UNDERSTANDING STRESS REACTIONS

HAPPINESS IS… UNDERSTANDING STRESS REACTIONS

Resharing an old but slightly revamped post on understanding stress reactions today. Because this stuff is important. We all have stress.

As we have previously discussed in this series, stress is an inevitable part of our lives. Key to moving through these times and staying happy is to find ways to effectively manage the negative stress that we experience. For me, the first step is to understand ourselves and recognise where and how we are. So, today I am going to talk about my own experience in the hope that you may find this relatable, or as things to keep an eye on as a preventative measure.

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?

SHOPPER TO MINIMALIST

SHOPPER TO MINIMALIST

Hello everyone! Today I thought I would talk to you about my recent discovery of minimalism and give a little bit of background about what minimalism means to me.

SLIMMING WORLD WEIGHTLOSS UPDATE – APR 18

I have been making videos and blog content about Slimming World for quite some time now but I haven’t shared my progress. For a long time, I have been someone who knows how to do it but have struggled with motivation when it comes to sticking on plan. I, like many people, was restarting my diet every day! That familiar ‘Oh go on then, I will start again tomorrow’. Anyone know what I mean?

Cosy Christmas Loungewear

Blogmas 2017 – Day 20 – Cosy Christmas Loungewear

Hello and welcome to Blogmas Day 20! So, who agrees that Christmas is about loungewear? Anyone? We all like to look nice and spruce ourselves up for our Christmas celebrations but for those cosy evenings in with your hot chocolate and tub of Roses (or Quality Street! Or Heroes, or Celebrations, the list is now endless…) what could possibly feel better than soft and snuggly clothes that stretch as you scoff.
