Glowy. Clear. Bright. Radiant. All things we want our skin to be, but don’t always put in the effort. I’ve certainly fallen victim to the lazy mindset that all my lifestyle sins can be counteracted with fancy skin care products. You can try to achieve good looking skin from the outside alone, but there’s one piece of the puzzle that many people miss.
By now we all know the benefits that regular exercise has on our bodies and minds, but have you heard of the positive impact it can have on skin? What we do on the surface can only do so much, but exercise goes far deeper.
Hi! Remember me? I’d forgive you if you forgot. I’ve kind of forgotten how to write, actually, it’s been so long. I last posted on the blog over a month ago and, in that time, I’ve had one guest post from a brand and I’ve written one guest post for another blogger. Actually, on that note, you should absolutely check out Lucy’s blog (who I wrote the guest post for) and catch up on her body stories series because it’s really wonderful.
So, yes, I’ve been fairly absent. Not just absence of blog posts but absence of tweeting and ‘gramming and pinning and everything, really. I can’t honestly explain what happened but I just woke up one day and fell out with it all.
If you live with a mental health condition like anxiety or depression, it’s probably not unusual for you to feel like you can’t, or don’t want to leave the house sometimes.
Tell me if this is familiar:
You go to bed determined tomorrow will be productive. But, when you wake up, you feel different. It’s one of those days. No matter how much you tell yourself to get up, get on with it, this is silly, you have so much to do; you just can’t seem to. It’s like there’s something physically stopping you. The thought of going outside is overwhelming.
