Sausages have been a staple in the British diet for centuries-upon-centuries. According to Love Pork, it is believed that sausages were first brought to Britain by the Romans some time before 400 AD.
Yes it's great to have goals, aspirations, aims, to want be the best version of ourselves and even to keep improving but we have to cut ourselves some slack too. There has to be an off switch, moments where the 'conscience police' are off duty.
I can totally understand people who do not bother to do anything extra in their life to help others. Being an activist and formulating new ideas that will create a better and equal society can be pretty draining.
So it turns out we're never too old for a bit of sex, drugs and rock n roll, and furthermore it can actually do us the world of good. That's according to Professor Wlodzislaw Duch, who heads up the Neurocognitive Laboratory in the Center of Modern Interdisciplinary Technologies, and the Department of Informatics (both at Nicolaus Copernicus University).
The Leadership Multiverse I spend a lot of my time in the UK working with leaders drawn from across the private, public and not-for-profit sectors an...
I began to recognise that in order for me to move through this stroke, I needed to let go the person I knew before it, and embrace whoever may follow. That doesn't mean there was necessarily to be drastic difference, but that I must be very wary of spending my recovery chasing someone who may not completely exist anymore.
We have heard about the importance of stress management for a little more than two decades, and long-term studies of stress in the population have seen stress steadily rise during that time, as Carnegie Mellon University's long term study , which covered more than three decades, proved.
A day after my 20th birthday I 'ghosted' my best friend Gemma*. Feeling particularly hungover after a night clubbing we had our very first fight, where eight years of toxic resentment surfaced. I then deleted her off all social media sites, blocked her number and never spoke to her again. I never told her the real reason why either.
Some days you'll feel like you're back on track and then it will come out of nowhere again like a black cloud, but these days will get fewer and you will have more good days than bad and you'll know that you have the ability to feel happiness again.
The mental health status quo has been accepted for too long, but this inaction is failing the next generation and will continue to do so. Only by acknowledging and prioritising the critical role of research can we see the progress in mental healthcare that our young people so desperately need.
I realise how fragile life is, how easily I could have left loved ones, so I make sure to enjoy quality time and having fun with family and friends, even if that means working late once everyone's in bed.
So why does this matter? It is not my intention to go in to depth on this but numerous studies have shown that sleep deprivation can have an immediate adverse effect on our health, alertness and productivity. This can be the case after even one night of poor sleep but is compounded if our poor sleep continues for any period of time.
It makes me less stressed. It's one of the few pieces of wearable technology that I've tried in my career that actively, and successfully helps me get through a bad day... The Apple Watch's Breath app isn't going to cure depression, nor is it claiming to solve every social problem you have. What it does do though is give you a place to start.
When we remain locked into these kinds of thoughts, invariably we will be overwhelmed with "negative" emotions, such as sadness, grief, jealousy, frustration or anger. What you're thinking about will always lead to what you're feeling. So if you don't like how you feel, you must change your thoughts.
Humans like quick fix, something that will rid us of undesirable elements without much effort. You can hardly blame anyone for buying into the idea of losing weight for the price of a £90 fitness tracker or quit smoking for a £30 e-cigarette. Sorry to break it you, but the problem isn't the technology but lack of motivation and willpower. If you want to see results or improve your lifestyle, no gadget alone is going to do that for you.
I've missed various friend's birthdays and hen nights because I've had a huge event, which I just couldn't miss. Catching up with friends now means civilized meals during the week, because partying at the weekend outside of my own events is just not an option for me anymore.
