Stripes: my newest Tiny-Huge Life-Changing Practice
I’ve been waking regularly thinking about stripes. My mind was very focused on all the things I had to do, all the bookings in my calendar - the black stripes. I noticed that this focusing on the stuff to do felt like pressure and was resulting in feelings of overwhelm that needed to be shifted before I could start my day. I wanted to start my day in a lighter way. After all, overwhelm is optional and it’s definitely not how I move through the world at my best.And also, I like the stuff in my calendar! I put it there after all. This feeling of heaviness needed to be gently rebelled against.I started to play with focusing on the space between the obligations - the white stripes.

Discovering Ease: How Small Actions Lead to Big Changes
Ever felt overwhelmed and craved inner peace and ease? Of course you have - that’s why you’re here! In this week’s episode, I share a heartfelt story from a road trip that led to an epiphany - a profound moment of deep ease, a cocktail of pure gratitude and an overwhelming sense of rightness.My experiences have led me to understand the beauty and power in committing to finding more ease and joy in life. But the path isn't strewn with grand gestures or drastic changes. It's the small actions, the everyday practices like neutral noticing that can reset our nervous systems, allowing us to respond rather than react emotionally. It's about taking the time to pause, breathe, and recognizing that we deserve ease. Support the showThe One Minute Marke - get my free one minute audio for immediate relief from overwhelm.

What if there was a way you could reclaim your joy and revitalize your life? This episode is explores how the habit of prioritising ourselves can lead to a markedly improved life, both personally and professionally.

From Survival Mode to Skilful Living: Reinterpreting the Effects of Pressure

From Survival Mode to Skilful Living: Reinterpreting the Effects of Pressure
Reflecting on my experiences managing massive crowds at the Glastonbury Festival, I've realised it's a perfect parallel to how we often react to everyday pressures. In emergency situations, we instinctively activate survival mode - remaining calm, clear-minded, and able to act quickly. But when this same system is applied to daily tasks, we can end up feeling overwhelmed, locked into rigid thinking patterns. Could there be a different way to navigate the pressures of daily life? Tune in as we delve into the effects of pressure on our mental and physical health and how we might transition from mind-based living to a more skilful way of managing pressure. Support the showThe One Minute Marke - get my free one minute audio for immediate relief from overwhelm.
