    There’s a lot to be dealing with during this festive period – freezing cold weather, strike action, the rising cost of living, as well as getting ready for Christmas with presents to buy and wrap, food to shop for, gatherings to go to, work to squeeze in before the break plus everyday life to wrangle too!   So it’s not surprising it all gets a bit much. But how we can ease the pressure at this time of year when you feel the weight of tradition, of expectation from yourself as well as from other people?

Lovely nuggets of calm

Lovely nuggets of calm, soothing, nourishing thoughts. I love that the episodes are short and manageable and no annoying ads or sponsored products! Thank you Gabrielle.

Comfort

Well episode 37 I tend to jump back and forth and today made me laugh as I too would move home and the next day I’d have a dinner party as if I’d been living there for years! 11 months ago I moved in with my boyfriend who has major anxiety about packing or unpacking. What this has forced me to do is become less stressed and let go and now 3 days later if the weekend bag in still on the soda so what!! All I do is have my “comfort” bag a little back pack with my favourite magazine, journal, chocolate and coffee 3 in 1 travel size so all I need is a seat and hot water should I get delayed anywhere. Thank you for reminding me that this is part of self care and feeling safe!

Excellent content, so helpful.

I found Gabrielle’s podcast a few years ago during a time when I was really struggling with overthinking and ruminating. Her calming voice and practical advice were the start of a journey which led to me setting up my own blog and writing poetry. Writing has become my outlet when I never would never have considered myself a creative person before. I’m much better able to manage my overthinking tendencies, though I still return to Gabrielle for a refresher every now and then. I found her first interview format episode with Zabby on procrastination really helpful. Thank you Gabrielle.
