Before you look at the title think I’m about to educate you on how to break your neck and possibly kill yourself, this post is far from suicide 101. Grab yourself a cuppa, a chocolate digestive (or three) and prepare for some real life Gianni advice.


Life at the moment (as cliche as it sounds) has been an total rollercoaster. Like serious ups, downs and vertical drops… all sitting backwards. Emotions all over. Don’t get me wrong, the past couple of months have been amazing. I’ve traveled to the other side of the world (New York to be precise) with some of the most amazing people in my life, graduated with a grade I could have only dreamed of 3 years ago and witnessed Queen B Yoncé perform her Formation Tour… and that’s just the past 2 months.

However recently I’ve been stuck in this frame of mind and very negative place that I can’t seem to pin point the source. I’ve tried to discover the reason why I’m feeling like this but nothing seems to come to mind. Until I realised, this is just life. For someone to remain positive every day, 24/7, 365 days of the year, they are a pretty impressive human being… and I envy you. But it’s taken me a while to realise that actually, it’s okay to be down.

After accepting this, that having a rough patch is completely normal, it’s helped me gain sight of life and turn that cliche ‘life is a rollercoaster’ into another cliche. Recently, I’ve stepped off that rollercoaster and just walked through life at my own pace. I’ve started to set aside more time for myself, to do the things I want to do and in my own time. Spend more time on blogging and stuff I enjoy, future projects I’m planning and ultimately, a little TLC for me. I guess life over the past few months has just been so fast paced it really has gotten on top of me and finally I can now take a break and chill.

So how do I jump off this metaphorical rollercoaster you’re talking about?

Of course I’m making it sound oh so simple right now, which believe me… it ain’t. But sometimes it’s better to try and accept the burdens in your life. Whether that be family/relationship troubles, finances, careers or friendships… put them to onside for a second and concentrate on you. Take a walk in the park, sit beside the beach or even go for a drive with the windows down. Put your headphones in and play your favourite music, not loud… but quietly and breath. Get tucked up in bed with a film of your choice, with a cup of tea.

‘Me time’ is super valuable in anyones life and a lot of people forget to take a second for themselves. It allows you to seize the moment and put thing’s into perspective, stopping that constant rush probably 99% of the world have on a day to day basis.

I’ve totally rambled for this post but I guess some of the best content comes from the inside. Next time you’re feeling worried, stressed or simply down… take some me time and jump off that rollercoaster for a second. Even a simple walk and some fresh air can really make the difference.

Then things do get better.
