A Year of Mindfulness – 22 – Stress

After a week off from the mindfulness challenge (I forgot to pick a card out and only realised on Friday, so decided to knock it on its head for that week), I'm back and ready with a great task this week! This week's task was designed to take a step back from stress and lessen… Continue reading A Year of Mindfulness – 22 – Stress

The 5 Minute Coffee Corner

The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: June #4

Happy Humpday everybody! What a week it's been - there's been a lot going on, but more on that soon!

The Corona Diaries Week 12: Finale

Can you believe we've reached week 12 of The Corona Diaries?

Anyway, I was supposed to pick a new fruit out each day and study it. Look at its appearance,… Continue reading A Year of Mindfulness – 21 – Fruit

I was supposed to be attentive to moments when I express a belief or strong opinion, make a mental note of the belief (or write it down), and then take… Continue reading A Year of Mindfulness – 20 – Beliefs

The Corona Diaries

The Corona Diaries Week 11: Craving

I wrote last week about how lockdown’s slowly coming to an end, and at the time of writing this, the UK has surpassed 40,000 deaths from Coronavirus. Over 40,000 people. That's more than the population of an entire country (Liechtenstein to be precise).I don't know about you but it feels as though Coronavirus and lockdown… Continue reading The Corona Diaries Week 11: Craving
