How to Stay Sane When You Are Incredibly Busy

How to Stay Sane When You Are Incredibly Busy

How we cope with stress, anxiety, fatigue and general goodness and badness depends to a big extent on the individual. If you’re like us, you rest very little (at least you don’t think you have time to) and are on the go constantly.

So how do we cope and thrive?

Radio Calisthenics in Japan

Radio Calisthenics in Japan
Japan as a country is full of innovation. The Japanese are known around the world for their great innovations, particularly in the field of car manufacturing and electronics. Yet they aren't so famous for their innovations in exercise regimes  - and that's something that needs to change.

What I Blog About When I Blog About Blogging

What I Blog About When I Blog About Blogging
An Editor of a magazine that I did some freelance work for told my his favourite pieces that I wrote for them were when I was angry. The best pieces represented what I was passionate about. If you’re commissioned to write something that isn’t your first love then make sure you inject your personality into your writing.

I'm Looking at The Man in the Mirror

Here we explore what BDD is and why it's far more prevalent than you may realise....and whether you might be suffering from it...and what to do next. Most importantly, understand how you can create a mindset where you can help yourself and others, gain confidence and recognise when you need to help yourself and others.

Run Like Hell from the Macaque

Run Like Hell from the Macaque
Turn and run – because those negative thoughts (the macaques) will be back soon enough at the most inconvenient times, when they really aren’t helpful. They will drain you, scare the hell out of you and freeze you on the spot. They also break into your rooms, drinks the beers, pee on your stuff and eat your medication.

Let’s Talk About Auditions Baby, Let’s Talk About You and Me

So, when people who have 9 to 5 jobs tell you that life is really hard, whilst you’re spending you’re days preparing for and attending auditions…life doesn’t seem quite right does it?

I mean, who can imagine just turning up, doing some work and being paid…whilst we struggle with the psychological affects of being turned down from one thing to the next?

Wedding Bell Stress

Wedding Bell Stress

Getting married is an exciting time with lots of lovely things, happy faces, spending more time with loved ones and generally getting to have some really fun times.

We hear that organising and planning a wedding can be stressful – in fact it’s often included as one of the most stressful events in someone’s life. 

How to Make Every Day a New Year’s Day

How to Make Every Day a New Year’s Day

At New Year, people make resolutions to improve their life, that of others and sometimes plans to take over the world. But why should they just be for New Year?

Apparently, one of the most popular self-help topics is centred around how to make a fresh start. We can make that a lot easier for you – we can do that every day – probably even more often than just once a day.

Redundancy; A Survival Pack Series for Dealing with Life When You’ve Been Shafted. Part One.

Like many people who managed to still breathe around 2007-2012 and even now, we lived through the recession. We still bear the scars of barely surviving - only to find that post-recession is pretty damn hard too. Yet for others, the recession and people loosing their jobs seems to be an urban myth.

Why I do the Yoga thing - A Rebel's Guide to Yoga

Why I do the Yoga thing - A Rebel's Guide to Yoga

So, I wanted to write about why I use Yoga and what it means to me. After I all, I wrote about and advocated it in Become Your Own Champion, I follow countless Yogi's on social media and yes...I got to Yoga!

Before I went to yoga, I didn't really get the 'thing' about it, it had become the trendy and 'in' thing to do, which to me meant it was probably not something I should do.

Loosing Everything and Gaining Freedom?

Loosing Everything and Gaining Freedom?
Lately I’ve become obsessed with serendipity. I say ‘lately’ because until a ew weeks ago, I didn’t believe in it – or perhaps more correctly, understand it. After all, how can something that is meant to be positive and by chance possible come from a professional career falling apart through no other reason that wrong place, wrong time or ten years and the recession, mixed with continuous injury and mixed with a very long spell of really, really bad luck.
