TSHP466: Lessons From Amsterdam / Finding our FLOW

What’s Coming This Episode?

Ed & Sean are back from 4 days in the city of Amsterdam. It’s a funny place to come back from – most friends and family have made quips about getting stoned, drunk or hanging out with strippers. However, we were there on a mission to see how a functioning city works. We visited Fully Charged Live but also got to wander aimlessly around the amazing streets of the old city. People walking, cycling and even the odd person driving. It had a big impact on us both – here’s what we thought.

TSHP465: You’ve Got To Laugh

What’s Coming This Episode?

There is a time in the madness of the world when I guess all that you can do is laugh. At this time it can be easy to feel that there is nothing good happening in the world. We have covid and the ongoing effects of covid, real wars and not just rumours of wars, the ongoing effects of Brexit, the ongoing antics of Trump and the ego stretching of Putin, what seems to be a collapsing NHS and Boris in number 10. This has to be the time to make a joke and have a laugh I think.

TSHP464: The Power of a Smile

What’s Coming This Episode?

Keep smiling. It’s Sean’s favourite sign off for each episode! Easy to say, and for some it’s easy to do. But do we know the science of smiling? Can smiling be ‘learned’ or is it instinctive for some and not for others?

TSHP463: Is Generosity the Key to Happiness?

What’s Coming This Episode?

With covid, food banks and the Ukrainian war the concept of generosity and giving comes, for many of us, clearly into focus. Often we feel helpless in the face of all the trauma and the need to give something can ease our emotional burden and make us feel better. How much can it help? Let’s explore…

TSHP462: Holidays in the UK are the future?

What’s Coming This Episode?

Between the 1950s and the 1970s Britains favourite holiday destination was Britain. The West Country was heaving with people, not only from the UK but, from all over the world. COVID taught us to appreciate our local environment more and now a fuel and energy crisis looks to do similar. Can we take the hint? How can we make the most of our time off?

TSHP461: Degrees of consciousness and the rise of fascism

What’s Coming This Episode?

Everywhere I am looking I am seeing the expanding crisis with Putin in Ukraine. As I look across the world it all seems so much like an action replay of the 1930s prior to the Second World War. This is a tough blog and very much embedded in our time and the very things that are happening around us. Across the world there is political lurch to the right that, in many cases, is becoming fascistic.

TSHP460: Be Kind

What’s Coming This Episode?

We live in a strange world where physical violence is seen as bad and verbal violence becomes acceptable. Is it okay for someone to make a joke about your partner on national TV? Do we sit back and say nothing? To be kind is so easy and creates so much positivity. Why do we need to get nasty?

TSHP458: Your Inner Voice

What’s Coming This Episode?

We all have that inner voice that tells us if we are doing right or wrong. I say we all have it – even a full blown psychopath has an inner voice it is just that it is never heard or listened to. Your inner voice is your conscience. Let’s discuss how much it can be trusted and when to question it…

TSHP457: Message in a bottle

What’s Coming This Episode?

We use the word ‘addiction’ to indicate an illness which is based on the behaviour of a person who is compulsively or habitually ‘addicted’ to a substance or a set of behaviours. Most behaviours that are described as addictions are seen as negative. When we hear the word addiction we tend to think of drugs or alcohol. We might even consider the workaholic. Which ever way we view it addiction is seen negative. Are we all addicts?
