Lovin’ in the Car Wash

The view of the car park blurred & disappeared as the droplets of water exploded against my windscreen. My mind was transported to a cliff top overlooking the ocean on a stormy day, the rain pounding the car as I enjoyed the cosy shelter of the front seat, flask...

What is this overwhelm people speak of?!

Overwhelm - The buzz word of the moment. Why? Because despite the change of the use of the word in recent years, it is a word that best describes what so many of us are feeling day to day! To feel overwhelmed with emotions, responsibilities, demands, 'to do' lists,...

Are your imagining your overwhelm?

I was going to entitle this blog 'Is overwhelm all in your head?' but I know that would have seemed like an even bolder statement than the one I plumped for. You see I know that the feeling of overwhelm is never just in your head - it is in your whole body. But this...

Why I Dumped the Drink

Alcohol, the bane of my life for the whole of my life! Well, I say for the whole of my life, I really mean since I was 12 or 13 and had my first experience of a killer ‘vomitty’ hangover after secretly drinking at a friend’s party in a barn in the middle of nowhere. I...

The Power of Finding People Who Know How!

Are there things you are beavering away at right now, which are taking you away from what you are really good at or what you are really meant to be doing?

Are there things that are draining your time and energy, which could be better spent doing things that light you up and bring you back to life?

You see, this is how life goes if we let it.

It piles things upon us which are not meant for us, and sometimes it is not until we reach breaking point that we realise that something has to change.

Why is it that getting back to nature now has to be prescribed?!

I just read that Doctors in Scotland are now prescribing activities in nature to help with mental health issues. This is a wonderful thing and I hope it creates the beginning of a big shift in the way we deal with mental health in the UK. However isn't it sad that...

Is your ‘to do’ list as long as the M1?

I know as well as anyone that when you have a to do list is as long as the M1 & your head feels like spaghetti junction, any notion of taking a break is as laughable as a satisfactory Brexit deal.
