How To | Focus on yourself

Welcome to the ‘How To’ series – you may have seen last week I wrote a blog post all about my new little series. This new series is all about life and little guides to help you all along the way!

How To Focus on Yourself

We all have busy lives; Working, studying or travelling. But it’s important to focus on you, what you want to achieve and how to enjoy your life!

I like most of you, properly have experienced that we can sometimes get ourselves into a little rut! We worry about things, or we care too much about what others think…. well its time to STOP it’s time to focus on yourself.

Take some time out 

In the hustle and bustle of everyday life remember to take some time out. Whether that be; Reading some blog posts, watching your favourite movie or even spending an hour partaking in your favourite hobby! It’s always good to have that “me” time. This time will let you wind down and relax.

Make plans for your days off

I have weekends off work, so those two days are days in which I go out and see friends or do chores, bake, blog or go for walks! I love making sure I have plans for my days off. By making plans allows you to focus on yourself, switching off from work mode and enjoying  your time off. Planning a holiday, making an itinerary is also something I love doing! There’s nothing worse than wasting away your day off by moping around the house.

Stop stressing about others

I know from experience that it’s easier said than done. But by turning your focus away from pleasing other people and focusing more on yourself will allow you to conquer your goals. We cannot and will not be able to please everyone in our lives, it’s not humanly possible. But the people who mean the most to us will support us no matter what choices we decide to make.

Write a list

This may sound silly, but by making a list could really help you focus more on yourself and what you want out of life. It could be a list of things you really want to achieve in 2019 or maybe you are turning 30 next year so fancy writing a bucket list! It’s a great way to get you thinking about different activities and adventures you’d love to do in a timeframe! Maybe you’d just like to write a list of your monthly blog ideas, whatever your list may be – Make sure it’s achievable for you!

The tips I’ve mentioned above are a just a few simple ways to focus on yourself. I know too well that trying to juggle life, full time work and blogging is hard! But I’ve decided to make more of a balance – and you know what I am loving blogging and life right now (I’ll save my work worries for another post). It’s also very important to focus on your life, rather than worrying about what other people think. Remember not everyone will agree with what you do – But if it makes you happy who cares 🙂

I hope you enjoyed the first “How To” post and that you stay tuned for the next post of the series.

I would love to know how you focus on yourself? Or maybe you need to take time out to focus more on yourself?

 

Love

    making plans on your day off is so important. so many times I have been sad because you think I worked all week for this? Haha but at the same time i didnt go out of my way to ask anyone if they wanted to do something. sometimes you do need to just chill though, just make sure you dont make it a regular habit, it’s good to be around people.

    also, you must make goals for yourself. otherwise you will find that time just passes you by. you need to make a plan and hold yourself responsible!

    Making lists is so important and often overlooked! I find them so helpful, especially when I know I want to get something done but maybe lack the motivation or organisation to start it alone, which helps immensely! Great post x

    I love these tips to focus on yourself a bit better. I agree with the part about not stressing about others. We have to worry about ourselves first. I mean it’s not being selfish, we want to be 100% ourselves before being able to take care of others. Thanks for sharing!

    Making time for ourselves is so important when we need to focus on ourselves! Sometimes we just need to step away from everyday life and just chill and be with ourselves x

    For me taking time for yourself is so important. I have such a crazy busy life but it takes its toll and it’s so easy to forget about yourself. Reading posts like yours reminds me I need to make time. Great post!

    Oh my gosh, I needed this post right now. I’ve literally had one of those days where I’ve been moping around the house doing nothing and I’ve been driving myself mad. Will definitely have more of a plan for next weekend, I think. Great post!
