I realised this week that I have started:
1) a website to promote curiosity and learning;
2) a consultancy advising people on harnessing human sociability; and
3) a campaign to help people be more conscious of how to manage their minds.
And so now I:
1) have no time to learn anything;
2) never see my friends; and
3) am really stressed.
The irony of this is not lost on me.

My friend Gavin runs this great service that runs workshops in 'digital health' and provides tools to help people have more positive and productive relationships with technology. I may need to book myself an appointment...

What's the mental health equivalent of five-a-day? Take the test and decide for yourself what *you* can do to manage your mind.

I've been thinking a lot about my relationship with technology lately, which is a big deal for someone in my line of work. In particular I've really been struggling to keep up with my level of incoming mail. Every day my inboxes are fuller than the day before. I hate being rude to people, and e-mail seems to be the quickest way to stack up uncompleted tasks. (And don't even get me started on Facebook.)
I have not updated the events list here but I still hold retreats at Eastcott Barn and lead workshops. Enquire directly for details.
We all find that some days seem harder than others, its times like these we benefit from Meditation. I know that a busy life style can seem to leave us no time at all, so we tend to neglect our peace of mind and spirit.
So, how about giving yourself that peace, focus on yourself for half an hour. Meditation and quite contemplation is fantastic for lifting our mood and will also help us see with clarity. Maybe, even answer a few questions we have.
When all is said and done looking after our mind and spirit is a way of showing ourselves unconditional love.
