“I’m not really much of a runner. I love cooking, cooking is really fun.”
We all have mental health and our different ways of staying well. In We Love Life, we uncover the wellbeing habits of people as they go about their days. Here, 20-year old pharmacy student Loreta tells us about her love of exercising, cooking and of course – trashy TV.
Hello Loreta, what are you currently studying?
I’m studying pharmacy at Liverpool John Moores!
Are you reading or watching anything we should know about?
I don’t really have time to read because I have so much revision to do! I read the bible which is always great. I’m watching Big Mouth on Netflix which is really good, I’m also watching Snowfall on BBC1. Oh yeah and also my trash TV; The Only Way is Essex, Absolutely Ascot, Real Housewives of Cheshire, Made in Chelsea, all of the good stuff.
What are you listening to?
I listen to a lot of UK music, Afro beats, grime, hip-hop, drill. I like some Latin and gospel too!
Do you have any aspirations for the future?
I wish to graduate with amazing results and get a good job, well paid. I just want to be happy really, be content in life. Just have good friends and a healthy family, be healthy etc.
What are you most grateful for in life?
I’m happy with where I live, my friends and family, my course, I’ve got a job and all that sort of thing.
And how do you stay mentally well?
I stay out of people’s drama, keeping myself to myself, I exercise – exercising is really good. I’m not really much of a runner. I love cooking, cooking is really fun. I like leisurely drinking, not heavy drinking, like with the friends you know, social drinking.
