Hello and welcome!
My name is Jocelyn. I created this blog/community to have a place where I could share my story, lessons learned, experiences and knowledge with you and besides that just share with you my ordinary day to day "hygge" lifestyle. Some days I feel like a 30 something year old with a 13 year old heart :) Life has really just started for me after struggling for so long.
I have been on a mission over the past few years to change the way I relate to mind, body, spirit & food and perhaps life in general... moving towards a more "hygge", simplistic and holistic living lifestyle for happiness and overall health and wellbeing. I have come to embrace my own style of simplicity and it has had a huge impact on every area of my life.
Throughout my life I have experienced many trials and tribulations, from experiencing burn out at a young age, childhood trauma, living with a prolonged eating disorder, body image issues, to suffering from many food sensitivities, digestive and hormonal issues, social anxiety and depression. Yikes...that sounds like a lot doesn't it??
I have learned that there is always a silver lining to dark times and now I am using my life experiences in the hopes of helping others and to let you know that you are not alone in your own struggles. Every day I try to enjoy the simple things in life and find little moments of joy while still allowing myself to feel through the difficult moments and acknowledge pain & grief.
Currently I am working from home. I am a recreation therapist (College grad - Conestoga College) and also currently in school for Holistic Nutrition.
I hope that I can provide some sort of value, inspiration and encouragement for you on your own healing journey - whatever that may look like for you. We all heal differently and we are all on our own unique path but may we hold space for one another and provide encouragement for one another.
So grab a cuppa, get cozy and lets have a chat! Welcome to my little hygge world.
