Don't Mocha Me!

Today I was feeling a bit blue, and had a headache, so I took a couple of Paracetamol and decided I'd fill a flask with hot water, and take some hot-chocolate powder down to my friend's beach hut, and sit in the deck-chair and just watch the oc... Read more

Just do something!

Saturday, August 15, 2015      12 comments

I feel blah today! Maybe I have some virus incubating - that is sometimes preceded by a dip in mood. I have a whole weekend free of work - so what is there to be blah about? I am facing a drop in salary - quite a large drop actually (ar... Read more

Lunch Break Adventure not working for me!

Friday, August 14, 2015      6 comments

Today's suggestion was just to do 'something' at lunch time. It just doesn't work in my work-place. I ate my lunch standing up in the kitchen with one ear open for the man I was looking after (who is nil-by-mouth). Sigh. This '... Read more

Lunch Break Adventure - Day 3

Thursday, August 13, 2015      8 comments

Today the recommendation is to book a pamper session in the lunch-break - a pedicure, haircut, massage. Well - that ain't gonna happen either! Does ANYONE work somewhere that allows them lunch-breaks these days? I suppose maybe a bank, or ... Read more

Lunch Break Adventure - Day 2

Wednesday, August 12, 2015      11 comments

Today's task was to 'step away from the computer!' I didn't get the chance to do this........... or maybe I didn't create the chance to do this? We'd been in a team meeting from 10am - 1.3pm - then I had the minutes to type up, and lots... Read more

Here I go............. on another 30-day journey of self-improvement! Today the task was to 'take it outside' (lunch, that is!) and I did! I was working in an office today where people pop out to the shop for something to eat, then eat it ... Read more

Tip Top!

I have completed the 30 day Balanced Life Challenge - and blogged about each day - I don't know that I've made any huge changes to my life - but the benefit of concentrating on one, self-improving, thing each day has been great. It helps me to ... Read more

Day 29 of the 30 day Balanced Life Challenge

Sunday, August 09, 2015      9 comments

Today's advice is to become a multi-tasker. At first glance, this seems to go against all the other advice about paying attention to one thing at a time and not getting over-whelmed. However, what it's really talking about is finding opportuni... Read more

Stretching it a bit............

Saturday, August 08, 2015      6 comments

Day 28 of the Balanced Life Challenge is to Stretch It Out! There's a link to a seated yoga routine - which I did, and enjoyed. I've been sitting at work much more than usual - I have more office-based tasks to do these days - and I ha... Read more

what're you doing for lunch?

Friday, August 07, 2015      9 comments

Today's Balanced Life Challenge is another of those that brought up a "that doesn't apply to me" reaction from me! I am SO wrong! It's called Revitalize Your Lunchbreak! My first thought was that I don't get a lunch-break. We don't hav... Read more

Today's Balanced Life Challenge activity is to plan an adventure! Well, my first reaction to this was that it didn't apply to me. But........ over breakfast I thought of two mini-adventures that often cross my mind, that I never act on... Read more

Live, Love - smell the roses

Today's Balanced Life Challenge task it to make an intention for the day. This one DID make me think. These days I tend to have no conscious intention other than getting through the day and sticking to my plan. It's true, I can just 'go... Read more
