About This Blog

Hi there!

I’m Melanie Chisnall, author of this blog – a spot devoted to all things wellness and healthy…

  • mind
  • body
  • spirit
  • feel good stuff
  • giving back, growing, living, de-stressing, meditation, fitness, etc. 

Good Health Buzz was brought to life in 2013 after I decided that I wanted to get healthier and fitter and needed a way to feel accountable on this journey. It’s gone through quite a few changes and hiatuses over the last 3 years – but, I feel like it’s always been there and it’s true to who I am so I think it’s about time I gave it some TLC again.

A few things about me…

  • I’m an outgoing introvert with an INFJ personality
  • I daydream far too much for my own good
  • I’m Sagittarius, so my mind is always on travel
  • I’m ambitious, I like change and I hate being stagnant
  • It took me 10 years to realise I wanted to write for a living
  • I was born in Namibia
  • I’m sometimes shy and a little awkward 
  • I’ve finally realised that it’s cool to be unique and different
  • Dancing sets my soul on fire (thank you mom for forcing me to do ballet way back when!)
  • I can get a little selfish
  • I’m trying to be more authentic in my writing – kind of lost my way last year (damn you SEO)
  • I left my heart in California last year
  • I’m an animal lover
  • I binge watch Real Housewives
  • I tend to come across as aloof or rude to new people
  • 2016 is a year of personal challenges – I’m setting new ones all the time
  • I “met” my husband online, back when chat rooms were a thing
  • I’m really passionate about wellness – at home and at work
  • I’m obsessed with Pinterest quotes, good Pinotage and excellent coffee
  • I judge too easily – I’m working on it
  • I’ve been vegetarian for 2 years – I don’t miss meat, I just miss all the food options
  • I’ll probably always be an entrepreneur at heart
  • I feel unstoppable behind my sunglasses
