The Stress Series: How Does Chronic Stress Affect Your Body?

Stress is an inevitable part of life. Pleasant or unpleasant, it is a shared part of the human experience. On the plus side, stress can frequently serve as a powerful, motivating force. Without it, we might struggle to get things done or stay on track. However, more often, stress feels like an overwhelming by-product of modern living. With the abundance of everyday stressors we face, it is easy to see how we can be pushed into a state of sensory…

Exploring Your Triggers

DOWNLOAD THE TRIGGER WORKSHEET This worksheet was developed to help you explore both internal and external triggers, which lead to negative thoughts and behaviours. We often respond to our triggers with automatic thoughts or responses, which have become ingrained in us over the years. However, these thoughts are often very inaccurate - particularly when we are feeling low. Over-generalising, catastrophising, critical self-talk, mind-reading or black and white thinking are common automatic thought patterns. To disrupt these patterns, it is useful to identify alternative positive thoughts and see how…

Organising your Space (Part 1): Clearing Out

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” - Leonardo da Vinci I have always considered myself to be an organised person. However, over the past few years, I became incredibly aware of the amount of stuff I was accumulating. One honest look at my environment and I knew that my life was becoming far too overcrowded with unnecessary clutter. Many of these things I acquired by my own free will (I’m looking at you online sales). Nonetheless, it made me question – Do…

The Detox Dilemma

From juicing to teatoxing to the master cleanse, there seems to be something about the concept of detoxing which appeals to the masses. For some, it may be a quick way to lose a few pounds or atone for a less than perfect lifestyle. For others, it may seem like a proactive approach to keeping well and lowering disease risk. But is there any evidence behind this popular trend? Can we really “wipe the slate clean” when it comes to…

My Current Top 5 Moisturisers

So, I’m a little obsessed with skincare. Have I mentioned this? Although, I’m undoubtedly a bit (a lot) more gung-ho about moisturising than your average person, I think we all like knowing that we're doing what we can to look after our skin.

Old Faithful - Olay Complete Care Day Fluid Moisturiser SPF 15 (£5.99 | $8.99) I have been using Olay Complete Care…

Thoughts on Adult Bullying

It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to.  - W. C. Fields When I first heard this quote by W.C. Fields, it really resonated with me. Over the course of my adult life, I have been no stranger to bullying. Sadly, I think this is an issue many of us have to deal with, not only at work, but also within family, social or romantic relationships. Personally, I think bullying is a topic that people have a hard…
