As a therapist that deals with celebrities I'm fully aware of the added pressure that they encounter as part of their fame, whether impromptu marriages to all night orgies; fame isn't a reason to act beyond the normalities of everyday life, but a fantastic opportunity to better it.

Feeling guilty or ashamed about being jealous will lead into a downward spiral. Instead recognise that jealousy is just a passing feeling, it is not who you are. Many people feel jealous, including the person you are jealous about!

I specialise in nutrition, fitness and wellbeing and my no-nonsense approach to therapy means my concepts behind change can sometimes be controversial. I-practise-what-I-preach and I'm a strong advocate for those who follow their own advice, but I'm frustrated... especially when it comes to hypnotherapy and weight loss.

Why Do We Lay Awake at Night Dreaming of a Better Life?

Benjamin Bonetti | Posted 10.10.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Benjamin Bonetti

The emotions of want are heavily related to the emotions of connection, the more we are able to connect with others the less likely we are going to stand out and be alone - sadly this fake reality is something most will live up to, often failing to live life by their own consciously aware path, but more-so to comply with another's ideal of how life should be designed and lived.

Chloe Brotheridge

The roots of the word shame are thought to come from an older word, meaning 'to cover'. Which makes sense. It can feel a lot like wanting the earth to swallow us up, or that desperate desire to run away and hide under a rock when shame hits. But what exactly is 'shame'?

When we feel unimportant and apologize for taking up space in the world, everyone else becomes more important, more worthy and more valuable than us and, of course, that means their needs instantly take priority.

How to Heal...

The more you 'try' in the world of mind the more you cement the problem as being real and it's never anywhere near as real as you think it is nor does it remotely matter where the problem came from or what caused it in the first place, you are only ever one thought away from being well again.

How do your beliefs shape your experience of life? Are there areas where challenging those beliefs might help to shift things in a more positive direction for you? The great thing is that beliefs are just thoughts and we really do have the capacity to chose how we think.

Many of us are choosing a greener lifestyle, and that goes for medication too. Holistic therapist Sorrell Robbins explains "The idea of alternative medicine - namely herbs - is to help moderate and balance the individual alongside medical and/or psychiatric care and not to cure conditions that mainstream doctors were unable to".

As an avid viewer of his work and stage shows I have been amused, confused and downright bamboozled by him as a showman for years. Like all great artists the moment you think you have worked him out he smashes out a curveball.

Generally, if you're overweight, there's a reason for it, and it's not just as simple as not eating the cake, otherwise you'd have done it by now, right? People who've been on a diet are 'experts' in their field.

Braingasms and Towel Folding - The ASMR Effect

So is it possible that something so easy to trigger, which feels so great, really has no harmful side effects? Slight headaches, tiredness and nausea are listed as possible reactions but - aside from blissful sleepiness - I've yet to experience any of these. The only slight downside to ASMR is that it's a little addictive.

In the 21st Century we can live such busy lives that it's very easy to lose awareness of the ability we all have to control our emotions, our state of mind and the skill of planning for happiness.

Sstatistics show that 25% of the population of the UK suffer from a sleep disorder of one kind or another, resulting in them feeling tired during the daytime. Astonishingly, that's one quarter of everyone out there. Luckily though, many of these can be cured relatively easily through the right emotional and lifestyle adjustments.
