Stress Management

  I’m often found in the middle of the night to be writing blogs, developing workshops or whiling away the hours on social media sites, but you’ll rarely hear me grumble – I love it! I’m a non-conformist in many ways but probably most especially in my sleeping patterns. It’s not that I don’t sleep, […]

On Facebook I subscribe to a number of people’s updates so I was really interested when Lewis Howes from Forbes, posted his article 10 Ways to Build Confidence When Facing a Storm. Lewis draws on his experiences as an athlete and explains how he uses these to keep himself confident and motivated while describing how […]

Fear

by Lesley

  Each one of us has it in different proportions – it’s my job to overcome it, but I still have it… Fear; the killer or the hero of our dreams. Fear is a great motivator but also a huge stumbling block to reaching our potential. It’s what holds us back or pushes us forward; […]

Putting these words on ‘paper’ has been quite a gruelling task – and one […]

Falling in and out of love is a magical, yet such a subjective topic… … although, I’m sure there are common themes which run through most ‘loving’ relationships.

Image by  alicepopkorn This is a guest post by Mark Corner The very first time I encountered meditation was quite some years ago now. I had heard about it in latter years, but never really took any notice of it. I honestly thought that sitting cross-legged for half an hour to 20 minutes wouldn’t benefit me that much, […]

Freedom Being open to new experiences is a big part of everyone’s personal development – but I’m sure if we were to scientifically poll the population, most people would draw their line long before they undertook a firewalk, a sweatlodge ceremony  or a mind-altering trip into themselves. Thankfully, I’m not most people. I’d wanted to […]
