SCBI#69: The Nuances of Compassion & Empathy

Compassion, Empathy & You Everyone experiences emotions. It's how we function as human beings. And with that truth comes the fact that in life, we often have to deal with not only the emotions that we feel but also the emotions that others experience. And it’s no secret that dealing with other people’s emotions can be a challenge. (I know you agree with me here!) Two very common ways to deal with other people’s emotions are to evoke compassion and/or empathy. These two responses have a very...

The Misunderstanding About Self-Care Self-care is a word you will hear all over the place. Yes, it’s another buzz word that people are throwing around left, right and centre but there is a little (BIG, actually!) misconception when it comes to its effectiveness. A few weeks ago I heard a particular coach, Stephanie D McKenzie, talk about self-care and what she said really struck a chord with me. It’s something that makes so much sense and really encapsulates what I was already thinking but I...

Fear. It has a way of ruining everything. We might feel excited about something. Curious about something. Calm about something. And then this little switch goes off in our minds that initiates that little feeling of fear. And it grows, and grows, and grows until the fear sets in and we no longer are looking forward to doing whatever it is we were looking forward to. Let me share with you a little anagram about fear that will help put it in its place and give you a resource you can turn to the...

It’s half term here next week so that means a week of the kids being home. Any good ideas to keep siblings from arguing with each other? Sound proof boxes? Straight jackets? Sending one child in to work each day with daddy? 😝 In all seriousness though, I do love it when they’re home because soon enough, they won’t want to hang around with mummy anymore so I’m trying to soak it up while I can! Enough about me. Let’s get to it! Time and the Productivity Obsession Productivity and getting things...

Is it just me or has this whole past week felt like some crazy never-ending full moon vibe? Everything just felt like it was going wrong, off-kilter or doused in A LOT of emotional energy! It started with a sad loss in the family - my partner’s grandma passed away - and continued with foreign objects in eyes, nurturing a sliced-off finger (not mine!), flat tyres while driving (mine), children acting like bewitched werewolves (mine!) and just riding emotional waves (also mine!). Luckily I’ve...

I’m a BIG fan of audio books. I really value personal time and I do spend a lot of time doing things that please ME but having a quiet place to read is often not something that I get during the day. It happens at night when kids are asleep, I’ve done what I needed to do…and by that time, when I start reading I end up falling asleep after paragraph 2! So you can imagine it takes me AN AGE to finish books sometimes. Listening to them on audio books is a heck of a lot faster for me and I can...

I’ve had what feels like a lazy week because I’ve had a cold that normally is just a runny nose and sinus blocks, but this one has zapped me of all of my energy! No gym, barely sent any Whatsapp messages 😂, definitely no socialising, no urge to cook meals and no desire to eat tasty food! (And if you know me, you know that if I’m not interested in eating, something is definitely not right! 😉) I’m using all my brain power to write this issue for you this week...and then I’ll probably need a...

It SNOWED in the south of the UK this week! For those living in colder climates, this is NOT very common here and so it was very exciting for most of us, particularly the kids! Having grown up in Canada, I’m used to TONS of snow and the first year I moved to the UK it snowed about 1cm in Brighton and the whole city practically shut down! 😂 I thought it was a joke - absolutely hilarious how everything was shut down and buses weren’t able to run. And I got a day off work that year so hoorah!...

2023 came and went! It was a great year in some ways and a challenging one in others. I’m sure many of you feel the same way. But here we are — 2024! And I can honestly say that I’m super excited for this year. I have some great plans up my sleeve and ones that you, my readers, will benefit from. Let’s see how the year unfolds and what it brings for us all. I hope you all had a great holiday season, however you chose to celebrate (or avoid!) it and that 2024 comes with a renewing and...

It’s been a few days of nothing but gluttony, sitting by the fireplace, watching the kids play with their cousins, watching movies and cold water swimming! I’d say it’s an ideal way to spend the Christmas holidays — for me anyways! 😜 What’s missing is the snow…🌨❄️…but snow is scheduled for the 28th so it looks like we’ll get our snow day in before we head back to the UK. At the moment we should be spending New Year’s Eve back home but with all the delays we had coming here I’m not holding my...
