“Could you just…?”
“I really need your help”
Or the worst one… “I’m so upset, I don’t know where to turn.”
Yowser! You surely don’t need this! You already have so much to do you could spontaneously combust trying to be in 37 places at once… and you’re already late!
Do you want to make a lasting change?
But sometimes feel you’re going mad?
You want to make that change but somehow day after day… you just don’t manage it?
Disappointingly, each morning you wake up and everything is… exactly the same.
Despite all your determination. All your resolve.
There’s a very good reason that happens.
Possibly the topic with the most nonsense ever written about it.
Countless articles, books, and quotes on happiness – they’re full of it.
What a crime!
Because happiness is a precious commodity.

And then the flames of discontent start to smoulder…Continue reading
Do you want to halve your worries?

Silly question, perhaps. Because there’s probably no one alive who wouldn’t want to worry less.
Sometimes it seems there just aren’t enough hours in the day for all the things we have to worry about.
Because worry is a vicious cycle: the more we worry, the more it sets off a chain reaction of more worry.

Worry often gives a small thing a big shadow. Swedish Proverb
Are you plagued by worries?
Do negative thoughts keep you awake at night?
Do they scuttle around the inside of your head? Burrow into your brain, scratching at your frayed nerves, gnawing at your happiness?
Worrying your already threadbare peace of mind to tatters?
