I’ve been going to the gym since September last year (which isn’t long) and I can honestly say it has helped me in so many ways. If you are still looking for a reason to go to the gym/workout, let me tell you about how it has helped me.
I’ve collaborated with Laura (The mindful mum blogger) on this post to normalise mental health, and more specifically anxiety. It will be featured on her blog too, which you can read here.
Since I was 13, I’ve struggled with mental health, its been something that comes and goes. I’d like to point out I did have a really bad few years with my health when I was a teenager but now I am the happiest I have ever been. I don’t mind talking about my mental health, as it is one of the ways I made it through.
Laura put together a set of questions for the anxiety story posts. They are listed below, I’ve tried to be as detailed as possible. I know that talking about this subject will make it less ‘awkward’ or ‘taboo’. Please, if anyone has any questions, comment and I’ll do my best to answer!
This week I’m taking part in Invisible disabilities week! I have written a guest post for the chronicle sunflower blog! I’m so pleased to be working with her!
This post is part of Invisible Disabilities Week and I’m glad to be a part of it! There is more information on how to get involved here. My full post is below – have a read!

It’s only a few weeks away until my 5K race for charity. I’m not feeling too nervous at the minute but I know when I get to the start line I will be! I’ve never done a 5K before so I’ve been planning how I can get myself fit and ready for it. I’ve put together at little 5 week plan for my 5K. (See image below)
So I’ve recently got to 100 followers on Instagram, which doesn’t seem that much but its still 3 figures! Which to me is a little milestone! I’ve also started in my new job this week too, where I’ve been introducing myself to lots of new people and a new team. It’s quite nice that everyone in my team are new as well because it feels like we are all in this together kinda thing.
The idea for this post came this week when talking to all these new people and I realised that I haven’t really introduced myself to the people I’ve connected with over the internet. (Through Instagram, Facebook and WordPress itself). Also because my Instagram following has got to a little milestone lately too.
I thought I should introduce some hobbies I have:
