The idea behind my Blog Posts!

I wanted to be clear about this – I am not necessarily attempting to say anything especially clever or deep, nor share new information (though sometimes I may do that!) … but, what I am looking to do is to bring to the forefront of your minds aspects we can all forget, or let slip, along the way, with everyday life. Often this is

The next 20 – 30 years …

How do we maintain or improve our bodies & our brains, & therefore our output, whatever our specific plans? We are all different ages, in different circumstances, with very different histories…but, somehow we need to find some common understanding about the balance of what we put in, versus what we’ll get out. With the awareness that most of us don’t know how long we

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
