The Body Scan
When is the last moment you took to switch off and check in with your beautiful body?
Set some time aside for you, get comfy and give your mind and body a reboot with my body scan meditation.
“Through practising body scan awareness meditation, we can greatly reduce the detrimental effects of stress and make our working lives pleasant and enjoyable.”

Act as if !
Have you ever you found yourself at a fork in the road? It may appear that success is on one road, and a difficult road on the other side. Guess which one us humans often we choose by default! The comfy one, which does not include risk is usually the one we, as humans (full of self-doubt) choose- and could be seen as the negative route! This can then become a cycle of doubt, other people doubt us, we doubt ourselves, and so it goes on.
How about ‘faking it until we make it?’ I’ve used this option along my life’s journey and had amazing results. Listen in and hear how this attitude can really make a difference to your life and how you can apply it too!
The Affirmative Use of NOT!
Using questions in the negative may be a great way for you to get exactly what you want, at home and in your professional life!
You’re only as good as your day off!
“You’re only as good as your day off! What happens in the workplace when a leader is absent?
Does your ship sail when you are not around? Listen to how my experiences from years ago, still serve me today.”
The Perfectly Imperfect Me
For me one of the aspects of being human that meant the most for me in my life so far (aside from being a parent, father, companion, son, friend) is being with myself -- it's been to accept my imperfections.
As you see in the photo of KinTsugi art which is Japanese for golden joinery. Kin means “golden”and Tsugi means rejoining and it’s the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise. The metaphor for me is seeing our imperfections and aspects of ourselves as something beautiful, original and unique, rather than hiding them and trying to be perfect. When I discovered this delightful philosophy, it struck a chord in me.
