Most of Top Life Coach Carole Ann Rice’s work focuses on making people the best versions of themselves. Here, she shares the 5 Valentine’s Day mistakes that we all make. 1.

  2. Overnight masks for the best beauty sleep

    Comment
      Want the Best Beauty Sleep? Buy Natural Jade Roller for Face and Use an Overnight Mask The Korean skincare invasion is the gift that keeps on giving. After sheet masks and their multiple steps skincare routine, they give us overnight or sleeping masks. Sleeping masks or sleeping packs are meant to be worn overnight and then washed off when we wake up. They may have richer texture than regular face creams, but not necessarily in terms of moisture or active ingredients. They’re meant to be used on top of your regular skin care products to lock-in moisture and help our skin absorb all those antioxidants and anti-aging ingredients. How do they differ from clay and sheet masks? A clay...

    Article by By Michelle Reeves, life coach & author of The Happiness Habits Transformation With the ink just dry on your New Years resolutions, you’ve gotten 2019 off to the best possible start, right? Well, perhaps not. According to Statistic Brain, by the second week of January, 31% of people will have already quit on their resolutions and only just over half of us will keep going beyond the end of the month. As that first flush of New Year excitement begins to fade and the daily hustle and bustle of life infringes on our good intentions, it’s easy to get off track. All too soon we’re dealing with everyone else’s ‘urgent’ and forgetting what’s really important to us. So should we even bother to set resolutions? Heck...

  7. How is it possible to forgive an abuser?

    Comment
    Article by Pam Rowe In response to this question, I can only tell you about what happened, what I did and why. My father, who I met for the first time when I was 15, sexually abused me. He used the fact that I was a vulnerable child who experienced being raped before I met him, to tell himself it was okay to have sex with me. To quote him, “you were having sex already.” As a result, I left home at age 16, going into a relationship for rescue, rather than one that was good for me. After years of no contact with him, one day he turned up looking emaciated with no-one to look after him. I could not turn him away. I felt I...

    Comment
    Article by Alexandra Sutcliffe It was about two days after a huge shop, following which our freezer was stuffed with chicken, pork chops and minced beef and our fridge full of dairy, that my boyfriend decided to go vegan. As a keen cyclist and all-round athlete, he’d been floored earlier this year by his extremely high blood pressure, and was well aware of the health benefits of switching to a plant-based diet.  An evening of watching YouTube videos by physician and committed vegan Neil Barnard, who works with patients suffering from diabetes, obesity, and other chronic conditions, was enough to seal the deal. Couldn’t we introduce vegan days into our diet, I suggested, just as we already had several meat-free meals a week,...
