To make you feel better on your crappy day: this is my Lydi-bug, she’s a weird mix of hot mess with a cleft lip that gives her the cute little snaggle tooth that everybody loves. She loves cuddles and kisses more than anything else in the world and wishes she could help make you feel better. (Also thank you for all of your vet/fantasy blogging, it is equal parts helpful and fascinating!)
That is a simply golden expression right there. Thank you for sharing.
im really sorry to hear youre not doin too well and i sincerely hope you feel better soon, but i also just wanted to let you know i misread "i have homework due" as "i have homestuck due." take care of yourself, stay safe, u got people here for you if you need us ♥
No I also have homestuck due, I’m taking the Homestuck 101 course and I have a paper on the Evolution of Dave Strider’s perception and breaking on conformity to gender roles and heterosexuality due on Friday.
Saraaaaaaaaa I want one of your glorious screenshots pls :) also i hope you feel better soon I know how you feel I've that fucking cold for over two weeks no and my uterus decided to start war too today so I feel your pain. get well soon!!!
just a reminder that during the mourning process it is also important to take some time for yourself to go out and do something you enjoy. please don’t spend all your time in bed thinking about it. get up, eat some breakfast, take a nice shower, put on a nice outfit that makes you feel good, do ur makeup if ur into that, and go outside. go meet your friends. take your dog for a walk. go see a nice movie. go window shopping. if you really cant bring yourself to go outside, thats okay. get up and do something like do some baking or go sit somewhere apart from your room and draw or binge watch your favourite show. please, please don’t let this stop you from living your life as you normally would. it is important to be sad and to cry and let yourself be emotional, but you also need to continue living your life. your wellbeing is so important and your life is so precious 💛
I know this sounds silly but this is a very easy and simple way to make you feel motivated and organised. Starting a skin routine will not only make you feel better, it will also make you feel healthier and more confident. It only takes 10 minutes, morning and night, and you can cater your skin routine to fit your personal needs. Also it will make your skin look AMAZING.
2. Start a diary/to-do list
My tip for this, coming from an excessive procrastinator, is only put 3 things to do each day. This way you don’t overwhelm yourself with tasks, and it is easy to complete and after you have done it you will feel a lot better about yourself. Instead of doing 15 things in one day, do 3 things a day for a period of 5 days. Starting a to-do list/diary will give you the push to actually do what you have put on it. Writing down all of the things that you have to do will make the tasks seem easier and it will be less overwhelming.
3. Read a book
Reading a book that you enjoy, not one that you have to read, is a great way to clear your mind. I recommend reading for 30 minutes before going to bed. Make sure you have the book in a physical copy, not on your phone/other electronic devise, as using these before bed can negatively affect your sleep. This kills two birds with one stone: Reading, and not going on your phone before bed
Whether this is 15 star jumps in the morning or 3 hours in the gym, exercise is a great way to feel more confident about yourself. Also, when you exercise, your body releases endorphins which make you happy! :) This will also help you to be healthier which is an added bonus.
5.Do your homework the night you get it
Obviously this is only if its possible, but leaving your homework until the night before its due in is a terrible habit to get into, which just ends up in you feeling stressed. Getting your homework out of the way the night it’s set will help you feel more prepared and less worried.
6. Read ahead
About to start a new topic? Read ahead. This means you will be ahead of everyone in your class, which will make you feel more confident, and it means that once it is taught to you, you will have a better understanding of it and if you don’t understand anything, you can ask once it is taught.
7. Clean your room every night
Cleaning your room every night will mean that you will feel more organised and you won’t have much to clean up the next night. Trying to work in a messy room will make you feel unmotivated and you will be more likely to procrastinate.The same goes for if your desk is messy. A clean room is a clean mind!
8. Make your bed in the morning
I see this posted everywhere, but still people don’t understand the importance of it! Making your bed in the morning will make you feel prepared and you will start your day will a clear mind. Its one thing off of your list of things to do.
9. Drink lots of water!
Being dehydrated can be a cause for headaches, fatigue and many other things that will make you feel unmotivated and down. Drinking at least 5 glasses of water a day will not only make you healthier, it will also make you feel generally better and happier.
10. Get at least 8 hours sleep!
This one is so important! For teenagers, 7 or less hours sleep is considered as sleep deprivation. Being sleep deprived can cause things such as: Bad concentration skills, a lack of motivation and also decreases your chances of remembering something by 40%! Enough sleep is crucial for having a good day and getting those A* grades your aiming for!
