Monday Mojo – Bring in Mercy

What do you think about forgiveness? I think the modern definition is somewhat over-rated, and I much prefer its original meaning.  Let me explain. Today, people often associate forgiveness with letting people off the hook. Accepting their excuses. Pretending the hurt didn’t happen.  People might say you “just need to forgive” like it’s as easy …

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 – Catch Your Breath

When was the last time you stopped? I don’t mean at a traffic light, or to go to bed. I mean genuinely just downed tools and took a moment to take it all in.  When we lead busy lives the emphasis is always on doing not being. It’s one of the reasons I describe in …

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 – Indulge Your Body

If you could reasonably give your body what it needs right now, what would it be? Perhaps you need a stretch, or a dance around your kitchen.  Maybe a hand massage.  Or just some calm, deep breaths.  Maybe you’re not friends with your body right now. Sometimes that’s because of society’s expectations around perfection and …

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 …

Monday Mojo – Reclaim Your Power

How powerful do you feel today? Let’s be honest, by the time Monday comes round, we can feel exhausted.  In the ‘old days’ the working week was clearly defined for many people: Monday to Friday, 9 to 5 and the weekends were reserved for rest and relaxation.  But today it’s not that simple.  The technology …

Monday Mojo – Stop and Drop

Is something weighing you down right now?When we live busy lives it’s easy to lose sight of how much we are carrying around: • The challenges of trying to get everything ‘just right’.  • Worry about friends or family. • Deadlines at work.  They all add up.  It helps to recognise what’s on your mind …

Monday Mojo – Create Your Space

Where is your sanctuary? The place you go when you need some time out, when you need some peace and quiet away from the chaos of the world.  Because we all need one.  When life is busy, it’s easy for our private spaces to become cluttered. Magazines get piled up in the corner, with every intention they’ll get …

Monday Mojo – Enjoy the Moment

What do you do when you get a day off? It’s Easter Monday as this is published, here in the U.K. and for a lot of people it can mean any number of things, most of which require energy. We think about doing some spring cleaning. We might consider getting a bit of DIY done. …
