Sunday’s daily walk – finally wearing jeans- not leggings and with clean hair too

Sunday's daily walk - finally wearing jeans- not leggings and with clean hair too.  .
One day each week wearing normal clothes seems to help mental wellness and even brings a tiny bit of the old normal back again into your life - even briefly.

#tbt How strange it seems now that being in the middle of a crowd in a field at an IoW music festival was the normal

How strange it seems now that being in the middle of a crowd in a field at an IoW music festival was the normal.
.
Our new normal changes daily.
.
We have to be positive and live in the moment - not looking further ahead than tomorrow, creating our new normal with at least one planned activity a day to look forward to - apart from your one daily walk/exercise outdoors.
.
You could make time to:
Phone or video chat to someone living on their own.
Make a cake - however bad. 
Try an online fitness class.
Have a dance in the kitchen 
Get dressed 
or just do a meditation.
It gives a purpose and structure to the day.and helps your mental wellness.
Stay safe and well

I always post an in-salon selfie when my hair is looking its post-haircut best.  However this time the pic ended up accidentally being a video   as @andysmith_stylist hijacked the phone.
Lucy the westie x bichon wanted to be included. .
A great haircut makes you feel good and can renew self-confidence, self-esteem and positivity.

Never give up

Never give up.
It's never too late.
You're never too old.
.
Ice skating at the Natural History Ice Rink.
.
Just because you may be age fifty plus, sixty plus or even seventy plus -why not? What's your excuse? 
Whatever challenges you may be privately facing - get out there and try something new.
.
It's good for your mental health, your fitness and your wellbeing too.
.
You may just surprise yourself  have fun

Thrilled No more publicly visible likes on Instagram now

Thrilled  
No more publicly visible likes on Instagram now.
Finally a move towards helping mental health and comparison anxiety especially for teens.
.
Be yourself
Don't compare 
Don't base your self-worth on others' online perceptions of you.

Wenesday was National kindness day

Wenesday was National kindness day.

Do you know what's really going on in people's lives?  Your friends? Your family? Your neighbours? Those you follow on social media? 
Would you like to know if your friends or family are ok?
Do you ask? 
Are you interested? .
Is what you see posted on Instagram the reality? Or is it an edited or filtered version of their reality? 
The version they prefer you to see and maybe you choose to believe.
.
Do you believe everything you see? 
What is real and what is not? 
Do you compare? 
Does it give you comparison anxiety? 
Do you think you are not as successful, pretty, slim, rich, fit, popular as those you follow? .
Remember, nothing is ever as it seems.
Just as in @hotpatooties new book that I'm currently reading.  The story is so true. .
Every single one of us has stuff going on in our lives that we may or may not want to discuss. 
But it's always nice to be asked.
You can always say thank you and everything is ok. Or no it's not. And know someone is always there to listen to you.
.
So reach out.
Be kind and understanding.
And never judge a book by its cover. 
You may be surprised at what lies inside. .
Btw- the lovely smiley photo is of myself and my son and daughter.
