Why talking about our problems help so much

Headset on, get a glass of wine and be ready for gossip!

This is how I prepare myself for a long phone conversation with my friends during a pandemic when socializing is not acceptable. Or with a friend who lives a hundred miles away, and unfortunately, I have a lot of them far from me.

I love sharing exciting news, happy moments, or even sad feelings or troubles with my besties and of course, I love to hear what is going on with them as well!

Have you ever felt relieved after a chat with your friends? Have you ever found a solution after talking to someone about your problem, even the other didn`t give you any answers?

Talking about your feelings definitely has their benefits. Sometimes you just need someone to listen and other times you feel better after complaining to others. You might don’t even need advice, talking through problems give you a solution as well. Once you have processed your difficulties and get it out of your mind, it helps to let it go or come up with a “how-to-deal-with-it” plan. It reduces stress and helps you to ease your heavy thoughts. That`s why talking is important and I love having great friends to practice it. 

How can you get out of your comfort zone?

How to get out of your comfort zone

Same flat, same job, same friends, same supermarket to go. How convenient is it?! It definitely is.

I used to be terrified of new situations, I was not comfortable to extend my friend’s circle or just speak in front of a group. I am still not a fan of being in the center of anything, but I am confident enough to be the person who steps up when there is a need. Continue reading

Is it good to have high standards?

Is it good to have high standards

I love having high standards because it pushes me to keep going, do it better and don’t give up. And even my pride doesn’t let me accept low standards of performance.

I hate having high standards because I always want everything to be perfect and I feel less when something is not going as great as I expected.

I also hate having high standards because others clumsiness or laziness bothers me or even make me angry. Somehow, I just don’t understand why other people don’t want to do their best. Why they don’t want to make the most out of themselves? Continue reading

Time of self-reflection

self-reflection

They say until situations are happening again and again, you still need to learn something from it. The tricky part is that you don’t know what it could be!

It can be a colleague who you have a fight with all times but then changing your job, you find yourself in the same shoes. So, what you need to learn? It could be more empathy towards different personalities or more understanding of other beliefs and working style. Continue reading

Call it home

call it home

They say it doesn’t matter where you live as long as your heart in it and I have to agree to it!

I had lived in many different places in the past in Hungary and in London as well but I always tried to make the most out of it. It doesn’t matter if it was a small or bigger room, living with many people, but my own space, my room was my castle! I always find a way to decorate within a low budget, I don’t go crazy spending a fortune on it, but rather rely on my creative self and using what sources or material I have. And of course, there are plenty of DIY pages and videos on the web so getting ideas shouldn’t be a problem. Continue reading

Would your 5 years younger self be proud?

Would your 5 years younger self be proud

 

Yes… no… maybe… I don’t know…

There are so many different answers we can get. I think it all depends on what matters? How we measure success or happiness? How we measure proudness? What do you want to achieve to be proud of yourself? List things to own? Milestones you have reached that you set for yourself by the age of 25? 30? 40…? Do you consider happiness as something to be proud of? Continue reading

How easily do you change your mind?

change your mindset

I think it depends on what is on the table. Sometimes, I feel jumping between options but when I am thinking about my habits it can be hard to be consistent with a new perspective.

I have read a book about taking pictures for Instagram and other social media sites. It was a lovely Xmas present and finally, I had time to finish it. The book is about change your general perspective and always tries to explore different shapes, colours or subjects when taking photos. It can reflect on our lives as well, I guess it doesn’t harm anyone to change our view from time to time. Continue reading
