Adventure begins mug on desk



I've just finished reading Adventure Revolution by Belinda Kirk.

Please read it so we can email each other about it! 

As a force for change, adventure can be powerful like few others.

This book is about this transformational power and the first to explore why adventure is essential to our wellbeing. From managing anxiety and overcoming fear, to finding self-worth and building interpersonal connections, to being happier, healthier and more playful, Adventure Revolution draws lessons from more than two decades of experience leading groups into the wilderness around the globe.

Illuminated with Belinda's personal narrative, her own research with modern hunter-gatherers and the latest findings in neuroscience and behaviour, Adventure Revolution presents a compelling case for ditching the living room in favour of a longer, happier and more adventurous life.  

I feel another camping trip coming on. Or maybe I'll climb a mountain... though to be fair, North Hill, East Hill and Balkerne Hill in Colchester are like the 3 peaks challenge to me...


Loved this week's Conversation of Inspiration with Holly Tucker where she interviewed Trinny Woodall (yep, the one off of What Not To Wear).

In 'From surviving, to thriving with Trinny Woodall, founder of Trinny London'  Trinny bares all about overcoming imposter syndrome in her early career, the crushing failure of her first business venture and even an honest account of her brief encounter with rehab in her early twenties.

Despite the lows that Trinny has conquered, there have been many highs – and it is clear that she has always been light years ahead of her time with her business ideas and vision for the future. 

Trinny’s sole mission has always been to help every woman look and feel their very best, and throughout her journey, she has learnt many lessons that have led her to being the happiest and most comfortable in her own skin that she has ever been.   It’s an episode that recognises and celebrates the survival instinct of all entrepreneurs, and one that you won’t want to miss.

I liked her.


The Art of Paying Attention with Wendy McNaughton.

In an invitation to slow down and look at the world around you, graphic journalist Wendy MacNaughton illustrates how drawing can spark deeply human, authentic connections. Ready to try? Grab a pencil and join MacNaughton for this delightful talk. "Drawing is looking, and looking is loving," she says.

Love this - so much.

Note to self to use the exercise at the beginning at an in-person event at some point.
