How to Read More with Audiobooks

This post is sponsored by Audible. All opinions are 100% my own. I hadn’t always been an audiobook listener, but when I was in university, I didn’t have much time to read physical books and I started listening to audiobooks via Audible instead.

Dealing Through my Social Anxiety with BEACON

This digital life we now live in has changed so much in the last few years and I believe it truly does affect our mental health – many times not it a positive way.

Part 2: Amsterdam, Netherlands As one of Europe most beautiful cities, Amsterdam is a wonderful place to see. I found my time in this city quite enjoyable.
