I wanted to save this post for a Friday, instead of my usual posting day of Wednesday, because I figured this information might be more useful before a weekend considering the lives most of my readers will lead.

So you’ve had a bit of a long night. The drink has been steadily flowing, you’ve had a lot of fun and you’re heading home after a great night out. You suddenly remember that you have an event to go to tomorrow and, feeling your inebriation slip into hangover, ¬†you realise you can’t afford to be feeling rough. Whether you need to look presentable or just can’t afford to look like you’ve recently been dragged through the set of The Walking Dead, this guide will help you take some pre-emptive actions to reduce the impact of your hangover and keep you looking as fresh as possible for the next day.

I included this video as it is one of my favourite examples of creative thinking. Somewhere, someone decided to ignore the data and figures, choosing to create something with heart that has lasted for decades… 

I’m a firm believer in creativity and the importance it plays in society. It has helped us connect with people across oceans, create great works of art, take steps closer towards human equality (something we are still incredibly far away from) and help great individuals make a larger impact on the world. However, it is not always an accepted or highly valued skill, one that is often swept under the rug during the scrutiny of people’s achievements to help quantify their success. Today, I wanted to discuss what it means to me as well as some of the everyday challenges of creativity. View Post

Having jumped at the first job offer to be thrown my way, I found myself in a sales role based in Canary Wharf, surrounded by some of the biggest financial corporations and wealthiest people in London. Due to my surroundings, I soon found myself setting goals based on my salary, the amount of money I had and the material possessions I owned that would show off financial status. Every decision, both professional and personal, was based around making myself more affluent to satisfy this “ideal lifestyle” I had pictured in my mind’s eye.

3 years later I found myself consumed by misery, specifically when it came to money, desperate to achieve more but disappointed in what I thought to be my own perceived lack of ambition. It was at this point that I started talking to someone about how I felt, what was driving my unhappiness and what I could do to improve my day-to-day mental attitude. Looking back, it was pretty clear that my fixation on money was dragging me down… View Post

Build Confidence 1

Confidence is something that not all of us are graced with from birth and many who aren’t struggle to find it throughout their life.
