So I am gonna leave some links for the products which I love to use so you don’t have to keep looking them up yourselves because I mean why tell you about it if I can’t help you out at the same time.
You know what, I am going to guess you guys already have this in your room, but, if you don’t, click here and you can get one now. Anyways, you may be like ‘how the hell are lights gonna make you relax’ and I would be like ‘bro… shut up’. To be honest, I don’t know why. I mean it isn’t the light, it is the colour of the light helps me. I mean it is like school. The building doesn’t make me hate life, the actual school part does. You know what I mean? But yeah, I usually like to turn off my main light and switch on the orange-yellow light which makes my room feel really nice and cosy. For me also, it just calms me because it makes you feel safe and at home. Then there are other colours, of course, like blue which help me to calm down. Actually, I am pretty sure that blue is supposed to make you feel more relaxed. Hmm? Maybe I will have to make everything in my life blue and all will be sorted. Well, at least I can do that with my lights. And you don’t have to be a sad bum like me to have these lights. I mean it just transform your room to whatever vibe you want it in. It is also great for at night when you are so comfy and you can’t be arsed to move, because BOOM, remote control. Yeah, your welcome.
These are an investment and a half. So I got one of these for Christmas and I was a bit skeptical. I was like, is this just a placebo affect or what? And for me I move a lot in my sleep so I was like is this gonna work for me. Let me tell you right now, I slept so well. And then I was talking to someone about it and they were like, therapists literally use these because they help to release certain chemicals or something like that and I was like damn. Truly is a life saver. Also, for a quick wee tip, you should buy a weight which is 1/10th of your body weight or something like that. It was weird though because I knew it was gonna be heavy obviously but like it blows your mind because you are looking at a comfy blanket, yet, it could take your head off it someone threw it at you. But yeah, click here anyways if you wanna get one and I definitely do recommend them for someone who gets really anxious, or if you just don’t sleep well, or if you just want one. I mean you do you.
I don’t want nobody on here to be embarrassed about doing this step. If you grew up being told that you should toughen up, I am sorry, but please try to realise that your feelings are valid and that writing them down is such a great way to lay them all out. You can do this in so many ways as well. I mean you can just have your basic, lined diary, which you can get by clicking here. What is also a great idea that is becoming more popular are bullet journals. I only started this at the beginning of the year and I didn’t really understand how it could help. But what I realised is that it help to have all of your negative thoughts out at the end of the day. You can link up some emotions with sleep or exercise patterns and you can just track or write whatever you want that will make your life easier. It do be fun to look through Pinterest at all the artsy work people do, try to recreate it, and fail horribly. But click here so you can get a bullet journal too. I also posted about how to write your bullet journal so go check that out too if you are stuck because it can be confusing.
I do have to admit, I only do this in desperate situations because I can get bored easily but when I do it really helps because it helps you to escape if you know what I mean. Especially during lock down, it transports you away from the walls you stay in everyday and takes you to wherever you want. It is truly special. I will link some of my favourite books but also a link to a kindle because I have found that they are better for me. You don’t have a clunky book in your hand, it is light, doesn’t take up a lot of room, and you can buy other books on it as well. The first book I recommend is Noughts and Crosses, this is actually a series of books but I will just link the first one for you so you can find out if you like it. I won’t spoil anything, and you can read about it on the description in the link, but it has everything you could want in a book. This one is actually a book that I couldn’t put down, and that is saying something. Another book I recommend is Opposite of Always. Now this one is a feel good book. I mean the plot is really sad but what I mean is that it shows true love. It shows what you want others to do for you. It shows so much emotion and I could read it over and over again. I 10 out of 10 do recommend. The last book I am gonna mention is The Freedom Writers. OK I am not gonna lie to you, I have not read the actual book yet BUT I have watched the movie (which I also highly recommend) which is about the story behind this book and I can’t wait for my mum to finish it so I can read it. This book contains real life stories of a classroom of kids who live really different and difficult lives. They each have an entry about their story and from the movie, I know that their stories will really open your eyes to the world of others which I think we all need so that we can be more knowledgeable about others lives and not just our own. Maybe you might even find someones story you relate to, but either way you are going to gain something from that book. Knowledge or reassurance that you aren’t alone. Right, and last but not least, here is the link for a kindle. I am not gonna lie to you guys. This is expensive, well depends on who you are obviously, but the good thing is that you can get books for cheaper on this instantly because you don’t need more paper, you don’t need it shipped. stuff like that that bring the cost down. You could also say it is better for the environment, but either way, kindle or not, you should try to read more. Escape more.
You may be thinking, ‘how the hell do earphones make you relaxed, this is ridiculous’, and to that I say, ‘sorry I can’t hear you, I have my earphones in’. The great thing about earphones is that they help to immerse you in the song or the show or whatever by blocking out more sounds from the real world. Sometimes if others are really loud or you just can’t take anymore of the world, putting in earphones can help to block that out more. I am not saying it is the cure but for me it helps me to focus on the words in the song or the different sounds in a show. It helps me to concentrate and focus on that moment. I will leave a link for wireless earphones and also non-wireless earphones just in case you prefer one to the other or have different price ranges. I mean this may not work for everyone but it sure is worth a try.
Thank you so much for reading this and I hope this helps you to relax a bit more. I do have other methods too but I will mention them at a later date. But for now, lay back, relax and try to transport yourself into a new world. Please like and follow if you want more content like this. I also have a few codes for money off on different brands of clothes which you should check out. Other than that, I hope you stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.
