Happy versus Happiness – And the difference is..?

Share this

With so much emphasis these days on being a happy, positive, upbeat person have you ever stopped to really consider what that means? Does it make you feel lacking in some way because you’re not almost constantly feeling happy or positive? Do you struggle with life’s ups and downs and see others as ‘happy’ but […]

The science behind positive thinking…and why negative thinking ain’t always that bad!

Share this

Upbeat, cheerful, optimistic, positive, enthusiastic – all the traits we can admire in others and aspire to in ourselves. Perhaps you’re naturally an optimistic person?

Back in 1999, when my son was just 2 years old, we lived in the north west of […]

The Power of good breathing

Share this
