Gratuitous Fiji shot

If this sounds very inviting, then set aside the next seven minutes and just relax. If finally got around to editing some hammock swaying/waves lapping video from Fiji into the most relaxing meditation. Imagine you’re on a tropical island (Fiji will definitely do), with or without cocktail in hand (I’m going for the cocktail) and surrender to your senses. Getting … Read More

You know that feeling – you’re lying back in a hammock, cool breeze caressing your face, great new book waiting to be read, the waves gently lapping the beautiful sandy beach – perhaps your even on some tropical isle and a waiter is about to bring you something to drink that’s cool and exotic and tastes oh so good. And … Read More

I may or may not be very wise, but I reckon there’s only one place to find wisdom – inside yourself. If you’re looking anywhere else you’re going to be disappointed. We don’t get wise through reading bookings (any more than from consulting fortune cookies), as I wrote about last week when I was grappling with our son’s ‘diagnosis’ of delayed … Read More

Lately I seem to be thinking (and writing) in song titles (eg my last post ‘Rainy Days and Mondays’). I’m listening to music more, creating my own daydreaming space. I’m a believer. The Monkees sweet song doesn’t really make sense, but then daydreams aren’t supposed to. Released an eon ago (the year I was born), the catchy tune somehow nestled … Read More

The lazy guide to being enough in 2015

I have a new favourite word –LOLL.  Thankfully it’s not my word of the year for 2015 (or I wouldn’t get much done), but it is my word of the moment. I lolled Christmas Day (our main celebration was Christmas Eve and while there wasn’t much lolling going on in preparation, it was all worth it). I could say I … Read More

I’m on holidays as I publish this (oh I’m sorry to make you jealous) – enjoying that sense of space we find so hard to find in our everyday lives. What do we look forward to when we go on holidays? Mostly doing NOTHING. I can’t get away from the theme right now that what we need most when it … Read More

Do you need a pep talk?

We all need to talk ourselves up, since we often spend most of the time talking ourselves down. But we don’t do we? We allow ourselves a moment of satisfaction when something succeeds, we might give ourselves a sideways approving glance when we are dressed up to go somewhere special, or we might even give ourselves a secret high-five when … Read More

How yoga play can help your child at school

How-Yoga-Play-Can-Help-Your-Child-at-School-733x440

The last thing most kids need on top of a competitive school curriculum (and often equally competitive extra-curriculars) is another highly structured class. But yoga ‘play’ brings fun, focus, and learning into young lives, much like the benefits we adults can gain from ‘serious’ yoga practice. Great yoga teachers play and facilitate more than they instruct—that’s the secret—the learning comes … Read More

When I was a kid my parents made me hose the lawn for half an hour a day.  This was when using sprinklers was banned (or at least restricted) and having a lush lawn was a sign of suburban success, or at least of keeping up with the Joneses in some small (and extremely cheap) way. And there’s nothing like … Read More

Sometimes you are so proud….. When your 10 year old daughter, who loves loom bands (like all 10 year old girls) and has a friend who has given her a few to make, says she can wait until her birthday – in three months time – for her friend to give her a kit and bands (as her friend has … Read More

On minute meditation on overcoming fear

So it’s Friday 13th, and I’m telling fear to fug off! Well I’m trying – I reckon just the act of standing up to fear, looking it in the face and telling it that while you are still afraid you won’t let it scare you, is the first step in banishing it for good. I’ve heard it said that daring … Read More
