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 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

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?

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

A Year of Mindfulness – 27 – Compliments

Wahey - another corker this week! This week was the week of compliments, where I had to be on the look-out for all opportunities to compliment the people around me. I had to make sure to not overdo it, or say things just to flatter inauthentically, but I should wait for the appropriate moments and… Continue reading A Year of Mindfulness – 27 – Compliments

10 Things I’ve Learnt From My First Month on Twitter

Four weeks ago, I created a Twitter account so that I have a social media presence for my writing business. As such, I'm using it to follow writers, publishers, general writer-y things, and a few mindset positivity accounts for good measure. I am cultivating a dream, after all! Whilst I do have a personal Twitter… Continue reading 10 Things I’ve Learnt From My First Month on Twitter

The Corona Diaries Week 4: Legacy in Times of Corona

I was supposed to start my social media detox this week as I'm still taking in too much negativity online, but I failed miserably at my attempt. Next week, however, by the time this goes to publication, I'll be a few days into it and hopefully reaping the benefits of being predominantly offline! I heard… Continue reading The Corona Diaries Week 4: Legacy in Times of Corona

The Corona Diaries Week 3: Negative Nancy

Wow. What a difference a week makes. I feel like a virus (excuse the irony) has invaded my brain this week, taken away all my positive thinking and mindset from last week and replaced it with anger, frustration and general moodiness. So, I'm going to let it all out here, as quickly as I possibly… Continue reading The Corona Diaries Week 3: Negative Nancy

A Year of Mindfulness – 12 – Appreciation

Photo by J-S Romeo on Unsplash I’ve had a few weeks off the mindfulness challenge, purely because with everything else going on right now, I’ve been struggling to keep on top of things and I forgot to pick out a card from the jar each Monday. It’s annoying really, as the mindfulness challenge serves especially well for times… Continue reading A Year of Mindfulness – 12 – Appreciation

A Year of Mindfulness – 9 – Chores

Photo by Ashwini Chaudhary on Unsplash The Mindful Chore Week If there was ever a more boring topic than a week of mindful cleaning, I’d love to hear it. This week’s task was all about being mindful whilst you do your routine chores, so I was to be more aware when I was washing dishes, hoovering up 50… Continue reading A Year of Mindfulness – 9 – Chores
