Happy Friday, everyone! It’s also the first week of May, and it’s looking like those of us in the UK may get to see a little sunshine & warmth this bank holiday weekend, which will be very much appreciated. How’s your week been going so far? After stressing myself silly over anything and everything possible lately, I’m hoping to get enough done before the weekend to be able to take some time to relax and clear my mind. Do you have any plans for the weekend? Whatever you’re up to, I hope you have a positive weekend and can find some reasons to smile.
Here are a few Frugal Friday goodies to check out =]
Free Online CBT
CBT is a fantastic therapy for many people to evaluate thoughts and emotions and can help deal with various issues, from depression and eating disorders to trauma and addiction. It’s not for everyone, but it’s worth trying. There are some great free resources online, including one I’ve just spotted this week :
Take 10 CBT is an online course in CBT that’s designed to be completed in 10 minute sessions over two weeks. There are downloadable worksheets on the website, and alternatively there’s app you can download.
This obviously doesn’t replace professional help or one-on-one cognitive behavioural therapy, but it’s an interesting freebie to try for low level support at home, at your own pace.
Superdrug Bank Holiday Deals
Superdrug have lots of bargain buys over the bank holiday weekend for those of us in the UK. It’s free delivery to store with no minimum spend, and free home delivery to those with a Superdrug loyalty card over £10.
For instance :
Less than 1/2 price on Oral B replacement heads for electric toothbrushes and other Oral B products
Buy one Get one Half Price on various allergy products, which may come in useful for those with hay fever!
Over at The Works (UK) there are lots of offers, discounts and generally low prices on everything from gifts and stationery, to crafts and books. You can get free delivery to store.
I spotted that they have A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle (author of The Power Of Now) for only £3, which is a bargain compared to the average sale price elsewhere.
I’ve posted previously about broadening our horizons through learning, and mentioned how I’ve taken various free courses online. Some of these have been through Future Learn, which have lots of new courses added regularly. These are totally free to sign up to (unless you wish to purchase a certificate at the end, which I never have, I’ve just made a note of what I’ve done and added them to my CV). There are heaps of topics, from healthcare, science and psychology, to coding, technology, politics and business management.
Have a lovely weekend everyone, whatever you’re up to, whether you’re going out or getting some much needed rest.
