Half way through 2023

It's been a while in here.

Today is officially the second half of the year 2023.

Can't believe we're halfway through the year already?? Where did the time go?


July is a special month; it’s the start of the second half of the year, a chance to re-evaluate, restrategize and re-assess your plans and goals. A month that is labeled to stand for perfection.

However, this is not just a time to make additional plans and resolutions; it’s also a time to set the wheels in motion. Will the zeal and enthusiasm we started the year with carry us through to the end? 

I’m hoping so.

In as much as we are trying to accomplish our goals, we must not forget to let our hair down. The year 2020 upwards taught me that mental health is just as important as physical health if not more. We need to pay attention to it.

I know it's easier said than done. The economy is really hard and a lot of people are struggling to cope. The important thing is that as long as you're alive, there's always a tiny ray of hope somewhere. We need to learn how to form and build a support system around us.

My most-read article to date was about "Coping with Depression". The realization dawned on me that a lot of people were going through depression and needed help more than they’d like to admit, which is one of the reasons why I’ve resolved to be more intentional with my happiness. 

The world is too big and beautiful to not be happy... And my bucket list for touring the world is nowhere being fulfilled yet.

In as much as I talk about health being wealth, I’ve actually focused more on the external. This year, I intend to dwell more within; the kind of happiness that only comes from the inside; the happiness we all like to refer to as self-love.

Loving yourself is basically the most important gift you can give yourself and ultimately the people around you. This year and beyond; promise to love yourself, make good choices and go out and have fun after a long day at work. Trust me; it’s important for your mental health.

Connect more with people, bring the family closer, pause that diet and enjoy an ice cream (I know I do) and find time to rest. 

Enjoy a stress-free lifestyle and take it one step at a time. The bills will be sorted out sooner or later. Practice deep breathing and meditation. This helps me personally and don't forget to incorporate exercise no matter how small.

Go on a vacation if you can afford to or temporarily change your environment. Your life is super important, you need to make the most of it. And don’t forget to try new things like learning a new language or registering for a course. 

The year is still fairly new.

I’ll be leaving those few tips there. Until then, take care of yourself.
