It’s strange how things have to get to such a bad place before you realise that you need to take care of yourself.  For too many years I neglected me.  I put everyone else before myself and honestly believed I didn’t deserve to be happy.  Luckily, and finally my eyes have been opened.  I am trying my hard to be kind to myself. Not pushing myself to keep up with theunrealistic pressures others and socirty are putting on me. If the truth be told I’m putting the pressure on myself and things needed to change. It’s time I looked after… View Post

Have you ever heard of the saying ‘life is what we make o it’?  It has taken me such a long time to realise this.  I am in control of my life.  I know that I can’t control others actions but I can control how I react to them.  I have realised that the smallest changes can make so much difference to my wood and out look.  These are some of the small changes I have started to make: Self Care For me, self care can mean so many things; drinking a hot(!) cup of tea, meditating,spending time with loved… View Post

It’s been a tough couple of years.  I’m really hoping for a change.  It just seems to have been one thing after another the past few years.  Although I’ve certainly had things worse than they are currently, life was thrown up in the air the past few weeks health wise.  I’ve had medical appointments galore the past couple of weeks and the week before last I was inolved in a car crash.  Let’s just say someone thought in fun to turn right straight in front of us, no indicators, nothing.  Result?  A rather crunched car.  In the bigger scheme of… View Post

Many of us get to the end of the year, and put our goals on hold. With the party season coming up, it’s so easy to think ‘I’ll start in January’ but this is a flawed way of looking at things. Life is short, and we should all be making the most of the time we have right now. Even if 2018 hasn’t been your best year, you still have a whole month to pack in some new experiences and end it on a high. Here are some ideas for making the most of the end of the year! 1.Start… View Post

Source In spite of every pack containing serious warnings and descriptive images about the carcinogenic and other derogatory health impacts that smoking can have on human health, millions of people in the United Kingdom still smoke cigarettes on a daily basis. It is easy to call it a bad habit and be done with it, but the truth is more complex than that. Smoking is a physical and psychological addiction which is easy to adopt but extremely hard to get rid of. However, it is possible to lose the habit and repair some of the damage before it’s too late.… View Post

Over the past 18 months I have seen that there are so many things going on in my life that needed to change.  I’m aware some of these things are out of my hands and no matter what I say or do, I con’t control the actions of some people.  I’ll admit, it baffles me why they are doing what they are doing and their actions have made me ill, ill enough to have to be admitted to hospital.  I have a number of long term chronic health conditions and they don’t react well to stress.  Someone is hell bent… View Post

Pxhere There will come a time in anyone’s life where they begin to question themselves. They will look in the mirror and immediately start picking out all of the things they don’t like, and how they would change them in a heartbeat if they could. The thing is, while there’s nothing wrong with wanting to improve yourself by getting fit and healthy, it’s very easy to obsess over things that shouldn’t be obsessed over, and that’s because we all have our own list of insecurities. This is perfectly normal and happens to everyone, but having said that, it doesn’t make… View Post
