Wisdom Wednesday: Benefits of spending time with friends

Hi friends and family (and other readers).

Sorry it’s been a while since I’ve posted, I’ve been rather unwell over the last week. My body finally seems to be as happy as it seems to be with me again lately (no upset tummy anymore)…


On the weekend two of our friends got married and although I wasn’t feeling the best I had a wonderful time.

It seems that since being so ill the main time I’ve managed to see the majority of our friends has been when we were at someone’s wedding. This is something I’m going to focus on fixing over the next month or so.


Because spending time with friends is important for both my mental and physical health.

When I manage to spend time with my friends I feel so much better about myself. Even if I’m in a lot of pain and having a lot of difficulty focusing it’s nice to know that I’m still me here.

I may not participate in as many conversations as I used to (not that I actually participated that much anyway, I’ve always preferred to listen to what’s going on around me), and I may struggle to focus occasionally, but it’s nice to know I can still be there for my friends.

So I am going to begin to make more of an effort to spend time with my friends. I know it’s not going to be easy because I can’t do late nights and they all work during the week (and sometimes the weekend as well) but I’m going to try and organise more regular afternoon teas and lunches and any other day time activities I can come up with that I’m able to participate in.

If you’re one of my friends look out for more invites from me. The invite for the Foggy Frog campaign launch this Sunday is just the beginning. 🙂

The Foggy Frog Campaign Launch is this Sunday at 2 pm CST (Adelaide). If you’re in Adelaide, and you’d like to join us in person, we’ll be having afternoon tea at our house (just let me know you’re coming). If you’re not in Adelaide, you can still participate because we’ll have a conversation going on through Twitter (#FoggyFrog) and on our Facebook page.

Please join us on the day to learn more about how you can participate in the campaign.

With just 4 days left until the launch, please join our Thunderclap to help us launch with a bang!
