This weekend has been lovely. I’ve felt a sense of relief and release. Friday evening I did a “letting go” yoga flow that made me feel amazing and helped shift the pent up energy and inner conflict I’ve felt throughout the rest of the week. I’m so grateful for that yoga session and time I… Continue reading Gratitude post!
Today I wanted to share with you a list of things that work for me to keep my mental health from getting too bad. Now I purposely didn’t say that these make my mental health “good” or anything because doing these things doesn’t necessarily mean I will feel great. Or that I will never have… Continue reading List of 10 things that keep my mental health away from the edge
I've realised that there are quite a few things I've missed lately. Like holes in a wall that you didn't notice at first but now can't stop looking at. I've missed the ability to meet my friend in a cafe and chat for hours about books (our own and other people's) until we realise we… Continue reading The missing things (journal entry)
Continuing the Undoing Series, I wanted to talk about our obsession with competition, even for things we don’t actually need or want to “win” at.

For a few weeks, I've felt a little off. Not bad, just off. An ickiness has settled into my body and I've needed a shift in energy to get rid of it. I've analysed myself, hated myself, beat myself up. I've been a perfectionist and berated myself for not stacking up. Here are my confessions… Continue reading Confessions of an Overthinking Mind (podcast)
Today I'm dropping in with a quick one discussing two things: the origins of our fear and sadness, maybe there's a story you're telling yourself that links to it; and how our expectations of ourselves are causing us to be both the victim and the villain. Click to play! xx
I think right now I just don’t feel grounded at all. Like my foundations are tectonic plates shifting. It’ll either cause mountains of beauty ... or an erupting volcano or a straight up earthquake. I don’t know which. I don’t feel in control of the outcome. It’s overwhelming, confusing, tiring, discombobulating, and has caused a… Continue reading Journal Entry on Rising Anxiety
Firstly, DISCLAIMERS! I am not saying we all need to become therapists or psychologists and start diagnosing our family members with mental health issues, and highlighting traumas in our friends! I'm not saying that I am in any way a professional with the ability to diagnose or psychoanalyse anyone...like at all. What I mean by… Continue reading “Psychoanalysing” the People We Love
I've been angry and sad lately. Not in my personal life, because thankfully that's great, but with the state of the world and the negativity of the people in it. Today, I'm ranting about it all and seeing if we can be and see the light at all right now... Click to play! xx
