It takes a strong person to ask for help

When we are suffering a mental discomfort, or in fact experiencing any kind of difficulty it can be really hard to ask for help. We all have pride and an ego that we must uphold that we are self sufficient, self reliant and incredibly ‘strong’. But what is true strength? Is it strong to walk alone and tackle everything yourself or is it stronger to seek help from those professionals who care about your welfare and understand how the mind works better than most in order to maintain good health? We explore the idea of strength in this blog post.

Mind Games | John Lennon – a song to lift you

Mind Games by John Lennon a fantastic tune to lift your spirits if you listen to the lyrics. We all feel that when we are battling our problems we are fighting a game within our own minds.

Being from Liverpool the founder of BoM feels a deep connection to John Lennon.

Not only for this reason but because so many things in my life have linked me to this great musician. As a child the founder lived in a village called Woolton all of his youth, only three streets away from where John Lennon stayed with his aunt.

I attended a primary school where John Lennon first performed as ‘the Beatles‘, he lived around the corner from the infamous Strawberry fields AND when I was teacher training the final school I taught in was a private school that John sent his son Julian to, plus, we are both married to asian women so I guess there couldn’t be any more coincidences and I guess you can tell, I am a huge fan of the man!

Regardless of this it can’t be argued that John was a genius with a kind heart and always promoted peace for all and peace within ourselves in all of his work regardless of being ridiculed or going against the grain.

This song is a fantastic lift and I hope you enjoy it just as much as I do every time I listen to it and find some peace in the words of this musical and artistic genius. Enjoy!

5 steps to start to change your career

After experiencing a difficult graduation at the foot of the 2008 economic recession, in a city known to be neglected by the British government financially the founder of BoM understands the difficulty and depression that comes with the lack of opportunity to work. Likewise, after changing direction into teaching and realising he didn’t like the profession he also knows what it feels like to be trapped in a job or career that doesn’t make you happy.

In this blog post he discusses his thought process and how he managed to find a profession that he enjoys. He used this strategy three times to change his career path three in four years before arriving at his calling and most importantly how you can do it too.

Suffering depression? Find your inner spartan and KEEP GOING

No retreat, no surrender that is spartan law!

When suffering from depression we have to options. Two listen to the feelings and thoughts of sadness and negativity that often come with physical pains or we can choose to take the difficult path, confront how we feel and challenge ourselves into situations.

It can be quite easy to choose the option of shrinking into our beds and from the world and let our negative thoughts and feelings win, that is fine, we all need to do it now and again but it is really important that we also find our inner spartans ( or spartan-esses) to fight back against depression.

The thing about being depressed is that it makes everything you do so heavy, like gravity has gone up a notch in strength and it feels almost impossible to do even the basic things but you HAVE TO FIND YOUR INNER SPARTAN, the ones that won’t give up and won’t be defeated until they have no breath left to take. You never give up, you never throw in your towel, that is not the way to grow stronger and you can be strong!

Don’t judge anyone, including self, regardless of past, everyone needs hope and a chance in life

How often do we hear bad news on the television or read about someone selling drugs, prostituting themselves or taking part in some other illegal activity and we judge them as ‘bad’. More often than not there is a reason that led to these people doing what they did and trying to understand their situation and knowing the whole story can give more empathy for a person who had lost all hope after he had made some bad choices out of desperation or despair. In this blog we share a video that will help you realize that not every criminal is a bad person but also that no matter the bad decisions you may have made in your past there is always someone willing to help you get yourself back, never give up on yourself.
