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…

5 Top Tips To Achieving a Work/Life Balance

Within the therapy world, a phrase you will often here is ‘at 3am this idea popped into my head’ or ‘I was sitting on the loo when an idea popped into my head’ or ‘I didn’t mean to check my emails at 1am but I couldn’t sleep’. Being the heartless person I was, I always…

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…

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…

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…

The Difference Between Wellness and Wellbeing

Why I have decided to tackle this topic on a Monday morning is BEYOND me! Wellness and wellbeing – hot topics of conversation but what they do they even mean? Aren’t they the same? I decided to take this to a dictionary (sadly not Urban Dictionary on this occasion) to find out exactly what each…

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…

I May Be Unemployed but I’m Feeling Empowered

Sorry for the lack of posts in the past week… I’ve been busy tying us loose ends at my own old job. Last time I blogged I had just quit my job and I had a week of writing 16 page reports. What I have learnt is that 16 page reports are completely pointless and…
