How Chronic Illness Prepared Me For Lockdown.

wallflower


When lockdown started, I discussed with a fellow chronically ill BFF, as well as a stranger I connected with through the Penpowerment project, how this time has really echoed the times when we've been incredibly unwell. It's also highlighted how many able-bodied people have no idea that this is how chronically ill people live for much of their lives - on one hand it's baffling how ignorant people can be, but on the other hand, how can they know if they can't see it?

now studio yoga.



It's January, and you may have decided to take up a new form of exercise or to be kinder to your body.. if that's the case, you need to know that there's a new kid on the block in Bristol, and it's VERY lovely.

I've spoken about how much of an effect yoga has on me emotionally on here before (read my post about yoga brunch club) - I find it such a wonderful experience to think about and connect to my body in a different way that it has made me cry during practice many times in the past.

How I feel about my body has definitely improved over the last year or two, but I still have a strained relationship with food and exercise. I am trying my hardest to lean away from that into a kinder frame of mind, and things like this really help.

2020 and why I'm not looking back.



I posted about this on Instagram yesterday, but I have a bit more to say on the subject, which I've squirrelled away in my notebook. That post seemed to strike a chord with many of you, so maybe this will too. I wrote the following on New Year's Eve.

hearty vegan stew.



Don't worry pals, this isn't going to be one of those recipe posts with 40 paragraphs of my life experiences with beans - let's just jump right in. It isn't the prettiest, but it's so easy, and so so delicious.

sustainable swaps.



Like a lot of people currently, I'm painfully aware of the state of the world. The world is on fire and it feels like there's no way to stop it, and yet so many people in positions of power are claiming ignorance.. anyway, this isn't a political rant, this is just about the little changes that I've been making that are better for the environment, and ease my woes slightly. 

I've been thinking a lot about the things I use frequently which are actually incredibly wasteful. I've started gradually making a few changes in my life, and I thought they might be of use to you lovely humans.
