I’m proud of myself 

This month saw a huge bunch of talented, hard-working people graduate from university. If you’re on social media, all you need to do is scroll for a few minutes before you’ll see the graduation gowns, hats being thrown in the air and the end-of-university-and-graduation celebrations. It’s an amazing time for uni graduates; after 3, 4 or even more years of hard work, meeting deadlines and having to juggle living out of home with limited finances to get by on, it’s all paid off and it’s time to start the next, exciting chapter in their lives.

#WalkForWellbeing: The Benefits of Walking & Nature on Mental Health (& Giveaway!)

I am not here to repeat the utter tripe that started the whole #JustGoForAWalk frenzy on twitter a little while ago (if you don’t know what happened, basically someone said to the mental health community that their depression and anxiety could be cured by ‘just going for a walk’ – make of that what you will).

From my own experiences, I wanted to share some of the ways me and my mental health has benefitted from it.

That being said, I thing self-care is extremely important and if anything, the fact that it’s been talked about here, there and everywhere right now is a welcome reminder to all of us to take damn care of ourselves every once in a while.

8 Photos of Happiness

I was tagged by the lovely Leanne to take part in this tag, ‘8 Photos of Happiness’. I thought it was such a beautiful and uplifting idea that I had to give it a go. Just 8 photos with a short description of why it was a happy moment. So simple but effective and sometime, photos really do speak a thousand words.

This tag was originally created by Ariel’s Little Corner of the Internet and the intention is simple. Share 8 photos that represent a moment, object, place or feeling that makes you happy. Then tag others to share their own photos! So lo and behold, here are my 8 photos!
