How I Fell In Love With Running Again

I’ve had a little bit of a love/hate relationship with running over the last few months. I loved getting my 50th parkrun milestone done at last, but I hated how painful some of the runs felt on the way.

Yesterday, I decided to take myself out for a short run in the afternoon to clear my head. Just a 20 minute bimble. Prior to my run, I spent 20 minutes trying to do up my damn sports bra. Don’t get me wrong, it’s SO important to wear them and I swear by this particular style as NOTHING moves. But they also… View Post

Beat Blue Monday with the Philips Wake-up Light

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
