Positivity Breeds Positivity, Does It?
As our struggles with everyday life get harder and harder, due to Covid and the aftermath of the first wave, there are increasing numbers of videos and posts on social media, sharing messages of positivity and those being successful, but, are they too much and insensitive to what the majority of people are going through?Whilst having inspirational and positive leaders are very much needed, now more than ever, surely those who put content out on social media should take responsibility for the specific content of their message, know their specific audience and be wary of those who may have underlying health conditions, regardless of this being physical or mental health conditions?Who better to mull this over with, than Mr Positive himself, who actually has "Positivity Breeds Positivity" within his email signature, Sean Molino from Forces Fitness and the Veterans Awards, Wales, England and Scotland.During the show, Sean talks about, The Five Ways to Wellbeing, these are: Connect, Be Active, Take Notice, Keep Learning and Give.

How To Embrace Change
This episode, I talk about change leading to insecurities, the impact it can have on a person, how to recognise whether an individual you know is struggling with or has been impacted by change and what happened to me, after deflecting the problems, failing to face the issues and deal with them. I talk about Resilience and how it can aide you with facing change, though the other tools you want to accompany it in your tool box, are that of Mindset and Mindfulness. These three combined with a greater understanding of how we perceive life, will empower you to begin accepting and embracing change, regardless of how big that change may be. The link you require for the animated video I talk about, namely: NLP Communication Model, you can view on my YouTube channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFTlr1rvVWI57J9UEMa1x0w alog with some other very useful and interesting videos. check them out.

We ALL have Expectations of work, family, friends, love, marriage, life, just like you all have your own individual perceptions/thoughts of them and the power to manage our expectations is held within us. Finding a way to manage your expectations will be SO important over the coming months and you all CAN do it, though bare in mind it can be harder than you think at times. Ask yourself this; how often do you make expectations of those around you, friends, family, work colleagues or even YOURSELF? Take your time and write it down, you might just be surprised, then ask yourself; were they reasonable expectations? How about from THEIR point of view?
