Boundaries – The Importance of Setting Them.

I’ve recently started my counselling training and this is a subject that came up in the session. I won’t go into detail about my classes, but the topic, that we can definitely go into. What are boundaries?Boundaries are limits we set with the people we interact with, these can be friends, family or co-workers. ExamplesContinue reading “Boundaries – The Importance of Setting Them.”

When Stress Becomes Something More – Work / Job Stress

Over the years I’ve noticed that a lot of people I’ve met have some form of mental health issue, the most common appears to be anxiety. Some might say that this is just because our generation is so “over sensitive” or that ever infuriating term “a snowflake”. Everyone, I’m sure, has their theory on whyContinue reading “When Stress Becomes Something More – Work / Job Stress”

Understanding Music and Mental Health – pre-cursor

Okay people, I know there aren’t many of you following this blog but if you have the time I’d like to ask you a question or two. Recently my daughter got into a discussion with a friend over whether or not depressed people should listen to “depressing” music.

The January Plod and it’s endless days

January seems to be a difficult month for so many people, I can’t tell if it’s coincidence or aftermath of Christmas that does it, but it’s definitely an issue and I like to call it the January plod because January feels so very, very long. For those who have struggled financially, the aftermath of ChristmasContinue reading “The January Plod and it’s endless days”

Phone Call Anxiety

I know a lot of people who don’t like making calls, phone call anxiety is the way we describe it, my youngest, who I can hear in the background nattering as we speak, isn’t one of them… but anyway, today’s drawing prompt was rotary phone and I was inspired.

So much for that idea…

1 hour came and went, the living room is done but my daughter has spread her painting stuff across my table so it won’t be finished just yet. Still good to clear the clutter. Clutter is a funny one, some people can manage it, some struggle, some hate it, while others think a room isContinue reading “So much for that idea…”

Starting a Blog Fresh for 2019

So apparently I started this blog to go along side my job, I’m a weight loss coach, which I love, but clearly I never got any further than registering. I signed in today not really knowing what to expect, I couldn’t even remember which account was attached to the email. Upon opening the app IContinue reading “Starting a Blog Fresh for 2019”

The intention of our presence here is not to fulfill expectations. It is to promote questioning and debate. Both of which should be respectful and informed. Learning comes from listening not shouting. Our opinions may not be yours, and that is how it should be.
