With spring well-and-truly upon us, my mind inexorably jumps ahead to the Summer’s escape, to a gorgeous warm destination, passing lazy long days on the beach, jumping listlessly into the sea, savouring romantic dinners in floaty chiffon dresses… But far too often the lead up to summer can feel stressful and daunting, due to the fear of feeling uncomfortable or unhappy in your own skin (which is totally normal!).
