Quick question!

Last week I noticed that my Sky TV hard drive box was getting full. There were a lot of satirical news programmes that I hadn’t watched and they were probably out of date. There were documentaries about topics that if I was really that interested in I’d have watched them by now. And it made me question why I’d set them to record in the first place.
The conclusion I came to was that it was FOMO. If you’ve never seen that acronym before it stands for Fear Of Missing Out. Which is something…

Clients will often tell me that they feel overwhelmed with even the simple things in life, their house is a mess and they just don’t know where to start putting it right.
They feel that there’s so much to do that it’s easier to just do nothing and watch everything gather dust, further contributing to their depression and self esteem issues.
So occasionally someones homework is ...

Last week Ant McPartlin spoke out about his struggles with Depression and Anxiety. Making it public because he thinks that it’s important that people going through a rough time ask for help so as to get proper treatment. Great! But he followed it by also saying 'I feel like I have let a lot of people down and for that I am truly sorry.' That’s the part I didn’t like, because...

When I woke up on Tuesday morning last week I thought the worst thing that had happened was that Roger Moore had died.
Turns out he wasn’t on his own as on Monday evening a bomb had been detonated at a concert in Manchester killing 22 people, 7 of them children.
Tuesday became a day of mourning, not just in Manchester, but throughout the UK and all over world.

Being British it’s always a pleasure to see a bit of sunshine, especially this time of year when it’s unexpected, and a few weeks ago we had a weekend where the sun shone and the temperature was the same as it is in the summer.
And, whilst relaxing and watching my son bounce on a trampoline in the garden my wife said to me “If it was always like this, people would be a lot happier.”
My instincts were to agree and I started to nod my head in agreement before stepping back and thinking about it first.

It’s almost Easter already and even though we’ve put the clocks forward it seems like only yesterday when we put them back an hour in the Autumn.
Time flies! I’ve mentioned before that 12 months to a 60 year old will obviously feel 6 times quicker than it does to a 10 year old but there’s also another reason.

Political divisiveness often gives rise to a tirade of reasons on social media why the other side is wrong.
With the rise of right wing extremism throughout Europe and the USA there seems to be a lot of people wanting Brexit to fail and Donald Trump to fail as President simply to prove themselves right.
But it’s worth looking at these things with a more positive stance. Whether you think these are good ideas or not we should still want things to work out well.

It’s a new year!
Time to join in with the tradition that every January we draw a line in the sand and decide to do something different with our lives.
Because doing it in November or December just feels wrong!
I say every year we MUST question whether or not we really want those changes if we waited until January to make them, but there are times when the beginning of a new year will help us to start some new habits or get rid of old ones and so I’m happy to jump on the new year-new you bandwagon with some tips for you.
So, if you are making new years resolutions, these are ways to help them stick.

I have a question for you dear reader.
How much of your real life do you reveal to the external world around you?

If someone asks you how you are, do you bombard them with your frustrations about your selfish spouse? Or about how you feel that your life is going by too quickly and there’s a sense of impending doom everywhere you go?

Or do you say “Fine thanks, you?”.

Many people fall for the mistaken belief that being likeable is linked to something innate and unlearned, something you must be born with.
As if it’s linked to how attractive or talented you are.
Yet in reality being likeable is simply a matter of understanding other people, empathy. A skill that can easily be learned.

There’s a lot of extremes around lately I’ve noticed.
Whether that’s religious extremism or political extremism it seems that you don’t have to go very far to hear a strong opinion about something from someone.

I regularly talk about finding a middle ground in life, too much concern vs too little concern that sort of thing and that moderate way of thinking doesn’t fit in well with the extremists so it can be difficult to learn how to pull yourself in a little, but it’s not impossible.

Understanding how we formulate these opinions can be very useful though, so here goes.

Firstly let’s look at our ego.
One thing that crops up a lot is that we like to be right…
