Making the tea. When you feel the fear!

Making the tea. When you feel the fear! Here is another post from contributor, Stephanie Carfrae. She is a Creative Writing Graduate; you can find her own blog  at   www.stephcarfrae.blogspot.co.uk   and I think you will be inspired by Stephanie's  first video on  YouTube    You are arrested by your own fears.  You are the only one stopping you. "Because I might get laughed at!" "Because I might get it wrong!" Sound familiar?  If you never try, you’ll never know. You could be the best.  But a reluctance to face what you could be great at is, of course, a holdback.  If you’re strong enough to not want regrets, you need to let go of your fears. Though people may laugh at the start, when it becomes your norm, people who appreciate you will laugh at them!  Just because someone doesn’t believe in something, it doesn’t mean it’s wrong for you.  My parents are very protective of me and won’t even let me make a cup of tea! Crazy I know: they are on

Healthy Living: Staying On Track

Healthy Living: Staying On Track Today's post is from contributor - Natasha Gelder. Natasha is a full time Literature student based in Leeds who is juggling the quests for higher education, money and rock hard abs. She believes exercising is a vital part of a healthy, balanced lifestyle and should not be seen as a chore .  You can find her blog here  http://natashajadegelder.wordpress.com/ Many of us make plans or promises that we end up breaking because something unexpected turns up in our daily lives that we need to deal with. If we have a list of things that we need to do, it is often the ‘go to the gym’ section of the list that gets cast aside as we opt for tasks such as ‘do the weekly food shop’. Our good intentions often get pushed aside for things deemed as more useful. But what is possibly more useful to you than your health? You need to make time for it. You need to stop letting other things get in the way of your workouts. Set time aside specifically for them, i

Great New Video from Róisín O - Hold On

Image
Great New Video from Róisín O - Hold On I've had the privilege over the last couple of days to preview a video from Róisín O. It so lovely. The video is released today and catch it if you can.  She has the most fantastic voice - the kind that raises those little hairs on you arm. Her voice resonates right through to your heart. This is what Róisín herself has to say about the song; "Sometimes our minds take us to dark places and it gets hard to escape. A very close friend of mine was going through a tough time, as happens us all, and I found myself wanting, but unable, to help make things better for him. Sometimes all you can do for someone is to be there for them  and let them know that things will get better one day. This song is for him." The song touched me deeply because over the last few months a number of different people in my life have been going through difficult times and all I have been able to do has been to witness! The v

Don't regret Here is another post from contributor, Stephanie Carfrae. She is a Creative Writing Graduate; you can find her own blog  at   www.stephcarfrae.blogspot.co.uk   and I think you will be inspired by Stephanie's  first video on  YouTube    'I don’t regret anything I have done or anyone I met. There was a reason for every one – either they’re long lasting friends or they’re to teach me about distance or to show me that holding onto something isn’t worth it. I only regret the time I wasted not making the most of every moment – when, at uni, I used to stay in every night – not making anything happen when I could have. You never know what could happen. Don’t waste it. You only get one chance. So go be free. No one has the right to tell you how to live. I know the future may appear dismal right now, but I promise somewhere there is a star waiting to shine above you. In life, there are 3 things you need: A wishbone; A backbone; A funny

She believes exercising is a vital part of a healthy, balanced lifestyle and should not be seen as a chore .  You can find her blog here  http://natashajadegelder.wordpress.com/ If you think that you live a pretty healthy lifestyle but seem to be gaining a few pounds that you can’t quite explain then why not try just a few minor alterations to your daily diet? This could be enough to enable you to lose inches off your waistline without even really trying; swapping a few of your everyday food staples for healthier options is enough to get you looking and feeling better in as little as a week. If you are consuming a lot of alcohol then you are also consuming a lot of empty calories. Some people find excessive drinking causes

e-happiness: everything happens for a reason Here is another post from contributor, Stephanie Carfrae. She is a Creative Writing Graduate; you can find her own blog  at   www.stephcarfrae.blogspot.co.uk   and I think you will be inspired by Stephanie's  first video When you move house you adapt it to suit your needs . Situations/catastrophes happen in your life so you can do the same. And although you may not think it at the time, these things occur to make you stronger. And nothing ever happens in the same way again. The changes may be subtle, or it becomes a choice.  Everything has an underlying reason behind it, though it’s not always clear why certain things happen. It may be a small reason, but it all adds up. And you will become a stronger person because of them.  Mark my words!  There is nothing you can do in certain situations and you just have to endure them. It is hard. For instance, when my grandfather died I kept thinking ‘maybe if I had done this di

Healthy Living: The Advantages of Weight Training Today's post is from contributor - Natasha Gelder. Natasha is a full time Literature student based in Leeds who is juggling the quests for higher education, money and rock hard abs. She believes exercising is a vital part of a healthy, balanced lifestyle and should not be seen as a chore. You can find her blog here  http://natashajadegelder.wordpress.com/ It is common knowledge that cardiovascular workouts are an effective way to burn fat and ultimately lose weight. Many people feel that cardiovascular activity is the only way to lose weight quickly and, for this reason, tend to stick to the treadmills and rowing machines rather than trying out any other form of gym equipment. Another effective way to burn fat, which tends to surprise people, is weight training. Many people overlook weight training and decide against using it in their workout regimes because they just assume it cannot aid them in terms of their weig

You Are Unique - It Is Time To Be Proud! Here is another post from contributor, Stephanie Carfrae. She is a Creative Writing Graduate; you can find her own blog  at   www.stephcarfrae.blogspot.co.uk   and I think you will be inspired by Stephanie's  first video on  YouTube    I was told once that I was really strong because I just don’t care do I?  I do care if you’re important to me. But if it’s a once in a lifetime experience or if I’ll never see the people from a certain situation again I don’t.  Life is too short to worry about what people think of you.  It doesn’t matter what people think of you, as long as you’re happy. When your happiness shines through they can grimace all they like, but they won’t be able to take away your experience. And that’s what life’s all about, experiencing things.  Although it may be a risk, you’ve got to try it else you never know if it’ll work out. And this involves making mistakes too. Lots of them. Everybody makes them.  At

Natasha is a full time Literature student based in Leeds who is juggling the quests for higher education, money and rock hard abs. She believes exercising is a vital part of a healthy, balanced lifestyle and should not be seen as a chore. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication for someone to get into good physical shape and the feeling of success that comes with it truly is amazing. You’ve got the body you have always wanted and now you can start enjoying life to the full, but you still need to take the time to maintain your new shape once you have finally achieved it, something which can be incredibly time consuming. It is easy to slip back into old habits when you are always on the go; often it is easier to grab fast food when you’re busy rather than preparing your lunch in advance. You may also find yourself struggling to find the time to fit in a visit to the gym, meani
