How To Tackle Loneliness…

Top 10 Ideas For Self-Care

Firstly, self care isn’t a new concept. It’s something we’ve been doing for years – it used to be called ‘me’ time. ‘Me’ time was considered to be for stressed out Mum’s that couldn’t wait to have some time away from the kids, but nowadays it’s much more acceptable for everyone to engage in some…

I’ve Signed Up To WW.UK And Here’s Why…

As you may well be aware, I completed a course in nutrition and weight management last year (which was accredited) and it helped me to learn about macro/micro nutrients and calories and all that jazz.

5 Top Tips for a Good Night’s Sleep

  I won’t pretend it’s not ironic that I had 3 rubbish night’s sleep last week. However, I put it down to being out of routine and a ghastly sickness bug I had (which was seriously random). Anyway, coming out of routine highlighted how much it impacts on my sleep without me even knowing. My…

The Healthy OT

New Year, New Me. Nah, not really. New Year Same Me. HOWEVER, I have decided to change the name of my blog from Telle’s Nutritional Life to The Healthy OT. When I first set up the blog, I didn’t know whether I would continue as an Occupational Therapist – I continued to believe in everything…
