Happiness is not where you might think it is

In my workshops I talk about happiness, that being the real meaning of it. I talk about how shops and online retailers will have us believe that in order to be happy, you need what they have. This image arrived in my inbox today, and is a perfect example of this. The only problem is, …

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 – 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 …

Mindfulness: It’s The Thought That Counts

We have thousands of thoughts a day. It’s been suggested we have between 12,000 to 80,000 thoughts, which could be as many as 2,500 an hour. According to some articles up to 85% of the thoughts we have are negative, and 90% are repetitive. What you thought about yesterday, you’ll probably think about today and …

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. …

Monday Mojo – Reset the Moment

How are you finding 2019 so far? At Saturday’s Serenity we reflected on how quickly we’ve arrived in March, and used the time and space to bring ourselves back to centre. We talked about how the year’s gone so far and, if we’ve steered off course a little, talked about how to reset so that we can aim for where we …

Monday Mojo – Let it Simmer

Have you noticed that life has its own timescale? In a world where we can get whatever we want (materially) at the touch of a button, it makes sense that we might find waiting a chore.  Whether it’s to find out if you got that job, or if the date you’ve seen is going to call you back, life can sometimes feel like it’s put us …
