    Overwhelm in witchcraft

    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). But that soon moved me into witchcraft when I started learning to be a psychic. Though that didn’t last, I am thankful for the path it got me travelling down.…

    Building a routine for mental health

    I have to be honest, I am a creature of habit and I love when I know where I am and what is happening. Building a routine for mental health has been such an incredible part of my dealing with my illnesses. So lets talk about it and hopefully help one another. I have struggled with chronic depression and generalised anxiety disorder for most of my life. This has made living my life extremely challenging and has caused me to struggle with making friends, living away from home, even working. They are one of the main reasons I cannot work, and honestly when I stopped trying to work my mental…

    Spread kindness like glitter

    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? Have you ever used glitter? It will literally go everywhere, and I mean everywhere, you will be finding glitter all over your house. Even in room you didn’t go into! So when I say spread Kindness like glitter, I mean we should spread it everywhere even to places we didn’t think about. Show it wherever you go, be kind and think of others words we say and things we do matter. I always try to…

    Rest is Self Care

    I think so many of us, disabled or not, think that rest is wasting time or not being productive enough. I felt the same for a long time, but I have found rethinking it as rest is self care really helps stop me feeling guilty. If you follow me on Instagram, you will know that just yesterday was a bad fatigue flare day. I had also been feeling rubbish for a few days before so I knew that something was coming. I spent most of the day in bed, drowsily watching a lot of videos while cuddling my favourite bear and my dog snoring on me. In the past I…

    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. I recently watched a wonderful video on It’s a Charming Life, where Lyndsey shared her struggles with SAD. Seasonal Affective Disorder is a form of depression that comes seasonally. This time of year there is less sunlight, and this very much affects the chemistry of the brain. This got me thinking of how we can all take a leaf out of Lyndsey’s book and foster cosiness into our everyday life. I guess it would fit into living a Hygge…

    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. I was good, I paced and managed a little yoga, before going online and getting caught up with emails. I was being good, but my husband, who has epilepsy, was not. No Lee was over at our storage container, we…

    5 ways to support your favourite content creators

    I was talking to my aunt not too long back about my YouTube channel, she admitted she didn’t subscribe because she thought she had to pay. This inspired me to try and help people to understand. Here are 5 ways to support your favourite content creators. What is a content creator? A content creator is someone who makes videos, articles, blog posts, anything that we read or watch. They can be YouTubers, personal bloggers, journalists… all of these things and do it either for work or for a hobby, like I do. Many of us make content that we think up for ourselves based on our hobbies, interests and lives.…

    Disabled community stop doing this in 2021

    I think I can safely say you are not alone in doing these things, I am as guilty of it as you are. But disabled community stop doing this in 2021 please? Can we move forward with a collective agreement to try and not do these things? I think we are all guilty of feeling like a burden, of feeling guilt or worrying too much what other people think. It is not something we do alone, but these things are what we all do as a community. I hate apologising when I have done nothing wrong, or not using my walking stick because I feel embarrassed or whatever. So for…

    Goodbye 2020

    I think a lot of us are happy to be saying goodbye to 2020 this week. It has been such a crazy year for the human race, but today I want to talk about how my life changed. So much happened for me personally this year so lets chat. I started out this year very happy and settled, we had been living in our home for nine years and loved it. The problem was my husband worked six days a week and then had three days off, he was working just to pay for the house. He was struggling with fatigue and we wanted to find a way to get…
