Why you need house plants in your life

I confess: I’m not a naturally green-fingered person. I like the idea of beautiful plants and gardens but it’s a skill I’m working on. Luckily, I married a keen gardener who has covered our house in greenery which I love. However, I’m not just all about the aesthetic. Indoor plants are also proven to increase our mental wellbeing and physical health. 1. They improve your mood and reduce…

5 ways to drink more water

As someone who is approaching middle-age, I can tell when I’ve not been drinking enough water. My skin looks tired and wrinkly, I feel dehydrated and lacking in energy.

switch off sunday

Why I’m turning off social media once a week I love social media. I love how it connects people. I love how I know what my friends in other countries are up to.

Setting intentions (and not making resolutions)

setting intentions

Why I’m setting intentions For years I made resolutions based on becoming the type of person I thought would make me happy: lose weight, save money, drink less etc. They never worked, mainly because they were centred around giving something up. It just became another way to make me feel like I was failing as a person. I’m pretty sure most people hate resolutions for same reasons as…
