I love you all so much for sticking with me the last few years. Getting to know each of you and seeing everyone grow has been so special to me! I am beyond grateful for each of you. Hold on while I have an emotional breakdown.

2019 brings a lot of new and exciting things for me and you. However, for me to grow this grand idea of mine I have to sign off blogger more often. I am going to putting my time and effort into different things.

I am not leaving this blog I just won't be blogging as much as I have in the past. I have to say it's going to be a difficult change. I have been blogging since 2013 and for the past two years, I have blogged almost every week. That's a lot of time and effort put into my blog. I am going to miss blogging and everything it has given me but the change I am making is going to help m grow my audience and number of people I can reach out too.

What is this grand project?

I am starting a wellness newsletter!

This has been something I have been wanting to put together for a while now but never had the time. I am so excited to grow my audience beyond bloggers. I want to inspire others to strive for wellness in their lives. I also want others to know they have the potential to be much more than they are already. There are so many topics I want to talk about in these emails. They go out every Monday!

In order to get this project started, I need help and that's where the GIVEAWAY comes in. I am giving away a 15 dollar Barnes and Noble gift card! All you need to do to enter the giveaway is subscribe to my newsletter.


The winner will be chosen by random on December 30th.

1// Don't let what you are anxious about sit in the back of your mind
Is the project that's due two weeks from now or the phone call you have to make at some point in your day making you anxious? If you are anything like me you'll think about those things non-stop until you do them! These are the kinds of tasks that sit in your mind and make one anxious. You think about doing them and you try to not think about not doing them.

Let me tell you something, my friend. You can stop worrying about these tasks as soon as you start them. My best advice is to do it! Start that assignment you've been putting off and you'll realize it's not as bad as your mind's hyping it up to be. As soon as you start the task that is giving you anxiety your anxiousness will be relived! It's as simple as that.

2// Be positive proactive in your thoughts.
It's easier to let your thoughts be negative. It's so much easier. Sometimes when we get anxious all we hear are the negative thoughts passing through our minds. Phrases like, "I can't" "I suck." and "I am not good enough" can be on reply when you're caught up in anxiety but please don't let those be the only thoughts you hear! Remind yourself that you can and that you will. It's going to be okay and it's never as bad as you think it'll be. We have a tendency to let the negative overweight the positive when situations get rough but just because we feel a certain way doesn't mean it's true!

3// Get some sleep!
My creative friend! I know you don't sleep because of your minds always busy but sleep is your friend, not a time consumer. Let your body rest and repair it's self so it can function tomorrow! A sleepless brain is an anxious one and that's not ideal. Get some Z's!

4// Exercise
My all-time favorite anxiety relief. I know that working out isn't always a go-to anxiety relief but trust me it works wonders. Physiologist are now expected to ask their patients about exercise and if they are getting the proper amounts. It's a leading key to a healthy mind. So exercise. You don't have to hit the weights and workout so hard your dripping in sweat you just need to get moving in ways that make you feel good. Walks, yoga, dance, and bodyweight exercises are a few great examples for a moderate workout. Let your body workout its anxiety! (See the pun?)
