Having time off… The importance of rest!

Amanda Maylin | 11th April 2021

This is one those subjects that is much easier to talk about than to do – well it is for me!I am a keen runner and triathlete – though I can’t do triathlons at the moment due to lockdown. However, in the past I have run Edinburgh Marathon and done a half Ironman. For both of these I needed:complex training plansa diet regime to follow (enough carbs

Time to replenish

Elizabeth Feltoe | 5th July 2020

In the second of her series for Phase looking at finding and using our strengths, Sarah Crittenden makes some suggestions for finding space for R&R... we like the sound of that!Someone said to me the other day that they thought their current lifestyle wasn't so much 'working from home' as 'living at work'.

The need to read

Kieran Murphy | 22nd December 2017

I was a late comer to reading, as a child I would rather run around, climb, watch a film, pretty much do anything other than read. It was during my year of travel that I found the joy of reading. Once I was away from the general distractions of life, I was faced with more time than I had ever had and not much to fill it. Enter a book given to me b

Balance

Rebekah K Bacon | 1st December 2017

Balance. Beth Tweddle comes to mind, bending over backwards, doing flips and somehow managing to land perfectly. Secondly, all the things in life which somehow I am supposed to balance – relationships, faith, work, rest, creativity, health and exercise. Unfortunately, we are not all made with the skills of Beth Tweddle, and so balance in that sens
