Monday Motivation on a very difficult week for mos Monday Motivation on a very difficult week for most small businesses. Like most small businesses in Belfast we have already been impacted by the pandemic and will continue to be over coming months. We have postponed all our events and workshops, cancelled external bookings and are closed to new residents for the time being. No-one knows what will happen in the coming days and weeks so all we can do is keep calm and try and use the downtime efficiently to rest and think, develop new skills and work on new projects

Asking questions of what you really want out of life, what is your dream lifestyle and how can we create a plan to move forward. - It is extremely important to always dream big, but it is equally as important to do the work, create systems in place to get there and to be consistent. - You don’t have to do it alone. We want to create an encourage safe space to figure out what YOU need to do and what you want to do. - Time is something that we always feel that we don’t have. Therefore we know that it is hard to make time for ourselves and priories those needs and desires. - By choosing to do this course, you will be choosing to invest in yourself, your wellness and examine what you want to do and change.
