Do Holidays Ruin Reality?

Monday 15 January 2018

As of recently, I've been feeling so demotivated. I find that after every holiday it takes me a few weeks to get back into the swing of things and I genuinely don't know why. The addition of Christmas, New Year and the cold weather sure didn't help this time round and it's just now that I find I am back feeling motivated and eager to go again. 15 days into the new year but who's counting!

It wasn't until the other day I was at my boyfriends and we were talking when he randomly asked me to go and sit next to him for a cuddle. When I asked why he said you just looked really miserable over there. I was genuinely just scrolling on Instagram, but it made me snap out of whatever I was going through and want to do more.

Could it be that holidays are actually bad for me? Do holidays ruin reality for us? Before Dubai, I was waking up at 8am and sticking to a really tight schedule. But ever since coming back all I've been thinking about is planning the next trip, and rewatching gossip girl, because why not. It wasn't like I was going anywhere for the time being.

I never got a chance last summer to post these images from my short stop in Sete during my cruise in June so I thought it would be a great time to share them alongside a life update.

This year I have a lot more trips planned and I hope it doesn't take this long to snap right back into the groove of it all again. But it made me think a lot about myself and the downward spiral I could fall into if I continued on this path. Would this lead to anxiety? Could it lead to depression? 

Motivation is such an important part of everyday. And it comes in the form of such simple things like getting out of bed in the morning. Eating breakfast before noon and getting out of the house to run errands. It doesn't have to be something really big. 

This is something that I haven't really ever spoken on this blog about before, but this year I've decided to let you all in a lot more. I want my readers to know who I am and I want to know you all too. It's important for me to build an open discussion on this topic.

If you're going through something similar, or not, just remember that this too shall pass.
