Walking around Donegal

Tra Mor, Dunfanaghy Jan 2018

In August I relocated to Donegal after 6 years in Dublin. I miss Dublin lots and living back in a rural area definitely has its downsides. But there are positives. I am surrounded by beauty everywhere.

I’ve been doing lots of walking since I moved back. I’m always astounded by the absolute beauty in this county.

There is so much research to show that exercise has a huge positive impact on your mental health. Exercise in nature has proven itself to be even more effective. I’ll be writing a blog post on the benefits of exercise on your mental health very soon.

Tra Mor Beach Dunfanaghy, Dec 2017.

I’ve been walking lots in nature and it is helping. (Even if it’s only a tiny bit some days) I’ve put some of the pics I’ve taken on my phone into a short video (It’s only 1.40 mins long so check it out)

All pics have been taken on my Samsung Galaxy S7. You can also see more of my pics on my Instagram account 


The Coronas- Acoustic Covers

For any fan of the Coronas you have to watch this set of acoustic covers and some of their biggest hits.

I have to admit that I’m a HUGE fan, and it helps that Danny isn’t too sore on the old eyes or ears for that matter.

The Orangutan and the hounddog

Here’s something to make you feel better. I watched this and it put a smile on my face- it really does show the power of friendship and how there are no boundaries.

It takes a while to get into the video- but keep watching the video as I promise it gets good!

The Fun Theory

If stairs played musical notes when you walked on them, would you be more likely to take them?

Volkswagen has launched a popular new campaign called “The Fun Theory” which is “dedicated to the thought that something as simple as fun is the easiest way to change people’s behavior for the better.” It turns out that 66% more commuters opted for stairs over the escalators!

So what do you think, would you take the stairs if they were musical?
