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…

2018… You Have Been Weird

I know… I’m rubbish. Since starting my job in October, this blog has taken somewhat of a hit. I’m sorry! However, as we fast approach 2019 (and yes one of my resolutions is to crack on with this again), I thought it would be rather apt to look back on the past 12 months and…

Do We Really Need A Side Hustle?

I will openly confess that from 2012 until earlier this year I was living under a rock and it still terrifies me how I managed to miss SO much of what was going on in the world. Despite having accounts with YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat, I remained oblivious to the rise of vloggers…

It’s Only A Setback

  It’s fair to say that these past 7 days have been somewhat of a rollercoaster, but I’m choosing to ignore the couple of days of tears and focus on the fact that my mind has taken in SO much information. It all started when I was introduced to The Happiness Trap by Russ Harris….

Life Update: 4 Months Later

It is 4 months since I started this blog (where does the time go?) and I thought it would be a good time to reflect now that hopefully I have come through the other side. If you’ve not read my blog before you may not know that my career and I went through a bit…

Learning To Say No

The word ‘no’ is often associated with being rude, ignorant or selfish and is often discouraged. But is it really such a horrid word? In some cases yes – when we are turned down for a job, when our house offer isn’t accepted, when someone decides they no longer want to spend time with us;…

The Importance of Health and Wellbeing

I have dabbled with blogging since 2009 but could never find my niche – but at the same time I knew one day I would return. At the time blogging was generating income for some people, but it was still a bit of a whacky concept. Skip forward 9 years and the world of blogging,…

The Power of Closure

Today I got an unexpected surprise… closure. It doesn’t always happen and sometimes we just have to move on. But I’ve been struggling. Don’t worry, this isn’t the demise of myself and Tim (phew). If you’ve been reading this blog since its launch, you may know that my last 2 jobs have been rocky and…

The Joys of Having Anxiety

This weekend was fun. Not. Well Saturday was fine until 6.15pm when my body decided to be annoying and I had an oesophagus spasm. Yeah, it is a thing. The whole unemployment thing has really been getting to me as it likely that we may have to move house at some point and that breaks…

My Life Plan Continues to Evolve

  About 5 weeks ago I blogged about how I was going to pursue some form of career with nutrition and am well into studying my Advanced Diploma in Nutrition and Weight Management. Well this ‘thing’ has continued to evolve and I think I’ve found the that describes me best. Now I will be the…
