Keep calm and commute…

As it’s the first day of the commuting week I thought I would share my tips for staying chilled on your travels! Your commute can be a very stressful part of the day. In my particular part of the world we have a notorious “car park” masquerading as a motorway, so I know just what […]

Emotional eating…

Dieting and overeating are the same thing. A bold statement I know, but if you think about it often one of these polar opposites replaces the other; and the ultimate reason for doing both is control.  You’re simply trying to control your emotions, through food (and drink or whatever), rather than addressing them.
