Are you on the hedonistic treadmill?

Are you on the hedonistic treadmill?

Everyone would like to be rich if they could, wouldn’t they?  Most people (myself included) can’t say that they never dream about winning the Lottery or getting the top prize on a game show or something like that – essentially so that rather than having to consider how much I can spend on something I can have it right away. This attitude might not be the healthiest or the best for me though, even if I did manage to   A fantastic article this week from — Read more →

Stressed teachers lose 52,000 days a year

Stressed teachers lose 52,000 days a year

Teachers across the country might be preparing to take a well-deserved summer holiday, but for many of them it’s not just deserved but an essential break from a job that’s exceptionally stressful. A new study from the Welsh branch of the National Union of Teachers (NUT Cymru) has found that stress-related absence among teachers has risen in over half of the principality’s local authorities to a massive 51,795 school days during the last academic year. The total cost of this in terms of arranging supply — Read more →

Building a happier world

Building a happier world

Happiness is something that everyone wants, it’s one of our most basic needs and can be the centre of a healthy and better life, but it’s something that can often be elusive. Just because something is elusive doesn’t mean that it’s not worth pursuing though, and that’s why happiness is being taken seriously though around the world, with Governments beginning to set out plans to improve their citizens’ wellbeing rather than simply focussing on tangible goals. The theory behind this is that by embracing the — Read more →

Sleep better and work better

Sleep better and work better

The modern work environment often means that we cannot escape work when we go home and many of us are prone to not being able to switch off at night when we should be going to sleep because of worries about work.  This means that rather than getting the rest we need ahead of the next day’s events we’re stuck in a cycle of feeling tired and less alert. It’s also worth considering the thousands, if not millions, or people who work “shift work” outside — Read more →

A healthy diet = A happy mind

A healthy diet = A happy mind

It may not always have been this way, but we as a society are slowly improving in our perception of health – and perhaps one of the most important elements of that is that we are beginning to realise that being healthy physically, with plenty of exercise and a good diet, can have massive benefits to our mental health (and vice versa). All this might go without saying but there’s still a major problem here in the UK with our collective eating habits, and while — Read more →

No such thing as boundaries in friendship

No such thing as boundaries in friendship

Friendship exists between the Dalai Lama and influential Popstar Lady Gaga. I bet you never thought you’d hear me say those words! They were recently filmed having a 20-minute discussion putting the world to rights on topics like materialism, kindness in the world, and that change is in the hands of the younger generations. I promise, it is a worthwhile watch.trevordiy.wordpress.com Surely we all can recognise “His Holiness” as a credible source of perspective on all things positivity, to many he is a wonderful inspiration. — Read more →

Discovering peace in your office

Discovering peace in your office

We all know that practices like meditation and yoga can be great stress-relievers for at home. But what about putting those, and other, tools to use in the office?Краска для кафельной плитки Turns out, it’s not only healthy but necessary. That’s because what happens at work is affecting many of us out of the office. Behind money, work is the second-biggest stressor. It translates into fatigue and irritability as well as tiredness and depression, among other symptoms. But it doesn’t have to be that way. — Read more →

Messages from the Sporting world

Messages from the Sporting world

Euro 2016 and Wimbledon are just some of the sporting events that finished in dramatic style last weekend with injuries, tough decisions, hard games and interesting competitors. The exciting part of all this was that in every event you were left gripping on to your seat with eager anticipation as to how each would be concluded. What all of these events also have in common is the notion of never giving up. It could be said that this is an essential life lesson for us — Read more →

Peace in the Workplace

Peace in the Workplace

Complex – I think it is fair to say that this word can sometimes sum up people in a nutshell. When you take a whole office full of different types of people with variances in personality, it can be chaotic and unpredictable, which keeps things interesting at least. However, this should not prevent you from creating a loving, peaceful and fun-filled workplace, where the corporate culture is clearly understood by all and the working life provides excitement, fulfilment and joy to the employees. Sound too — Read more →
