Flatlay of an iPhone on a pile of books with an Inspirational Quote

Instagram is a funny old thing and mastering it can seem impossible at times, especially with the constant algorithm changes. Despite this I have managed to maintain relatively steady growth on my Fridayfaye account this year - increasing by 1000-2000 followers per month and I have achieved this without using a single dodgy method - no bots, no fake followers, no pods. Unfortunately, I don’t have any magic tricks or instant growth methods to show you, but I do want to let you know the changes I have made to improve my Instagram growth with the hope that it will help you if your follower count has come to a halt.

Open each image in a new tab by right clicking and selecting "open link in a new tab" to save the full high-res versions. Happy saving!

My 4 Step Routine for Keeping Anxious Thoughts at Bay

Wednesday, 17 July 2019

Desk with a round gold mirror and pink peonies in a bag

Anxiety has been popping in and out of my life since I had my first panic attack at 11 years old. My most recent spell hit earlier this year following the loss of my mum, it made the grieving process so much harder because I had wanted to go back to work and find distractions but it forced me to stay home and think horrible thoughts. Since then it’s been an uphill battle to get back to ‘normal’, I’m still having the occasional bad days but I feel like I'm past the worst of it now. I thought I’d share some of my ‘anxiety routines’ with you just in case they help anyone who is suffering.
