Musings on a walk

My morning walks seem to be giving life a holding space where lots of other certainties have gone.

The first thing I realised as I was walking this morning, is that like the politicians, I have prioritised economics over things like sustainability. 

When I had kids I added them to my life so it was work + family. 

Then I had a breakdown so my life equation was then work + family + health/well-being. 

Now COVID-19 has got me thinking I want to add in more; work + family + health/well-being + sustainability + creativity….  Here’s what I was thinking as I recorded the podcast this morning:

I was talking to another friend and we were both acknowledging how fast time seemed to be going even though we are less busy.  As I was sitting in the garden listening to the birds in the sun it came to me that now life is less busy but more full and I like that.

You can watch here on Youtube or listen on a podcast to find out more about what I mean.

I hope this week has found you well.

Coach, author, podcaster, facilitator, Yoga and psychology teacher, learner

I have over 30 years of experience and qualification in various therapeutic and meditation/mindfulness based approaches. I work with change. Some changes we chose, others happen to us.  Sometimes we know we want to change but don't know how. Sometimes we don't want to change but external events or people are forcing us to change. The menopause, children leaving home, the end of a relationship or job, becoming a parent, coming out, bereavement are just some of the personal changes I support people with. I also work with people who want to make changes to their life and wider world in response to social issues such as Covid, the climate crisis and racial, sexual and gender inequalities. Times are changing whether we want them to or not and we need to be nimble, agile, curious and open in order to part of the new story emerging. Work with me to get clear on what matters to you, what makes your heart sing and what kind of future you want for yourself and those you love. It is possible to live differently, get in touch to explore how.
