SUPPORTING THOSE WITH ANXIETY – WHAT CAN WE DO?

DOES WEIGHT LOSS LEAD TO HAPPINESS?

DOES WEIGHT LOSS LEAD TO HAPPINESS?

Wow, what a question.

Do you think so? For me, weight loss does, in some way, lead to happiness. For some people it might even be the key to happiness but that isn’t the case for me. I do, however, agree that it can be key when it comes to my confidence and confidence, for me, supports a happier life.

THOUGHTS ON LIFE, LOSS AND STAYING GRATEFUL

Hello and welcome to the second of my new regular Monday blog spots. If you are a follower of my blogging friend Toni, a.k.a This Mama Blogs, you may have seen that I wrote a guest post for her blog a while back. This, of course, I would recommend reading. The title of the post was ‘staying grateful in a busy world’. It reflected a personal journey of my own, very relevant to what I have to say today. However, once you understand and, hopefully, experience how gratitude can support happy living, you find it doesn’t stop there, does it?

FINDING THAT HOLLYWOOD SMILE

Getting that Hollywood smile is something many of us would like to achieve. The idea of being able to smile bright and have a wonderful set of gnashers is something which can give us confidence and make us happy. We have talked about veneers previously but the top of the list for me is oral health and teeth whitening. I have tried different methods but are there others ways to keep us smiling wide? Let’s take a look.

SEVEN WAYS TO HELP FEEL YOUR BEST

As a reader of my blog, you may be aware that I am on a weight loss journey. As part of this, I have a weekly Food Friday series that focuses on my progress, including the ups and downs. I started this particular attempt back and March with a view to feeling better about myself by summer. Well, here we are. It is now that time of year where there is a lot more focus on body image and with there being much talk of getting “bikini ready” we can all feel a pressure to conform to what society would say is the ideal image.

WHEN IN FRANCE… EAT LIKE THE FRENCH?

With a friend who loves France so much that she plans to move there, I recently found myself thinking about the French way of life. This is something that she and I have discussed at length and me being me, it often revolved around food. I remember smiling at the thought of our countless drool sessions over the idea of cheese, bread and red wine.  Often glamorised, the stereotypical way of life in France is certainly different from England. So, if I pop over to visit her this summer, how could I stay healthy without denying myself anything? Perhaps some tips from the French themselves…
