Reflexology is a ‘non intrusive complementary health therapy’. The therapist will apply pressure to the feet using specific fingers/ thumbs and techniques. It is based on the theory that the feet have a number of pressure points that correspond to various areas of the body and by manipulating these areas, it is thought to improve health and wellbeing.
As you may have read in my anxiety post, I see my writing as a way of de-stressing and releasing my thoughts. It’s certainly a lot easier to write about nice things, but not so easy to share the more emotional things that happen in a week. This week was a little more than just anxiety for me. I have high standards for myself and although I know I should make them more realistic, I feel that I should always be functioning on a high level.
Recently I was contacted by Nonda about their Zus Smart Car Finder and USB Car Charger. Before receiving it, I didn’t really have a clue how this was going to work in the real world. It sounded great on paper, but would I find my car in the middle of a muddy field of cars?
I found that the whole school thing crept up on me, and I was less than prepared. I had missed most of the first round of open days and some I’d missed completely! Applications were meant to be in by the beginning of January and I was already in November.

About three years ago now, I developed severe anxiety due to a traumatic experience in hospital. To this day, I still suffer with anxiety, but through retraining my thoughts, I don’t suffer anywhere near as badly as I did. My anxiety attacks these days are completely manageable and panic attacks are super rare as I am able to identify the symptoms and can quash them before they start to take hold. Here are my top tips on how I have dealt with my anxiety:
I came across Katy and Sian’s Linky and I thought what a great idea it is. I’ve decided to focus on positives from now on, so every week, I will be posting what made me happy in the week. It’s a nice way to lift mood and remember the good things.
So, my previous posts have very much been opinion posts. I thought I would lighten the mood of my blog and share with you the 5 things I love. Obviously my family are my one big love, so here are the other things that make me happy:
Gosh, all that seems so far away now. Since having a child, people’s attitudes seem to have changed towards me. I’m not able to attend a PR event on a days notice and I’m not able to drink until the early hours anymore. Even if I could, I don’t think my body could take it anymore.
