Trainee Educational Psychologist, Southampton
HOW DO YOU HALFTERNOON?
When I get some time to myself I like to unwind by putting on my comfy clothes and watching a good comedy, or by cleaning! It might seem strange to some but I really enjoy it and find it relaxing.
If I feel like going out I'll go on a long walk with the dog that I look after sometimes (I'd give anything to have a dog of my own but I split my time between Essex and Southampton so sadly it's not possible right now). In my opinion spending time with animals is the best therapy!
WHAT WOULD BE A DREAM HALFTERNOON?
My dream halfternoon would be spent chilling out with some beautiful scenery in either of my favourite places, a stony beach in Cornwall or the amazing countryside in Ireland! I'd have nowhere to be and nothing to do so I'd get lost in a good book for a while and then meet up with my favourite people for a good chat and catch up.
