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…

Gut Health… Is It Just a Trend?

Until recently, I thought the term ‘gut health’ was trendy. Not even that trendy: only 1.2 million # on the old ‘gram (please bear in mind that famous slimming groups have 17 million and counting). But then as I’ve spent time dabbling in the world of #nutrition, #weightloss, #myweightlossjourney, #paleo, #plantbased I’ve discovered that people…

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…

The Dating Series: Being Yourself

Did you know that my middle name is  ‘Dating Extraordinaire’? ‘Tis true. I mean obviously it’s not, but for some reason people come to me for dating advice and I genuinely have NO clue as to why. Yes I bagged myself a dreamboat of a husband, but still. The guys before him were certainly nothing…

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…

Financial Stress: The Impact on Wellbeing

Whenever I say to Tim ‘we need to chat’, he instantly goes pale and sits down. Except he knows I’m not about to divorce him. It’s the line I use to discuss our finances and he knows I’m probably about to cry. You see, Tim hates chatting about money, whereas I like to know where…

The Power of Positivity?

The Law of Attraction is something I knew roughly about but hadn’t really ever considered but I’m now wondering whether there’s something to it… For the most part, since 2006 life has truly been a rollercoaster, especially since 2012. I had always just assumed that I had been walking into negative situations which had essentially…
