The number of things screaming for my attention seems to grow by the week and I wouldn’t mind betting that many people reading this will be experiencing the same thing.

Even so, it can still feel pretty self-centred to be thinking about self-care and our own mental wellness when there are so many “more important” things demanding our attention. But is…

Have you ever wondered if you’re an empath? You know, those folks who absorb the emotions of those around us like a sponge. Those who are routinely accused of being too emotional or over-sensitive?

Some of the Pros: Heart of Gold, Intuition on Fire… So imagine this. You walk into a room but instead of just seeing people’s faces, you feel the emotional undercurrent. You feel vibes.

The Covid-19 pandemic has changed how we work. And some will feel anxiety over leaving the comfort of working from home to return to the office.

I suspect you’d like to make decisions you won’t regret. Right? Especially since we make 35,000 decisions each day, according to various estimates, and most are unconscious. Most are trivial, but some are consequential; what to study, which career path to take, who to date or marry. The fact is, the quality of our decisions determines the quality of our lives.
