At The End Of The Year, What Would You Like To Clear?

OK, so we’re nearing the end of the year. What would you like to clear? Be free from? Let go of?

How to Remember Your-Self in the Rush to Slow Down This Christmas

I know, I’ve mentioned the C word and we’re still in November. It’s to help you prepare for self-care, though. I promise.

Are You and Your Organisation Ready to Start Feeling Better?

Paying attention to our feelings, whether we like them or not, is a massive step towards creating positive mental health in ourselves and in our ‘communities’.
