What She Said Podcast
Hey people! It has been a while since I have actually written anything on my blog!
Shame on me…I have just been adapting to life in the UK after spending 6 months away in Ghana. I will soon do an update video; as I have so much to share!
In other news I have started a new podcast called ‘What She Said’ with my friend Nana. We discuss from relationships, work, sex and more but from the point of view of two black women from the UK.
We aim for the show to be light and fun, but also to educate. After all knowledge is power!
So far we have done four episodes and are quite proud of what we have done. You can listen anytime, whether it be on your commute, at your desk at work or whilst you are chilling at home.
We aim to release a new episode every Thursday.
With that said, don’t miss out! You can listen on SoundCloud or iTunes. Below are the links:

Health Is Wealth
I don’t think I understood this statement properly until last month. I just want to share how important our health is. Without our health all the things we are working towards and our possessions means nothing.
We only have one body and it is vital that you are aware of what you put inside it. Now I am not saying become a health freak and do nothing but eat well, (although that may not be a bad idea!) but do understand what you are putting inside your body and what it can do to your health long term. This could be beverages, food or medication. It even goes down to the lotion you use on your skin. Of course we won’t know everything, but it is better to have a little knowledge than none at all. And in this fast paced life we live today people tend not to have time to be conscious of these little things.
Your body will help you if you help your body. For example a car that runs on petrol. Now if you were to put diesel in the car, it will damage the engine and you may need to replace it. The thing about our bodies is that even when you put bad things in your body it may not necessarily break down straight away; (unless it is something toxic!) your body will try to work with what you are giving it. But it will come with long term effects, and then something serious might pop up. The difference is that we can’t just buy a new engine and everything will be fine, we have one body and we really should take care of it.
Below are some tips which you can incorporate into your day to day life:
-Drink more water
-Eat more vegetables and a little fruits (fruits are very high in sugar although natural)
-Try to do 30 minutes of exercise a day, even if it is just a walk
-Eat less saturated fats and more unsaturated fats, like avocado, seeds and nuts
From time to time you can treat yourself with a slice of cake or a cookie. Just balance it all out so you don’t overdo it.
If you are not going to take anything from this post, all I ask you to do is make one small change that your body will benefit from. Your body will thank you for it!
