Having free time is great for some, but for others it might mean finding yourself in a cage at home, wanting to go out but feeling unable to.

Or maybe we’re just anxious about nothing at all, because, y’know, we are used to be. Either way, I encourage you to do something about it, otherwise you’ll spend your time feeling sorry about yourself or even worse, you could end up engaging in unhealthy habits just to get rid of that feeling.
As this year comes to an end, we all start to feel the pressure of reflecting on the goals we had in mind at the start of the year; only to find that we failed to accomplish most of them.

So there I was, at home sitting at the table with my laptop trying to give birth to ideas despite the headache, the fatigue and the dreadful feeling of hopelessness over my shoulders.
