    R.I.P. Christchurch

    Reading Time: 2 Minutes Crazy, crazy, crazy. That’s the reaction we had when we first heard of the tragic incident unfolding in Christchurch, New Zealand. You see usually, on Friday afternoon, I’d be winding down – maybe even having a drink or two with my work colleagues as we pat ourselves on the back for another week down. But I remember that this Friday I was going full TILT. Been a pretty full-on couple of weeks actually and this week was no different.

    5 Ways to Combat Stress

    Reading Time: 5 minutes  What’s up guys – how y’all doing? Hope everyone’s having a great weekend! The days are slowly getting longer which means we’re coming through the back end of winter, as we limp forward through the second half of 2018. How’s your year coming along? Hopefully it’s been productive and fruitful so far. If not – don’t fret, still some time left to get cracking! Sometimes though, I have this feeling that I’m spinning wheels for the sake of spinning them as opposed to actually gaining any ground. Know what I mean? These days, there’s a seeming badge of honour to boast as to how “busy” we…
