When you don't know what to do

Sometimes when we feel stuck and lost, we just assume that every other person is doing better than us. That is not true. Most times when we don't know what to do, it simply means that we are overwhelmed.

First of all, what do you want to do? Because most times we don't have anything to do but we feel like we should be doing something. Therefore, make sure you stay away from social media; except you are watching comedy on YouTube, DO NOT check your social media!

My simple and short answer for if you don’t know what to do would just be not to do anything at all. You can only do something that needs to be done. If there is nothing to do, you can’t do anything about it.

Have you heard of the phrase, let go of what you can’t change? Then you should practice that, cause holding on to something you can’t do anything about will cause anxiety, depression and exhaustion. So why look for what is not there?

You have to be specific about what it is you want to do, that is the only way you can solve it. If it has to do with your career, personal goal or family… That is a different thing altogether. Cause now you know the problem, so you plan towards solving it.

And who said you have to deal with things alone? When things become too overwhelming, you should talk to someone. If you have no one to talk to then you can talk to a therapist. If you don't have money for a therapist you can go online, you can get free therapy online these days e.g better help.

And if you can’t do that, you can email me. Sometimes all we need is just someone to talk to, it mustn’t necessarily mean a professional. I am a good listener and one of the reasons I got this website, is to be able to share my experience with people and be a listening ear to whoever wants to talk.

If you really don’t know what to do, like you are stuck in your bed and literally can not think of anything to do. Then do this;

Try doing some exercise


Take a hot or cold shower depending on your weather

Read a book

Watch your favourite show

Take a walk while you listen to feel-good music

Go to the grocery store

Take a nap –Yeah sometimes what we need is just a good nap.

Cook something in the kitchen…Just move!

You don’t have to do all that at the same time; it could be one of each.

Don’t just be at a place, wondering why you don’t know what to do –this would only make you feel worse.

How to leave a toxic job when you don't have another lined up

The indicators of a poisonous relationship are typically the same, whether it's with a partner, friend, or family member: your views and opinions are not valued, you're the only one ready to compromise or put in work to improve the connection, and you continuously feel like you're walking on eggshells. It may have a significant impact on your mental health and well-being, as I just discovered firsthand. My toxic connection, however, was not with a love partner or a friend; it was with my job.   The term "toxic jobs" refers to unfavourable work settings that put a burden on employees' mental health. These environments often feature abusive managers, discriminatory or harassing conduct, heavy office politics, and a climate of gossip or rivalry.   And these settings are more frequent than you would think: according to a 2020 Emtrain poll, 41% of employees do not believe their company would take a harassment report seriously, and 29% had left a job due to workplac

Happy New Year in Advance

Hello everyone, Incase I have not said happy New Year in advance. Happy New year!!! Ugh, a lot of things happened to me this year 2022; I lost my younger brother in January , quit my job in May and quit the new one in October. I met some cool people and lost some. I went through an emotional roller coaster and my blood pressure got really high. There is a lot to unpack here but I really don’t feel like writing about it. Yes that is another thing; I have not been feeling like writing anything since I started staying at home again. I don’t feel like seeing people or going out. Been thinking of how to make money without having to go to work six days a week every single morning, facing Lagos traffic and all the crazies that come with 9 to 5. I feel hung-over typing this - tried to write articles every day but that didn’t work out, keep questioning myself if I am a good writer and why is it taking me this long to write something.   Two days ago, I was really upset and just irritated.
