Family…..

After much recent ‘busy-ness,’ it was a very welcome break to have some of my close family over, to go out for a meal and a beach walk yesterday.  I think sometimes we underestimate the power of close family ties and bonding, on our own wellness.  Obviously this can be conversely true, but if you are lucky enough to have a strong family network and support,  it has been ...

Self improvements…

As January comes towards a close I thought I’d keep you abreast of my wellness focus and self improvement, for 2020.  For as many years as I can remember, my exercise and diet has been purely focused on both losing body fat and gaining muscle.  That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but I feel, more-so as I get older, it’s imperative to focus more on staying healthy and my longevi...

Not being perfect…

I’ve been thinking of writing about this for a while now, mainly as it’s very prevalent in my own life at the moment.  I much prefer to write about positivity, happiness and fitness,  but I feel I have a platform to write with these blogs. I’m hoping writing about it, will help someone else, or least make someone think differently.  Personally, seeing my mothers health and mental st...

Two sides to….

In life, there’s always two sides to every story! The good, the bad, the yin and the yang! This week encapsulates this point exactly, where it encourages us to truly value life and it’s gifts. I’m pleased to say that it’s edged more on the good side than bad, and that’s the way I’d want it, despite being able to always learning valuable lessons from life’s more testing times.&...

Help IS out there

I feel compelled to write this week on mental health. At first I wasn’t going to publish this but it’s close to my heart and very prevalent at the moment, so worth talking about.  I have heard of 3 young males taking their lives, in almost as many weeks, just from my clients, and those around me.  I thought suicide was on the increase but actually the stats say they are at an ...

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. (See picture of Lisa in the wonderful bath!!) What have I accomplished to make me feel this way? Firstly, I’ve joined a new gym which I currently go 4 times a week. My progra...

Freddy Mercury and the swimming duck!!

I’ve just finished watching the Bohemian Rhapsody, the film about the band Queen and Freddy Mercury - Wow! such a poignant film- I loved it! Tinged with both elements of sadness and happiness of varying degrees within the film. What struck me though was that underneath the public persona of the happy go lucky, party animal, was major inner turmoil and angst. But what can we...

Are you caring enough?

The holiday season is upon us and I’m pleased to say I’m in holiday mode! Wow! I feel like I really need it this year, much more than others. I have been exceptionally busy, which is a good problem to have if you are self employed, but In collaboration with this years events, i think it’s taken it’s toll. I think I’ve ploughed into work as a dealing mechanism and focussed on others to h...

Telling it as it is……

Sometimes I know exactly what I want to write from something that’s happened in the week, but this isn’t one of them! Whatever I write though, it’s always from the heart. I have to say my heads a bit mushed up at the moment, which always makes it harder to write. This does however ties in with the recent mental health week promotion, and the ‘it’s ok, to not be ok,’ moniker. ...

Insane in the membrane…..

Not too sure my brain is thinking straight at the moment, which is hardly surprising, considering recent events. Just to say though, that to maximise brain health it’s really important to consider the different ways of improving your own mental status. We know the benefits of different forms of exercise on mental health, but it’s important to incorporate different aspects, other than...
