Finding Your Flow

January has landed…in full force! It’s cold outside, seemingly permanently dark, and summer seems oh so far away. Many of us at this time of year are exhausted from the Christmas period, and it becomes difficult to see ourselves escaping from the repetitive cycle of work, eat and sleep…summer holidays are [...]

The City of Angels: Lessons Learnt

I needed a tube of ointment. On prescription. I was finding LA daunting – big, brash and a far cry from my little home-town in the UK. Still, the plus would be everything was open 24 hours here and I’d have it in a jiffy. $140 later (and 4 minutes with [...]

Runny eggs and the Now

Time – it’s the strangest thing. They always say as you get older, time passes more quickly, and I often smile and think I have turned into my grandma as I find myself repeating, “Where has the year gone, it’s almost Christmas?!”. It’s the age old thing that when you’re having [...]

The Kindness of Karma

Bali. An island teeming with beauty. While I could write endlessly about the exquisite natural attractions I visited on my recent trip, I want to write to you all about the beauty I found at the very core of the island, the beauty that makes this island my happy place. The [...]

Me, Meditation and My Neti-Pot

As I stood in front of Mark, I felt weak and tired. So much so I had to sit down during our (what was intended to be) brief chat. With all his positivity, the last thing I wanted to tell him was that I was struggling with my health and wondering [...]

Opening Doors

‘As one door closes, another opens,’ my Dad always used to say.  Especially when I split up from a boyfriend (‘Plenty more fish in the sea’ was another favourite!). Recently I’ve had a number of doors closing and as such I’ve been pondering on how to deal with it at the [...]

My Perfect Place of Paradise

As I climbed out of the taxi my head ached, my chest hurt and my mind was spiralling out of control like a washing machine stuck on high spin unable to stop. I couldn’t get that horrid work email out of my thoughts and I could feel the obsessive thinking kicking [...]

Solving the Happiness Equation

I do love a good equation. It’s probably down to my science background, having studied Chemistry at university. It often helps to understand and explain complex things. Recently whilst looking on the Internet I came across Mo Gawdat, a Chief Business Officer for Google, who claims to have come up with [...]

It’s a Dog’s Life

When I got married to Andrew, 18 years ago, we used to fantasise about our future life together. Our dreams were inspired by River Cottage and featured an idyllic countryside location and some children, but largely focused on the animals that would live with us. We imagined hens, ducks, dogs and [...]
