Why It's Ok To Have Off Days

We all have those down days where we lose motivation and just don't feel like ourselves whether it's school, college, job or general life issues we sometimes feel overwhelmed with it all.

We need a break to re charge and to feel better and motivated again it's not good to get stressed out over things that probably aren't worth getting stressed over but we all do it!.

So today on my blog I'm sharing why it's ok to have off days and how to pick yourself up again.

1.Don't beat yourself up if you haven't blogged in a few days /or done what's on your to do list it's good to take a break.

2.It's ok to have make up free days.

3.If you feel like staying in bed eating chocolate then do it!.

4.Take a break, go for a walk, listen to music or read a book.

5.Go for a long bubble bath, relax and unwind no phones etc.

6.Go to bed early to get a good nights sleep.

7.Have a pamper session.

8.Go for a walk, get fresh air and just take your time.

9.Listen to music and make a positive playlist.

10.If it helps talk to someone about things no matter how big or small.

Things Aren't All Bad


We all have down days and sometimes feel like giving up but sometimes we need to realise that things aren't actually all bad. I don't have many down days and when I do it's normally when I have my period. If I am having a down day when it's not mother nature I try to just focus on the positive things and not dwell on the negatives or the things I can't change.

1.I have a job I'm earning money and meeting new people which is good and who knows it might turn into a permeant job.

2.Chocolate coconut chips are life it was YouTuber/blogger Brogan Tate who got me into them!.

3.I joined Apple Music for 3 months (free) and I'm enjoying listening to old school songs.

4.I bought 2 cute little flamingo and pineapple lights from Primark.

5.Watching crime/prison documentries (I know some aren't nice but they're interesting) plus they're much better than the shows on at the moment!.

6.Going to Edinburgh last month and visiting the castle.

7.Gaining more confidence by having a job at B&M.

8.Buying Benefit make up for the first time!.

9.Currently addicted to chewits #soznotsoz

10.Cats.


I've finally got this written and published no idea why it took me so blooming long but here we are!.

I hope you like this post leave a comment.

10 Interview Tips

After getting in a muddle with my blog posts by thinking I'd written a post on interviews (turns out I hadn't) so here I am writing one! I hope this helps, and don't forget to leave comments I always reply.

I know how hard going to interviews is and so I thought I'd share my top tips.

1. Research the company this looks good and it also shows you're pretty interested in working there.

2. Get organised- get your outfit ready washed/ironed etc, notes, bus/train times if you don't drive leave in plenty of time to catch the bus/train, again if you drive leave in plenty of time.

3. Make notes and write down questions you want to ask the interviewer.

4. Eat breakfast/lunch depending on the time of your interview.

5. Be yourself.

6.Dont be late this doesn't look good at all.

7.Shower/bath in the morning.

8. Look presentable/smart.

9.Be polite, say hello/good morning/afternoon/thank them for inviting you.

10.Look at them in eye when you're talking.

Good luck and don't give up!.

Suffering With Travel Sickness

*DISCLAIMER PLEASE DON'T READ THIS IF YOU DON'T LIKE SICK*

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!


I wasn't going to share a post on this but I thought I would to see if anyone else relates to me, so like I said above please don't read this if you have a phobia of sick.

For as long as I can remember I've always suffered with travel sickness and so I don't really go away much because of it. I remember one time we were going away and we'd only gone up the road and I was sick!, I do take travel pills and I think they work more or less every time I take them but they do make your mouth dry. I'm ok if I take pills, I'm looking forwards and can see out the window

I start to feel funny if I'm in a car in the back going round country lanes and I cant look down either, I'm also terrible on a boat/ferry, coach and if I'm on a train backwards (like recently when I went to Edinburgh). I can't tell you if I get sick on a plane because I've never been on one but to be honest I don't think I'd like it. Sometimes I feel like I'm going to be sick and then I'm not or I am, I feel overheated and my head feels funny.

I don't like being sick its horrible and I feel embarrassed if I'm on public transport and people are watching/looking/making judgement (I bet they do) I wish I didn't get it so I could travel more but unfortunately I can't. I do take pills the night before if I'm going on a long trip or I take them when I wake up and hope they work.

