‘How Long Have I Got?’ by award winning blogger and researcher, Fi Munro, Ph.D. was recently listed as The Scottish Sun’s ‘Pick of The Week’

“Reading this book genuinely changed my life….Fi Munro’s refreshing and honest take on what it really means to live life WILL help you live a more fulfilled and beautiful life. A totally inspirational read.” – recent five star Amazon review


“It is my firm belief that the majority of the perceived problems and worries that are going on in our heads day in and day out could be changed by embracing the simple motto of choosing to live like you are dying. After all, would you stay in the job you hate or the relationship that makes you miserable if you thought your life would end in the next year? Hell no! You’d be out doing things that make you happy and you certainly wouldn’t be worrying about what dress size you were either!” Fi Munro, Ph.D. author of ‘How Long Have I Got?’

When you make the life changing choice to start to live like you are dying you will be able to discover your soul’s purpose and start enjoying your life.

If you are looking for inspiration to live a connected, joyful and compassionate life, welcome home.

Choosing to live like you are dying isn’t depressing, it’s about embracing the fact that we all have only one life and deciding to make the choice to start truly living for today.

Living for today allows you to discover what really matters. Through embracing the now, and focusing on what brings you joy and makes your heart sing, you can create a life with less stress, less pressure, less drama and more health, more love, more laughter.

If you are overwhelmed, under pressure and in a constant state of dis-ease, I know how you feel. I’ve been there. I’ve worked too hard, spent too much, punished my body, mind and spirit and all in the pursuit of ‘success’. I spent most of my adult life exhausted, stressed and sick. I was a big believer that I would be happy when…. when I earned a certain amount, when I owned a certain object, when I had a certain house. I was always chasing a fantasy in my constant pursuit of happiness and success. Things have changed a lot for me since then and now I realise that chasing future happiness is utter bullshit! Instead we can chose to be happy today and I’m going to help to show you how!

Hello! I’m Fi Munro, Ph.D. and I started this award winning blog and wrote my book ‘How Long Have I Got?’ to share my story and help you to discover what happens when you start living for today. I’ve been making both big and small changes to enable me to live my life in the now with the aim of making each day amazing. I am a best selling author and award wining researcher. I love to do (and teach) yoga and meditation, connecting with like minded people, reading, cooking and walking in my local woods with my dog Ozzy. I also love to travel, swim in the sea and laugh with my incredible husband, Ewan.

In January 2016, I was diagnosed with Stage Four B Ovarian Cancer. I was just 30 years old and I was being told I was terminal!

While my diagnosis doesn’t define me or this blog, it has undoubtedly had a huge impact on my life, waking me up to the fact I became more alive in the days, months and years after being told I was terminal. Now I use this insight to share the lessons a life changing diagnosis delivers. The years since my diagnosis have been an incredible journey of love, health, and connection. I’m so grateful to be on this path and connect with you all. I know it is my soul’s true purpose.

To live like you are dying means: Embrace today. Live for the moment. Stop worrying about the future. Focus on today. Laugh more. Take the risks. Follow your dreams. Be unashamedly you. Make the day good.

Living my life in this way allowed me to leave my high paid government research management career within the NHS and Scottish Government, to retrain as a yoga teacher, launch my own business and publish my books. I have never felt happier or more alive than I do today.

My cancer diagnosis saved my life.

I hope that the lessons and insight that I share here will save yours too.

With all my love, Fi xx
