Monday Mojo – Feel the Magic

Do you believe in magic? I don’t mean the likes of Dynamo or (for those of us old enough to remember) Paul Daniels, or the David Blaine video of Harrison Ford going viral (warning: he does say a “fluff” word at the end). I’m talking about things like the miracles of nature; moments that just take your breath …

Monday Mojo – Break It Down

Who are you today? It might sound like an odd question but I’m talking about hats. Not the hat you’d wear to a wedding or on holiday (obvs), but the labels you identify with:Daughter.Friend.Spouse.Employee.They all matter.  The problem can be that with each of those comes its own demands which become difficult to manage. In …

Monday Mojo – Plan for Overload

How good are you at “reading” people? If you follow me on social media you’ll know that sometimes I share the work of Joe Navarro, an FBI agent who is an expert in body language. Joe’s fascinating insights span a 25 year career, meaning he can share “cues” and “tells” that enable us to ascertain …

Monday Mojo – Turn the Wheel

How are you feeling? I’m asking because it’s a big day. Today, in the U.K. we take another step along the “road map” out of lockdown, which some might say feels like it has lasted forever. As many will be feeling excited, there will be those feeling more than a bit nervous. I recently asked …

Monday Mojo – Nudge Your Thinking

What’s occupying your thoughts right now? Whilst some are looking forward to the freedom from restrictions, there’s an understandable wariness about what life will be like. A cautious hope perhaps that we’re coming out of the woods, mingled maybe with some natural post lockdown anxiety. It’s ok if we’re quietly optimistic but somewhat guarded at …

What brings you that warm, contented feeling? Before we signed up to adulting, and then a raging pandemic hit, there might have been any number of things that brought a sense of comfort. Snuggling under a blanket. A favourite meal.Reading a beloved book. When life gets a bit weird though, as it has been lately, engaging …

Being Kind to Your Mind

Depending on which articles you read, there is a general assertion that we have somewhere in the region of 60,000 – 80,000 thoughts a day. Of those, a fair percentage will be repetitive; what you think about today will be what you thought about yesterday, and you’ll think about tomorrow. We also know, many will …

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 …
