Have Anxiety? Avoid Sugar. Here’s Why.

Sugar… it’s not great for your mental health. Obviously, there are good sugars (those you find in fruits, etc.), but there is lots of bad sugar (sugar added to our foods, found in our beverages, and our “treats”).

Happy Friday |

Well I seem to be feeling myself again, after experiencing some anxiety over 4 or 5 days. I took a little time off work, stayed away from gym for 2 days (opted for sunshine and a walk outside instead) and only ate what my body felt comfortable with. I really tried to be kind to […]

Guilt and its solution

Surprisingly, there’s very little written on this topic. Yet, guilt is something we’ve all struggled with!

Weather-proofing

I have heard many wise and wonderful people speak of moods in terms of ‘weather’. Some describe the human psychological experience as being like life beneath a changeable sky, with conditions that come and go, quite beyond our control. They suggest that the only thing we can usefully do under the circumstances is to cultivate an attitude of acceptance.
