Dating in your 20s

Dating is hard. Especially nowadays, people just don’t meet the same way they used to. I feel like 50 years ago, people met so easily, got married and stayed together for their whole lives. I might have watched too many movies. But anyway, you would think that the rise of social media and online dating apps would make it easier to meet people - however, it’s actually made it harder.

Getting help for mental health

Asking for help is not easy. It involves you having to understand and accept that you can’t do this alone. But guess what? No one can do it all by themselves. And although reaching out is scary and makes it real, it will benefit you so much. So don’t suffer in silence. This week I’m sharing a few things you can do to help you on your journey with mental health. This is based on my experience so please take everything with a grain of salt and get professional advice too!

Staying motivated

Happy February! Because it has been a couple of weeks since you have set your goals and intentions for 2020, I think it's time to check in with yourself and see how you're doing. It's not easy to stay motivated and to continue working towards your goals. It takes time and work to achieve anything. So in honour of us sticking to our goals this year, I've compiled a list of things to help you stay motivated and reach all your goals.

Looking for an internship

Finding an internship can be difficult. It’s often very competitive and not all companies readily accept interns. I had my first internship when I was 16. It was part of my school curriculum to do a 3-week internship. It is, unfortunately, the only one I’ve had since. As I’m sure you have too, I’ve applied to many companies since, but it was never successful. I have picked up a few things on that journey that I’d like to share with you, mostly things I learned from my mistakes. Whatever your situation is, whether you’re still in school or uni, internships are something many of us will have to go through at one point in our lives. So keep on reading to find out what to do when you're looking for an internship!

Eating healthier

Most of us try to develop healthier eating habits at the beginning of the year. Chances are you’ve spent Christmas overeating - and doing so for the weird time between Christmas and New Year where you forget what day it is or what your name even is. Trying to eat a more balanced diet is good, it’s healthier. But, as with most healthy things I find, it can be difficult to achieve.

Setting your goals for 2020

I am determined to set and achieve my goals this year. If you want to do the same, to become a better version of yourself, to achieve things, it’s important to keep working on that all year long. Let’s not be those people that sign up for something in January and give it up by the third week of the year. I’m going to share with you a few things that I am (planning on) doing differently this time in order to keep that motivation and actually achieve the goals I set for myself.
