  • 5 Ways to Kill Your Dreams

    It's been a little while since our last Q Recommends blogpost update! We're back in action now and continue with our 'Coffee Time Reading' recommendations to share some inspiring content which you can read/watch/listen while you're enjoying your morning coffee. 

    With January being the time when everyone is motivated to keep up with New Year's resolutions and turn dreams into reality, we thought we would share a TED talk about what NOT to do if you want to achieve your dreams. 

  • What it takes to be successful?

    Start of a new week means that it's time for our new content recommendation to kick-start your week.

     

    This week's Q Recommends post is about  Take FLIGHT podcast with Victoria Pendleton. Being 2 time Olympic Champion and 9 Time World Champion cyclist & one of the most successful female Team GB Olympians of all time, she definitely is a well placed person to share a thing or two about how to become the best version of yourself. 

    Give this podcast a listen and find out more about Victoria's habits, rituals and beliefs that power her to achieve her goals. 

  • Why should you define your fears instead of your goals?

    This week's Q Recommends content recommendation is a TED talk done by Tim Ferriss on why should we define our fears instead of defining our goals. 

    This talk is less than 15 minutes long and is a perfect inspiring piece of content to watch while having your Monday morning coffee to get your motivated for a great week. 

    In his speech, Tim is discussing the difficult choices we have to make, and explains how these difficult decisions usually lead us to positive changes in our lives. 

  • Stress and happiness - how can we train ourselves to live a stress-proof life

    It's already beginning of September, time to wrap up summer holidays and get back into our daily routines. Back to school time is exciting time of the year but the end of the summer also means that days are going to get busier and  life might get a little stressful. 

    That's why this week's Q Recommends blog post is about a fascinating podcast episode recorded by Deliciously Ella with Dr Mithu Storoni. In this episode they talk about stress, particularly about how our brain responds to stressful situations and  how can we train ourselves to manage stress in a way that helps us to achieve our peak performance.
