How I’m Coping with Anxiety During the Coronavirus Pandemic

I have written previously about my anxiety during the coronavirus outbreak but I wanted to put down some more thoughts, since the situation worsened. I was diagnosed with generalised anxiety disorder a few years ago, after the birth of my youngest child. Mental illness wasn’t new for me, as I had first suffered with depression aged 12, following the death of my beloved grandad, and had battled with it on...

How I Plan to Keep Myself Busy During Lockdown

I promise I won’t only write about lockdown and coronavirus and all that is going on in the world on every post I publish, but it does take up a lot of my mind currently. I have been trying to look for the silver lining in this awful situation we have all found ourselves in and, as I am lucky to be able to work from home and stay safe...

Why I Gave up Blogging Full Time

I quite often see blog posts floating around social media promising to answer the question of how you can take your blog full time, and I wrote a post like this myself a couple of years ago, nine months into monetising my blog. However, as much as it was nice to be in charge of my own income, and to be able to pick and choose my hours of work...

How I Am Beating the January Blues

I have made no secret of the fact that I suffer with my mental health. I was first diagnosed with depression when I was twelve, and my doctor confirmed I had generalised anxiety disorder following Benjamin’s birth three three years ago. I have been taking antidepressants for my anxiety and low mood for just over a year, and they definitely help even out my emotions and give me the boost...

Making Some Changes in 2020

I feel like all of my posts at the moment are about making changes, resolutions and goals, but that is what January is all about for me. A new year is the perfect excuse for a fresh start, to reassess and commit to making changes, if that is what you want to do. I used to make a huge song and dance about my resolutions, posting them across social media...

What’s Next for Even Angels Fall?

As the year comes to a close, I have been thinking about how I want to adapt and update Even Angels Fall as we go into 2020, not only a new year but a new decade. Since starting back in an office job alongside writing the blog, I have struggled a little to juggle everything. I have been writing 4 blog posts a week most weeks for the past year,...

Looking Back on the Last Decade

As the year comes to an end, it’s a time for refection, as well as looking to the year ahead. With the end of 2019 comes the beginning of a new decade, and with this in mind, I wanted to look back on the past ten years, as they have been pretty epic! It’s not all been good, there have been plenty of lows alongside the highs, but it has...

Our Christmas Traditions as a Family

•Features gifted items• For me, the beginning of December marks the start of our Christmas countdown. Our Christmas traditions, as a family, have grown and developed over the past few years, and now I feel like we do some set things every year, without fail. It’s nice to have these traditions, which the children get used to and look forward to, and I am excited to share them with my...
