December 20th: How I’m dealing with not getting the Christmas I planned 2020.

Hi readers,

So I don’t think many people are getting the Christmas they planned this year. It hasn’t been an easy year. Now further disruption from announcements of tier four restrictions in the UK. It’s dishearting, but here is how I’m trying to cope and stay positive for Christmas 2020.

Video calling– As I am in a long-distance relationship, I know video calls can be a saviour. It’s comfort. I’m going to try calling and video calling as much as possible.

Trying to distract myself- I’m going to do as many indoor Christmas activities as possible.

Look forwards- There will be hopefully many more Christmases and occasions I will be able to celebrate.

Take one day at a time- When life gets too much I’m always trying to tell myself just take one day at a time.

Accept it’s okay to be upset– I’m not pressuring myself to be completely happy always. Life doesn’t work that way. It’s how I react and pick myself up is the main thing.

Thank you for reading

Take care Lauren x

23rd November: My first time attempting flow yoga.

Good evening readers!

This weekend I had my first try of flow yoga. It was an online class and some parts tested me.

It’s like regular yoga but quicker and more flowing movements. It did work my core and strength.

I think I worked off a few calories from it. I never expected yoga to be that fast.

Luckily the instructor had clear and easy it instructions.

Would you give flow yoga a try?

Thank you for reading.

Stay safe Lauren x
