Happy city living

So I'm now a city girl and so far I'm enjoying it. Maybe because I know it's time limited. It's great to be able to step outside and have lots of nice shops, delis and boutiques on my doorstep oh and it's a 20 minute commute by bus to work, which after my last hour and a bit commute is blissful! On the downside,  it's expensive living here and I miss the garden, plus the shorter commute means I don't get as much reading time to myself. However the flat is smaller so less cleaning and tidying to do and I have a size-able kitchen which I is amazing after the boxy kitchen in the last house. There's also a lot of green areas around. The photo below was taken after a fifteen minute walk from our flat. You can see over the whole of Edinburgh.

Health wise, I knew I would be struggling a bit after the move and so I've been resting more which thankfully seems to have paid off. I have my initial haematology appointment next week so feel a little apprehensive but am keeping positive. I continue to do meditation although for shorter times and usually before bed, which isn't always the most restful time to do it but I still feel it's beneficial. I've also been more aware of my thoughts and actions and practising mindfulness, something I would like to explore further.

I came across an interesting website  which lists the ten ways that have been proven to make your life happier and more fulfilling and how you can incorporate these into your daily life. I'll let you know how it goes...
