    Everyone wants to live a better life, but no one tells you about the key things to help you do it. Here are some of the most important things that will help you in personal development and self-help reading. Is it time for you to get off the sidelines and make some changes?

    Stop Taking Things Personally

    The first step to improving your life is learning how not to take things personally. Everyone has good and bad days, but the difference between those who succeed in life and those who do not is their reaction when they face failure or adversity. The person that thrives usually gets back up, dusts themselves off, and tries again, while the other wallows in self-pity and gives up on achieving what they want out of life. 

    Many people allow their emotions to dictate how they think about a situation rather than rationally before reacting emotionally. It would help if you learned from mistakes instead of letting them define you as a person because everyone makes mistakes at some point or another.

    Just remember you cannot change what other people think or do; only how you react. So, stop taking everything personally.

    Build Confidence With Your Body

    Your body reflects your mind, the thoughts you accept and allow yourself to think. When you are confident in who you are, it shows how you present yourself physically, which improves your life exponentially. Confidence is not something that comes overnight but over time as one gets progressively better at their craft or goal that they have set for themselves.

    Practice building confidence by making small changes every day towards achieving bigger goals. Build trust with your body by dressing well. Make sure you are always putting in the effort to look nice for yourself by dressing well and taking care of your personal appearance. If there is anything that you would like to improve, then go ahead and take positive action.  For example you could perfect your smile by getting invisible braces which will positively affect your smile and confidence.  If your skin isn't in tip top condition, you could start  a new regimen and have a monthly professional facial.

    Stop Playing the Victim

    Playing the victim, or acting like everything is someone else's fault, can slowly erode your self-confidence and make you feel like the universe revolves around other people.

    Instead of blaming others for something that has gone wrong in your life, try to think about ways you could have prevented it from happening. Doing this will help keep things in perspective when something terrible happens again later. You'll be able to say, "Okay, so I made a mistake last time that caused me to fail at X thing." You won't just internalize blame without looking into how you contributed to the goal not being reached 

    Take responsibility for what happened by figuring out where your part was in causing whatever went wrong. Taking ownership over small mistakes goes a long way in shaping your future. It is not to say you can't expect others to take responsibility for their actions--but don't be the kind of person who expects everything handed to them on a silver platter with no effort.

    Avoid Stressing Over Things You Cannot Change

    Stress is a natural and unavoidable part of life, but it's also one of the most common causes of unhappiness. If you've ever taken on too many responsibilities at once or gotten caught up in self-pity after being turned down by someone you were hoping to date, then you have experienced stress firsthand. While some people are more resilient than others when dealing with stressful situations, there are specific steps that you can take to minimize your overall exposure to them. By using stress management tools, you will be able to reduce your stress levels or find healthier ways to manage stress.

    One strategy that can help you manage stress levels involves taking frequent breaks from whatever situation may be causing distress. Whether this means switching between tasks throughout the day or simply getting outside for a bit each morning before diving into the day's work, taking time to recharge can play a significant role in warding off stress and staying happy.


    In conclusion, these are just a few ways to improve your life that no one tells you about. These tips will help you feel more fulfilled and content with yourself, which will lead to improvements in other aspects of your life.

    Last of all remember to be kind to yourself, you are the one who has to live with you for the rest of your life!

    Until next time



  2. Many people are switching their beauty products to organic as they are a healthier and more environmentally friendly choice.

    In the UK at present, beauty and wellbeing products can be labelled as organic even if they only contain 1% organic ingredients which is scandalous and misleading.

    However, if you choose organic beauty products that are COSMOS certified you can guarantee the following standards:

    COSMOS Organic

    In the treatment room I use Neal's Yard Remedies organic aromatherapy products for massages, facials, reflexology and pedicures.  These are all COSMOS certified organic products.
