https://mummiesclub.co.uk/bilbord/3526 Let me start by stating that I’m overweight. Since January I’ve lost two stone, mainly due to illness and an inability to eat. Some of that weight has been lost through diet and exercise. Even after shedding two stone, I’m still overweight and I have a way to go. Weight is a hot topic and it always will be. Anyone can throw in their two cents whether they’re overweight, underweight, normal weight, they’ve lost weight or gained it. First-hand experience with weight issues doesn’t seem to be a factor when TV shows hire guest speakers or spats break out on Twitter. Everyone has an opinionRead More →

Perhaps changing the narrative from 'no regrets' to 'some regrets' could be the key to compiling a successful list of realistic resolutions for 2018.

http://www.chezlucas.fr/?rtywwew=site-de-rencontre-et-divorce-pour-faute&446=05 We’re constantly fed the line ‘no regrets’ and told that looking back is pointless and we should always live in the now. Everything happens for a reason, right? I’ve always subscribed to this way of thinking, and generally, I don’t think hanging on to the past is healthy for our mental health, whether we’re looking back in fondness or in sorrow. Too much of either can stop us from living in the now and working towards our future. But what if regretting the past and mulling over missed opportunities could actually help guide us towards a better life or help us to tick off someRead More →

Instagram: I don’t want to go back to midnight scrolling in bed. It perpetuates my feeble obsession with acceptance from others, which is never a good thing. Click through to find out how I'm cutting down on social media going foward and prioritising my workload.

http://madanha.ir/aribos/arini/4613 I’ve just had a couple of nights away with friends in the countryside and I chose to give myself a much needed digital detox.  I disabled notifications for Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, Telegram, WhatsApp and WordPress on Sunday morning and I don’t have any desire to turn them back on. My original plan was to get back to normal yesterday but I couldn’t bring myself to do it out of fear of becoming trapped again. I’ve had a quick browse through the usual suspects but the thought of being back on it 24/7 is kind of terrifying.  I’m sure for those who use social mediaRead More →

I'm having a digital detox for a couple of days and the prospect scares me. I think I've got an unhealthy obsession with my phone.

follow url I’m a little ashamed to admit that I think I’ve got a problem. I can’t seem to put down my phone. I know this isn’t a rarity because more and more of us are becoming addicted to the little world we hold in our hands. Usually, it wouldn’t worry me so much but I’m having a few days off work and going on a mini break with friends and I’m panicking about my blog. I’m worried that if I’m not posting, writing and constantly checking Facebook, Instagram and Twitter that when I get back all of my hard work will have gone to shit. DoRead More →

http://tjez.gob.mx/perdakosis/6057 I used to tell myself I’d be in a ‘proper’ band when I lost enough weight because I simply couldn’t fathom being the frontwoman of a rock band feeling the way I did. I’ve fed myself that line since I was a teenager, I’m now 32. I’ve been varying degrees of weight since being a teenager, but even at my lightest, I still didn’t bite the bullet.  I’ve consciously tried to push those destructive thought patterns to the back of my mind over the past year, and it’s done me the world of good. You see, the ‘when I’m skinny’ narrative is a big stinkingRead More →

Self-Doubt kills our passion, so don't surrender to it. Click through to find out how and why I ignore my self-doubt and embrace my true self.

source url I’ve been fiddling around on Facebook for an hour, trying to think of something to write. Inspiration is a funny old thing, and what can appear to be a mentally slow day can quickly turn into an onslaught of motivational thought patterns, and eventually, a blog post. I’ve been pretty overwhelmed recently, which is all my own doing. Last night, after a ten hour day writing, editing, tweeting, Instagramming, promoting, replying to emails and generally being on, I turned my MacBook off. You’d think I’d breathe a sigh of relief, relax and unwind, but I just felt defeated. I felt like I had so muchRead More →

I decided to use make-up as a form of self expression to help with my anxiety and fears. Read on through to find out why.

click On Sunday evening, I fell into a slump. A slump which was unexplainable and one that I couldn’t seem to shake. I’d stare off into space, with a feeling of emptiness and panic. I glanced at the calendar and felt a pang of familiarity. It’s that time of the year when my mental health seems to take a bit of a dip. I know that SAD is an actual thing, but I don’t think I have it. It’s just that the older I become, patterns emerge. In that moment I basically wrote myself off, convinced that anxiety and depression were looming. I’d been fearing itRead More →
