Stuck around the middle!

There’s something about coming out of Winter & heading into Spring, that seems to generate more energy, changes in eating & exercise as the days get a little bit longer. I’ve tended to think that carrying a little more weight or inches through the Winter is no bad thing, as long as it ‘disappears’ as we shift seasons… The problem is, that as we get

Arriving ‘satiated’…

Over the years, I have learnt to factor in time for a cuppa before I go anywhere, something to eat before I go out, & a moment to pause before I leave the house, so that when I arrive at an appointment (any appointment), my needs have been met… This, of course, does not mean nothing happens en route, & I’m not suggesting I always

Rest, rest & more rest!

I’ve had an interesting time since my last Blog Post – absorbing lots of new information, meeting new people, dealing with an ever-changing appointment book (sometimes it just goes like that!) & also being reminded of practices from earlier times in my life… The biggest ‘take away’ for me has been the importance of REST, at every stage of our lives. I remember visiting

Asymmetry!

Our lives are asymmetrical, our bodies are asymmetrical, so, it’s good to remember to ‘add in’ asymmetrical measures for balance. What I mean by that is… if we have a dominance on one side – leg, arm, entire side of the body – it may not be smart to work out in a symmetrical way to achieve balance. For example, if we have a

Fresh green shoots everywhere…

& a sense of wanting to fling off heavy winter coats… or is that just me?! In between horizontal rain showers, we have had moments of sunshine & stunning clouds here in Cornwall. There does seem to be promise in the air once more, in spite of soggy fields and hovering lurgy for many of us! Can’t be long till Spring really arrives… surely…? I

Going within…

So… how goes it out there? It’s been a couple of months & I was talking to a friend the other day about why this nasty virus & flu has hit us all so badly this year, what is underneath it all etc etc… We like to explore all aspects… &, it seems to me, we need to ‘go within’… to retreat & restore,

Surrendering…

As we get older, it’s good to check in more frequently with our body (& our life) to ensure that how we’re living is working for us. I have a sense that every year after 55, is like a dog year, though I also notice that I can age after a difficult time, then regain some strength, health & vitality, ‘youth’ even, when it

Loving your feedback… & Review time!

Tis an odd thing, to press the ‘Publish’ button on my Blog Posts, send them into the ether… & then have no real idea of whether they are useful… so… I love it when I get emails, texts or comments about how some brought you to tears, came at the perfect time or, indeed, confirmed what you were already doing… I had some great

Homemade ‘TV Dinners’!

As you’ve spotted, I like to mix up the content of my Blog Posts – deep & meaningful, followed by simply practical, so here goes… I am a lover of batch cooking – vital with my work schedule, but also incredibly useful as I live (& mostly eat) alone. So, I batch cook every possible component, which enables me to concoct a myriad of different
