A Few Of My Favourite iPhone Apps

I am definitely one of those people who’s obsessed with their devices. The very first thing I do in the morning is check my phone and the last things that I do before going to sleep is check I won’t miss out on anything. Even if I wake up in the night, I have a quick scroll through Twitter and Instagram before trying to get back to sleep. Do you do this too?

February 2020 Round-Up

February has come to an end. The second month of the century has been completed. I’m very thankful that it didn’t last as long as January did. I thought that January was never going to end.

February is a funny little month. I always feel like February is the month of change. I’m not sure if there’s a reason that I feel that way, I just do.

I figured that since February has ended, I would share some of the things that I’m ‘currently’ doing.

5 Minute Tasks To Boost Your Productivity

There’s plenty of moments in your life where you are doing nothing. I like to call these ‘in-between’ moments. These are the moments when you are ‘in-between’ other things.

We can waste a lot of time with our in-between moments without even realising.

A little way that you can notice how many in-between moments that you have is by tracking the minutes of your day. When I do this, I notice that I take 30 minutes a day just dancing around the room to music, 2 hours scrolling through Twitter, and at least 5 minutes a day waiting for the kettle to boil.

Sometimes we have in-between moments when we are putting off doing something. I could happily reorganise my bookshelves or organise my wardrobe by colour just to avoid responding to emails or tidying.

In our mind, we probably still class this as being productive and in some ways it is. However, there’s other things that we should be doing instead and deep down, we know that.

Things To Tweet When You Need New Ideas

I spend way too much time on Twitter. I could tweet constantly and if my followers wouldn’t get annoyed then I would definitely do it.

I love tweeting and talking to people through twitter and I never run out of things to say. That is why I decided to make a list that might be able to help you think of ideas too.

The Most Magical Quotes From Frozen II

I am literally not able to get over the fact that Frozen II has been out for about two months at this point. Frozen II was realised in the UK on the 22nd of November, 2019 and I didn’t actually watch it until the 26th of November, 2019. That wait nearly killed me!

Since Frozen II’s release, I have watched it quite a few times in the cinema and I would happily watch it even more. Since I’m still not over how great it was, I thought I would share some of my favourite and most magical Frozen II quotes here on my blog.

One of my goals for 2020 was to unlock my creative side a little more. I used to spend so much of my time drawing, painting, taking photos and writing. I miss it so much as I just felt so much more free when I was expressing myself through creativity.

How To Prepare Your Phone For A Disney Trip

Visiting a Disney park is a dream come true. Not every Disney fan is lucky enough to be able to visit a park in their life. If you are lucky enough, you’ll want to make sure that you’re all ready to make your time as magical as possible.

It’s not only important to get yourself ready but you need to prep your phone too.

I don’t think that people realise how important their phone is for the perfect Disney trip. Everything used to come on paper several years ago. You had your fastpasses on paper, your maps on paper and you had your meal reservations on paper. But, those days are gone. Everything is digital which makes your phone so much more important than you would think.

Self Care Tips

Imagine that you’re looking after a young child or a toddler. You would want to make sure that they had the best care possible. You’d make sure that they got enough sleep, let them have time to play and have fun, make sure that they have 3 meals a day and keep them clean.

Now, imagine that child is you. You would have wanted to be treated like that as a child so why not treat yourself like that now that you’re an adult. Just because you don’t have someone parenting you, doesn’t mean that you need to stop caring about yourself. You deserve to be treated well so here’s some self care tips for you.

♡ Give yourself at least one day of rest per week. You could sit around all day binge watching tv, sleep in or stay in bed all day, take a day away from your phone, read a good book, take a slow and steady walk, eat something yummy or you could just spend some time with yourself.

♡ Create a list of things that you are grateful for or just things that make you happy. You can then look back on the list whenever you need a little pick me up. I find that even just making the list can put you in a great mood and leave a beautiful smile on your face.

♡ Turn off the notifications on your phone. I swear that this is an actual game changer. It’s such a good feeling because you end up being ‘free’ from your phone for a bit. Not having the notifications on takes away some of the pressure that you feel when you hear a ping. You’ll start spending less time on your phone and more time enjoying the real world.

♡ Do something nice for another person. You could write a letter to a friend, help a stranger on the street, buy something little for your partner or you could take someone out for a meal. These acts of kindness are so important because they make the other person feel loved and valued which helps both their mental health and your own. By making someone else smile, you will feel a sense of purpose and it makes you feel happier.

♡ Stay away from the negativity if you can. I know that this isn’t always possible but if you can avoid gossip, complaints or insults then you will instantly feel a little better. By surrounding yourself with more positive and radiant beings, you will feel so much happier.

♡ Practise self love. The way that you talk to yourself matters. What you tell yourself ultimately becomes your reality. So, try your hardest to fill your mind with positive thoughts and watch yourself blossom. Loving yourself is not an easy journey. You’re not going to just wake up one day and feel better. It’s a process. You’ll probably have setbacks but you’re going to get there in the end.

♡ Don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need it. There’s so many people out there who are willing to listen and give advice. Call a family member or friend when you are facing a problem or when you’re feeling low. If you don’t want to talk to someone you know, there’s plenty of phone or online services that you can contact. Asking for help is not weak, it’s actually very brave.

No matter what kind of issues you are going through in life, you are not alone and there’s so many people out there that love and value you. So, please try to love yourself too.

How To Make Creative Goals

Have you ever found a random list of goals that you set yourself years ago? If you’re anything like me, you probably set those goals and then forgot all about them. I know how disheartening that can be but now that you’re reading this, everything is going to change.

Don’t set ‘traditional’ goals

There’s a couple of reasons why traditional goals are actually holding you back. The first reason is that you aren’t actually creating goals, you’re creating dreams. We are always told to go big or go home so we do go big but by doing so, we are also making our goals impossible to achieve. These kind of goals also reply on other people. For example, maybe your goal is to reach a certain amount of followers on Instagram, well that would be a good goal if it didn’t rely on other people. It’s up to other accounts to follow you and therefore, your goal isn’t in your control.

Set process goals

To me, a process goal is something that you can actively control in your daily life. It doesn’t reply on anyone or anything else. For example, I could make a goal of how many views that I want to get a day on my blog but that it’s in my control. However, I could make a goal to upload a certain amount of posts per week. I can’t make people view my post but I can control what I put out into the world. It doesn’t matter that it’s a small goal, it matters that I’m following the process. If I made my goal that I wanted to reach 1,000 views a day, then I would probably end up feeling really bad about myself if I didn’t reach it. That is why you need to set goals on things that you can control.

Try making goals in three month incriments

There really is no need to set your goal timeframe for a whole year. So much can change and happen in that period that it’s hard to keep yourself feeling accountable. There’s also no time to put off the things that you need to do because you only have three months to reach your goals. After the three months is over, maybe you can extend your goal for another three months or you could adjust your goal completely. That is totally up to you but like I said, a year long goal is just way too long.

Tell your goals to anyone and everyone

I’m not sure why but people have become secretive about their goals. No one wants to share their goals list just on the off chance that they don’t reach their goal. We are all so afraid of failure and even more than that, we are afraid of other people seeing our failures. No one does everything by themselves and that is why you should share your goals. The people in your life will be the biggest motivators for you. Have people check in with you on your goals.

These tips are definitely working for me so I would love to know what helps you with setting goals that you can actually accomplish.
