So about a year ago I wrote a post on self-esteem, body confidence and the media. I looked at how the current age of social media and unrealistic perfectionism infects us into striving to be something which is unobtainable. It's annoying but something I've never personally felt too pressured by. Interestingly when I wrote that… Continue reading Health, Weight and Feeling Yourself.
So that was it, 30 days of blogging every day throughout June all done! And what a month. I started off with the purpose of each post being meaningful, albeit with the awareness that some would have to be shorter. That didn't really happen now did it! Although I've felt much more connected to my… Continue reading The End
I'm home! Doctors weren't over the moon but I feel ready to be treated in the comfort of my own house instead of a sticky germ filled ward! Just sunk into bed with my creature comforts and it feels amazing. I'm a bit all over the place and a little overwhelmed by everything that's happened… Continue reading Home
Today's word prompt is ‘peace.’ How do we find inner peace? I used to believe I'd only feel this when everything in life had slotted into place, but I'm realising that through 99% of life there's always something we would change. It's rare we're ever completely happy with our lot. I found that the secret… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 22 – Peace

Search @MissMentalHealth for updates and extra content!*** Suggestive of lush green vegetation, today's word resonates with me. I've been lucky enough to do a lot of travelling in my life and as I've talked about before in this post it… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Day 8 – Verdant #BledJ
Today's word prompt was 'nurture.’ It also won't be my usual style, in all honesty I'm absolutely exhausted and a bit burnt out given everything that is going on in my life right now. It's a busy, stressful time. I was planning on delving into the nature vs nurture debate in this post but instead… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Day 6 – Nurture #BledJ
My goal for the beginning of 2019 was to write one blog post a month for the whole year and it's going well, the more I write the more I'm realising just how much I enjoy it. BUT I often find myself making excuses; I'm tired from work, I don't have time, the list goes… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Challenge!
