Pockets of Mindfulness | CharlotteBehappy




Although many of us are on holiday, the end of exams doesn't mean everything becomes fine and dandy. I find myself even now getting overwhelmed and stressed for many reasons (moving to university isn't particularly easy). I thought I'd compile a little list of some self care and mindful things you can do. For me, they're important and despite how simple they are, I have to make a conscious effort to do these things. Let me know what you think, and comment if you have any of your own ideas.

Thames Barrier Park | CharlotteBehappy




I love London but it's very easy to find yourself a) always going to the same places (Westfield, Camden, Oxford Street) or b) feeling as if you've gone pretty much everywhere. I have my top 10 favourite places to visit in London post here. I'm always keen on finding new free places in London I haven't been before. Today I visited the Thames Barrier Reef and the park that surrounds it. You can access it from the DLR and it's right outside the station Pontoon Dock (on the way to city airport). I went here once on a school trip and there used to be fountains where lots of kids would play when it's hot but today there was just a lone skateboarder. It's still a really nice park and I thought I'd share some pictures with you.
