Posts from December 2016

With the madness of the festive season upon us – and having seen some very frazzled clients recently (!) – it seemed like a good time for a dose of commonsense. That’s if we dare use this rather word at all… 
For some reason we’ve never been able to fathom, the festive season seems to bring out the manic in most people. Not to mention the rose tinted spectacles. 
Perhaps it’s down to the combination of late nights and festive get togethers fuelled with industrial quantities of alcohol and food. 
Or those unwritten rules and traditions that seem to plague most families. “We always see Great Aunt Esmeralda on Christmas Eve / have bucks fizz on Christmas morning / go to the pantomime on Boxing Day / fill in the blank.” 
If this seems like a rather strange question, bear with us, it isn’t meant to be. Instead it’s a gentle wake up call, designed to bring you back to the here and now. Confused? Then let us explain. 
One thing we constantly notice with clients – as well as family and friends – is how little time most people spend in the here and now. The present moment. Engaged 100% with what’s happening in their lives RIGHT NOW. 
True, they’re physically present, but their minds are miles away. They’re here in body but not in spirit. 
As we’ve mentioned before our blog posts usually spark some interesting responses from clients – and often these aren’t what we expected. A recent example of this are the couple of posts we did on sugar, highlighting how easily it becomes part of our diet without us ever realising it AND why it’s so addictive. 
Much to our surprise, it was the second point – focussing on its addictive qualities – that has caused most comment. Not to mention some ruffled feathers with comments along the lines of: 
“How could we possibly say that sugar was addictive? That’s not a “proper” addiction. What’s wrong with a sugary treat? It’s nothing like alcohol or drugs. Those are real addictions.”
