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.

Lifesfinewhine Is Officially On Instagram!

So I finally decided to join Instagram! To check out my profile click here.

I decided to join because firstly I wanted to share my blog posts on it and secondly I thought it would be fun to share a bit more of my life and what I’m doing because as much as I try to share on my blog I can’t really share everything I do every 20 seconds because that would be weird and slightly annoying but totally normal on Instagram! 😂

I also wanted to sort of make more memories and I thought this would give me more incentive to go out more often and also try new things. It also help me kind of document my life and this way I have pictures/videos to look back at and remember stuff and smile!

Image result for instagram gif funny

I am also planning on sharing vegan and vegetarian recipes as well as some posts about makeup (like tips and my favourite brands) because I feel like Instagram would be better for that then my blog.

This is probably what my Insta is going to consist of… 😂

So if you want to get more of an insight into my life and just what it’s like for me day to day as well as vegan/vegetarian recipes or stuff about makeup make sure to follow me and feel free to DM me whenever!

Why I Haven’t Posted In A Bit!

So I have my finals starting this week and as you can imagine I’ve been absolutely stressed out with finishing all my assignments and revising!

Image result for gif overworked

And to be honest WordPress does get distracting so I’ve tried to stay away from it so I don’t get distracted and can concentrate on my studies

But I’ll start blogging and catching up with your blogs as soon as I’m done!

Life Updates!

I know I haven’t been blogging much or keeping up to date with everyone else’s blog

Image result for please dont hate me gif

However, I thought I would update you with everything that’s going on right now (admittedly not a lot…)

Image result for doing nothing gif

I have a bunch of assignments due soon (one tomorrow and 3 next week) and I have a midterm test next week for Sociology so I’ll mostly be revising this week which is very hard to do when it’s cold and snowing and all you want to do is curl up in bed and hibernate.

I also tried out some vegan Indian food from Touch Of India this week which was really good! Touch of India is one of the only two Indian restaurants in St. Catharines (at least that I know of!) and I thought it would be fun to try out their lunch specials!

It was really good and it pretty affordable too which is always a plus! I would definitely recommend it if you’re ever in St. Catharines!

I also skipped a seminar for the first time since I’ve been in university and felt kinda guilty about it but it wasn’t too important and I really did not want to go. It was super cold and snowy and I just could not deal with it.

So that’s pretty much what’s been going on with me!

Great News – The Banning of Ivory and Tusks from Being Imported Into the U.S. – Change.Org

Finally some good news!!

Opher's World

Ban elephant ivory and tusks from being imported into the U.S.

1M supporters


Petition update

Victory!

Kathleen Martin
Vancouver, WA

28 Jan 2018 — After months of limbo, the Trump Administration just officially announced the reversal of the ban lift of African elephant trophy imports into the United States! This victory was won by you, and the more than 1.1 million Change.org supporters who rallied together to protect the threatened African elephant.

I started this petition because we are not powerless to effect change in any administration. Because of your incredible support, this is true, and our voices were heard! Thank you to every individual who signed and shared. Together we reversed a policy that would have been disastrous for the majestic African elephant, and I am so hopeful we changed this future together.

Thanks so much!

I Have Escaped The Rocks!

It’s official I no longer have to learn about rocks (kinda technically)! I switched my Earth Science course and now I’m taking a different Earth Science course about cosmology!! I hope it’s like Cosmos (the show) because I loved that!

Image result for cosmos gif

I’m so excited for it!

Image result for excited gif

I’ll let you guys know how it goes!

Also I am still doing all my other subjects so nothing has changed there. And I am still really loving them!

Escaping Rocks

So I’m trying to escape another semester of  Earth Science but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to. I was thinking of taking Astronomy instead because I love literally everything to do with it! Also I am pretty sick and tired of learning about rocks in Earth Science… I’ll keep you guys updated and let you know how it goes!

Slightly More History Drama…

Firstly, if you’re new to my blog or haven’t been keeping up with my university posts please click here to catch up on what’s going on or you’ll have no idea what’s happening below!

So I was going over my results last week for my History Assignment 1 and what do I see in the comments section? My TA had written 5% off because I hadn’t handed in on time!

Image result for oh no they didnt gif

Well if you’ve been following my History class drama you’ll know that I didn’t hand it in on time because the damn History Department were trying to figure out how to add me to the seminars group online so I can upload the assignment and since it was 100% their fault they hadn’t added me to begin with I was told by my professor that they wouldn’t take off any marks for uploading it a day late!

Image result for this is your fault gif

So I immediately emailed my Professor who then told the TA marker to change it. He didn’t seem apologetic at all about the matter but my TA (who is super sweet and looks like nerdy Taylor Swift) wrote me an email immediately apologising since she didn’t know she I had been having trouble uploading the assignment which I thought was so sweet since she’s the only one who apologised (and very sweetly might I add!).

I really hope this is the last thing that goes wrong for me concerning History or anything in general!
