A photograph of a woman sitting in a garden looking into the distance - The Life Lessons I Thought I Would Know By Now - Mrs H's favourite things

When I was a young adult and I looked at people in their 30s or 40s, I always assumed that they had this game of life sussed. They were mature adults. Surely, they knew exactly what they were doing. Surely, they’d learnt the lessons of how to live a happy and contented life. I looked at them in awe and believed they all lived perfect lives. They seemed filled with wisdom and knowledge and a confidence I couldn’t imagine possessing.…

Is Your Shortness Of Breath Due To Age Or Asthma?

A black and white photograph of a man taking a deep breath and looking up to the sky - Is Your Shortness Of Breath Due To Age Or Asthma? - Mrs H's favourite things

This is a collaborative post. Most of us consider asthma as something you either have or not. It’s one of those conditions we assume will be prevalent at birth. And, while we may worry about this for our kids, we don’t often consider that we could suffer ourselves. In fact, if we experience shortness of breath, we often consider it just another symptom of age. In reality, though, that isn’t always the case. It isn’t unusual for adults to develop…

This is a collaborative post. Sleep is a massive, vital part of our health. Many people consider the ability to exercise and diet, maybe even to meditate as one of the vital underpinnings of health. While these habits and disciplines are absolutely beneficial, they would be nothing without sleep. Sleep is the thing that helps us stay sane, helps us face another day, and can refresh our entire mindset. You are a better person when you gain restful sleep. You…

Living With Depression: A Nervous Breakdown & A Diagnosis

A photograph of a woman with brown hair, wearing a stripey t-shirt and bright red lipstick - Living With Depression: Having A Nervous Breakdown & Being Given A Diagnosis - Mrs H's favourite things

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. It’s a week that is hugely important, as we still have such a long way to go before we’ve broken the stigma that surrounds mental ill health. Last year, I wrote a post for Mental Health Awareness Week claiming that I was going to start sharing my story of living with depression, beginning with my nervous breakdown and diagnosis. Yet, these posts never materialised. Writing your own tale of living with depression is…

A photograph of a woman wearing a t-shirt with the slogan "tres jolie" - Get Back Up Again - Recommitting To A Healthier Lifestyle - Mrs H's favourite things

At the beginning of January, I started working with a fabulous nutritionist called Lamorna. I signed up for her 12-week Nutrition for Life programme. I’m going to be 40 in September (I may have mentioned this a few times). And this year, I wanted to focus on becoming the healthiest version of myself that I can be. But I didn’t want to try a fad diet and I didn’t want to starve myself. Instead, I wanted to learn about how I could…
