Coming of age. 2021.

Breathing to support our mental health. The new century has come of age – 21. It used to be tradition to be given a key on a 21st birthday. The key was to open the door to the rest of your life.

Overwhelm: one curve ball too many.

When overwhelm beckons what do you do? Overwhelm is the state that occurs when we live out of balance. It is what happens when work requires solutions that appear beyond your control. We seem to pride ourselves on saying we are busy these days. Like it gives us status, worth even. Are we mistaken? Not wise but foolish?
