    Is the modern world making us unhappy?

    With rates of stress and anxiety rising or perhaps just being more widely spoken about and accepted in society, how can we stay sane on a planet that is making us mad? How do we feel human in an increasingly technological world? And how do we stay happy in an over-anxious world? After experiencing years of anxiety and panic attacks, number one bestselling author, Matt Haig, sought answers to these questions, and began looking at the link between what he felt and the world around him hence why ‘Notes on a Nervous Planet’ was written. Working in social media in my day job and then managing multiple social accounts for my…

    Mother-Daughter Day at Nirvana Spa
