Note To Self

Heather Langley Mental Guru

When I was younger there seemed to be no end of ‘experienced‘ people willing to give their advice, whether I had asked for it or not! On writing this it occurs to me that I might now fall into that category so the first note to self is to only give advice when it is asked for! A Piece Of …

Insignificant Other

Heather Langley Mental Guru

Single. Unmarried. Childless. Definitions that I have worn as labels throughout my life with, at times pride and at times shame, but most often with disappointment and disillusion. One Love There’s one belief that is shared across continents and religions and between genders and sexualities; that we should all ‘pair up’ and reproduce. Certainly, without a pairing of some kind, …

Back To the Future

Heather Langley Mental Guru

When I was younger, that is to say of an age when older people would ask me “So what do you want to do with your life?” I never really knew how to respond. So I established what was known as my ‘Plan A’ whose subtext read ‘This is what Everyone Expects me to do with My Life’. A long …

Chaos Reigns

Heather Langley Mental Guru

We survived the Siberian snowstorm and the big freeze has turned into the big meltdown! The experience of these two weather fronts squaring up opposite each other like two boxers varied across the UK but from where I sit today, blinded by the sun and observing the damp patches on the roofs, I’m able to recognise that, beyond the drama, …

Slow Down; You Move Too Fast

Heather Langley Mental Guru

Life just got busier; crammed with dashing here and there, fulfilling commitments to work, friends and family. Sometimes it feels as if my feet don’t touch the ground and there never seems to be enough time to do everything I want to do, so I plan to do it tomorrow but then tomorrow I’m busier still! Where does the time …

Life Happens…

Heather Langley Mental Guru

…when you’re making plans right! So it’s been a week since my last blog and that’s just the way life is sometimes. When I talk to my clients and other friends it seems like there’s a lot of ‘life’ about right now! But life is not a thing as such. It has no fixed denomination, equation or definition. It’s quality …

The Story So Far

Heather Langley Mental Guru

One month in and hopefully a little bit wiser about the whys and wherefores of Mindfulness and Meditation. Here’s a summary of what we have learnt so far: Energy is the essence of life and has a rhythmic and repetitive nature; an expansive phase is followed by a reductive or contracting phase. Energy originates from a vacuum, pause or a …

Hallelujah, C’mon Get Happy

Heather Langley Mental Guru

There is one act that generates immediate happiness; it’s free, it’s quick and it’s contagious; SMILING! Whether it’s a coy attempt with lips together or with one lip raised in the style of Harrison Ford, or perhaps you’re a cheesy ‘grinner’ like Wallace (& Gromit) or all dimples and cheeks like a 5 year old. It’s almost impossible to smile …
