Here goes...


Well. Here it is: My first blog post. 

I've been thinking of writing this for a while, in fact, I can pinpoint the moment I first thought about it...sat on a train from Birmingham to London on a cold, February afternoon.

I wanted a space I could write about my experiences of the last few years whilst *hopefully* providing something others can read and think “Oh, OK, I’m NOT alone!”

So, what’s in a name? There are a lot of blogs, Facebook pages and Instagram accounts out there dedicated to wellness, yoga, and mindfulness that I found myself in a spiral of feeling not good enough, not able to keep up with the latest ‘trend’ and feeling a bit overwhelmed and stressed by the whole notion of ‘clean living’. Mind, Body & Gin is the antidote! I will attempt to delve into the issues we all may face with our mental and physical health, hopefully with some humour along the way!  

This is me. The one on the left, obvs. 

A bit about me:

I'm Helen, a 31-year-old woman writing in Birmingham, UK. The last 3 years have seen me end a long and frankly toxic relationship, handle numerous episodes of pretty severe pain (more about that later…), lose friends, make friends, find a healthy, fun, hilarious relationship and move to the Midlands after spending much of my life in a sleepy town in Suffolk.

In this blog, I’ll be exploring some of the issues and topics which are important to me: 
travel, yoga, feminism, relationships... This list isn’t exhaustive and I’ll most likely post some drivel I read on Twitter at some point…

Well, that’s enough for now I think. My next post will be up soon!
