So many people enjoyed this blog so we made a video of  'The Coorie' with Hilda having great fun doing the voice over!

Okay some of us; and we know who we are, know we need to exercise more, eat more healthily, get out in the fresh air, but it can all seem like too much effort. 

Finding the motivation to make the change, needs to be something which makes sense to us as individuals, not what we are told is good for us, not what we are told we need to do, but something we recognise as having value, a priority, makes sense to us. 

Once we decide YES this is for me, then really, we can achieve things we never dreamt possible. 

We only need to look at the news, or maybe even some inspiring people you know personally and see the obstacles people overcome to achieve their dreams; despite often significant challenges life may have thrown their way.

So in comparison to a really big dream, is getting more fresh air, feeling cosy, eating healthily really so difficult?

At COPEScotland, we are always looking for new ways to promote ideas which may resonate with others who may think? 

OKAY think I will try that so……..

We read up a wee bit on the Scottish Lifestyle trend of 'Coorie' The Scottish answer to Hygge ''the Danish and Norwegian word for a mood of cosiness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment''.

Now at first looking at the dreich drizzly grey weather we often have here in Scotland this left us with!

We also know sometimes money can be tight, people don't have huge networks of friends to have cosy evenings with so wondered?

Then we really looked at Scotland and realised oh aye, we have the 'Coorie' all right.

Please have a wee read of the attached tips on bringing more 'Coorie' into your life and you may find it resonates with you and by default you may find you get out more, get more fresh air, feel more relaxed, not because anyone is telling you to do it, BUT because, it makes sense to you and something you say YES I want a bit more 'Corrie' in my life.

Whit’s happening April issue 2021!
