Back to work (or school) health hacks

Hi everyone, how are we doing now we are ‘properly’ back into January? I’m feeling fairly fresh and energised (which I’m attributing to some newly implemented habits) but if you’re not then this post might come at the right time for you.

Christmas

The Christmas fallow – what now?

Hi everyone,

How was your Christmas Day?  Are we all feel sprightly and bright or did we overindulge and feeling in a bit of a festive fug?  Well, hopefully you’re somewhere in between and had a great time, however you celebrated.  If you did indulge more than you originally intended, please don’t beat yourself up about it.  It happens, today is another day and another chance to have a fresh start.

This period between Christmas and the New Year (the Christmas Fallow) can leave you feeling a little ‘what now?’ as it is that strange time when some are back to work, others are not and there’s usually lots of leftover Christmas food to eat – but we’re all starting to feel mighty sick of the excess chocolates and cheeses.  With this in mind I thought I’d share some easy ways to use up leftovers in-case you are in the mood to start re-introducing veggies back into your diet and you’re feeling a bit ‘now what?’

I know that from the minute the house wakes on Christmas Day to the minute we go to bed that night it can be go, go, go and tensions can run high – especially when families get together and spend protracted periods of time in each other’s company.  It’s common to find yourself reverting back to stroppy teenage behaviour too easily when Aunty Gladys asks again why you don’t have a ‘lovely boyfriend’ or Uncle Bob makes a snide comment about vegan diets.  So how do you deal with it?

Self development

Gone fishing…

Hi everyone,

This week there will be a break from regular posts as I’m taking a little holiday to Lisbon. It’s much needed after a few weeks of intense Biology exams and essays.

I’ll be back next Sunday with the next post in the series of my sugar mini-masterclass.

If you can’t wait that long I’ll be posting over on my Instagram account – expect lots of food and beach photos. Until then, have a great week all.
