Body confidence. That’s a big old topic at the moment, isn’t it? Everyone on the planet has a relationship with themselves but growing to love our bodies, mind and soul is something that has taken the world by storm more and more over the previous years. Social media certainly has something to do with the rise in young (and older) people having body confidence issues for starters, I have no doubt about that. We’re constantly bombarded with images and articles on how we should look, what we should wear, how to get the “perfect” body. It’s ridiculous. Not to mention, there’s absolutely no such thing.
If you know me at alllllll by now, you’ll know I don’t relax. Ever. I just find it so incredibly difficult and I have this incessant need to be constantly productive, 24/7. I love how I’m able to get so much done. I love that I’m a goal orientated person. I love that I can get through my daily to-do lists and go to bed knowing I’ve physically done everything I could have possibly done that day. My organisational skills and my Type A personality is one of the only things I actually like about myself so I’m not going to go and start putting myself down for it! But…. I know that it can get unhealthy. We all need down-time. Every single one of us.
I love a documentary. From wild-life to death row to minimalism to sex robots; give me a documentary, a cup of tea and some biscuits and I will be one very happy bunny. I love learning things and finding out more about parts of the world and human nature and documentaries are the perfect way to do that. Of course what makes a good documentary isn’t just the topic and the quality of the shoot. It’s the presenter as well. I love watching someone who’s open-minded, doesn’t beat around the bush and want’s to get into the nitty gritty of whatever it is they’re learning about. Stacey Dooley is one of my favourite people to watch when I want to watch a documentary. She investigates some incredibly awful problems all around the world and I admire her a lot for being so transparent, so determined and so thorough with her research. So…. if you’re not familiar with Stacey’s documentaries, here are 4 that I think everyone needs to sit down and watch!
As you probably know, I’m a huge animal lover. I’m also a huge documentary lover and my absolute favourite documentaries to watch are those that are about animals and more often than not, it doesn’t matter what mood I’m in, I can always find myself getting lost in the animal kingdom. I’ve put together a little list of some of my favourite animal documentaries – those perfect for all you animal lovers!
I am a sucker for a good documentary. From funny ones to serious ones to just down right weird ones; I love them and I love learning about different people, communities, events and places all over the globe. I think they’re important too and can really open your eyes to things you weren’t aware of and give you a much wider view of the world and everything in it. They help share the human experience on a massive scale and I love that. Today I wanted to recommend a couple of documentaries I’ve watched recently!
