WE are now officially at the end of the first quarter of 2019-so how's it been for you?

To write or not to write…THAT is the question!

Indecisiveness...it's a tricky one. It's not procrastination, its not laziness or stubborness. It is simply an inability to make a decision and it can happen for a number of reasons.

Daily journaling…what’s the point?

Daily journaling is not new—of course it isn't! We have written stuff down since the beginning of time for loads of different reasons and following the launch of our first online course I have had a few questions about why writing and journaling really works and what the real point of it all is, and another question about the difference between journaling and keeping a diary.

Are you ready to make some changes?

Our first FREE online course has just launched (yay!) and already people are signing up and enjoying the benefits of (something free obviously—what's not to love!?) but also the benefits of a daily writing practice and how journaling can really help to change things for the better.

What’s stopping you?

When I work with clients to get clarity and make a plan to achieve new things we always go through the well tried and tested SWOT test. It may be old fashioned but it works and I use it all the time. We look at our strengths, weaknesses, opportunities for change and threats and while we are always pretty good at looking at our weaknesses and can usually spot an opportunity that will help us, the strengths and threats bit of the formula often causes us problems and keeps us stuck.

Seven Day Writing Challenge-Day 5

So many of us want to make changes, set some new goals and achieve great things, and yet we never seem to have TIME to do it! We can come up with all sorts of reasons why we can't do it and then wonder why everyone else seems to be smashing their goals and we are still stuck where we are.

Seven Day Writing Challenge-Day 2

Capturing an emotion in words makes it feel more real. We can’t change things if we don’t acknowledge them. It’s easy to acknowledge what we are thinking but it’s not always easy to accept how we FEEL. And writing about our feelings is often very hard-BUT...by writing down how you FEEL you will become more comfortable with how your emotions can impact on and influence your ideas and plans. This is very important as we start to set goals.

Seven Day Writing Challenge-DAY 1

Congratulations! You have signed up for seven days of inspiration, motivation and creative visualisation that I really hope will help you to get some clarity into your life and focus on YOU and YOUR goals for the year ahead.

Get ready for the Seven Day Challenge!

I hope you are reading this because you are planning to sign up for our Seven Day Writing Challenge which kicks off tomorrow! January is a tricky month-we feel we HAVE to make changes because everyone else is, but if we are really honest with ourselves all we really want to do is eat biscuits and watch Netflix!

Make plans with our seven day challenge

On Tuesday January 15 we launch the first ever Write Your Life Seven Day Writing Challenge and we would LOVE to have you onboard!

Five reasons why writing every day is a REALLY good idea!

I know for a FACT that by taking part in daily writing practices you can make significant and lasting change, and I know this because I have done it myself.

Why I NEVER make New Year Resolutions!

This is the bleakest, darkest time of the year and the last thing any of us should be doing is making it any harder than it needs to be. Why punish ourselves? If you really want to start new diets/exercise regimes/stop eating biscuits/kick the Netflix habit into touch (Really? Are you sure?!-in January??) then who am I to say otherwise but be kind to yourself because so many New Year Resolutions fall at the first hurdle and  then we are all crippled with feelings of failure. Change is all about timing-January does not HAVE to be YOUR time.

Let’s get specific…what do YOU REALLY want for Christmas and 2019?

Specificity or the quality of being clear and exact is so important when we want to make change because if we are too broad or vague when we talk about our ideas and write down our goals, it is will much harder to work out what we really need to do to achieve those all important changes.

Get your sass back with our NEW course!

Five FAST ways to journal your way to AWESOME!

Audit, clear and set goals

An audit is an investigation, and part of the Write Your Life formula is all about investigating and researching our lives to see what really works well and what doesn’t.

Positivity, happiness and confidence – that’s what YOU need!

I am a positivity, happiness and confidence coach and I specialise in working with women who want to make BIG changes and re-design their lives - one sentence at a time.

Explore, inspire and question your plans

Daily bursts of journaling or writing will do more than simply sow the seeds of change-a daily writing ritual can keep us focussed, on track and inspired as we move towards new goals. By committing to a daily writing or journaling exercise we set a clear intention and if we do it in the morning, then the effect can be even more empowering as it really sets us up for the day.

Clear the clutter and value your life

A big part of making our life positive and fulfilled comes from what inspires us to make changes in the first place.

Too busy? Really?

In yesterday's Sunday Times Style Magazine, India Knight (one of my favourite writers) tackled a subject that really resonated with me - the subject was busyness and her column was spot on. She has inspired me to write about this from a coaching perspective.

Seven tips for journaling success

It is a FACT that only about three per cent of us ever bother to write down our goals, dreams, hopes and aspirations for the future. Those of us who do achieve great things and make sure our plans and goals become realities. Those of us who don't stay pretty much stuck.

Are you living your best life?

Life is basically a series of events and choices isn’t it? Some stuff you can control, most of it you can’t and sometimes things happen without us even realising it! We are all facing something all the time-whatever age or stage we are at and some of us appear to handle things really well while ...
