1 Year Mindfulness Challenge

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. Well Bozza swooped right in and put a stop to that one, didn't he? Up… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: October #4

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! But somebody recently said to me "don't you blog anymore?" and it made me feel really… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: October #3

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

The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: September #3

Photo by Liana Mikah on Unsplash If you read with me weekly, you'll know that a) I'm super late posting this week - oops! And b) that I finished my full-time job last Friday (11th September), to work towards a new career as a Freelance Copywriter (more on that journey in this post here). My… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: September #3

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

The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: September #2

Photo by Devin Avery on Unsplash Oh my god this week is chaos. It's my last week at work which has coincided with the start of term next week and a plethora of technical and logistical issues that I'm frantically trying to sort. My work for my writing job has ramped up this week too… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: September #2

A Year of Mindfulness – 31 – Decluttering

Photo by Jeff Sheldon on Unsplash Woohoo! Sing it from the rooftops, finally a task that I did and enjoyed. This week is much better than last week's task! Week 31 (w/c 24th August) - the week of mindful decluttering! Now this is a task I can get on board with! This week's task was… Continue reading A Year of Mindfulness – 31 – Decluttering

The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: September #1

Photo by Nolan Issac on Unsplash We are officially in September! I don't know about you, but the minute the 1st September arrived a few days ago, I suddenly felt Autumnal. For me, September symbolises the end of Summer, the start of Autumn and Winter and it is the beginning of the darker nights. Usually,… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: September #1

Life, Reflection

Why I Quit my Job in Lockdown

I figured that given that I like to label my blog as a 'life blog', I should record the most important thing to happen in my life this year. I mean, really, it's not all that difficult to take that title given that not much has happened this year thanks to Corona, but it's still… Continue reading Why I Quit my Job in Lockdown
