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…

Why We Should All Try Harder To Stop Moaning

The fact that I am writing this is absolutely HILARIOUS as I was known for my moaning. And I still moan. Today alone I have moaned about traffic lights, slow cars, being tired, not knowing what I wanted for dinner and a sore arm. But what I have noticed is that I moan a lot…

GPs Are Now Prescribing ‘Nature’ As Treatment

GPs in the Shetland Islands are now ‘prescribing’ nature (e.g. walks and bird watching) as a treatment for mental health, diabetes, heart disease, stress and other conditions. Now before my time in the health care system I would have said ‘well what’s that going to achieve? – what a load of twaddle’ – but now,…

Just A Little Life Update

I am very aware that it’s been AGES since I’ve blogged or vlogged but I am pleased to inform you that I am back! Why the absence? Well I started my new job which I am loving BUT have been absolutely knackered after not working for four months. But because it’s in a school, it’s…

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…

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…
