Hygge.

When we do hygge we feel that all is well.  We feel safe and calm.  There is a sense of comfort, kindness, harmony and belonging.  Hygge is about a quality of togetherness or a quality of time.  It is life-quality.  This means we are activating the ‘Connected/Contented’ network.  It is part ‘reward’ for our work but it is also a reprieve from work and a way to switch off from being productive, from doing, from achieving. Hygge is a different way of being.

Naïve Realism.

Do you suffer from naïve realism? Do you tend to believe that the way you see things is the truth, that the way you see things is not a reflection of who you are but how it is?

Why mindfulness really matters.

Plenty of things can cause us distress, anxiety and depression. We have an epidemic of unhappy people walking around with little to no idea of how to break free from their "mind prisons." But it doesn't have to be that way.

Change your future trajectory.

Imagine that a new drug comes onto the market.  It is very addictive, and when scientists research it they find that it causes ‘a misperception of risk, anxiety, lower mood levels, learned helplessness, contempt and hostility towards others and desensitisation’.  Would you seek this drug out?  Would you avoid it?  Should it be legal?  Should it be subsidised?  The drug is the news.
