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

Why I love reading

Elizabeth Feltoe | 13th March 2021

It was World Book Day on the 3rd March and I have a secret to tell you. Probably one of the only good things about schools being closed is that I didn’t have to scratch around at 10pm on the 2nd March to make two dressing up outfits for my primary school aged children. I know, I’m such a party pooper.However, I love the idea of World Book Day – a f

Sasha Austin-Seade | 17th August 2018

In the first week of July, we delivered sessions as part of the taster week for the Hitchin 6th Form Consortium. This article is a quick recap of some of the key points to help on the journey. We know that all of you haven’t moved on to 6th form so we thought we’d share it with you as we think they are a really good place to start building new rou

How I won even though I failed

Sasha Austin-Seade | 29th June 2018

This post is supposed to be all about how I got on with the June Wellbeing challenge. I write them, I decide what we're doing, I even Instagrammed it and this is the point where I show you some amazing artwork 😳but he’s the thing I didn’t do it.🤭 Here's what happened. As much as I'd like to believe it, I'm not a superhero - now I can do pretty a

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

Wellbeing challenge - check your habits.

Helen Bainbridge | 24th November 2017

Habits are amazing! Don't believe me? I take it that when you left home this morning, you remembered to put your shoes on without even thinking about it. (To be fair, I forgot to take my shoes to the gym today but I was at least wearing another pair!) I'm hoping you also showered, ate breakfast and brushed your teeth. And I'm prepared to bet that

Laugh and a half

Kieran Murphy | 25th August 2017

As Bill once said "With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come" Laughter is something that I love to do everyday and I try to look at daily life and activities with a sense of humour. However what makes one person laugh may make another cry (it maybe with laughter but probably not;). Below are a few things that really make me laugh an

Spiritual Wellbeing

Kieran Murphy | 3rd March 2017

What is spiritual wellbeing? Does it mean to be a priest, a guru, one of the few enlightened ones or could it be someone who creates space and time to think and connect beyond themselves. I like to put it as ‘a brush with the Divine’. Just as our March wellbeing challenge stated, we/I am coming from a Christian perspective, as it is my faith that

Goals and rhythms

Helen Bainbridge | 3rd February 2017

Where do you want to be in ten years’ time – or five, or even one? What do you want to have achieved by then? Is there any area of your life where you are desperate to see change - where you would be disappointed to look back in ten years and see that things have changed little if at all? This month, I have been tasked with talking about goals – s
