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 – Lower the Bar

Do you set high standards for yourself? It’s not a bad thing. By setting a bar, we can push ourselves to set targets and reach our goals. But sometimes those standards can be so high we might feel like we’re failing every day. It might sound dramatic, but here’s how I know: Over the last …

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 – Connect the Word

If you had to describe yourself in one word what would it be? I don’t just mean how you’re feeling, I mean a descriptor that might define you. Nine months ago, you  might easily have said, for example: enthusiastic, driven or focused.  I’m asking because you might not be feeling those things right now, and …

Monday Mojo – Speak Your Peace

How patient are you feeling right now? With everything that’s happening in the world, it makes sense if you’re feeling a little tense, with a wish that things would change.

Where are your energy levels at right now? As we await further announcements about measures to tackle COVID-19, you might have noticed your energy has shifted.

Monday Mojo – Have Wise Hope

It’s been quite the seven days since last week’s mojo hasn’t it? Whilst for many the focus was on the latest rules and restrictions, our attention was also brought towards our communities who – as always – were rallying together to provide help for those most in need.  I’ve noticed this about humankind. When difficulty strikes, people rise. …

Monday Mojo – Build Your Strategy

What’s your strategy for this week?  I ask because we’re hearing about the importance of having one on a daily basis.  As the lockdown continues, we are watching other nations prepare to bring some of their restrictions to an end. Eyes nervously turn to other countries to see how they’re coping; what works and what doesn’t. …

Grief, Loss and COVID-19

Note to the reader: This article is in response to the coronavirus outbreak, and discusses death and dying. It also explores how we may recognise grief and loss, even when no one has died. As the number of deaths continues to rise in the U.K. and around the world, many are facing grief in ways …

Monday Mojo – Let Yourself Breathe

It’s a Bank Holiday Monday here in the U.K. and we’re in week four of a lockdown due to COVID-19. It’s natural at times like this to find ourselves immersed in our thoughts, especially when our every day routine is not what it used to be. What’s your main train of thought about right now? …
