Recovery, Russell Brand.

I surprised myself by buying this book. I was also taken aback when I saw that I bought the audio book last year, more about that later.

I was scrolling through my Facebook feed, as you do,  and I saw the image of a video that I'd seen before. This time though my audio was set to on; so the first few seconds of it played. They were enough for me to watch the rest of the video.

It was Russell Brand. In my head, I was wondering how could this man who was at the very edges of society now...

Just What Is Positive Psychology?

This is a really important question and the answer is not as simple as it seems. Before I go into what I believe positive psychology is and how it can contribute to the world of well-being lets look at the technical definition. “Positive Psychology is the scientific study of human flourishing, and an applied approach to optimal functioning. It has also been defined as the study of the strengths and virtues that enable individuals, communities and organisations to thrive” (Gable...

It's Not As Morbid As It Sounds. Honest!

I want you to write your own obituary. There I said it. Be patient with me and you’ll see why this can create such a significant turning point in your life. Most people have heard of the Nobel Peace Prize, it was set up by Alfred Nobel. What most people do not know about him is that he was the Swedish inventor and engineer who invented dynamite.

In 1998 I was on the way to the gym after work and was involved in a major car accident which left me unable to even peel a potato!

In this blog post, we look at pain and the power of the mind.

When one experiences pain it is really difficult to focus on anything else. If you have ever been in a...

Hung Up On Perfectionism? It's Easy If You Do It Smart

As a long term perfectionist in this post I am going to look at the different types of perfectionism and what you can do to respond to them.

I don’t know if you have ever thought about this but there are different types of perfectionism.

One is neurotic perfectionism, which is the extreme form: a neurotic perfectionist allows their achievements to define them while setting unrealistically high standards for themselves at the expense of everyone and everything else in their life.

And To My Hero...

Matthew McConaughey is a Hollywood actor who in my opinion delivered one of the best Oscar acceptance speeches ever. Read it out loud if you can. The words are powerful –

“And to my hero. That’s who I chase. Now when I was 15 years old, I had a very important person in my life come to me and say “who’s your hero?” And I said, “I don’t know, I gotta think about that. Give me a couple of weeks.” I come back two weeks later, this person comes...
