The Power of Movement

As a child you’re constantly moving, whether it be on the playground, mandatory PE lessons, after school clubs or playing with friends. The benefits of childhood movement are widely recognised not only physically but also mentally. Scientist’s regard physical activity as a useful tool to help maintain mental wellbeing in a number [...]

Battling Busyness

I’ve been so busy recently Hubbers! I wrote a few weeks ago about all my various travels around the country. And, as an update, I have now fully returned to my London base (and back to my bed which I always sorely miss when I am away)… but the busyness continues. [...]

Learning from Children

Tim and I, along with our colleague Russ, have been working in a school over the last few weeks – recording podcasts, and this week filming TV, with some delightful primary school pupils. It’s been a long while since I have been able to spend this much time with children. Whilst [...]

A Friendly Valentine

I have now been single for one year. And, as I have written about before, I’m very content with that. Yesterday was Valentine’s Day… potentially a day that has a greater impact on single people than those in relationships. Whilst couples may exchange cards, gifts and messages of love (I just [...]

My Best Bits

I’m leaving! I’m writing this blog with just 5 working days left with Sally here at the Happynesshub in our children’s television and emotional wellbeing bubble. What a delight it has been. For the past 15 months (minus the couple I was in India), I have learned more than I ever [...]

Managing Worry

Worrying has always been easy for me ever since I was a small child. But a few years ago, my mindset shifted when I realised that being anxious was about trying to force an outcome over which I had no control. It also took away valuable mental energy I would need for problem solving. So I [...]

Learning to Adapt

I’ve been having somewhat of a rollercoaster of a couple of weeks… On Friday 18th January I hopped on a train to Bournemouth to spend the weekend with around 50 of my relatives. On the 20th I returned to London, met Tim and got straight back in the car to head to Bristol [...]

New Year, Same You

It’s 3pm on the 1stof January. I have been horizontal for almost the entire day and we are half way through Four Weddings and a Funeral when my best friend Leah says ‘Shall I read you a poem Pandora Sykes has written?’ Pandora Sykes is a writer, journalist and podcaster (I am [...]

Flourishing Together

It’s that very funny time between Christmas and New Year. The ‘January’ sales have started (even though January hasn’t) and, for many, this is a time to spend with loved ones, whether they are near or far. And so, as a little follow-up from the blog I wrote a couple of [...]

Working on Ilana

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!! Can you tell I really like Christmas? Well, I actually just really like December. London always looks so pretty (the Oxford Street window displays are at their finest), there’s that frosty bite in the air, there are decorations everywhere and people just become [...]
