No matter how nice you are, someone will always be nasty, criticise and find fault. Be yourself and take no notice, do not let them control your life.
When we think about health and our thoughts, it is difficult to comprehend that they are connected. The truth is, our thoughts affect our health. When we feel under emotional and mental pressure, we become stressed, and this is very bad for our health. Our energy is low, and we get headaches, aches and pains, tense muscles, rapid heartbeat, frequently become ill, get depression and are unable to sleep.
Communication is the key. When we are under lots of pressure, we need to get help and support. A problem shared is a problem halved is a useful idiomatic expression.
Eating healthy meals gives our body what it needs, and some foods claim to have stress-busting qualities. A diet of fruit and vegetables, fish, lean meat, beans, lentils, nuts and seeds and not to skip meals will help. Reducing our caffeine, nicotine and alcohol intake will reduce stress as caffeine and nicotine are stimulants and alcohol is a depressant when taken in large quantities.
Exercise is a great way to keep our mind healthy. Exercise releases natural chemicals in the brain called endorphins which help us to sleep better and relieve tension. We should play sports we enjoy or get out for a walk in nature.
Positive thinking is great for our health and wellbeing. When we remove the negative self-talk and approach problems more positively and productively, we will get more achieved because we cope better. So, think of the good things that have happened during the day, not the bad. We should not blame ourselves when things go wrong, work on a solution and not think the worst. We should not be too hard on ourselves; everyone makes mistakes. Above all, laugh with friends and family as it is a great way to lift the mood.
I have not put up a personal development post for a while so, here it is.
Something I find interesting that comes up in human relationships is accusations. A person will regularly accuse their partner, friend or relative of a particular type of behaviour such as lying, cheating, judging, etc. This behaviour not only affects relationships but it demeans the person at the receiving end.
In my experience, I have noticed that the person who is always accusing another is guilty of the act themselves. I suppose this type of behaviour is in their mind because they are guilty of committing it and they project it onto others. Why else would they think about it constantly? It perhaps makes them feel better about themselves, they are insecure or overthinking?
I feel the best way to deal with this is not to react. They can deal with it on their own. We can say we have not done it until we are blue in the face but this will probably not work because they will not listen. Another way is to have a good talk about what is going on in the relationship and ask them why they feel we are guilty of a particular behaviour. We need to ask ourselves if we are in the right relationship. They need to be able to trust the people they are with, or the relationship will be destructive over time. They need to have proof before they can accuse. For a relationship to function and survive, there needs to be dignity.
We all need a little hope for situations that make us nervous. Whether it is a speech, an exam or a competition, having an optimistic view of how things will work out gives us feelings of trust, confidence and that success is possible.
A little hope helps us survive difficulties. Without hope, people would not survive wars, natural disasters and family problems. Having the correct mindset helps us to overcome difficult situations.
A little hope prevents procrastination. If we expect things are going to work out, we will make an effort to find solutions and take action. We will work to our full potential because we feel things will turn out for the best.
Everyone needs a little hope.
Personal development improves the way we look at life. It helps us cope with problems, accept our fate, find solutions and improves our self-esteem. We become better people when we work on ourselves.

I created this soft green look with The One Express Eye Palette Naturelle and used the green shades 5 and 6. I applied the lighter green on my eyelid and then applied the darker shade on the crease of my eyelid, then blended the colours. I followed with white eyeliner and The ONE Eyes Wide Open Mascara.
The perfect summer accessories look great on the beach or at home, whenever there is the chance to catch those rays.
Sunglasses are essential to protect the eyes from UV rays while on the beach or relaxing in the garden. They can be chic, classic, eye-catching, 100% UV protection, stylish, glam, sophisticated and luxurious, something to suit all styles and tastes.
A beach bag needs to hold all essentials such as; flip-flops, towels, water bottles and sun cream. It has to look good as well as provide for a day at the beach. Being super spacious, having plenty of pockets and an inner compartment is a bonus. It has to be chic, trendy, sophisticated and have the perfect colourful summer look.
A sun hat has to provide all the shade needed to protect from the UV rays of the sun. It can be sophisticated, chic or sporty.
Beachwear needs to be colourful, vibrant, fun and fashionable, to perfectly match each sunny day.
After posting well over 100 posts on my blog, I look back over the past two years and think to myself how far I have come, from building my confidence through learning about personal development to building my beauty business. I did think the other day, will I delete some of my old posts? The answer is, no! My blog is part of my journey.
When I started my blog, I knew nothing about how to drive traffic, and get the right readers. However, slowly but surely I am discovering how to share my thoughts with the world and build my business.
I am learning something new each day and still working on personal development, I think everyone needs to keep improving their skills and relationships. How is my new business going? The answer is, fantastic! I love the products and believe things happen in life for a reason, that is, to give us something better.
So, my new journey is to share this fantastic business with everyone, keep writing my books and do a bit of teaching here and there. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
