Keep Holding On - Behind The Clouds, The Sun Still Shines!

Keep Holding On - Behind The Clouds, The Sun Still Shines! 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   It’s hard to be patient. But as one of my favourite quotes goes ‘’Things are happening behind the scenes, if not visible on the surface.”  So when you feel the rollercoaster of life has broken down for you, and you’re watching everyone else fly past you (or that’s what it feels like) know that it is just taking a breather to make things better in your life.  When there’s nothing going on in your life, just know that something is making its way to you.  When everything is going on in your life, you forget about the little things that troubled you. For instance, I entered a competition and the end date was the day I moved into university for my first year. Now I forgot all ab

You have to be able to make yourself happy.  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   A lot of exciting things have happened to me this week!  And good things might not come in hordes or bundles, they might be one at a time but that will make you appreciate them for what they are more at the time!  If you want good things to happen, understand that they won’t all happen at once! Life doesn’t work like that.  Only one good thing actually happened for me this week, but because of that I got to re-live one of my best memories on my blog! So I made it into ‘a lot of things’.  And that’s what you have to do sometimes. Y ou have to be able to make yourself happy.  When there’s not much going on, you need to be able to make yourself smile. Find a book you can lose yourself in or a

Healthy Living:Get going every day

Healthy Living:Get going every day This post is from the  Change4Life   website Many of us aren't too keen on the idea of exercise. It might be that we’re too busy or we simply can’t face the thought of it. But most people are not getting the amount of activity they need to stay healthy. Only 1 in 20 people are actually doing the right kind of activity they need each week. And sitting down for hours – maybe at work, watching TV or playing computer games - can also increase the risk of poor health. Building activity into your day keeps your heart healthy, reduces your risk of serious illness and strengthens muscles and bones. It can also be a great way of reducing your stress levels and lifting your mood if you’re feeling down. That means: Adults needs to be active for at least 150 minutes each week Kids aged five to 16 need to be active for at least 60 minutes each day Kids under five need three hours of activity a day  Activities for adults For adults, it ca

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 have a magic wand to whisk away all of your problems.  Heck if I did, I definitely wouldn't be in this predicament.  But I do have the power of words, which in the words of Dumbledore, are the most inexhaustible source of magic, both capable of inflicting injury and remedying it!  Celebrities are admirable because they are actors, dress in a particular way or are singers.  The people we regard as strong are people who act as though everything is OK, even and perhaps especially, when the world is falling down on them.  Singers are breaking the mould into acting nowadays, whether it’s just in music videos or like Jennifer Lopez, acting is where they made their name. And it seems e

Tuesday Clinic: When You Make A Mistake! We all mistakes! There isn't a human being alive who doesn't  – we all do. That is why, when people do work where accuracy is critical, systems are usually put in place to inspect and assure it. We make mistakes in all parts of our lives, not just at work. So, when you make a mistake, what do you do next? Well I think the first big step is to accept you did make a mistake. Most of us are very good at coming up with excuses. Underneath we usually know the truth. Once you have admitted to yourself what happened, you need to make sure that your mistake causes no further damage. Do whatever you can to put things right or at least make sure that what you did doesn't cause any further harm. That can be difficult when the mistake is to do with wrong choices in a relationship at home or at work. At times like that it often helps to talk to a friend or to a coach like me. Part of putting things right often means being ready to go

Are you feeling stuck in the maze?

Are you feeling stuck in the maze? When I talk to new life coaching clients the most common words I hear are;  “Can you help please? I feel stuck". It usually makes me think of someone lost in a maze surrounded by high hedges with no idea how to go forward or back. And sadly most have forgotten exactly how they got here. They are well and truly stuck. It doesn’t feel good to be stuck in a maze where all paths seem to lead nowhere. Of course, it is an illusion. There is a way to the centre and back again out into the wider world if you can get up high enough to see or you have a map. And that is I suppose what working with a life coach is about.  Finding a way to get up high, taking the broader perspective, or at least a different one, working out where you want to be in the big wide world and making a plan. Climbing that ladder or getting into the helicopter on your own can be frightening.  You need confidence to do it.  And when you have been st

You Are Amazing By Stephanie Carfrae 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 think you’re amazing,’ someone says to someone else, but it doesn’t matter who, because they’re all amazing really. People are amazing.’ An insightful quotation from David Nicholls in his amazing book One Day. And it’s so true.  Whether your wings are still forming, you’re still metamorphosing or your wings are fledging, or you’ve already taken flight, YOU ARE amazing.  Always believe that. Even when the world seems to have turned its back on you, there is a star somewhere shining for you. Always have the confidence to believe that. Because YOU ARE worth it.  Anybody who tells you that you aren’t are merely jealous because they want to be who you are, or they are pessimists.  When you know

Healthy Living: Healthy Fats Won’t Make You Fat

AV Number: AV-8812-3430 . (Photo credit: Wikipedia ) Healthy Living:  Healthy Fats Won’t Make You Fat 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/ There seems to be a lot of confusion over the food group ‘fats’, with most people assuming that all fats are bad for them. Many people seem to believe that eliminating all fat from their diet is the best way to lose weight quickly and effectively. Contrary to popular belief, this is not the case. Fats are actually an essential part of our everyday diet and are needed to help maintain a healthy lifestyle, however, only some fats are beneficial to us and should be eaten regularly; this is where the confusion regarding

My Belief By Stephanie Carfrae 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   When I find myself facing a task I don’t like or that I think will take a long time if I get involved.  I just imagine myself not being able to do that particular thing ever again. It helps me stop putting things off.   Having infinity to get things done is a nice idea but that’s all it can ever be because time is so precious. Life is unpredictable at the best of times.  After I’ve had a good time at an occasion, I just use that as inspiration to do what I need to.  Life is an unpredictable waiting game.  You never know what is coming next. Which is why it can be exciting.  When you’re going through a really hard time, it seems it will never improve. But there is always a ray of light somewhere. I

Healthy Living: Shut Up and Squat. 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/ From the outset, it may seem strange that I am choosing to write an entire article solely on squats.  After all, you may be thinking, it is just one exercise. The squat is not just one exercise; it is the exercise of all exercises. If you want to see impressive results in a short space of time then you cannot afford to miss squats out of your exercise routine. Squats help to build muscle all over your body; they actually create an anabolic environment which means that they contribute to a person’s ability to build muscle everywhere and not just in your lower half. Although they h
