Forever on the go and asking yourself, 'But HOW can I possibly slow down?!' Try my favourite tips...
Let's explore what makes us tick and how we present ourselves to the world.
I’d better add a health warning to this post. I’ve just completed another RenewYou licensing event and once again been overwhelmed by the friendship and support so may just be a bit emotional…but I see nothing wrong with that. I’m a human, we emote. There’s been quite a bit of media-chat about women and friendship of late, mostly to the effect that women don’t make good friendships or look after each other in business.
I’ve been coaching quite a lot recently within organisations undergoing change. It’s tough if you’re the recipient of a major reorganisation, not least waiting to find out whether you have a job or not. Stress levels can rocket through the roof. If you are in this position, I have a question for you: Have you stopped looking after yourself?
It’s Friday and you’ve had a stressful week at work and are longing for the week end. Phew, thank goodness Friday is here and you dash home thankfully and very tired. But somehow the week end you had planned doesn’t quite cut the mustard. Your longed for rest and relaxation doesn’t materialise and you find yourself tetchy and irritated for much of the time. People around you are getting on your nerves and maybe you find yourself snapping at those close to you – kids, your partner or friends
Picture the scene, you've spent the best part of a year thinking ahead to your long awaited summer holiday. You've been working out, planning what you'll do when you're there, loaded up your Kindle, had all the waxing, pedicures and everything else done and you're just so ready and up for it. You arrive at the hotel and feel like your heart sink. Seriously? Is this it? It's nothing like the photos.
Often, when asked 'What Have You Been Up To? Our reply involves the words 'Same” and “old”. How can we change this?
It's easy to go through the motions of your life. One day feels much like another and suddenly you notice you feel like Shirley Valentine talking to the wall or the meteorologist in Groundhog Day who's stuck on repeat. Where do you start when you want to somehow begin again?
Do you have a lucky garment? If so, here's why it works...
It seems it's all too easy to say the wrong thing when someone's depressed. But how can you get it RIGHT? Here are some suggestions...
PSST! Style is never really about the clothes. It’s how the clothes make you feel. It’s the woo-hoo they bring out in you. Like Glinda the Good Witch from the Wizard of Oz said, “You had the power all along.” Sometimes you just need a pair of ruby slippers to remind you.
While many of us love clothes, we often have no idea where they came from, or who made them. "Feel-good fashion" can mean more than jeans that make your bum look good.
