Your Emotions - When You Feel Hurt

Your Emotions – When You Feel Hurt! When you feel hurt you are usually responding to what you see as an injustice. Usually you feel hurt when you feel something isn’t fair - someone has let you down or treated you in a way you feel is not right. Often, when you feel hurt you will withdraw from the person who has hurt you and stop all communication with them. Others might see this as resentment or aloofness and some see you as sulking. Please don't Sulk! Sulking can be silent sulking or it might be angry, noisy sulking with the slamming of doors and much huffing and puffing. Sometimes you just snipe at someone close to you without saying why.  "Surely, if he loved me enough He would know why!" Often behavior like this is about getting even or punishing – at the very least you want an apology. But sulking rarely achieves the outcome that you want. It can make you more miserable than the person you believe has transgressed. Overcom

Why Telephone Coaching Works

Why Telephone Coaching Works I've  been coaching successfully by phone and Skype for a while now and clients have found it a very positive experience. It always amazes me just how powerful and effective coaching by phone can be.  But lots of people seem to have reservations about trying coaching by phone.  What phone coaching can do for you!

Time Management – Dealing with those Impossible Deadlines

Time Management - Dealing With Those Impossible Deadlines You can download a free podcast from Wendy Mason on Dealing with Impossible Deadlines at this link Do you seem to spend a lot of your time dealing with impossible deadlines? Our lives seem to be full of them! Particularly if you are ambitious and prepared to take on the interesting challenges. What about when you find yourself rushing to get the children off on that school trip? They need all that kit and it is the day you have an urgent meeting at work. And guess what! That meeting is due to start half an hour before you usually arrive at the office! Then there is the new project. The boss has given it you because you said you needed a challenge. And it is. It is close to “undoable” and very high profile. So, how many other times you found yourself with an assignment that is simply impossible to finish in the time allotted? Or, perhaps, you just have too many “urgent” tasks! So what do you

Be Successful – Making A Personal Change – Part 7 Learning To Accept Yourself | WiseWolf Talking - the Wisewolf Coaching Blog

There is new post on our sister blog WiseWolf Talking that you might enjoy "Everyone who has ever lived has had problems.  Having problems doesn’t make you a better or worse human being – nor does it make you different.  In fact it makes you truly a human being – someone who makes mistakes and sometimes suffers misfortune. You are not what you do or what happens to you.  You are you, and one of us, the vast human race.  But it is great that you want to change or improve something about yourself! If you accept yourself with what you see as flaws, it means you can concentrate on problem solving.  If you can’t accept yourself you can very easily be distracted by shame and the time you spend putting yourself down...."

Wonderful Wheatgrass

 (Photo credit: Wikipedia ) There are many claims for the health benefits of wheatgrass from providing a useful food supplement to curing various deseases. The benfits of wheatgrass were first discovered by Charles F Schnabel, an agricultural chemist. He used fresh cut grass in an attempt to nurse some dying hens back to health. The hens not only recovered, but they produced eggs at a higher rate than healthy hens. Encouraged by his results, he began drying and powdering grass for his family and neighbors to supplement their diets. The following year, Schnabel reproduced his experiment and achieved the same results. Hens consuming rations supplemented with grass doubled their egg production. Schnabel's research was conducted with wheatgrass grown outdoors in Kansas Among other things, it has been claimed that wheatgrass helps blood flow , digestion and general detoxification of the body. But these claims have not yet been proved.  Wheatgrass contains no wheat gluten. But
