A nourishing new year…..

I love this article from mind body green and it is along the same lines as I like to approach the new year: https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/mbg-has-a-bold-take-on-new-years-resolutions-join-our-movement January is not a time for dieting and restricting, it is a time of ensuring good nutrition to hopefully keep the coughs and colds away. Make your dinner plates interesting, add...

New Year – time for YOU….

You can’t go far this time of year without seeing some mention of the New Year Resolution – weight loss, get fit, create a budget, stop smoking – I could go on. There is no doubt that after some fairly heavy eating and spending over the Christmas period as well a multitude of social activities, January is a...

2018 – the story so far!

How has your first week of 2018 been? I have made a few small changes but they have made a massive difference to my mental and emotional wellbeing. I am a great list person, but the problem with this is that I just keep adding and become overwhelmed with the amount I need to do....

Will do list for 2018

I subscribe to the simple things magazine and in each issue, there is always a could-do list for that month, in December it was: Take a night-time walk to see the Christmas lights Remember your time is as valuable as any present Aim to do one small act of kindness every day Do things one at...

Seasonal Self Care

It can be a little bit crazy in the lead up to Christmas; rushing around ensuring you have got the shopping sorted, whether that be groceries or presents, most likely both! Perhaps you also have a list of social activities to attend, lucky you if this is the case? At the beginning of each week,...

Black Friday? No, a colourful 2018!

Today is Black Friday when it all goes a bit crazy as people try to get a good deal in time for Christmas; unfortunately it doesn’t always show the human race at it’s best. I still remember a news item from a couple of years ago where people were literally climbing over each other to...

Remember, remember the 5th of November!

Fail to plan – plan to fail! I’ve planned my blog topics until the end of the year and today is meant to be with a firework theme, slight problem in that I can’t get any inspiration to write on this topic. Not a problem though, just because you have a plan doesn’t meant you...

Charity begins at home..

In June 2008 we lost our Mum to cancer and as you would expect it was a massive loss to our family; her final days were spent in a hospice but I have no doubt that this difficult period in my life has shaped my decisions and life choices in the years that have followed. Mum’s...

Pumpkin Party!

We’ve been blessed with good weather during this half term holiday so today we took advantage of the sunshine and spent the morning at Pumpkin Moon. Every year I see a variety of pumpkin collecting photos on Facebook and this year we finally made it there ourselves. We spent 2-3 hours outside in which time...

Half Term Havoc

So if you are like me and have the children on half term holiday next week, you might find it a bit of a struggle to follow your normal exercise routine. Getting to the gym or a class is difficult when you have small people around. All is not lost though, you just need to...

Time for you….

Today try a walking meditation in a park or garden. Walk extra slowly, synchronizing your breathing with your steps, so with each step you take a breath in or out. This connects you with your body. Are you constantly spinning your way through the week ? Are you trying to juggle work, family, home and...

5 ladies at a castle…

Whenever we return from a camping trip, whether it be four nights or fourteen nights, I always feel that I am starting back again from a place of calm – and it feels great! I realise that camping is not the holiday choice for everyone but I absolutely love it. Having no access to wi-fi...
