Weekly Words 9th January

This year, one thing I want to happen is to practise more silence, and more listening. I don’t necessarily mean talking less (that’s unlikely to happen), but rather I want to experience more silence, and listen better. This world can feel so full of noise - TV, traffic, radio, intercoms, chatter. Being very [...]

Weekly Words 19th December

I see things that I look forward to in life such as birthdays, holidays and of course Christmas, as bubbles. I try so hard to make sure they don’t pop, doing everything in my power to protect them, that it causes me anxiety. This anxiety manifests in many ways, from OCD kicking in, which [...]

Weekly Words 12th December

As I write this blog, I’m listening to Taylor Swift. This is not unusual for me - I’m a big-time ‘Swiftie’, and listened to 42 hours of ‘Tay Tay’ in 2019 alone, so it’s fair to say I’m QUITE familiar with her catalogue. The music in my ears right now, though, is new [...]

Weekly Words 24th October

In a time when it can feel like the entire world has ground to a halt and that life is moving at a pace slower than a snail coated in superglue; it can be easy to forget life’s greatest virtue: patience. In life, it can always feel like you’re waiting for that good [...]

Weekly Words 17th October

‘Lockdown was difficult. Despite being extremely lucky in my circumstances – a roof over my head with family, a good job throughout the period, a new yoga habit – I could feel the restrictions impacting me and my mental health. There wasn’t a burning desire to be out and about, seeing throngs of [...]

Weekly Words 10th October

I’ve been thinking a lot about my anxiety recently. I look back with a smile on my face that no, the house didn’t burn down, I didn’t delete important work documents by accident, and nor did I die of that terrible incurable disease that had manifested only in my head. I smile because [...]

Weekly Words 3rd October

This week, we have a contribution from the lovely Ruth, a member of the Happynesshub HQ team! She’s written a little bit about something that made her pause, think, and smile recently; enjoy! ‘Last week I picked up my 18 month old son, Will, from nursery. He saw my husband and I waiting at [...]

Battling Busyness

I’ve been so busy recently Hubbers! I wrote a few weeks ago about all my various travels around the country. And, as an update, I have now fully returned to my London base (and back to my bed which I always sorely miss when I am away)… but the busyness continues. [...]
