Motivation – Thursday 21st May 2020

This week has been highly productive and great fun. But last night my inner-saboteur kicked in. Now it could’ve been something to do with having a cup of (decaf) coffee for the first time since Sunday (I’m sure it hasn’t helped) but it’s more likely my mind wants to fuck up my happiness. I’ve beenContinue reading “Motivation – Thursday 21st May 2020”

Motivation – Mental Health Awareness Week

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. And the theme is – yes, you’ve guessed it – kindness. Kindness comes in all shapes and sizes. It may be something we do or show towards others.

Biggest anticipated challenge of the day: fighting the fatigue. How am I going to tackle this? Going to the gym. MakingContinue reading “Monday Motivation 9th March 2020”
