Visiting your doctor in difficult times

One in five patients now has to wait at least 15 days to see a GP in England, NHS figures have revealed. Just under 5m of the 27.1m appointments at GPs’ surgeries in October involved waiting anywhere between 15 and 28 or more days to see a doctor or practice nurse. Patients are finding it …

Monday Mojo – Turn it Round

How do you introduce yourself to people? We usually start with what we do, like our job title or where we went to school. We try to “qualify” ourselves to show our worth. The problem is when we do this, even with all the qualifications and experience we have, we might still think “Am I …

Monday Mojo – Return to You

Where have you been during COVID? I don’t mean physically; I mean the real you.The one that laughs when your toast lands butter side down because you know, in the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t really matter.The one who smiles just because the sun is shining.The one who sparkles as you sing along with …

Monday Mojo – Rebuild Your Energy

What word would you use to describe this year so far? I recently saw a post on Facebook that said “Dear 2020, this was not on my Vision Board”. Others were asking if they can have a refund, because this was not the year they signed up for. It makes perfect sense, if you’re feeling …

Monday Mojo – Allow What’s Stuck

How’s your mojo today? I’m asking because there’s still a lot of weirdness in the world right now. News reports saying that life is returning to normal, whilst every day we’re hearing more stories about things that are still going wrong. (It’s why I include things like “What went right this week‘ in my weekly …

Monday Mojo – Trim the Tree

What does detachment mean to you?  If someone said they were feeling ‘detached’ from a situation, you might assume they were feeling left out or separate; even cold or aloof. When I teach mindfulness, I describe it differently.   Being detached from something doesn’t mean that you don’t care anymore.  It’s to be aware of …

Monday Mojo – Make Space for Play

Imagine for a moment, I said “The next five minutes are yours to do with whatever you want.” What would you do? You might say:Read a magazineMake a brewEat a Jaffa cake. (Totally with you on that one). I’ve talked before about time, and what a rare and precious commodity it is. It’s the one thing …

Monday Mojo – Take the Break

How relaxed are you feeling right now? You might think that’s a daft question with all that’s happening in the world right now, so I’ll explain why I’m asking. When lockdown first happened, I got a sense that many were feeling the pressure to keep up.  Many were forced to work from home, and carry on at …

Monday Mojo – Do What You Can

The last twelve weeks have been tough for many, but the last two have felt particularly… uncomfortable. At times scary. Definitely challenging. Everything in the news has felt like a tsunami of valid emotion including rage, anxiety, blame and shame. On the one hand, we’re still being told to do less. And on the other …

Monday Mojo – Cultivate Your Resilience

There is so much going on in the world right now that it’s proving hard to know what the right thing is to say or do. The impact of recent weeks, and even recent days, will affect us all in different ways, which is probably why so many well-being websites are focusing on the importance …
