Bold Introvert; Let’s Hear From Pooja

I had the amazing opportunity to work with an amazing site for introverts called Quietly Ambitious (I know, awesome name!) and I was able to answer a few questions about my life and what being an introvert is like for the Bold Introvert Series!

Quietly Ambitious

Name Pooja

Random question: You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why? I would probably be blue because it’s my favourite colour right now and it just makes me always feel super calm and light because it reminds me of a sea/ocean. I think the colour changes depending on how I’m feeling at the moment and I guess blue goes with what I’m feeling at the moment.

Are you a bold introvert? Have you always been one? I don’t know if I’m still at 100% with being a bold introvert but I’m definitely working to get there! I remember when I was younger and just talking to someone was a mission for me but now I’m a lot more social and find it easier to make friends. As a student I used to find it really difficult to speak in class but it’s gotten easier for…

How To Appreciate The Introverts In Your Life

Don’t force them to do stuff- most introverts can only do so much going out/socialising before they need to recharge again so don’t force them to do stuff. If they tell you they can’t or don’t want to they really mean it so don’t guilt them about not hanging out with you!

Listen- most introverts don’t talk to people a lot unless they know you pretty well- then they never shut up! When introverts try to talk to you, you should really listen because you probably mean a lot to them and what they’re telling you is probably much more then just small talk.

Don’t guilt them- introverts tend to be very sensitive and if you guilt them about stuff it’s going to really mess with them. It’s wrong to guilt anyone into doing stuff but introverts tend to take it harder then others do.

Be there for them- sometimes introverts have a hard time expressing their feelings so even if they don’t talk to you about it but seem kind of down or something you should try to be there for them. Introverts try to act like they’re okay but a lot of the time we’re just screaming in our heads.

Bye Bye England!

If your keeping up with the World Cup you probably know yesterdays game was a shocking one. It was Croatia Vs England and Croatia won 2-1.

I’m not going to lie I kind of didn’t think Croatia would win but the truth is the World Cup this year has been so unpredictable. I thought that the finals would be France Vs England but I guess I was wrong. I kind of feel bad for the English team because I think they tried really hard but it seemed like luck wasn’t in their favour.

I think they were both really great teams and I’m looking forward to watching the finals. What do you guys think is going to happen in the finals? Who are you rooting for and who do you think is most likely to win? Let me know in the comments below!

GIRL POWER🙌🙌🏾

PASSION&DIARIES

Smart girls don’t need tricks and lies to get what they want. Matter of fact, we represent hard work, strength and charity. We have been through the storm and survived. We don’t use our beauty and charms to manipulate people into getting what we want because we can get it anyway!

Being a girl of substance is as much acknowledging your power as it is being humble about it. Believe it or not a nation is made or broken by its women, we can hold up or tear a house, make love or make war.

You must recognize that power isn’t about winning, or about cameras flashing but its about believing in yourself, creating a sisterhood, asking for what you want straight up, showing up and never giving up.

Here are some few tricks to live by.

  • check your emotions
  • remain true to your dreams
  • cut and let go when…

How To Deal With Anxiety When Moving

Whether it’s moving out of your parents house or moving to a different continent moving is always super terrifying. Some months ago I made the huge decision of moving from Kenya to Canada for university and as someone with anxiety it was pretty stressful and anxiety inducing. Here are some tips that helped me deal with my anxiety during the move.

Stay focused- Sometimes anxiety can really get the best of you and a lot of times I ended up thinking “is this really what I want?”, “is this worth it?”, but you have to remember your goal. You have to remember everything you are going to be able to gain if you go through with it. Really think about it and don’t let anxiety cloud your thinking. If you want, you can write down all the reasons you want to/should move so that whenever you’re feeling anxious you can read it and remember why you’re doing this and why it’s worth it!

Yoga and meditation- I know I talk about this one a lot but the truth is yoga and meditation can really be life savers for a lot of people with anxiety. It will help you stay calm both in your everyday life and during stressful times such as moving. It helps focus your mind and teaches you to control your thoughts.

