Conquering fear when our jobs are at risk
Being uplifting is positively catching. A positive mental attitude has considerable impact for performance in individuals, teams and organisations.
Taking stock of what's important
It's October. Officially autumn or fall and the month of Halloween when we are allowed to scare our children. It's a peculiar thing this notion of gaining excitement from fear when at the same time the last thing anyone wants is to live in fear.
Autumn is not perhaps the ‘traditional’ time to think about taking stock of our lives, we seem to want to do this in the new year, but the fact of the matter is it’s always a good time to stop, reflect and take stock of our lives. After all, if we want to change why put off a new beginning?
Women and the guilt complex
How do we women prepare for, and manage, the many changes in our lives. Do we have the wrong or the right clothing? Are we ready for the hormonal, emotional, personal and professional events in our lives?
How can I be the authentic me?
If ever there was a common prevailing emotion typically shared by women, it is one of ‘guilt’. But what exactly is the offence or crime which women feel they have committed? Who is the prosecutor, the judge and the jury? And who, or rather where, is our defence?
Why are women's retreats a catalyst for change?
Recognising our strengths and our values provides a boost to our self confidence. Acknowledging that our flaws are frequently our over-used strengths, means that we are better able to accept and own who we are. This leads to us being able to find our voice and articulate our wants and needs through exploring our values and purpose in life.
Women’s retreats are undoubtedly on the rise, growing in popularity for both businesses and individuals. With the increasing demands of juggling child and elderly care, domestic chores, and work, the retreat uniquely offers the time and space to consider who you are, where you are and how you want to be.
Passenger or pilot?
As modern society becomes increasingly more sedentary it is essential to integrate more basic movement into our lives. Even if you attend a class regularly or go to the gym a few times a week, it is not enough if you are sitting for the rest of your day.
In life you are either a passenger or a pilot – it’s your choice… This is particularly important when it is your OWN life you are talking about.
