On 27 April, I turned 50 years of age and decided to make a birthday resolution to make the next year a year I get moving again.

I'd felt a bit stuck lately and didn't want to enter into this next decade of living a stagnant life.

So over the coming year, I've decided to write a 'prompt' each week.

These prompts started as a way to get me moving, but when I shared what I was doing with others, they seemed to resonate, and a few friends asked if they could join in.

So I decided to make them available for others, and before I knew it, a few hundred others were on the journey too! It seems, coming out of a couple of tough years, that a few of us are in the same boat.

If that's you - I'd love to have you participate.

The best way to get these prompts is to subscribe to my weekly newsletter. It's free to join, and I hope will be helpful to you.

If you'd like a taste of the prompts, here are the ones I've published so far.
