Technology Downtime!

Published April 9, 2019 by Shay Taree

So a lot of times on YouTube I will watch videos where people discuss their nighttime routines or self-care routines and a lot of times they mention technology downtime.

Technology downtime is pretty much having some time before bed where you don’t engage with technology such as your phone, game system, tv, etc. Usually people use this time to read a book or journal so that going to bed is a relatively easy process or just so that they can think about things.

I honestly have yet to practice this. I am literally addicted to my phone. I mean I’m typing this up on my phone while sitting at my desk for work. I’m on it constantly so when I think of not engaging with it I start to sometimes get anxiety I guess. I started to realize that I use my phone for everything such as playing games and sometimes for even self-care but I know that it’s not healthy and social media plays havoc on my mental health.

So my question is if you currently practice downtime with technology what helps you? What do you do during that time and how long do you do it a day? 1 hour? 30 mins? Several times a day? Comment down below and let me know since I’m pretty interested in trying to do this.

Imagination!

Published April 8, 2019 by Shay Taree

I decided to talk about imagination on this wonderful Monday because that’s something that I use a lot. I always imagine different areas of my life for how I would like them to be. This can rage from career, my relationship, my home life, and just everything in between.

Sometimes when I go to different parties of my friends I imagine what mine would look like. I also think that being able to daydream or imagine is such a wonderful process into helping to manifest the life that you want.

I also use social media sites like Pinterest to pin ideas that I find interesting or spark an idea within me. But what are somethings that you imagine or daydream about. Comment down below and let me know.

Vision Boards!

Published April 4, 2019 by Shay Taree

I know that the big thing that everyone likes to talk about and make are vision boards. I’ve never created an actual vision board but I did decide to create a digital one using Pinterest.

I decided to try creating one after doing some research via YouTube and hearing from other youtubers that they created one and I decided to try it out. Now most youtubers I saw made an physical vision board involving a poster board, magazines, etc. I decided to try and do one digitally because well I didn’t have any magazines or other materials that they mentioned.

But I guess my main question is have any of y’all made a vision board? What was your experience and will you do it again? I think one thing that I need to get better about is looking at my digital vision board more often. So comment down below and let me know.

Should All Anime Series Start With 12 Episodes?

Published April 3, 2019 by Shay Taree

After being on a podcast on Sunday it made me think if anime series should get a trial season of only 12 episodes to see how a series may do. Similar to what happens with television series. So check out the video to see what my thoughts on this is and also comment down below your thoughts.

Positive Self Talk!

Published April 2, 2019 by Shay Taree

I decided to make a blog post on positive self talk because I feel like it’s something so many of us don’t do very often. I can honestly say that I don’t do this as often as I should. Whenever I start to feel sad, depressed, or anxious I start to think and say things to myself that aren’t true. For example I may say that I deserve to be alone, that I’m not pretty, that I’m not successful, I don’t have any friends etc.

Usually once I’m out of this mood I don’t think these things anymore but I wonder if there is a way to reverse this thinking before it starts. I feel like so many of us don’t stop this talk until we feel better about ourselves.

I know that one thing I did for a while was writing the things I liked about myself on a piece of a paper and taping it to the back of my door. Then I also wrote in marker on a mirror I had a list of things I was with positive words and then a things I was not with words that were negative such as greedy, unemotional, and jealous.

These things were definitely helpful for a time but now I look for other options. So what I usually do now is read affirmations via Pinterest or I journal. But I’m always looking for more.

So what do you do for yourself that promotes more positive self talk and how do you combat negative self talks? Comment down below and let me know.

My Mental Health!

Published April 1, 2019 by Shay Taree

So for today’s post I decided not to do a video due to really struggling with my mental health. This last week was a huge struggle when it came to my anxiety and my depression.

I just felt so overwhelmed with everything that was going on in my life and so many changes. Plus one of the major things I struggle with is feeling like I don’t fit in or like people are talking about me. I’ve always dealt with people not liking me especially as a kid and it’s something that has always hurt me. I always try to tell myself that I should continue to be myself but I still struggle with accepting myself.

For a while I actually thought of taking a mental health day at work but I ultimately decided not to. I just felt guilty thinking of calling in to work and I really wanted to be around family but many of them were going to be working as well. But I also felt a lot better after going through the weekend.

To help with my mental health this weekend I talked to my dad a lot and just really let him know what I was feeling. I also took the time to do a journal prompt and ultimately just did a lot of writing. Overall my mental health is something I’m still working on and something that I’m still struggling with. Sometimes I don’t know what else to do. But I know that it will get better.

But what do you you guys do for your mental health? Also what advice do you have for me and what I could try to work on self love and also my confidence since I struggle with that. I would love to read your comments and I hope that you all have a great week.
