How are we feeling? Nervous? Excited? Like we're in The Hunger Games finding out what district we're placed in? Gone are the days we wake up excited for what good news may come… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: November Week 4

A Year of Mindfulness – 37 – Bad Habits

Photo by Manan Chhabra on Unsplash Bad habits. Everybody has them. But some differ greatly to others. Bad habits might consist of swearing (guilty), drinking too much (guilty again!), smoking or overeating, among many others. They vary from person to person, though many people might find themselves having a bad habit that's shared by others.… Continue reading A Year of Mindfulness – 37 – Bad Habits

The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: November Week 3

Photo by Brooke Lark on Unsplash It's the second full week of lockdown 2.0 and I don't know about you, but I feel like everybody is losing their shit. And not in that really great, fun way where something really amazing happens and we practically explode with joy and hug and kiss each other with… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: November Week 3

A Year of Mindfulness – 36 – Awe

Photo by Luis Galvez on Unsplash About three weeks ago, I picked the week of 'awe' out of the mindfulness challenge jar. It's possibly my favourite task yet! The very first sentence got me excited. It said: "When was the last time you were wonderstruck? When you couldn't help but soak up the sheer scale… Continue reading A Year of Mindfulness – 36 – Awe

The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: November Week 2

Photo by Alexandra Gorn on Unsplash Well, the first full week of lockdown 2.0 started off with a bang (and no, not from the excessive amount of fireworks that have been going off for the last 6 weeks!). I had quite the dramatic start to my week on Monday! I was having such a lovely,… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: November Week 2

A Year of Mindfulness – 35 – Gratitude II

Photo by Simon Maage on Unsplash Week 35 was the week of gratitude II, but I'm not entirely sure that I ever did Gratitude I! If I have done it already, I didn't write about it which seems odd. Maybe I'll pick it out of the jar in coming weeks, let's just hope that I… Continue reading A Year of Mindfulness – 35 – Gratitude II

The Corona Diaries 2.0: Here We Go Again

Well, well, well. We're back again. Lockdown 2.0. How are we all doing? In advance of writing this post, I re-read all 12 posts of the previous series (which you can find here) and I have to say, I think I was perhaps a little naive to think that the second half of 2020 would… Continue reading The Corona Diaries 2.0: Here We Go Again

A Year of Mindfulness – 34 – Goodness

Photo by Nathan McDine on Unsplash The first week in October was week 34 of the mindfulness challenge, the week of goodness. It was essential this week to take the time to notice the good things that happen each day, and write down three things that made me happy before each day was out. I… Continue reading A Year of Mindfulness – 34 – Goodness

The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: November Week 1

Photo by NordWood Themes on Unsplash We're living in really rough times now, aren't we? These last few weeks have been quite difficult for everybody and I’m sending so much love and light to anybody who needs it right now. In the time since my last post, I've gone from having a job I love… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: November Week 1

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
