possible but at the same time, I’ve made it my mission to prove that social media doesn’t have to be a negative place. I’m justing keeping it real.
With all that in mind, it’s time for my February self-care checklist. I made a checklist last month to make sure that I’m keeping my emotional and mental well-being intact. So, let’s see how I did this month.
I love sharing ways that we can all be a little bit more intentional and positive with our lives on my blog, and I thoroughly enjoyed writing 10 Things To Do When You’re Feeling Down. Sometimes, when you’re feeling a bit blue, you can have trouble thinking of something to do to make yourself feel better. I’m here to help. So if you read the first 10 things to do and they didn’t inspire you, I’m back today with 10 more things you can do to cheer yourself up. You lucky things!
Before I was confident enough to use my own images, I needed access to good quality free stock photos for my blog graphics. From time to time I need inspiration for my own photography, and I still turn to stock images, drawing influences from ones I’ve seen. I searched high and low, compiled a huge list which has been sitting in my bookmarks forever, and have rounded up ten of my favourite sites to source images for you today.
Self-care is all the rage on the internet right now and I think that’s great. If we are to build up and encourage others, then we need to make sure we are looking after ourselves. Last week, I wrote a post on things to do when you’re feeling down and I promised to share my January self-care checklist with you. A list like this is a really good way for me to keep track of all the things I’ve done to keep my emotional and mental well-being healthy.
