Little Ways To Make Yourself Feel Happier Right Now

First of all, SORRY about the cheesy title. If I read this, I'd probably do a huge eye roll too but hear me out first, okay? This year, one of the main things I wanted to do was focus on my happiness. I find it far too easy to get into a bad mood and not allow myself to escape it. I'll hide away in bed with sad music on, having a little cry, wallowing away in my own pointless, bad thoughts. And, you know what? That's okay. Sometimes I need this. I need to wallow, I need to cry and I need to just feel a little sorry for myself. But I also need to learn how to get myself out of this situation. To not waste an entire day wallowing but to, instead, do something that will switch my mood around. To not allow my mind to take over, basically. I've found a few ways recently that have helped with this and I just thought I'd share 'em on here with you guys!

Easy Ways To Make Extra Cash Online

Okay, so I've done a few posts like this before but I thought I'd do an updated 2017 version for any new readers and, also, for anyone who's just generally interested in making a bit of extra cash online! Someone on Twitter recently asked me to do a post with tips on how I sell things on eBay so I thought I'd just put a post together about making extra money online, in general, and also include some eBay pointers in there, too!

Some Books I Want To Read In 2017

I've set myself the challenge of 'reading more' for the past couple of years, now. Whilst I never go a year without at least reading 5/6 books, I never read enough. I love reading. I'm not someone who just wants to do it because I feel like I should - I genuinely really enjoy it. I miss studying English Literature and dissecting a single quote and thinking about all the different ways it could be interpreted, I miss looking for a hidden message or metaphor behind a seemingly simple sentence. I just really love getting stuck into a good book and I'm always reminded of this when I eventually pick up a book and end up finishing it in a few days flat because I get so hooked.

2017: The Year To Make Things Happen

So, I've already done a post about the things I want to do in 2017. From big things like saving for a house deposit and a trip to New York to little things that will just help to make the year a bit more enjoyable such as going out for brunch more often and reading more. I've seen so many posts floating around the blogosphere, at the moment, about 2017 being the year. Maybe it was because 2016 seemed to be such a collectively crappy year for everyone or maybe it's just us bloggers being a positive bunch at the start of a new year? Whatever it is - I like it. I'm not naive enough to think that a change in the date means a complete change in myself. But, hey, it's a good place to start, right?

33 Things I Want To Do In 2017

I'm not bothering setting myself any proper 'goals' for this year because, lets be honest, how many of us actually stick to them? There's the standard, cliche things I'd like to change; eat healthier, exercise more, save more... you get the jist. But if I set myself specific targets and amounts, I'll just feel guilty if I don't end up meeting them. Instead, I'd rather think about things I'd like to do in 2017. They're not all spectacular - mainly just little things that will all contribute to making 2017 a good one...
