Difficult 2020? – Tools for 2021!

by | Dec 29, 2020 | Uncategorised


If 2020 has demonstrated anything, it is that the only certainty in life is uncertainty.

So, what are the practical tools that could help deal with this?

This morning I listened to the news on the radio which left me feeling anxious and a little overwhelmed. Later, after breakfast these words by Reinhold Niebuhr came to mind:

‘Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference’

It sounds like helpful advice, but where to begin?

Every day in January, I will be putting a mindful offering on this page. Each of these simple moments of mindfulness will take no longer than 5 minutes and can be done at any time of the day.

Mindfulness, over the years has essentially brought me 4 things: stopping; seeing; self-understanding; choosing.

I hope these mindful offerings will provide the opportunity for you to stop and step out of the autopilot, which can unwittingly consume large parts of the day. They might also help you see more clearly the role you play in what is happening in your life. The aim of this deeper self-understanding is to enable you to make more informed choices that positively impact you and those around you. It can bring compassion instead of self-judgement.

Practical tools to help you deal with uncertainty in 2021.
