Today I’m okay. Actually I’m more than okay. I’m almost off all my medication and I’m doing really good. I’m 100% recovered. I’ve been feeling myself for about 3 months now. I still can’t really believe it. I don’t think my loved ones can either. I gave one of my best friends a little squeeze and a kiss on the head the other weekend and she teared up and said to me “you’re back aren’t you.”Read Post
It’s Mental Health Awareness week. What happens when you do all the right things like exercise, eat well, spend time outdoors, sleep for 8 hours, take time offline but still suffer. What happens if everything in your life is going well, but you wake up one day and your world has turned upside just because of the power of your mind. I never thought I’d struggle with mental health. The best thing I know I can do to raise awareness and help others is to share my own experience of what happened to me this year.
I always thought recovery was a word only used when describing someone getting better from a broken leg and doing Physio exercises or a word used for drug addicts in rehab. I never thought recovery would be the word that defined the start of my 2019. I never thought 2019 would be the year that changed me forever.Read Post
I’m definitely not a sustainability expert or the best eco warrior out there but it’s hard not to ignore that we are heading towards an environmental crisis point. I am making changes and becoming a more conscious consumer and as cliche as it might sound we need to be the change we want to see in the world. If we can’t positively make change holding onto the hope that every little bit counts then we may as well give up.
So I thought I’d do a little post highlighting some places, books and ideas that are helping me along the way. Everyone is on their own journey when it comes to sustainability but there’s no denying the fact that the planet is in desperate need of some love and everyone has a role to play. I hope this post inspires you to make some positive changes. Please share with friends, every little bit counts…Read Post
As I’ve got older I’ve definitely become less obsessed with presents and the “stuff” that comes with Christmas. It’s much more about quality time with family, catching up with friends, long wintery walks, cosy Christmas films and spending a lot of time in the kitchen. I still love the gift giving part of it and really like to take my time and think about what that person would really love.
