self love

Whether you’re sick of hiding away your body or tired of trying to silence the nagging, incessant voice inside your head telling you ‘you’re not good enough…you’re too lazy/stupid/unattractive/…’ – it’s time to make a change.

Our biggest mistakes, our greatest loves, our most painful betrayals or beautiful friendships;... Read more »

Get In Touch With Your Inner Superhero – And Fight Back Against Ego!

Superheroes

The ego – many would describe this to be the voices that we all have in our heads. The little voice at the back of our mind, perhaps telling us that we will never be good enough; that we are not smart enough, pretty enough, brave enough or productive enough. The ‘ego’ is our internal narrative.  Sometimes it has a point – when we are not trying hard enough and need to work harder, for example. But mostly, it is the incessant nag in the back of our mind, filling us with self-doubt and reinforcing our fears often when we need courage most. When we are feeling small or stuck, it is our ego that can most... Read more »

Why Your Opinion Is The Only One That Counts

Only-Your-Opinion-Counts

Do you find it difficult to make decisions or changes in your life, without seeking reassurance from the opinions of those around you? If the answer is yes, then you are not alone. As a society, we have become far too pre-occupied with what others may think of us. Arguably, our constant need for approval and a desire to ‘fit-in’ is a big part of what makes us human. After all, it is this need to ‘fit-in’ that has helped us to survive and evolve as a species.

10 Things You Should Never Put Up With

Never-Put-Up-With

Many of us have learnt to go through life, ‘putting up’ with things. Aside from the obvious negatives that we have to grin and bear in life, such as bad weather, traffic jams or paying taxes, there is no reason for the grey fog of ‘tolerance’ that we have allowed to settle over our lives.
