January Blues? Let’s Fix That.


January Blues? Let’s Fix That.


When a New Year comes in we always strive to be on good terms with ourself and within our life. If you’ve ever heard the saying how you come into the new year is how your year will be then you know why it’s important to do so. That’s why parents (like mine) always stress the idea of washing your clothes before the new year rings in so you won’t have dirty clothes all year long.

Whether your year came in good or quite the opposite, the beginning of a year can always be more stressful than the ending of one. You set new goals, have new desires, wishes, etc. and it can be overwhelming. It’s more overwhelming when you have a bad start because you may go into panic mode and think that’s how your whole year will be. Don’t panic just yet, it’s only January 6th and you have time to change your mindset and hopefully whatever it is that is taking place within your life. No matter how precisely you may plan, things will always have the ability to deter your course you set out to take because that’s just life. But when life happens you have to tell yourself and believe that things will get better. Your mindset will dictate how you tackle things and your faith in yourself, and in a higher power (if you believe) will guide you through. Here’s a short motivational video I compiled from my snapchat story:

If your year started off wrong I hope it gets better soon and your troubles become a thing of the past. Choose happiness always and be confident in your journey. Trust that everything will work out! As always uplift, empower, & inspire when you can.

Gods plan > my plan.

It’ll always be Gods plan over mine. I’ll accept whatever it is he thinks is best.

8 Ways to Beat The Blues: 

  1. Personal growth/spirituality. Your faith will be the biggest factor.
  2. Write down your goals in a place where they will be visible.
  3. Practice self-care and love (take some time to yourself each day).
  4. Self-reflect, this can involve doing yoga, meditating, listening to music, or simply writing down your thoughts.
  5. Allow yourself to acknowledge your problem areas. Be honest with yourself.
  6. Do more of what makes you happy.
  7. Remind yourself that you are here, you are living, and sometimes that is simply enough.
  8. Remember that just because you plan for the future doesn’t mean you stop living in the present. Be gentle on yourself and focus on being in the moment.

If given the chance, everyone has a story to tell. My name is Breyana I'jae, I am a 25 year old Temple University Psychology graduate, blogger, visionary, artist, creator, self published author, mama, jack of all trades, and lover of many things. 
When I first started this blog in 2013 my goal was to share My Story in hopes of inspiring someone else, I didn't know where it would go, how people would perceive it or what to really do, I just know I lived by the motto, Uplift, Empower, & Inspire.

While those goals still remain my blog will now be a place to promote self-love and self-care but that's not all. Come take a look to see what it offers.
