08/03/19 International Womens Day
Yesterday I was reminded of one of the amazing women in my family, my Great Granny Winifred.
Around 1905, aged just 20 she travelled to India alone, fell in love and married an Indian man....all of which were highly frowned upon at the time!
She lived to be 98 and led a bonkers and happy life. Joining a hippy commune in her 60's and entering a 10 mile walking race in her 80's are just a few of the remarkable things she did.
Extremely quick witted, intelligent and daring - she was and always will be, a true inspiration to me.

Why is this website so green? Does she also sell plants? Ha ha no I don't, here's why.....


Stressed out? Images of nature can bring instant calm.

We know that people who live near green spaces feel less stressed. But you don't need a park view to experience the soothing effects of nature. Research also shows that just seeing photos of  landscapes, greenery, seascapes and natural fractals (repeating patterns) like this plant, can do the trick too.


Better still, buy yourself a desk'll help increase your creativity and general happiness.

So, what about the bad habits? Here are the top ones....

1. Constantly Checking Your Phone

2. Not Really Listening

3. Multitasking
