Being Mindful – Is mindfulness for you?

Being mindful - Is mindfulness for you?

Whenever somebody mentioned mindfulness meditation to me previously, I always imagined people sitting around barefoot and cross-legged sporting tie-dye clothing in a room full of dream catchers chanting ‘om’ and banging mini symbols together with the smell of burning sandalwood incense sticks penetrating the air.  Whilst perfectly acceptable – having never been in touch with […]

Stopping Self-Sabotage – a journey to break the habit.

Stopping Self-Sabotage: a journey to break the habit

The plan had been to sit and write this article at 10am today.  It’s now 11.02am.  On my way to my office, I stopped to water the garden plants, do the washing up, put the washing away – all jobs that can wait.  None of them as important as my actual work, but all tools […]

Don’t Let Fear Hold You Back

One of my inner circle is pregnant.  She is 36 years old.  A few years ago, her then fiance decided 6 weeks before their wedding to call it all off.  He wanted them to stay together, but he did not want to get married.  Her heart was broken.  She took the very brave decision to […]

New Beginnings

I have lived a lot of my life ‘under the duvet’ – my little head poking out witnessing enough to be able to interact and function, but ultimately hidden away in a cosy, warm, safe environment avoiding change and sticking to what I know.  Sound familiar to you? When I did venture out, it might […]
