Confession time…


Gareth and I have enjoyed watching Masterchef over the past few weeks for a bit of relaxing evening TV. We are not big TV watchers, preferring to watch films or box sets, but Masterchef has been especially welcome in these cold winter, and even snowy, evenings! We enjoy learning about new foods that we can […]

Niky is in bed with the flu. It is teaching her a valuable lesson. Sometimes you can be applying the most intentional, proactive and goal orientated approach to your personal health or any other aspect of your life…and then you get the flu!

Balanced Life or Burnout?


There is one thing for certain… We can’t have a healthy balanced life and Burnout at the same time. If we live a healthy balanced life, get sufficient rest and sleep; we avoid burnout. If we live an unbalanced, unhealthy life, we are heading in the direction of burnout. None of us wants to live a life that ends up […]

Did you notice the good or bad habits?


If you watched the replay of last weeks webinar, you’ll know that there are no such thing as good and bad habit loops, habit loops are just a pathway.
