HAPPY…happy…sad! How to turn that frown upside down…

I have picked up my phone to try and write an update so many times since my last post and found I’ve put my phone down, put my head on a pillow and closed my eyes. After a tricky couple of days at work I’ve been reflecting on mood and how it affects life.

I can go from a beaming smile to crying on someone’s shoulder in minutes these days and I can’t put my finger on why! I have tried to smile through it, eyes and teeth as a colleague says, but I sometimes just feel… sad!

Don’t get me wrong I don’t have a horrible life, far from it actually as I love my family and I am lucky to have trained in a rewarding career that gives me enough money to buy lots of beauty products 😄 However holding on to that when the pressures of life build is difficult at times.

I met a very good friend of mine on Tuesday (over a yummy Nandos 🍗) and we got chatting about meditation. After I got home (and opened the button on my jeans to release my belly stuffed with a well cooked food baby), I looked up some mediation techniques online and I guess I can see how it would help so although I am a little sceptical I have decided to give it a go. Make sure you keep checking in as alongside my beauty posts I’ll update on how meditation is going.

Before you go and read another blog don’t forget to leave your comments below 😊 Does anyone else feel down even when life is good? How do you cope through the stresses of life and get the best out of yourself? Has meditation worked for you?

    It’s funny, I was thinking about this tonight and how often I feel sad when life is good, but happy when some parts of life are hard. I don’t try to control it anymore, but let it runs its course most of the time and curl up with a book or movie and a cuppa, have a good cry and talk to a good friend. You’ve also reminded me about a blog post I read a while ago about meditation and I was meaning to give it a go as I thought Rich and I would both benefit from it.

      I think the welcome section on this website http://www.satimeditation.co.uk articulates it well for me. Clearing the mind and putting life into perspective can only be a good thing surely but I think it will be something that takes a lot of practise! My brain tends to run wild when I am left to think in my own so shutting it up will be a challenge! If that doesn’t work a bath and good book does help but only if paired with a nice glass of wine 😄
