Sometimes we want to help ourselves feel good and get wrapped up in our own world. We dare not to venture outside our own reality and don’t want to interact with others as we think that they…

Continuing on from my last post How to feel good for 12 days at Christmas, I am reminded it’s not just at Christmas time that you can feel overwhelmed. Maybe it’s going on holiday; the planning, the packing, the arrangements, going away and then coming back home to business as usual. It seems even the good things in life can cause stress and anxiety. It could be birthdays, weddings, a new job, or moving house, just about any event where it is expected that you are supposed to be happy…

Overcome fear and panic attacks

Fear and panic

I have experienced fear and panic attacks! Even though I knew they were unreasonable I felt like I couldn’t control them. Do you feel the same?

Who’d have thought I’d have a heart attack? Certainly not me that was for sure, until Monday, 21st March 2016. When I woke up sweating, feeling sick with an upset stomach…
