Use it or lose it!

I must admit I’ve been a little off kilter lately. One reason being my hormone levels seem to be going a bit haywire (my age maybe?!) and also life throws some pretty fucking massive curve balls sometimes. Life can be unfairly hard and I’m getting a large dose of that seared into my consciousness at […]

Yoga for Confidence

Confidence is feeling good about yourself and believing in your abilities.  Confidence is also a feeling that get’s generated when you believe that you can do the task at hand (or when you put on those killer heels that make your calf’s look amazing!) If you believe that you are not capable, then you don’t feel confident and fear kicks.  […]

Do you know your core values?

If you want to know what your values are, then just take a look at your life because it’s a total reflection of them. Your values are the things that are important to you and that drive you. They are the things that you prioritise both consciously and unconsciously.  They are the things that will […]

I Heart Me

I can’t believe it’s March already! Last month was all about self-love and as part of that I read the book ‘I Heart Me’ by David Hamilton, which I really enjoyed. I found it particularity interesting hearing about it from a male perspective and a Scottish male perspective at that. It’s not a topic that […]

Do you love yourself?

If I was to ask you if you loved yourself, what would your answer be? Would the question itself make you feel uncomfortable because it brings up connotations of being arrogant?  Or would you have an opposite reaction and feel it’s just some lovey dovey nonsense?! Well, I can tell you that it’s neither of those things and […]

Why thinking positively is not always enough

I was teaching a Desire Map workshop at the weekend and there were some strong emotions that came up for some of the women that attended.  When you think about how you want to feel and realise that you aren’t and haven’t been feeling that way for some time, there can be sadness and pain […]

Lessons from Dumgoyne

‘What’s a Dumgoyne?’ you might be asking! It’s a bloody big hill just outside of Glasgow that I climbed at the weekend. As I was climbing the steep, narrow paths it occurred to me that the whole experience was a metaphor for life! Let me elaborate on that further for you…. Having done it before, […]

How curious are you?

I’m currently doing a 30 days to healthier living program throughout January that involves me not eating gluten, dairy, anything with added sugar, processed foods and alcohol! You might think I’m totally crazy for doing it but I’m actually finding it not that bad and I believe that it’s down to the attitude I have adopted towards […]

What is your purpose?

Do you feel you lack purpose in your life? In his book ‘Man’s Search for Meaning’ by Victor E. Frankl, Victor talks about the importance of having a purpose and meaning in life. Even in the worst circumstances imaginable, you can still find a purpose.  The book is one of the most powerful ever written. Victor […]

Why we all need hygge in our lives!

I’ve just finished reading The Little Book of Hygge by Miek Wiking which is all about hygge or ‘hoo-ga’ is its proper pronunciation. Miek Wiking is the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen which studies happiness and he thinks hygge might just be the magic ingredient that we are all missing. After reading […]
