Today, Saturday the 13th of May 2017 I attended Psychology Day at NUI Galway to celebrate #psychologymattersday. There were a number of speakers, speaking on diverse topics from mindfulness to the shadow man!
First up we had a wonderfully insightful talk on mindfulness by Chris Noone. I nodded in agreement several times with what Chris was saying.
“Getting older is inevitable, aging is optional”. I love this quote by Dr. Christiane Northrup, M.D., a visionary pioneer in women’s health.
Like everything in life, we can choose what mindset we want to adopt in relation to getting older!
Society bombards us with anti aging this and anti-aging that, and stories of pain, aches, wrinkles and endings. But we can choose instead to see aging as a new beginning. Merely a new stage of our life, an initiation into our wisdom years. Not that long ago elders were respected for their wisdom rather than disregarded and put out to pasture and, out of sight at times.
The Galway Food Festival boosts food demonstrations, culinary walking tours, foraging walks, kids pizza materclasses and so much more!! Of course there are also many, many food stalls with a diverse range of products from seaweed to biscuits; chocolate to cheese; kale to honey and cheeses of all shapes and sizes!!

When it comes to maintaining emotional balance in our work place we are dealing with two different levels; external factors and internal factors.
Some aspects of our actual work environment may be stressful for us, maybe there is not enough light in the room we work in, possibly there is no air and we find it stuffy or maybe the air conditioning unit is straight over our head.
In this day and age, when we are surrounded by pollution, the one thing we can control and take care of is what kind of food we eat. Therefore, a lot of people are choosing to eat a bit more expensive organic food rather than conventionally-grown food which is full of various toxic chemicals.
One of the biggest forms of waste in today’s world is the increasing amount of food that’s never eaten. As the world population continues to grow, so does the need for producing enough food to feed everyone.
But approximately 30 percent of the food that’s produced ultimately goes to waste. This results from a number of factors including issues related to the food supply chain.
We have to do this thing called living* - why a f€&@ off attitude is essential to achieving your goals
Did you know that October 1 st is UN international day of older persons ? Quite a mouthful don't you think? And at what age are you considered an older person? My 17 year old might think that at 54 I'm ancient while my parents who are in their 80's think I'm still only a young one.
We are often told we cannot love others unless we first start to love ourselves.

Enjoy this pod cast on how to become grounded with our emotions.
Our first and second chakras, our own personal energy centres, are very inter-related to each other. When we can learn to be just be with our stories and related emotions and to not let them consume us, we are better able to step into our personal power in all aspects of our life.
We are more in control. When stories come up for us in the future, which they will, we will have more of an ability to take the story for what it is and deal with it in a more emotionally mindful way that will give us a better result.
