The Hairbrush

I bought this hair brush in Boots, Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow about 25 years ago. At that time it cost me about £6. And it is still here going strong. What does this have to do with you and your ability to flourish and thrive? 

THIS post is about how people often take care of inanimate objects more than they take care of themselves. But with a little attention it is easy to take care of yourself in a way that you are experiencing joy, and feeling fully alive, and engaged with...

What knowledge are you ignoring?

 

We have a huge amount of knowledge and information that we have access to, yet we ignore it.

Today, I was re-arranging my book shelf when I came across a book that I owned, that I have been trying to find in my local libraries! This got me thinking about how much knowledge we have, or is accessible to us that we simply ignore. We don't use it. I find it really strange that we don't tap into that information. The books are just left on the shelf, the courses are done and any advice...

How Can You Live Longer?

 

Today's topic is something really important. Should we be looking at how we can live longer, or should we be looking at how we can improve our lives?

Some people seem to spend a significant amount of money in order to live longer. This could be through diet and nutrition or fancy gizmos like cryo-chambers.

For me, I think it's about improving the quality of our lives as much as living longer. So bio-hacking and strategies to prolong our lives are great and useful for all of us. There...

How Do You Implement What You Learn In Your Life?

 

 

I want you to think about the difference between understanding something conceptually and then applying it.

For example, I'm sure everyone knows, or has heard that we shouldn't take our mobile phones to bed. Yet, how many of us still do? So many of us do the things that we know we shouldn't be doing. We have an academic or conceptual understanding of something that we know is good for us, but we don't do it. There are plenty of examples like this - exercise, meditation, eight...

Whose Agenda Are You Focusing On?

 

 

Whose agenda are you focusing on? It's easy for us to lose focus on ourselves and we often spend time focusing on other people. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but are you claiming any time back for your own agenda?

Sometimes, focusing on other people's problems is the right thing to do. There's no doubt about that. However, there are times when you must bring your focus back to yourself.

You may be a parent, or a carer, or responsible for looking after elderly parents, but...

Is Fear Or Worry Stopping You From Doing Something?

 

 

Is fear or worry stopping you from doing something?

Often in our lives there are big dreams and ambitions. Things we want to do. However, we have a tendency to automatically think about what if it goes wrong!

This isn't rational. This fear is NOT rational. We're worried about things that haven't even happened. But the fear is so bad it stops us and makes us come up with a million excuses to not do those things.

What is that thing you want to do, yet fear is stopping you?

It's...

What Is Underneath Your Noses That You Are Ignoring?

 

 What is underneath your nose, that you are ignoring?

Underneath mine was a foam roller. They help you when you experience a lot of muscular pain from exercising. As regular readers know, I've been trying to improve my health and fitness over the last year. I kind of see this as my last chance to do something about my health and I need to fix this situation or the coming years are going to be a lot harder.

Since the beginning of the year, I've been going to the gym and have started...
