The Pain of Hypermobility

2022-09-20T13:46:24+00:00September 7th, 2022|Heal Thyself|

Beyond the party tricks of being able to bend in ways that your peers cannot, hypermobility sucks for most people. By the time I was 13, I had already dislocated my left knee and experienced lock jaw. I was always in pain, only to be fobbed off and told it was growing pain because my joints hurt. What can you

Paralysed, spiralling, but (at least) I’m honest!

Honesty time. I’m stuck, I feel paralysed and I feel like I have zero control of the world around me, what’s happening to me and I am so angry. Loaded sentence, I know but I needed to get that out there. Speaking publicly about mental health is one of the things that I have been juggling from the yes to

Navigating triggers with complex PTSD

Unless you read this blog or you know the real person behind the positive facade that I have built, you most likely wouldn’t guess that I have complex post traumatic stress disorder. I am very high functioning and have developed lots of coping mechanisms, many of which are practiced in autopilot to ensure that I am steady all the time.

The origin story of my sexual abuse

Yes, you read that correctly. I have alluded to this before on this blog, but I haven’t really given the full story about it, or how it started. This is the tell-all some have been waiting for. I have enough material to write a book about this, and I am but today, it’s just going to be an article, detailing

Managing Anxiety

Stop on your way to work for 30 seconds and look around you. What do you see? The postman is out delivering mail, people are rushing past you on the busy street to get to work, Amazon delivering a midnight order of nappies, construction workers continue to toil on, a child is throwing a tantrum with a frustrated parent, cyclists

The Importance of Sleep

2021-06-15T05:07:22+00:00July 7th, 2016|• Reshare, Heal Thyself|

I've been seeing many entrepreneurs and business owners burning the midnight oil, night after night. I'm awake at some crazy hours (and my Twitter TL is flooded with you owls), but I somehow manage to get a solid eight hours of sleep (or sometimes a little more!) Not getting enough sleep for an extended period isn't something to be proud

Crash Diets don’t work; Lifestyle Changes do

2021-02-23T15:55:37+00:00February 14th, 2015|Heal Thyself|

Recently, I’ve embarked on a lifechanging diet. I feel great, but I’m surrounded by people saying that “diets don’t work” and I’m going to “end up putting all the weight back on” (and because I’m already pretty thin, I’ve got people asking me why on earth am I ‘dieting’ because I don’t need to lose weight), but what if it

Living with ADHD

2021-02-23T16:35:26+00:00December 27th, 2014|Heal Thyself|

Project and time management have always been a natural talent for me; I’ve never struggled with it, and I’ve excelled with projects despite my ADHD. Over the last couple of months, I’ve been noticing a slow decline in my productivity, and a scary decrease in my short term memory. It’s a frightful thing at 24 when you cannot remember details

Stages of Detoxification during a 30-day Juice Fast

2021-02-23T16:14:07+00:00October 3rd, 2013|Heal Thyself|

Detoxification happens at different levels during a juice fast. The first week is the hardest bit, and then everything is downhill from there. This is an estimation of how the body detoxes, but please note that no two humans were created equal, and this will differ in each person, since you have an interaction of medication, environment, past diets, health,

Juice Fasting 101

2021-02-23T16:14:02+00:00October 3rd, 2013|Heal Thyself|

Juice Fasting, or juice cleansing, has more benefits than you can imagine, and you can do it for as long as you want to, and it will still have great benefits. A 6 day juice fast is the shorter, more common length, whereas the extreme lengths can go until 60 days.  Juice fasting is one of the fastest ways to
