Overwhelm and burnout: The ONE thing worth knowing that can stop that cycle.

Text placeholder.png
Earlier on today, I was reading an article about an entrepreneur who is up to some really cool things in Brighton, UK. This got my mind idly thinking back to when I used to live there, which led on to nostalgic feelings for my time there, and then before you know it, I'm on Rightmove browsing 3 bedroom properties in Hove!
 
Imagine if I didn't know that just because you have a thought, doesn't mean you have to act on it?
 
That's how it happens though isn't it? We have a...

Hope you've had a good January? Here's what I've been up to...

Do you know that feeling when an idea pops in your head, quite unexpectedly, but makes total sense to you about what to do next? The long winter break gave me much pause for thought about the way I work, and what came to mind with such clarity was this - I don't want to work on my own anymore, or rather, I want to create something with other people.

What was interesting is that it didn't come from a place of...

Rest, Reflect and Review

900x600 rest, reflect, and review..png

This week’s podcast episode is the last one of 2018, and so I decided to do something slightly different to wrap it up. 

Last year, I led a workshop for Cambridge Business Women to help them get reflective about their year they’d just and enjoy being in a space of feeling creative and gently excited about the year ahead.  I was delighted to hear that people found it really useful - so I thought it would be useful to share the workshop content with you too - call it...

When feeling blue is more than just a 'bad day'

900x600 what to do when you're in a bad mood.png

Bad moods, thought storms, down in the dumps.  They all point to the same thing - not feeling great. 

When we're in this state of mind, have you noticed that EVERYTHING seems to look annoying/frustrating/generally rubbish?

At this point, I could say something along the lines of the fact that thoughts do change moment to moment, so if you don't like how you feel, it's OK because another one will be along in just a moment.

But what if it really seems like one bad mood thought is being...

Series 2: Episode 6 Creating Content Consistently (how to get out of your own way)

Consistency with content.png

Would you like to be much more consistent when it comes to creating content?

As a mindset coach to entrepreneurs and small business owners, the conversation I frequently hear is this:

"I know I should be writing blogs/recording videos/being more active on social media, but I just can't seem to get going with it. Help!"

The good news is, everyone has the ability to 'get going' with it, but when you're not there yet, it feels incredibly frustrating (and worrying), because if there's one thing...

Waking Up Feeling Exhausted? (This explains why)

WAKE UP FEELING EXHAUSTED_.png

Do you wake up in the morning feeling exhausted, even though you went to bed at a reasonable time? Then you find yourself mentally calculating how many hours you’ve had, telling yourself tonight will be an early night?

Waking up feeling tired before the day’s even started has to be one of the most frustrating things. The motivation isn’t there to get things done, the urge for sugar and carbs is high, and you feel like you’re in go-slow mode. No one sees the best of us...

Superstitions, Insights, and Playing Better Tennis!

900x600 Superstitions, insights and playing better tennis.png

Don't walk under ladders. Always maintain eye contact when you 'cheers' someone. See a magpie, salute it. 

Wikipedia describes superstitious thinking as "any belief or practice that is considered irrational: for example, if it arises from ignorance, a misunderstanding of science or causality."

So what helps us to 'see through' superstitious thinking? The answer is - insights. 

In the coaching work that I do, I often ask people about insights; what insights have you had since...

Tired Of Trying To 'Think Positive' All The Time?

900x600 tired of trying to think positively all the time_.png
Tired of trying to 'think positive' all the time? 
 
That's understandable. Trying to think positive all the time or change your negative thoughts into positive ones is a losing game. 
 
The reality is we don't get to choose what thoughts pop into our head. They just do. That's the nature of thought. If you are a living and breathing human, you will experience thousands of thoughts each and every day (it's been estimated up to 70,000-80,000 thoughts a day), of which some...

Thoughts Are Not A 'Call To Action'

900x600 Your Thoughts Are Not A Call To Action.png

Have you listened to The Happy Healthy Entrepreneur podcast?

It's all about supporting entrepreneurs, from all walks of life and at all stages in this business, who’ve had enough of the work all hours, keep striving for more – messages out there, and are really looking (searching even) for a fresh, new way of approaching their business, and life (we can’t separate the two), so they can get back to that feeling they had in mind, all along really, when they decided to venture...
