Arguably one of the most important skills when completing a PhD (or any other degree for that matter) is organisation. There are always a million tasks to complete, and when you throw work, having a social life, and sleeping into the mix it can get overwhelming. Although, there is often no way of being less busy- there are a few […]
** In collaboration** We bet that most of you would think that the life of a business owner would be something that would be desired. A life where you can do what you want, you have your own business, and you have more money than you know what to do with. Sound like that you would of imagined? Well, that’s […]
** In Collaboration** There comes a time in everyone’s life where they have to make a decision about the future. So many of us are happy in our lives, but a lot of us feel like we could do more to improve the way we live and the things we do. This is something that plays a big role in […]
** In Collaboration** As a student, it’s quite easy to stay optimistic about your grades at the beginning of the term. You have an entire year to do well, in any way, and as long as you put your mind do it you can surely do anything. While this is true, it is way too easy to lose that spark […]
**In collaboration**\ Winter is definitely the season where we start to question our health more. We grow more accustomed to life indoors. Comfort food, watching TV and staying warm, which often means that we start to feel the effects of that in ways such as low energy levels, feeling lethargic and a little “blah.” Sound familiar? You are not alone. […]
** In collaboration ** Do you feel bored with your job? Are you sick of getting up at the same time every day, getting on the same bus and sitting in the same office chair? There will be times in everyone’s life when we feel stuck in a rut. It could be your personal life or it could be […]
I have always been a believer in appreciating the small things this wonderful world has to offer, and since everything that happened last year I have started to take time to reflect, a lot and often. Lately one of the things I have reflected on is that I have made some really small changes that have really helped increase my happiness (if only slightly some days). So this is my little list: Showering at night– Having a shower when I get home from work is one of the best stress releases. Not watching the news– I very rarely watch the news now. I was finding it really draining, and since doing research on the media, I was also finding it frustrating. I get the news I need to through my phone, I don’t need to watch it before and/or after work. Dancing while cooking- Instead of watching TV while I cook, I listen to music and dance around. Take Frog for a walk– As Frog’s training is paying off, I am now able to easily take him for a walk, so I do that most days when I get home (unless I work late). My Nespresso machine- I finally purchased a Nespresso machine, and I must say it has changed my mornings. Waking up and getting to have a delicious coffee in my own home is the best way to entice me out of bed.
