Monday Mojo – Find Your Word

What word sums up how you’re feeling today? It might be:Tired.Frustrated. Motivated. Or all / none of the above. The thing about feelings is they can change in an instant.  For example, you arrive at work full of the joys of spring, only to find a snotty email from someone that sets the tone for …

Monday Mojo – Do One Thing

How much have you got on your to-do list today? If like many of us, your list is growing ever longer, you’ll know what it’s like to reach 5pm (if that’s even close to when you finish) most days and wonder how much you’ve achieved. According to Dr Megan Reitz, the ‘average’ employee is interrupted at …

Monday Mojo – Know Your Zone

Where are you meant to be today? I know you may be at work, or have a day off, or seeing to jobs at home – but I’m talking about the big picture.  The vision you have for where maybe you’d rather be.  For a Monday, you might be:Firing on all cylinders. Full of feel-good mojo.. Living your best …

Monday Mojo – Define Your Limits

How do you know when you’ve had enough? Some people have some early warning signs. They might: • feel grumpier than usual • feel like hiding • sigh.

Monday Mojo – Set the Tone

Do you ever feel like people just don’t listen? Like you’re talking to a brick wall. That what you say falls on ‘deaf ears’. As if you’re talking another language.  When we feel misunderstood it’s easy to raise our voice in anger. To shout out, have a knee-jerk reaction and say something we didn’t actually …

Monday Mojo – Start Where You Are

Do you ever feel like you can’t keep up? Like it’s all just moving a bit too fast.  That other people are strides in front.  That somehow you’ve fallen behind. Or fallen short.  I often liken the pace of life to that of a treadmill. Before we know it we’re hurtling along, striving for perfection, …

Monday Mojo – Honour Your Gifts

What does the world need right now that you have to offer? I don’t mean more of your time or energy, as you’re probably giving that out in tonnes anyway. I mean the genuine gifts that you bring to the party of life.  As part of Mental Health Awareness Week, I talked about the Five Ways to …

Monday Mojo – Toot Your Horn

What would happen if you said it like it is right now? Sometimes we hold back for all the right reasons, while other people push ahead.  Last week, I travelled into London to deliver a mindfulness taster session. As I travelled in a taxi towards my first appointment, all I could hear were cars, vans and lorries …
