By this point in the year, New Year’s resolutions are often a distant memory, even for the most strong-willed amongst us. But that doesn’t mean we should save all of our plans for change until 2018. As my new favourite saying goes
if not now…when?
To inspire both personal and social change, The Canvas Cafe is hosting a two week festival next month, exploring 8 areas in which we can all make a positive changes; environment, work and social business, community action, relationships and love, happiness, dance and creativity, health and wellbeing, and a day focused on changemakers. I’m delighted to be part of the Health and Wellbeing day, joining a panel discussion – It Starts With You: Self-care in a busy world. I’ll be talking all things work/life balance, digital detox and mental wellbeing with Lucy Pearson (Unplugged Weekend), Shakira Sturgess (Miss Simple Living) and Dion Terrelonge (Style and Wellbeing). Our panel will be moderated by the amazing Marianne Cantwell, whose book Be a Free Range Human completely changed my views on the ever-elusive ‘dream job’, what it means to be successful, and the pursuit of happiness.
