A good night’s sleep is incredibly important for health.

Sleep is such a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life. Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health and physical health. Unfortunately, it can be hard to get to sleep to have a good nights, recently I have really been struggling with my sleep.

My sleeping pattern is all over the place. Sometimes I can climb into bed and drift off within seconds but other evenings, my brain just won’t switch off! I can then be awake for a further two even three hours. I am one of those people that will be grouchy and horrible in the morning so I need that important sleep!

Today, I’m sharing with you my steps to follow to help
fall asleep quickly and effortlessly.

Monthly Goals // July 2018

We’re already halfway through the year, which means it’s less than six months until Christmas! Can you believe it? I love writing these Monthly Goals as it helps me to be on target for my Personal and Blogging Goals. I feel without them I would forget and go off track, there’s nothing worse than getting to the end of the year and not achieving the Goals you set out at the beginning.

Today I will be reflecting on the Goals I set myself for June and creating some new ones for July. June has definitely been a great month and things have been just a little busy with a couple of car shows and visiting Plymouth. I swear I have not stopped and it’s gone so quick to think it’s now July. You can learn all about what I’ve been loving throughout June here.

Before I set myself some new Goals for July, let’s reflect on my June Goals!

Monthly Favourites // June 2018

Where on earth did June go!? When the time comes to write my Monthly Favourites, it always feels like yesterday that I was writing the previous month. June has always been a great month, it’s that time of year when your feet don’t seem to touch the floor there always seems to be something going on. Looking back, every weekend I have been out and about, which is a great problem to have, especially after so long of not being able to do anything.

I’m really excited to share my Favourites with you but with the power of social media, I’m sure you’ve already seen most of what I’m going to share with you.

Keeping Organised as a Blogger

One very important life skill is knowing how to keep yourself organised, if you lack organisation, you’ll easily become overwhelmed and your work could start suffering. This skill is one of the most important things to blogging, whether you’re a new or aspiring blogger, keeping yourself organised can help you to keep track of everything. According to a lot of people that know me, I’m very organised!

I’m always being told I’m an organised person and they would kill to be organised themselves, I also get asked how I do it. I have always done this and found the correct ways to allow myself to be organised, I truly think without being organised I would be lost and wouldn’t know where to start and probably would forget things.

Since January, I have been at least four posts ahead of schedule, meaning over the weekend – when I have free time and I’m not working – I don’t have to blog because the posts have been written, photos taken and everything is scheduled! I love doing this as at the moment, my weekends are just a little busy, now this means I can have fun and don’t have to worry about An Ocean Glimmer.

Today is a good day for those who love a photo of a flower, a close up of a bee landing on the entrance to its hive or even marvelling at the grace of a gazelle leaping through the Savannah.
