Hi there! I’m Yolanda and welcome to Put The Kettle On.
Where I come from we put the kettle on for all different reasons and my brew of choice is a good cup of strong, black English tea. In the UK, when someone is sad we put the kettle on, feeling tired we put the kettle on, just won the lottery we put the kettle on (okay, there will also be just a few drinks with this one)!
There is an old saying from Bernard-Paul Heroux, a 1900’s Basque philosopher, ‘There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be diminished by a nice cup of tea’.
With today’s stresses we tend to think a lot about what we hope to have in the future. Getting that promotion, renovating our kitchen, going on a dream trip, starting our own business, or finding love. This is all very positive to think about (goals are important), as long as you can also be happy in the present and appreciate the good you have in your life right now. My personal goal is to cherish all the great things I have today and discover new ways to make the most of life in the present.
I’ll look at tips and ideas on bringing true happiness to life in simple ways; whether it be getting through a to-do list, trying new ways to relieve stress, discovering acts of kindness or ways to look after yourself. Simple joy in our lives today is the recipe for a happy, healthy life tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget, if you need a little self love – put the kettle on!
