I’m absolutely taken by the new wellness trend sweeping homes everywhere – Hygge. It’s been hard not to avoid, but if you’ve missed it it’s something you’ll certainly want to get involved in!  Hygge, pronounced ‘hue-gah’/’hoo gah’ comes from wonderful Denmark. It essentially stands for cosyness and all the things that make you feel warm inside. Since living in Aarhus, Denmark,  I’m ‘slightly’ obsessed with scandi culture and Hygge is the latest trend I’ve embraced.  I’m hygge-fying my life to the max this winter;  think cosy-nights in, hot tumeric lattes, snuggly blankets, dinner parties with friends and candles – LOTS of…

Have you ever been on holiday/ travelling and felt like you need a holiday in order to get over the holiday? Since returning from my travels things have felt a little ‘stuck’ waiting for the next big thing to happen to move things in the right direction and frankly the waiting game isn’t working. The New Year provides a great chance to reflect on your goals and re-focus your future journey.   These past few weeks I’ve given myself a self-compassion fuelled kick up the behind and put in place some serious steps to get this mid-ish 20’s life party…

The list is ever growing as I’m only new to the practice of mindfulness and cant help…

Since bringing mindfulness home from the classroom I realised the need to create a calm, uncluttered space in which to practice comfortably. At first this posed some issues, living in a shared house with a small budget for decoration doesn’t exactly lend itself to the dream of creating a spacious separate room dedicated to mindfulness. Instead I needed to work with what I had, my teeny bedroom crammed to the brim with all my worldly possessions. I found lots of inspiration through other bloggers and looked to Pinterest to establish a theme and pick up some tips. (You can see my Pinterest board here).  Below…

Before diving right in with tips and practices  It might be best to explain where my interest in Mindfulness began and the approach I take towards it all. Previously I mentioned The Mindfulness Project.  All of this wouldn’t be possible without that place. The Mindfulness Project is the centre in Fitzrovia where I attended my 8 week MBSR Mindfulness course. This place is A-mazing. Like seriously good. Starting with their top-floor haven in the beautifully grandiose 18th Century Georgian townhouse in Fitzroy Square (nestled behind Warren Street station) all the way through to the friendly staff and great bunch of people I…
