5 Ways to get Peace of Mind Right Now

Before we talk about how to gain peace of mind, perhaps we should look at what peace of mind is. Although we all have a slightly different definition there is a universal form of peace of mind that we can all resonate with. Peace of mind is a calmness where we are not currently affected by what is going on around us. We are in control of our thoughts and emotions so they do not affect us. We have this central line of ‘normal’ that represents our normal state of being. It’s a balance between our likes and dislikes. This state of mind is the grounding, […]

3 Things You Need to Know before Starting Meditation

In my late 20s and having heard about meditation from a TV programme, I thought it would be cool – the whole essence of becoming a calmer person had massive appeal to me. I made myself comfortable, settled down for my planned 30 minutes and told myself I wasn’t going to move, not even to scratch if I had an itch.  Well, three minutes in, I decided it was a load of rubbish.  There was no hope – my mind was racing more than ever before. I gave up! In my mind I was clearly someone who had irrepressibly strong thoughts, was too intelligent, a supreme multi-tasker… or just not designed to ‘sit […]

3 Ways Your Attachments are Holding You Back

“Let it go, let it go…” and so the song continues. I must be one of the only people in the Western world to not have seen that film! I have managed to avoid it so far – the song on the other hand is a different story, I’ve heard it plenty. What is attachment and why does it hold us back? I’m not talking about the kind of attachment to objects, places or people. Although those things can hold you back too, I am talking about the more subtle attachments, the ones we don’t realise we have. So here goes. 1. Attachment to self. This is […]

3 Ways to Find some happiness

3 Ways to Find Happiness RIGHT NOW!!

How is that search for happiness going? If you are anything like me you might describe it as ongoing; it is a constant search for something that is going to make us feel better. We spend so much time grabbing onto something we want next, the ever present desires that we think will lift our spirits, even if just temporarily. When I turned 40 everything in my life changed overnight. I was suddenly single, fed up and at an all-time low. Just getting through each day had become a huge challenge. I was glad to get back into bed so I could relax. But even that […]

Cannot Stop Thinking

Are you addicted to thinking? Can’t stop Thinking?

Help, I can’t stop thinking! Whenever anybody mentions addictions we immediately jump to thinking they mean something like alcohol, drug or sex addiction. Although these are very real and arguably more destructive than many of the more subtle addictions, we shouldn’t ignore the subtle addictions and how much they can hold us back. Did you ever consider these addictions? Addicted to thinking, wanting more, to desires, spiritual enlightenment, religion, our own beliefs, our own opinions. These are very serious addictions and can be as debilitating as alcohol or drug addiction. Let’s take addiction to thinking – when you simply cannot shut your mind down in any way, you […]

Cannot Sleep! You are Probably Making this One Mistake

When we cannot sleep, stay asleep or struggle to fall asleep it is quite often because we are trying too hard. When I started the self-improvement growth phase of my life a few years ago I didn’t put much importance on my sleep. I thought ‘burning the candle at both ends’ wouldn’t affect me. Granted, burning the candle both ends for me means watching self-development videos and reading personal development books! I was wrong. Sleep is one of the most important aspects of health, growth-development and our well-being. Without sleep, the body cannot repair itself and the mind eventually cannot function. Even the Dalai Lama admits ‘sleep is […]
