So, this is me… Neha Hampton (née Patel), first generation born in the UK to Gujarati parents. I live in a beautiful home surrounded by the glorious West Sussex countryside with my beautiful little family.
I spent the majority of my adult life ‘making a living’ and in 2018 I decided to take the plunge and make a life doing the things that I love. This project was born from a desire to live well. I have a passion for food, yoga, travel and music and combining these things allows me to indulge, to nurture, to bring joy & to care… living well isn’t about rules or boundaries, there are enough of those. For me, it’s about equilibrium, it’s about finding your own balance.
My creativity comes from many places, from a traditional Gujarati upbringing, from significant life experiences, from my travels, from the people I was born to and from those that I choose. This all leads to a strong desire to celebrate being part of a global community, to show gratitude for the life that I have been blessed with and what better way to do that than to eat well, practice yoga and travel.
This song is so moving and reminds me to pick myself up & keep moving forward towards better things. If you haven’t heard of him, check out Nitin Sawhney who has unknowingly created the soundtrack to my little life.
