Overwhelm? 5 steps towards re-balance.

Are you overwhelmed? Are you interested in a FREE ten minute meditation you can listen to, to help you re-connect and gain perpective? Read on... Sometimes we all have 'off' days. Sometimes it lasts longer than that. Something just doesn't feel quite right and we reach a state of overwhelm... our mind doesn't want to stop thinking, and ironically it stops our thoughts from being clear. Energy levels drop and lethargy and procrastination win us over. But we must keep going! It's not as simple as retreating into our shell until we recover... There is work to do, maybe little people to look after, maybe older people to look after. But who looks after ...

Are you a no-helpian?

I was watching our favourite family movie the other day with the children. Otis the cow, in the film 'Barnyard', leaving behind his carefree days to take responsibility and stand up for others. Well, we all have to grow up some time. Yes, these days come to us all. During one of his 'partays' he gets pizza delivered. He reaches out of the barn door, with fake human arms, to collect the pizzas, really carrying far more than he can handle, and drops one of the arms!! The horrified pizza boy offers assistance, yet Otis (trying to protect his real identity as a cow) claims he doesn't need any help. It's against his 'religion'. He declares himself a ...

Mirror, mirror on the wall… that’s me?

What do you see when you look in the mirror? Do you actually look at yourself? Have you ever looked deeply at your own eyes; the colour, variations between the outer iris and the inner iris; the pupils, changing size slightly as you turn your head and the light changes; the patterns within the colours? What kind of feelings come up for you when you look at yourself? Positive or judgmental? It is so hard to see the good in ourselves. We  spend so much time looking at others who are ‘like this’ or ‘like that’, instead of the reality that is ‘I recognise that quality in myself.’ However small it may be, it IS there. Why is it so hard to ...

Yoga… sleep???

Calmness, peacefulness, relaxation. "I could do with that!", people tell me, when I say I am a yoga teacher or talk about my practise. I also sometimes get the response "Oh but I am not flexible enough to do yoga.". Posture practise, which has commonly become known as 'yoga', is only one part of it.. In my humble opinion, yoga, (union of body and mind) is possibly more difficult to work towards through postures, to those of us who are flexible than it is to those of us who aren't, unless you are hung up on what the person next to you is doing. Sometimes, even the thought of yoga posture practise can seem so daunting to people that they just don't ...
