Be kind to yourself, Warriors!

Be kind to yourself, Warriors!

So here we are! Monday morning: an opportunity to renew good intentions, revisit lapsed resolutions and start the week afresh. For too many of us though, this is exactly when we are hardest on ourselves: our inner critics go into overdrive reminding us how much we have to do, and everything that didn’t quite get done last week. With Springtime comes an added pressure. This morning, like me, have you looked in the mirror with a groan and a promise to get back on the diet and go to the gym? Share the...

YOUR top twenty travel tips

YOUR top twenty travel tips

Starting to prepare for my imminent trip to NYC got me thinking.  What travel tips do I consciously/sub-consciously take into account? Could I be better prepared? What strategies could I put into action that would make for a calmer, more organised and altogether more pleasant holiday?  I was going to scour the internet for guidance, as I so often do, but then I stopped. Why seek the counsel of strangers as well-informed as they may be, when I have the very best resource at my fingertips… Share the...
