Autumn weekends filled with pottering and the seasonal abundance are my favourite. Last weekend we filled our bags at the farmers market (see it in my latest vlog) and lingered in the park.
A long time favourite of mine is Watercress Soup. It’s filled with flavour and light enough not to leave you drowsy all afternoon. In Hampshire we are blessed with watercress merely hours from the beds and I take full advantage.
I have spent the last few years being hugely inspired by the videos being shared on YouTube. While I make my own videos from time to time I didn’t feel I was truly participating on the platform and that began to bug me.
Monday is by far my favourite day of the week. I like to hit the ground running and tackle my most productive tasks on a Monday morning. There is little I do these days that isn’t accompanied by a podcast or two and while I prep for season two of my podcast here are my favorite Monday morning listens.
“Maybe it’s burn out?”
The words I hadn’t been able to form myself being gently suggested by a friend. Maybe, I said while waiting for the ground to swallow me as the failure I must surely be.
After months of working, creating, speaking, mentoring and hustling I felt dry, spent and ill equipped to deal with rebuilding my energy levels. I was raw and feeling emotionally spent coming out of the first six months of the year.
