Monday Mojo – Change the Recipe

Do you ever find you get stuck with the same routine? It happens easily, and it’s not always a bad thing. It’s good to know where we are, what we like and what we’re doing.  But sometimes, we fall into a rut. We do the same…

Monday Mojo – Feed Your Soul

When you’ve had a hard day, how do you take care of yourself? The world feels more intense when things aren’t going our way. If someone’s been unkind, or we feel we fell short in some way, it can knock the wind right out of our sails….

Monday Mojo – Delay Your Yes

How do you feel when you say no? If you got that pinch in your stomach just thinking about it, you’ll recognise the sense of anxiety when we try to tell someone they’re not getting what they want. So, we might cave, and let them get their way….

A rest is as good as a change – using mindfulness for managing uncertainty

How do you feel about change? We like to be in control, generally speaking. We like to feel prepared, to know what’s going to happen next, and – if change is coming – we want to be on the right side of it.  In…

Monday Mojo – Feel the Connection

Today is Blue Monday, or as the Samaritans are calling it “Brew Monday”. An opportunity to chat with a friend over a good old cuppa. So, how many people does it take to make a cup of tea? I promise this isn’t one of those…

Monday Mojo – Treasure Your Energy

How is your energy? At the start of each week, and especially at the commencement of a new year, there’s a pressure to begin with a full tank of positive mojo. We straighten our tiaras.  We create the to do list.  We aspire to get more done, even if it means we…

Monday Mojo – Put It Down

How rested do you feel? It’s a genuine question, as although for some people today is their first day back at work, for many they never actually stopped. Have you noticed how we always have something to do? The problem is, even when you’ve…

New Year Mojo – Clear the Path

How do you feel about 2019? It’s about now the pressure really starts to mount to make new year’s resolutions, and set goals with good intentions. To try that new diet. To get more exercise. To better yourself in one way or another. The ‘New…

Setting Boundaries: Why Your Personal Ground Rules Matter and How to Make Them

If you’ve ever attended a professional training course, you’ll know the first thing the teacher usually does is set the ground rules for the day. These almost always include respecting each other’s opinion, and switching off your mobile ‘phone. But how often do you…

Seasonal Self-Care – taking care of yourself at Christmas (and beyond)

At this time of year, self-care and setting healthy boundaries with yourself, family and friends are important. Here are some ideas of how to take care of yourself this Christmas (and beyond): • Create positive space as much as possible, keep your mental health…

Monday Mojo – Challenge the Mirror

What’s your relationship like with your mirror? I ask, because a lot of people don’t have a good relationship with theirs. You might spend as little time as possible in front of it, because to look in the mirror can feel like vanity.  But…

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…
