Time for Yourself | Lifestyle


I often look at myself in the mirror and all I can see is a pair of tired eyes trying to stay open for a new day, or for a few more hours. A tired girl, heavy lids, messy hair and with a deep desire of going back to bed. Yes, that's me in most days, and after all that I need some time for myself. And you, you should do the same.

I think that in our busy lives we forget to look a bit after ourselves, to look at our reflection and see that we need a break. We need some time off, relax a bit, sleep a bit better, have a nice cup of tea and a good book. I don't know about you, but I do enjoy a good book and a cup of tea, just let myself go with the story. I mostly prefer books that give me a certain feeling and books that can make me relate with at least one of the characters. So right now I have my book at my right, a good cup of tea on the table and some nice thoughts for you.

Time is not much of a friend latley, and that for most of us. We work, we study, we're tired. How to disconnect? I have my methods and I want to share them with you, and also I want you to share your methods with me. I told you about how to distress and relax a while back, but now I want you to see things a bit different. I am not talking abot stress, about all the negative things that affect our lives, I am talking about the general state that we have after a long full week, when a 20 hour sleep sounds like the best thing in the world. Some prefer movies, I have no patience for that. Some enjoy music, and I do too, but particular songs or artists, my favourite one this end of the week (and of all times) is Ludivico Einaudi, pianist. I find myself so... I don't even know how to explain it. I just love the songs, and the piano is one of my favourite instruments, and he is pure genius. It's usually I giorni in the background and me with a cup of tea, and maybe a blog post, one of my ways to disconnect from work and college. He has a song for every mood that I might have, so he is always my first choice if I am going for piano that day.

Books are one of my favourite ways to disconnect from the whole world, and if I had to recommend some, I might just tell you what I've been reading recently: If I Stay and Where She Went by Gayle Forman, the second one is in progress. I love the books, the first one is awesome, written in a lovely way, and such a good read. The second one, well, I enjoy every little word, I can find myself in Adam quite a lot I must say. Another Author that I like is Nicholas Sparks, I read most of his books, refused to see the movie for some. Why? Because I created such a beautiful story in my mind and I had way higher expectations, so, no, no movie,

I actually do enjoy a bit of time on my own, a bit of time for me, some time to enjoy and to feel like I can recharge for the next round of full days and neverending hours, that still fly by so quickly.

So, what do you do to disconnect? What books do you read? What music do you like?

  1. Your pictures are so lovely! I've been hearing a lot of good things about the "If I Stay" book .. and I remember seeing it in stores about 4 years ago .. and going back and forth as to whether or not I should get it. Needless to say, I didn't get it. :(
    I love reading as well, or browsing instagram .. though I'm not sure if that's a good way to "disconnect" but it lets me in on other peoples lives and I love it :)
    By the way, if that is your journal .. I love it, it's so beautiful and seems like it would be so nice to hold! (is that weird to say?! I just LOVE the way nice diaries feel in my hands)

    1. First of all , thank you! And the book, well, I loved it, and the second one is lovely too, such a nice read.
      I am an instagram scroller myslel sometimes, and i guess it's a form of spending five minutes or so just to see what's going on around.
      I like journals a lot too, always loved them and I alays tend to buy them!

  2. I love this post , it's amazing that you shared some of your ways .. I just love to chuck on headphones, listen to some loud music and just zone out.


    1. I am so glad you did! Thank you!
      That is something that I do too, but it really depends on the mood.

  3. This is so great and a good reminder to "turn off" sometimes. I also love that pillow!!

  4. This is great! It's so important to remember to "turn off". I also really love that pillow!

  5. Vad ca avem gusturi asemanatoare la carti, ma bucur ca iti place seria If I stay. Eu, cand simt ca totul devine prea mult, revin la cartea mea preferata, Mare Tranquillitatis (sau The sea of Tranquility, ma rog). Desi descrierea de pe spatele cartii este putin stupida si pare ca este o carte super cliseica, nu este asa. De fiecare data descopar ceva atunci cand o citesc, acum mai am cateva pagini si inchei al 5-lea ciclu (I'm a freak, I know).
    Te invit la tag!: https://beautyandbargainsbyr.wordpress.com/2015/03/09/i-3-drugstore/

    1. Cartile mi se par superbe! Nu o stiu pe cea pe care ai enuntat-o, dar am sa o caut la un moment dat.
      Uuu, Tag, nice, I'm on it!
      Te pup!
