About

‘People have given their health to their doctor, their money to their banker, their soul to the preacher, their children to the education system and in doing so, have lost control over their own lives.’

My favourite motto is ‘yesterday I was clever and I wanted to change the world, today I am wise and I want to change myself’. What applies to the macro starts with the micro, as we seek to question and experience the grey area of the ‘truth’ for ourselves.

As someone who grew up being fed the fast-paced London lifestyle, I enjoy investigating methods of becoming more mindful and balanced in an increasingly manic world. My main motivations for researching and sharing have always been to further educate myself about the food I eat, the products I use, the places I visit and the activities I love.

The writing (typing) skills are a continuous work in progress and only reflect my ever-evolving views at the time of writing but in the era of click-bait and junk, I hope that you may find some of the articles on here applicable and useful, or at least thought provoking for you too.

‘Do not shun any healing possibility simply out of an ignorant following of current popular opinion. Nor is it wise to follow any ‘magic cure’ out of faith, wishful thinking or new age glamour. Educate yourself. Learn how your body works’. – Josephine McCarthy

About Nia Davies: I studied Medical Science with Gastroenterology and Hepatology (gut and liver health) at Imperial College London and also retain an interest in areas such as mental health and PCOS. I developed a concurrent interest in many more holistic forms of health and enjoy a variety of ventures, including my personal-care and wellness brand – Yūgenial

‘I write — or attempt to write — about a saner, healthier, more centred way of moving through the world. Though I want to be clear about something: I don’t write about being sane, centred, and healthy because I am those things. I write about them because they — more often than not — elude me.

I write about patience because I am impatient.

I write about compassion because I am filled with judgment.

I write about meditation because my mind is incredibly active and loud.

I write about forgiveness because I am prone to resentment and grievance.

I write about risk-taking and busting up routine because I am a slave to habit.

I write about creative output and battling resistance because I am a highly distractible, world class procrastinator.

I write about giving myself permission to feel grief because I tend to run from negative feelings.

I write as an antidote to the madness within, as a reminder to myself of what is possible, like a message-in-a-bottle from a wiser me to a less evolved me. Often I don’t even know how I feel about a thing until I write about it. Sometimes my typing fingers are smarter than the thoughts in my head. So I pay attention to what I write. There’s something in there for me.’
