Recently it’s been brought to my attention that I have been kind of in a bad mood a lot. I believe it. I was stressed out by work, frustrated by not running and annoyed about my lack of sleep.
I definitely feel like I am making changes to help brighten up my days though. Today I thought I would share three things I’m doing to stay positive!
Look at memes and share them with friends!
One of my new favorite things to do at night is to take about 15-20 minutes to look at meme accounts on Instagram and send my favorite ones to my friends!
This is such a relaxing and fun way to end the night. It sounds silly and simple, and it is both of those things, which is why I’m LOVING IT.
I actually love memes.
Do you want me to start DMing you memes at night? Leave me your Insta below and I totally will but they’re all going to be about makeup, cats and work. Basically what my life is about.
Read my favorite blogs.
When work picks up I slack on reading blogs, even my favorite ones. I now realize that when work is super busy staying connected to the blog world is even more important.
Sometimes the engagements I have with you guys are the only non-work related social activity I’ll have all day – besides hanging with Adam and Cecil of course.
Is that sad? lol oh well.
I think most people don’t have many social interactions during the week. We’re all tired when we get home and have those things we have to do: exercise, cook dinner, take care of the kids, walk the dog, play with the cat, etc.
Blogs make friendship so convenient! 😀
Plan trips! Even just local ones.
During the first half of this year Adam and I didn’t really plan any vacations. We went on one week long cruise, which I am not taking for granted, but I want to do more exploring!
I really want to plan a lot more “long weekend” type trips throughout the rest of the year even if they’re just staycation kind of activities. It’s so nice to have something to look forward to.
For example, for 4th of July weekend Adam and I booked into a nice hotel on the beach. Sure the hotel is less than 2 miles from our house but it’ll be cool to be right on the water and to see the fireworks show from our balcony.
Just wish we could bring Cecil but don’t worry he’ll have someone staying with him and watching the house as well. He’s a high maintenance cat who doesn’t like to be left alone. He needs someone to open the chicken pâté and serve it to him.
I can’t with that little face! And that foot!
What are some simple things you do during the day to stay positive?
Know of any good meme accounts I should be following on Insta? HAHA!
