Blue light from screens seriously affects our circadian rhythms. When your circadian rhythms are messed up you don’t sleep well. (Either that or you just keep going to bed late, which leads to less sleep…)
Summer is a busy time, and it’s easy to end up over committed. You feel happy and more calm when you make time for self-care.
Having a small creative project on the go is something I really enjoy. Inspired by some friends who knit beautiful things, I set myself the challenge of learning to knit socks.
The best way to build resilience and immunity is through everyday self-care.
I’m deliberately practicing doing one thing at a time. Sometimes multitasking is not only unavoidable but also kind of necessary, but mostly it isn’t. To be honest, the main kind of multi-tasking I try to avoid these days generally involves my phone.
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.
Homeopathy is a completely natural medicine which is one reason why people are open to trying it at a festival like Glastonbury. We treated almost 300 people this year, and I saw more than 20 of those myself personally. Most of them had not had homeopathy before and quite a few took the time to drop by to let us know how much it helped, which was lovely.
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.
Keeping my Sunday simple makes me stop and feel thankful for what I have., and that makes me feel happier. When I’m happier, I’m more able to enjoy small moments with my family before we all start yelling or someone starts complaining (Yes, that happens in my family pretty much every day!)
For as long as I can remember I’ve been taking steps to simply and live a meaningful life. Appreciating what I have instead of always wanting more.
