Do You Find It Hard To Relax?

When you get some time off work, do you also find it hard to relax? I’ve had 5 weeks off this Christmas (which I am thankful for). I’m currently in between jobs at the moment and I’m finding it very difficult to just chill and put my head back. Do you think it’s the little things we love doing, that make us feel “relaxed”?

Relaxed = Free from tension and anxiety

Zen stones balancing with candles and a Buddha figureI did take up an intensive 7 day job dancing for Helene Fischer (one of the biggest pop stars in Germany), for her Christmas show, going live on the 25th of December on Channel ZDF. The job wasn’t relaxing but it was a fun experience and I was challenged in a style of dancing I haven’t done in years. I’ve done a lot more cooking than I have been doing this year, which I funnily enough find relaxing, especially with some music in the background. Then I found I got anxiety from doing nothing all day, it’s mad! In that tiny mind of mine I wasn’t relaxed, my mind was so use to thinking a million things at once. The feeling of sitting around wasn’t enough for my head. I don’t think I’m the only one who loves to be proactive, maybe the idea of doing house chores without rushing about is also relaxing. This week I’ve still managed to somehow to get myself into a little routine as in; getting up to make breakfast then relaxing and watching some christmas movies, I would then write some ideas for my blog, then I would slowly get up and do some yoga and maybe a strengthening video after with some dancing stretches to keep supple for my next job, finally I get out and wander around. You get the idea!

1A29D984-9EAF-421C-B50A-5F2D5A84C8BEI’m currently in German this Christmas season. I’m spending quality time with my love, which I can’t moan about! Sometimes we don’t get time to see the people we love enough, so doing what ever we can in our spare time to see our loved ones is alway nice.  It’s actually a really nice feeling. Not everyone has enough holidays and free time, so its trying to find the right balance to get your mind into that relaxing state. Germany is sooooo chilled and beautiful, so I shouldn’t complain about having nothing to do, but I did live here for a year and a half, so I know my way about. I do feel at home in Germany and I do love my local coffee shops which get me out. It’s perfect for me to write in different environments as It gets my brain waving and thinking about other things. For me getting some oxygen and fresh air gives me that amazing feeling too, if I don’t get out for at least an hour a day I don’t feel content, I feel agitated. It’s such a weird feeling and maybe I’m not alone with this.

I find doing exercises in my spare time also relaxing and it burns enough energy for me to actually relax my body. I feel like I should of tried to meditate at least 3 times a week and channel my focuses on all the amazing stuff that has gone on over the past year and accept all the amazing things to come. I don’t really walk around in parks in the winter, maybe I should grab my partner and go for a walk this christmas, and just enjoy the local amazing German parks in the winter. I do love a walk in a park but mostly in the summer. I did it for a whole year when I was living in Germany. OMGOSH, I forget my daily commute and how beautiful nature was to pass by. I took that for granted in London, I defiantly didn’t have any amazing parks on my commute to work, I had the underground. Now talking about London, I do feel very relaxed here on my break in Germany and I’m so happy I found the time open up my personal blogging website, it was the best idea this Christmas break and I am thankful.

What are you thankful for today?


Samara’s Monki Haul Christmas Online Shop

I’ve been a huge fan of Monki for years, and this year I feel like I have abandoned the brand. So I had a little browse this week and got some early sale items.

E506F841-759D-43F5-805C-1CF6B97B8854I’ve always wanted these eyelet detail jeans, the material is so thick. This vintage colour can never go wrong, I can put any type of top or jumper on with it. I love the lace on the side, it’s so this season!

52C8AB36-80E3-4498-990E-D8CA804B1463

I’m Obessed with pink, I use to have this obsession with pink clothes and jumpers, so I’ve added a new one now. Again sticking to that vintage style, loose fit. Pure SASS.

5AFD0D5C-6FE0-4728-BE09-15B368E68AE9

Tapered silk, high waisted with a loose fit. WOW, all my items today seem to be in a vinatge style.I only seem to wear high-waisted, I can’t deal with low waist jeans/trousers, as it just doesn’t suit my body. It’s always good to know what clothes suit your shape.

9820E135-7064-4AFE-A4F1-92143FCF0B27

Shiny classic top to go with all my snazzy pants and jeans, I’m going to wear this top on Christmas Day I think. It’s so cozy and snug, stretchy material! Perfect, because I will be eating everything the next few days!


 I hope you loved my discussion today, and my clothes haul!! Thank you for reading.
