Hello, and welcome to Positively JW!
A health, fitness, food, lifestyle and travel blog.
Hey! My name is Jess Ward, I am a passionate writer, explorer, foodie and fitness lover. I am a freelance journalist, a certified travel blogger with Clickstay Villa Renters, an award-winning health blogger with Health Bloggers Community and I have also been recognised as one of the top 16 Fitness Influencers from the North of England by The Body Confidential.
I am a true Northerner living in the heart of London – I am loving every minute of it!
Where did Positively Jessica Ward begin?
My passion for blogging began back in 2013 when I created a blog to note down memories and capture them in an online archive. At this time, it was my space on the internet which was personal to me and allowed me to escape the outside world.
I was 14 years old when I began my internet journey. In my teenage years, I was bullied at school and I suffered with severe depression. During this time, I had a difficult time accepting my body and it made a huge impact on my health, my confidence and my overall wellbeing.
For many years of my life, I had suicidal thoughts, I experienced extreme panic attacks and at some moments, I felt trapped in my own body. Despite my own personal struggles, I have always radiated positivity to others.
My blog evolved from a private online archive to a hub for all things positive. One day when I had broken out of a panic attack, I realised that I couldn’t access the help I needed. There were no blogs to read, no useful books that provided support and I truly felt lost. From this point onwards, I realised that I needed to make a change. I stepped out of my comfort zone to leave that dark place behind me in the past and that was when I created Positively Jessica Ward; a location for all things positive.
Follow me on my journey where I post a little bit of everything… Food, fitness, wellbeing, lifestyle and the odd spot of travel. I do not cap any of my creativity and I always try and incorporate a positive edge!
When I discovered fitness and healthy eating a few years ago, it turned my life around and I developed into a stronger person – physically and mentally. I would never look back. Throughout the process of hating my body.. I have now begun to adore every imperfection. I am human. I have feelings and I am trying each day to be the best I can be. I have down days, I have great days… Everything contributes to a greater outcome.
