Two months ago I started posting about an Esther Hicks track called "everything is always working out for me" on YouTube. Since the day I started posting about it, my life has completely changed. A little over two months ago I was miserable, constantly exhausted, unhealthy, demotivated, felt like the world was against me. This track made me change my mindset and the knock on effect has been incredible. I got the job I wanted and I love it. I moved to London. I found a flat in Camden with an new flat mate who is an awesome girl. I made new friends. Opportunities threw themselves at me. I am the happiest I have probably ever been. I am truly living a life where everything is always working out for me, and I seriously believe as long as I continue believing that, everything will continue to do so. I took a little break from Instagram to focus on the move and the new position, and now I've settled in a bit more feel like I can dedicate my time to this again, and hopefully churn some more blogs out soon. Big love! πŸ’š

There is so much love to both receive and give in this world. πŸ’š One of the great successes of the human race is our ability to love and empathise. We have succeeded because we help each other, support each other and create communities. We help people we've never met, who's names we don't know. πŸ‘¬πŸ‘«πŸ‘­ We help creatures that aren't the same species as us. πŸ―πŸ’πŸΌ We help living things that aren't even in the same Kingdom. 🌳🌲🌿 Our love can extend as far and wide as we choose and there are 7 billion other people on this planet who have the ability to receive it and give it too. 🌍 There is great love here for you; have your eyes open to see it, heart open to receive it, and most importantly give love yourself and you will attract it.. Happy Friday folks! β€οΈπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ

Really garlicky tomato herby spaghetti with nutritional yeast and some miso on top. Treated myself to a bit of olive oil on it! Generally try to avoid adding oil to my food but sometimes it's such a yummy addition. πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ’š

Have goals. ALWAYS have goals. But don't have goals so high, so fast, that you can't keep them and inevitably fail. It will knock your confidence and discourage you from trying again in the future. Baby steps, baby steps. πŸ‘£βœ¨

I made pasta in a blue cheese sauce the other day! It tasted so good! Has anyone else tried the blue cheese style from Sheese? I got it on offer in Holland & Barrat at the weekend. Perfection! β˜ΊοΈπŸ§€

If you don't look after yourself, how can you look after others? If you don't love yourself, how can you love someone else? If you don't serve yourself, how can you expect the universe to serve you? Look after yourself first. Everything else will follow after. ✨

I had an epic meal at @veganhippo in Soho, London, on Wednesday evening. πŸ”Pulled jackfruit burger with cheeze, kale crisps and a soy latte on the side. The burger was unreal, so much flavour and the texture of the pulled jackfruit was on point! πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ The staff were friendly and there was an eclectic selection of music playing (Simon & Garfunkel / an entire Robbie Williams album). Plus, the entire meal came in at under a tenner! What's not to like? Vegans of London, non-vegans of London, and all visitors to London (vegan or not) go give this place a try. Cheap, cheerful and delicious! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ˜»

Taking good care of yourself is the most important thing you can do. Eat well, exercise, practice mindfulness to reduce stress, repeat affirmations to yourself everyday, sleep enough every night and socialise whenever possible. And not to forget, pamper and treat yourself sometimes too! You'll find yourself much happier and more productive in all areas of your life. πŸ’š

🚨Midnight snack alert!🚨 I got peckish last night as I was up a little late and threw this together as a high protein, filling little snack. I call it "pizza ballz" πŸ˜πŸ•πŸ…πŸ§€ V-bites meatless balls topped with low fat marinara sauce, Sainsbury's cheddar style cheeze and a sprinkling of dried oregano and basil. It tastes like a meatball pizza! Just without the carby base! 356 kcal and 21g of protein. I needed that after the day I had, lots and lots of walking! πŸ‘£ What's your go to midnight snack? πŸ‘‡πŸΌ

Many of us experience depression. πŸŒ‘Sometimes it's based on circumstance, sometimes we're not entirely sure of the cause. Regardless, when you are in that state, there is a sense of hopelessness and the feeling that there's no way out. As difficult as it is, try to have faith that it's temporary; it's always darkest before the dawn. 🌀 Keep your eyes open for opportunities to feel like things are working out for you and never be afraid to reach out to those around you for support. 🀝 If any of you ever want someone to talk to and feel like you don't have anyone... You can talk to me! I'm always open to listen, help and give advice to anyone who needs it, whatever the situation. πŸ—£πŸ‘±πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Whatever you do, don't lose hope, it's okay, help is on the way. ✨

Meditation. ✨ Meditation is a practice that I've always found difficult. My brain goes at 100 miles per hour and I have a pretty short attention span, but the benefits of it are undoubtable. Of late I've been doing breathing exercises using my Fitbit which last about 5 minutes, and using this as meditation practice. On every breath in I envisage gold energy flowing into me; pure light, perfection, happiness, untainted and free. And with every breath out I envisage a black gust of energy flowing out of me; releasing any negativity, tension, anxiety and unhappiness. It's a really wonderful way to relax and reset your mind if you're feeling a little stressed, and it's a great way to get ready to go to sleep at night too. πŸŒ™β­οΈ

Not everything gives me a big cheesy grin on my face, but a soy hot chocolate from @pretamangeruk sure does! πŸ˜πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ« Pret is my fave coffee chain because they treat their staff fairly, help the homeless, pay their taxes, are committed to offering great vegan and vegetarian options, and last but not least, they make a bangin' hot choc. πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ What's your favourite coffee shop and why? 😊

Your goals shouldn’t only extend to yourself, and as selfless as that sounds, it is also about YOU. ☝🏼 Remember that episode of Friends where Phoebe and Joey argue over whether there’s such a thing as a truly β€œselfless good deed”? Well, they discovered that really, there isn’t one - and that’s okay! πŸ˜„ Ultimately, making other people feel good will make you feel good. Spread positivity, compliment the people around you and let people know the value of who they are. Tell them you appreciate them, you love them and you’re grateful to have them in your life. They will reap the benefits, and you will too. πŸ’šβœ¨

Good food and good rest are so so so important to physical and mental wellbeing. 🍴😴 Take steps to ensure that you're sleeping enough. When I can, I turn my phone to airplane mode at 9-10pm, put it on charge on my desk and then get into bed and wind down with my book or an easy-watching TV show like Friends, or do a breathing exercise with my Fitbit. I also take a magnesium supplement before I sleep and have really noticed that I sleep much deeper since I started that! Food; it's a no brainer. Keep it colourful, keep it ethical, keep it fruits and veggies and nuts and seeds and leaves and grains and roots, and make sure that you ENJOY it! Make it flavourful and delicious with herbs and spices and garlic. You'll feel better than you ever even thought you could! 🍏🌢🍎πŸ₯”πŸπŸ πŸŠπŸŒ°πŸ‹πŸ₯œπŸŒπŸ…πŸ‰πŸ†πŸ‡πŸ₯’πŸ“πŸ₯•πŸˆπŸŒ½πŸ’πŸ₯‘πŸ‘πŸ₯πŸπŸƒ I'm hungry now!
