Cultivating a Beginner’s Mind

I’ve been thinking a lot about ‘practice’ these past few months. Perhaps the new year period put me in a reflective mood as I looked ahead to what I want to practise in 2022. There is comfort in practice. Whether your practice is yoga, finding stillness, writing, sketching or something else. When I was in my 4-year travelling period, my daily practices…

Oxygenating Your Business Brain

"Focussed, sharp, clear thinking, creative." What am I describing? A successful entrepreneur? Correct - also the benefits of a well oxygenated brain. Your most complex organ, the powerhouse of your nervous system, the brain consumes 20% of the body’s oxygen supply. Limit that supply and life quickly becomes unfocussed and foggy.
