Dumpton Gap

Living in London, we’re fortunate to have access to beautiful green spaces within fairly easy reach – this is probably my favourite place ever and this spot is a new discovery. But every now and then though, I get an urge to stare in to the horizon and tap in to the immeasurable sense of peace that we feel around water, or what the marine biologist and author of Blue Mind, Wallace J Nichols calls in his book about the physical and psychological benefits of water, my “blue mind”. Heading to the sea is a chance to escape the hyper-connected, over-stimulated state of modern day city life, and I am ALL IN.

You can buy self care planners and self care temporary tattoos ; the whole self care industry is worth a whopping $11 billion dollars and there are 30million #selfcare posts on Instagram. The reality is though, the term ‘self care’ is a loaded one; it looks different for everyone, depending on circumstances, personality and overall health. It might come in the form of a single downward dog or a warm cup of tea whilst bathing the kids; a minute to stretch your neck and shoulders out after a particularly long feed, or some deep breaths while you’re hanging out the washing.

Maybe I’m getting old but it seems the more years that go by, the more I enjoy celebrating people and moments. Celebrations bring joy, connection and ritual, and help us raise up those that we love and allow us to see them for one whole day. It’s a special thing. And I know, I know. Birthdays can equal stress and stuff and bulging black bin bags and unwanted gifts and leftover stale sandwiches but I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way.
