  1. 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...

    Tips by Fiona Lamb What with the short days, back-to-work blues and piled-up Christmas debt, no-one really looks forward to January. So it’s no surprise that January is home to “blue Monday” – supposedly the most depressing day of the year, which falls on January 21. But if you buy into the idea that the day is doomed to be depressing, guess what? It will be. 5 tips for getting past January 21st this year: 1. Cook yourself a healthy meal – don’t fall into the trap of thinking cooking is a massive effort. It needn’t be, and its rewards are huge, not least for your health. Be kind to your body and nourish yourself with good food. Develop a repertoire of...
  3. 5 quick ways to declutter your brain

    Comment
    Article by Carole Ann Rice In these hyper-connected and over-stimulating times, we’re all overloaded with information, and everywhere we look, someone or something is demanding our attention. It’s hard to keep up – and yet we get a dopamine thrill from it all, meaning that being switched-on is addictive. And like all addictions, it can turn toxic. Here are  5 ways to push back on information and sensory overload and sharpen your brain for a better life. 5 ways to declutter your brain 1. Give yourself a mental audit – start by taking stock of what’s overwhelming you. Maybe you have too many commitments, or perhaps you’re making other people’s needs your responsibility.

  4. 5 Ways to Achieve your New Year’s Resolutions

    Comment
    Article by Carole Ann Rice When it comes to the New Year, many of us use this as a time to set goals for ourselves for the next 12 months that lie ahead. Whether it’s losing an unrealistic amount of weight or starting a new niche hobby, our New Year’s resolutions are often extreme and set us up for a fall – leaving us feeling demoralised and distraught when by the time spring rolls into town. However, it doesn’t have to be this way. Most of Top Life Coach Carole Ann Rice’s work focuses on making people the best versions of themselves. In light of this, Carole has decided to share 5 ways to achieve your new year’s resolutions. 1. Be realistic – when setting your goal, it’s...
  5. Visualisation: why you should be using the technique used by NASA astronauts

    Comment
    Article By Beth Wood, Director of Mind Fitness and co-author of Unlock You, with Andy Barker To achieve your goals in 2019 – master the art of visualisation! It requires no fancy equipment and can be practiced from the comfort of your own home. Visualisation has been used in the sports industry as mental ‘training’ for more than two decades. It is employing the power of our imagination to help us change – which has also been used by NASA, the emergency services and a whole host of major companies from all over the world. Visualisation and Modern Science New MRI scanners has meant that we now understand why this process works. Our brain does not distinguish between real and imagined experiences. If an athlete goes into an...
  6. 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...
  7. Poignant Lessons I Learnt About Slowing Down In Palm Springs

    Comment
    Article by Claire Nash I love exploring the world. Travel for me is usually the chance to see new places, try things I’ve never done before, eat strange cuisines, and have fun with strangers. The older I get, the more adventurous I become. At least that’s how it’s always been. Recently, I found myself longing for a break. All I wanted was to get away to rejuvenate. Maybe it was my body telling me that I was on the verge of a burnout. But I think it was more than that. One of the reasons I’ve run myself ragged is because I don’t want to give in to my age. I feel like slowing down will be an admission that my body can no longer handle...
  8. 5 ways to stay motivated enough to achieve your goals

    Comment
    Article by Dawn Ann Campbell Thinking big uses up copious amounts of our precious brainpower, as if concentrating in a boring meeting wasn’t already hard enough. It’s no surprise then, that when we’re working toward our goals, our motivation often ebbs and flows at times. Staying motivated can sometimes be more difficult than achieving the goal itself! The International Authority for Professional Coaching & Mentoring is the leading accreditation authority for professional coaches. With that in mind, their Sales & Marketing director, Dawn Ann Campbell, is sharing her five ways to stay motivated enough to achieve your goals: 5 Ways to Stay Motivated Connect with a mentor in a similar field – motivation is like Vitamin C; your body cannot make it, you need to find...
  9. Coping with Change in your 50s

    Comment
    Article by Beverley Harvey This weekend with only my faithful dog for company, I sat and sobbed my way through Finding Your Feet. It’s a wonderful film that has a stellar cast of a certain age; Imelda Staunton, Timothy Spall, Celia Imrie and Joanna Lumley all act their socks off. It’s warm, witty and very funny in parts – but laden with pathos, too, so I highly recommend keeping the tissues to hand. I don’t want to spoil the plot, so I’ll just say that the story centres on coping with change. In this case, it’s concerning the abrupt end of a 40-year old marriage due to infidelity. The shock and despair of such a breakup is surely right up there with bereavement, and...
  10. Life over 50: How to Remove Time as an Excuse

    Comment
    Article by Ian Price   “I haven’t had time.” “I’ve been too busy.” “There simply aren’t enough hours in the day.”   How often do we hear ourselves wheel out these excuses for having let something slip whether in work or in life? We tend to give ourselves and others a pass when “time” is offered as an excuse. For many of us, life – both at work and at home – is frenetically busy. The demands of an “always-on” culture mean that work bleeds into life and, with our ever-present devices, we are constantly connected with colleagues, friends and family. Research into workers in the UK concludes that we are “overwhelmed employees” suffering from stress with ever-increasing workloads and a diminishing work-life “balance”. 8 tips to help you rethink time,...
