5 tips for happiness | ATypicalLife

Hey guys! So I’m not normally this inspirational but I’ve been thinking how recently I’ve been feeling little bits of happiness every now and then and how my overall wellbeing has been pretty positive recently so I wanted to share what I’ve been doing differently, they’re not going to change your mood drastically so please don’t think that these will, they just help to uplift my mood, and I hope they will for you too.

  1. So firstly, something quite small which I do everyday is listen to music. I absolutely love to listen to music every morning before school, it just puts me in a good mood for the day and I know it sounds absolutely mental but I can genuinely realise a difference if I don’t listen to music in the morning. I absolutely love the feel good Friday but I don’t know quite a lot of the songs and I love to sing along so I have made my own feel good playlist which I can link below for you if would like
  2. Finding a hobby, so obviously I have blogging, but one of my other hobbies is also dance. There’s Something about a hobby that just makes you happy when you go to do it, as long as you enjoy it, I think it’s the feeling of pride when you achieve something within that hobby. Such as reaching a certain amount of subscribers, like when I reached 350. Also, a hobby stops you from being bored at home and procrastinating, which can really drag your mood down 
  3. Eating healthy, yes I know I sound like your mum. I’m also probably the worst person to tell you this but just making a few adaptations can really enhance your mood. Just eating some fruit a day and drinking lots of water (this is very hypocritical of me) can make a difference 
  4. Tidy room, tidy mind, tidy life. I’m 90% sure that is not the saying but you get the gist. If you saw my bedroom right now you would literally not trust anything I was saying. But I can prove this as at the minute my rooms a mess, and my life’s a mess. Seriously though if your surroundings are clean and tidy it will improve your wellbeing massively.
  5. Be organised! Okay so this is the massive one. It’s quite vague so I mainly apply this to my school work, i like to complete all my homework and coursework as soon as possible so they’re then done and I don’t have to worry about it. However this can apply to out of school life. On a weekend I always make myself a to do list on what I want to do that weekend, so for example this weekend I will focus on cleaning my room and writing up lots of blog posts as I finish my exams this week.
  6. Okay I know this said 5 tips but I’ve got 6😂 okay so my last tip is just treating yourself now and then. This can be shopping now and then like buying a lush bath bomb or some stationary. Another favourite is baking and making yourself some cookies or buns etc on a weekend to unwind and munch on while watching a film or YouTube.

Okay so they are my main tips! I hope you enjoyed and I hope they help in someway! Also it’s really good to be back after my months off. I have a slight favour in wondering if we maybe can get 400 followers for my birthday? Ooh cheeky. Anyway guys, I’m off to go watch love island, byeee!!

What I got for Christmas (friends) |ATypicalLife

Hey guys! So this is the last post of 5 days of a typical Christmas. Before I got into this post I just wanted to talk to you a little bit. In November, and early December, I was falling out of love with blogging, I thought it was a chore, it was a burden to write posts for you guys and to be honest, I didn’t enjoy doing it, but I did it because I felt I had too.However,i started seeing some Christmassy posts and decided to write a couple for you, and honestly, I’ve fallen back in love with writing and blogging,i never want to stop doing it, this is what I want to do. Before, for me, I counted on numbers a lot and of course it’s really great to have a lot of followers but it isn’t an essential and while writing these posts for you, I haven’t checked my stats once and it’s made me extremely happy, so thank you for all the support I get, even if there isn’t loads of you, I love you all very much and hope you have the best Christmas ever. However, I didn’t want to leave you on that note for Christmas and thought I’d give you a full post to read. So I thought, what’s better than a post that should be after Christmas but is before? plus I stole the idea from BeautyBlogger: What I got for Christmas-friend edition

Reindeer Cookies Recipe| ATypicalLife

Hey guys! So I’m back for you today with a Christmas recipe! So I love baking and Christmas so putting them together is just my idea of heaven.I find baking so relaxing and just having something so creative and especially edible at the end of it just makes it all the more special.However,at Christmas it’s very hectic and I don’t have time to do loads of baking but I still want to make something.So when I was reading Tanya Burr’s “Tanya Bakes” and I saw this recipe I knew I had to share it with you,it’s so easy and quick :Reindeer Cookies.This takes about 30 minutes (if that) to prepare and 10 minutes to bake.However you can get already prepared biscuits and just skip to the decorating stage if you’re in a real rush
