I have been doing a lot more self-care recently with having more free time to do so. My self-care has been focusing mainly on making self-improvements. For the past few weeks I have been improving on what I already know or have and it has been interesting to see how it has helped considering what … Continue reading Self Care Days
I have written about my relationship with the gym before (which you can read about here). I feel like I can now write a more up to date article about getting through my anxiety troubles at the gym. So basically, before I very first went to Australia I had been managing to keep up with … Continue reading Anxiety VS Gym
Walsh's Pyramid. The highest, free standing pyramid in the world. A natural phenomenon. It stands at roughly 922m high and is fairly popular amongst locals and tourists to hike up and today was the day I made it up to the top. I found out about Walsh's Pyramid whilst doing a web search of things … Continue reading Walshs Pyramid
I've been home now a few weeks now and it's given me time to see how much Australia has changed me. Before I left for Australia I was someone who struggled to leave the house without looking like someone who had just had an all day sesh in town, spent the night passed out by … Continue reading New Life Lessons
Yearling prep has now started! At the yard where I am working there is roughly 150 yearlings and we have about 40 to get ready for the Magic Millions sales in January at the Gold Coast.

When you move away from home or half way around the world it helps you realise who is always going to be there for you and who isn't. I've minimised my friendship circle in … Continue reading An Update From Australia!
So yesterday (15/09/2018) was the start of my weekend off and as I failed to sleep in and we were still without Wi-Fi I decided to take myself for a hike up one of the mountains at work. My work is situated in the Hunter Valley which is absolutely beautiful and I had my choice … Continue reading Hiking In The Valley!
So I’ve just finished a yoga session in my bedroom and oh it was definitely needed! My body feels so much more looser, supple and flexible. It is pretty obvious to me that I haven’t had a good yoga session since my move though but I’m hoping I’ll be able to get back on track … Continue reading Getting Back Into Yoga
I've been in Australia now for just over 2 weeks and even in that short period of time I've learnt some interesting and slightly eye opening things about myself. Value. When you suffer from a mental illness it can be hard to realise your self worth. My depression led me to believe that I am … Continue reading What I’ve Learnt Since Moving To Australia
For the past few evenings I’ve been able to go for about a 45minute run (roughly) after I have finished work and it’s strange to see how a different environment has a positive impact on my anxiety. I’ve had trouble running in public (you can read about it here). My anxiety gets the better of … Continue reading Running Free
