Some thoughts about food insecurity

Food insecurity is a massive issue and is not just an issue in certain countries (even though it’s commonly associated with particular countries.), food insecurity is something i have experienced myself when i was a child. Food security is defined as when all people, at all times, have physical, social, and economic access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life.

Sex positivity 101

 Sex positivity is something that i think ive always loved, but had no idea the movement even existed. I love to peel back the layers of shame that get in the way of me living a big beautiful life and sex positivity is a big part of that.

Food Freedom Fundamentals

Hello pals! I felt the desire to sit down and write about the courses we offer in The Messy Health School, so here we are. I created The Messy Health School in may 2020, but i had been working on it for a year. The thing is about business is that have a great idea, you start working on it and then you realise that you needed to start that project in order to get the idea of the actual project that is more aligned to you. When i first started the school i thought i wanted to create lectures, a small class on topics like emotional eating, binge eating and gut health etc. But then i realised i wanted to create something more in depth, i wanted more than just education, i wanted to create a resource that helped take guide someone through the mess that is dieting and how we view food.

Your mental health is more important than your grades

I consider myself to be very lucky, im safe, i have the ability to self isolate and have what i need. But feelings of overwhelm, anxiety and fear are things that i can’t shake at the moment.
