  • Greater Self-Awareness

Blinkist Subscription

Most of us feel we should read more (rather than just binge-watching boxsets), but actually finding the time and motivation to pick up a book can be a challenging.

Fortunately Blinkist offers you the opportunity to get the key ideas from bestselling nonfiction distilled by experts into bitesize text and audio. So if you know someone who is a time-poor, knowledge junkie, then a Blinkist subscription could be a perfect gift for them.


Daily Journal

As well as being a great form of self-expression, using a daily journal to externalise thoughts can also help to reduce stress, increase well-being and improve memory. The benefits are even greater if the journal is handwritten, rather than completed on a mobile phone, tablet or computer.

Moleskin offers a wide range of quality journals, so you're bound to find a design that's suited to even the most extreme tastes.


Headspace Subscription

Headspace's mission is to improve the health and happiness of the world. The mindfulness and meditation app already has millions of subscribers in dozens of countries.

The good news is that anyone, who's interested in giving mindfulness a try, can get started by downloading the app on IOS or Android and complete the basic course of guided meditations for free.

Those who want to go further can then sign up for either an annual or monthly subscription and access a full library of meditations and courses, as well as a range of sleep sounds!


Career Change Kickstarter

Okay, so hands up, this is a shameless plug for one of my career coaching services, although hopefully yo'll agree that it deserves a place on this list.

The programme helps and supports people, who are feeling stuck or trapped in the careers, to take those difficult first steps out of their comfort zone, so they can start fulfilling their true potential.

For a limited time I'm offering a 25% discount off the full programme price of £195. Head over to my website to learn more.
