The End of Woo Woo

The End of Woo Woo

Woohoo! Thank you for visiting my blog! Subscribe to my newsletter for more sunshine and healing in your inbox. Thanks for visiting! Katie xx  I’ve been incredibly guilty in the past of apologising for being interested in alternative therapies and things that are a little bit ‘woo woo’. I asked you all on Facebook one night […read more]

The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Manifesto

The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Manifesto

  I thought is was about time I created a manifesto for this website and for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I’ve been meaning to bring this to you for so long, but it’s been on my wall for a while now and every time I look at it, I feel strong, powerful and full of universal […read more]

The Benefits of Body Brushing

The Benefits of Body Brushing

  It’s official my dears- I have a new love! The benefits of dry body brushing have won me over. I’ve been incredibly curious about body brushing for a long time, but for whatever reason have never gotten round to really trying it. It’s incredibly effective and I have to say I would feel ‘off’ […read more]

Getting through relapse...

Getting through relapse…

  The number 1 question I always get asked? – “Do you have tips on getting through relapse?”, “How can I manage all these set-backs?” I’m sure because the word ‘relapse’ was in the title that many of your thought I this article would just be speaking about CFS, right? Well, I wanted to share […read more]

{CFS} When Will it End?

{CFS} When Will it End?

  Warning: this post is probably going to annoy the life out of you. You want it and you thought you could see it a few weeks ago, but now you’re completely disorientated and you know that that finish line has moved away. You feel lost, dark, dense and like there’s no way you’ll ever […read more]

What is the Difference Between CFS and Fibromyalgia?

What is the Difference Between CFS and Fibromyalgia?

  CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) and Fibromyalgia always seem to stand together under the same umbrella. There was a point during my recover when I thought that my CFS might have moved into Fibromyalgia, but after having investigated, I knew this probably wasn’t the case. Image taken from here So, what is the major difference […read more]

Do I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

Do I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

  In our hectic lives these days, I often hear people say that they are ‘chronically fatigued’, or they know someone who is. While I try to withhold judgement (and try not to put them in this blogpost!), I often wince when I hear these words. Obviously, I know that they might be spending days, […read more]

Are You Sabotaging Your Own Healing?

Are You Sabotaging Your Own Healing?

  I just had to put these thoughts together for you in a little audio file after a good friend of mine made a comment recently about people with CFS who enquire about alternative treatments. The concept of sabotaging our own healing is such a funny concept- why wouldn’t we want to get better or […read more]

The BIG Question: What's Stopping You?

The BIG Question: What’s Stopping You?

Be completely honest with yourself. Forget about CFS for a moment (really!) and just concentrate on you. What are those big, completely bonkers, unbelievably insane, but juicy goals you have for yourself? (Notice I’m using ‘have’, not ‘had’) Image taken from here Do you think that it’s all over because you’re ill? Have you given […read more]

{AUDIO} Redefining Success

{AUDIO} Redefining Success

  As I’ll explain in my latest Soundcloud audio recording (love doing these for you!), my world is filled with a lot of ‘career’ talk at the moment, and it seems as though a lot of people are going through job/work-based transitions. Artwork taken from here The word ‘success’ has never really sat comfortably with […read more]

It's ok, my dear...

It’s ok, my dear…

It’s ok. It’s ok to just go to yoga because you want to move your body, not because you’re looking for spiritual ‘ah-ha’s. It’s ok to enjoy your job (yes, really) and not be swept up in the need to change it. It’s ok to be like your parents. It’s ok to procrastinate sometimes. Maybe […read more]

I Don't Get It Right All The Time...

I Don’t Get It Right All The Time…

  I don’t get it right all the time. I would love to be one of those people who has Instagram-worthy meals three times a day, but I’m not. Sometimes at lunch, I just have to run into the supermarket and buy whatever’s there that has the least amount of preservatives and gunk in it. […read more]
