Director’s cut

Life is often a blur as we move fast through activities, hardly noticing where we’ve been. Hurry sickness leads to stress, depression or feeling dislocated from life because of all the ‘busyness’. Even moving at speed, make the effort to connect with the world. See...

Choose your sensations

Wherever you are, make choices. Don’t waste happiness on trivial irritations. So, you have to wait in a queue? Why get yourself worked up? What a great opportunity to escape to a desert island (in your head at least). Imagine the waves lapping, the birds singing and...

Count your blessing

At the end of every day, as you go home from work or put your head on the pillow, your thoughts are likely to be full of what you didn’t do or haven’t achieved. Scientists call this the Zeigarnick Effect. It may have evolutionary value, making sure you complete...

Pay it forward

Benjamin Franklin talked about this idea, books have been written about it and the film with this name stars Kevin Spacey, Helen Hunt and Haley Joel Osment. The concept is easy to describe. Help three people. Do something for them that they cannot do for themselves....

Be curious

Curiosity killed the cat? In one story! For the rest of us, it keeps us alive. As an adult with increasing responsibilities, it’s easy to get stale, to slip into routine, to stop seeing the world afresh and start thinking you have seen it all. Don’t limit yourself....

Celebrations

Find reasons to celebrate life on a regular basis. It’s a Tuesday! Your friend was promoted! They met someone new! Be generous and creative in the way that you celebrate your friends’ and family’s good fortune and major life events. You don’t always need to throw a...
