Welcome to Help Me to Help Myself!
My name is Nicole, I am almost 30 years old, and from the UK. For the past three and a half years I’ve been living in Japan with my husband and we have a 2 year old son together named Hugo.
We are currently living in Sendai, a 6 hour drive north of Tokyo. We decided to make the move from Tokyo at the beginning of November because I am currently pregnant with our second son and we wanted to be closer to family before the new arrival.
As a family, we are interested in, and try to apply: a minimalist, zero waste lifestyle and I am personally trying to move to a more plant based diet. We also adhere to the Montessori philosophy at home with our son. I’d like to blog a little about how we do this and how these lifestyle choices complement each other. I also want to do this from the perspective of living here in Japan.
