My New Year Resolutions – 2019

It is FINALLY 2019! Now normally I don’t hugely set goals for the forthcoming year because I know it’s unlikely I’ll achieve them so why pretend? However, after the ‘fun’ of 2018, I would like to put some goals in place to guide my successes for the forthcoming year. Lose Weight I even bore myself…

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…

Are Health Foods Worth It?

I will confess that for the past four months I have watched HOURS (probably days) worth of Health and Fitness Youtubers, and I will also admit that I fell for the hard sell of supplements that are regularly portrayed in their videos. Now I am not a nutritional therapist, and I am not qualified to…

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….

The Pressure of Social Media

Since announcing to close friends and family that I would like to incorporate health and wellbeing coaching into my messy and convoluted career, I have seen a slight surge of people messaging asking me for life advice. Getting it free whilst they can you see. Jokes. But as I’ve spent many nights sitting there with…
