Stress v Stretched, unfortunately for many of us stress has become a major part of our lives with the pressure of juggling family, work, finances and life in general we can easily find ourselves running around busy but feeling as though we have not achieved anything.
Stress left out of control can lead to mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, anger, OCD and panic attacks because we are living on high alert we lose the enjoyment of life and are no longer living in the moment. There are also physical health implications with reports of most health issues being linked with stress so it is vital for your wellbeing to find a comfortable balance.

Find your passion for life!
Lerato was an ambitious strong talented woman facing a four hour interview for a senior management role at a large corporation. With an Apprentice style boardroom location the pressure was on to be her best to win the deal and prove her worth. Which is exactly what Lerato did when her laptop crashed minutes before her presentation. With the techniques learnt and the power to stay calm Lerato managed to complete her presentation without her slides and was proudly offered the job not necessarily for a slick presentation but because of her ability to stay calm under pressure as at the end of the day s**t happens but it is how you deal with it that counts!
This is your life - make it a good one!

Discover your sparkle
We all invest in our appearance, homes and cars but if you are not investing in your soul then happiness will be hard to come by.
If we have limiting negative beliefs about ourselves or the world in which we live they will limit our growth and progress in how we live and love.
When you are truly confident it radiates from within you, it is just there and people feel and see it and want to be with you. It is far different from cockiness or brash behaviour you do not change the way you act it just organically happens by changing the way you feel.
Banish limiting negative thoughts this is by far the best gift you can give yourself because when you have true inner confidence everything just falls into place and magic happens!
Kick those negative thoughts out of the window as they no longer serve you - it is time to be your own best friend!
