This question comes up a lot, because we put a value against everything that we do, and some of the values that we put against health are not as important as they should be, or we don’t take it as seriously as we should. It’s very easy to get caught up in the here and now, and think, “Well, I’m okay for now. I don’t need to think too much about the future. The way I’m living my life now is okay, I’m managing.” Or, maybe you’re just firefighting all the time – you haven’t got the energy to put into health. My belief is that we’re sacrificing or selling off our future for the convenience of today, and you can apply that to anything in life, but particularly health.

I am the owner of Mockingbird Makes and a speaker on Creativity for Wellness with over 15 years experience in creative innovation and personal development. I am also trained in Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, and am a mum of two boys. How long have you lived in the area? I’m originally from New Zealand but have lived in East Dulwich for over 10 years. What brought you here? My husband and I moved here to have a garden, as we previously lived in an apartment in Battersea. What do you most value about the street you live in? We live in a cul-de-sac and the boys can enjoy playing out with other children. We also live close to Dulwich Hamlet Football Club and are delighted they are back in their home ground. The way the community have come together to bring them home is so inspiring. I donate to their 12thman fund for everything I make in the team’s colours. What’s the one thing you couldn’t do without? Whenever we’ve discussed moving …
