BLOGMAS – DAY 20: CAROL CONCERT IN PICTURES

I cannot believe there are only 5 days until Christmas! Who would have thought it would come around so quickly. I also can’t believe that I am writing this Blogmas post whilst having a break from essay writing as, yep, I’m still in uni! Continue reading “BLOGMAS – DAY 20: CAROL CONCERT IN PICTURES”

BLOGMAS – DAY 12: PERFORMING AT THE UNIVERSITY CAROL CONCERT

Every year the University of Worcester hold a carol service in Worcester Cathedral.

BLOGMAS – DAY 2: SELF CARE ADVENT CALENDAR

Hello and welcome to my second day of Blogmas! I don’t know about you but Christmas for me is one of the busiest times of year. I love having some many festive things to do but on top of assessment deadlines, student responsibilities and the general Christmasy commitments, it can sometimes be easy to get overwhelmed.

I saw a post on Pinterest recently that listed some ideas for looking after yourself during busy life periods so I thought I would have a go at writing my own list – and what better time to start than at Christmas! I’ve come up with a list of activities to count us down to the big day aimed to promote self care, being kind to others and getting into the festive spirit.

SELF CARE AND SAYING NO

Over the past few weeks I have started to realise that I really do need to take better care of myself. When I’m at uni I work myself into the ground with all the commitments I take on and I find myself constantly putting my physical and mental wellbeing at the bottom of my priority list. I guess this blog post is just about everything that’s happened to force me to take better care of myself and will act as a reminder to put myself first sometimes.
