With December well and truly upon us, here are my tips for a stress-free - or at least a lower stress - Christmas:
We all know that exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle and there is growing evidence that walking in green spaces, be it a park or open countryside, have marked benefits for our mental and physical health.
I know what it’s like, we’re all busy and have commitments that pull us in different directions: work, family, friends… However, how much time do you actually spend looking after yourself?
Why is it that it that you sometimes get in your own way and stop yourself reaching your goals? This is self-sabotage, which is when you allow negative thoughts and feelings to change your behaviour with the end result that you end up resisting positive change.
Fears hold us back in many different ways. Facing these fears and breaking them down can be truly liberating. Use these tips to allow you to let go of what is holding you back.

Life seems to run at a frenetic pace these days, and it is little surprise that many people can feel overwhelmed. However, it is possible to regain more control over what is happening by making a few small changes to free up more time.

The school summer holidays are upon us, and for many of my clients the delicate juggling act of work, family and their own needs becomes ever more complicated. How can you enjoy the summer rather than feel you are just getting by? Whatever the reason that summer is complicated for you, these tips will help you keep your cool.
Playtime is something that is associated more with children, but adults need to play too. Yes, really! In fact, having fun can boost the immune system, improve relationships and your ability to deal with stress, according to the National Institute of Play. How can you get involved and what exactly is play?
Maybe you want to make changes to your life, but you are not sure where to start. First of all, ask yourself where you want to be. Think big. What have you always wanted to do?
Do you find it hard to make decisions? Do you find a constant roll of ‘what ifs’ going around and round your mind? How can you tame your mind and the ‘what ifs’ to help you spend your energy more positively?
A frequent source of conflict is others not behaving as you think they should. It can be infuriating and a huge cause of stress. Many of us set about trying hard to change the other person, or get in a huff about how unreasonable they are. Does this sound familiar?
