I’m not fantastic at acquiring adequate sleep, so it is really one thing I have to be really conscious about as I experience the consequences when I will not.

That way, my thoughts can loosen up knowing I’ve obtained my to-do list sorted, somewhat than lying there with all the ideas of what I need to do heading spherical in my head!


Baking has usually been my go-to action to unwind. It truly is my favourite factor to do and it tends to make me genuinely delighted.

However, for the duration of lockdown I attempted to department out a bit and consider new issues. I did some embroidery, which I loved, and drawing is something else I have generally liked.

I discover it really relaxing to do something in the evening that would not entail the Tv.

Cooking is rather distinctive to baking as it is really less precise and you can experiment much more. There’s anything so fulfilling about stumbling throughout a new food that you like.


This is a little something else I have to seriously work on, as I can get sidetracked by lifestyle a lot.

I enjoy shelling out time exterior, but dwelling in London can go away you craving the countryside. I consider to go on lots of walks and get outdoors to inexperienced house when I can.

I generally really feel so considerably superior when I’ve performed some exercise and experienced some fresh new air.


I’ve gone from a truly occupied occupation as a trainer to doing the job at dwelling alone in my kitchen, so remaining social is definitely crucial.

I routinely communicate to my pals and family above textual content and WhatsApp. My mum is my go-to human being to phone and chat to about anything.

I also appreciate voice notes for when you have not acquired time for a phone contact, but acquiring meet up with-ups in the diary is seriously significant. Scheduling walks and dinners with pals retains my spirits up.
