I am loving my spiritual journey, especially now I know what kind of witch I am and can focus my studies. But recently I have been feeling like I have too much to learn and do and it has been a lot! So I thought we could take some time to talk about overwhelm in witchcraft. When I started on this journey, I was very much based in spirituality, learning yoga, meditation and mindfulness (hence the name of this blog)….

After seeing someone bullying on Twitter, I was inspired to think more about kindness. I have spoken a lot about it here on the blog and YouTube but can we please spread kindness like glitter?

Fostering cosiness for mental health

Cosiness is something that feels good, just picturing it in your mind, makes you feel safe. Fostering cosiness for mental health is so important during these cold and drab winter months.

When pacing goes wrong

When pacing goes wrong

I think we have all had times when pacing goes wrong and end up doing so much more than you meant. It is part of living with chronic illnesses that cause fatigue, and so is the guilt! So I thought it was time we talk about this. Monday was a good day, they are rare and usually I take my time and do little jobs that are usually too much.

Getting back to exercise

Getting back to exercise

Exercise has been important to me for many years now and for a long time I did yoga every day. Looking after my joints and muscles helps my pain and protects my hypermobile joints. But with increased fatigue, and moving house that changed and getting back to exercise has become a priority.

Moving house is always stressful and difficult, even if you don’t have chronic illnesses it can take it’s toll.
