Dodgy Thinking and Allergic Reactions to Life

By |2019-12-23T00:38:17+00:00December 21st, 2019|Blog, Wellbeing|

Food intolerance is widespread and we are increasingly well informed about what we eat. We take great care to ensure we don’t ingest things that are toxic to our bodies.

It is great that human beings can reflect and learn from experience, but that is not the same as destructively dwelling on things. Going over things again and again serves no useful purpose and may well reinforce the sense of failure. It's a habit worth breaking.

Conflict At Work is Costly

Conflict is obviously costly in financial terms, but more important is the cost to morale, working relationships and personal well-being.

If you are involved in a dispute at work (or elsewhere) here are some things you can do to start to resolve it.