Take some time off- Take some time to relax and watch a movie or something. Your life doesn’t need to revolve around the move although it’s understandable that a major part of it will. Sometimes you just need to shut off your brain and do nothing which is where reality TV comes in… seriously it’s a great distraction!

Hobbies- Remember to have some hobbies like reading, writing, watch TV in your sweat pants… It helps to do a bunch of other stuff too because when your mind is idle it tends to over-think things and that’s often when the anxiety takes over.

Talk to a professional- If you’re feeling really anxious and nothing seems to be working please do talk to a professional about your situation. Just talking about what you’re going through really helps sometimes and there is nothing wrong with seeking help.

6 Ways To Look After Your Mental Health When You’re Physically Sick

Recently I was really sick and I realised it affected my mental health more than it should have. When I thought about it I noticed that my physical health plays a big role in my mental health and when I’m feeling sick physically my mental health also seems to deteriorate. It’s like your brain knows your defences are down and it attacks. Anyway, these are some of the things that help me out with that and I hope they help you too!

  1. Talk to someone- talk to your family members, friends or even a professional if you feel as though your physical illness is seriously effecting your mental health. Talk to someone and tell them how you feel. I can not emphasize enough how important it is to make sure as you recover physically you are feeling good with your mental health too.
  2. Meditation and yoga- if you can’t do a lot of stretchy yoga positions there are still some really easy ones that pretty much consist of lying down or sitting. If you still feel as though you can’t do these try doing some meditation. You don’t even have to move to meditate and it’ll make you feel tons better to just clear your head for a bit and relax.
  3. Check for side effects- A lot of medicines have horrible side effects including things like depression, anxiety and insomnia. If you already suffer from any of these they might make them a lot worse so make sure you know what you’re taking and that it doesn’t have these side effects. Or if you can’t change your meds try taking something along with them to counter the side effects.
  4. Talk to your doctor ahead of time- Talk to your doctor and let him know if you have any mental disorders that you fear may have gotten worse or will get worse because of your physical illness. Be open about it because that’s the only way they’ll know what’s going on with you. And even though it can be terrifying to open up about your mental illness/es it’s important to remember they’re professionals and it’s their job to treat you not judge you.
  5. Take extra care of yourself- Remember that you should be the most important person in your life. Take care of yourself- eat healthy, drink lots of fluids, get lots of rest and just do whatever it takes to make a speedy recovery. Once you feel better physically, you’ll feel better mentally too.
  6. Stay distracted- Read, sleep, play games, start working on your doctorate… whatever, just keep yourself distracted from negative thoughts. I’m usually not one to say distract yourself or bottle up your thoughts but sometimes it’s better than dealing with them when you’re already feeling down. You can deal with them when you get better.

If you feel like your mental health is still not improving please seek medical help as soon as you can.

Why I Wasn’t Around Last Week

So before last week I was on the right track and blogging regularly but on Saturday I started feeling slightly sick but I just ignored it and I was like it’ll probably go away. But by Sunday night it got really bad so I decided to go to the doctor on Monday and get it over with.

Image result for sick gif

Unfortunately, the doctor misdiagnosed my symptoms and gave me the wrong medicines which literally made me feel like I was dying. I have seriously never felt that bad in my life.

Image result for sick gif

So I went to a different doctor recommended by a friend and she at least diagnosed me correctly. However, even after asking her to give me mild medicines since I am sensitive to most medications and get allergic reactions she still gave me really strong medicines and the next day not only was I super sick but now my face and half my body had broken out in rashes.

They were super red and itchy and I had no idea what to do so I went to a third doctor and he told me they were an allergic reaction to the meds I was taking and that it was a really high dose of a very strong medicine. I was pretty pissed considering I had told her I wanted something super mild but I just let it go since she was just trying to do her job (not very well though).

Anyway now that I’m off all the meds, except the allergy ones, I feel much better and I think I’m going to be fine soon. Moral of the story: Don’t get sick in Kenya unless you know a really good doctor (and if you know a really good doctor in Nairobi let me know because I am not going through this again!)

Also I realized I forgot to mention what I had- it was swollen lymph nodes, a throat infection, fever and a runny nose.
