My Summer First Aid Kit!

Small spray filled with (just) water  – buy at Boots, Superdrug etc. The fine spray evaporates really quickly, & it’s perfect for anywhere that needs cooling down. Brilliant for overheated babies or kids too – a mood changer for all! Lavender and/or Tea Tree essential oil – these can be applied directly to the skin on insect bites, spots etc. You could use a

If in doubt, write an OVERLOAD list!

When I’m feeling overloaded, overwhelmed, or indeed low or grumpy… any ‘state’ I’m not keen on (!), I make a list… and, you will not believe how much difference writing ALL of what’s getting to you can make! I get a pad & let myself write EVERYTHING that comes into my head – diary style, this is not for anyone else’s eyes, & I

Gratitude – big up what you get right!

Many of you know I’m a fan of the ‘gratitude list’ as a morning ritual, & that I like to tweak it, to keep it fresh, to stay connected to it. Something I’ve employed of late is an appreciation (gratitude) for qualities I’ve used the day before – it could be tasks I’ve done that I’ve been putting off forever, or pushing through something

Make ‘CHANGE’ easy!

I was talking to a client recently, about staying fit, getting fit, making changes to your diet, especially as you get older & the serious health implications seem to become more apparent. We were discussing why more people don’t take the time, make the effort, or whatever it is exactly, for them. I feel it’s often because they’re self conscious about where they are, &

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
