Hello, I'm Michael

I’m an artist, podcaster and tea-drinker (not necessarily in that order!). Back at the end of the 1990s, I was diagnosed with ME/CFS, a chronic illness that severely limits how much I can do each day.

Over the years I’ve learnt a lot about living the best life I possibly can by accepting what I can’t change and working with what I can. I have built a successful creative career and am constantly learning how to combine that with a gentle and fulfilling life.

My daily life includes a regular twenty-minute work session that I can get to on all but my very worst days. Four days a week I encourage you to join me in my studio and work alongside me for this session during my podcast, One Thing Today.

Get started by listening to a podcast and, if you like what you hear, sign up to have them delivered directly to you inbox.

If you have creative goals or dreams but you’re limited due to a health issue, a lack of confidence or direction – or just time crunched — Michael Nobbs will give you the get up and go you need. But he does it in a relaxed, calm, comforting manner that manages to motivate without any hint of shame or false urgency…Highly recommended as a daily meditation for anyone who has creative dreams but is short on time or energy.
