Talking About Routines: Morning & Night!

Published February 19, 2019 by Shay Taree

Now to be completely honest I love having a morning and night routine. Well I try my best to keep up with one. The main reason why is I love being able to have things in order and just having a set schedule makes things so much easier for me.

I promise it is like clockwork for me although there are moments where I do stick to it due to life in general or just something going wrong. In the mornings it’s me getting caught up with something that’s on YouTube. At night it’s me just being too lazy to put on my pajamas. Also a lot of times in both instances it can be me getting distracted by what’s on my phone.

This is why in the mornings I have downtime turned on so that my social media’s are blacked out and unable to be used. I also get really interested in watching other people’s morning routines on YouTube.

Trust me I know this can sound weird but this has really been helpful for me. Sometimes it gives me information on how routines are beneficial and sometimes it’s helps to give me ideas on what I can integrate into my routines.

Some of these things include meditating, having downtime for my social media’s, journaling, drinking water in the mornings, and also exercising. I realized doing some of these things in the morning and some at night made me more energized, focused, and productive.

So now I want to know if you have a morning or night routine? If not would you like to start one? Why or why not? Comment down below with your answers. Also I definitely recommend searching on youtube morning or night routines.

Yay It’s Friday!

Published January 25, 2019 by Shay Taree

I’m so happy that it’s Friday! Friday are definitely one of my favorite days besides Saturday. One thing that I love about Friday’s is being excited that the weekend is coming up. Even if I have nothing planned it just feels nice to be able to know that the next day I don’t have to work.

This weekend I’m going to try and start a new anime which I’m not sure what it will be yet but regardless I’m excited. I’m also excited to be able to try a weekend routine such as working out, meditating, praying, and also journaling. I do these things doing the week but doing them on the weekend also excites me. It’s my me time and I definitely enjoy it.

But one thing I also like about Fridays is being able to reflect on my week. I’m able to think about all the small wins I had during the work week and even things I want to try harder at.

Like a small win for me during this work week was feeling a lot more productive at work due to listening to podcast. Also I was able to eat pretty healthy while at work. Plus working out everyday once I got home. Another small win was in my personal life where I actually realized what makes me happy a lot of times. And also speaking with an individual that sometimes I feel insecure around due to me kind of putting this individual on a pedestal.

But overall this week was pretty awesome! What’s a small win that you had during this work week? What are you excited for this weekend? Comment down below and let me know.

Seeking Validation?

Published January 24, 2019 by Shay Taree

Now I decided to title this blog post as seeking validation because I realized that was what I was seeking when it came to Instagram. I was seeking to raise my Instagram followers to validate for myself that I was doing better than another individual. Who actually didn’t know we were in this insane competition. I would constantly check where their followers were and would hope that mine got higher than this individuals.

It wasn’t until speaking with my co-worker about one of her friends who is seeking the same thing that I realized what I was doing. I was able to look inside myself and ask myself what was I doing. I realized that I was being so stupid and those followers are just a number. Half of these people I don’t even know and probably will never talk to.

I realized that we all seek validation for different reasons but then I realized that that validation isn’t going to make anything better. We are going to continue to want more and more just to make ourselves feel better. We have to seek that validation through ourselves and not other people.

This is why I’m trying to do more self-love this year. This is why I’m trying to not use social media as much or take it as seriously. I’m trying to keep my focus on producing YouTube videos and helping others because I realize that those things make me happy. Those things make me feel good and the best thing is that I don’t want anything back.

So do you think that you seek validation? If so do you know why you seek it? Are you going to change that? Those are the questions you should ask yourself. If your someone who doesn’t seek validation then I can say I which I was like you and I want to know you secret haha.

But that’s my blog post for today. I hope y’all enjoy it and be sure to check out my social media handles and follow me if you like. Ironic I know haha. But I honestly I hope that y’all enjoy the day and be grateful for all that you have.

Self-Confidence & Self Care Journey!

Published January 22, 2019 by Shay Taree

So since the beginning of this year I’ve been continuing to be on this journey of self-confidence and self care. The main reason why I’ve decided to do this is because I’ve been wanting to stop really depending on how people think about me and start trying to love myself how I am. Plus I’ve been wanting to have my own self-care routine.

So one of the things I started doing was greatly lowering my social media usage. I know from before I mentioned doing this but over the holidays I definitely fell off the wagon. But now from the hours of 10:00 pm and 9:00 am I don’t allow myself to use it. This makes where in the mornings when I’m getting ready for work I’m unable to check social media.

This has also allowed myself to do other things during the morning that is more helpful for me. Such as journaling, meditating, and working out. If you like I can make a video soon about my morning routine and self care routine. But so far this has been helpful for me since now I don’t waste time just helplessly scrolling through my feed.

As for mediating and journaling both of these things have been super helpful and I’m excited to do them more. I’m trying this meditation app called Insight Timer and I’m using the classes on there to work on certain mindsets that I want to change. When I combine that with journaling it makes me feel so happy during the day and much more calmer.

But those are the things that I’ve been doing during this new year. What have you been doing to make yourself either physically or emotionally better? would you like to see that video where I discuss my morning routine or the apps that I use on my phone that help with this process? Comment down below and let me know.

Have a great day!

Self-Confidence Journey: Time To Limit Facebook!

Published December 10, 2018 by Shay Taree

Happy Monday everyone! I know I usually do a video on Mondays but I was able to record so I’m doing a blog post instead. As many of you know I’m continuing on this self-confidence journey and this time I’m adding on Facebook when it comes to limiting social media.

In some ways I honestly think that Facebook may be harder than Instagram and this is because not only do you scroll but people post articles that get you sucked in. Well I know I get sucked in and end up spending more time on there then I wanted to.

As for my Instagram limit I’ve actually been doing pretty well although one day I did go over the limit by a lot. But this was mostly due to the fact that I had an issue to take care of on there. But on a good note I went down like 15% when it came to my total usage so I’m very happy about that. But overall I’m excited about the progress that I’ve made.

So let’s see what happens this week and I know that I’ll be able to succeed. Also feel free to comment down below on your ideas or thoughts on what I’m doing.
