Last week I started a new job. Always a little bit of a worry, the nerves kick in, the questions formulate in our heads. A little nerves are good, they show we care about things. We start to have that nervous/excited feeling where can’t quite work out which is the strongest feeling. Continue reading
I suffer with insomnia, I have done since I was 13 or so, in other words a long time. It is a constant companion. It never goes away. There are times that it is worse than others, but it is always here.
So first some context. I average around 3 and 4 hours sleep a night, occasionally 6 or 7 but usually 2-3. That isn’t always all together. Quite often it is in bursts, not a constant sleep. Some days I struggle to get to sleep, others I drop off straight away then wake and struggle to get back to sleep. Sometimes I have broken restless sleep. Continue reading
When I started this blog I promised myself that to maintain my focus and offer regular content to my subscribers and readers I would post weekly. On a Sunday, in the early evening. Then I would reshare Monday and midweek. Continue reading

What do you want to be when you grow up?
I remember being asked that a lot when I was younger, I remember having to choose subjects to study for my GCSEs, thinking about my future as I approached leaving school and entering the world of work. Continue reading
Normally I am a fairly active user of social media. I use Twitter and Instagram a lot, I write posts on LinkedIn, I dip in and out of using Facebook. But when I feel a bit low, or when I get a little ‘wound up’ by it I step back.
I don’t delete my accounts or remove the apps from my phone, I just open the apps less and post less. Continue reading
I wrote a post last week on my Mental Health and in it I wrote this ‘I have Mental Health and my Mental Health is similar to my Physical Health. Sometimes I am good, others bad others OK or not really thinking about it.‘. When I wrote it it was kind of a throw away line to express how I felt, but I have spent the last week with it playing on my mind a little. Continue reading
It feels like we talk more about Mental Health these days, and that is a great thing. But it also feels like we don’t really talk about it. I have had lots of conversations with people about the topic of Mental Health, in particular Male Mental Health. Continue reading
