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…

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…

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 Joys of Having Anxiety

This weekend was fun. Not. Well Saturday was fine until 6.15pm when my body decided to be annoying and I had an oesophagus spasm. Yeah, it is a thing. The whole unemployment thing has really been getting to me as it likely that we may have to move house at some point and that breaks…

I May Be Unemployed but I’m Feeling Empowered

Sorry for the lack of posts in the past week… I’ve been busy tying us loose ends at my own old job. Last time I blogged I had just quit my job and I had a week of writing 16 page reports. What I have learnt is that 16 page reports are completely pointless and…

Why I Quit My Job

Last time I blogged I was in a very dark place. I’m still not in the best of places but I’m feeling slightly better. The week got more disastrous after that post. On Tuesday I went on a visit to find a school in the community and TWO Sat Nav’s failed to get me to…

Hitting Rock Bottom

I have been desperately trying to stay as positive as I can recently, but today I’m struggling. To be honest, I know people go even lower than I am but today the feelings of disappointment, anger and failure are real to me. I’ve discussed it before but I have always had a strong internal drive…

Career Update: I Think I Have A Plan

As you may know my career and I have hit a bit of a rut and I’ve been busy planning/panicking about my next move. Last Tuesday I ended up having a bit of an epiphany at 1am. Over the next few months, you may notice this blog may change a little as I have grand…
