After a year of lockdowns, uncertainty, and madness, I’m sharing eight healthy habits I have incorporated into my life that have really changed me and improved my mindset.
With greater self-awareness and self-empowerment, we can become the master of our mind and feel happy and inspired no matter what life throws at us. The Happiness Planner, and the materials it comes with, has got me strategically planning my entire life. And I’m talking big life goals, long-term plans, hobbies, and making more time for the things that matter most to me. I know it sounds like a simple concept, but can you honestly say you’ve used a planner to actually plan happiness into your daily routine?
My mum. She would go to the ends of the Earth for me, and I would do the exact same for her. I have been taught some valuable life lessons from my mum because when you’re raised by a strong, loving, inspiring woman, there is no doubt that these things will, or already have happened to you.

A platform where I can share with you what I have learnt over the years in the most honest, transparent, and vulnerable way - it’s about time I get super personal with you. I would love nothing more than for you to take this journey with me and discover how you can grow through what you go through and become the conscious creator of your life.

It’s time to appreciate myself in the same ways I appreciate everyone else. I am changing in a way that lets the world know that I am enough. I am a strong, intelligent, kind, independent, and caring woman but most importantly, I am me.
You’ve taught me that no matter what I, or others, go through, whether it’s a mental illness, being bullied at school, self harming, having a substance abuse issue or an eating disorder, not to be afraid to ask for help. You helped me save my own life, and I will always be extremely thankful.
How do we measure the time we have spent in high school? At the start, we measured it in class periods, only dreaming of the day of eventual freedom. As the days and weeks passed, we measure it in terms, and later in years as we moved from being the babies of the school to turning into right typical teenagers who thought they had it all figured out. By the time we reached our senior year, we were prepared to take over the S6 common room and “rule the school”! And now here we stand. Our rule is over, and it is now up to the class of 2016 to step into our shoes and take over the reigns. I know now that my time will be measured in a much different way...
