There are so many lovely posts that are written by bloggers that sometimes slip under the radar, not given as much appreciation as they deserve. With this post and hopefully future monthly blog posts to read editions I hope to help that, I hope to show some recognition to bloggers that are acing it at the moment. To start with here are four blog posts that I could recommend enough from this month:
In this post Beth briefly touches on what ‘SAD’ (Seasonal Affective Disorder) is and how it affects her, I found everything that she said relate-able from the start. I guess it’s because I also struggle with low moods in the Winter months, therefore just reading that someone else feels this way made me feel that little bit less alone, lame I know but I’m being truthful here. Beth then goes on to talk about ways she copes with ‘SAD’, I found it really interesting as some of the idea’s I’d never heard of before such as using a Lightbox (something I”m now looking into getting myself).
I saw Amy tweet about this post on Twitter and I was straight away drawn to it, I couldn’t of agreed more with everything said. One point Amy made which I believe is a great summary was ‘the question to ask is not am I bossing life but am I enjoying life?’, if you think about it what’s the point of trying to ‘boss’ everything if it’s making you unhappy, you can’t be winning then. It’s such a fascinating read as Amy has some real insightful opinions on the topic, worth a read!
Nicole’s blog is filled with lots of posts surrounding the topic of mental health, if that’s something you’re struggling with I’m sure she’ll have a post that’ll help you out.This specific post was a big help to me as I was trying to do exactly what’s stated in the title ‘make sense on the Anti-Depressants’ I was put on. The post is extremely informative, it answers many questions from ‘what are Anti-Depressants’ to ‘how to they work?”what are the withdrawal symptoms’ and many more. After getting to the end of this post I felt slightly more at ease in my mind about myself, basically Nicole is a babe and her blog is a little gem!
If you’re unaware this month, October, Lauren has been taking part in Blogtober, uploading a post everyday in October. I admire her so much for this as every post she’s uploaded includes high quality pictures and well thought out, written posts, she’s a great Idol to look up to for blogging! Anyway, In this post Lauren talks about how she juggles keeping up to date with her blog and a full time job; I gained a really useful tip from here, do some blogging in your lunch break. duh, sounds super simple but it’s an amount of time that I always seem to waste. It’s inspired me to write a post on how I keep up with my blog and working too.
If you have a few spare minutes you really should take a read of these posts, all these girls are killing it with blogging!
