Tragic events do not heed nor take consideration of our human feelings.

It is entirely normal to experience feelings of outrage, hurt and sorrow at such times.We may feel devastated, angry and want revenge.

But feelings of being wronged and hurt, while normal, can prolong our suffering.

Although it is not easy, dealing effectively with sorrow requires us to accept, forgive and gradually let go.

It may be an old cliché that your health is your wealth, but it's true.

The ancient Greeks knew that good health is something to develop and treasure.

It is easy to take our health for granted, until we lose it.

Our whole experience of life can be very different if we don’t have good physical and mental health.

"I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed" Michael Jordon

A basic human need is to grow and achieve success at some level in our lives. You might seek success in your profession; you might want success on the sporting field; or to be a successful parent; or to be successful in your business; or to succeed in living your spiritual or religious beliefs.

Each of us has our own definition of success. But the clearer we are on what success means for us, the more likely we are to achieve it.

Much happiness can be obtained by giving.

When we give of ourselves to others we feel the glow of the life force flowing through us.

Our sense of spiritual fulfilment is strongly associated with our contribution to the well-being of others.

No one can survive without others contributing in some way to their welfare.

New born babies do not survive unless they are given care and attention from others. Babies cannot develop alone.

Giving and receiving is an essential human need. We have evolved to give and to receive.

We all want our lives to be full of those things we believe will bring us joy and happiness.

But we also need to be careful not to fill our lives with too much stuff.

Ours is the most complex culture in history.

We experience more activity and devour more information in one day than our ancestors did in a lifetime.

We live in the midst of an intense technological haze of consumerism, advertising and entertainment.

We find it hard to dispose of stuff and now plastic pollutes the planet.

We seem to have an infinite capacity for making a mess!

“If you want to reduce the anxiety from living, live in the moment, live in the breath.” Amit Ray

Breathing is for life!

We could survive without food for several weeks. Without water, the maximum we could survive is one week. Without sleep, we begin to hallucinate after 3 or 4 days.

But without breathing it is minutes!

Most of the time we are completely unaware of our breathing but without it, oxygen does not get into our lungs.

Not breathing deeply enough results in lack of energy and moodiness.

Just by taking a few deep breaths, regularly, you will calm your mind and relax your body.

"Focus on finding a solution, rather than just dwelling on the problem"

Good problem solvers put the focus on finding a solution rather than the problem.

Defining a problem clearly and correctly is important - a problem fully stated is half-solved.

But most of us spend 80% of the time on the problem and only 20% on finding a solution.

We tend to be "Problem Focused" rather than "Solution Focused" because it is easier to blame than act.

This audio learning experience includes a guided process for using left and right brain characteristics for problem solving.

The practice of mindfulness helps to reduce stress and anxiety and contributes to our mental wellbeing. Mindfulness helps us to take notice of what is happening in the present moment.

By being more engaged with the present, we improve our focus on what really matters.

This improves understanding of our values, priorities and motivations.

We live in a constant stream of commentary running through our heads. But when we take notice and observe our mind, we are less likely to be controlled by negative thoughts.

Life's opportunities are not always immediately obvious.

Sometimes all it takes is a subtle change in thinking to make the most of them. There are no shortage of problems in this world.

But within every problem lies an opportunity to create a better solution.

Sara Dylan will be talking you through this mindchef presentation, written by Elaine McFerran, on how to prepare an irish beef and stout pie for four people. If you are only cooking for two why not cook for four and freeze some for a later meal?

Just so you know what to expect here’s the sequence; first I’ll be explaining what ingredients you will need for this dish, followed by the equipment you’ll need to gather together before you begin. Then we’ll run through the stages of preparation and cooking.

Once you’ve gathered your ingredients and equipment together, it should take you about three and a half hours to make this pie, but much of this time won’t involve any effort on your part, the filling just needs to cook nice and slowly. To give yourself enough time and to know when you’ll need to start, work back about three and a half hours from the time you want to serve the meal.

If you don’t feel too confident in your cooking skills don’t stress! Make yourself a cup of tea or coffee and listen through the whole process before you begin. Don’t forget you can pause and rewind me as many times as you need. Cooking should be fun so don’t worry too much.

Assuming you have downloaded this audio to your mobile phone you can take me with you as you walk around the kitchen and when you shop for groceries.
