Buy Yourself Flowers

Now that spring has poked its head out to say hello, it’s made me fall in love with flowers all over again (a yearly occurrence). There’s something about them that just makes me feel hopeful and I find that having flowers in the home brings a real sense of freshness and vitality to the room. […]

Song Writing for Wellbeing

We all have emotions and sometimes experiences that we feel we can’t talk to anyone about  for one reason or another. I find song writing one of the purest and most honest mediums of expression; music is naturally connected to our emotions, and can help to unlock feelings where words may be difficult to find. […]

Staying centred & home working

Virtual working (in some ways) feels less ‘busy’ with no commute to and from the office, less rushing around, fewer meetings on different floors and generally no office ‘buzz’ around you.

Journaling to Boost Wellbeing

When the first lockdown was announced, I was one of the people that was stranded abroad. When I arrived back to London I was met with a ghost town, something that I wouldn’t have imagined when leaving for my travels, thrown into a mixture of uncertainty. For the first time in a while, I was […]

I recently came across a quote by American professor, lecturer and author, Brené Brown, which struck a chord with me in a way that I hadn’t expected.

Olfactory Reference Syndrome and Me

Where do I start…I have Olfactory Reference Syndrome (ORS).  Basically, I think I smell bad and that others can detect it.  However in reality, I don’t smell and it’s all in my head.  When I say bad, I mean really bad. From rotten eggs, sewage, cheese to onions and human waste. I don’t just think […]

Like many resolutions before, I’m tackling the smoky spectre of nicotine addiction, but this year I’m taking a different tack.    I’ve spent the festive break immersing myself in mindfulness practice (specifically following the ‘Waking Up’ app mindfulness training programme from Sam […]

I Hate Christmas

For as long as I can remember I’ve hated Christmas. Now this hate for Christmas probably started when I realised I wasn’t going to get everything on my Christmas list and my mum would make my sisters and I wrap our own presents (can you imagine). I would always try to muster up some excitement […]

My Journey to Mindfulness

I’m sure you’ve all heard it before… “mindfulness is a great technique to improve your mental well-being”. For me, I most recently heard it from my GP, so I was on a mission to give it a go. I’ve been one of those people that downloads all the apps, but I never opened them after […]
