Start where you are
The best place to start is where we are with kindness and honesty. So we take some time to get to know you and be ready for the adventures ahead.
Choose what really matters
We become empowered when we clarify our purpose and process (what we want and how we want to get there).
This involves kindness, honesty, acceptance of uncertainty, recognition of responsibility.
Humility helps us hold our experience of “choice” lightly, so we can work well with what we’ve got
Do what really helps
Our aim is to empower and help you bring out your BEST.
Understanding that changing habits can be uncomfortable and tricky to sustain, we simplify the science to make it easier and enjoyable to stay on track.
Good work can be fun too. So we pause and make time to enjoy the effort and achievements on the journey, aiming to release you ready for your adventures ahead.
We aim to simply be present together because whatever our differences, it’s presence that we all share. It’s often overlooked and yet when recognised it offers us a sense of stillness, centre and connection.
EveryBODY needs to sleep, eat, move and soothe. When done well we thrive, and if neglected we struggle. Despite our best intentions sometimes our habits may not be healthy. By understanding what we do depends on motivation, ability and prompts we can help you harness healthy habits, making it easier to live well, feel alive and do good.
Experiences emerge through our thoughts, feelings, stories and meanings. They influence our mindset (how we see and act in the world). Through compassionate understanding we can work with the mechanics and mysteries of our minds to accept, learn and be empowered by these experiences.
We shape and are shaped by our rhythms and environments. Technology has radically transformed these in recent years, thus challenging us to respond creatively and compassionately. We need to balance our times at home, work, rest and play as well as wild places that take our breath away. Together we can create supportive spaces and healthy routines that naturally nourish us.
You are unique and you are not alone. We are connected by our relationships, dancing with the different aspects of ourselves, each other, nature and the unknown.
This has challenges and, like it or not, we are on the same team, so how we relate matters. Together we can celebrate our similarities and differences to nurture harmonious relationships.
Science made simple
“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough “- Albert Einstein
Science is the art of making better mistakes, so good science is humble, honest, courageous and evolving. It helps us understand the evidence (balancing the limitations and biases) and inspires us to apply it well.
When we live well, we feel alive and do good
It seems so obvious and the science supports this too. Potentially 70% of deaths are attributable to reversible lifestyle factors, (how we eat, sleep, move, and soothe).  
Thus simple lifestyle changes can equate to:
- Living longer, with 10 more healthy (disease free) years.
- Feeling better, because lifestyle and mental health are connected. 
- Doing better, because lifestyle influences performance. And because this flows in a virtuous cycle, even small improvements matter, so when we do good, we feel alive and live well too.
Common sense is not common practice...yet.
Let’s just look at sleep. The World Health Organisation has identified a sleep crisis. 70% of people are short sleeping (about 2 hours less than recommended) and most of us don’t even know it. 
This increases the risk of diabetes, obesity, cancer, dementia, heart attacks, strokes, infections, accidents, mental health and fertility issues, with a 13% inc risk of mortality! 
It also reduces our performance, costing us on average £830 per person/yr and uk economy 50 Billion GDP! . The good news is now we can do better.
It's not too late!
We are all doing our best but modern stresses like smart phones, social needs, stimulants, sedentary lifestyles, snacking, artificial lighting and shift work make it harder to do what helps.
Studies have shown that simple lifestyle modifications even in later life can reverse many diseases. We have designed effective ways to help you do it. 
So what would you be willing to try something new that could help bring out the best in you?
What brings out your BEST?
We have researched and found 5 essential areas for us to thrive and really simple ways to help you do it.
- Bodies because our lifestyle matters.
- Experiences because our mindset matters.
- Situations because our environments matter.
- Teams because our relationships matter.
- Essence because our meaning matters.
Easy does it, keep it simple
Life feels good when our behaviours (what we do) helps us achieve our goals (what really matters). This may be hard because of challenging situations and unhelpful habits. (eg a phone notification prompts us to surf the net rather than go to sleep).  Our behaviours are influenced by our motivation (our drive to do it), our ability (how easy it is) and our prompt (what reminds us to do it). Because this often happens without us noticing, we aim to make it easier for you to shape your situations, remember your goals, do what really helps and feel good about doing your best, so it soon becomes a healthier habit. 
Enjoying what we do boosts our health, wellbeing and performance as well as making healthy changes sustainable and inspirational. 
Also, if it’s not fun what’s the point? We use the latest insights from mindset and performance optimisation to transform problems into opportunities and frustrations into friends  .
Team working works, so we combine our years of experience in guiding individuals, teams, schools and organisations with your many skills too. By collaborating we bring out the best in each other. 
It pays to be healthy
It’s well recognised that health, wellbeing, and performance can flow in a virtuous cycle. So it makes economic and ethical sense to invest in health. 
No one wants to be trapped, so we don’t define you by your past or limit your future. We see your beauty and potential and share A MAP of success. Acceptance , Mastery Agency and Purpose are 4 evidence-based, empowering qualities that we develop on our adventures together, with the simple aim of setting you free.
The evidence for presence
At the heart of Humble is presence. As simple as it sounds when we are present together we respond well, transforming and transcending our circumstances. 
Research, publications and presentations
Finally, there is much to learn so we aim to keep on improving. We audit our work and are engaged in research, presentations and publications, sharing insights and innovations with our communities.
