January 2021 Reading Wrap Up

One of the main things I found hugely beneficial for my mental health last year was reading. It was a chance to escape not only from the crap that was going on in the world, but also my own thoughts too. While listening to music and watching box sets was a great way to relax… Continue reading January 2021 Reading Wrap Up

The Therapy Diaries 7 | High Intensity CBT

It’s hard to believe I’m on part seven of my Therapy Diaries series. Take from that what you will - I’ve had A LOT of therapy. Anyway, at the present time, this is going to be the last in the series! During my last instalment, we actually rewound a few years and went back to… Continue reading The Therapy Diaries 7 | High Intensity CBT

Craft Gin Club Subscription Box Review | January 2021

As of January 2021, I will have been with Craft Gin Club for a whole year. While I didn’t start my reviews until May last year, I’ve received a fabulous array of craft gin and snacks over the last few months. January’s box was a welcome arrival after the Christmas comedown, and they certainly started… Continue reading Craft Gin Club Subscription Box Review | January 2021

Reaching Out to Loved Ones During Lockdown | Brew Monday 2021

The third January of every month is classed as Blue Monday - statistically, the most depressing day of the year. General reasons for that could be because we’re all a bit down following the Christmas festivities, no one has any money following Christmas and the long run up to payday, and the weather is a… Continue reading Reaching Out to Loved Ones During Lockdown | Brew Monday 2021

My Goals for 2021

I debated whether or not to put together some goals for 2021. Not only did most of us end up writing off our goals for 2020, but we entered the new year with such uncertainty behind it (although as I write this, the UK is set for ANOTHER national lockdown at midnight), so it didn’t… Continue reading My Goals for 2021

December 2020 Wrap Up

So here it is, my final wrap up of the absolute piece of crap that was 2020. I’ll be honest, again, not much happened given the restrictions that we were under (thankfully we were only tier 2, now tier 3), so I feel this will be a rather short wrap up. I’m honestly so done… Continue reading December 2020 Wrap Up

Regular readers will know for the last few of these twice yearly posts, it’s been 6 Reads in 6 Months - however, with my anxiety taking a bit more of a front seat given the recent events, I’ve certainly been working my way through my bookcase a lot quicker than usual.
