I wish you a merry Christmas?
by Reece Wood

Christmas and New year holidays have come around again and wow I just got over the last one. Really tell me it is not true. Sorry, it is rushing upon us.

Are you someone that dislikes or has bad memories of Christmas?
Are you someone who gets stressed or anxious around this time whether emotionally or financially?

You are not alone, and many people share these sentiments with many studies indicating about a third of people have issues with the holidays.

'Age' is not the issue.
by Helen Gray

I was told in my twenties weight gain would start.

I was told in my thirties, having three children would make me overweight with a hanging stomach.

We are constantly told what to expect as we age and how life experiences will dictate our physical health.


Coach Phoebus Apostolidis

But what if I fail?
by Phoebus Apostolidis

Fear of failure is real. It gets in the way of the things that we want to do.

The problem with it is that we often are not even aware that it is keeping us back. We just have this discomfort, this anxiety that builds around the very thing we are craving to do.

DO YOU DELAY GETTING THINGS DONE?!!!
by Katie Tsangaris

We all face procrastination in one form or another, sometimes it's little daily chores, other times it's big life changing decisions. It is basically delaying or putting things off, not being motivated enough to get started or make decisions - from the simple getting up early and having a healthy breakfast, cleaning out the kitchen drawers to making life changing decisions - procrastination can hold us back and keep us stuck in negative spirals of self-defeating lethargy.

COMMUNICATE FROM A PLACE OF PRESENCE NOT PAST!
by Katie Tsangaris

When you are stuck in the past carrying events and situations that you experienced as negative, these are held as traumas and can remain unresolved. From this place, you then react to people, situations and your own thoughts from this limited perspective.

Changing the way think at about our bodies!
by Ian Richards-Thomas (He/Him)

Changing the way we think requires daily effort, just the same as keeping your teeth healthy requires daily brushing.
