If you read my last post you’ll know that the past few weeks haven’t been easy. However, the way I have coped is by keeping my mind busy (or else everything hits me like a truck and I’m a sobbing mess). It may not work for everyone, but I thought I’d let you in on a few things I have been doing to keep my mind active (apart from crochet, because that’s just obvious)…
I was at the airport waiting for my flight and decided to check out what books WHSmith were selling for their typical extortionate price. I looked at pretty much every book and then came across ‘The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving A F**k’ by Sarah Knight, and it definitely struck me as a book I should be reading.
I managed to finish it within a day of arriving back here in Nottingham and it has really made me think, however I don’t want to give too much away!
Since then I’ve also purchased these two books:
And after asking my no.1 girl gang group chat, the majority voted that I read ‘Spark Joy’ by Marie Konda next (the girls always have my back on these tough TOUGH decisions! Haha). I will let you know how they go!
2) Keeping Fit
I have signed up to the gym! Whaaaaaat?! I know. Crazy. But the classes that they offer are just a brilliant way to start or end my day.
So far I have attended:
- Pure stretch
- Fat loss induction
- Pure fat burn
- Pure cycle
(If you hadn’t caught on, I signed up to PureGym…)
These classes have sorted out my sleeping, made me more productive through the day, and actually made me feel good about myself – WIN!
So although I left home on Saturday and it’s now only Thursday… Mummy has come to visit! And here’s a list of things we plan on doing to keep ourselves busy and make the most of the few days we have together:
- Go see Cirque Du Soleil’s Varekai! – we actually did that this evening and it was incredible! Cirque Du Soleil has never let us down.
- Visit Wollaton Park – this is where Wayne Manor from Batman was filmed (I don’t remember which film specifically, but i guess you could google it if you’re interested haha!)
- Go to a shopping outlet! Who doesn’t love a bit of retail therapy?
- And if we have time on top of that, we plan on going on a Nottingham/Nottinghamshire adventure! Who knows what that entails!
Keeping my mind busy is definitely helping me cope.
How do you cope?
Love, Lana xxx
