The world is a LOT to deal with.

Add in everything that you have going on in your own life and quickly it feels like there’s no time for you (and should you even be thinking about yourself when there’s so much difficulty and pain in the world?).

Here’s the thing:

To not be overwhelmed by your own life and world events it is essential that you regulate your nervous system and take care of your emotional and mental health by actively creating moments of calm and joy. 

  • And if you're neurodivergent it's especially important you emotionally self-regulate and have daily space to care for your mental wellbeing.

Only by taking care of yourself, by creating a little space in your day to savour and relish your feelings of calm and joy, will you have the resources to show up for yourself, and for others, in the way you want to.

This is exactly what The Calm & Joy Catalyst will empower you to do.

This is the Calm & Joy Catalyst

Trying to carve out chunks of time in your day for yourself can feel (and be) impossible. You’ve a lot going on, you don’t have the capacity to put life on hold much as you might like to, and you may find it difficult to keep your attention for long.

So let’s drop the pressure of unrealistic expectations and break the cycle of disappointment.

Instead, how does taking just 10 minutes of your day to do what feels calm and joyful sound?

"The Calm and Joy Catalyst is a gift to yourself that keeps on giving. Not only did I have the delight of discovering the variety of joyful and calming activities that will fit into 10 minutes, but now it's over I still have the habit of seeing so many little joyful bursts during each day. I would highly recommend this course, so excellently prepared as ever, by Gabrielle."

The Calm & Joy Catalyst – 10 minutes a day for 30 days

Spend 10 minutes, of each day for 30 days intentionally creating calm and joy for yourself.

  • 10 minutes is short enough to be doable in a busy life and long enough to make a difference (you'll be surprised at just what a difference).
  • 30 days is long enough to really have an impact and short enough to not be overwhelming. Each day will be different so you won't get bored.

With 30 days you’re committing to yourself. Because that’s what this is really all about. 


Deciding that you deserve (and are allowed) to feel the calm and joy that you want AND taking 10 minutes a day to actively create and claim it.

(If a voice inside your head is shouting ‘selfish!’ at you remember that your emotions are contagious – your calm and joy will rub off on the people you come into contact with. And you know what you’re like around your family, friends and colleagues when you feel calm and happy compared to when you’re fraught and frazzled, right?)

"I completely underestimated how much difference this small change would make. It has proved a valuable tool and sharing with others from the group has been an enriching experience. Catalyst is definitely the right word for this course as the confidence to pause for ten minutes is spreading calm throughout my day."
Helen Hodgson

What difference would it make to you to feel more calm and joy each day?

Calm is our equilibrium, it’s where we feel stable, safe and secure. The more that we’re able to be in this state the more we are in tune with ourselves. We’re aligned with our values, resilient, confident, balanced and compassionate. 

When you’re calm: 

  • you can consider your response and act confidently
  • you think more clearly and feel more sure about the decisions you make
  • you cope better when life gets bumpy
  • you’re more able to honour your boundaries and say what you feel, want and need
  • you’re kinder, more patient and compassionate to yourself as well as other people

Connecting with the joyful part of ourselves allows us to feel lighter, freer, be more creative, optimistic and present. 

It means: 

  • you’re more playful, light-hearted and have fun
  • you find the hope and possibilities in tricky situations
  • you have a rounded perspective and come up with solutions
  • you drop the comparison and feel more contentment and peace
  • for the ADHD brain joy is vital for increasng dopamine which helps you to focus

We aren’t the only ones to benefit from experiencing more calm and joy on a daily basis. Everyone you come into contact with will be positively affected by a calmer, more joyful you.

Build your self-trust

The benefit you gain from consistently taking 10 mins action to feel more calm and joy each day for 30 days isn’t simply feeling more calm and joy. By making this choice, by making this commitment and seeing it through, you will significantly increase and strengthen your self-trust and self-belief.

gabrielle treanor writing in her journal on the sofa2

Because each day you spend 10 minutes on creating calm and joy you’re proving to yourself that you can show up for yourself. You can rely on you. 

You learn to trust in yourself each and every day. 

And when you trust in yourself…

  • …you know that you can cope with whatever comes your way
  • …when you get things wrong or make mistakes you know you’ll be okay
  • …you’re kinder and more compassionate with yourself
  • …you listen to your intuition and know what’s truly right for you
  • …you have greater clarity and confidence in your decisions and actions

Greater self-trust and self-belief isn’t even the main goal of The Calm & Joy Catalyst – it’s just a wonderful by-product!

This is The Calm & Joy Catalyst because it’s jumpstarting your calmer, more joyful life

I’ll suggest a wide variety of actions to give you inspiration and you choose what you do with your 10 minutes each day.

  • You can do something different for each of the 30 days or you can do the same thing.
  • You can try as few or as many different ideas as you like.

By trying different actions you’re less likely to get bored or perfectionist about picking the exact right thing. And you'll come up with a list of what gives you, specifically, calm and joy that takes 10 minutes or less.

"Since starting The Calm & Joy Catalyst it has become second nature to me to look out for and embrace joyful and calm moments every day! I’ve even taken up horse riding again because the Catalyst reminded me how much I enjoy it."
Nicole Cameron

Worried you won’t keep a clean sheet of 30 days, that missing a day will mean you’ve failed?

You’re human, not a machine and yes, you might not be completely consistent and you might miss a day or more. That’s not as important as you might think. What really matters is what you do next. 

Acknowledging that you missed a day and choosing to show up for yourself the next day is what’s important. Deciding to keep going, to try again, however many times you slip – that’s what matters. 

This is your commitment to yourself, this is what will give you more calm and joy and this is what will build your self-trust.

Will this really make a difference?

I know the Catalyst is powerful, the feedback from past participants proved it. I know the incredible positive impact that taking 10 minutes of your day for 30 days to feel calm and joy will have on you AND those around you.

We need to be grounded, rooted, energised and present more than ever and the path to this is through creating, claiming and feeling calm and joy in our daily lives.

The Calm & Joy Catalyst is the doorway to that path.

And, since my ADHD diagnosis, I have realised the importance and value of making space for my joy, for making it a priority, because of how it enables me to feel calm, to focus and achieve what I want and need in a day.

"I really enjoyed the Catalyst – opening and reading Gabrielle’s emails each morning became a mini ritual in itself, and gave me a moment of pause before I got going for the day. The ideas and suggestions were a wonderful mix, and gave me the inspiration to explore my own definitions of calm and joy, and the different, personal ways I can bring more of them to my life."
