Take A Break

Take A Break

Hello there! It's been a little while. After taking a long needed break from a lot of things, I'm finally back! There are going to be a few changes coming up to the blog, but for now I wanted to say hi and ask are you ok?

I also wanted to say that taking a break is ok. Sometimes we all need a break and it's healthy to recognise that. It can be so difficult to not feel shame and guilt when we take a break. But it's important to remember to look after ourselves. Our journeys are not linear - they're more like a rollercoaster! I've learnt over the past few years, that staying still on our journey is sometimes what we need at that particular time. Their should be no shame in that. It was a difficult lesson to learn! But taking a break can improve other areas of our life. Take the time to work on mindfulness practise, or reconnect with old friends. It can give us the time to focus on things that we so often neglect in life.

So, I hope that you will continue on this wellness journey with me. I am also planning to include some interesting posts around my psychology research as well as lifestyle medicine..... and maybe a few photos of my dog!
