Living That Puzzle Life

Okay, I’m a huge dork and I’m not afraid to admit it, as evidenced by countless blog posts on the minutiae of history. I enjoy spending time out with friends but I also appreciate having time to myself in the peace and quiet where I can think (or not think) for a few hours at a time! While I don’t know that they are as popular as they once were, I love digging into a good puzzle and making my through the shapes and corners. It might be dorky, but it’s a part of me!

How to Relax in Your Late Twenties

For a lot of us, relaxation doesn’t actually exist in your late teens and early twenties. There is always a Starbucks trip to be made, always a road trip to go on, always something to be done. However, when you have finally arrived in your late twenties, you start to realise that you have to take care of yourself and you won’t always bounce back immediately.

I’m not flying out until the 28th now (please send your positive thoughts my way!), so I’ve got some time to relax. What’s the plan?  Continue reading

Stress and Relaxation at Work

We all have stress. It comes in different forms, it affects all of us in different ways, but it makes all of our lives harder. Working at a university means that the end of August through to the end of September is pretty awful, work-wise. Thousands of students who all want things done immediately mean that I will be non-stop from start to finish of every day. Relaxation at work seems to be a bit of an oxymoron, but I have a plan to stay relaxed and motivated throughout the stress!  Continue reading

I’m a big kid, er… an adult kid: Colouring Books!

I posted in June 2015 about getting an adult colouring book, and I am happy to say, my collection has grown by leaps and bounds via Christmas! I always loved colouring, and I still do now. I had set my Enchanted Forest colouring book aside, as I wan’t really feeling the forest deal after a while. So, which reignited my colouring love??  Continue reading

We are firmly entrenched in fall, and dare I say, moving closer to winter?? (I love winter, so I’m saying it.) Now that 85th is over, I finally have a little bit of time in the evenings again to sit and read with a cuppa. Obviously, music can be an important factor in relaxing; these are my top five songs to help you relax!  Continue reading
