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 – Recharge Yourself

How are your energy levels today? Around this time of year, a lot of people find their batteries are running low. It usually means: You’re smiling through the tears. Gritting your teeth. And the cup of care is nearly empty. Things that normally wouldn’t bother you, might be really getting up your nose. You’re losing patience with people …

Monday Mojo – Lift Your Life

What lifts you? I posted on my Facebook page recently that I believe music is like time travel. A single song can transport you to a moment in your past, a good memory that brings back feelings of joy.  For some people what lifts them is doing a hobby they love, or spending time with people they care …

Monday Mojo – Dress for the Party

Do you remember “Sunday Best”? Those clothes we kept just for Sunday School. A relative’s china that stayed in the cupboard for “special days”.  That bottle of bubbly in preparation for the day we get some good news. Many of of us are raised to keep things for when something important happens. But the thing is, something important …

Monday Mojo – Boast a Little

When was the last time you blew your own trumpet? Spoke of your achievements. Fluffed your own feathers. Raised a glass to yourself. Feels weird doesn’t it? Maybe even awkward and uncomfortable. It might depend on what you see as success though. For some people just getting out of bed is an accomplishment. For others, it’s turning a …

Monday Mojo – Find Your Wings

Are you a busy bee? The nature of the world we currently live in, is an expectation to fly at a 100 miles per hour, every day of the week. We wake up, get up, and zoom off; our feet hit the ground and away we go. Then, before we know it, it’s time for bed. Our head …

World Mental Health Day – Conversations Start Journeys

10th October is World Mental Health Day, and the focus this year for me is very much that Conversations Start Journeys. Taking the time to talk to someone and find out how they are can be transformative and healing. Taking an interest in how someone is, can help them feel like they matter. According to …

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 – Find the Quiet

Have you noticed how noisy the world is lately? If you’ve travelled on a train lately you’ll know what I mean. People compete to be heard, by speaking louder and louder. They talk on their ‘phones and clatter the keyboards on their laptops. And to drown out the house, people plug into their headphones, ironically …
