a story about a self-proclaimed “wellbeing enthusiast”
Who I Am?
Hi there! Welcome to my personal lifestyle blog Sailing In The Sun.
My name is Lexi, and I write about various topics such as psychology, mental health, self-care, wellbeing, my personal life, and more! I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety at nine years old, and throughout my life I’ve seen a lot of its different sides. With my mental health experience, I want to connect with other people going through similar situations. I know what it’s like going through mental health struggles and not having anyone else there to relate to. It can feel lonely. So I’m here to tell you you’re not alone. 🙂
Is Sailing In The Sun For You?
This blog is for people interested in advice on bettering their anxiety and mental health in general. If I could sum up Sailing In The Sun in one word it would be wellbeing. You can expect a supportive community who cheers you on while on your self-improvement journey of the mind, body, and soul, for striving to better yourself, and who want to see you do great, and be great. If you love writers like Louise Hay, Deepak Chopra, and Eckhart Tolle, you’ll feel right at home here.
Some Random Nuggets (to get to know me on a more personal level):
~I love yoga, meditation, gardening, reading, and writing (I love a good mix of fiction and non-fiction, especially classics like The Great Gatsby and Pride and Prejudice).
~I grew up on forty five acres in the country, so I have a huge appriciation for nature. If I could, I’d spend every waking hour in it.
~I’ve loved writing since forever (I wrote my first journal entry in 2004 at the age of 7, and I still write in a journal to this day). It’s my favourite form of communication as I can freely and easily communicate my thoughts and feelings – thoughts and feelings I may not so easily be able to communicate verbally. And they’re always accepted by the pages, never criticized nor judged.
~I’m family oriented and can’t wait to have one of my own one day.
Why The Name “Sailing In The Sun”
Essentially, for me, Sailing in the Sun didn’t just look like a chill name – it was a name I could feel. Imagining myself sailing on calm waters under the orange glow of the setting sun was, and still feels, revitalizing for me. It feels harmonious, tranquil, balancing, renewing, and enlightening. That’s why I picked the name for my blog, because it’s more then just a name – it ‘s a feeling, and exactly what I want my blog to represent.
Why I Decided to Start a Blog
I’ve always had a desire to start a blog for many reasons – I love writing, I love community, and I love connecting. But it was also because I want to share my story and bring you guys along with me on my journey. Just to put my story out there for everyone to see gives me peace of mind because it feels like it’s no longer bottled up insdie of me. With the long experience I’ve had with anxiety, I’ve learned so much, and I want to share that information with everyone who still struggles, in hopes of eliviating some of it.
