February in reflection….

Well, here we are then- March!! 🐣 In reflection, February for me was a good month! I feel more organised, have more energy, and feel better mentally. I think my break away helped towards this.

Tinged with both elements of sadness and happiness of varying degrees within the film.

Simple but profound thought…..

Just a short, but hopefully poignant blog this week. Not only a reminder to myself, but hopefully a way of ‘reframing’ your own way of thinking and improving overall wellness. It’s easy to be personally affected by many things around you. Things you have read, what people have said directly or indirectly to you, life’s twists and turns that test you, even the way people react aroun...

Keeping it real!

I was driving into work today and it was a beautiful morning, one where you know it’s going to be a good day! This already helps to frame my positive day! I use my commute to work to partly think through my oncoming day, just as I use home-time to reflect on what has been. So this morning I was thinking about mental health. There’s been a lot of media attention recently on menta...
