Monday Mojo – Sleep on It

How are you sleeping lately? You might have found that you’ve been having some troubled nights, waking up at weird hours or found it hard to nod off. If that’s you, you’re not alone.  With the first wave behind us, and the ever-present threat of a second, it makes perfect sense if you crawl into …

Monday Mojo – Roll With It

How do you feel when someone criticises you? It’s not easy when a friend or colleague finds a reason to have a pop. We might close down and withdraw, or come out fighting. Whether you turn away from someone’s comments or come out with your best game face on, it can be draining. It takes …

Monday Mojo – Make it Small

What’s your goal for this week? I’m deliberately not asking about this month, or the rest of this year, because I think everyone is a bit nervous about making big plans right now.  And actually, that’s not a bad thing. When we tend to focus on big changes, we can put ourselves under a lot of pressure …

Monday Mojo – Bring the Roar

Have you got a decision to make? It’s generally quoted that we make somewhere in the region of 35,000 choices every day.What to wear.What to have for breakfast.Whether to “like” something on social media (or not). Some decisions are easier than others, whilst some require making our voices heard. I’m often encouraging you, like last …

Monday Mojo – Push the Button

When you think about what you really want, what stops you going for it? A healthy vision of your future might have popped in to your head when you read that, and that might be a place to start. The pandemic has obviously put a few things on hold, but as things slowly return to …

Monday Mojo – Style Your Moment

How do you express yourself? From an early age, we are usually programmed to put a lid on difficult emotions. The problem with this is, where those feelings don’t dissipate, they fester. When emotions don’t have an outlet they lay in wait, underground, until something happens and then … pop! Like a cork – there’s …

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 …
