The next stage...

It's March and for the SMASH London team it's always been the month in which the next chapter of SMASH truly begins - ideas are flowing and excitement is rising! With new management there will always be changes but we are ready to adapt, change and continue to give you guys the best SMASH experience that we can

Blank Pages...

As most of you know, this week was my final week as manager at Fitness First Angel! Thursday was my last day and the Daily Calm (on the Calm app) was all about the stories we tell ourselves in our minds - some that limit us, some that promote us.

Frazzled...

It's Thursday evening and I'm tired, irritable and all the typos in this email are making my head want to explode  (they'll be fixed when it's sent but as I'm writing this, every other word is broken!) Quite honestly, I have been so busy this week that I'm a little bit frazzled - just like Sam said she was last week.

Rollercoaster

January can be a very intense time for some people - it seems everybody is highly motivated to achieve something spactacular! People have set resolutions which can mean they are suffering withdrawals from their favourite things like alcohol, chocolate and nicotine etc.... making some of them a little more 'on edge' than usual. All of this positive energy can also turn into a bit of a 'stressy' vibe which can be passed from person to person. 

What day is it?...

Christmas is over and we are in to that strange week where you aren't quite sure what the date or day is... or even if we are in 2019 yet! It's often a week that can cause dramatic mood shifts, irritability and deep reflective thoughts. We can get stuck in memories of the past year or fantasies of what the coming year will look like

Grateful smiles...

We are so very thankful for each and every one of you for all of the joy, happiness and success you have brought to the SMASH community in 2018 and we hope that the festive season brings all the laughter, love and strength that you deserve. And if, right now, your circumstances dictate that the coming days could be tinged with sadness, chaos or loneliness, please be patient and take time to offer loving kindness to yourself.


SMASH is growing...

Today's email is a short and sweet one filled with information for future SMASH projects in 2019! As we have spoken about recently, SMASH is growing and 2019 is set to be the biggest year yet with lots of exciting things coming your way

A Leap of Faith....

Hi everyone, Ash here 


"It's time to trust my instincts, close my eyes, and leap" - Defying Gravity, Wicked - The Musical

Trust me to use the lyrics from a musical to make a BIG announcement about my future 

Here's the thing guys, last week I made a huge decision. 

Something I have been thinking about for some time. 

Something that I knew required a huge leap of faith.

Kindness Nourishes your Mind...

This is one of our favourite sayings and is something we have used many times before. We had a big focus on kindness earlier on in the year, we even had a week of kindness where we focused on a different act of kindness each day. Kindness can be shown and expressed in many different ways and, most importantly, it can be the reason that someone smiles on a bad day.

Rejuvenated...

We often get caught up in the chaos of life that sometimes we forget to take a moment and be gentle with ourselves, and this was very apparent to me on Wednesday when I arrived at London's first silent cafe on Wednesday night...
