IS THERE HEADACHE RELIEF 3 YEARS AFTER A DAITH PIERCING?

There's no scientific proof that a daith piercing works to relieve migraines and chronic headache. I've had mine for three years and this is how mine has impacted on my headaches. #daith #piercing #headaches #migraines

CHRONIC HEADACHES

Daith piercing has become an alternative treatment for those who suffer from ongoing migraines. I don't think I'm a true migraine sufferer, but I'd endured ongoing, and often debilitating headaches for decades. I'd been taking pain relief for them in many forms for a long time and was beginning to wonder what impact that was having on my kidneys and liver - especially when a headache lasted for several days. Headaches were so much a part of my life that I even have a "Headache Art" Pinterest Board that I filled with pictures of how a headache "looked" in its various forms.

RESILIENCE - IT'S ALL ABOUT THE REBOUND

5 ways to rebound from life's setbacks with resilience. Move forward, don't look back, learn and laugh, and live life to the full. #resilience

WHAT DOES RESILIENCE MEAN TO YOU?

Today I'm writing about "R" in the List of More and the very first word that came to mind was Resilience, which in Latin means “to leap back” In other words, Resilience translates to being able to rebound after experiencing loss, or calamity, or hardship. The picture comes to mind of those children's toys called Weebles. They had a strong and steady foundation that allowed a Weeble to be tipped or knocked over and then recentre itself after each "hit".

WHY I'M CHOOSING TO BE UNBUSY IN RETIREMENT

Are you tired of hearing about how busy everyone is in retirement? Why not focus on becoming un-busy and become part of the unbusy and slow movements that more people are choosing every day? #slow #unbusy #retirement

BECOMING UNBUSY IN RETIREMENT

A while ago I was asked to contribute to a collaborative post on Keeping Busy in Retirement and I started thinking about all the things I'm doing to fill my days now that I'm not working. But, underneath that first impulse to prove I'm "busy, busy, busy" was a different desire - one that was saying "You know what? I don't want to be busy all the time, I don't want to fill every day with a multitude of planned events." My soul wants to be Un-Busy and it's when I become un-busy that I feel more centred and more at peace.

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE

If we were having coffee these are a few of the things I'd share from my life that happened in August. #midlife #ifwewerehavingcoffee

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE

If we were having coffee these are a few things I'd be sharing from August - we're heading towards the end of Winter and the reappearance of Spring (Yay!) so I'm ready to pack away the Winter woollies and get out the Spring florals. And because I always enjoy a good 'Taking Stock' blog post, I hope you'll humour me and sit a while as I share my news. There's nothing like a virtual cuppa and a chat, and I have lots to share from the last few weeks.
