Post Holiday Blues or 2020 Bliss?

The holidays are over and it’s time to get back to work on a full-time basis.  Does anyone else in part feel a little bummed but also a little excited to get back into a routine?   I’m feeling such mixed emotions about it all.

It’s shocking to think that 2019 has come to an end. This year has flown by and it doesn’t even feel like we’ve just seen the end of Christmas. 2019 has been a fairly difficult year all round, and I certainly feel as though my anxiety has taken a bit […]

How to re-think new year weight loss messaging

It’s not even Christmas yet, but already the ‘new year, new you’ messages are blaring everywhere we turn. ‘Have you overindulged this Christmas?’ ‘Feeling the bulge this January??’ There’s even a ‘drop a dress size’ weight loss board positioned strategically next to the festive food and drink offers outside my […]
