TIME OUT IN THE COUNTRYSIDE
Taking time out. Now that
is something that I really need
to do, but am truly awful at/don’t even really know how
to. As a full time blogger, blogging – and more recently, Youtube
– is quite literally my life. And that’s absolutely fine, in fact, it’s more

I would love to know your tips for taking time out? What do you do to get away from social media and daily stresses? I would love to hear your thoughts.
As always, thanks so much for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post!
