A collection of bite-size motivational nuggets of wisdom to start the day on a positive note

#MindU~~ Denying or shutting out thoughts of the Coronavirus will not help. Panicking or being stressed is understandable, but not the answer. Protecting yourself and others is the answer. Look after the elderly now, as they are our history and our souls. Behave towards others as you would want them to behave towards you.#MorningZenThough


#MindU~~ Loneliness is not about being alone. It’s the feeling that no one cares. The feeling of not being necessarily sad, but just empty inside.

In this time of crises we should reach out to elderly and let them know we care. Let’s put notes in elderly people’s doors this morning saying ring me if you need anything or just want to chat.



#MindU~~ In this time of national emergency we should ensure that fear does not make enemies out of people who should be friends. It is incumbent on all of us to protect each other. Everything we want and desire is on the other side of fear.



#MindU~~ We cannot live our lives by just satisfying our own selfish needs. When we look after others, we are looking after our own futures, as they will be there, when we need help. Stay connected to people.



#MindU~~ You are a full person through contact and relationships with other people. You cannot be human in isolation. You are human through relationships.

Isolation is the worst counsellor and coach. Our own thoughts can drive us crazy. We must ensure we reach out to as many as possible and keep contact alive and them alive.



#MindU~~ The irrelevance of matters that consume our thinking, recede when the important things in our life are threatened.

The priorities we had 10 minutes before, disappear as the new realities are understood. Focus on what’s important.



#MindU~~ Today be thankful for what you have. We fail too often to appreciate the richness of our lives in family, friends and health. Everything else will pass. Reach out today and touch the hearts of those you love now. Be a source of energy for them.



#MindU~~ We cannot help everyone, but we can help someone and ourselves. Search inside yourself, find the giving you'', and do for others what you hope someone would do for you.



Rule 1 - Take the helicopter route

If you are over-stressed or anxious about the #coronavirus then the greatest speech you will hear today is the one you five yourself this very morning.  Take the helicopter route. Look at the big picture

Over 97% of people recover

Now, today, play your part by ensuring we all recover.



Rule 2 - Take action in mind and body

Stop obsessing over the future and start focusing on managing your mind now.  Anxiety thrives on being fed. The more we allow the thoughts that make us anxious to consume our thoughts, the more anxious we will get. To remove that which makes us anxious "we must take action in mind and body". Do what you can, where you are, with what you have got. Do meditation, listen to music, do fast exercise, play games, watch funny movies. Accept your anxiety and let it go.

Prof. John MacIntyre

Last night, Dr Maurice Duffy very kindly spoke at the alumnae business event I helped to run at my old school, Newcastle High School for Girls. Maurice is without a doubt the best speaker I have heard by far and is based in the region. Everyone needs to attend a talk by him at least once. He is a game changer if ever I have met one!
