My Blogger Essentials

img_20190905_175627_5922195517143107056890.jpg


As a blogger there are always the essentials you need other than WiFi 🙈

So first of all I get my whiteboard out, think about which category I want to touch on, and then I mind map and see what I can come up with.

I have my notepad handy for list-making, researching and just taking note of things I want to go into a blog post. Of course there are doodles when my mind just goes blank but it’s always good to have a notepad handy.

My laptop of course is when I have my Blogger head on and don’t just want to do it from my phone. It’s always good to see what the bigger picture looks like if you get me.

My diary is where I can schedule in my blog posts and also keep an eye on how many I’ve done. I tend to not write too much in advance unless I know I won’t be able to write for a while.

The cute pen just makes me feel productive. Plus how could I walk past a fluffy pen…It gave me 90s vibes.

I hope the blog is a cosy, positive space, promoting wellbeing and self-reflection. I spent years letting anxiety and a lack of self-confidence get in the way of achieving my goals. Now, I’m all about finding tips and tricks to declutter your mind, create positive routines and boost confidence, so you can live the life you love.

Nyxie from Nyxies Nook

I’m a mental health blogger who focuses on eating disorder recovery, depression, anxiety and general wellness of the self. The blog was started in March 2019 in a bid to raise awareness for mental illness such as Anorexia Nervosa and Anxiety, two such disorders I suffer from. However, what started out as a hobby, quickly turned into something much, much more!

Nyxie’s Nook has become a place to talk about all mental health issues and the struggles that come along with recovery. I cover a variety of subjects ranging from general wellness right up to more specific recovery-related content. I not only aim to cater to those in recovery but to people in all walks of life.

The ball is rolling

YES I’VE DONE IT

IT’S BEEN GOING AROUND IN MY MIND

ALL THE WORDS I WANT TO WRITE

WERE REALLY HARD TO FIND

🌸

I finally got my act together and thought about this book i have been willing to write. I want to make it perfect, not just for me but perfect for all who read it.

So today I have come up with a plan and of course the title.

The cover at the moment is simple and I think I may leave it like that as nobody likes a garish looking book.

So if I plan to do two or three pages a night, I hope to have it completed by the end of the year if not before.

🌸

YES MY BOOK WILL BE HELPFUL, WHAT ELSE DID YOU EXPECT. YOU’LL WANT TO REACH FOR IT MAYBE IN A TIME OF NEED.

Wish me luck 🍀

It’s OK you can look away

Gone are the days where people simply sat down at a desk or a, table and wrote in a book… I mean I still do it but things started to consume our lives….and get in the way.

Making sure your phone is fully charged so you can scroll through the whole of Instagram liking pics of peoples lives instead of creating your own life.

Having your ego boosted by how many likes /loves and whatever Emoji you have. Sure it can make you happy temporarily but is it that important to you. Personally I just share and if I get comments and likes then I do it’s not a goal I aim for like some do.

Sometimes it even gets in the way of relationships. Do you ever think would you be able to spend a week say with your significant other with no social media interaction. You love them more I’d hope to put it aside for the time you spend with them.

Social media isn’t going anywhere soon so do yourself a favour and look away for a bit. Don’t consume this thing we call life by obsessing over someone else’s.

Chill the F out

As I write this I have plonked my headphones on and put some acoustic music on so I can get into the zone.

So many of us stress out about so many situations there really isn’t any need if you just chill the F out.

Firstly I have changed my laptop screen photo to this kanako sketch.

Seeing the word Namaste always gets me into a more chilled state. It’s only a word I know but I totally think words are pretty powerful.

I need to help my mum with a few things before tea. After my tea though I will start to get into my zen place.

Firstly I’m going to light a candle, I got this vanilla marshmallow one from the body shop that smells devine.

Then I’m going to get my planner and get all plans I need to do for the week noted down. I don’t want to forget about the important stuff.

I may put a nice soothing face mask on and just be… You know what I mean, where you don’t worry about anything for that 15 mins that your face mask is setting. Yeah that feeling.

You may have a different way of chilling out – for instance: PJs, Movies and snacks.

No way is right or wrong just make sure you take time out of your day/week to unwind and chill.

I hear there is more sun on the horizon so go enjoy

Til next time

Words of wisdom

Hi and Happy Sunday

Here’s some words of wisdom for all of you.

Every single day is different.

Some days you wake up and feel strong to face the world, you feel like you can handle anything and you think you are unstoppable.

Other days you just don’t want to get out of bed, you feel like you’re fragile like glass and want to get away from reality.

That’s life

Life consists of both kinds of days. Learn to love and support yourself every single day, either good or bad.

Learn to accept that life has its ups and downs and that’s what makes it a wonderful journey.

Thanks for stopping by

Til next time
