Signs of bullying

20 Jan 2017

Bullying is a form of abuse. It’s not always obvious of course because it’s a bad tone and is a possible reason why we fail to see that what’s being said and the way what’s being said, is in fact abuse.

When it comes to bullying, we must be aware of what form bullying takes; or what the other person’s tactics are. As with all forms of bullying we must become adept at noticing and …

2017, a different Era

19 Jan 2017

I feel 2017 has catapulted us into a different era, a different more uncertain world. Not one that I like and a world that’s not easy to get my head around.

With Northern Ireland’s lack of a coalition government, the UK’s Brexit, Teresa May and now the impending inauguration of Donald Trump, it’s hard to say or understand where we go from here …

Work & illness

16 Jan 2017

We don’t stop to think about stress at work, but our working life can not only be stressful, but it also has the potential to make us ill.

We won’t always be consciously aware that we’re becoming ill, but the signs are there. Working full time and working overtime, can be extremely stressful, particularly if there is no let up. The amount of …

My stress

15 Jan 2017

Sorting our issues out very much depends on what’s going on around us, but that if we all worked together, our issues would not only get sorted out, but they would get sorted out quicker.

Given my blog it would be easy to conclude that my life’s in order. That my stress is sorted out. We would all have to be working off the same page for our …

How we may change

13 Jan 2017

The only limits are the ones we create for ourselves, but a deeper understanding of our lives and where we can make changes will present us with an opportunity to make momentous decisions that once we didn’t think we could.

We need to have passion too, because without passion we may never fulfil our potential to work on change to be successful, or happy. Although it seems hard to change, it’s not as hard as we think …

Winter boost suggestions

12 Jan 2017

As soon as the hot weather turns to cold, followed by dark early nights, energy levels begin to dip and so does our mood.

Below are my tips that should help us all function better:

Avoid coffee, and eating foods that contain refined sugars, including processed foods and instead opt for seasonal greens and rainbow vegetables, which are packed with antioxidants and fibre;
Keep hydrated by drinking anything between 6-8 glasses (200ml per glass) of water a day. Avoid carbonated drinks and black tea;
Omega-3 fatty acids are also of benefit …

Feeling guilt

11 Jan 2017

There’s a photograph I go back to, primarily because it reminds me of the life I had where I didn’t know about my physical disabilities. I was 9 years old.

It reminds me of a life lost, a life troubled, a lie; it wasn’t me. It was a different version of me. That was my life until I found out. I feel the rug has been pulled from under my feet and feel guilt too …
