Power Planner Workshop

Conquer procrastination with my Power Planner workshop. I'm running this workshop because I realise we all need some direction when planning our goals and the steps we need to take to reach them. Maybe you're not even much of a planner, maybe you are but feel a bit lost right now. I've spoken to people who are waiting until Covid-19 ends before they start focusing on the things they want out of life, work and business. For me, it's just not feasible. We don't know when this will end, but that doesn't mean we can't work on our goals…

Journal prompts for self-care

When was the last time you wrote in your journal? I used to write in mine when I was angry or upset, when I needed to offload. Now I write in there daily. It's a great way for me to connect with myself on a deeper level. Having a deep connection with myself has been important as I learn to better care for and love myself after trauma. A huge part of my self-care is journaling and it makes a huge difference on my emotional wellbeing. Having the opportunity to vent, offload and disclose my thoughts and feelings in…

Keeping it together while the world falls apart

The last 12 months have challenged us all in ways we never expected. I've teetered near the edge many times... but somehow I'm managing to keep it together while the world feels like it is falling apart. So this is our new normal. It's a year into the pandemic, and we're still wearing masks. We're still working from home and staying away from our loved ones, and still social distancing. How did we get here? In the UK, we first went into lockdown in March 2020. I didn't know we'd still be here now, but did anybody? We were…

The healing journey: what it means to heal

And this is what is most important about the healing journey. You don't receive a certificate in the post, congratulating you on your efforts. It's in the small things, doing your food shopping without anxiety, calling a friend when you feel triggered, practicing self-care when you'd usually spiral. This is how we know the work we're doing is working. We're breaking down old coping mechanisms and cycles, and creating something that feels better in its place.

Be on the right side of history.

Black Lives Matter All the time. Every day. I feel a little overwhelmed by the online world sometimes, don't you? But it's been so necessary this year. Everything is heightened because we need to pay attention to the world around us. We're being invited to be on the right side of history. It really feels like 2020 is the year where everything is brought into the open so we can examine it as a worldwide community and let's face it; some of what we're looking at isn't pretty. Racism is difficult for everybody to talk about but we must talk…

5 Good Reasons to Start a Blog

You're thought about it before but maybe now is the time to start a blog. Sure, you could argue the blogging industry is oversaturated but despite that, I still believe there's room for you. How so? Because the blogging world hasn't experienced your unique perspective yet. When I first began blogging, I didn’t take it seriously. I didn’t make much of an effort and I didn’t blog with any clear focus or plan. I just liked writing and that’s what I did, but over the years my outlook has changed and now I know what an asset a blog…

5 Ways to Overcome Impostor Syndrome

Feeling like a fraud who will be found out any day now? You are not alone. Impostor Syndrome does not discriminate. You could be highly qualified and experienced to do your work, write that book or launch that blog, and still, a little voice will whisper "you're a fraud!" I've said before that social media is a highlight reel and there is often much more going on behind the scenes than what we see in our news feed. Yet, you're comparing yourself to this. I remind myself of this whenever I catch my insecurities taunting my ego because someone…

How to use life as writing inspiration

I think writing about your life is courageous, actually. Inspirational? Sure, but also incredibly brave. When we write about our lives, we face the truth on paper and our screens. When we share it with the world, we're putting our experiences out for judgement or approval, neither of which we expected. And life writing can come in many forms, right? Blog posts, social media captions, a memoir, a downloadable information pack for your mailing list or even our About Me page on your website. People have a real interest in learning all about the lives of other people, no…
