Support yourself this year

Support yourself this year

We are now 20 days into the New Year and so over halfway through the first month of 2019 - how is it going for you so far?

I don't know about you but I've only had ten days 'back at work' and if I am honest, I am already bone tired. Like my bones have told me they are actually tired!

It's almost as if I didn't have two full weeks off over the festive period lazing about, eating whatever was in front of me (often ignoring my allergies) and doing next to no exercise....

Choose yourself πŸ’—

Choose yourself πŸ’—

Choose yourself. (This was shared via the Less Ordinary newsletter on 24th December 2018) 

It's Christmas Eve. Whether or not you are participating in all the festivities that accompany this time of year, December can be very challenging. 

Its not all joy and cheer and peace and happy-clappy family time (though social media might have you thinking differently - remember on here are the best highlights - the outtakes and bloopers rarely make the cut!) β€¦

It's ok to ask for help.

It's ok to ask for help.

I am at the tail end of what has been quite a mean chest infection. It crept up on me after the fabulous Celebrate Life party (our Less Ordinary annual alternative to the company xmas do!) last Tuesday. I ignored it for a bit and then BAM last Thursday morning, after one too many late nights, it hit me square in my chest. As an asthmatic, this is never fun….

You are always in the process of becoming

You are always in the process of becoming

So who are you?

How many of us really think before answering this?

Many of us give the name that was given to us from birth. Maybe you give the name of what you do for a living. 

But who are you deeply? What are you made up of? What are your core values?

What are those individual qualities within you that show the world who you really are? 

Do you even show the world? Or do you feel the need to hide your true self away?

Heads, shoulders, knees and toes!

Heads, shoulders, knees and toes!

There was a simple, fun game that I remember playing as a young child called: β€˜Head, shoulders, knees and toes’. You’d sing the words and as you did you’d tap the body part you were singing about at exactly the same time. Eventually the song would pick up pace and you would be β€˜out’ as soon as you fell out of line with the singing or the body taps. The last person β€˜in’ would win...

Where's Your Head At?

Where's Your Head At?

The days are growing brighter, flowers are in bloom. But you might not be.

You might be feeling fatigue? You may have reduced interest and enjoyment in activities? Or reduced ability and difficulty concentrating? Or you might have alterations in eating or sleep patterns?

Sometimes you may not feel able to show up. You may not feel capable of being presentable. You may have days that you feel so low that you don’t even want to exit your bed. I’m not talking about a Monday morning here. After the weekend a lot of us would prefer to snuggle up under the covers! I’m talking about a deeper sadness.

Why you need to start sharing your goodness with the world (even if it scares you)

Why you need to start sharing your goodness with the world (even if it scares you)

Yesterday evening on my way home, I bumped into a gorgeous woman I used to play Netball with five years ago. She was excited to see me and her power hug and beaming smile took me quite by surprise (I was pretty crap at Netball!). Anyway she proceeded to tell me that my old team are now top of their league (go Kaizen!!) after five years of hard work and not giving up...

The A, B, C of Self Love : Self Care

The A, B, C of Self Love : Self Care

This is where we roll up our sleeves and get practical! You are likely to know what you need to do on a day-to-day basis to take better care of yourself. But you are unlikely to do it all. And even worse, we are all guilty of doing things that we know are bad for us. So let’s address this bad boy challenge first off with two questions...

The A, B, C of Self Love : Self Acceptance

The A, B, C of Self Love : Self Acceptance

Today I would like to share with you the first element of the β€˜The A, B, C of Self Love’. I created this model to enable more open, exploratory discussions about Self Love.

Once you begin exploring what Self Love is & isn’t, you realise it's importance. But once you realise how key it is, how do you go about manifesting more Self Love in your life?
