Seeking sanctuary in mindfulness

Post written in collaboration with Vitabiotics I’m a person who gets stressed quite easily.

It wasn’t ever something that I really enjoyed, but now… View Post

Beat Blue Monday with the Philips Wake-up …

It’s January 16th, the day known as “Blue Monday”. Considered to be the most depressing day of the year, many people feel especially low. January is a strange month. We feel excited about the new year and new starts, but many of us feel miserable and sad with the cold weather, long nights, broken resolutions and a long wait until pay-day. It’s enough to make anyone want to stay in bed and hibernate, especially when you find it hard to get out of bed on a dark morning.   I definitely find it hard to… View Post
