Giving the gift of kindness this Christmas

Search kindness quotes online and – believe it or not – you’ll be able to take your pick from no fewer than 3,473 suggestions on just one of the sites that pops up!

A hugely popular topic and something that should be high on everyone’s agenda all year round of course…

Which is why, even though National Kindness Day 2021 has already been and gone, that’s exactly what this weekend’s guest on Girls Around Town will be talking about!

Joining June in the second hour of the show, Cathie Babbington will be sharing her own thoughts on being kind and why it’s especially important right now.

Whether it’s to family or friends, colleagues or customers, find out from Cathie how you can give the gift of kindness this Christmas, often without spending a penny and simply showing them by words or deeds that they’re in your thoughts.

Make sure you’re tuned to 107.8FM or listening online, on the apps or on Alexa from just after 11.10am on Sunday, when she’ll be live in the studio for the first time since lockdown began, sharing the latest news from her own coaching business too…

Before she practises what she’s preaches where kindness is concerned and treats June to a bit of Sunday brunch in one of the Newark‘s lovely little eateries!

How often not now becomes never

How many times do you find yourself putting off something on your to-do list, delaying a task that will take a while to complete until you’ve ticked off the quick and easy ones on there?

I’ll do that later, you tell yourself – and all too frequently, later can just end up being too late.

Or in the words of Martin Luther King, ‘How often not now becomes never‘.

It’s called procrastination of course and this weekend’s guest on Girls Around Town will be explaining what makes you do it…

And more importantly, how to stop doing it!

Joining June on the phone in the second hour of the show, Cathie Babbington’s recently published book 10 Minutes With Coach Cath is packed with hints and tips to help you manage your time efficiently where social media is concerned.

She’ll have rather more than just 10 minutes on Sunday of course and will be putting her time – and yours! – to good use when she shares her latest advice from just after 11.10am.

Make sure your to-do list this week includes a reminder to tune in to 107.8FM or listen online to catch what Cathie has to say…

No procrastinating – put it on the list now!!

A light-hearted look back at a difficult year

It’s the last show of the year this weekend so what better way to celebrate than with a light-hearted look back at some of the highs – and lows! – of 2020, together with a look ahead to what’s in store in 2021?

And who better to do it with than the inimitable Cathie Babbington, a regular guest on Girls Around Town and a good friend to boot?

Well-known to listeners as Coach Cath, she’ll be on the phone to June in the second hour of the show, when the pair of them will be chatting about  how they coped with the trials and tribulations of the last few months, both personally and professionally, and what’s on the horizon for the coming year.

Tune in to 107.8FM or listen online from 11.20am on Sunday to hear what they have to say about some of their favourite moments of 2020, the ones they could perhaps have done without, the lessons they learned in what has  without doubt been an extremely difficult year….

And how they both came out smiling – well, most of the time anyway!
