Getting positively involved with people increases joy and wellbeing.

To become deeply involved with people it is necessary to be aware of your prejudices, which really amount to pre-judgements.

By withholding pre-judgement, you are better able to experience people as they are rather than from your ideas about them. Genuine engagement is supported by trusting the inherent goodness of people. It is amazing how people will rise to such an expectation and so be enabled to bring their best qualities to the interaction. In today’s world where folks from different cultures, values and beliefs struggle to find a way to live together, holding an open enabling mind-set will enhance the wellbeing of all.

Want to take action? Try this:

Becoming aware of these pre-judgements may be difficult, but a helpful way to hunt them down is to attune yourself to becoming aware of when you say something like: “They always…..…”” They never…….“ ”Everyone knows…..” ‘’Women/men always ..….’’ ‘’That’s management for you ……’’ ‘’They will never ……’’

Then challenge yourself: “Is this really so….…? Everyone….…? All……? Never….…?’’

Tips for a kinder festive season

It’s been a stressful year. In fact, it’s been a stressful two years! As we head into the holiday season, it’s important to take the time to not only reflect on a turbulent 2021, but also to focus on finding ways to slow down. Christmas decorations, shopping madness, carols on repeat, and general end-of-year craziness, can take their toll, often leaving you feeling overwhelmed and exhausted.

An attack on the vulnerable is an attack on the social heart of us all

An attack on the vulnerable is an attack on the social heart of us all

When violence is perpetrated against our mothers, sisters, wives and children, the whole of society suffers.
Act to seek out such suffering – it may be hiding in that very women or child in front of you. Fear and pain are hidden within victims of violence. They often tend to remain silent about their shame, pain and fear.
