Breathe magazine

I think it’s important to take a step back and enjoy how far we’ve come, especially when we reach a milestone on our journey. This is because when we recognise our achievements it boosts our confidence and enables us to relax and recharge, preparing us for the next stage.

So today, as we approach the end of the year, I’m pausing to look back and celebrate writing for the first nine editions of Breathe; an inspiring lifestyle magazine covering wellbeing, mindfulness, creativity and travel.

Writing for Breathe has been a wonderful part of my freelance life and it’s been an honour to write for one of my favourite magazines! I’ve written 12 articles and they’ve included, how to reach your goals, overcoming creative block, enjoying a more mindful day and how to simplify your relationship with the internet.

And just to add, in addition to Breathe, the GMC Group also publish Teen Breathe and a number of special journals including the Creative Journal and the List Journal.

Embracing flow in life and work

Working as a writer has highlighted the value of setting goals while remaining open, enjoying the flow and movement of life and the opportunities that it brings with it. When I left my job at the University of Oxford in 2015, my plan was to fill days with blogging, styling and photography. However, after a few months, I felt like something was missing – pretty ironic after spending my career yearning for a more creative job!

Then one day an offer landed in my inbox to write for Breathe and I started utilising my people development experience by coaching creatives. As a result, things look very different today and I spend the majority of my time coaching and writing, along with a little voluntary work when time permits.

It’s okay to change your plans, pivot your career/business or even start again from scratch. You are responsible for your life and you hold the power to make changes. When we silence the noise and expectation we can give ourselves the freedom to uncover a path that’s right for us, letting go of all the things that are holding us back and making the most of our gifts and abilities.


If you’d like to take your life, career or business to the next level, I’m currently taking coaching bookings for 2018. As your coach, I can support you in uncovering your path, gaining clarity and moving closer to your aspirations, dreams and goals.

    Somehow I am unable to enter the givaway competition, but would just like to say how much I am enjoying my first copy of Breathe. I have searched everywhere for a magazine like this for ages, one that is full of mindfulness, peace, well-being and positive living articles. The illustrations are a meditation in themselves. My search is over, thank you.
