      Thank you! I was thinking of wearing it on Christmas day with a jumper and tights. Because the material is thick, it’s surprisingly warm to wear. 🙂

    A lot of people take their health for granted these days…
    Hmm… I’ve never thought about instagram as a source of pressure for buying/showing of new things, but it’s so true… Yikes…

      When I first started on Instagram, I was paranoid about wearing the same skirt or top twice etc, incase people thought I didn’t have clothes. I think how ridiculous that is now!

      Thank you so much! I really believe it is different, and there’s no point trying to emulate exactly what another person eats or how they work out. xxx

    I’m okay thank you. Terrible at managing my time right now, but hopefully I can get myself back on track this weekend. Hope you’ve had a great week!

    Health is so important, im always reminded of that when i get sick. I like your holistic approach. Diet is probably the hardest for me as I love food. Got to find something that fits you and you enjoy, it really is a lifestyle choice. Agree with your advice on unprocessed foods, simple idea but hard to execute especially with bread like you said

    Picking things you can do for your health that are sustainable long term and that you enjoy I think are key to any holistic choices. knowing that getting off track is fine too i think is also important. 80/20 rule just remember to get right back on after. All about balance.

    Enjoyed this thanks Laura!

      Thank you for reading and for your comment Paolo!! I think it’s incredibly hard to have all-round health. Whilst my diet and exercise is good right now, I’m not sleeping well and that’s affecting my entire day.
      I agree with you, it’s about balance and trying your hardest I think to figure out which healthy foods you can eat happily. Like I love olives and salads with spinach, but hate raw tomatoes and not the biggest fan of kale. 🙂

    you can drink a glass a water and instantly insert a healthy lifestyle layer – I loved how you said this 🙂
    It is wonderful how you bring conscious awareness to every aspect of what brings health and well being. And you share honestly. I too have never set foot in a gym, have no excuse for it. Exercise is only one aspect of well being and we can choose different ways of getting it in. I like your emphasis on healthy relationships and embracing the discomforts as simple as walking on a different side of the street – makes a whole lot of difference.

      Thank you for your kind words! I think people think of health as just fitness and diet, but I do think it has to do with overall happiness, stress levels and a sense of contentment.

    Nice post girl! Am so happy that you’re really being organized and are serious about maintaining your health and lifestyle since it def is really important. I’m pretty strict with my diet and lifestyle but still need to work on my fitness and take it much more seriously. You’re def an inspiration for all the girls out there including me and I really hope that you keep following this healthy routine of yours ❤️ It’s always good to focus on yourself once in a awhile 🙂

    I enjoyed this post Laura, and like you, have a holistic approach to health. I fail miserably at looking after myself, and although I follow an almost solely plant based diet, I have not quite mastered the eating at regular meal times, and healthier sweet treats! Id love to hear any healthier cake recipes you may know! I couldn’t agree more with you about accepting ourselves however we are, and I would say that I have finally mastered this a few years back. Only took me 40 years haha. Its liberating!
