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 [...]

Tuesday – A Happy Diary Day

TODAY I’M FEELING… I'm lucky, I’m generally a happy person.  Not a 'glass half full' or a 'glass half empty' kind of person. More a 'take the damn glass and drink whatever’s in it' kind of person. Head-of-Happiness-Sally often asks me how I'm always happy. So, I thought I'd try and figure that out [...]

A Beginner’s Thoughts on Mindfulness

Last week on one of the hottest June days of the last 40 years, I found myself packed into a crowded hall as part of the 1000-strong crowd who were audience to Jon Kabat-Zinn, regarded by many as the father of mindfulness in the Western world. We heard about how in 1979 he [...]

Wellbeing in the Workplace

  Do we all have a right to feel happy at work? Is it important? And what responsibility should a company take when it comes to our emotional wellbeing in the workplace? Last week I was lucky enough to attend the Enterprising Women Summit at the Institute of Directors. I was speaking on [...]

Battling to Be in the Moment

  I’d been invited by the fabulous team at Warwick Castle for a weekend’s event, and the launch of their Wars of the Roses live jousting show. Staying in a knight’s themed wood log cabin (brilliant!), visiting the castle dungeons (petrifying), I was highly excited as I embarked upon my trip – FYI, [...]

Turning Happiness Inside Out

  You may recall my blog earlier this year about the balance between focusing on internal vs external happiness. I’d been concentrating for so long on the internal, I wondered whether I’d forgotten that external factors do play a role. So, in true Sally style, I have thrown myself wholeheartedly into changing the [...]

A Different Train Of Thought

  It had been a bad afternoon. I'd had some bad news at work, I was feeling tired, and things just felt... bad. As I sat on the train travelling back to London, I thought about my work problems and I felt sad. I felt I'd failed and made wrong decisions. I could [...]

His Name Is Reo

  There’s a guy in my life right now who brings me endless joy. I only have to look at him and my heart implodes with love. Unfortunately it would be illegal for me to marry this guy because he’s of the canine variety and churches don’t allow dogs. Anyway – that’s a [...]
