As we have seen already, change is inevitable. It comes along in many guises, and can cause stress and anxiety. So as well as accepting that it is a part of life, you need to establish ways to cope with change and the effects it has on you. One way of doing this is through regular exercise.

Most people are aware of the many physical benefits of exercise, but don’t realise that it is great at helping with mental health. Exercise is an effective stress reliever that can help you deal with changes that are affecting your life. Cast your mind back to when you last did some regular exercise – do you remember that good feeling you had?Continue reading

Are you someone who sticks to a routine most days? Or do you just wing it, and see how the day pans out? If you do have one, how do you deal with disruptions to your routine?

I know when I am working I have some of the same tasks every day, as well as others that change. I don’t always stick to a routine, I may mix up the order of my work, but I know when I need to achieve a lot then it is best if I schedule a routine the day before.

You may have noticed it’s been a little while since I last posted. I’ve been looking at how I provide information, and how I can improve it, be of better service to you. So I have been spending some time planning, and of course this has taken up my time.


In the near future, I am going to focus on a subject for a short while at a time. That way it will be more focused for me, and hopefully you too. At present I’m thinking about 2 weeks on a subject, but I’ll see how it goes.


So please be patient with me. With that in mind, here’s a little post about patience, just to make sure you are getting some benefit whilst I sort out my new workflow.


Most of us want to be more patient. In fact, a lot of us need to be more patient. It seems a dying art to me – maybe I just notice it more, but every time I am out shopping I see people being impatient in queues, or drivers getting angry at others for not driving in the same manner.Continue reading
