Session 1 – Nurturing Your Gratitude 

An attitude of gratitude is everything; to remember how lucky we are to live in the times we’re in, to focus on the things which really matter most, to appreciate everything that’s positive in the world. During this immersive bitesize session, Dan will briefly share his story – from a 5-year battle with bipolar disorder to running 1250-miles from Rome to London – before giving you his top tips to truly nurture your ‘gratitude’ and what can happen as a result.

Session 2 – The Power of Putting Yourself First

You’re the one person you spend 100% of your life with, so it better be the best relationship you have. How hard is it to put ourselves first in the times we’re living in? We’re surrounded by relentless distractions, overwhelming noise, and never-ending demands on our most valuable resources; our time, our energy, and our attention. Yet without topping ourselves up and giving ourselves the love, compassion, patience & empathy we do so well to offer others, we’re in danger of being in the passenger seat of our own lives and not leading the lives we all crave to live. During this immersive bitesize session, Dan will briefly share his story – from a 5-year battle with bipolar disorder to running 1250-miles from Rome to London – before giving you his top tips on how to give yourself permission to put yourself first.