If you relate to this then please leave a comment I always reply or tweet me @sarahbobbeal

Fragile X Research Trip To Edinburgh Scotland

As many people know I have Fragile X a learning disability you can read more here http://sarahbobbeal.blogspot.co.uk/2015/02/my-disability-fragile-x-syndrome.html and so when my mum got a letter through about volunteering for research in Edinburgh I thought it would be good to go to possibly help others. We booked our trains and a hotel to Scotland I also wanted to go away somewhere as I don't really go anywhere because I get travel sick :(

Day One Travelling Tuesday 6th June 2017
Me and my mum travelled from Braintree to London Liverpool Street, then we caught the tube to Euston to then get a train to Crewe and then onto Edinburgh. The journey going wasn't good at all because our train seats were backwards not good when you suffer from travel sickness :(. When we got to Crewe and got off the train in the fresh air I felt a bit better but it still wasn't nice.  We arrived at Edinburgh at about 4:30pm after a 7 hour journey. The hotel we stayed in was called Motel One and was right opposite the station and was a nice room especially the shower!. We went out to Pizza hut for dinner which was good.

Day Two Wednesday 7th June 2017
This day was the research day which was a taxi ride away at the Patrick wild centre, the scan was at a different hospital. I was really nervous and anxious about it but I thought I'd be ok after having a practise one and talking through what will happen. First I answered some questions and did some word/picture tasks some were easy and some were hard but it went okay. Then we went over to the other place for the scan I was given ear plugs, headphones and some padding around my had, then there was a thing that goes over the face and then some binoculars which shows pictures and I had to press a button. When I first went in the scanner I really panicked and had a button to press because I wanted to get out. I felt claustrophobic,my heart was racing and my hands were sweaty and I felt scared. I then got the option to have the scan without the thing over my face but I still felt panicky and anxious, I got upset a few times during this and afterwards when I'd decided I didn't want it done after all I felt like I'd let people down and just felt over whelmed. After we had been there we went onto visit the castle which was good and the weather was good! (the best day) the castle was interesting my favourite part was the prisons (I've watched a lot of docs!). We then went back to our hotel and then went out to look for somewhere for dinner and ended up in the filling station which was really nice!.


Day Three Thursday 8th June 2017
It rained for most of the day! oh bother anyway we went shopping, looked around a money museum and had a little bite to eat in patisserie Valerie. I bought 2 Cath Kidston bags (I'd never been in there before!) one was from the Disney 101 Dalmatian collection and the other was a blue bag with ducks on and I also got a purse/little bag these ones were in the sale. In the evening we went to Prezzo for dinner which was nice.

Day Four Friday 9th June 2017
Going home day :( our first train of the day was at 10am so we had to be up and ready, we had breakfast in this little cheap café around the corner it was ok but there was water on the floor and the delivery was everywhere so not really ideal but ah well. The train journey home was much better because we had face forwarding seats I listened to my music and just looked out the window so I didn't feel funny. I also napped a lot! well it was a 10 hour journey home. We got to Peterborough and had a few hours wait for the next train to Ipswich, then we got to Witham and then had to wait again for the train to Braintree and then we got a taxi back home at 9pm! such a long day!.

I had a good time despite the weather but that's Scotland for you! I would go back again and possibly take part in other Fragile X research should they do any.

Why You Shouldn't Be So Hard On Yourself



Today is Sunday the 21st May 2017 and I felt fine when I woke up etc,ate breakfast then I started watching deadly women on Netflix, but by lunchtime I started to feel down and just not myself. I had lunch and then decided to get outside and go for a walk, well it wasn't that long and after I got home I still felt meh. I'm not really sure why I feel like this I'm not due on, I have a job etc but I guess we all have these days even when things relativity fine.

So I'm writing this post to remind myself and you if you're having one of those days too that we shouldn't be so hard on yourselves because of one crummy day it's not the end of the world! there's a whole new week to start again. I think it's also partly boredom and then I start to eat when I'm probably not even hungry.

If you're having a bad day with finding a job or school work/uni work etc then take a break and have a pamper session, read a book or go for a walk. Take your mind of things and don't beat yourself up for taking a break things can become draining. I know what it's like looking for a job,its hard and I hated it but I took breaks from looking and then got back into it, and now I have a job.

Here are some positive quotes to help you feel like you again!
