Searching for your perfect match

During a recent visit with a single, forty-something friend of mine, the following question came up during our discussions (as I knew it would… as it always does…): “When you met your future husband, did he meet all your preconceived requirements for a perfect life partner?” Of course, I tried to steer the discussion in [...]

Sensory seeking or Sensory avoiding?

When I met my husband years ago, I was introduced to the world of a practical, DIY, go-getter who doesn’t hesitate to dirty his hands to get the job done.  Initially, I'd get very excited at the prospect of tackling a new project around the house.

Lunchtime is holy time

We’re all guilty on this one.  We’ve all done it.  The quick desk-snacking, the in-between-meeting munching, the one-finger-on-the-email, one-hand-on-the-toasted-sandwich typing.  Lunchtime has become a myth in the modern workplace.  With deadlines looming, workloads expanding and performance appraisals around the corner, we all know the feeling … there just isn’t time to take lunch!   Today [...]

Forget About New Year’s Resolutions

That's right, forget about New Year's Resolutions.  Try Reflective Practice instead.   Forget the pressure for everything to be perfect and to change all your bad habits when the calendar flips over to January. Instead of New Years’ Resolutions I’ve taken to a Reflective Practice for 2018. This is a more gentle exercise to reflect [...]
