I think everybody gets into a rut from time to time, thinking that all they do is work and when they’re not working then it’s chores or something else. Sometimes this rut lasts an hour, sometimes a day, maybe even a week and it happens to us all. Life seems to fill up quickly with… Continue reading Give yourself some self care daily, trust me, you need it!
Ever heard of the condition SAD? Seasonal affective disorder, that one. Ever thought upon hearing about it that it’s just a myth and nobody actually suffers from it? Well, if you open your eyes during the months of January and February it doesn’t take much to understand how real this condition is. Over the past… Continue reading A very ‘Blue Monday’ and the weather to fit it!

We’ve all had that moment when the list of everything that we have to complete that day is buzzing around our head, but it’s OK because it’s only…MIDDAY? How did that happen?

A friend of mine and I have recently started writing down five positive things at the end of each day. They can be anything from “an extra half hour in bed” to “a really good chat with so and so” or “a beautiful walk” and the noticeable effects upon my personal mindset (already) have been… Continue reading Five positives a day keeps the doom and gloom away!
