For many, it's exam season which means stress is running high and time is running out. I not long ago handed in my dissertation, which I am still so happy about, and although I don't feel it was perfect I am proud of the hard work I put in. I sacrificed a lot of time… Continue reading To Whoever Needs to Hear it…
If you're frequent user of social media you'll be no stranger to the negative comments and feelings of inadequacy that can come about through using it. A few people I follow have used the platform to expose some of the comments they receive on a daily basis, and the harmful effect it has had on… Continue reading Self-image – From a psychology students perspective.
First of all, a big sorry for the lack of posts on here! I think the festive period and the start of my dissertation got the better of me, but I've managed to organise my time...and now I'm back 😉 I was thinking about recognition and what gets others recognised, and it occurred to me… Continue reading Are We Wrongly Recognising?
Recently I've been thinking about my motivation towards university, as admittedly it's been a lot lower than what it usually is. Although this doesn't worry me, because I know my determination will see me through, it made me question why I feel the way I do. The other day on my Instagram I read a… Continue reading Live In the Now.
I think this is something we are all guilty of... It's so easy to open up Instagram and compare yourself to the first person that comes up on your feed. You may not even notice you're doing it, I think half the time this is something we do subconsciously, and then wonder why we don't… Continue reading Comparison – the thief of joy

BUT in the first few weeks, I felt so homesick that I seriously considered quitting uni altogether.… Continue reading How to Overcome Homesickness at Uni
One thing that I have learnt since I started taking my fitness seriously, is to never underestimate the importance of having a goal to focus on. Time after time I would aimlessly wander into the gym and do the same thing every day (cardio, of course) and wonder why I wasn't seeing the results that… Continue reading The importance of setting goals
What a fab month July has been (although slightly worrying that I'm halfway through my uni summer break already). I wish this weather will never end, as everyone is in such high spirits for once (so long as you don't mention the World cup!) I found some different goodies this month, so I hope there… Continue reading Foodie Finds – July 2018
Probably one of the most important blog posts that I've written, and I think this is something that needs to be said. Along with the fitness lifestyle comes the association that those who dedicate themselves to living this way, are self-centered, self-obsessed, and vain. Here's why this simply isn't the case. First of all, I… Continue reading We aren’t all self-obssesed…
Uni is 50% organisation and 50% hard work. If you manage to stay organised, and on top of essays, presentations, and exams...I can assure you, you will be fine! What with exams only a few weeks away for most uni's, I thought this post would be very relevant. It is crucial to stay organised, as there… Continue reading How to Stay Organised at Uni
