Despite the fact that I apologised in my last blog for not writing more regularly, I succeeded again in having a long gap between posts! I won't go in to my reasons, because quite honestly they are not important to you readers, what is important is consistency. On Friday I was on a course run by Sussex Business Bureau and I was reminded of the importance of regular communication.  Louise Fenwick, Zoe Cairns & Emma Pearce, specialists in social media and marketing, explained how social media is all about building relationships. People want to do business with people that they 'know, like and trust'.  It's the same in life isn't it? We all want to be around people that we 'know, [...]

If you think you are beaten, you are….

Are you beaten if you think you are?  I'd say in the moment of believing that thought, absolutely. If a football team believes they're going to lose, what chance do you think they have of winning? A positive state of mind really can mean the difference between success and failure.  Even if all the evidence shows that the opponents have never lost a match it's still important for the players to think positively  about their chances of winning. Focusing on winning, working together as a team and being present to what's going on in the match will make all the difference to the score.  Even if the team doesn't win at least the players will have done their best and enjoyed [...]

A laugh a day keeps Stress away…

We all know that laughing feels great but did you know that it's actually good for the body?  I recently found an article about the benefits of laughter... 'Humor is infectious. The sound of roaring laughter is far more contagious than any cough, sniffle, or sneeze. When laughter is shared, it binds people together and increases happiness and intimacy. In addition to the domino effect of joy and amusement, laughter also triggers healthy physical changes in the body. Humor and laughter strengthen your immune system, boost your energy, diminish pain, and protect you from the damaging effects of stress. Best of all, this priceless medicine is fun, free, and easy to use.' Laughter is good for your health Laughter relaxes the [...]

Wishing your life away…

I know for many Christmas can seem overwhelming; the pressure of 'the season to be jolly', can be all too much. Although Christmas is known to be particularly stressful, suicide rates are in fact down during this time. This is what the Centre for suicide Prevention has to say ... 'Suicide rates may be down during this period, but crisis workers all agree that Christmas can be a very stressful time.  Loneliness, depression, feelings of loss, financial burdens, family conflicts, and alcohol abuse can intensify during the holidays.' Children of course are enormously influenced by what's happening around them. In a survey carried out by the BBC children’s TV programme Newsround found that.... Although 89% were excited, and 79% were happy [...]

No Fear No Stress

By | March 31st, 2010|EFT, Film, Stress/Fear/Anxiety|

Just think about those 4 words a moment.  No fear No Stress. Do you think that’s true? Well, take a look at your own life. Do you experience 'stress'? If you do, what particular situations do you find stressful? When you feel 'stressed', what do you think is the underlying emotion? If you feel irritated and frustrated when your children won't cooperate, you might think that the emotion is anger, but I suspect, if you looked underneath the anger, there would be some fear. I want you to try something now. I want you to jot down the answer to the following question, and as you do so, just keep on writing till you have run out of things to say. [...]

Dealing with stress…..

By | February 24th, 2010|EFT, Film, Stress/Fear/Anxiety|

Are you .... working too hard? out of work? in a job you don't enjoy? feeling overwhelmed with family demands? struggling financially? up against deadlines unable to do everything in the time you have? worried about someone? dealing with health issues? finding you are always last on the list? Whatever 'Stresses' you have, feeling anxious and overwhelmed actually gets in the way of you completing your list of tasks, and more importantly affects your health and enjoyment of life.  Relating to life like it's a 'to do list' means you can miss out on the joy that is all around you (people, your children, nature). The truth is that no matter how hard you try you are not always going to get [...]
