Monday Mojo – Set Aside Time

What do you think about time? Apart from the fact that there never seems to be enough of it these days.  Our relationship with time is something of a paradox.  It’s precious, but costs nothing.  You can spend it, but you can’t get a refund.  You can use it, but you’ll never own it. When …

Monday Mojo – Know Your People

How many people do you trust? As we get older, it’s often said that your circle gets smaller. You start to realise who you can count on. Who “gets” you. Who you would turn to when things go a bit pear-shaped.  But as we age, it’s also harder to make friends. At school we’d maybe just …

How to help someone you’re worried about

When someone you love is struggling with their mental health, it can be hard to know what to say and do. Sometimes we can feel concerned if our efforts to help someone don’t seem to be working, or frustrated if they say they don’t want or need our help. There are a number of ways …

Monday Mojo – Tap into Wisdom

How’s your intuition these days? Your spidey-sense.  Your inner wisdom.  Your gut.. ..and what’s it telling you? We are built to be “in tune” with our environment. Our body was designed to know when it’s time to go to sleep (before technology did its best to put a stop to that). It’s how we can …

Monday Mojo – Set the Tone

Do you ever feel like people just don’t listen? Like you’re talking to a brick wall. That what you say falls on ‘deaf ears’. As if you’re talking another language.  When we feel misunderstood it’s easy to raise our voice in anger. To shout out, have a knee-jerk reaction and say something we didn’t actually …

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 …

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, …

Visiting your doctor in difficult times

One in five patients now has to wait at least 15 days to see a GP in England, NHS figures have revealed. Just under 5m of the 27.1m appointments at GPs’ surgeries in October involved waiting anywhere between 15 and 28 or more days to see a doctor or practice nurse. Patients are finding it …

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 …
