Happiness and Well-being is set to make waves in Wales

Happiness and Well-being is set to make waves in Wales 

With the recent Well-being Act being introduced to Wales, our happiness has started to become more of a focus. It is well documented that at the root of many of the illnesses we suffer with today is the level of stress that we are dealing with at any one time.


Stress hormones in the body create disease in the same way that overloading the body with alcohol or any one type of drug can. Over focusing on the negative aspects of life is one of the key reasons why we develop stress. What happens to our body is that when we focus on the stressful situations, we overdevelop the stress hormone cortisol within our bodies. What this hormone does in small doses is helpful, but when there is too much of it hanging around in our nervous systems, we become ill.

This upcoming workshop tickets here by the Entrepreneur Rebecca Mills, will help on how regular stress can affect the body in so many ways, people who overproduce cortisol can even become addicted to the feeling and become stress addicts, the main side effects of stress are:

  • Insomnia – you struggle to sleep at night
  • Lethargy – a feeling of tiredness no matter how much you sleep
  • – Weight gain – cortisol will make you add weight around your waist line, even if you are doing well on your diet
  • – Low immunity – you tend to pick up colds or coughs easily
  • – Craving sugar – cortisol raises your blood sugar levels putting you at risk of diabetes and at risk of cravings
  • – Aches and pains – excessive cortisol hypersensitizes the brain to pain, so even the slightest twinge can cause headaches
  • – Low libido – cortisol lowers the sex hormone, so your libido disappears

But there is a way to turn things around.

The reason why stress can be difficult to eradicate from our lives is the way in which it affects us. When we have a stressful episode, our mind can go into overdrive repeating back to us negative feelings or thoughts. These negative thoughts in turn affect our actions, even ending in self sabotage at times.

The way to turn things around is in training the mind to think differently. Instead of allowing our stress levels to control us, we need to take control of our stress levels.

“It is easy to feel like stress has us by the throat...” says Rebecca Mills, Founder of Elysium that runs workshops for happiness throughout South Wales, “...but stress is usually the result of us thinking that we are not in control of the voice in our head, many times that voice tried to sabotage my life, but when I realised that I could change what it said to me, that I was in control of how much stress I allowed myself to take on, things began to change”

Rebecca believes that stress is the reason for much of the disease we suffer today. “When you look up the affects of cortisol, the hormone that stress produces in our bodies, you see that stress is affecting our systems in such awful ways, and we need to avoid stress as much as possible”

The NHS has many tips on reducing stress and with the new Well-being Act being introduced to Wales, it is imagined that this support will improve.

Rebecca runs regular workshops in and around South Wales, her weekly workshops in Caerphilly start in September and run every Monday in the local Library. If you would just like to come along and see what these workshops are like,

Rebecca is also running workshops with the Cardiff Hero Coffee mornings and her next workshop is on September 8th with the title: To change the world around you, do you have to change the world or simply how you see it?

A workshop on changing our perspectives. Rebecca's book Happy Regardless is also available for download from her website elysiumhappiness

Adorable Cute Kittens Pictures

We have collected adorable cute pictures of kittens for the enjoyment of our visitors and readers. A kitten (also known as a kitty or kitty cat) is a juvenile cat. After being born, kittens are totally dependent on their mother for survival and do not normally open their eyes until after seven to ten days.

After about two weeks, kittens quickly develop and begin to explore the world outside the nest. After a further three to four weeks, they begin to eat solid food and grow adult teeth. Domestic kittens are highly social animals and enjoy human companionship. Source.

Why You Cannot Get Ahead Without a Mobile App in 2015

Why You Cannot Get Ahead Without a Mobile App in 2015
Webmasters and keen followers of the news will all have been aware of the latest update from Google, which was launched on 21st April. The new algorithm, dubbed ‘Mobilegeddon’ by many sceptics, was put in place to ensure that sites which were optimised for mobile devices ranked higher on Google’s search engine results pages.
While it is one thing for a website to rank highly on Google thanks to a mobile site, it is another thing altogether to incorporate one’s own app into a business. Whether your business is well-established or you’re just starting out, here are a few reasons why you cannot be without a mobile app in 2015.
Mobile apps are 24/7
Imagine a world where you can guarantee top class customer service around the clock, without having to rely on cumbersome call centres. Of course, this is not to discount the obvious benefits of human contact, but the advantages of a mobile app are that a customer can log on at a time that is co…
