    How To Deal With A Frightened Child

    Today I had to deal with one of the worst things a parent can see their child go through; fear. Dinky had an ophthalmology appointment today and although this isn’t the first time he has been to have his eyes checked, he was not happy during the whole car journey there. My Dad took us, and normally when he’s around all he can do is talk and blabber on about nothing. But today he was silent, with the odd sigh and whimper. He told us that he was bored, so we kept chatting to him to keep him occupied. Fast forward thirty minutes into the car journey and he lets…

    How To Maintain A Positive Outlook On Life

    Sometimes, without even realizing it, we can become very negative in terms of the way we think and the way we see things. It’s so easy to become cynical about the world when all we seem to see on the news is constant injustice and tragedy, all while we may be dealing with our own pain and heartache. But negativity will prevent you from being able to truly enjoy your own life, because it will just be that dark cloud that is hanging heavy above your head, and you don’t want that do you? All you need to do is make small adjustments in your life, and you can turn…

    Autumn & Winter Fitness: What You Need To Know

    Keeping fit during autumn and winter isn’t fun.   There’s no point denying it, is there? Winter is the season when we’re all meant to be curled up watching movies while it snows outside. It’s the season of blankets, mugs of tea, and quiet nights spent trying to persuade yourself you don’t need to turn the thermostat up another notch. With all of these activities on your mind, few of us have the motivation to keep up a fitness regime.   There’s a good reason for this, too. While humans don’t hibernate, we do have a tendency to want to hide away during autumn and winter. Most people feel more…

    Improving My Health For A Better Life

    Lately I have been struggling with my health, and for once it’s not my mental health. It seems like one thing after another lately. As soon as my mental health started to improve, my physical health seemed to decline and that’s why it’s time for me to make a change once and for all. I’m fed up of always having something to complain about, and I’m also fed up of looking in the mirror and hating what I see. My overall health needs to improve, and soon. I have become lazy with a lot of things, including simple tasks like going to the shops, keeping our home tidy and wanting…

    Detox Tea – Te Divinia – Day Five Review

    I’m already on day five of my review of Te Devinia’s detox tea! This week has gone so quickly! So, let me update you on what’s been going on. In my last article, I mentioned about a flush that you should expect when you’re taking the detox tea, which basically flushes all of the horrible toxins and crap out of your colon. I also mentioned that I hadn’t had one yet, and then once my article was published, guess who had a flush? It doesn’t hurt at all it just kind of happens, and I’ve got to admit I have felt even less bloated since it happened! What about food? I…

    Detox Tea – Te Divinia – Day Three Review

    This week I have been reviewing Te Divinia for a good friend of mine. Even though today is day four, I’m giving you my day three review today. I was meant to do it yesterday but another good friend of mine went into early stages of labour so I had her children for the day so she could try and sort herself out – still no appearance from baby though! Anyway, I’ve been doing the detox tea for three days now. I’m refusing to weigh myself until a week has passed but I’m hoping to have lost a few pounds by then! I definitely feel less bloated, which has been lovely!…
