It is life-changingly good. My job started getting stressful and I could feel anxiety crawling back around my skull as autumn approached so I started running again. Just a quick fifteen minutes off into the countryside and back before work. Nice. I mentioned it to a colleague who said he’d been meaning to join parkrun.… More

Night sweats

So they are back. Or they were back last night. Let’s not make this a regular thing please. I’m more and more convinced that work is keeping the anxiety at bay. I had a huge deadline at work to get a few reports done, so I spent all last week and most of the weekend… More

Some Post-Moonie Resources

So it seems like a mixture of Covid, Lockdown and the fact that we’re all a few years out, has resulted in a recent collection of resources. I consume them avidly, and am always adding to my collection. EDIT: I have moved them all to a new page now, as it is an ever expanding… More

The Window of Thanks

So I have this thing for gratitude, as I may have mentioned before. I have been working to encourage my mind, through a daily gratitude diary, to make a habit out of finding things to be grateful for. It has been very good for me, and as with everything beneficial, I wanted to share it.

Day 19: Nature

The New Year starts on the 10th doesn’t it?

I’ve long ago stopped pretending that I could make any new changes to my life on January 1st. Even in a Lockdown, new years day happens in a strange time of disorientation, alcohol and chocolate. Then the first Monday could count as a new start but the first week back at work is a bit… More

Day 18: Mindfulness and meditation

This title has been sitting as a draft article here for three weeks now! I felt like I couldn’t write about it until I had some magical meditational breakthrough to write about, until I realised that’s not happening any time soon. What has happened is a sudden explosion of community related tasks in the run… More

Day 17: Loving What is

Yes I’ve been avoiding this one, as it is massive. And a Sunday night on my own with a big Monday meeting tomorrow is a good opportunity to finally address it.

Day something or other: Dance!!

Oh my days. I did not realise that I have not danced for more than a year! We just had a staff zoom meeting, which was really positive. Because my love is fast asleep after his night shift, I have taken my meeting as quietly as possible in the living room, with headphones on. After… More
