Happy New Year! We may still be facing challenging times but winter is a good time to rethink, recharge, reset and refresh every part of our lives and the best way to do that is to start writing stuff down. If like me you are […]
Everyone needs a special place to use for reflection, meditation, peace and quiet and focus and if you are a journaller, Life Editor or writer of any sort you will probably already have a quiet corner that you use as part of your daily routine. […]
I know I know…controversial but let’s get real about this stuff! I am all for positivity and I bloody love an affirmation BUT nobody has the capacity to be positive ALL the time and actually I am usually deeply suspicious of those who are. And […]
My plans for the rest of 2020 are taking shape in a new notebook with actions, desired outcomes and ideas for how I am going to make it all happen. I can’t make plans without writing stuff down.
Regular readers will know that I LOVE September. My ‘new year’ always starts this month rather than in January and I make autumn resolutions rather than the traditional New Year ones. This year, a reset and reframe in September is even more important and relevant […]
WE are all adjusting to some sort of normality. I am loathe to continually call this era ‘the new normal’ because it is ever changing, but one thing I do know is that there are many people going through some pretty serious stuff who need […]

Start your Lockdown Life Edit this weekend!

So much of what is going on at the moment is out of our control that it can be challenging to think too far ahead. There are many ‘what ifs’ and ‘maybes’ and staying calm is getting harder. Uncertainty breeds anxiety, and as we have […]
Of course we hope that our Life Edit In A Day event will still go ahead in May but…who knows?! But…there is no need to put your self development on hold! Luckily a journalling habit is a good, healthy one and something that is actually […]
I am thrilled to share with you some of the truly fantastic reviews that my book The Life Edit has received since it hit the shops at the end of last year. They are ALL five star reviews on Amazon and I am so proud […]
