THE HARSH TRUTH ABOUT BOUNDARIES

THE HARSH TRUTH ABOUT BOUNDARIES

Like it has been and, probably still is, for many of you, life has felt full and occasionally overflowing. I keep having this image and dream pop up of a bath where the water is pouring over the top and I cannot turn the taps off. Jeez, it fires off my anxiety. I have...

WHAT ARE YOU NOT SEEING?!

WHAT ARE YOU NOT SEEING?!

Our household was a little chaotic this morning; window cleaner (the dog wants to eat him!), prepping for an early work call, trying to tread lightly around the house (Sleeping Beauty Teenager) and Timmy the Door Trimmer (the dog wants to eat him too!). Timmy is a...

LARGE FRIES WITH YOUR BIG MAC MCMINDFULNESS BURGER?!

LARGE FRIES WITH YOUR BIG MAC MCMINDFULNESS BURGER?!

Who doesn't love a bit of junk food, huh? Whilst I eat a plant based diet, so give a wide berth to Big Mac's, I'm a sucker for a crisps, chocolate, chips and a Big Coke. That combination of salt and sugar slips down a treat. My taste buds tingle. My tummy feels full...

THE HIDDEN COST OF A TOXIC CULTURE

THE HIDDEN COST OF A TOXIC CULTURE

Emily looked up from her desk. She could barely see more than a few feet in front of her through the gloopy wafts of smoke. The back of her throat felt burnt. The taste was foul. Each breath took more effort than the last.  As she looked around, she was just able...

THE BLUE MONDAY BULLSHIT BONANZA

It's Blue Monday today. The day where you will undoubtedly feel depressed and sad. Because it's Blue. And....it's a Monday. And because it's cold outside. Unless you live in the Mediterranean. In which case, you might feel happy. Because it's warm. And not actually...

EVEN SUPERHERO’S NEED A REST

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2021. I am sure I have at least a few more days where wishing folks a Happy New Year is permitted before people punch me in the face. A 'virtual punch in the face', of course... With 2020 firmly in the rear view mirror, 2021 is beckoning us,...

LIVING FROM YOUR LOVE LANGUAGE

LIVING FROM YOUR LOVE LANGUAGE

During the UK’s, 5 Days of Christmas that we have in store, some of you will be lucky enough (or unlucky, depending how you look at it!) to be hanging out with those you love most. In a year that has been more crammed with isolation than connection, this will come as...

HOW TO GET THROUGH THE WINTER BLUES

HOW TO GET THROUGH THE WINTER BLUES

As we all move into the winter months and, with the events of 2020 as our backdrop, it’s no wonder that so many of us are experiencing some winter blues; a persistent low mood, lethargy, eating more carbs, finding it harder to get up in the morning….these may be...

NAKED LEADERSHIP – ARE YOU BRAVE ENOUGH?

NAKED LEADERSHIP – ARE YOU BRAVE ENOUGH?

I cannot believe that this guy 👆 is not even wearing trainer socks. I mean, what's the world come to. Going out into the public, wearing trainers and NO socks. 🤦 Many years ago when I was a fit young thing with the body of a Greek God (in the land of my imagination) I...

DOES YOUR CAREER LIGHT YOU UP?

DOES YOUR CAREER LIGHT YOU UP?

Many of us have fallen into careers that we started because we ‘had to’ or what others thought were ‘best for us’ and really we didn’t have much excitement for it from the start. Others might be at the stage where the roaring flame and love for what you do has now...
