The programme was created from a need in 2021. It began with encouraging hand-written messages on wooden tags in SW London during Lockdown to uplift and inspire people.

The programme includes beautifully hand-drawn illustrations, calming audio recordings, and now incorporates refreshing, creative, physical activities too. It is based on 7 interconnected steps:

Exercise and refuel purposefully

Minimalise my materialism

Breathe fully

Quieten my mind

Rise above my emotions

Be thankful and kind

Use my words powerfully

This is a beautiful programme that is incredibly easy to follow with results that make a real difference... I try to incorporate the steps into my daily routine, as my secret simple dose of wellbeing and recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone.
