HEALTHY HORMONES: A DELICATE BALANCE

Maybe it's my age, maybe it's becoming a mum, or maybe it's just that I now mostly talk to other mums... Whichever one, it has got me thinking a lot about hormones recently and how much they can control/take over/be the bane (delete as appropriate) of women's lives. I know hormones…

POST VIRAL

As lockdown starts to lift, how are you feeling? Excited at new possibilities, relieved to get back to normal, uncomfortable with how to be and behave in the 'new normal', or terrified of the hostile world you have been avoiding for so long now? Has lockdown been torture for you, has…

Sleep in the time of lockdown

Happy New Year! I hope you had a lovely Christmas and didn't put too much pressure on yourself. I embraced the 'less than perfect' Christmas philosophy (see my previous blog Gratitude & The Functional Family to see what I'm talking about) and actually enjoyed it a lot more. I still woke…
