Follow Your Heart

If it doesn't feel right walk away.. Chances are it is NOT right.

You see your HEART is much wiser than your brain. Most people when faced with a difficult decision they go to their brain. Most people belive their intelligence comes from their brain.

But that is not the case.

You see, your HEART is much wiser than your brain.

Where am I now

Before imagining where you would like to be, it’s helpful to take stock of what you love or like about your life now. Work out what you would like to change, and what you don’t like.

Check your reality

With 24 hour live news streams, it is easy to get caught up in a negative world view. We need to be awake and aware in order to seek out balanced opinions. Editing our exposure to media frees us to think for ourselves.

Getting into Nature

Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.

Mantra Meditate

Imagine this ' you’ve heard that meditation can benefit your health and wellbeing, so you’ve decided to give it a try.

  • But you’re not sure where to begin …
  • How do you “quiet the mind?”

    Mantra Meditation is a good place to start
    Did you know?! It is human nature for the mind to wander.
  • Do not try and stop your thoughts or "empty your mind." You can't.

  • The Brain!

    Our brain works like an old-fashioned analogue processor that is constantly looking for patterns, similarities, differences, and relationships between them. It is constantly trying to create a picture from the information it has.

    Our amazing brain has 400 miles of capillaries and 86 billion microscopic neurons which are in constant communication.

    11 million bits of sensory data per second goes to our brain to be processed and sorted
    Research has confirmed that our heart does much more than just pump blood
    Nature, Nurture and the power of love
    Our own perception and observation thoughts, feelings and emotions directs the mind-body connection

    Creative or Logic

    Each neuron in the brain is like a tiny tree. They connect to other neurons, and where they touch one another they make between 4000 to 9000 connections. That is a lot of communication. It is almost too much to comprehend. These neural connections help us to generate our experience and perceptions in each moment. They help us to think , create understand, use reasoning, manage our emotions, memories, manage our learning potential. On a physical level, they are fundamentally tiny connections between different neurons that fire together wire together. It was first used by the neuropsychologist Donald Hebb known for his fabulous work understanding the associative field of learning

  • Our left brain is the logic
  • Our right brain is the creative

  • Central Nerves System (CNS)

    The central nerves system is made up of our brain and spinal cord, it is called the central system because it receives all of the information and corodinates what all parts of our body does. In addition, we have the Peripheral Nervous System (PNS), which connects our limbs and organs back into the CNS. The autonomic nervous system (ANS) is controlled by the Medulla Oblongata and is responsible for breathing, increasing our heart rate, sweating, sneezing, goose bumps, our food being digested, blood flow, and managing hormone levels.
    Important, then?!

    When JFK decided to go to the moon, he didn't say maybe we will go to the moon. He said we are going to the moon.
    When you set a goal, be that clear, there is no room for 'maybe', fix your destination in mind

    You Can Change Your Life

    Often when we meet others we only see them for who they are now. We do not know their life experiences, the journey they have been on or what they have overcome. Like you I wasn't always the person you see today.

    Believe beyond what you can see

    Recovery Toolbox. gratitude


    The practice of thankfulness is very simple – it requires minimal effort, is easy to build into your day and soon becomes a good habit.

    Being grateful for what we have is a powerful way to open ourselves up to self-growth and inner happiness. It’s easy to underestimate, yet so effective and simple to do.
