So, its time to set a new weekly goal.
I’ve been contemplating how i could challenge myself this week, my last goal was very much tackling infertility head on and if you read my blog Sunday Funday – Week review you will know i spent much of the week speaking to infertility and Menopause charities discussing how i can help, which was really promising, however the whole idea of my blog is to show and document my journey to living a happy and fulfilled life after an infertility diagnosis, and failed IVF cycles.
With this in mind i want this weeks goal to be something that takes me a step closer to being able to take a step back and look at my life and thinking, yeah, i’m pretty happy right now, something that can make me feel more connected to my emotions and hopefully reduce some anxiety.
Lately i have been using some of the adult colouring in books, i find it a great way to chill for an hour and process thoughts and feelings, generally letting my mind wander to where it needs to be, all the while being able to let my creative juices flow, saying this, at night after a long day its the last thing that i go to for relaxation and i think it would really help me wind down on an evening.
I then read this post from Millionaires Digest and i totally agree with all the benefits it can have, so inspired by that post;
Goal number two ; Spend at least half an hour at night listening to music and colour in to wind down and process the day.
I’ve started already….
I’ve felt like there has been so much to do lately and so much rushing around and not a great deal actually getting achieved so i am hoping this helps slow down the pace a bit, and if it can help me sleep better that would be a bonus, If your feeling stressed or anxious, there are some great adult colouring books out there and it is really worth a try….here are some of my favourites;
