5 Feel Good Tips

This year I’ve really tried to focus on feeling better about myself. I’d like to share with you a few things that have helped.

  1. Becoming veggie – At the start of the year I tried Veganuary, and failed miserably. I just missed eggs and chocolate too much! However, what I didn’t miss was meat. On March 1st I cut meat out of my diet. I’ve been eating more vegetables, trying different things and I feel much leaner.
  2. Mess is stress – I’ve decluttered my wardrobe, shelves and bookcase giving a lot to charity. At work I cleaned out my drawers and desk. It’s amazing what you hoard that has absolutely no use. Having a clear space to work and live also clears your head.
  3. Fitness classes – The good old gym membership that was coming out of my bank every month and not getting used has started to get used. Going to yoga and cardio & core classes every week means less time munching and slobbing on the couch and a full hour without mobile phone interruptions to just focus on myself.
  4. Banish reality TV – Instead of watching trashy tele (sorry Geordie Shore) watch something of substance. And if you can’t find anything of substance, don’t watch it at all! Bake something, go for a walk, call a friend, read a book, listen to music. Over the years I’ve been addicted to Brendan’s tash in Hollyoaks, tashin’ on in G Shore and salty potatoes in TOWIE and since giving it up I’ve not looked back. My spare time is now much more enjoyable.unnamed (33)
  5. Walking – With a desk job it becomes the norm to sit in the same spot all day long and not take a lunch-break. Now every lunchtime, if it isn’t raining too badly and I don’t have any meetings, I take a 40 minute walk. It’s a good bit of exercise slotted into the day and it gives you a much needed break from the computer screen.

Let me know if you have any tips to feeling good, would be great to hear from you!
