I’d like to introduce a new series on my blog about wellbeing.
My wellbeing posts always receive a positive response, and readers say they learn from them. I enjoy writing those posts, and will continue to do so.
I’m doing videos because they are an effective method of conveying a message through visual cues such as body language. It’s a way of complementing what I am trying to say. And sometimes it’s good to see a face, isn’t it?
The wellbeing videos will be about all sorts of things related to emotional and physical wellbeing. There will be something for everyone – and if you have a particular topic or comment in mind, please do get in touch.
Facebook Live is great because it’s there, it’s happening, and it’s raw. It also means that viewers can engage live by asking questions and commenting. I’ll try to give some warning so that you can watch live if you would like to and are able.
Don’t worry if you’re not able to watch a video live, because it will be on the Facebook page to watch at any time.
One benefit of Facebook live is that there is no faffing around with editing and things (I hate faff, and often end up avoiding anything that involves faffing). However, the peril of live broadcasting is that the signal may sometimes drop out. Please bear with me!
If you’re not on Facebook don’t worry, because I’ll be posting the videos here on the blog, too.
Please see below the debut video of the series, with a message about finding the light at the end of the tunnel. When you’re in the midst of dark times, it might seem that light is not there. It is there, but the tunnels can move, shift, go up and down making the journey arduous, exhausting and difficult. But keep going. One step at a time. Keep moving forward, and you will emerge.
I’m honoured to have been shortlisted in the Best Campaigner category of the 2016 Mumsnet Blogging Awards. Please would you take a second to vote for me, and help me reach the final? Voting is open until October 6.
