If you could give one piece of advice to every single person in the world, what would it be?
Be a good friend, and get shit done. And remember whatever happens, the sun will still rise tomorrow…
What is your happiness hack?
I have actually created a bit of a happiness hack routine. I find that when I am feeling wobbly, my recipe for feeling better is often a good walk or run, some breathing or a mediation. Friends help too. It is so important to surround yourself with people you love and trust, and checking in with them usually sheds light on whatever situation you’re in.
Daring Greatly by Brene Brown, changed my life when I was 19. I read it at a time when I was really figuring things out, and it totally reframed my perspective on life. I now give it to friends when they’re going through a tricky time or when they just need to be a bit more daring or brave.
If I am in the mood for some music, I love a bit of Paolo Nutini and having grown up in Scotland, his soft Scottish tones are a sweet reminder of home. If it is a podcast moment, I have recently become hooked on Oprah and I have been a forever fan of all things Dolly Alderton.
Recommended place to visit:
Edinburgh. That city has an energy like no where else. Even when the sky is grey and it is pouring with rain, the streets glow and people smile back at you.
On a Sunday morning, we’ll find you…
If I’m in London, there is nothing better than a long lazy Sunday lupper (late lunch =lunch/supper) with friends… If I am in New York, then I normally put on my trainers and walk through the West Village and along Highline before grabbing a coffee with a friend (or on FaceTime to a friend back home!)
The perfect Sunday would be spent on a beach having a long lunch…ideally with food from Round Swamp Farm. When you know, you know. Every Sunday, no matter where I am in the world, I always make time to have a long call with my parents.
