SUSTAINABLE SWAPS: DO YOUR BIT FOR OUR PLANET Less than a fifth of plastic gets recycled globally. There’s no doubt about it, we all need to do something before plastic really does ruin our incredible planet. Some will argue that it’s too late to make a change, but we can’t just assume that’s the case, without at least trying. We’ve got to a stage where we rely on plastic, but we need to make some sustainable swaps. It’s become something that we mindlessly pick up in a supermarket to hold our food and drinks, going to coffee shops, picking up… View Post

ARE FITNESS TRACKERS UNHEALTHY? MY FIRST FITNESS TRACKER I got my first Apple watch back in 2015, at a time when dedicating my life to a fitness plan, not missing a yoga session and being toned was the highest of priorities. Reading that first sentence it would be easy as an outsider to suggest that a fitness tracker might be a little dangerous and unhealthy on the wrist of someone like me, but we’ll get to that later. Other than a short stint with the Samsung GEAR (which I do think is awesome, just a little too bulky) I’ve always… View Post

Are you someone that suffers with tight hamstrings? Maybe you’re a runner? Maybe you lift weights, you cycle, you hike, you sit at a desk all day? Maybe you do none of those things, but just suffer with tight hamstrings. If so, give these five yoga postures for tight hamstrings a go. Remember that flexibility doesn’t happen over night, so sadly these stretches aren’t going to make you super mobile after just one day. I recommend trying some of my yoga flows on YouTube. They’re totally free, with sequences ranging from 10 minutes to 1 hour long. When it comes… View Post

In yoga and meditation we use different tools to help us set intentions and take our focus inwards. Yoga mudras (hand gestures) are one of the ways of doing this. With each one having a different meaning and use, we’re able to use the mudras to further our practice, taking it deeper into the mind and soul, as well as just the body. There are many different yoga mudras, so I’ve selected three of my favourites to share with you in this blog post. Namaste mudra, Kali mudra and¬†Padma mudra are my chosen mudras because they are the ones I… View Post

This blog post contains an advertorial for Berghaus Welcome to 2018 and my first blog post of the year! I’m writing this blog post from the sofa of our cosy cottage in Wales after a hike to a cute lunch spot for my Dad’s birthday. Those of you who have followed me for a while will know I’m a super keen hiker and wherever I go – whether it’s in the UK or somewhere further afield – I’ll always be looking for a good hike to do. Every year my family and I go out for a New Year’s Day… View Post

Another blogger writing another 2017 reflections blog post… yep, keep reading! ūüėČ In October 2016 I had a one-to-one session with an astrologist, who told me that 2017 would be the toughest year of my life so far, but that 2019 would see the start of my seven years of totality. I would like to say that I understood everything he told me and did lots of research after the session to work out exactly what he meant. I didn’t. But the statement about 2017 being a hard year stayed with me. I’m a very open minded person, but I’m… View Post

This blog post started as a multi-brand winter fitness fashion picks and very quickly turned into an appreciation blog post for one of my favourite brands and the seamless base layers that they’ve launched this year. Here’s looking at you Sweaty Betty¬†and your amazing Sweaty Betty seamless leggings and tops! *insert heart eyes emoji* For many the start of Christmas is signalled by a Christmas song on the radio, the John Lewis Christmas advert, maybe advent calendars in the supermarket or the switching on of Christmas lights. Those things are fun and all, but the real sign that Christmas is… View Post

This blog post contains a paid advertorial with Oral B My nighttime routine¬†begins with an alarm that tells me it’s time to put my phone away and start winding down the evening before I go to bed. In the wellness world we talk about having a morning routine quite a lot, but less about what we do before bed, our nighttime routine, which is silly considering that sleep is possibly the most important part of living a happy and balanced life. About 18 months ago I realised the need for¬†a nighttime¬†routine, so when Oral B came to me with the… View Post

This blog post contains an advertorial for MoveGB There are so many things about my job that I love, but even the parts of it that I love can sometimes put a strain on my work/life balance, especially when it comes to my fitness routine. When I’m at home I go to a local gym and usually you can find me doing my own yoga practice in my dining room – I’m sure some of you will know the room I mean from my Instagram, white floor, white wall!¬†The only issue with this is that I’m rarely at home and¬†lately… View Post
