I believe that small things make a big difference in everyday life. I have many small things I feel grateful for, and I try to hold onto that philosophy.
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.
The best way to build resilience and immunity is through everyday self-care.
This week I met his son John Carter Cash, as he was interviewed by my friend Colleen Murphy, world-renowned DJ and founder of classicalbumsundays.com, an album-listening club.
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.
Bereavement and loss can be a trigger for different types of illness, even when it is seemingly unrelated. Insomnia, anxiety and low mood are just three of the ways that we can be affected by grief. Shock and unexpressed sadness affect our body as well as our mind; it can show up in your skin, digestion or even your hormonal health and immunity.
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.
I believe we all have an artist inside of us. This book changed my life. I have told so many people about it that I’ve lost count. What surprises me is that I forget and when I see them again, they thank me and tell me how their life has changed.
Reflecting on the mother figures in my life has made me realise how they’ve influenced me in small but important ways and how much I miss them. I wonder how my children, or maybe my grand-children will remember me.
