How to live a healthier lifestyle in 2021


Living a healthier lifestyle will make you feel better, both physically and mentally.  Most of us have indulged a little (or a lot!) over the festive period and are feeling slightly sluggish and lethargic, so thoughts turn to losing weight and living a healthier lifestyle.   Here are some things to think about if you are looking to adopt a more healthier lifestyle: 1.  You don’t have to eat less, you just have to eat right.  If you’re just trying to be healthier and possibly lose some weight you don’t need to start drinking kale smoothies, eat nothing but chicken and [...]

How to identify toxic people in your life


Toxic people are dangerous to your self-esteem, your inner thoughts and ultimately your mental health.  They can sometimes lurk in your closest inner circles without you realising, simply adding no benefit to your life.  These are the people who play manipulative games with you and give you the run around no matter how hard you try to make things work with them.  It can be anyone from a partner, work colleague, family member or even a close friend. The key is to identify those who are toxic and have the courage to get rid of them from your life. Identifying the [...]

Are you thriving or surviving?


Are you thriving or surviving? You only get one shot at life so you need to give it the best chance you can.  Bad experiences or any type of trauma can very quickly change your outlook on life from thriving to surviving.  So what are the differences: Thriving If you’re thriving you’re high on life, you challenge yourself daily and your goals are in sight.  You’re happy and have a positive outlook on life and your future.  You want to: 1.  Grow as a person. 2.  Develop yourself and flourish.   3.  Continuously learn new stuff. 4.  Try new things.  5.

Learning something new


Learning something new can start a whole new chapter in your life.  It can give you focus and you never know, you may discover a hidden talent.  Though we continue to learn through experience and life in general, we don’t necessarily choose to learn for the sake of fun or curiosity.  Why not?  Are we too comfortable with what we do?  Are we set in our ways?  Do we lose the will to challenge ourselves?  In my opinion the fear of failure, time and energy and a lack of motivation are the key factors that hold us back from learning something [...]

SHIT HAPPENS  We all have those days or weeks when everything goes to plan.  The sun’s shining, you’ve nailed the to do list and finally the weekend is approaching.  Nothing can take the spring out of your step or put a dampener on your day.  Then boom…. Shit happens.  It just simply arrives. No warnings. It hits you like a steam train. There’s nothing you can do about it. You just have to get on with it. Sound familiar?   It’s very easy to sit here and say you just have to get on with it but in reality that's hard.  [...]

Ways to improve your Mental Health


Today is Mental Health Awareness Day and this year's theme is 'mental health for all'.  The last 6 months have been pretty tough on everyone and lockdown has had a huge impact on our mental health.  Even those who are mentally strong have struggled at some point over the last 6 months.  Everyone, no matter who you are will experience tough times at some point in your life.  I went through a difficult time a few years ago which made me realise how important it is to take care of yourself and get the most out of life. Today I thought I [...]

How to stay positive during uncertain times


Staying positive is sometimes really hard, especially in the current climate.  During lockdown I, like many others worried about the impact it would have on my business and livelihood.  More importantly I worried about the affect it would have on the emotional and mental health of my family and I.     I think at some point every single one of us has struggled to remain positive since March.  You tell yourself to stay positive and try to push any negative thoughts away, but some days it just doesn’t work.  Over the last couple of months I’ve had lots of new [...]

Excuses, Excuses, Excuses!


Excuses, Excuses, Excuses! Every day I meet people with huge amounts of talent and wonderful dreams, but something holds them back from taking a step forward and realising their true potential.  Instead, they find themselves watching others excel in their careers or following their dreams and passions.  They make excuses not to do something and don’t understand or know what is truly holding them back. Here are 6 of the most common excuses that stop people from achieving more in their lives: 1.  I’m not ready/It’s not the right time.  When will you ever be ready?  Is there ever a right [...]

Improve your happiness and live a more contented life


We all crave happiness in many different forms.  Some people relate happiness to success at work, the ability to provide for their family and enjoy a certain quality of life.  For others, being happy is dependent on a social network; perhaps a partner or a strong network of friends who provide support and are fun to be around.  Happiness can also be found in the “things” we crave for, or long to have; such as a bigger house or a nicer car.  There are also the intangible resources we crave, such as more time to do stuff we enjoy or finding [...]

The differences between Counselling and Life Coaching


I often get asked if counselling and Life Coaching offer the same help.  The very simple answer is no, they don’t. A Life Coach can’t help everyone and seeking help from one is not always the best solution.  You might think I’m a bit silly to say that given my profession, but one thing I strongly disagree with is taking on clients who I know will benefit from a different type of help. Before you seek help from either, it’s very important to understand what both offer.  In my opinion these are the 3 main differences: Counselling supports people with mental [...]
