Asya Alert: Why It’s Okay To Take Breaks

Hey loves!

I have taken another nine-day hiatus from Caution District. In my absence, I have been working on the new July issue of Spotlight and planning out my next moves in my personal life. I have a lot of aspects shifting in my personal life right now that I am trying to adapt too. In this state of transitions, it really has taken a toll on my creativity and mindset. Since I can not change the environment I am enduring the only thing I can do is change my outlook on the situation.

Why It’s Okay To Take Breaks

I have often tried to stick to a schedule of posting a certain amount of content on all my social platforms. Like an unkempt car, I would be on the GO GO GO and not take time for ”maintenance check-ups”. What I mean is checking on my state of being. My mental health. Last month was mental health awareness month. Mental health is a topic that is rarely talked about in society until something tragic happens like the loss of an icon such as Kate Spade or in the legal defense argument of a school shooter.

A short time ago I thought in order to be successful in my endeavors I had to be working 25/8 around the clock, but that is not the case at all. In order to work efficiently, I as a creator have to take breaks to process ideas, projects or whatever is going on around me. I would have to give myself permission to live in the moment and not worry about the next detail of angle. Now I grasp that it is okay to sit back and relax or even allow yourself to mourn. Even the best of the best we’re faced with situations in which they were baffled and lost in the moment. I have come to comprehend that working without ceasing or as some say ”constantly being on the hustle” is not for me. And that’s okay.

What’s the latest happening on Caution District

I have been doing a lot of spring cleaning on the blog today. Over the years of I have changed a lot about the content I produced. I have also been reflecting on the daily blogs that are posted on this platform. Right now I am not in a creative overflow to produce daily blog posts of value. To bring my readers more value I am going to start four days out of the week. The days that I will be posting are Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Monday through Friday the posts are scheduled to release at 8 am EST. Sunday’s post is scheduled to be released at 10 am EST. This change will give me more time to create better and more meaningful content.

Current Blogging Series Rundown

We have two blogging series going on right now on Caution District. The How To Be A Dreamer series and the newly released series Confessions Of a Blogaholic. The How To Be A Dreamer series focuses on what it takes to get in a dreamer’s mindset and how to make your dreams a reality. The Confessions Of a Blogaholic is a series that express the ups and downs of the what it takes to be a successful blogger with killer content.

What’s Been Axed?

All good thing must come to an end, right? With much thought gone into the decision Asya’s Dishing Out The Issues will no longer be featured on Caution District. I have decided to move those type of blog post to my (personal) yet still public Tumblr page.

Asya Alert (food for thought edition)

Hey loves!

This weekend I took a break from all my platforms to hang out with family. Not going lie I needed that break badly. I was burnt out completely. Sometimes I forget it’s okay to lay around with family and watch movies or go out for a meal. I have been a work and more work mindset. I started to see breaks as toxic because I am supposed” to be in a 25/8 grind mode according to some people. Which leads to my next point be yourself 200% of the time always! Listen to your insists and trust them because I promise you 9.5 times out of 10 they are leading you in the right direction. Also, don’t ask someone their opinion if you truly don’t care what they think.

Just a little food for thought to chew on this Mother’s Day. Happy Mother’s Day to all the boss women making it happen for themselves and their family! I am in awe you all.

Before I forget the count for the double feature of Spotlight is in the works! I am on cloud nine and can’t wait to share this issue with you all.

Hey loves!

I haven’t stuck to my everyday writing schedule for the past couple of days and for that I do apologize. In my most recent Instagram, I posted a picture of me speaking at a corporate event to a group of teens and young adults. I captioned the picture “be the change you want to see in the world”. If you have been following my blog for a while now you would know that is a phrase I take very seriously. I am not much of a talker in the complaining sense because of the one thing the world needs less of is hot air. I try to take action and trust in the word of God that things will come through and in His Will will be foreseen.

Food for Thought…

These are the questions I proposed on my Instagram and I will do the same this platform. What is something you all are passionate about? And lastly, if you can change anything in the world what would it be?

Ps. My blogging schedule will continue as regular again starting tomorrow 😊

Asya Alert (Easter Sunday)

Hey loves!

I have been a little MIA in this past couple of days. Over this Easter weekend, I have been getting refreshed in the gospel and disconnecting from the social media world.

Before going to church this morning I felt a little confused and out of order. I have been doing well with putting out content six days out of the week to be consumed. The feedback has been positive about the changes made on Caution District. I have some new projects that I have been brewing on to implement on Caution District as well…

After church as always, I felt reenergized and ready for this spring 2018 awaking. The hibernation is over today! If you thought these past months were pack with great content think again because greater is coming!

Have an amazing Easter with your families.

Hey loves!

I had a planned blog post that I was going to release today but it didn’t seem appropriate because there are so much important topics to discuss! Like the march for our lives protest that is happening today. One thing I have learned today is that your social media platform can be used for bad and good.

What I trying to say is be on the latter! One small act can make a massive impact if the right energy and motives aline.

Relax. Refresh. Reconnect.

My life has been extremely busy these couple of days if you have been following me on my Instagram. The new issue of Spotlight came out and I have been going to an event to another event. I am drained. Yesterday I took a break from all social media to recharge again. I am feeling a lot better. I slept for 12 hours straight I kid you not! I didn’t know how sleep deprived I was. Tomorrow I am going out of town so I am getting ready for that. I will be relaunching my YouTube channel so new videos will be coming very soon. I just wanted to hop on the blog and catch you all up on what’s been going on!
