Welcome to the Brand New Wish Tree!
Over the last few months, we’ve been busy bees behind the scenes. Streamlining our services further, broadening our use of technology and embracing teamwork means we are now very proud to be offering you something new and truly special.
Brilliant relationships are rare. But if we are willing to take a risk by showing up authentically and being our true vulnerable selves, we have everything to gain. Healthy, stable relationships are at the core of our well-being. So much so that The Mental Health Foundation has made Relationships the focus for this year’s campaign. But what makes a truly brilliant relationship? And what will you do to nurture healthy relationships in your life?
Resilient people know, on a deep level, that we are not meant to do “it” – life – all by ourselves. Science now tells us that connection is the number one thing that will determine our overall well-being, health and longevity. But what does connection actually mean? And how can we have more of it in our lives?
Thinking of offering your clients the opportunity to develop in a workshop setting? Carefully planned and facilitated workshops have the power to accelerate your clients’ growth by providing immersive, creative and connected learning environments that will take them and your coaching practise, to new heights.
The most compassionate and empathetic people are the people who are well versed in their own darkness. Taking good care of ourselves makes it easier to be with our challenging emotions, and subsequently another’s. In this article you will find out what practising self-compassion is all about and how it can lead you to a greater sense of well-being.
We live in an era of taking the edge off. Never before have human beings been so medicated and addicted and numb. But the truth is that the more we numb the more we loose our ability to feel joy, peace and happiness. And so we numb some more. It seems, we are constantly on the run from our pain. Yet we know that what we resist, persists. As part of Wish Tree’s series of blogs on resilience, this article is about how we can choose to let go of numbing and actually find that light at the end of the tunnel exactly by moving through it.
A perspective can best be described as the lens through which we are viewing a situation, any situation in life. Very often we believe that whatever perspective we are currently in is “the truth” about something. In reality it is only one way of looking at the topic at hand, whatever it might be.
Perspectives can either limit us or empower us. It is our perspectives that will determine how something will affect us. Discover how resilient people move through challenging life situations by staying mindful of their perspectives.
After the initial excitement of entering a brand New Year, it is not uncommon for us to find January a challenging month. The January-blues is a real experience for many. Spending time at the start of our year looking at how we can nurture ourselves to become resilient, empowered and focused, is key to being able to make positive changes for our year ahead.
Ever wondered why New Years resolutions don’t work? Who are you being as you are trying to make changes in your life? How can we create a meaningful and fulfilling year even through life’s ups and down’s? How to have a great New Year isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It is about learning to dance in the rain.
Whatever your year has brought you, spending time reflecting on and releasing 2015, will set you up for a fresh start to your new year.
