I've been interested in finding out what does it mean to be someone's mentor and I've been along to a day's mentor training! So when I saw this article I thought it was worth a share. Everyone can use a mentor, according to Anthony Tjan (CEO of Boston venture capital firm Cue Ball Group and author of Good People), we could all use five mentors. 'The best mentors can help us define and express our inner calling,' says Anthony. In this short list, Tjan has identified the five kinds of people you should have in your corner.
I found this article an interesting read so worth a share. Young men obsessed with building muscles have higher mental health risks. They're at a higher risk for depression, weekend binge drinking, and unnecessary dieting. Focusing on the perceived shortcomings of one's body is an all-too-common road to depression and anxiety. Fitness selfies are one of the most common forms of self-promotion—and self-anxiety, it turns out!
I've tried mindfulness but I just couldn't get into a daily habit. There was one time I attended a group meditation session where we all asked to focus on our breath. Yet, all I could hear was the person's stomach, sitting next to me, gurgling away, who was clearly hungry, took a lot of self-control to stop myself laughing! However, that being said, this could be a useful tool, it may help to provide a level of calm or some emotional control. Being able to focus on your breath, may give you that space to stop and think if you find yourself triggered by someone or something. So here's this free ten-minute mindfulness video - enjoy.
