London, United Kingdom I was looking at a picture in a magazine this week, underneath the caption “Inner Voices”. It was of a man dressed in a suit. Sitting on his right shoulder was a tiny figure with a radiant smile. This figure was whispering lots of positive, supportive statements to the man, such as: […]

Managing Emotions | Roger Porthouse | #LetsResetNormal

Surviving-the-Coronavirus-Lockdown-and-Social-Isolation-FRONT-RGB

Kendall, Cumbria, United Kingdom Emotions have a habit of running riot when you let them. They can be all-consuming, preventing rational thought and action. This is because your emotional brain operates independently from your rational brain and when it gets aroused (upset), it hogs all the resources that your rational brain needs to function correctly.

Publisher, Cardiff, United Kingdom Like many business owners across the world, my story is unremarkable. I run a publishing company, the one publishing this book.

Sandwich, Kent, UK  I am writing this from my own home where we were put into effective ‘lockdown’ last night.

Anglo-American author, cellist and editor, recovered from coronavirus, London, United Kingdom In common with most people, I’ve had a couple of close brushes with death.

Seoul, South Korea Four years ago I had cancer surgery. I didn’t take any medication or have radiation afterwards; I just decided to focus on my life rather than the cancer. My life is the most important thing to me. I treated my illness like it was my best friend; I wrote letters and talked […]

Social Networks from CV19 | Simon Haben | #LetsResetNormal

Norfolk, UK The words below are my personal perspectives and not the views of any organisation I may be seen to represent. They were also written without any verified data and therefore contain potentially inaccurate assumptions. Alongside the uncertainty created by CV-19, a more long-lasting and potentially deeper issue is occurring. The changing way our […]
