Welcome to my website!
I’m Leila (pronounced Lyla) a 23 year old with a passion for health, wellness and self-improvement. I have a degree in Psychology and a Master’s in Health Psychology. I also love writing, reading, travel and am a self-confessed foodie.
My masters program encompasses what I think healthcare should be all about – a patient centered approach that addresses specific behaviours such as diet, physical activity and mental health to improve people’s lives and prevent the need for future medication. I believe in a hollistic stance to mental and physical health, breaking down the stigmas, opening up the conversation and sharing successful strategies.
My writing journey started on Instagram with my account @thehealthstudent; where I share aspects of my life, health and wellness tips and lots of healthy recipes. Back to my roots, my IG is now @leilamspencer and I continue to post over there, so go and check it out. My love for writing has driven me to start this blog to expand on some of the topics that I am passionate about.
This website is my little corner of the internet where you can expect;
blog posts, healthy recipes, lifestyle tips, daily routines, adventures and my thoughts on a range of health topics. I have a tonne of ideas for things to come and hope you return back to see what I’m posting!
