Day 13 of 31 Days of Wellbeing... For this day, I am going to choose an activity which I personally desperately need right now... I normally force myself to stay awake until my 'usual bedtime', but sometimes, it pays off to ignore the routine and get some extra zzz's. It is a horrible feeling when you … Continue reading 31 Days of Wellbeing: Day 13

I'd say my 'funniest' moment when I … Continue reading Seeing humour

I could go on but it gets quite embarrassing to list these trivialities because I should consider myself so so … Continue reading Boost of the Day
