THE BLUE MONDAY BULLSHIT BONANZA

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

A few days into Lockdown #2 and we are still being tested by global events. For many of us it means digging deep, again, to find that inner resolve that can help carry you through. So, in the craziness and chaos that surrounds you, how do you tap into your inner...

CAN YOU SELF-REGULATE?

CAN YOU SELF-REGULATE?

There is definitely more tension in the air. I can smell it. It’s visible as you walk down the street, drive your car, meet people on Zoom for the tenth time that day. It feels as though the slightest push could be a push too far. With so much confusion still lurking,...

YOUR WORDS CAN KILL!

YOUR WORDS CAN KILL!

Sounds dramatic, huh? It isn't. It's true. The words you choose have the influence and power to either nourish or destroy. I got hooked into a thread on LinkedIn yesterday where a connection of mine and the CEO of a large and influential organisation made some...
