Posts from June 2017

As promised last week, this week we’re going to give you 50 ways to improve your energy levels and raise your spirits. These are among the many ideas we give clients and have stood the test of time. Some are quick and simple, others take a little longer, but all have benefits well beyond the issues we’re focusing on today. 
Our advice, as always, is to choose one to start with and practice it until it becomes an automatic part of your life. Then add another. And another. That’s how change happens, one small step at a time.  
So, without further ado, here we go: 
Over recent years the number of people diagnosed with Depression has rocketed, as have those taking antidepressant medication over the long term, particularly children. Earlier this year the World Health Organisation went so far as to label Depression as the leading cause of ill health and disability worldwide. It estimated that Depression now affects 322 million people worldwide, an increase of more than 18% over the decade to 2015. 
To us these were truly shocking figures. And a sign that something is seriously wrong. Not only with the conventional approach to treating Depression – which is failing to help those affected – but in the way we live our lives. 
So what on earth is going on? And, more importantly, what can be done to address it? 
There’s no doubt that the desire to help others is one of our most basic instincts. Done sensitively it’s one of those true “win win” situations. Providing assistance to the person concerned, while being incredibly satisfying for the one offering to help. 
However, as most people have found out from bitter experience, – regardless of whether they were the helper or one being helped – there are some fine lines it’s all too easy to cross. 
With the weather starting to warm up we’ve had the usual spate of calls from clients suffering from leg cramps. While they’re usually associated with the summer months, they can occur at any time of year and for several different reasons. 
However, the good news is that they’re easy to deal with. Even better they’re simple to prevent, with no prizes for guessing the number one cause. And, if you need a clue, it’s one of our pet subjects (!). More about this later.
