I spotted this collection of lost gloves on my walk yesterday, and they seemed like they were okay in their little lost-glove community, even though they weren’t hanging out in pairs as you might expect. But I’ll spare you a blog post based on terrible lost-glove-related metaphors for life, and will instead stick with writing… Continue reading A list of things that are okay…
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,… Continue reading Thank You, “Time to Change”
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… Continue reading “Mental Health for All”
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… Continue reading Quiet
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… Continue reading Monday Motivation: “To-Do Lists”
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… Continue reading Why I Run
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… Continue reading Where have I been?
Happy Sunday all! My last few blog posts have been a bit on the heavier side, so I thought today I’d switch things up a bit and talk about cake. Anyone who knows me well will know how much I love to bake. Aside from the obvious benefit of maintaining a good supply of snacks… Continue reading Cake Cake Cake
It’s been a while – well, 3 weeks. Which I guess is a while for a blog that was supposed to be updated weekly. I don’t know about you, but I’ve become a bit too comfortable in my little #stayhome bubble these past few weeks. To be honest, I really quite like my own company.… Continue reading Hello, Outside World!
“Finding time to be kind” This week was Mental Health Awareness Week, with this year’s chosen theme being “kindness”, and it’s taken me all the way until Sunday to write anything on here about it. Which is odd, considering I usually have a fair bit to say about mental health. I suppose with the news… Continue reading Reflecting on Mental Health Awareness Week
