February in reflection….

Well, here we are then- March!! 🐣 In reflection, February for me was a good month! I feel more organised, have more energy, and feel better mentally. I think my break away helped towards this. (See picture of Lisa in the wonderful bath!!) What have I accomplished to make me feel this way? Firstly, I’ve joined a new gym which I currently go 4 times a week. My progra...

Freddy Mercury and the swimming duck!!

I’ve just finished watching the Bohemian Rhapsody, the film about the band Queen and Freddy Mercury - Wow! such a poignant film- I loved it! Tinged with both elements of sadness and happiness of varying degrees within the film. What struck me though was that underneath the public persona of the happy go lucky, party animal, was major inner turmoil and angst. But what can we...

Are you caring enough?

The holiday season is upon us and I’m pleased to say I’m in holiday mode! Wow! I feel like I really need it this year, much more than others. I have been exceptionally busy, which is a good problem to have if you are self employed, but In collaboration with this years events, i think it’s taken it’s toll.

Cutting edge gut/brain health information

Wow! What can I say! Hot off the press! First day of the gut-brain health connection seminar today and I’m already blown away from the information I’ve been taught! As there is so much in both days, I’m going to share the knowledge over a number of blogs. The crux of the weekend was to share the now common knowledge that there is an inextricable link between your gut heal...

Conscious appreciation…

Conscious Appreciation Life brings about many a twist and turn, sometimes steady and relatively easy, other times testing our inner resolve to the full. I’d say currently it’s the latter for me. And it’s at times like these, that I fully appreciate the love and support of others, to get you through it. For most of us reading this, if we compare ourselves to much poorer countries, we ac...

Spreading the love……❤️

Bristol personal training, pilates
      I was driving up the motorway early this morning listening to Vanessa Feltz on radio 2. On her show, she has a section where people write in to give thanks to a special friend, or loved one. It's a really beautiful gesture. It got me thinking. How often do we actually take the time out to genuinely thank somebody or let them know you care? I know wh...

“What’s so great about bluebells?”

"What's so great about bluebells?" my son said grumpily, on our impromptu walk after school this week. What a question! Everyone loves bluebells I told him (who doesn't?). He was a reluctant companion as I'd given him no choice - it was imperative; I had to get on a walk to see the bluebells. I'd had a busy day and I really wanted to experience the peace and beauty of the short walk up our loc...

Optimal wellness 💪🏼💥

  This picture is taken from my perspective as I'm sat down on the downs in Bristol, after a lovely sunny short walk, taking in the fresh spring air and the last of the days warm rays. How life affirming! One of my acts towards getting myself back more wellness, is getting out more in the fresh air and walking. Not even power walking, just take in all the surroundings, enjoying lif...

Love, Gratitude and Wellness

Screen Shot 2015-06-14 at 21.50.44
Earlier this week I popped in to see my lovely mum & dad. When Mum saw me her facial expression lit up & you could see she was trying her hardest to smile. I could see it in her eyes that she was smiling though. Just that little glimmer of the old mum gave me great joy. I certainly felt like she recognised me. Little pleasures. Being loved & loving others has a huge impact on you...
