Podcasts are great as they have an array of content to suit anyone from one of my favourites health podcasts ‘Feel Better, Live Well’ to a laugh out loud ‘ShagMarriedAnnoyed’ Download & get listening to help expound your mind, make you smile & whittle the time away.

A beautiful poem that rings fo true, a dear friend shared it with me & I wanted to share with you x
“And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.
“And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.
“And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed.”

Great ideas in this post. I love that poem at the end. It would be great if we all came out the other side of this stronger, if not physically, then spiritually or emotionally.
