Good news: There are ways you can start improving your happiness by simply making a few adjustments to your environment and the way you interact with it.

That is a lot of time to perfect our influencing skills, but somehow all but the most accomplished still struggle at influencing the masses with their speech. There are, of course, a fair few notable examples. Socrates, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King and Winston Churchill to name but a few. They captivated their audiences with their every word. It didn’t matter how many people they were speaking to; their speeches were such that you felt that they were addressed to every single individual.

Their effortless style was underpinned by a finely-tuned (and barely perceptible) technique that allowed them to put their audience under their spell.

Once the lady looked at the correct day, however, the booking was duly located. A bit of a tricky beginning, but recoverable at this point... I had booked a floatation tank treatment and oxygen spa.

Lately for me there’s been a rather clear distinction between the two, where in the past it may have been a bit blurry.
