Brain or Shine

Welcome to Brain or Shine, our blog giving an insight to living with brain injury.

Where did this title come from? Well, to me a brain injury can be like the wonderful English weather, one minute the sun is shining, the next, it’s raining. It’s so unpredictable and has the ability to change very quickly.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not all doom and gloom. In fact, so many Brits love to complain about how bad the weather is but they don’t focus on a blue sky on a cold, crisp morning, they complain about the low temperature instead. If you can focus on the beauty and positive bit, life becomes more joyous. So back to my blog, well it’s here to help not only those living with brain injury but the family and friends who have also been affected by their loved one suffering these side-effects.

My name is Mark and I’m a motivational speaker, trainer and author. In fact, the book What The Hell Just Happened? is a raw story of mine (and my wonderful wife, Jules) journey through…well, let’s just say a few challenges that life decided to throw at us.

It’s was Jules’s idea to write the book and you can find it in the shop on our website www.futuretoolbox.co.uk.

Our aim from this blog is to help others with simple tips to cope with the side effects of brain injury. Sometimes, it’s the little things that make the biggest differences.
