The Big Day is nearly here – looking back and looking forward  

If you were wondering why it was a bit quiet on the roads this morning, it’s because everyone was in the supermarket I went to first thing. And I do mean everyone. 

There’s something about this time of year which sends a lot of people a bit…well…frenzied. 

It’s an exciting time for many but some people meet this time of year with anticipation, thoughts of lost loved ones or find it all just too stressful. I hear you. 

People were stockpiling food into their trolleys as if a Zombie Invasion was imminent (I even checked my newsfeed in case I had missed something), and one person took their full load of shopping through the self-checkout because the queues were so long everywhere else. (Incidentally I found a list of Zombie FAQ’s which includes the question “Will I become a zombie if I sit on a toilet seat“?) 

It’s an exciting time for many but some people meet this time of year with anticipation, thoughts of lost loved ones or find it all just too stressful. I hear you. 

If that’s you, I hope you’ll love the Relaxation MP3 that’s in the Members Area of my Helping you Sparkle™ website – a resource dedicated to positive mental health. A maximum of 10 minutes is all you’ll need for some healthy time out. And it’s free. Just subscribe here and you’ll receive the password. 

Looking back, 2016 has been The Year of the Unexpected – things that nobody predicted happened and these events shocked the world over and again. David Bowie, Alan Rickman and Prince passing to name a few, Leicester winning the League, Brexit and Donald Trump, not to mention the horrors we’ve witnessed in Aleppo and other places around the world.  There is a strong wish from everyone, I think, that 2017 will be less stressful and without so much drama. Calm is welcome. 

Looking forward, 2017 also promises some excitement – there are an increasing number of movements promoting positive change and a growing desire to help others around the world. For me, I will be completing my long awaited book on Dreams and Sleep which is due to be published late in the year and also launching a brand new service exclusively for busy women in Milton Keynes. My focus is and always will be on helping others maintain positive mental health.

In the meantime, I’m heading into the Sparkle Cave and will catch up with you again on the other side of Christmas.   You can follow me on Twitter or Facebook for more updates on the book and my professional work. 

Wishing you a restful festive season whatever you’re doing and a magical new year.

Ps the answer to the Zombie question was “yes but not if you sit on the toilet seat with a loaded gun”. So there you go.
