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!

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!
