What do you want for Christmas?

Merry Christmas Eve!

How did we go from “all I want for Christmas is my two front teeth” to “just give me money please”? I mean, it used to be easy for us. We didn’t need to ask. We always had Christmas clothes and shoes, there’d be rice and chicken, decorations, we’d also have music from Bonny M playing in the background but now… E be things.

These days, the excitement that comes with Christmas isn’t there anymore and I wonder if it’s only at my end. I’m grateful for the season and the reason for it but I still can’t help but feel that it’s because we’re slowly outgrowing Christmas. Can one outgrow Christmas? I can’t say for sure but it’s almost like the spark is no longer present. I mean, no decorations, no carols, no Christmas clothes and shoes. Who even said that you stop getting Christmas clothes and shoes when you’re done with secondary school? If you’re my age and you’re still getting Christmas presents, now would be a great time to share your secret.

I’m almost 22 and I still need Santa in my life. I’ve been a good girl this year (well, most of it) and I deserve gifts too. I cannot remember the last time I got gifts for Christmas and I do not think it’s fair at all. In fact, this is a state of emergency and I’m not even smiling. I have needs, dears, needs!!

Here’s my Christmas wishlist:

You see the most important wish don’t you?

Put your Christmas wishlist in the comment section. Your Santa may just find you between now and tomorrow.

However, do not forget that Jesus is the reason for the season. I hope you have a really splendid holiday!

Love,

‘Ruona ❤️

3 Quick ways to De-stress.

This year has been a lot for everyone and there is no denying it. Except you’re living under a rock, you’d have heard someone say that he or she is tired, mentally exhausted, frustrated, drained, or the person just needs to relax and be taken care of. You may have even been a champion of these complaints yourself and I can’t blame you because like I said, this year has been a lot.

Mercy from Big Brother Naija season 4, yeah?

Personally, I can’t even describe this year in one word. That’s to tell you how trying it has been because who would have thought??! Nobody bargained for this at all. I mean 2020 has affected us in one way or another but let’s try to be selfish and focus on ourselves for a bit. How do we calm down and take care of ourselves physically, emotionally and mentally?

In 3 Quick ways to de-stress, I’ll be highlighting 3 major ways to reduce and eventually banish stress. They include:

  • Take a break: If you need a break from work, social media or whatever may be stressing you or keeping you occupied, then take that break. You may not think you need it but taking some time out to clear your head and just breathe can help you relieve stress. You’re probably stressed because you’re thinking a lot, worrying too much or doing too much. You should take a moment to have a nap, unplug from social media or even meditate. Personally, taking breaks from social media helps me to clear my head and you’d be surprised at how taking breaks from your regular activities can go a long way.
  • Do stuff that make you happy: What are those things you enjoy doing? Do you enjoy reading, writing, listening to music, dancing or watching movies? Do those things. Get lost in those activities and make yourself happy. I know that some people complain that they don’t have the time because they’re busy. You make the time! You’re allowed to be selfish because problem no dey finish. Whatever hobbies you have that genuinely make you happy, keep doing them. I heard that eating is therapeutical. If chopping life makes you happy, go for it. Do it with moderation tho’. I cannot shout.
  • Change your environment if you can: Sometimes, all you need to relieve your stress is a change of environment. It doesn’t necessarily mean traveling from one place to another but I mean, if you can afford a trip to the Maldives, why not? Your environment could be your room. You could rearrange or change your furniture to bring new vibes. Trust me, a change in environment helps you de-stress. However, if you’re planning that trip to Santorini, please don’t forget to take me along. Let’s de-stress together.
In summary…

I don’t consider myself an expert in these things but from my experience, these three tips highlighted above yield positive results. In the end tho’, all you need to do is take one day at a time and please stop worrying too much because what will be will be.

Thank you for stopping by.

Love,

‘Ruona. ❤️
