So apparently I started this blog to go along side my job, I’m a weight loss coach, which I love, but clearly I never got any further than registering. I signed in today not really knowing what to expect, I couldn’t even remember which account was attached to the email. Upon opening the app I found that my one and only post was the generic “this is your first post” post, who knew I was so eloquent? Honestly, I don’t really know where this blog is going which I’m pretty sure is the first sign you’re going to fail, knowing what you plan to write is half the battle. So today I am starting a blog fresh for 2019.
Well then, how do we focus and pick a topic? In my case, we probably don’t 🤣. Anyway, I’m going to pick a theme, focusing on the areas in my life that I want to change and showing you how I did. When I worked on experiments, both at school and uni, we discussed how you had to leave instructions so if others want to test your ideas they can do, so I will explain the best I can, let me know if I sound patronising. This might be me learning to be a tidier person (good luck…), losing weight, attempting to get some muscle back in my arms or even saving money and making stuff myself, on the cheap. After all, crafty stuff is fun but sometimes you just want to have it at a cheaper price at which point DIY ends up more expensive.
So today I’m picking it up again, the blog that is, lets make the theme general wellness. Life coaching, wellness, weight loss, DIY, de-cluttering the home and the mind, strengthening the mind (building resilience), the body (exercise and diet) and the soul (healing, self-care etc). I believe the world is wounded (and thats not taking into account climate change) and unless we start with ourselves it won’t get better. I have an Instagram and Twitter if you have questions or suggestions for posts both are @pinklilith.
So with 2019 just around the corner, where should our fresh start begin?
We recently moved house and at the moment it’s a manic mess, something shown to have an adverse affect on the mind. Clutter and mess is shown in some research to aggravate anxiety, as someone who is fairly stressed these days, the calm in my home seems more important now. At the moment my curtains, in the living room (which I adore), hide piles of boxes as of yet unpacked….
The room needs decorating, the carpet needs cleaning and eventually replacing too but one thing at a time. For today, I’m going to do a 1 hour challenge in each room, then if I have time and still have motivation I will do some more. First room is the living room, de-clutter, vacuum and clean, with Piano Sleep – Moonlight Sonatas on Spotify. Let’s see how far I get…
Probably should start with the rubbish…
