From a very young age, the passion of sport has been inside me. One of the things I most miss living in the North East of England is being able to watch my beloved Arsenal Football Club play. This feeling is at its greatest right now as I'm sitting waiting for the kick off to our game against our local rivals Tottenham.

Are you buried among a pile of stress management books? It is difficult not to feel stressed with modern day living the way that it is. Let’s be honest here, we all suffer stress from time to time. It comes at us from so many directions, maybe family problems or too many pressures at work.
