Now I’m going to spill some not-so-sweet tea… just before the lock-down my anxiety hit a spike after months of burying it, and I ended up having to sign myself off work due to stress.

Here’s a few ways that I have been coping with anxiety and stress since then; I hope you find them useful.
I decided to try 30 new foods I’d never had before, in the hope of broadening my culinary experience before I turned 30.

I asked my lovely friend, Rachel, for her top tips on how to play a fighter in D&D. Rachel has been playing as a fighter in a regular campaign for some time now, and as I’m used to more of a spell-caster vibe of character, I thought the lockdown would be the perfect opportunity to pick her brains!

One thing I am thankful for is that I am able to write this post, since there’s so much time for self-reflection and hobbies nowadays.
