Meditation #Fail #Fail #Success!

Meditation: A practice where an individual uses a technique – such as mindfulness, or focusing their mind on a particular object, thought or activity – to train attention and awareness, and achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm state.[1] I’ve heard a lot about meditation…. And yet I still didn’t […]

How do you help the helpless?

Eleanor Hall

Everyone will undoubtedly have to help someone who is struggling at one point in their life, whether that be from a serious illness, mental or physical, or even someone who is simply going through a hard time in a stage of their life. However, sometimes it can be seriously difficult […]

How to eat healthily at Uni

There’s no denying that healthy eating as a student can be tough. You have limited money, limited cupboard/fridge space, a shared kitchen – and you might not have the most comprehensive cookery skills just yet. But, as I mentioned in a previous post, eating healthily is one of the most […]

The Art of Cooking

When I was at University I realised how important cooking was, until then I had gone by thanks to my lovely mum who had always prepared every meal for me and my family and I never really picked up a wooden spoon in my life. When I went off to […]

let’s talk, periods

Period, a word that makes both men and women shudder. For YEARS I have been completely bewildered by the taboo subjects of periods. Women bleed every single month for roughly around 40 years. That’s a big old chunk of time, so why are we struggling to speak openly about periods? […]

A Letter to my Twelve Year Old Self

Dear Georgia, Everything will work out. These few years will be the most confusing of your life, as you haven’t found yourself yet. Don’t worry, as, in time, you will come into your own. I know it’s extremely hard to do, but let go of your worries and stop caring […]

It’s The Small Things

I’m not going to lie, this week has been a ridiculously hard one. It’s been a “kick you in the crotch, spit on your neck fantastic” kind of week- to quote Rachel Green. In all honesty, there’s been a number of times that I wanted to quit, just give up […]
