Shhhhh….. Napping Happening here!
“Reading and naps, two of life’s greatest pleasures, go especially well together.” ― Will Schwalbe I love Boxing Day. I don’t cook a thing. We survive on the leftovers of the Christmas Feast.

Today’s a Self-Care Kind Of Day

10 Simple Hacks For Creating More ‘Me’ Time
“In truth I suspect that merely slowing down is not a very satisfying answer. What I need has less to do with my pace of life than my peace of life. At any speed, I crave a deep and lasting inner peace. And if it’s solace I’m after, I don’t need to pace myself like […]

30 Things That Changed When I Took An Unplugged Day Every Week
“My imagination functions much better when I don’t have to speak to people.” ~ Patricia Highsmith In January this year I made an important decision. I have a life where I am almost always on call. Always connected and reachable. Always busy. Even though I work for myself and love my work, and I […]
A Great Weekend for Rest, Integration and Inspiration!
“S.T.O.P. = Start To Open Possibilities” ~ Richie Norton “And so taking the long way home through the market I slow my pace down. It doesn’t come naturally. My legs are programmed to trot briskly and my arms to pump up and down like pistons, but I force myself to stroll past the stalls and […]

The Feeling Of A Free Sunday
“Rest and be thankful.” ~ William Wordsworth I worked yesterday. Just a few clients. Just a few jobs. My second-last Sunday of work for this year. But there was no blog post to write. No social media. No emails. When I finished work, mid-afternoon, there was time for journalling and planning and a big […]
In My Happy Place!
“The cure for anything is salt water — sweat, tears, or the sea.” ~ Isak Dinesen My Soul Sanctuary Retreat begins today. Before my work begins, before my week kicks off, I have this. The beach, the dawn, the rising sun, the smell of salt and the foam of waves. I have my husband’s […]
