May= Mental Health Awareness Month


Many people may not know this, but May has been Mental Health Awareness month for over six decades now. It is important to pay attention to our mental health. When it comes to physical health we tend to take preventative measures and make changes before disease or health problems escalate, why not do the same for your mental health?

The goal of mental health awareness month is to encourage people to pay attention to their mental health and take action before things escalate. So many wait to ask for help. Why ignore it, when you take charge and make change?

“I Am Safe”

Silver Girl

Social Anxiety And Setting Boundaries

I came home, read my emails and felt a sense of dread as another man has private messaged me from the group.

It’s stressed me out.

It’s hard for me to remain calm in these situations. I have issues with men… I have been traumatized by men.

As I start socializing with a mixed gender group obviously I’m going to have to learn how to deal with males.

I didn’t mind talking to them at the group .. but privately after I have barely spoken to them – isn’t that weird…? I guess I start getting scared. It’s not a conscious thing, somehow I’m triggered.. I can only assume those who trigger me are the ones that aren’t safe for me.. I guess I am learning self protection at 47!!

I have never liked male attention, some women thrive in it. The minute I grew…

What is Coaching?

Coaching is about working with you to help you take action.

The coach helps you move from where you are now to where you want to be far quicker and more effectively than if you were to work alone.

The coach asks you open questions to challenge you to think about your situation from a different perspective and allow you to come up with your solution and actions to move you forward to what you want to achieve.  Coaching is extremely powerful and can generate excitement and drive when you realise that you can solve your own problems and move yourself forwards rather than being stuck. Motivation increases and success is far more likely.

Time for Mental and Physical Spring Cleaning

Charles Benayon

health-wellnessSpring has finally sprung and with many Canadians believing that good emotional health is just as important as good physical health, it’s time to kick off the season with my personal list of key areas of your life to look at.

Healthy Mind, Healthy Body
When I refer to health, I mean mental and physical health as they have a symbiotic relationship. While most of us know that the state of our physical body deeply affects both how we think and feel, i.e. our mental state, few of us can absolutely pinpoint which came first. If you skip exercise and overload your body with processed foods and chemicals, you won’t feel as energized, inspired and alive as you could, and our mood can be affected. With mental health issues affecting 1 in every 5 Canadians, it is imperative that we look at how we treat our physical self to ensure…
