Colouring Therapy: Introducing The Flourish COLOURING Book

Colouring-in has become a preferred winding-down, mellowing-out, de-stressing activity. Colouring-in is therapeutic and relaxing, but it also stimulates that innate creativity within us which adulthood, jam-packed schedules and responsibilities can tend to squish.

What Would Scott Do?

One week ago I heard the tragic news about the untimely death of Scott Dinsmore – one of life’s shining stars – a man who lived more in his 32 years than most do in their entire lifetime. He had been embarking on a world tour with his darling wife Chelsea and was killed by [...]

Let It Go: Why Forgiving Others & Yourself = FREEDOM

Other peoples’ words and actions can get under your skin and niggle your brain. This can turn what might otherwise have been a jolly lovely day into a frankly shocking one. Bad vibes bubble away.

Feel The Funk And Flourish Anyway

Sometimes life can be a right beeatchhh. And it is thus in varying degrees of spitefulness. Some days, we arise with good intentions to achieve a lot, or to be kinder and everything just goes wrong.

Camp GLP – The Amazing Technicolour Dream Camp

Apart from “where did you travel from to get here?” The other primary question that strangers asked each other on arrival at Camp GLP (Good Life Project) was “WHY are you here? What brought you to campGLP?” I had a serendipitous reply. For, as I was about to turn 40, I had been sat pondering [...]

We all know that THIS really is it. YOLO and all that. Who doesn’t want to make the most of every moment? It’s just that, sometimes, life just gets in the way.
