It gets to this time of the year and it's dark by 4 pm here in England and all I want to do is snuggle in bed with a cup of tea, a good book or a geeky documentary. I have been feeling the need to be a bit of a recluse for a bit I think it's needed when you're having a hard time. I don't personally feel comfortable always on the go, having a busy schedule makes me feel really disjointed in myself. It's nice to be able to spend a few evenings a week doing stuff that makes me happy in the quiet surroundings of my room.
The best way I give myself a bit of a break after a stressful day is reading a good book, people would of seen if you follow me on Instagram I finally bought myself Kieth Richards Autobiography "life" I struggled to get into it but now I really love the way it's written and you can really hear Keith's voice in it which is filled with humor and you can't have the perfect hibernation experience without a big thick fluffy jumper or woolly socks both from H&M.
I find that my anxieties are worst when I feel really disconnected from the place I lay my head, if my heads like this I struggle to function with my work and social life so for me the time spent on my own is really what keeps me going. I suppose it also doesn't help that I am currently a little heart broken. I think looking after ourselves is so vital and often mistaken for being selfish or self indulgent. I find people view the word "Self" in a negative light but speaking as a creative and a human just giving yourself a little time alone, to recover from struggles is exactly what the heart and brain needs. So get those woolly socks on, put a good film on and have some time to yourself.
