You can manage your Seasonal Affective Disorder
Very, very sad to read that safety campaigner Diana Lamplugh OBE has died 25 years after her daughter Suzywas abducted, never to be found.
She had enormous strength and courage and did something incredibly positive out of an absolute tragedy by setting up the Suzy Lamplugh Trust.
It does fantastic work and one small way you can support the Trust is if you need a personal safety alarm then buy one from their website. I wish the very best for the rest of her family who have always been brave and courageous in handling their tremendous loss.
On a very different note I'm loving Matthew P - check out his track Gilly - something infectious about him. Definitely a summery acoustic vibe.
I've had lots of e-mails over the summer about friendships gone wrong, toxic friends, that sort of thing. Funny enough I'm writing an article about one aspect of friendships - will give you a heads-up when it's ready.
It's something about the summer where cracks ain friendships become more obvious - with the better weather [well, this summer hasn't seen good whether] we expect to hang out with our friends. And if you find they're changing plans to suit them, dropping plans at the last minute, hard to track down when you want to go out, etc., then it hurts.
These are the sorts of questions I've been getting in my mailbag.
TODAY’S TIP: we know all owe friends second and third chances. But if your friend has repeatedly let you down pulled them up on it.
It's not an easy conversation but you can start it by telling them something very positive - why they’re [usually] great mate, what you love about them, how much fun you had with them when you did X., Y. or Z., etc.
Then move on to the tough stuff -- don't beat around the bush, be straightforward and ask why they've been mucking you about.
Let's face it friendships aren't that different from romances when you've got to tackle problems in them.
And like a romance sometimes you move on but not without trying.
I hope it works out for you, happy Thursday, Pam X
My new book The Emotional Eater's Diet is published in the UK on May 15 - I’m very excited as I hope emotional eaters - women or men will find it helpful. Each year 2/3s of people start a diet and 20% start a new diet each month. Yet 95% of diets aren’t successful.
I firmly believe that emotional eating to soothe difficult feelings is the culprit behind most of this failure. My book has a huge range of practical tips/strategies to help understand your emotions and manage your appetite. There are mini-quizes and real case studies.
It’s available to preorder on Amazon. Please remember that food can fuel your energy needs but not your emotional needs. Take care!
