With gratitude and thanks to Som Dutt for the gracious invite.

I didn’t want to overthink this, so I set myself the challenge to respond and edit my answers in under 30 minutes. Here goes.

1. Resolutions or No Resolutions?

Resolutions are an interesting one. I used to religiously make resolutions for a number of years but soon found myself come the end of January struggling to maintain them.

So for the last few years, I have done away with resolutions and focused on goals, dreams and intentions instead, so no resolutions for me.

2. Mountains or Ocean?

Oceans, without a doubt. One of my fondest memories is our last family holiday before the pandemic standing by the shores of the Mediterranean sea in Tuscany.

I can picture it now, hearing, seeing and feeling the turquoise sea with the sun and the warm breeze across my face.

3. Fiction or Nonfiction?

This depends, but that said, the majority of what I read is generally non-fiction. I enjoy self-help and personal development books.

Occasionally I will read fiction for the escape because there is nothing better than exploring the imagination beyond the confines of what we know.

4. Morning or Night?

Over the years, I have gradually adjusted to become a morning person, although, on occasion, I attempt to burn the candle at both ends.

Mornings for me, are that special time to focus and collect my thoughts once I am beyond the initial grogginess.

I enjoy the peace and solitude where it is just me and my thoughts.

5. Long or Short?

Easy — short.

I have a short attention span; say no more

6. Books or Audio Books?

Books I love the tactile nature of books. It helps me feel more connected to reading, and I enjoy the practicalities of being able to easily flick through the pages, pause make notes.
