A Year of Mindfulness – 33 – Self Compassion

Photo by Chris Yang on Unsplash I've succumbed to another blogging backlog but have no fear, I'm catching up once again in order (albeit with a few of the more boring weeks left off because I want to finish the challenge before the year's out and I'm running out of time)! Week 34 was the… Continue reading A Year of Mindfulness – 33 – Self Compassion

The 5 Minute Coffee Corner

The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: October #4

Photo by Heather Ford on Unsplash I posted a few days ago about the importance of routine and how I was just starting to feel a little settled with my new routine of writing and working in the wine bar.

30 by 30: How Did I Do?

I turned 30 in August, and so am a little - OK, very - late in publishing this post. But as you'll know if you're a regular reader of my blog, these last few months have been nothing short of crazy! I've been meaning to reflect on the last year, and just how much of… Continue reading 30 by 30: How Did I Do?

The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: October #3

Photo by Clay Banks on Unsplash I missed another week of posting last week - I know, but I've been cutting myself a bit of slack lately after an especially crazy few weeks. And I feel better for it!

The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: October #1

Photo by Mike Kenneally on Unsplash Before I start this post, I wanted to say that I've been humbled recently by the fact that people have actually messaged me to check in because they've noticed that I haven't posted a 5 Minute Coffee Corner or any other form of blog post in recent weeks. I… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: October #1

A Year of Mindfulness – 32 – Watching

Photo by Priscilla Du Preez on Unsplash Is it just me, or does this week's title make you think of a stalker? Don't worry, there's nothing weird about this week's task, it's actually one that I already implemented in my life a while back, so it was fairly easy! This week's task card referred to… Continue reading A Year of Mindfulness – 32 – Watching

A Year of Mindfulness – 30 – Squishing

Photo by Azamat Kinzhitayev on Unsplash Incoming rant alert. This week's task (which was the w/c 17th August) was the week of 'squishing', where each day before I got up I was to take a few minutes to complete the exercise. The exercise involved squeezing every muscle in my body tight, holding everything tense for… Continue reading A Year of Mindfulness – 30 – Squishing
