  2. Saying Thank You

    Saying Thank You
    Saying thank you is something many of us are conditioned to do from a very young age. "Say thank you", I remember saying to my son when he was very young when someone gave him something or did something for him. We condition our children to do it from a very young age. It doesn't matter what role you do...
  3. Thinking & Acting Positively

    Thinking & Acting Positively
    Yesterday we heard Jenny Harries; the UK Deputy Chief Medical Officer suggest that we could be in 'lockdown' for 6-months. I am sure this prospect gave you a very negative feeling.

    Thinking Differently - This is how we get through this
    The last few weeks have changed the way we live our lives, looking around I see people in shock really from denial (it's only a cold) to being afraid where you see people panicking (buying things they don't need). Of course, this is perfectly normal, and there is nothing wrong with you, it's just not very useful. Schools are closing...
