Hey peeps 🙂
How have you all been?
So much has been going on since I last posted in April. Initially, I consciously decided to not work on my blog because of a course that I was doing. Once I had completed the course I realized that I was completely burnt out and hadn’t given myself time to recharge. I cannot stress the importance of putting yourself first, especially when you feel like you’re perpetually exhausted and truthfully I had been feeling that way for a while.
While I was taking a break from blogging, I read Vex King’s ‘Good Vibes, Good Life’ book in one weekend (so you can probably tell how I feel about the book)
Scroll on down to read my review!
Who is Vex King?

I’d been following Vex King for a few years on both Twitter and Instagram (@vexking) as I found his content both motivational and relatable, it’s definitely worth following him.
Good Vibes, Good Life
When I bought the book, I couldn’t put it down – I managed to read the entire book in one weekend! I thoroughly enjoyed it on so many levels. One thing that stood out to me the most was the authenticity of the book, the entire book is filled with the authors’ anecdotes which made the advice much more personable and relatable.
The book takes a more practical approach in terms of addressing the issues, trauma and habits that can bring you down in life as opposed to simply ‘being positive’. Chapters like ‘Check your own behaviour’, ‘Your mentality is your reality’ and ‘Lessons will repeat themselves’ not only provide great advice but give tips to unlearn some of our own toxicity too.
Self-love, or the lack thereof, is central to understanding how our lives are effected by our own mentality, behaviour and actions. The references to Philosophical concepts made the points in the book all the more valid and personally aligned with my own beliefs. Like Manifest Now by Idil Ahmed, this book doesn’t focus on religious concepts but rather is grounded in spirituality which is all the more accessible for anyone to read regardless of their background.
As I mentioned before, I was feeling completely burnt out from running a blog, working full-time and trying to maintain a balance in life. It was important to take that step back and acknowledge where I was going wrong (i.e not taking time out for myself). Reading this book helped give me reassurance that it’s okay to prioritize myself and provided a new perspective on self-love.
I’d love to know your thoughts on this book and my review. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did.
