    3 Powerful Tips To Help Manage Everyday Stress

    Often times stress will manifest when we carry over yesterday’s worries into our present-day thoughts. An accumulation of these worries will almost always end up with a high stress level, raised cortisol levels and a perpetual state of distraction and not being able to fully focus. Therefore, we must be able to “dump” all of our concerns from the previous day or days and concentrate wholly on our today. So here are 3 stress-busting tips to help you manage the daily build-up of stress. If you’re suffering a more chronic stress, or feeling overwhelmed or even burnt out, check out my related content on these here: How to build resilience…

    The Art Of Daydreaming

    When the soul wishes to experience something she throws an image of the experience before her and enters into her own image. Meister Eckhart Do you have any idea what you think about all day? It sounds like a silly question, but most of us don’t actually observe the noise that’s constantly going on inside our heads. You’ve heard the saying “Be careful what you wish for because you might just get it!!” This is the universal Law of Attraction at work and it applies to all of us without question. Unless we make a conscious effort to watch ourselves from the sidelines, our everyday thoughts and our reactions to…

    Vitamin D: 10 Myths Debunked

    The conversation around Vitamin D is complex and there are lots of myths and counter-claims passed around like cookies. Most are hearsay, old-wives-tales and the like, even if there may be grains of truth behind some of them. A recent series from Grassroots Health looks at the misinformation and, scientifically, discusses the reality. It’s an interesting story and, if you’re serious about your health, take some time to read through the different articles. My takeaway from this is that you should be informed about the choices and not blindly supplement just for the sake of it. Although this will have some benefits in most cases, it might not have the…

    How I Help Build Resilience: Learning Strength from our Scars

    2020-2021. It’s been an uncharacteristically testing time for our resilience. The pandemic has been the overriding event of the century, and one that has challenged our very human nature at its core. We are social creatures and the ability to be social has been taken away from us. We have been told to work from home, not meet our friends and family, self-isolate when we feel sick (or for one of many other rules or reasons). Loneliness has become a real and tangible issue for many. Phone and Zoom calls alleviate the monotony, but they never replicate the connection we experience when we meet people. There is an invisible sharing…

    Why Giving up Sugar is Hard, and Why you Must Try

    Sugar is hard to give up, not because you don’t have the willpower, but because of the biology surrounding sugar. You can’t overcome your biology with willpower. You will fail every time. So you need to approach it scientifically. Science Over Willpower The science of sugar is fascinating: It not only drives mechanisms that make you gain weight because it produces more insulin and so stores belly fat, but it makes you hungry, it slows your metabolism, and it locks the fat in the fat cell so it can’t get out – it’s like a one-way turnstile. I think we can agree these are not desirable effects. When you look…

    The 4 Intelligences: Mind, Body, Emotion, Spirit

    I was reading The Fourth Industrial Revolution by Klaus Schwab (2017) last month and the closing chapter took an unexpected approach that relates to my own four-quadrant worldview that we have four principle realms in which we operate – Body, Mind, Emotion and Soul – and need to seek balance in each for our own wellbeing. Much of my work revolves around these four quadrants, and the life wheel builds on this by further compartmentalising different aspects of each, and adding overarching themes which span multiple quadrants. Here’s what Klaus Schwabb said: The Fourth Industrial Revolution may be driving disruption but the challenges it presents are of our own making.…
