When I took a flight over to Berlin recently, I actually listened to the safety instructions. I normally have my nose in a book, but this time I paid attention and thought about why we should put our own oxygen masks on before helping others.

‘Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.’ -Pablo Picasso

I read a lot… you must know that by now based on how much I write and refer to books in my blogs.

I recently attended a course about patience, through Buddhist teachings we were exploring anger. I don't consider myself an angry person, I don't get cross with people or argue, but I love a day course and feel like I can always be a little more patient!

First we need t...

I’ve been practicing yoga for 28 years, that’s about 10,220 days that yoga has been a part of my life. Why am I telling you this? It’s my birthday this month which always triggers a bit of reflection…

This photo was taken by my Mum who minutes before had been practicin...
