About this blog
As someone who suffers from anxiety, trichotillomania and stress-related eczema, I understand the importance of looking after one’s wellbeing, especially when faced with all the pressures that modern-day life brings, and thought it might be a good idea to set up my own wellbeing blog. I have previously written ‘content marketing’ (student-related blog posts) for a bus company, which gave me the idea and confidence to set up my own blog.
I see this as my own little ‘pocket’ in cyberspace where I'll try and keep my own wellbeing on track. I write for myself but if people are interested in reading my blog and find it helpful, then that’s an extra bonus; it would be counterproductive (not to mention ironic!) to get stressed about making a wellbeing blog ‘successful’......whatever that means. The fact that it merely exists already makes it a success in my eyes given my limited coding skills. Besides, success is subjective and means different things to different people depending on their life history and circumstances. For me, I’ve come to realise it should simply mean being healthy and writing contributes to that by giving me a certain freedom of expression, a sense of joy and of flow which I often struggle to achieve when talking.
As you can probably see, the blog is not the most sophisticated in the world (no links to organise the posts and in an ideal world, this post would have its own separate page), but maybe I’ll play around with it and learn how to code that functionality with time. I'll be posting my own observations or reflections, summaries of wellbeing talks or events I've been to and positive affirmations from time to time. I’ll occasionally also try to post some humorous content because hey…...what would life be like without the ability to smile or laugh at its many oddities? I’ll probably post once a fortnight, mostly on weekends. So if you’re interested in the random ramblings of this neurotic introvert, feel free to check back from time to time.
