WHEN THE HORSE IS DEAD, IT’S TIME TO GET OFF!

WHEN THE HORSE IS DEAD, IT’S TIME TO GET OFF! When the horse is dead, it’s time to get off may seem like advice taken straight out of the Stating The Bleeding Obvious Handbook, but you’d be surprised how often I find myself encouraging mentees to do exactly this. Some…

The Art of Self-Care

The Art of Self-Care The art of self-care is a simple yet profound concept. It involves no-one else and is best practiced held-lightly and with grace. It teaches self-love, inclusion and gentleness. Its intention: to bring together the disparate aspects of our psyche and physical awareness. It soothes and it…

Perfectionism

Perfectionism Where did we learn the message that we needed to aspire to perfectionism? We could blame the media but every element of our personal learning and life experience gears towards the ideal that perfectionism equals success. If we think about our upbringing we are taught from an early age…

Roll with life’s punches

Roll with life’s punches Life has an uncanny and infuriating habit of sucker punching us when we’re already down. How often have you ever looked skywards and pleaded “…could I please just catch a break?!” A case in point. My brother, Philip, was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin Lymphoma last…

Moving Forward

Moving Forward I have spent the best part of the last two years trying to ‘move forward’. And I am laughing to myself as I write…trying to move forward – a contradiction in itself. But this is what I was doing, albeit with awareness. I knew I didn’t have it…

Do you need a social Media Cleanse?

Social Media Cleanse By Rosie Campbell I think it’s really important to surround ourselves with the right people. During the latter years of my eating disorder, I lived alone. I had a job that paid well and I valued my independence, but living alone meant that some of my obscure…

Letting Go

Letting Go It is when we are most frustrated and most incapacitated that change happens. No more can we accept the status quo of limited action based on out-dated values and drivers of esteem. The frustration arises due to the subconscious knowing ‘there is more’, a different way to be…

DO YOU HAVE THE ENTREPRENEUR’S CHROMOSOME?

DO YOU HAVE THE ENTREPRENEUR’S CHROMOSOME? by Karan Dennis I had an interesting encounter recently, with a lady I will call Frieda. Frieda is a young, single mother, who started her own business towards the end of last year. Frieda is immensely talented doing her thing, but was beginning to…

Food Issues?

Hello, I’m Rosie, and I’m going to be doing a few posts here and on Those London chicks fitness adviser  Sean Lerwill’s site. I will probably talk about all sorts of things, as my brain can be very random and go off on tangents, but the main purpose behind my…

ARE YOU (OVER-)THINKING IT OVER?

If you try to comprehend air before breathing it in, you will die ~ said a wise person (not me) once. As soon as I read this quote, it gave me pause. You see, I have been known to be a little over-analytical. That sound you can hear now, is…

Is your happiness in your hands?

As an actress I spend most of my time surrounded by highly creative people and over that time I have come to realise that 99% of people in the entertainment industry suffer from mental illness, particularly depression. The sad truth is that almost a good 50% of all these people…

Empower yourself- know your medication

Empower yourself. Know your medication It is important for me with a diagnosis of bipolar to raise awareness about the severity of side effects of medication. We are all too ignorant (unintentionally of course) and uneducated about the little pills we are asked to swallow to treat our symptoms for…

LIVE TOO DEFENSIVELY & YOU WON’T LIVE AT ALL

A man raised a baby swan in a glass jar, but as the bird grew it became stuck in the jar. The man was caught now, for the only way to free the thing was to break the jar, killing the swan ~ Zen proverb We have probably all experienced,…

How to be successful

To Be, Or Not To Be? That Is The Question: When you think differently, you do differently. You can decide to be or not to be a positive person. What I will share with you will change the course of your life. It’s not magic, it’s as simple as choosing…

We all need purpose

What can I say? We all need a purpose in life. We often forget that those with mental health problems, particularly in the case of depression, lose that purpose and question their place in life. I did. I had it all, seemingly. I had a beautiful flat, senior management job,…

YOU CAN BE ANYONE, WHY NOT BE SOMEONE?

Close your eyes and visualise who you want to be, because the first step for getting what you want is to know what you want. Without knowing which direction you want to travel in, no wind is favourable; you must first chart your course, before you can set your sail….
