Endings and beginnings of self care

Month by month – January ‘Eating the Right Foods Mindfully’. Bought book after skim reading library book ordered after reading magazine article when in The Gambia. Certainly takes the pressure off trying to do all ‘good’ things at once. Looking forward to February ‘Managing Stress’. I have certainly benefited from ‘friends/contacts free’ time which the lingering cold virus really helped me to do. Having daily walk to local supermarket selling quality produce has assisted the mindful eating and thankfully I love cooking. Will keep you posted.

    1. Thanks Sue. I trained as a midwife after nurse training and it was more than useful in my Health Visiting practice. I can identify with a lot of the situations and I think it all the characters are great especially as they are based on a true story. The nurturing continues Sue 🙂
