What keeps you going?

inspiration nlp resilience Jun 26, 2022

At a time when the world around us is not doing well what can we do to keep ourselves going?  How do we centre ourselves at a time like this?  It's a question that I ask myself regularly and its a question that I discuss with my clients as many of us are cycling through fight, flight, and freeze responses faster than we can finish a cup of coffee.  I have just come back from a week away with my family in the Scottish Highlands.  Two adult children, daughter-in-law, new born granddaughter, two dogs as well as my husband!  It's not been an easy year so far with some health issues for a couple of family members balanced by the love for our new arrival, Matilda.  It was the first time we have taken a holiday altogether for over 10 years.  What a delightful and wonderful mix of laughter, complete chaos, exploration, eating together, baby sitting,  picnics, scenic walks and the joy of being together.  I have been watching the six seasons...

A Useful Tool for Managing Stress Part 2

In my blog of the 20th February, I spoke about the science behind how to turn everyday stress into optimal stress.  Since then we have had the war break out in Ukraine and our levels of stress are once again at peak levels as we pray for the people of Ukraine and take the action we can personally take to support the war effort.  I have been especially distressed by the photos of the men (and women) of Ukraine leaving their families behind to go to the front line.  As a mother I am anxious for the future safety of my own children.   

I have been reflecting on what Team NLP can do to help.  So today I have a thought challenging tip for you and an idea about how we can support the Ukrainian refugees arriving in the UK. 

Firstly, the tip for you...

Anxiety is best described as the unhelpful thinking patterns you experience when your mind fixates on threat, uncertainty and negativity.  This technique helps by broadening your focus to include a...

Exciting Collaboration to Offer ILM Level 5 Online Coaching and Mentoring

There is no better time to become a coach and mentor.  How do I know? 

The early stages of the pandemic and the ensuing lockdowns were hard on all of us, in different ways. Isolation, joblessness, childcare, and many other challenges severely affected the mental well-being of many people around the world. Yet here we are, a year on. How are we coping? 

The physical health effects of COVID-19 and the countless deaths the pandemic has claimed have been, and continue to be, devastating on a global scale.  Many found it hard to cope with the grief and isolation, and others found it hard to deal with job loss and financial insecurity.  These struggles are affecting our mental health and involve some of the key predictors of burnout, including an unsustainable workload, the absence of a supportive community, and the feeling that you don’t have control over your life and work. 

The world needs more coaches to help and support others to take back...

Walk on with hope in your heart…

Our weekly Team NLP blog where you will find inspiration and actionable advice on how to build healthy habits, resilience, and connections in our unprecedented times.

Happy New Year to you and your families.  I was listening to one of my Christmas presents this morning – a CD by Andrea Bocelli called ‘Believe’.  It’s an inspiring set of tracks just right for this moment in time.  One line struck me in particular and made me feel quite emotional.  It was taken from the track by Rogers and Hammerstein called ‘You will never walk alone’:

‘Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart and you’ll never walk alone’’

It’s a well-known track used so much in sporting events to bring crowds together.  For me today it was a reminder that whatever is going on it is a time for hope and to keep going.  It inspired me and I hope it helps you too in some small way.  My mantra for 2021 is to find hope...
