So what is Self Care, anyway?

August 09, 2020 4 Comments

Self care is a commonly used phrase these days and as a society we are encouraged to prioritise it. But what does it actually mean? Often associated with candle lit bubble baths and trips to the spa, the ‘self-care’ hash tag is found underneath images of shopping trips, nail appointments and  following an afternoon pamper.
All of the above can absolutely be a form of self care; however depending on your current circumstances, self care can be as simple as brushing your teeth and paying your monthly tax bill. How glamorous!?
There is no specific list of rules surrounding self care activities, it’s all about considering what you need (and what is realistic) in the present moment and making that a priority.

Nourishment, not Punishment!

August 01, 2020 5 Comments

Our weight does not determine our health. Weight shamming language, judgement and pressure to change our bodies quick will cause more harm than good. Our diet isn’t the sole contributor to our weight, and it is important to remember not everyone is in the position or has the resources to make a change. Of course we want to support people to reach their health goals and to feel their best, however we need to consider taking an approach which will be more suited to individual needs and circumstances.

Inner Witch - The Garden Eatery

Inner Witch

February 20, 2020 9 Comments

I believe we all have an inner witch. Something inside us that knows we are capable of creating magic, of connecting to something bigger than us, of alchemising, of sisterhood. 

The difficulty is my ego can have (not always) a problem with it. It’s so far away from the part of me I would have owned in the corporate world. The part of me that’s always been conditioned to value logic, reason, evidence, hard work over the intuition, the magic, the connectedness, the act of surrendering

I thought I’d change it up for this post and write about something non-food, but equally feel-good, and as it’s my final semester as an English student, reading seems the perfect topic (and one I inevitably can’t escape!). I am a big believer in the soothing power of a cup of coffee and a good book; get your fluffy socks on, your mug filled, and a couple of lines from a book you love can provide that needed shot of inspiration. I keep a journal of quotes I’ve read that have really stuck with me, and after flicking through, I’ve come up with my 4 favourites:

‘Tis the season! With Christmas parties, yummy food and the occasional mulled wine, bring on the celebrations!
