Sometimes we hold ourselves back out of fear of who might be watching us and how they’ll judge us based on what they see. We fear the judging eyes. To free yourself from this judgement, and therefore self-consciousness, try playing with these questions to identify the invisible eye that you imagine is watching and judging your every action all of the time. Remember that which you are aware of you can control; that which you are unaware of controls you. When were you first aware of being watched? Who is watching you now? For what imagined audience do you perform?
All that psychology has accomplished is to make the inner life the subject of science, and in doing this, it dissipated the idea of the soul. But it was the soul that once linked man’s inner life to a transcendent scheme of cosmic heroism. Ernest Becker, Escape from Evil You can’t tell who you are unless someone is listening and I’m wondering if this is a contributing factor to why we are addicted to social media. When you post on social media, theoretically there are thousands of someones listening to you. And if they ‘like, share, or comment’ on your
In this week’s show, we explore the idea of ‘what to do when you don’t know what to do’, and letting go of things you’re holding on too tight to. Plus we have some fantastic tracks from: Said the Sky, Ancient Astronauts, Degiheugi, Morcheeba, Son Lux, Cibo Matto, and more. The Playlist
I’m wondering if, like me, you sometimes get lost in the mental fog of mind brought on by too many competing priorities for your time to the point where you become unclear what to do next because you can’t see a clear path through the fog. If so, watch this video. I’ll share with you a few things I do to clear away the fog and get back on track.
Just in time for the weekend, something to chill to. In addition to some great tunes, we explore the sometimes confusing waters of well-being, how self-care may be too feminine of a word for men to relate to, the quality of one’s experiences, and boundless love.

What’s happening in coffee notes world? I’ve been engrossed in work, not much time spent in reflection. I feel like I’ve lost days or lost track of time or me in time. Maybe that’s it, I’ve lost track of “me” or the version of me that is the closest to my true self. Instead I’ve been in the full character of one of my personas – my work persona, my “home” persona (the person i am with the family). Or have I just been in time, in the present moment with little time reflecting on the past or ruminating about
Rucking is proving to be just what I need in terms of getting totally obsessed with fitness again. I did a simple ruck march – 3 miles carrying 20lbs – yesterday and today I am feeling it – in a good way – my body has that happy ache and my mind is agile and awake. I spent half the day doing admin and the other half on Zoom with a new client prepping for an upcoming programme to help junior women tap into their ambition. I’m never one to do things half-assed. So of course, once I set my
Another goal, I’ve added to my list of goals this week is to fall in love with writing again.

Hey good folks, So I’ve launched another radio show. The tagline for it is ‘add a little digital calm to your day.’ The show will feature music, thoughts, insights, and wisdom. If you need a little chill time or want something mellow to work to, pop this bad dawg on your stereo or your iPod or whatever you listen to music on and let the tunes take you away. Oh and my co-host on the show is Naomi Martell-Bundock. If you want to listen to the show minus the talk, you can listen here. And if you want to listen
