Technology is a major cause of stress. Anxiety and insomnia are so widespread now, they are almost ‘normal’ and have a significant impact on immunity and hormonal health. In the ten years I’ve been in homeopathy practice, I’ve studied sleep, stress, and hormonal health as issues in these areas are on the rise. Knowledge is power and I always want to help my clients understand why they are not well. This helps to restore a sense of control and is a key part of my holistic approach to health and well-being.

A snow day

My earliest memories of snow was when I was about 4 years old and the snow was quite deep. My mum tied plastic bags over my red wellies to keep my feet dry but it didn’t work. We were going to the shops. My mum was pushing the pram with my brother inside. I was too big to be sat on top. My mum used to do all of our food shopping with the pram and both of us. It can’t have been easy in the snow.

My feelings about screens

Screens are one of the causes of stress which makes your body feel you’re in ‘fight or flight’ mode. When it’s happening all day every day, it’s really not great and tends to show up in our hormones, immunity and even our digestion and skin.

Simple things to enjoy

I’m not going anywhere this weekend but I don’t mind. A long weekend at home can feel like a holiday too. Having three whole days off is such a treat. If I’m honest, looking after myself is not always as high on the list of priorities as it should be. Taking care of my home is something I enjoy but don’t always have enough time for. This weekend they are the main things on my agenda.
