A Slight Step Back


So I have some updates to share. If you want the short version, watch the video below. If you want to read the details, check out the post below that. 

I've been feeling a bit down lately. A bit unmotivated and lazy. I've done a whole lot of work to create more happiness, so it's frustrating when I start to feel blue. And thinking about how frustrating it is only makes it worse, of course.

Last summer I started working on a project. It's something I didn't know a whole lot about how to do, but something I really thought would help me, and therefore other people. It's a daily mindfulness tool and it's almost finished. 

It's something I was working on before work, after work, and on my days off. In addition I was working on YouTube and filming videos every week. I love having YouTube as a medium in which I can connect with people who are also interested in minimalism, health, happiness, compassion, and mindfulness. However, I realized that maybe I just need to take my own advice and do what I want to do, rather than what I think I should.

So, of course I want to create helpful videos, but not at the risk of becoming stressed out or putting up junk content for the sake of putting something up. Your subscription feeds deserve better!

My solution is now to film the things I'm excited about, and if that happens less often than once a week, I'm ok with that. 

I can spend more time trying to finish my mindfulness project and more time gaining more experiences to share on YouTube. 

In the mean time, do you have any questions for me or suggestions for what you'd like to see on the Like Minimal YouTube channel or on this blog? I'd really appreciate any feedback you could give. :) I'm ok with constructive criticism as well! 

I'll still be posting on all of my social media outlets, which can be found below. 

Thanks for reading, you're the best!

I'd love to hear about if you've ever felt like you needed to take a step back from something good for one reason or another!
