Why I Love Podcasts (+ My 3 Current Faves) | Jessica Says

Hello superstars! As you ought to know by now, I’m a massive geek when it comes to time management, organisation and getting things done in the most efficient way possible — without burning out or turning into a lifeless (and most importantly, funless) robot, of course! Over the months, I’ve shared quite a few of my favourite hacks with you: from eating more healthily and working out more to injecting a little more self-love magic into our lives, I firmly believe that there are myriad things that we can do to make our lives exponentially better on a tight schedule. (It’s kind of my thing, y’know.)

Today, I’d like to share my new favourite thing of the hour — a brilliant, free tool that makes making self-love personal development a part of my daily life so much easier. You’ve guessed it — today, I’m going to talk all about why I love podcasts and share some of my current faves

Whether you’ve never listened to a podcast or are a seasoned veteran, you’re in for a treat with these three inspiring picks. Shall we get started?

Recipe: Baked Salmon with Spicy Guac and Low-Carb Rice

Recipe: Baked Salmon with Spicy Guac and Low-Carb Rice | Jessica Says

Hello superstars! Today, I’m delighted to share yet another recipe whose delicious results were first unveiled on Instagram a few weeks ago. This time, it isn’t a dessert (although rest assured that plenty more of those will be coming your way very soon — watch this space!), but rather an exquisite dish full of flavour and goodness that I’m certain will have no trouble wedging itself in to your weekly meal rotation. Behold: my baked salmon with spicy guac and low-carb rice!

There are so many flavour elements in this dish and to be honest, the ingredients list is a bit on the long side, but don’t fret: this delicious meal comes together in a jiffy and is ridiculously simple to make. It’s gorgeous enough to serve in company, super tasty, and best of all — it’s full of healthy fats and fibre, all the while being low-carb and paleo-friendly. Perfection!

How to Get Over a Really Shit Day (in 7 Steps)

How to Get Over a Really Shit Day (in 7 Steps) | Jessica Says

Hello superstars! You know when you have the shittiest of shit days and all you want to do is wallow in all the crap? Yep – I’ve had one of those recently; a fist-shaking, ugly-crying, everything-going-to-hell kind of day. Not fun. But, as we always do, I got over it, and I came up with a system (you know I love those) to make it a little less painful next time. (Excuse the title, by the way; I don’t often swear on this blog, but I believe in calling a duck, a duck.)

There are seven steps (I know that’s a lot, but bear with me), and each is designed to make you feel a little bit better. They each build on each other and leave you feeling a LOT more human in the end — promise. No matter how insurmountable your problems seem right now, these steps will make a difference if you commit to them.

Shall we?
