About Jordan Ralph

Wellness and its ability drive enhanced performance and fulfilment from your life has been a building passion for me over several years, from a time when my own physical and mental wellness was severely depleted.

The personal effect of soul destroying jobs extends beyond the job - it invades our wellbeing at home and at work. A job we hate dominates our thoughts and emotions outside of work, for instance, the dread which accompanies Sunday afternoon, knowing work is tomorrow. We cannot function properly outside of work if we don't [...]

Exercise is comparable to medication in the treatment of anxiety (and better than other “treatments”)

Anxiety is becoming an increasingly diagnosed disorder. This is bringing more and more people in contact with doctors, psychologists, and psychiatrists, and increasingly anxiety is being treated with medication, therapy, and soothing treatments. This is a shame because since 2008 it has been proven that exercise: Works better than: - Stress management education - Group therapy [...]

Sweet Nothings?

The sugar debate rages on and on, and along with each polemic attack on sugar, and stories of individuals experiencing life epiphanies emanating from cutting sugar from theirs diets altogether, hordes of people jump on the bandwagon and profess to give it up hence forth.
