Feeling The End Of Year Run Down

It’s that time of the year again where I am Feeling The End Of Year Run Down! Honestly, this year seems to be hitting me harder than before. 2019 has been a massive year for me with losing a parent, adjusting to our new home and having to work extra weekends. The extra weekend work I have been taking on this year has seriously taken its toll on my mind and body more then I realized.

I have been needing the extra pay, but honestly seeing as how much of a toll it has taken on me mentally and physically health it hasn’t been worth it. Next year I will be pulling back so that I can also enjoy time with family and other things I enjoy doing.

I have also been super consistent with my blog and social media during this year despite everything that has happened. I definitely will be doing a break over the holiday season to just relax and it will be great for me to just completely switch off which has been hard because my mind is constantly thinking of work or blog ideas.

I also find that taking breaks ever so often aware of social media and blogs can give you clarity. It’s amazing how much stress and anxiety social media can give you. Stressing about why losing followers or not the number of views you are looking for. I have been dealing with that a lot lately, all the effort and time that has been put into my blog and me not getting the results I hope for. I have been trying my best not to let the stats control me, but it does get rather disheartening.

Do you guys do blog breaks? How do you find it?

    I just came back from a ten days long blog break, because I was feeling a bit uninspired and it is totally ok to have a writer’s block. This is when digital detox comes in handy. You always come back feeling so much more fresh and inspired xx

      Me too, just not want to have to think about anything other than food and what series to binge-watch.

    I’m so sorry about the loss of your mom. I can only imagine the pain. I hope you get more rest and relaxation. Also I’m following you on Instagram and supporting you there!

    My blog has definately taken a back seat in this last quarter of 2019 – I’ve had SO much going on with work and in my personal life that I just haven’t had the patience to blog on top of everything else!

    I’ve just had a little break now before the christmas content, and I’m excited to start with my christmas themed content soon, I love this time of year – but its so important to take the time you need!

    End of the year reflection is like the “dessert” of the year. It is a perfect opportunity to assess significant accomplishments, provide closure to the previous year, and to prepare the ground for a new year ahead.
