How I’d Like To Enhance My Yoga Journey In the Future

AD | It’s safe to say I’ve been on a pretty incredible Yoga journey over the past couple of years. Yoga has become my life-line. My savior. My coping method. And my safe space both within myself and physically on the mat. I never thought I could love Yoga as much as I do. But …

Ways I’m Taking Better Care of Myself Physically & Mentally in 2019

GIFTED | I’m going to be honest… I’ve been shit at looking after myself within the last few years. I mean, I attended my cervical screening when invited to make sure all was a-okay down there, I go to my 6 monthly contraception reviews with the nurse, I get my eyes checked when I’m due …

Misconceptions of Yoga

As 2019 rolled on in, so did the start of the 10 year challenge, a challenge in which we would post photos of ourselves from 2009 and then from 2019 to see how much we’d changed or how much of a “glow up” we’d been through. Now, as someone who is deeply unhappy with her …

6 tiny things which will improve your every day well-being

In a society where self-care has become such a huge focus in the recent years and months, we’re often told that “these are the things we need to do when we’re feeling down / ill / depressed, in order to improve ourselves” and well, make ourselves feel that little bit better.

The Night-Time Routine That Actually Improved My Sleep

I’ve never been one for “routines”. Morning, night, work, whatever. Despite being an incredibly organised person, I always just tend to do things the quickest and most productive way.

What Yoga With Adriene Means To Me

The amount I talk about Yoga With Adriene on this blog, you’d think I was paid to do so. Well, unfortunately not. I can’t say I’m sponsored by Yoga With Adriene just yet (but like literally, that would be the dream) but I can talk about her over and over again and yes, you might …
