Lunchtime ramble

What kind of person do you believe you are? Well, it’s late February and this is my second blog post of the year, so it’s time to stop overthinking and just put some words out into the world. I’ve set myself a timer to write for 20 minutes of my lunchbreak and then hit “publish”.…

Habit building

Happy New Year, friends! Can we still say that on 7th January? I’m using this cold and usually fairly boring month of the year to try to start building some better habits. I don’t really believe in the whole “new year, new you thing” (I’m fine as I am, thanks!). But personally I like to…

How (not) to rest

Hello! I’m starting to feel vaguely human again after a week of being ill last week (people were not lying when they said there are some awful colds around at the moment). Reflecting on that week – because I love to overthink everything – I realise how completely terrible I am at just doing nothing.…

I went on a “date”

I wish I could say my blog hadn’t gone the same way as 99% of blogs and sat gathering dust for almost a year, but here we are. If you want to know why I left, why I’m back or who I am, there are more details on my new About Me page! Anyway, on…

Thank You, “Time to Change”

Yesterday, I read the sad news that the Time To Change campaign will be coming to an end in England in March next year, as the Government has confirmed it will no longer be in a position to provide funding. Time To Change has been working for 15 years to improve attitudes around mental health,…

“Mental Health for All”

It’s #worldmentalhealthday, and the above is the theme set for this year by the World Federation for Mental Health. So I’m sitting with my morning coffee contemplating what action I can take to help achieve this.I am now reliably in the habit of taking action for my own mental health – a quiet, slow morning…

Quiet

Quiet…is a thing I’m trying to get better at lately. I’m really trying to find some time each day to be completely “still” (mentally, at least) – maybe relaxing by reading or cross-stitching, maybe going for a slow walk outside with no music or podcast in my ears, or maybe just lying on my yoga…

Monday Motivation: “To-Do Lists”

It’s Monday! And I’ve recently re-discovered a bit of motivation after it temporarily escaped me for most of May and June, so I thought today was a good time to start a little Monday Motivation series. Partly because it’s absolutely pouring with rain today and the bad sort of “Monday feeling” is threatening to take…

Why I Run

Happy Saturday all! It really is a happy one in my house, because the sun is (finally) shining and I’m writing this while eating porridge in preparation for a little solo run in an hour or two. I’m feeling particularly good today, because I’m actually excited about running. When daily exercise was the only time…

Where have I been?

Hello! I nearly didn’t write a blog post this morning, and I’m writing this sentence still unsure of whether I’m actually going to hit the “Publish” button when I get to the end. I wanted the next thing I wrote to be really happy and positive and, honestly, I haven’t felt very happy or positive…
