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?
Hello and welcome to another declutter. It is time to take a look through my jewellery collection with a view to reducing it significantly.
Hello and welcome to the second part of my declutter series. Today, in line with the KonMari guidance, Belts and scarves are on the agenda.
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.
Hello everyone and welcome to my November full-time blogging update. 3 months in and time for a little reflection. So grab a brew, get comfy and let’s see where things are.
Hello everyone and welcome to another instalment of my Happiness is… series. Stress is such a big part of our lives these days, with so many priorities and responsibilities and so relaxation can take a back seat. Even when people try to relax, they can feel lazy, guilty and/or selfish for taking time for themselves. If you are anything like me, you need a measure of both pressure and chill time, and with stress also being such a widespread health concern, we need to forget the negative thoughts about relaxing and accept that we need to achieve some balance.
As we have previously discussed, 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.
In my last video called ‘being mindful‘, I talked about mindfulness, and how being mindful is a way to train our emotional resilience. This, in turn, helps us to stay happy. One of the tips I mentioned was to notice the little things and as for me, happiness is… loving the little things, here are some of the little things that I love.
Having introduced my Happiness is… series, and touched the surface of some of the things that can feed into unhappiness, I am beginning my Happiness is… journey with mindfulness. Not all of the content in this series will be about mindfulness, but it certainly has such strong links to practices that can work to increase our happiness.
Having introduced my happiness is… series recently, I thought that it would be sensible to discuss Stress, Anxiety and Depression as issues that contribute to unhappiness.
