There are always times in life where we feel just a little blah, and it can be a challenge to drag ourselves out from this rut. The problem is, though, that failing to drag ourselves out will only make things worse. We get lazy, complacent, demotivated, and this only compounds the blah feelings to make everything even more blah

So, rather than succumb to such feelings, you can start by refreshing your life. Everyone has something that they feel could be the difference for them, so here are some useful tips to refresh your life and get yourself back on track. 

 

Move Away 

It’s a bit of a cliche, but there is no more certain way to refresh yourself than by moving away, and with so much potential out there, you’ve got plenty of destinations to choose from. 

You can move across the country, or if you want to take it a step further, consider looking for a property in another country altogether. Depending on where you go, you might be able to buy Old Klang Road condo options, or you can build yourself a beach hut and enjoy the lapping waves. 

It’s not as easy as merely packing up and catching the next flight out, however, so moving away for a refresher should only be something you’re sure you want to do. 

 

Treat Yourself

If you’re not prepared to leave the comfort of your hometown, then there’s always the option to treat yourself. Sometimes, it’s not wholesale lifestyle changes that we need to get us back on track, but instead just showing ourselves a little self-love and gratitude. 

If there’s anything at all that you’ve had your eye on (that won’t drastically affect your finances, that is), then now’s the time more than ever to treat yourself. Material things shouldn’t be the be-all and end-all of happiness, but they can certainly help in certain situations. 

 

Chase a Dream

Everyone has a dream, and if you think the reason for your rut is that you feel like you’re spinning your wheels at work or in life, it’s time for you to chase your dream and see what happens. 

We all have passions that we use to unwind, whether it’s painting, writing, or creating eccentric crochet miniatures of our friends and family. You may have even had dreams of making money from such passions and hobbies. Perhaps now is the time for you to see whether you can make money from them/

Start an online store, send your work out to the right people and see what happens. Even if you don’t get anything back, you’ve at least taken that first leap, and that’s a lot more than others ever do. 

 

Clear Out Your Junk

As the years go by, you accumulate clothes, shoes, books, and impulse buys that you cannot even remember purchasing. While some of these items will become something you cherish forever, most of it will end up becoming junk. 

If you’re looking for a surefire way to refresh your life without doing much at all and also help out people in need, then clearing out your junk is the way to do this. Going through your wardrobes and closets and picking out things you will never use again is an excellent adventure in catharsis. It helps lift your mild hoarding issues from your shoulders and allows you to enjoy a tidier and more organised house. 

 

Hit the Gym

If you’re in a rut, hit the gym. That’s what everyone says, right? Much like starting anew elsewhere. Exercise to get over your hump is a cliche, but it’s a cliche for a reason. Working out, whether that’s lifting weights, yoga, or going for a run can help bring some routine to your life. It gives you something to do, even if it’s only for half an hour, and it gets you into shape in the meantime. 

Rather than sit on the sofa watching TV or scrolling absently through your phone, using exercise as a way to get back on track will come with more benefits than you might expect. You will feel healthier and more energised, meaning you will likely be more motivated to explore other possible options to refresh your life. 

 

Refreshed

It’s not natural to stagnate in life, and you should always be looking for ways to evolve and refresh yourself. For some people, this means starting a new life on the other side of the world, but, of course, this isn’t for everybody. Because of this, it doesn’t matter how you refresh your life, as long as you do it and do it for you.

How are you giving yourself a refresher to get back on track?

I have been using some new products this month. They have definitely kept me busy in my free time at home. I love trying new products and blogging about them, so you know products to go for and those to avoid. Here are some of the amazing products I have tried/experienced this month of March.

Gadget of the month – Edifier True Wireless Earbuds £44.99

This Edifier True Wireless Earbuds is one little gadget I have been playing round with this month. I love music a lot, and you can easy catch me going for a walk listening to some of my favourite tracks on Spotify. This Edifier True Wireless Earbuds would be used a lot. I love the fact that it is wireless and compact. The Earbuds being cord free means I get to walk around even easier with my music on the go.

Here are some of the amazing features of this Edifier True Wireless Earbuds

  • They have a IPX5 rating which means they are splash and sweatproof
  • The earbuds are compact and ergonomically fit into the ear cavity for a secure, comfortable user experience. 
  • The earbuds have up to 8 hours of playback time on a single charge but a total of 32 hours with the charging case so plenty of charge for even those marathon running ladies

Skincare Product of the Month – Olverum Bath Oil 125ml £35

I am a huge fan of the Olverum brand. I have used this Olverum Bath Oil for years now and I really like the product. It is great on my skin and I love the fact that it is made with natural essential oils. This bath oil soothes my aches and pains, and leaves me feeling very relaxed. With all the uncertainty and drama going on, soaking yourself in the bath with Olverum Bath Oil will do wonders for your mental health.

Book of the month – Celestial Prophesy

I have been reading the Celestial Prophesy book series this month and it has really validated many things I knew already. It is a very interesting book. Someone recommended it to me and the book series has kept me very busy in the last few weeks. The books are available on Amazon. I read them on my Amazon Kindle but the paper books are available as well and you can shop them via the links below.

 

What do you think of these products? Have you read any of the books in the Celestial Prophecy series?

Online Resources for Kids

We have been keeping busy homeschooling this week and it has gone pretty well. I must confess, I was really worried at first. It all looked a little much to study, work and homeschool at the same time. Plus doing anything outdoors is really not possible anymore. All that got me worried, but we got into it all as soon as the week started and it has been amazing. Having a routine similar to what the kids have in school works. Thanks to the hardworking teachers and amazing online resources, we got all the materials we need to smash it!

Here are some of the amazing online resources for kids we are using this week –

Ruth Miskin Training

This YouTube channel is filled up lots of videos to help children learn their phonics. It is really helpful. The twins watch a video on the channel everyday and they are carrying on their learning thanks to the amazing team behind this channel. Ruth Miskin Training also has a Facebook page and the videos are posted on their as well, so it is worth having a look if you children are in KS1. There are new Youtube Videos posted everyday for different levels.

Oliver Jeffers

Oliver Jeffers is reading stories everyday on his website and the kiddies love listening to him read a book. It is a great way to mix up the learning from home. I read to my twins everyday and they read to me as well, but having somewhere read a book is a great way to broaden their horizon. You can have a look at his website to listen to his readings.

 

Kidz Bop Kids

If your children love dancing, they would Kids Bob Kids! It is a fun Youtube Channel filled up with catchy tunes and lots of moves. My twins enjoy dancing along and sometimes I find myself dancing too! It is a fun way to get the kids moving.

Oxford Owl

Another great website for children is the Oxford Owl. It filled with expert advice, tips and activities to help your child’s reading. There are lots of ebooks available on the website. We have read two books already on Oxford Owl. The Duchess read Ballet and the Duke read Code for Dragon Training. We are reading Everyone Got Wet next and we can’t wait. Oxford Owl is a website worth subscribing to. It will definitely keep the little ones busy.

What do you think of these online resources for kids? How are you finding homeschooling?
