We’ve been taught for decades that being stressed is normal.

We live our lives lurching from mini-break to mini-break, from this holiday to the next. Life carries such an intensity now. We’re all exhausted, we’re all stressed.

We’ve all felt it. The external, invisible power that drives us to do things we don’t really want to, just ‘in case we miss out’. All it takes is a blink, and suddenly our lives are full of over stimulation and information overload. We’re bombarded with marketing messages that tell us all the things that are [...]

Do you wish your life was simpler? Here’s what you need to know: Most of us have been taught that we have to push ourselves in order to be able to achieve anything significant. The old saying: ‘No pain – no gain’ has morphed into ‘No stress – no success’. We’re driven to achieve, to succeed [...]

You can escape them too … but without all the hullabaloo. I used to be a corporate executive. I ticked the boxes I was supposed to tick, I climbed the ladder and I reached the pinnacle. I spent every day running around, looking after everyone else and making sure everyone was OK. During the day, I [...]

The world always continues to turn. No matter what is happening, no matter what you do, no matter how integral to a process or system, job or outcome you think you are, it will turn whether you are there or not. That’s not easy to read, I know, but I’ve experienced it first hand. I spent [...]

Life is tense right now. The world was thrown into chaos – en masse and without warning. Life was ‘normal’ … and then in the blink of an eye we were thrown into this void of uncertainty. A big, black, bottomless hole suddenly appeared in front of us – daring us to challenge it. We’re all [...]

Uncertainty. It’s like a massive black void sitting right in front of us. It’s wide and gaping and terrifying. … What if we take a step in the wrong direction? … What will that mean? … How will it look? … What will people think? We’re so afraid to step out of line, to get things [...]

Life. It’s messy, noisy and complex. It’s demanding, confusing and exhausting. It’s so easy to look around you and feel like you’re not keeping up – like everyone else is achieving and moving forwards and you’re stuck, sitting still or going round in circles.
