We live in a world which is consumed by social media, therefore you know a lot about what is going on in other people’s lives. For some reason, people have come to believe that this gives them a right to an opinion on everything.
We also live in a world that thinks women should have a man, a job, a wedding and their first child before they are 30. Well guess what, I’m calling bullshit on the lot.
Two years ago I started planning my meals and discovered batch cooking and I’m not exaggerating when I say it changed my life! It’s so easy to fall into the ‘I’ll get something on the way home’ trap, but I urge you, if it works for you then start both planning and batch cooking. However, if you need a bit more convincing then I have listed some benefits below that are too hard to ignore!
Over this lockdown period I have been trying my best to support small businesses that I’ve come across online. It’s been so amazing to see lots of people starting up on their own and turning passions into businesses during this time, it’s so inspiring.
So I’ve seen a few people do pieces like this and I thought it was a really nice idea. As said in my last blog, I think it’s really important to reflect, not just at the moment but also in normal circumstances. It lets you see what you have learned and how far you have come.
So as lockdown (hopefully) comes to an end soon, I’ve been thinking a lot about the whole experience, what it’s taught me and also what I can’t wait to see the back of. 2020 is a year that many of us will never forget as this is unlike anything we have ever experienced, so I think it’s important to remember it and take note of its lessons.
I’ve contemplated writing this blog for a while, as it’s a very personal one. However, this is a topic that I get asked about a lot so if it can help or encourage even one person then it’s worth it. This piece is a bit longer than my others but it’s an important topic and I’m very passionate about it, so I hope you enjoy.
Over the past two years I have experienced a massive change in mindset which has changed my life completely. I have created this blog to document my ramblings about how it happened and other snippets from my life.
