On Friday, I shared a post with you about using the flexible working time ahead to self-reflect on your career. I suggested too that you could use the time to (further) explore the powerful tool that is mindfulness.

Two of my favourite ‘self-help’ books focus on the now. Now is the Time by Sister Stan and The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. The essence of both is that all we ever have is now, this present moment. And what we do with the here and now defines the quality of our existence. […]

At this time of year, there is a lot of inspiration being offered to you.  You’re probably reading words and phrases like ‘new you’, ‘transformation’, ‘big change’ etc. with regularity. Today’s post is an attempt to inspire […]

I got to see Frozen II with my niece and Dad before Christmas. As well as being a great movie, it has a great song in it too, called Into the Unknown. We ourselves are heading into the unknown of a new year and new decade. I’d like to start this new year and new […]

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening? Let the bells ring out for Christmas. And the bells are ringing out for Christmas Day. As the festive season kicks in the bells are beginning to ring out. Bells are synonymous with this time of the year. So too are bells synonymous with track athletics. A bell is […]
