Change. A word a lot of us do not like the sound of. Change is scary and it is unnerving.
Sometimes it is better to keep things the way they are rather than rock the boat… right? Wrong! I agree that lifestyle changes can be pretty unsettling and can cause stress – on the other hand it can also create a lot of happiness and relief. Continue reading
Tranquility is a very a sought after and precious state of being. Originated from the Latin word ‘tranquillatas’ (trans meaning ‘exceedingly’ and quies interpreted as ‘rest’ or ‘quiet’) it is a word that we may hear mentioned every now and then but unfortunately very rarely experience. So – what is tranquil living and how can you achieve it?
People spend a lot of their lives constantly in need of such an attribute. The general consensus is that in order to obtain a trouble free and peaceful lifestyle you need to go on holiday or ‘get away from it all’. This could not be further from the truth; there is no escaping an anxious, fretful mind, regardless of where you are. Continue reading
Before I go any further, I just want to make it clear that this article is not referring to physical energy.

Should you wish to read more about maintaining and managing physical energy please see my Physical Well Being page.
Not enough time or (energy) on our hands!
I decided to take the day off in order to catch up on some bits and pieces that needed doing. When I say ‘bits and pieces’ what I actually mean is an arm and a legs worth of jobs to complete. If you have been on my website before and read my other posts etc you will know that I am a big advocate for staying calm, relaxed and in short constantly looking for new tips to have more energy all round. Well, that morning was one of those times when I thought ‘I have so much to do and I don’t know where to begin’. Christmas was in less than two weeks – you know how it is 😉 Every day you feel like you are just playing catch up with not enough energy to keep going – a constant uphill struggle that is totally not effective. What’s the solution besides running about like a headless chicken? Continue reading

In this article, I want to share with you my six best and natural ways to fight depression.
Depression can have a major effect on our lives and can really bring us down on all levels – physically, emotionally, mentally, and even spiritually.
Those affected with depression will have no desire to accomplish anything nor will they have any motivation whatsoever to make a difference in their lives or in the lives of others.
Depression can be caused by a variety of emotional, mental, & physical factors. More than that, depression can be very dangerous
Now & Then
Yes you read the title right – sexy is sexier than sex, practically and metaphorically. What do I mean by this? Well… first of all what does sexy mean now? Have you ever wondered why this world is now sex mad? When you compare this generation to 50 years ago – any sex related topic was a taboo subject, whereas now it’s the opposite. Children in the playground are talking about it in more depth than adults and if you are not ‘clued up’ you’re considered to be a prude. Coming from the UK, I am all too aware of how many girls are getting pregnant when they are still children themselves. England has the highest rate of underage pregnancy in Europe which is causing an ever perpetuating cycle of what is now known as ‘Broken Britain’. The pressure that young women are under to loose their virginity before a certain age is incredulous and I genuinely believe that the media and popular celebrities that are considered ‘role models’ have a lot to do with it. So… what does sexy mean then… is this it?
Women are now considered to be a sex symbol more than ever. Marilyn Monroe was one of the most Continue reading
“The people we are in relationships with are always a mirror, reflecting our own beliefs, and simultaneously we are mirrors, reflecting their beliefs… one of the most powerful tools for growth…” Shakti Gawain
Mirroring relationships refer to the deep connections that we have with people who are closest to us. They are the relationships that can be both good or bad, yet they will always have something in common. Mirroring relationships reflect ourselves on a deeper level, whether it be some of our best and/or worst qualities – they are the most intense because they all possess the opportunity for us to learn something… about ourselves. Should these lessons not be learnt we will find that the same mirroring relationships that consist of similar components will keep cropping up in our lives time and time again.
For example… have you ever been head over heels in love? Have you ever cared for someone so much that you’ve been willing to give up anything and everything just to be with them? Even friends and family may have told you that it was a mistake but that makes you simply more determined Continue reading
Self sabotaging behaviour is an activity that we all engage in. Whether we are aware of it or not, we love to self sabotage and unfortunately we spend the majority of our lives doing so. Most of us have big dreams and our own idea of what makes up the perfect lifestyle. We say that we want ‘this and that’ more than anything else… so how come we don’t get very far in obtaining them? Stop self sabotaging behaviour today and see how far you get. You may just surprise yourself. Continue reading

Centre Court at Wimbledon – the most prestigious tennis court in the world where the best of Wimbledon Tennis Champions have played. The one on which every professional player strives to compete…and triumph. Wimbledon tennis tournament epitomizes the sport; showcasing tennis at its very best. The likes of Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Serena Williams and Andy Murray slogging it out for the grand slam title is no doubt a first class performance and in a league of its very own.
I have never been a sports fanatic, however tennis and particularly Wimbledon tennis, has always been a sporting event I have been captivated with since a child. It has only been in recent years that I have resonated with it on a deeper level and really appreciated the psychological aspect of the game. It has been through my fascination with Wimbledon that I have studied for some time now… what makes Wimbledon tennis champions so different from all the other famous players? Continue reading
Those who appreciate the power of thought often question how to use the subconscious mind to their advantage. Over the years I have had some nasty things happen to me – who hasn’t? Physically and mentally I feel that I am over it… these inflicted wounds have been and gone and are no longer a part of me. Although I have believed that to be true I have come to the realization that unfortunately it is not. Instead, what do I find? Certain habitual traits and behaviours that have become embedded cause me to follow the same path and experience the same hardship over and over. Why is this? In this post I am going to discuss how and why this happens and how to use the subconscious mind to work with you as opposed to against you like it may have been up until now. Continue reading
