Wow, how the world has changed since my last blog post.
Social distancing and self isolation are phrases that have unwittingly entered my daily vocabulary and our only social plans are via Skype.
Adventures are on hold and the only allowable reasons for leaving the house is for essential supplies.
We’ve all got our own individual ways of getting through – and there are some really fantastic articles featuring ideas for what you can get up to while in lockdown – but I’ve personally found keeping a diary super helpful, as emotions can be all over the place, so it can be good to untangle your thoughts on paper.
We’ve also been keeping a ‘post-lockdown’ wish-list of adventures, together as a household, with friends and with family. And so I thought I’d share just a few of those things with you!
I have often spoken about my issues with IBS and my subsequent appreciation for probiotics, as a means of keeping my symptoms at bay. In the quest for optimum health, I found the probiotic brand Probio7 – a great product range of quality probiotics.
Recently, the brand has launched Intiflor, which I was lucky enough to have been sent by the Probio7 team. Intiflor not only supports gut health, but is specifically tailored to promote intimate female health, ie. urinary tract infections, which are so common for many women (and not spoken about enough, in my opinion).
Since I posted about my experience at kaliyoga last year, I’ve had an influx of intrigued messages regarding what a ‘yoga retreat’ consists of…
Do you have to go with someone else?
Do you have to be a super fit, flexible and twice-weekly class yogi?
Will I get hungry?
Or will I have to sneak in food?
Regardless of how honest, decent and trustworthy people we are, at times, it’s very easy to bend the truth slightly and slip out a little white lie.
Most of us learn through our parents, who may have told us that carrots made you see in the dark so we’d eat our vegetables, or that Father Christmas would reconsider our new bicycle if we misbehaved.
White lies are an easy way out of a potential row, someone thinking slightly less of you, causing conflict or making a situation unpleasant.
They keep the peace and as long as they’re not used too frequently, are totally harmless and innocent.
