Missing the bus – synchronicity and love

By the time I came out of my meeting this evening, it was cold and dark outside. I couldn’t see any buses approaching so I decided to walk briskly to the next bus stop to warm myself up. Just before I reached the next stop, the bus went past, and I was annoyed with myself. […]

Mental Health in the Workplace – a simple solution

30% of our lives are spent working. Let that sink in for a moment. Then consider the impact of your working life on the quality of your life as a whole. You owe it to yourself to make that 30% as positive as possible. Work is a happier place to be if we feel that […]

Women treat it, Men end it

In the UK, 72% of people being treated for depression are women. But 75% of suicides are men. These figures, compiled by the Men’s Health Forum, show that both men and women have trouble coping but men are not getting the help they need. https://www.menshealthforum.org.uk/key-data-mental-health Fortunately, action is now being taken to tackle this problem.

Organic – better in ways you never thought of

Apples in baskets under a tree

In September, along with harvest festivals of many faiths, we celebrate successful crops and all things organic. Organic is old news. We often think of organic foods as being somehow exotic but before chemical fertilizers were invented, in the 1850s, organic was all we had! This is normal, natural, and the way things have grown […]

Are you one of the 50%?

Last Saturday was sunny, and just about warm enough for everyone to do their British Summertime thing: shorts, flip flops, vest tops, sunglasses. I chuckled to myself (still wearing boots and a winter coat) and was glad of my layers as I sat outside a pub fending off a chilly March breeze. In the UK […]

Too Much Too Soon – diary anxiety and goal overwhelm

Running in PJs… This is not a normal January. Socially slow. Soggy underfoot. That’s pretty standard and quite acceptable, because we usually like to emerge slowly from our state of hibernation. But the usual, comfortable, slightly boring January plod, that’s not happening this year. Not for me anyway. 2014 burst in, dragged me out from […]

Could happen to anyone

Some of you will have been through what I’m about to describe. Others will know someone who has. If you’ve never encountered a life-changing event, keep reading: you might want to jump before you’re pushed. I’m talking about a career gone to pieces. It could be that your industry, once stable, has suddenly gone into […]

Who’s gonna drive you home?

You know those days when you barely have time to breathe? You get up, slurp a quick cuppa, run out of the door and find yourself in perpetual motion for the rest of the day. You don’t remember if you’ve had lunch or not and you travel home on autopilot. You could go out in […]

The World is changing – We are changing

What’s wrong with this picture? The Dalai Lama famously said, at the Vancouver Peace Summit in September 2009: “The world will be saved by the Western woman”. He foresaw a dramatic shift which we are now beginning to witness. This is a shift from the masculine way of working to the feminine. The aggressive masculine […]

Energetic Protection

What is it? Do you need it? We protect our physical bodies from potentially harmful elements such as excess heat, cold, wind and rain. We apply layers of clothing, umbrellas, physical shelter, around the outside. The worse the conditions, the heavier the protection. Our energy body needs protecting in much the same way. It is […]
