Time to Talk

4th of February is Time to Talk Day organised by Time to Change to counteract the stigma which unfortunately still surrounds mental illness. But that shouldn’t just be reserved for one day a year.

Holiday Reflections

Holiday Reflections

Why do holidays always pass so quickly? I’ve just returned from a trip to Indonesia, so I thought I’d share some general thoughts on my first trip outside of Europe.
