Amongst the many lockdowns, the economic turbulence, and a cavalcade of political strife, the 2020s haven’t exactly got off to a flying start. During times of great hardship, it’s common to overextend one’s mental health budget.

It’s good to win

It’s good to win

It’s good to win! What does the word competition mean to you? The word can be seen both positively and negatively – winning usually comes at a cost to the person who doesn’t, but not always! In order to move forward, progress and be successful, we need to win, we need to step up, which means we need to compete. What is the definition of winning? To win – you defeat those people you are…

Self-Sabotage

Self-Sabotage

What does self-sabotage mean to you? For most people, our behaviour or thought processes hold us back and prevent us from doing what we want to do. We often know we are doing it, yet continue anyway, and sabotage our performance at work and home life, in our relationships, our sporting progress, or historically in our schoolwork. We need to understand which self-sabotage habits and tactics are natural for us. Self-sabotage has many different angles…

Never begrudge donating your time

Never begrudge donating your time

Volunteer, philanthropic or unpaid board positions – they are good to do when you have the time, incliniation or desire and when we take on these roles, they have to work both ways.

Old or New?

Old or New?

There are times when we need to reflect on everything we have around us and assess whether or not it’s still working, old or new, broken, no longer fit for purpose, or out of date and unskilled.

Puppy Love

Puppy Love

Sitting on the kitchen floor with 10 labrador puppies climbing all over you, they’re not doing anything for you intentionally, just playing and being very cute and cuddly. For you, it is heartwarming, energising and can even be medicinal, as they take you back to a place of total innocence and pure joy. Personally, I get all of this as a result of giving a small amount of my time. How much time do you…

Open Your Eyes

Open Your Eyes

There are signs everywhere – on the roads, in your house, your body and of course, in your horoscope. No matter where you look, there are signs. How you filter them is the question. What do you read? What are the signs that you pay attention to? And why do they stand out in comparison to all the others? Not being a Neuroscientist, I wouldn’t want to start quoting incorrectly as to what the reticular…

Active Mindfulness and Meditation

Active Mindfulness and Meditation

Mindfulness and meditation normally involve a belief that we have to sit still, , turn off our mind so it can become completely blank and just exist in an alternative state resembling some sort of zen space.
