How To Create A Luxurious At Home Spa

We’ve experienced a whirlwind of emotions over the past week. We’ve cried, laughed, panicked and laughed some more. To say it’s a crazy time right now is an understatement. But in the spirit of keeping calm and carrying on, this weekend we set up a luxury spa in the comfort of our own home, and indulged in our favourite beauty treatments. It was bliss. It helped calm our anxieties. And it felt bloody good. So good in fact, that we’ve decided it has to be a weekly thing. ‘Self-care Sunday’ is wh...

Please Avoid Scams! Fake Job Postings, Threatening Emails, etc.

Other sports no. 3: Don King and the 45 minute answer

It was the week before the Mike Tyson versus Evander Holyfield rematch at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.I'd been at the first fight when Holyfield had pulled off a major upset by stopping Tyson in the eleventh round, even though beforehand there was a concern that Evander might actually die in the ring. He had been diagnosed with a heart condition that he now claimed had been cured by a faith healer.As a piece of sporting theatre it was the most exciting thing I'd seen. Afterwards both fighters cam...

These Skincare Organizers Will Help You Finally Feel Like You Have It All Together

There's nothing like organizing your beauty collection to make you feel like you have your sh*t together.

We Need to Align With What’s Coming Next

We’ve seen a lot of changes in the world this week due to the coronavirus situation. I think what many people don’t yet realize is that the rate of change isn’t going to be linear. It’s going to accelerate. Despite all the changes you’ve seen this week, next week’s changes will be bigger still… and the changes coming the week after that will be even bigger. So if your head is spinning now, it will spin twice as hard next week. In the USA I see people making some adaptations, but they seem ...

This Plant-Based Shampoo Took My Hair From Flat to Full in One Wash

This year, I've been making a major effort to clean up my beauty routine, from head to toe. While I've swapped out a face wash and serum for better choices, some things I hadn't explored yet were my hair products. I started asking some of my friends what clean hair products are effective, and I shockingly got a lot of negative comments about how they don't work as well. I decided to go on my own journey to find out. After reading a blog about clean hair products, I was turned onto the brand Rah...

Stress is a complex defense mechanism that we experience in relation to either internal or external threats.Self-inflicted stress is stress we inflict upon ourselves with our emotional and behavioral responses to certain situations.

The Opposite of Fear

Based on what I’ve been seeing regarding people’s reactions to the unfolding coronavirus situation, many seem to be trying to keep themselves out of fear mode. Instead of fear, they suggest to adopt a mode of thinking and being they typically describe with words like optimism or love. Stay positive. Don’t be afraid. Don’t panic. Turn towards love. Yet when you look at their responses and attitudes, what they’re really doing is one of more of these: Hoping that everything will be okay...

Shaping Church Culture

My definition of church culture is simple. It’s whatever has been celebrated or tolerated so long within a church that it shapes the behavior and values of everyone within the church, usually without their awareness. Few things scare me more as a pastor. If you’re the pastor of an established church, you’re inheriting an existing culture. Your job is to celebrate what’s good about the existing church culture and to begin to confront the areas of that church’s culture that are unbiblical. B...

Many of us don’t like to feel as though we’re missing out on something. In fact, the fear of missing out (FOMO) is likely something that is holding you back financially.

Things You Should Watch Out for When Viewing a House

House-hunting is exciting, fun and a significant life moment for everyone. While viewing listings online gives you an overview of what to expect, seeing the home in-person is another story.
