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.

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.

Write, believe, receive!

It is well documented that keeping a journal, diary or taking part in regular creative writing sessions can all help us to unravel our thoughts, give us clarity and help us to achieve short, medium and long-term goals that lead to positive changes in our lives. And yet only three per cent of us actually make time to WRITE down our goals-those of us who do write them down achieve great things and make profound and significant changes to our lives.
