I’ve procrastinated this winter, I get like that occasionally, buzzing with thoughts, unable to focus on just one thing. I usually wake up with song lyrics stuck in my head, or sometimes poetry. I find one of the worst side effects of procrastination is my inability to sleep at night. I stay awake brainstorming into the late hours and not sleeping properly as a consequence, it can be so disruptive to your daily routine.
Sometimes the constant rush of social media gets a little toxic, that’s one down side to being a social media marketer. It can be hard to switch off at the end of the day. I find myself looking at social media accounts, all of the time, even when I wake up during the night, and when I’m not doing that I’m learning and researching about new features on social media platforms. Yikes!
So yesterday, to switch off I went for a walk in the countryside with my little girl. I completely disconnected from my phone. I was in absolute awe, the sun was pouring down from the vivid blue sky. It felt warm on my skin, and I finally took my coat off outdoors. It was the first of the springtime sunshine and oh, how I have missed the sun.

I woke up this morning after such a deep sleep, I felt replenished. I’ve been taking my CBD oil from Kannakan (read my review here) daily, and my sleep is really starting to improve. Often, when I’m stressed I get bouts of insomnia, but, I must admit the CBD is really helping.
I also downloaded a new app which has really helped with my anxiety, and late night procrastination. It’s called Limitless Hypnotherapy and I just love it. It’s a collection of hypnotherapy sessions that you can listen to as you fall asleep, or during the day, whenever you feel like you need a session really.
There are many sessions to choose from and each one takes you into an immersive world. Hypnotherapy is an effective treatment for many things, so I love having a collection that I can turn to when I need it. Mediation sessions are really benifical for calming the mind, so if you’re anything like me with a mind that’s constantly on the go I can’t recommend this app enough.
Channelling my Springtime energy
The freedom from those shackles of constantly feeling tired, all of the time, has left me with an unfathomable amount of energy, so much so, I don’t know what to do with it all!
Creatively, I have been channelling my energy into my new Instagram account. I love the way it is developing. I feel like I’ve had a sudden brainwave or something and now have a clear direction for it. You can follow it here.
Part of the aim behind it, is to share my love of blogging- and encourage others to blog also, but secondly, I decided I wanted to start sharing products that I like. I wanted to share the process of blogging, what goes into it, my journey with blogging and what I actually do on a daily basis- I kind of got sick of people telling me blogging wasn’t a real job and that my business wasn’t legit!
It’s been really refreshing having a new project to focus on. I feel like I’ve got my zest for life back and my passion for what I do has been restored. Thank you Limitless hypnotherapy!
I feel like I am transitioning into a new phase of my life, a lot like the changing seasons. My pride is irrelevant now, I know that I’m being seen, my blog is slowly growing and adapting, so now I must focus on what good I can do with that. I am passionate about self-fulfilment and personal growth with my new found springtime energy.
How can I improve today? What can I achieve? I am walking at last into the springtime of my life, and I feel optimistic about my future, whatever it may bring…

A spring time new beginnings.
