January and self care - new socks anyone?


I recently shared on my Facebook page an article by Brianna West about self care - it shouldn't be a one off spa day or the odd yoga class to help you momentarily escape from your exhausting, overwhelming life, it should be about changing your life in small, or maybe big, ways to make it satisfying and constructive for you.

As a single mum of 3 kids, this really struck a chord with me. It's amazing how the "just keep swimming" mantra, in the words of a certain little blue fish called Dory, becomes all consuming, just keep going through the relentless demands of everyday life, hoping that a glass of wine, a hot bath or booking a massage will somehow make it all bearable again...

But actually, what are the really annoying everyday things that if you could get round to changing would make a big difference?
