ABOUT

I’m Rachel Brady, married to Adam, and mum to Arthur (11) and Beatrix (9) and Stanley (3). We have lived in the Peak District for the past 9 years, where have renovated a farmhouse. Ad and I lived in Manchester for 13 years where I worked in digital marketing before I had my son in 2010 and then my daughter in 2012 and finally my third child in 2018.

This started out as a family food blog called Well Worn Whisk – it was a hobby I began in April 2012 one boring Sunday afternoon. I decided to change from Well Worn Whisk to Mrs Rachel Brady a few years after, and I created content about not just family food, but about all the things that make me happy. Like, a mummy lifestyle blog if you like.

Thennnn… stay with me lol… just recently, in January 2022 I changed it AGAIN to Really Well Rachel.

I realised I missed blogging. And I wanted to combine my homemaking stuff with my wellness stuff.

See, the blog wasn’t very active for a few years as I had a really tricky time. I got diagnosed with depression, then ADHD and then decided to quit drinking. THEN I got diagnosed with Bipolar 2 and Borderline Personality Disorder.

I KNOW!!!!! Duh-duh-duhhhhhhhhhh!

All very heavy things but actually I would never change them. I feel really relieved and happy that I finally got all the answers. It’s only taken 42 years!!

That brings us to now. I’m excited to relaunch my blog as Really Well Rachel. Someone said once that my blog should reflect where I am at in my own life, and that’s what I hope it does. I’m a home-loving mum. And I always will be. But I am also a yoga teacher, holistic life coach, and essential oil business owner. My business site is coming soon if you wish to book on my yoga classes, book some coaching or buy some oils.

I love creating content and sharing my experiences to connect with others. This is what really lights me up. I honestly believe I am meant to create content and connect and help other women, mums in particular, with their home life and mental health.

I hope that my content on here and on my YouTube, Instagram – and my sober podcast (search ‘The Sober Woo’ in your favourite podcast provider – help other mums be better in themselves and therefore more able to enjoy life.

Finally, I love to hear from you – it makes my day when I get a nice comment, email or social message.
