Finding your passion isn’t as easy as it sounds… or at least not as easy as we are lead to believe as children. As a teenager I thought it would just land in my lap, as if my passion were something external just waiting for the right time to land. Then, as got a little older and time got a little more crowded with obligations, panic began to set in and slowly but surely I began to feel like I had missed the boat. Queue feelings of inadequacy, regret, and a lost sense of self.

Getting your mind and body in better shape simply means moving a little more and eating a little better. We're bombarded with ads that tell us we need the latest technology in order to reach our health targets. In actual fact, health is not a destination, it's a way of living... and it doesn't need to cost the earth.

Introverts get a bad wrap. Not the sort of prejudice that brings uprising (which wouldn't happen anyway... it's against the very nature of being introverted), but the quiet, deep-seeded prejudice that comes from a long history of being misunderstood and misrepresented. For as long as I can remember I have been told I'm shy, passive, weak, moody, and all-around not the life of the party. But maybe I don't want to be at your party... or any party for that matter. Maybe I want to be at home with my cat reading a book and eating grapes. Or maybe I want to be sipping coffee with a good friend, talking about the meaning of existence. Or maybe, just maybe, I want to be dancing my ass off at a party but as soon as it comes to socialising or meeting someone new I'd like to call it quits and get out of there as quickly as my legs will take me. Maybe I just charge differently to you, or maybe you're like me and want to set the record straight for the introverts of the world. Either way, this post is for you.

Recently I've been getting comments from people saying that eating a plant-based diet takes time to prepare and cook and is something of a luxury. Well, I'm here to tell you that vegan food is simple, quick, and easy to prepare and can take as little as 3 minutes to get from fridge to plate (and that doesn't even include raw meals that take no time at all).

Life is a balancing act. Some days I feel like superwoman, some I feel like a sloth. Sometimes we go through hurt and disappointment, other times life is a series of elation. Sometimes we're fuelled with energy and light, sometimes all we need is a foot rub and Netflix binge. And although life is inevitably filled with ups and downs, keeping an eye on your priorities and making sure your overall health and wellbeing are taken care of means that the bumps in the road are smaller, shorter, and more easily managed.
