Not that long ago, a scientific study was widely reported by a variety of popular news media outlets. It showed that fewer than 1% of obese people manage to attain a normal weight. It also showed that most people who lose weight—even a modest amount, like 5% of their total mass—gain it right back. We […]

I’m rewatching Game of Thrones – its just so epic, and I watch it from a writer’s perspective too. How they structure the individual storylines, all the cliffhangers and then start weaving them all together. A fabulous tapestry that has horrified, shocked, and entertained me. I’ve reached the part where Jon Snow is brought back […]

A couple of days ago I read a Facebook meme that talked about how words can be so powerful they can do irreparable damage. The meme repeated an old nursery rhyme ‘Stick and stones my break my bones, but names will never hurt me’ and disagreed with it. I agree with the meme, bruises fade, […]

How we think creates the life we live and positive attitudes can change lives. Just as we can get into a downward spiral of stress, tiredness, worry leading to depression, leading to ill health and poor decision making, which leads to worsened circumstances, so we can just as easily develop a upward spiral of self […]

Last weekend I was at a Meditation Retreat hosted by Dr. Prashant Kakoday and Brahma Kumaris. It was an excellent, mind opening event. I find that we learn new information, get blown away by the new perspective we’ve been given, absorb what we can of it, assimilate it into our lives, and then we get on with the […]

When people ask what I do, and I say Clinical Hypnotherapy, I inevitably get the ‘Oh, you help people stop smoking?’ thing.   In all honesty, I don’t. Not because there’s no value in doing that for people, there is of course and I have many great colleagues who do this work better than I […]

When you think about how old you are, if you’re like me, you normally just think about the number of years you’ve been alive and maybe what you see in the mirror and then maybe, like me, you judge yourself against what society, the media and Hollywood say someone that age should look like, behave, […]

Whatever you may feel about the phenomenon of past lives, I don’t think you can dismiss it outright. No-one can because we just don’t know, not absolutely. We cannot state definitely whether or not it can happen, whether or not it does happen. Have we lived before? All of us? Multiple times? And if we […]

Life isn’t necessarily supposed to be easy. Nor, I suspect is it designed to give us everything we think want. However, I do think we could have a lot more fun on this earth if we made things a little easier on ourselves. And we could live bigger, happier, more fulfilling lives by asking big […]

Did you know that more than 80% of people regain the weight they fought so hard to lose within two years? Are you still running around in circles about weight loss, food and exercise? Lose some, put it back on. Lose some and put even more back on. On, off, on, off. Over and over […]
