Monday Mojo – Trim the Tree

What does detachment mean to you?  If someone said they were feeling ‘detached’ from a situation, you might assume they were feeling left out or separate; even cold or aloof. When I teach mindfulness, I describe it differently.   Being detached from something doesn’t mean that you don’t care anymore.  It’s to be aware of …

Monday Mojo – Explore Your Why

It’s another Bank Holiday Monday here in the U.K.. Many, including key workers and those who’ve been home-schooling, may be glad of the rest if they get one, especially if it’s half term week where you are. Pre-COVID19, a Bank Holiday week/end might be when we bring out the barbecue, go out with friends, or …

Monday Mojo – Connect Your Way

How connected are you feeling today? Researchers are beginning to highlight that one of the biggest impacts of lockdown has been the toll on connection. While virtual environments work for some, and are mainly what we have right now, they don’t work well when they’re forced. So if it feels like something is missing right …

Monday Mojo – Take Small Wins

How’s your concentration been? In the U.K. we are entering our third week of lockdown. It makes sense if your mind just won’t sit still right now. Life feels uncertain and challenging in ways we never expected. And then, there’s the “influencers” . You’ll know the ones I mean. They’re the high-energy people saying this …

Monday Mojo – Find Your Language

Well it’s been quite a week, hasn’t it? You’ve probably noticed, we’re learning new language every day.   We’ve heard terms like ‘self-isolation’, ‘social distancing’, ‘herd immunity’ and ‘sunset clauses’. We’re being told we’re “on a trajectory”, which Russell Brand said (for him) went from “I don’t believe this is happening”, to “how can I …

Monday Mojo – Know Your Weather

What weather describes you right now?  You might be feeling like: a ray of sunshine bit grey and patchy or even cloudy with a chance of meatballs. Whatever you feel in this moment is valid, and it matters. Have you noticed though, that British people LOVE talking about the weather?  So much so I genuinely use this (and other analogies) in my therapeutic …

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 the ones that, in all seriousness, can create more harm than …

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 feel like we’re burdening people, if we say what’s on our minds. …

Monday Mojo – Honour Your Time

What’s taking up your time lately? It’s one of our most precious commodities, time. You can invest it, but you can’t own it. We can spend it, but we can’t get a refund. We can waste it, but we can’t stop it. We move through every day trying to make the most of it, and …

Monday Mojo – Say It Last

Have you ever walked away from a conversation and thought “I should have said that?” Or found yourself in a situation when someone else does all the talking? Now, I would be the last person to tell you to be quiet; I’m always talking about raising your voice and speaking your truth. But, in an …
