Being your true own authentic self

Very few of us feel comfortable being our authentic self because we don’t see ourselves as remarkable. We don’t realize that our authenticity is the one thing (more than anything) that makes us unique. As Shakespeare said in his play Hamlet paraphrasing: "Be true to thou self otherwise thou cannot trust another man”. There [...]

Facing your own self shadow – Part 2

My first interaction of the shadow self many years ago when I opened my Pilates studio in St.Helens. I was visited by a fellow Pilates teacher who wanted to open a studio and was told to stay my side of the bridge. As you all know I am from Merseyside. I now understand that the [...]

‘The way you do anything, is the way you do everything’

Why does the saying ring true with everything from our personal to work life: "The way you do anything, is the way you do everything".

Are you hungry, yo-yo dieting and tired all the time?

Most of us are overweight, yet are nutritionally deficient. Thanks to processed and junk food manufacturers and the media, most people don't understand that they are gaining weight because they are eating incorrectly and usually too much or too little.

What diets and swollen bellies are telling you

Have you ever wondered how many diets there are? There are literally thousands- everything from green tea, banana diet, to keto, cabbage soup, paleo, slimfast, herbal life and lactose vegetarian.
