Different clientele, same desires

Different clientele, same desires I’ve moved into a completely different zone. One without a Starbucks on every corner, rife with yoga studios and organic grocers. Here I’m still in the land of cut-price supermarkets and meeting for a cup of tea in the market cafe.  Copious gluten-free offerings and food fads are a thing of the future. As regards health, the main topics of conversation seem to be doctors and hospital appointments and...

I want what she’s having

    I want what she’s having. I can talk about the Yamuna system until I’m blue in the face – the best thing is to experience it. This week I’m asking those of you who have tried Yamuna Body Rolling and/or a Yamuna Table Treatment to offer advice and encouragement to those who have never tried it. I’ll start the ball rolling (pun fully intended):   Wear close fitting clothes (exercise top and leggings) as loose...

Some are way better.  The same with my mobile phone plan.  And I’m learning to speak English...

(We had a lot to catch up on!)   See more work by Ian V Curtis here:...

How to be happier and more productive

During the time I’ve been doing one-on-one sessions, classes and workshops I’ve noticed a common theme – that women in most if not all areas of life put everyone else (partner, kids, work) first and are paying the price, feeling stressed, overwhelmed, exhausted and miserable and feeling as if they have lost their identity and wondering where their life has gone.   Have you been doing everything for everyone else and nothing for...

My latest travels

For those of you wondering where I am and where I’ve been, I’ve spent the afternoon with my mother in the garden and I’m recently back from a week in Orlando, home of Disney World where I attended a marvellous business-building event where I, amongst other things, shot a video which you’ll see on my website in due course and met with some of my fellow authors for an anthology titled Chocolate and Diamonds for the Woman’s Soul which...
