I could be wrong (it’s been known) but I’m hoping to cover a complicated subject like depression using the KISS principle (Keep It Simple Stupid). This will be an absolute basic guide on the cause of depression, and also some of the cures which people have had success with. Obviously this will be brief, but I’m hoping this can be a good starting point for both people who feel they may be suffering with depression, and also people who may be living with, or helping somebody el
The phrase below pretty much sums up this whole blog/article, its not positive or negative, simply a rant that i had to get off my chest! “Talking about our problems is our greatest addiction. Break the habit. Talk about your joys.” — Rita Schiano This blog/article, you will either love it and understand where i am coming from, or you will hate it and wish id STFU and crawl back up my own ass! BUT, I’m willing to bet, if you come from a background where you’ve suffered, or cu
Ever heard the story of the naturally talented athlete that everybody thought would be the next number 1 – but then never quite made it and they seemed to disappear from the sport as quickly as they appeared? The athletic and sports world is full of these tales, names that became superstars overnight, only to fade as soon as the pressure began to build!

This blog actually came about due to a conversation I was having with my better half last weekend (that’s the wife by the way). We were discussing the actions of a certain person whose name shall remain disclosed, and the fact that his actions were nothing more than spiteful, completely unnecessary,
Notice how I didn’t start with the same old cliché of New year – new you! As 2016 quickly comes to a close, it’s around this time that people start to focus on new challenges that they wish to take on, old bad habits they may wish to finally rid themselves of, and, generally make life improving changes all starting on January 1st 2017.

The holy grail of weight loss – Simply take in less fuel than the body burns each day and you will easily lose weight! Its simple maths! On an absolute basic level the above statement is 100% true. So all we have to do is eat less everyday and get more active everyday – easy yer? Yep, we can do that no problem! So we cut down on our food, we try to get more active, maybe even join a gym or start some kind of regular exercise programme and just wait for that fat to melt away.
Challenge – Something that needs great mental or physical effort in order to be done successfully and therefore tests a person’s ability. So, this weekend my 2 adorable kids (I use that term loosely!) have their Mixed Martial Arts grading’s, and, after talking to my 6-year-old girl whilst on our walk to school, and her declaring that she sees her grading as a challenge, it reminded me of a very simple but true saying.
