Free Yourself and Take a Moment for Yourself

Your lifestyle is very busy. My, your, your friend’s life is full of obligations and things to do in the day. What we all forget to do is think about ourselves and how we feel about all these things that happen in our lives. Almost every person in the modern world has little or no extra time to do some things that are not connected with business, work, or family obligations. It looks like everything in our lives is connected with obligations and deadlines, and what suffers the most is our physical and mental wellbeing.

Crafting Ideas to Celebrate our Key Workers

During this pandemic one thing that has really resonated with me is a sense of togetherness around the country despite our current lockdown measures. We’ve enjoyed going on our daily walks and spotting all of the rainbows in the window - which definitely sparks a lot of joy for my two and gives them that feeling that we’re all in this together.

Decorating our window has become a way of communicating with our neighbours and sharing our thanks to key workers. My husband is a police officer and I’m a teacher so my children like to try and show their thanks by doing lots of different crafting activities - plus it’s keeping them happy and busy which is a big bonus! I have put together a few ideas that you could try at home.

Is SkillShare worth signing up to?

Before I begin this article, I want to be clear that this is not a sponsored post. I simply love the site and wanted to share with you how I have been using it and whether I think it’s worth paying for the subscription. However it does contain affiliate links where by if you choose to subscribe I will receive a free month - I currently have paid a full year subscription out of my own pocket.

During lockdown I have tried my absolute hardest to not spiral into a pit of depression. For many of us this is the stark truth when having to be confined to the house and I have really had to change up my mindset and re-programme the way I view the situation. One thing that has really kept me going is taking on small projects and many of them have stemmed from SkillShare.

NHS Colouring in Pages

How are we all finding the current situation? I feel like we have got into our new normal and are bumbling along quite nicely. I won’t lie, it’s been really tough and I have noticed a huge spike in traffic on my post about being a “shouty mum” - I know tensions are high and this is super stressful, I think we have all found ourselves being that mum at one time or another. Just remember, we are all in this together.
