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

Wisdom from the 17th Century…

I was given this Nun’s prayer on a bookmark, some years ago, & I wanted to share it with you all… ‘Keep me from the fatal habit of thinking that I must say something on every subject & on every occasion. Release me from craving to straighten out everybody’s affairs. With my vast store of knowledge, it seems a pity not to use it

Ooh, I love my job!

Sometimes I get to head out into quiet back lanes, alongside rivers, where you really feel like you’re going back in time – hardly any cars on the road.. Other times, I’m coming home as the bats take to the air, or the owls come out, the sun goes down… all heavenly… I love it… especially as my corner of Helston is pretty low
