The reverse advent calendar

The reverse advent calendar

It’s been the longest, shortest year. December is almost knocking on our doors and with it the looming spectre of Christmas. What would the “looming spectre of Christmas” look like? I’m seeing a giant Santa, or maybe a gargantuan snowman. Don’t get me wrong, I like Christmas, I even had mince pies this week! I […]

Would you take the hyperloop?

Would you take the hyperloop?

Amsterdam to Paris in 90 minutes. New York to Washington in 30 minutes. The first successful passenger test on Richard Branson’s Virgin Hyperloop have brought these lightning journey times one step closer to reality.  To put it into context, that’s twice as fast as a commercial flight from Washington to NYC, and four times faster than a […]

Just what is it about the Bake Off?

Just what is it about the Bake Off?

Earlier this week I sat down and watched the final of the Great British Bake Off. The scary thing? This is the eleventhyear that I’ve partaken in this ritual. Cup of tea, some kind of snack (you need the snack, you cannot watch all that cake without a snack) and an hour of cosy warmth. This […]

Easy and eco-friendly tech tips

Looking for some straightforward ways to up your eco-credentials?

Feel Alyve this winter

Feel Alyve this winter

The festive season is upon us, and with it has come the cold weather.  If you’re anything like me, you’ve got the Christmas decs out, the fire is on and your evening routine now regularly involves mulled wine, fluffy socks and Michael Bublé. This is what I call, self-care. Of course, just as we must manage our […]

Do we need mental health first aiders at work?

Do we need mental health first aiders at work?

Whilst there are legal requirements around the presence of a qualified first aider in the workplace, the training of mental health first aiders is becoming increasingly common. As it’s accepted that mental and physical health are two sides of the same coin, it makes a lot of sense that employers are looking to do more to support […]

The theory of everything (to do with driving)

The theory of everything (to do with driving)

At 24 years of age some might say it’s an odd time to decide to learn to drive. Particularly now as exams have been postponed, the waiting list multiplies, and lessons are scarce as instructors say ‘no thanks’ to sitting next to young potentially asymptomatic and infectious people. Fair enough.  But truth be told I […]

Why does my business need video?

Why does my business need video?

Did you know that YouTube is the world’s second most visited website after Google? This shouldn’t be surprising as in an increasingly ‘text heavy” online world, video content is much easier to digest. The human brain is said to process visuals 60,000 times faster than we can process text. Video content is dynamic, engaging and allows your […]

My first steps into volunteering

My first steps into volunteering

There’s a well-known episode of Friends where Joey and Phoebe argue whether there’s such a thing as “a selfless good deed”. Phoebe eventually donates money to an organisation that she dislikes, inadvertently gets Joey on TV, feels good about this, and so her selfless act is ruined. From my own experience, volunteering falls squarely into the […]
