  1. Is There An Ideal Age To Make New Friends?

    Comment
    Everybody remembers their best friend from school. Your meeting was writing in the stars, or at least, it wasn’t entirely in your control. The teacher sat you together on your first day of school. Within minutes, you were chatting as if you’d know each other all your lives, to the dismay of your teacher. When you think about it, teachers have been the first force of friendship. Nowadays, teachers play a significant role in helping young children to navigate the difficult rule of socialising at school. Many have introduced personal interaction skills and friend seeking as part of the essential day-to-day activities for primary school pupils. It’s easy to make friends when you’re at school because everybody shares the same values. When everybody around you...
  2. 3 Reasons Why It’s Important to Maintain a (Real) Social Network in Life

    Comment
      There are all sorts of things which are said to contribute to a healthy sense of well-being, balance, and satisfaction in life over 50. Fulfilling work is certainly one of these things. Optimal overall health, and good nutrition play important roles too. But, one of the things that is most consistently regarded as essential is maintaining a healthy social network.

All the same, here are some reasons why it’s important to maintain a real social network in life.   1. Some degree of social interaction...

  4. The Question – How To Find Your True Purpose By Asking The Right Question At The Right Time

    Comment
    Article By Bernardo Moya Many people have no idea how the questions they’re asking themselves shape their lives. Yet the right question can improve our health, beauty, fashion, money, careers – in fact our whole life, even more… Find Your True Purpose. I once knew someone who was unhappy and stuck in a way of living she didn’t like. Her fitness, career and money seemed pretty much immoveable. She had an expectation that this was how her life would be today, tomorrow and the next day. But when you asked her what she wanted she had a list as long as your arm of hopes and ambitions. “But I could never get those,” she had convinced herself. “How could I?” This is an attitude she had to challenge. Finally, one day when things got too bad,...
  5. Arise and Shine – how a great morning routine can make you happy

    Comment
    Article by Emma-Sue Prince   What’s your typical morning routine like? How you start your day impacts every single part of your day.  Once I realised that and changed how I began the day the effect was transformational. How you start the day pretty much dictates how the rest of your day will go and in terms of happiness, it is everything! So many people don’t necessarily think about that time period right at the beginning of the day when they wake up. They tend to do more or less the same thing – often putting the alarm back on snooze, or most of the time reaching for their phone and straight away checking for messages, news, email and social media. Then rolling out...
  6. 5 Ways to Step Up to Integrity

    Comment
    Article by Carole Ann Rice Just as no one admits to being a bad driver or a lukewarm lover, we find it hard to put our hand up to being out of integrity. Yet this is no brain twister – you are either in integrity or you are not. It’s really that simple. So how can you tell? When you are out of integrity, life’s “stuff” seems to conspire against you – people, bills, bad debts, relationships, and your health. You find yourself reacting in a bad way to others, life starts to feel something you endure rather than enjoy and there’s a sense that something is missing. There are many ways we can fool ourselves to avoid being authentic. Blaming others, things or circumstances or feeling...
  7. Happiness Habits for a Happy 2019

    Comment
    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...
