Monday Mojo – Take One Step

Do you ever feel like you’re walking through treacle; three steps forward then two steps back? With news of snow, floods and another new variant, it makes sense if you feel like you’re on the teacups at the fair. (I never did like them). 78% of people have said, as a result of the pandemic, …

Monday Mojo – Focus on You

Where are you on the overwhelm scale right now? If 1 is “what day is it?” (where I think most of us can relate) then 10 would be “seriously, this can’t go on much longer”. If you’re feeling the fears and frustrations that come with managing uncertainty, you’re not alone. Today is Blue Monday, the third …

Monday Mojo – Begin Your Vision

What are your plans? It might sound a weird question, when there’s so much uncertainty in the world right now so bear with me whilst I expand.  You see, I’m a big believer in making them.   I’m not talking about big life changes, or planning your future to the nth degree, especially when COVID-19 has …

Monday Mojo – Find Your Awe

How are you? It’s a genuine question. I’m asking because if you’re nervously moving into 2021, that’s ok – we’re allowed to be cautious when life has been, well, anything but ok. Whatever you’re feeling right now, it’s valid and it matters. As more of us have moved into Tier 4 in the U.K. we …

Monday Mojo – Place Your Thinking

What’s going through your mind right now?  If you’re just putting your foot on the gas pedal to get 2020 out of the way, I hear you. I’m not sure anyone has been able to escape the impact of COVID-19, even if they’ve not had the virus itself. People have had to adjust the way …

Monday Mojo – Ask the Crowd

How do you feel about asking for help? I think, if we’re being honest, there’s a vulnerability in it. When we reach out to someone, it means letting them see we have a need. It means letting go of the fear about what they might think of us. It also means opening up to the …

Monday Mojo – Create Some Stillness

On a scale of 1-10 (if 10 is firing on all cylinders, full of the joys of spring, and one is can’t get out of bed), where are you at right now? I’m asking because we are often the last people to check on ourselves. When we are naturally Human Givers, we put others before …

Monday Mojo – Give Yourself Time

How much time do you have on your hands at the moment? It might sound like a strange question when we’re in the middle of another lockdown in the U.K. We could assume that some people have more time, whilst others might say that have less time than ever. Ashley Whillans refers to the latter …
