Life is a journey, but work and screens can take over. Simple daily habits can offer a buffer. A few small routines help to create quality time and moments of contentment that make a big difference in how you feel.
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.
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.
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.
Sleep, yoga and journalling. Is that it?
They sound simple but are totally worth the time commitment; not easy to find when you have work, family and a personal life to juggle.
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!)
Irregular periods and poor skin often go together and there are many possible reasons why. I use natural food sources of zinc alongside homeopathy and herbs to help clear skin and balance periods.
Too much to do. Not enough time. You know the feeling. You just want everyone to go away so you can have some peace and quiet. Here are my top four ways to feel more peaceful when life is busy.
