Cellular Positivity

This week I learned some science! Elizabeth Blackburn, the Nobel laureate was my teacher and she taught me all about the part of our chromosomes named telomeres. Now, I must put a little disclaimer in here – unfortunately, my science lesson was not in person, and was actually learned through Elizabeth’s [...]

Foods and Moods: Eat Yourself Happy

Since I have been on my health kick recently, and so had a particular interest in food, Sally recommended to me a recipe book called The Happy Kitchen by Rachel Kelly (who is also the author of a lovely book called Walking on Sunshine: 52 Small Steps to Happiness). The Happy [...]

Food for Thought

I want to talk about food. Now, I would consider myself a big eater. I am often baffled by the sheer volume of food I can fit into my stomach. Sometimes, however, I do things like have pizza and dough balls for lunch and then a huge Chinese takeaway for dinner [...]

The City of Angels: Lessons Learnt

I needed a tube of ointment. On prescription. I was finding LA daunting – big, brash and a far cry from my little home-town in the UK. Still, the plus would be everything was open 24 hours here and I’d have it in a jiffy. $140 later (and 4 minutes with [...]

Friends – The Key to Happiness

A couple of weeks ago I, and a group of my friends, took a trip to the Emerald Isle to celebrate one of us turning the big 4-0. We’ve known each other for nearly 30 years (I know what you’re thinking – how can that be possible? You don’t look like [...]

The Kindness of Karma

Bali. An island teeming with beauty. While I could write endlessly about the exquisite natural attractions I visited on my recent trip, I want to write to you all about the beauty I found at the very core of the island, the beauty that makes this island my happy place. The [...]

Me, Meditation and My Neti-Pot

As I stood in front of Mark, I felt weak and tired. So much so I had to sit down during our (what was intended to be) brief chat. With all his positivity, the last thing I wanted to tell him was that I was struggling with my health and wondering [...]

Opening Doors

‘As one door closes, another opens,’ my Dad always used to say.  Especially when I split up from a boyfriend (‘Plenty more fish in the sea’ was another favourite!). Recently I’ve had a number of doors closing and as such I’ve been pondering on how to deal with it at the [...]

My Perfect Place of Paradise

As I climbed out of the taxi my head ached, my chest hurt and my mind was spiralling out of control like a washing machine stuck on high spin unable to stop. I couldn’t get that horrid work email out of my thoughts and I could feel the obsessive thinking kicking [...]

Solving the Happiness Equation

I do love a good equation. It’s probably down to my science background, having studied Chemistry at university. It often helps to understand and explain complex things. Recently whilst looking on the Internet I came across Mo Gawdat, a Chief Business Officer for Google, who claims to have come up with [...]
