Worrying is my biggest weakness. I can be so insecure about everything. Not to mention, it’s very consuming.
I can’t even think of how many sleepless nights I’ve had, my brain going into overload and meltdown when I’m thinking of the ‘what ifs’. I’ve worried about school and university; I’ve worried about tests, interviews and deadlines; I’ve worried about confrontations with family and friends. Any potential or actual problem I’ve had, you can bet I’ve worried about it.

I have always been blessed with good skin. While I have several other insecurities about my body, fortunately, my skin isn’t one of them. Over the years, I’ve had people telling me that I have such lovely, clear skin and I really don’t need to wear make up. Thank you for your compliment, and I whole heartedly mean that; I both agree and disagree.
While I am thankful that I have good skin, because I appreciate that not everyone does, there are some things I don’t like about it. Having good skin isn’t just about having little or no spots. There are other factors too which I feel are often overlooked by others.
Having said that, wearing make up more on a daily basis has started to affect my skin. More oils have appeared around my nose and forehead and wearing products will sometimes cause me to break out. This is why having a good skincare routine is more important than ever.
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!
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.
