Monday Mojo – Take it Slow

Have you felt like you’ve been rushing around lately? It’s usually about now things feel a bit, well… hectic. Depending on what sort of year you’ve had, you might feel a sense of urgency to get 2018 firmly out of the way, and start the new…

Monday Mojo – Lift Your Life

What lifts you? I posted on my Facebook page recently that I believe music is like time travel. A single song can transport you to a moment in your past, a good memory that brings back feelings of joy.  For some people what lifts them is doing…

Monday Mojo – Break The Rules

When was the last time you broke the rules? I don’t mean the law; I’m talking about those ‘rules’  which make life restrictive. The ones that include the word “should”.  The ones that leave us feeling unfulfilled. The ones that make life a bit, well…dull. And…

Monday Mojo – Avoid the Normal

Do you sometimes feel like you hold a piece of yourself back? From friends. From colleagues. From the rest of the world. When we meet someone new, it seems normal to censor what we say, to keep just a piece of ourselves hidden, so that…

World Mental Health Day – Conversations Start Journeys

10th October is World Mental Health Day, and the focus this year for me is very much that Conversations Start Journeys. Taking the time to talk to someone and find out how they are can be transformative and healing. Taking an interest in how…

Monday Mojo – Start a Conversation

How are you?  And by that, I mean how are you really? It’s a crucially important question, and one I deeply believe in. Because, you see, when people just ask us how we are, we usually say “I’m fine”. But we’re not always fine are we? And sometimes, we…

Monday Mojo – Find the Quiet

Have you noticed how noisy the world is lately? If you’ve travelled on a train lately you’ll know what I mean. People compete to be heard, by speaking louder and louder. They talk on their ‘phones and clatter the keyboards on their laptops. And…

Monday Mojo – Treat Yourself

Have you been looking after yourself lately? At this month’s Serenity, we noticed how selfish we feel when we give something to ourselves, whether it’s a warm bath, buying ourselves a treat, or just spending quality time on our own. We always feel like…

World Suicide Prevention Day – 10th September

10 September is World Suicide Prevention Day. Over 800,000 people die every year by suicide, that’s one person every 40 seconds. It is the leading cause of death in people under 24 in many European countries*, and in men under 50 in the U.K….

Monday Mojo – Shake It Off

How do you cope when someone says something unkind? It might be directly to you, or about someone or something that matters to you.  It can leave us feeling edgy. Uncomfortable. Even sad. When I was in my third pregnancy, and I found the courage to tell someone…

Toxic Parenting: How to Survive When Parents Mess You Up

A friend of mine (we’ll call her Fran*) recently had some bad news. Someone they thought they could trust, let them down in a really bad way. As we talked through how she felt about it, she had this sudden moment of clarity. The…
