I am a planner, I always have been. Putting pen to paper helps me to commit to my goals, my dreams my aspirations. And it has to be on paper, and it has to be somewhere visible. I am a massive fan of the Leonie Dawson Planners, and I use these to help plan my…

Yep it’s that time of year again, where as well as the accumulating stress of christmas we also have an impending new year getting closer and closer…what are we going to give up, what are we going to do different, what are we going to resolve to achieve before the year is up? Now you will…

OK…so we are all counting down to Christmas now, everywhere you look there are aisles full of festive treats and adverts reminding you to buy now to get your sofa in time for Christmas…it happens every year, but still it is slightly grating…when lets face it…we are still in October….well only just!!! But one of…

Sorry to break it to you folks but there are just 80 days left of 2016…YES JUST 80 DAYS…shocking right? Where has the year gone? It only feels like a few weeks ago I was promoting my book New Year, Same You which is all about ditching the resolutions and acting in the hear and…

Ready to face all that 2015 has to throw at you, or are you going to roll over and sleep off that hangover tomorrow and defer your new years resolutions until Monday instead? What’s it gonna be this year? Giving up booze/smoking/sugar (delete as appropriate) Losing at least 2 stone/getting back into last summers jeans…
