Going From Sluggish To Vibrant - Making Change Easy!

Going From Sluggish To Vibrant - Making Change Easy!

How are you feeling today? 

Do you feel alive, vibrant, ready to take on the world; or a bit sluggish and fatigued, perhaps wondering how you’re going to get through the day? 

Grabbing a coffee might make you feel great for a few hours, and a glass of wine may give you the pep to get through your evening; but are you running on empty under the surface?

Leaning Into Emotion

Leaning Into Emotion

When we’re struggling, experiencing a difficult emotion or circumstance, it’s human nature to want to push this away, get rid of the feeling, or numb it down as an alternative to the pressure we might feel going on internally.

After all, our basic human want is to feel happy.  However, life being what it is, while we can do our best at keeping all the balls in the air, sometimes they just go flying right!

Create The Life You Want To Live

Create The Life You Want To Live

How do you want to feel today?

When you woke up did you take some time to think about what your day would look like?  Or did you just head straight for the coffee machine and check your email?

The morning is a powerful time where we can set ourselves up with intention for the day ahead; rather than just slipping into a long to do list, possibly still a bit aimless as to what your priorities are, and how to get it all done.

29 Gifts

29 Gifts

Give a little and make a bit impact!

I’ve been inspired this month by the story of Cami Walker.  Diagnosed with MS at a young age, losing her ability to walk, use of her hands, plus sight in one eye; her prescription from an African healer, was to give away 29 gifts in 29 days, with the words that “healing doesn’t happen in a vacuum, but through our transactions with other people.”

Keeping Your Why Alive!

Keeping Your Why Alive!

Everything you have in your life is something you have chosen.

Be it your work, your relationships, your hobbies, and even your daily habits.  However, are these things you've actively chosen consciously, or have they evolved on an unconcious level?

It's important to remember that you have choice at every moment, whether that be to choose the same thing, or if it has evolved to choose again for a new reason, or to choose something completely different; recognising it’s not about the “what”, or the “how", but about your “why”.

Meditation To Get Good At Life

Meditation To Get Good At Life

"We don’t meditate to get good at Meditation, we meditate to get good at life"

I love this expression, because for me it rings so true; for every delicious, blissful experience, there’s another one right around the corner that’s agitating, boring and quite frankly I can’t wait for it to be over!  

(Apologies, I’m probably not making it very tempting right now, am I?) 

However, every day regardless I still hit the meditation pillow without fail.  So, what gets me on that chair every day?

Mindful Eating

Mindful Eating

If you’re like most people, Christmas and New Year has been a bit of an over eating fest, and that’s totally okay to indulge every now and then, we have to live life and it’s definitely the time of year to enjoy!  However now we are getting back into the swing of the new year, it’s a great time to begin focusing on being mindful with the body, nurturing it, not only in what you eat, but how you eat.  

I invite you to slow down and give this mindful eating exercise a go.

Where Our Attention Goes, Energy Flows

Where Our Attention Goes, Energy Flows

"The grass is greener where you water it."... I came across this saying earlier this month and have found myself wheeling it out on many occasions since, and it's given me much food for thought. 

For me it represents that where we put our attention and our focus, that is where our energy flows, so that can either be on the present and what we have in our lives right now, or directing it elsewhere, outside of ourselves; wondering if something could be different if we were in new circumstances, perhaps a new job, a new city or a fresh relationship. 

Would we be happier and feel more fulfilled?  When we reach that next destination, are we really going to be more satisfied?

Three Elements Of Self Compassion

Three Elements Of Self Compassion

Why is it easier to be compassionate to our friends or a loved when they're going through rough times, than it is to ourselves?

When things go wrong we have a tendency to be harsh, speak badly to ourselves, and get our minds in recurring thought patterns which can take us down the rabbit hole of self doubt, affecting our self worth, and even our health. 

Self compassion is a powerful way of improving our wellbeing.  It's scientifically linked to being happier, more satisfied, grateful and optimistic; while simultaneously reducing the negative, contributing to less anxiety, depression, stress and over perfectionism.

Reducing Stress In The Modern World

Reducing Stress In The Modern World

Ever feel like you have too many balls in the air, tasks on the go, or just too much load to carry?  In our modern lifestyles I don't know anyone who is immune to the pressures we all face, trying to juggle work, family, plus just time for your own self care, it's exhausting just thinking about it all sometimes!  

Stress has become a chronic condition in our lives, and the UN has gone as far as calling it the 21st century health epidemic.  80-90% of diseases are stress related, and it's a factor in nearly 5 of 6 deaths, yet we continue on with our busy lives, not really paying heed to warning signals.
