Well if the dreaded virus has taken you over here are some good tips to care for yourself and speed recovery:

Rest – very important, be a couch potato and let energy direct to killing infection

Drink – clear decaffeinated drinks and vegetable soups

Teas – make those ginger, lemon and honey to soothe a rough throat

Humidify – bedroom especially. There are small desk top machines or again, vaporise oil

ASSUMPTIONS are a dangerous thing……

Jul 20, 2013   //   by Anne Russell   //   Blog, Life Coaching, Tip of the Week  //  No Comments

…they are often based on incorrect thinking, or flawed, partial knowledge.

Before you assume your next decision about a situation or worse still, a person and their behaviour, recollect if you are actually assuming the facts.

Even better, have a week catching yourself and “assuming” – then don’t! Watch the difference that makes.

The benefits of commitment? (to anything)

Jun 6, 2013   //   by Anne Russell   //   Blog, Tip of the Week  //  No Comments

“The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence – regardless of their chosen field of endeavour.”

This quote from Vince Lombardi tells us to in another way to focus on doing our best, at whatever we are choosing to be interested in, large or small – it might be changing the food you eat, or the number of times you smile and relax, the hobby you are involved with; or the effort you put in at work, a major new challenge – or the effort you put into working out how you look after yourself or your Staff?

The benefits are immense, the quality of life improves, constantly.

Vit D – Sun or Supplement?

May 27, 2013   //   by Anne Russell   //   Blog, Tip of the Week  //  No Comments

Be aware that unless you are seeing enough daily sunshine between March and September – and who does in the UK? you are likely to be low in levels of Vit D.

Vit D shortage can be happening without you knowing, and low levels are indicated in many conditions, including cancer (Anticancer Research publication). Supplementation is easy. Please speak with your doctor or Nutritional Therapist.

Negotiation – do you know what is needed?

May 13, 2013   //   by Anne Russell   //   Blog, Life Coaching, Tip of the Week  //  No Comments

Do you understand the basic needs of NEGOTIATION?

A daily conversation of negotiation takes place for all of us – from a simple unaware state (eg, what time do you want dinner?) to a formal meeting for the known purpose (eg changing the timetable for shift workers, or settling a chronic dispute.)

To consciously negotiate we need at least two people – though some may argue we can negotiate with ourselves!

Those involved must wish to reach a settlement, and choose to be honest and open about their requirements.

Those involved must also be willing and able to satisfy the needs of the other, not need to be following another’s dictate.

There will be interests in common and interests in conflict, and there must be appreciation of this before an approach is made.

And importantly, those involved  must be ready to compromise.

If there is total agreement about the targets or problems involved, and no actual conflict, then this will lead to a harmonious conversation, and is not negotiation! You may be attempting in fact to have the other totally agree with you, without listening to their needs and reasons why. It is because there are conflicting interests that the need for negotiation arises. And the acceptance that compromise will be required.




Feeling the cold?

Jan 21, 2013   //   by Anne Russell   //   Nutrition, Tip of the Week  //  No Comments

Yes, we do want to eat more during cold weather – keeping warm takes more energy. To make good choices that keep you feeling full for longer, this is a time to choose the foods containing fats – but please choose the good fats! ie, good meats, nuts, avocado, peanut and nut butters (without added sugar of course!), semi-skimmed milks rather than skimmed.  Pulses and legumes are also very satisfying and nourishing. Call for any more assistance.
