By Ieva Nalini | Emotional Vitality , Spirituality

You were born in the age of Ignorance – the more you know, the more anxious you become, the more you try, the more energy you lose. Sounds familiar? This is what most of people’s lives looks like.

Engaging With Engagement

By Dr. Keith Beasley | Spirituality

‘Engagement’ is the current name of the game. In Education, for example, students need to be fully engaged, and research staff need to be engaging with the wider community. Excellent. It’s common sense, but useful to highlight such needs and to commit to satisfying them. But . . .

From my observations, engagement is in danger of becoming just the latest in-thing that achieves very little. Why? Largely because it will be treated as the latest flavour of the month, in a short-term programme with a well-meaning intent and appealing words . . . but without really understanding what’s actually required.

Forget the Size – You Are Beautiful!

By Dr. Elisa Song | Spirituality

I was a fat girl. In middle school, I asked my mom if I could go to fat camp. I wanted to lose weight and for once in my young life be a skinny girl, so away I went. I clearly remember that first mortifying day when all of us kids lined up – girls in leotards, boys in swim trunks – to take our “before” photos. We got weighed and measured, our fat pinched, every unwanted inch discerned. Our “calories in” were counted to the milli-bite, and “calories out” were tracked with every step and jump in the exercise of our choice. That set me up for a lifetime of this-or-that new diet fad or fitness routine in my never-ending quest to be thin – to have that perfect body that every girl but me seemed to have. One summer in high school I decided to drink nothing but orange juice for a month. I tried my hand at bulimia in college along with several of my girlfriends, but wasn’t dedicated enough to stick with it. As with most women on this journey, I yo-yo’ed between 3 clothes sizes – my skinny clothes, my fat clothes, and my average clothes.

Mindfulness

By Malcolm Saunders | Spirituality

Do you text while driving? Even though too many people still do, I hope in your heart you can answer no. I think enough awareness has been created to know that as drivers, it is so important that we put 100% of our attention and focus on the road. But what about when you’re eating? Do you text while at the table? Perhaps catching up on Instagram over lunch or mid-bite you’re reaching for the phone seconds after that *ding*? Or maybe you’re not texting but you are distracted in other ways… What has your attention?

The 10 Things That Each Made Me 10% Happier

By Melanie Taylor | Emotional Vitality , Spirituality

It seems like everywhere we look someone is telling us how to be happier. Commercials telling us what we need to buy to be happier. Store windows showing us the look of happier. Memberships to buy happiness long term. So how does this manifest? Being told over and over what we need to be happy, ultimately makes us question what we already have. It’s like that dangling carrot we can never quite reach. So how do we actually be happier?
