comfort and joy

‘I learned to be the guardian of my own heart,’ writes Bianca Barton on page 22 about the emotional leap she made when her marriage broke down. This issue is dedicated to tending to our hearts and navigating difficult emotions. UKCP therapist Alivia Rose tells us how to manage overwhelming feelings on page 44. ‘Emotions need to be expressed so they can pass,’ she explains. Columnist Vee Sey agrees on page 32. ‘You can’t eat your pain away. Junk food will not fill a void and sugar does not anaesthetise pain or grief. There is no comfort in comfort eating,’ she writes. On page 18, Rachel Dobson chats to Julia Bradbury about how she used walking as a form of therapy during IVF treatment. What tools can you employ to…

WAVES OF WELLNESS I loved your feature ‘Dive into sheer bliss’ (Spring). Diving isn’t just an exciting way enjoy ocean sea , it’s good for body and mind.

Deep breathing also builds stamina, boosts the immune system and clears the mind for better focus. Additionally, diving promotes emotional health and self-awareness – it’s an incredible pastime! Thanks for the article. I can’t wait to dive again.…

letter of gratitude

I’d like to thank… My brilliant sister, carer And best friend, Emma I wrote this poem just to say Thank you for making me smile each day For your one-of-a-kind humour, your unique wit For bringing me to tears of laughter until my sides split For helping clear away the fog For bringing clarity For when I am feeling lost For often maintaining my sanity For being so effortlessly creative and talented For encouraging me to always aim higher For setting such a beautifully high standard For being the person who I deeply admire For being there when I need to talk For when I feel overwhelmed For making things feel so much lighter For being my sister and my best friend This poem has become a little too sentimental So I will end on this There’s not much more for me to say Except thanks very much, sis! This month’s…
