Episode 99: Body Image And The Media

Maybe it's because of the few days of good weather that we had last month but in May I noticed quite a dramatic increase in my consulting room of people upset over their body shape.
Often going as far as to say that they hate themselves for the way they look.
Yet, there are always people that are bigger, heavier, lumpier than them, people that actually couldn't care less and are happy!

Episode 98: Evolution and Adaptation

All of the species on this planet that didn't become extinct are here because at some point in their history one family became more suited to their environment in some way. They adapted to their circumstances.
The families that didn't adapt died out, because their environment changed and they didn't change with it.

Episode 97: Reflections And Regrets

In this months newsletter I'm going to write about something that seems a little morbid at first, but I'm sure you can get the right perspective on it.
My uncle died a few weeks ago and so I had a funeral to go to last month unfortunately.

In our culture funerals are usually a time for saying goodbye and grieving but I try to look on them as a celebration of someone's life rather than a commemoration of their passing.

Episode 96: Dealing With Fear

One of the most common issues that clients bring to my consulting room is Anxiety.
Either a general background sense of something bad around the corner or a specific set of circumstances that provoke an uncomfortable feeling.
Both have the same response in our body, often a churning in the stomach or butterflies accompanied with an increase in heart rate that leads to a tensing of the muscles or increase in temperature.

Episode 95: Confidence

A few weeks ago, through the Motivate Yourself Facebook page, I asked listeners to my podcast what sort of topics you'd like me to talk about and I received a lot of messages asking about confidence, social anxiety and nervousness.
Which all boil down to the same thing really, which is fear. And usually fear OF fear.
Which makes a vicious circle of anxiety that creates a belief that you aren't able to handle certain situations confidently.

Episode 94: Enthusiasm

Happy New Year!
If you've made any new years resolutions before you go any further ask yourself this question

"Why didn’t I start this last month? Or in November, or October?"

Because if they answer is "I couldn't be bothered" then you're probably not that bothered now either and should maybe get your head around it first as there's not enough enthusiasm to ensure that you succeed.

Episode 93: Tips To Relieve Christmas Stress

If you cast your mind back to when you were young you'll more than likely find that December was an exciting, fun and happy time. There was no stress as you had no pressure to do anything, no presents to have to buy and no cards to write out. And even if there was you had family around you to help you do it.

But if, as an adult, we are trying to reclaim those happy emotions of positive expectation then we're in for a bit of a shock because it's not as easy as it was when we were kids, because now we are the ones doing the running around trying to make everyone else happy.

Episode 92: Dealing With Change

At some point in our lives, we all have to cope with change. Whether that's a change in our job or our relationship, our life sometimes has to become different.

Those of you with children will probably already know how important it is to stick to routines in order to keep a baby content.
If you do the same things in the same way you get the same result.
