Caught up in a fast-paced world
Monday morning begins. The predictable annoyance of the alarm clock melody pulls me out of bed, and muscle memory takes charge. There’s no time to spare. Two outfit changes and a coffee down the hatch. The door shuts behind me as I quickly jog my three tote bags to the car. Traffic is heavy, but […]
Stop procrastinating. Be like Nike.
We are halfway through the year and about 180 days away from the next one, Christmas trees start going up in three months, and January’s intentions have been brought to my attention again. It sinks in, the thief that time really is. When you know what you want, do you immediately go for it? Do […]
The importance of gratitude

Life is like a flow
When you watch a child play, you will notice they are focused, with little care for their surroundings. Especially amongst nature. Typically, they are in a state of ‘flow’. Named after psychologist Mihály Csíkszentmihályi, The Flow Theory is described as being ‘in the zone’ – a mental state in which a person performing some activity […]
These past few years have been nonetheless ‘a lot’. In a blink, we’ve already reached June, halfway through the year. We’re going through the omicron outbreak whilst also gradually returning to a ‘normal life’ (it feels like a decade has passed since I could say that).

Tanya’s secrets to problem-solving
How do you solve a problem like Maria? You can send her to live with a widower and his seven children in Austria, but most problems aren’t that easy to solve. Quite often we’ll come across a problem and half the battle is working out where to start because if you don’t know where to […]
