Stalkers face tougher prison sentences

News

Stalkers are to face a new maximum jail sentence of 10 years following a government U-turn. The Ministry of Justice announced it would adopt tough new measures in the Policing and Crime Bill after ministers conceded to pressure from a cross-party campaign to increase protection for victims. The new Bill is due to return to Commons next week.

Is damp January the new dry January?

The Ambitionist lifestyle

It’s the 29th December and today is the first day in approximately two weeks when I haven’t had a drink. That really does sound like the opening line to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. The thought of raising another glass of prosecco to my lips is quite stomach churning. Christmas, you’ve beaten me. I’m done. So it may come as a surprise that I’m not partaking in dry January.

Dealing with stress & anxiety

The Ambitionist lifestyle

If you suffer from bouts of overwhelming stress and anxiety you are not alone. Many of us know what it is feels like to be overtaken by worry, from fear of losing your job, financial concerns, relationship woes or just everything and nothing at the wrong time, however if anxiety is not controlled it can begin to take over your life and that’s when it becomes less of a nuisance and more of a mental concern that can escalate and even effect your physical wellbeing.

Why I’m giving up New Year’s resolutions

The Ambitionist lifestyle

My New Year’s resolution this year is to stop making them. Every January I make the same promises to myself and within a week they’re irrelevant, forgotten or broken. In the past I’ve set resolutions that are ambitious at best and unachievable at worst and by day 5 I feel deflated, frustrated and down-trodden.

This year I’m doing things differently and I’m confident that 2016 is going a year of positive change. My ‘resolutions’ remain largely the same, however I’m viewing them as new lifestyle choices, goals and ambitions rather than singular resolves that once broken cannot be restored.
