Simple tips to avoid festive burnout this Christmas

Dec 23 2020

I am Louise Murray and I am a Holistic Health Coach with a qualification from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and a Mindfulness Teacher. I take a truly holistic approach to health and wellness by nourishing people ON and OFF the plate by coaching them with nutrition advice combined with lifestyle and behaviour change, healthy habit formation, mindset tools, mindfulness and self-care practices. As a mother of a large family (4 kid mama!), I know a thing or two about Christmas burnout. Let’s be honest, between the gift purchasing and wrapping, handmade cards, and endless household chores and ‘to do’ lists –  most mums feel the pressure of the upcoming festive season.

Green Living: Brits to spend £2.5 billion replacing household goods that could be saved this Christmas

Dec 18 2020

I love a new initiative run by Oust, the descaling solution, called ‘We Can Save It’ to help Brits save money this winter following the pandemic. This follows new research revealing that Brits are expected to spend £2.5 billion scrapping and replacing household goods over the festive period*, as retail sales drive Brits into consumption. 29% of Brits said products being replaced could be saved, and 43% of Brits are currently in debt. Oust has worked with experts from all over the UK to offer free advice to Brits to help them save money and on waste this season. It is a great PR and marketing campaign that should make us think about wastage and green living.
