"Self-care is accessible and applicable to everyone, but it's one thing knowing the benefits and quite another… Continue reading My first week using The Self-Care Project (Self-Care Sunday #39)

Book review: The Self-Care Project by Jayne Hardy (Self-Care Sunday #38)

I've been raving about Blurt on this blog for months now. For the uninitiated, they're a social enterprise dedicated to helping those affected by depression. They "raise awareness, provide tools and knowledge to help proactive recovery and challenge the stigma that prevents people reaching out for help". I've mentioned a couple of their tools before:… Continue reading Book review: The Self-Care Project by Jayne Hardy (Self-Care Sunday #38)

Self-Care Sunday #37

Self-care can be hard during the festive period. You're so bogged down with trying to finish work before the office closes for the holidays and ensuring that everyone else has a good time that it can be easy to forget to look after yourself. Plus, with the added pressure of gift giving and feeling the… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #37

Self-Care Sunday #36

You may have noticed a lack of self-care posts over the last fortnight. Not gonna lie, I've not had a lot of time for self-care, despite my insistence that everyone should be able to find at least half an hour for themselves each week. We all have our bad weeks.

Self-Care Sunday #34

There are few things in the world that tea and biscuits can't make better, at least for a few minutes. I feel like it's a very British thing to say but I'm sure we've all been in situations where something a bit shit has happened and the first instinct has been to put the kettle… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #34

Self-Care Sunday #32

I've been daily blogging for a while now and I bleddy love it - although some days it's a bit of a struggle. Don't get me wrong, this schedule is entirely self-inflicted; I have so many ideas and there are so many awesome brands and creatives that I want to work with that I am… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #32
