It’s been a while since I stopped blogging daily. Just over two months. 5 and a half years of daily posts and now I put zero pressure on myself to get blog posts out.
I don’t regret quitting at all. I feel like when I started daily blogging I had loads of ideas, time, motivation and stuff to actually write about. Maybe I ran out of ideas, or motivation, or both.
I can’t tell you how free I feel. I used to get anxiety every time I made social plans because I wasn’t sure when I’d be able to blog. My mind would go overdrive trying to figure out my schedule and when I’d have a spare 30 minutes or so to get something done.
Now I am much more relaxed around plans and can make time to see my friends and family without feeling guilty.
Another thing I’ve done is spent a lot of time playing the piano.
I’ve also started playing Fortnight. I was a big gamer a few years ago but then blogging came and I didn’t have time to do both. I used to play Call of Duty a lot and loved it. I’m glad I’ve started playing this as it’s a good escape and the games don’t last too long so it’s not a massive time investment.
I’ve also started taking baths! Just spending time in the bath watching an episode on something on Netflix is something I wouldn’t have done in the past. Now I really enjoy it.
Speaking of Netflix – I now catch up on TV shows. I didn’t use to watch TV apart from with my boyfriend before. Now I watch things on my own. I’ve just finished Working Moms and now I’m watching season of 3 of Atypical.
Overall, I’m a lot more relaxed and I feel like I’m actually living life now.
This might have been the best idea I’ve ever had.
