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. And I won’t lie, it has completely changed how I look at food and I’m much more conscious of what…

What Even Is Health and Fitness?

The more time I spend in depths of health and fitness online, the more I wonder what it’s even about – everyone seems to have a slightly different definition which I think, leads to a hell of a lot of confusion. According to the dictionary, health is defined as: “the state of being free from…

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…

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…

My Perception of the World Has Changed

I can only apologise for the lack of posts since starting my job. I’m so mentally pooped when I get home, it’s so hard to try and think of what to have for dinner not alone write a half decent blog post. If you’ve kept up to date with my blog, you will see that…

Why We Should All Try Harder To Stop Moaning

The fact that I am writing this is absolutely HILARIOUS as I was known for my moaning. And I still moan. Today alone I have moaned about traffic lights, slow cars, being tired, not knowing what I wanted for dinner and a sore arm. But what I have noticed is that I moan a lot…

GPs Are Now Prescribing ‘Nature’ As Treatment

GPs in the Shetland Islands are now ‘prescribing’ nature (e.g. walks and bird watching) as a treatment for mental health, diabetes, heart disease, stress and other conditions. Now before my time in the health care system I would have said ‘well what’s that going to achieve? – what a load of twaddle’ – but now,…

Just A Little Life Update

I am very aware that it’s been AGES since I’ve blogged or vlogged but I am pleased to inform you that I am back! Why the absence? Well I started my new job which I am loving BUT have been absolutely knackered after not working for four months. But because it’s in a school, it’s…
