My top 10 posts

Retable Sunday is 1 year old! I can't even believe that I am writing this. What started as a way to fill my days while looking for a job has now become a hobby that has taught me a lot and helped me seize incredible opportunities. I will dedicate the next post to my journey and what I have learned since I have started blogging. But until then, here is a list of my most-read and popular blogs. I hope you will enjoy (re-)reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them!

Feeling at a loss

Everyone feels at a loss every once in a while, especially when big events happen or big decisions have to be made. How are we supposed to stay sane and move towards our goals when everything that we normally do, everything that defines us, can’t be done? It’s in times like these that it is especially important for you to reflect on yourself and on your life, figure out what you really want and what you should probably stop spending your precious energy on. Here is a list of things that I have found helpful during this lockdown when I’m feeling lost or overwhelmed. I hope that these will help you too.

Coping with the lockdown

It's a weird and hard time for us all. Most of us have never gone through anything like this.

You might be nervous or even anxious about everything that's happening, and that is perfectly normal. But there are ways to stay sane while you are mostly stuck inside. So here are a few tips to help you make your time on lockdown a little easier.

Taking time for yourself

Sometimes life can be a lot. And when that happens, you can feel overwhelmed and any small thing that wouldn't normally be an issue seems like the biggest problem humanity has ever faced. When that happens, it's usually a sign that you need to take a break. So listen to your body and if you feel like you need a break, take some time for yourself. Whether it's just for an hour or an entire weekend, your body and mind will thank you. So here's a few tips I have when you need a break from things.

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!
