I used to work in a really big office and there was always someone who was on a diet.
They’d tell people about the weight they wanted to lose and what diet they were now on (having already tried a dozen others already).
They were ALWAYS hopeful at the start and yet a few short weeks in - or sometimes days - saying how they’d ‘cheated’ or it wasn’t working and how they were now looking at the next diet or juice cleanse (or whatever) next.Read More
The first year after my guy came out of hospital things we REALLY tough.
Along with not being able to walk anymore he was also in so. much. pain. every. single. day. - and that was on top of a whole bunch of other pretty shitty stuff he was already dealing with (that’s not mine to share).
I guess it was the naivety of not knowing, of not having been in such a situation before, that I didn’t realise just how much would end up falling on my shoulders.Read More
I’m not one for creating complex morning routines (I like to keep things simple and easy), yet I have found three questions to creating a really great day today, and every day…Read More
For years I’ve studied Positive Psychology.
I adore it’s teachings (it's changed my life), and yet there is one part - no matter how hard I’ve tried with it - that just hasn’t ‘clicked’.
That thing? Gratitude.
Before I begin working with a coaching client I always start by asking them what their biggest goals and dreams are right now...
I ask them what they would love to do and achieve through working together?
They always reply and tell me, sometimes letting me know what’s stopped them so far or gotten in their way…Read More
While I’m not the biggest fan of setting New Year’s resolutions (anyone ever stick to one of those??), I am a big fan of taking a few minutes at the end of each year to reflect on all that has and setting my intention(s) for the year ahead.Read More
Since the day you're born you start to get conditioned into living by everyone else's 'rules'.
Don't be late.
Don't talk so much. Don't be so loud. Don't be so quiet.Read More
You know you have those days where you just seem to get up, do a bunch of (not really that interesting/exciting) stuff, tick some things off your to do list, eat dinner then go to bed before getting up to do what feels like the same again the next day?Read More
You know sometimes you just feel all foggy/funky/what-the-heck-should-I-do-with-my-life about stuff... And while you're not exactly happy with where you are right now, you're also not entirely sure if you know what you really do want next..?Read More
I see a lot of Self Care lists floating around, mostly filled with ideas like...
Going for a walk.
Drinking a green smoothie.
Having a bubble bath.Read More
A few years ago I had THE MOST HORRIFIC flight to Thailand.
I was flying from the UK, and the trip should have taken 13 hours (long enough), but oh no, this particular (and I'm feeling the need to repeat - HORRIFIC) flight took 3 WHOLE DAYS.
I feel awkward telling people I'm a Designer, because I'm not qualified enough. You see, I didn't go to uni so I'm completely self taught.
I feel like a fraud telling people I'm Life Coach (so I often don't...), because right now I feel like don't have enough clients to say that.Read More
To be the same person you were last year, last month, or even five minutes ago.
To answer every email the second they come in. Or even on the same day. Or even, ever.
To say yes when you want to say no.Read More
Imagine for a second I placed ten tennis balls in front of you - and when I say this, I'm taking the assumption you haven't been spending every weekend mastering your circus skills - before asking you to juggle them.Read More
