Probiotics & anxiety

I’ve always used a probiotic supplement to help me with Reflux and digestion problems, but did you know they can also be used to help alleviate stress, mild depression and anxiety?

According to a recent study, the abundance of microbes living in our guts not only affect people’s physical health, they may also influence mental health too. A study on mice, shows that changes …

Keeping thoughts in check

I was once told by a family member that I was lucky because my Cerebral Palsy saved me, but it wasn’t Cerebral Palsy that saved me. It was my ability to dissociate and rationale in every little detail my experiences growing up, everything I needed to understand not to take my life and my experiences personally.

My over-compensating senses

If I woke up tomorrow without Cerebral Palsy, I wouldn’t be able to write in the way I do now and therefore wouldn’t have my website. Because of my specific neurological differences, where some of my senses have over-compensated, I can now write.

Health & working long hours

A study recently published in the medical journal ‘The Lancet’ identifies a link between working hours and our health. It is thought that the stress of long hours can trigger biological changes in the body, which leads to disease.

The study found that working just one extra hour a day, increases the chance of suffering a stroke over the next eight and a half years by 10 per cent, while people who work in excess of 55 hours/week  …

Emotionally balanced

Being emotionally balanced being ’emotionally stable’ is something we all need to be, but it’s not something we think about unless we’re struggling, but without it we will begin to struggle.

Emotional stability is the equivalent of us being grounded and not panicking when things go awry. The other side of emotional stability is resilience, both needed by us to withstand hardships …
