Wikizine - Wellness

It is widely accepted that Divorce is one of the biggest challenges in your life and threatens your wellbeing, health, finances, other relationships, work environment and your career prospects. This article aims to point out how talking therapy in its various forms can help the “Divorce” journey run more smoothly. 

Moving On With Your Head Held High

This year has romped by for me. Within the space of a year, I’ve become a bone fide singleton through divorce, passed umpteen personal trainer and nutrition exams.

Getting A Good Night’s Sleep

Sleep is one of our most precious resources. It is vital to our health and well-being. Just as we need food for energy, we need sleep to relax and recharge. During sleep the body renews its energy, releases growth hormones, and heals itself. In times of extreme stress sleep is one of the first things to become disrupted.

Support for Men in Abusive Relationships

Ippo Panteloudakis, Helplines Manager of Mens Advice Line wrote this informative article exclusively for Wikivorce. Peter was being abused by his ex-partner Katie for 2 years. He self–harmed and eventually attempted suicide as a result of the abuse and the isolation he felt because of his disability. Peter felt he couldn’t hit back a woman. 

One member's account of dealing with depression

My mother once said to me “why is it you when you fall, you always land  on your feet?” Actually I always fall on my a**e, but I pull myself up again and face life head on. I finally faced up to having depression recently - I had ignored all the warning signs for too long - and if I’m honest, I’ve probably been suffering from depression for a long time. 

Rehearse a Positive Outcome...

I remember the story of a farmer that needed to borrow a plough. He thought to himself, “...I know, I’ll ask farmer Brown down the lane...he’ll lend me his plough”...

Tea, Anyone?

Once again, I am delighted to write for the magazine, and being the story-teller that I am, this month, I shall indulge in the telling of a story called, “The Tea-Cup”

Warts ‘n’ All

You are beautiful no matter what you say! But do you accept yourself as the saying goes “warts and all”? My wish for everyone in a relationship is that they feel safe enough to be authentic every day of their lives, but authenticity requires being real and accepting that we are what we are now and that’s not an easy place for many.

A Perfect Size 10?

How times have changed. No longer is a size 10 so perfect. Those of us of a certain age will remember the 1979 romantic comedy '10' starring Dudley Moore and Bo Derek - the title of the film referring of course to Bo's enviable proportions. 

Emotional Pareidolia

Professional hypnotherapist, Steve Lauder, talks to Wikizine's readers: 'Human beings have a remarkable gift, but one with potential for unwanted consequences, the gift for pattern recognition.'Here, is the technical description, (brace yourselves): Pareidolia is a phenomenon of psychological origin involving an indistinct and arbitrary stimulus, frequently something like an image or sound, being experienced as significant.

Moods vs. Emotions

There is a world of difference between emotions and moods. Emotions are short lived feelings with a clear subject. You are angry with somebody or sad about something. Moods often last longer and do not necessarily have a clear target. “Mood” refers to a general feeling of pleasure or displeasure, irritation, or anxiety.
