In the past 15 months I’ve discovered mindfulness and it’s helped me focus more on well-being. With that objective in mind, I’ve explored apps, YouTube channels and websites, which offer techniques to relax and feel better. I’ve picked my top four: Calm, DOYOUYOGA, Yoga with Adriene, and Fitbit.
I’m an eye-witness of the Borough Market and London Bridge attack, which happened on Saturday 3 June 2017. The event has affected me greatly in the last three months and it’s made me think a lot about traumatic experiences in general and how they can dramatically impact one’s life. Mental health is an important topic for me and I’ve decided to share my story and how it’s been to deal with the aftermath of the attack for me.
For the last couple of months, I’ve had a different breakfast than my usual one: I’ve tried overnight soaked oat. Usually I have bread with butter and cheese (the French way). But by 10:30am – 11am I get very hungry and by 12pm I desperately need to have some lunch. I’m also easily subject to energy fluctuations if I don’t have food regularly. I noticed in the last couple of years that I felt very weak when having a late lunch.
A couple of weeks ago, I heard about Coconut Oil for the first time when I watched a video of Victoria Beckham who mentioned that coconut oil was one of her essential beauty products. I started reading about it, and opening my eyes (really) in beauty and food stores. It turns out that coconut oil is everywhere.
