Every so often I meet someone who floors me. Emily Monk, of Forage and Find Me is one of those people. I met her on a gloriously sunny day on Exmouth beach to find out about her funky eco jewellery, made from foraged materials. I soon discovered we weren’t going to spend the whole afternoon discussing making techniques and environmental impact, rather her mental health and how her new businesses literally saved her, following a suicide attempt. Her story is very poignant, especially for any women who may have suffered from Post Natal Depression. It wasn’t a happy story to tell but it has a strong ending with a bright future and it’s very real. My feature was published in the August Issue of Exeter Living magazine – you can read it below.
Copywriting for big brands is something I’m increasingly asked to do but it can be tricky to share my work as most content created is covered by non-disclosure agreements. However, Liverpool Victoria has kindly said I can share a piece I recently created for them – 7 Ways to improve your focus and reduce stress. I spoke to several mental health and wellbeing experts to enable me to write the piece and by following my own advice I’ve been able to improve my focus. Have a read, you might learn something that helps your focus or enables you to reduce stress.
