But then I thought, maybe people will laugh or judge… maybe my boss will find out and give me the sack… maybe my friends will think I’m weird..

Then this weekend, a post on the “32 life lessons I learned by age 32” by life coach Susie Moore was shared by a contact on my LinkedIn and some of the points struck home –

5 – Life is better when you’re in it

6 – Take your desires seriously

10 – Kindness counts above all else

18 – The biggest regrets come from pleasing other people

27 – No one is ever ready

29 – Everyone is scared

In Favour Of will be a mix of tips, tricks and ideas that I’ve found have helped me throughout the years, with a focus on exercise and learning to look after and treat yourself when you’re feeling low.
