Mindful Monday #1

Hello! I know that over the last few weeks, I have been raving on about my Mindfulness course and now that it’s over, I want to share a few things I learned in the hope’s that it’s helpful for you aswell. There was a lot of information shared so I decided to do a three part series called: Mindful Monday (apologise for the cheesy name). BUT before I delve into the lessons, a few notes. Where was it taken?  FutureLearn (FL) which I have used a few times and highly recommend a visit to see if anything peaks your interest. Full course name: Mindfulness for Wellbeing & Peak Performance, courtesy of Monash University. Price? All courses on the site are FREE and some offer a participation certificate which you can purchase after completion of your course. Can I join in the fun? YES. The course returns, Monday 23rd May so if after reading you find yourself curious to learn more, head over there and save yourself a spot! What did it consist of? We were …

Three Things Thursday

Happy Three Things Thursday. I hope your days going well so far? I am finally back to my old self after being really ill, hence no T.T.T. last week. Was feeling too sorry for myself to write one but back to normal now, so below my list of happy: Making Progress. I still haven’t signed up to a gym in Japan and it doesn’t look like that will change anytime soon, so I’m still loving my at home workouts and the progress I am making. Most days it’s hard to stay motivated BUT once I take some time to think about it, I remind myself that it’s the taking part that counts… Right? Channels used: Blogilates + Tone It Up. New Music. Always nice to discover some new music to add to your playlist. Currently loving Twenty One Pilots album, Blurryface. They remind me of my teen years a little bit, which brings up some fond memories! Bullet Journal. I finally took the time to look into wtf a Bullet Journal was and I’m glad I …

Three Things Thursday

Happy Three Things Thursday.  How’s your week going? Keeping things short and sweet this week, so let’s jump straight into what has made this week lovely! Best Friend SKYPE! Despite time difference still making it difficult to skype as much as I’d like, my best friend and I had an amazing skype session. We spoke about everything but the majority of the time was spent with us screaming in excitement at the fact that we’ll be re-united SOON! Healthier Choices. I’m still doing Yoga Camp, hooray! But that aside, I’ve also been enjoying going for runs (who I’m I!?) and getting creative in the kitchen this week. Made a delicious and healthy spinach, mushroom frittata which was surprisingly DELICIOUS. (Mans)Best Friend. My dog has been in a sweeter mood (than usual) this week, giving me nothing but kisses and cuddles, which are always WELCOME. It’s definitely making the week run smoother. What or who has made your week lovelier than usual?

Reflection:December w/2016 Vision

Hello! Hello! This is probably the latest Reflection post, but I had to take a minute to stop freaking out. Usually with a new year, like so many people I go on a mad hunt for sources of inspiration in the form of reading other Blogs, Quotes and scrolling through Instagram. I usually leave feeling refreshed and ready to tackle whatever comes my way. This time however, the hunt hasn’t worked its magic. I can’t shake the feeling of anxiety. Mainly because last year was possibly one of the most revealing and emotionally RAW, I’ve had in a long time. Although with new years, signs push us to leave the past behind, let go and embrace whatever lies ahead. Personally for me with the lead up to 2016, I found myself anxiously biting my nails and letting out a HUGE sigh. I don’t want to let this feeling swallow me whole, before I’ve had the chance to see what beautiful things could manifest. I mean there are many possibilities, such as going back to the …
