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. (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….

It is time for you to speak your truth.

It is time for you to speak your truth.

Today I want to encourage you to speak your truth.

Maybe that means you looking in the mirror tonight and admitting to yourself what you are most scared of or worried about right now….

Perhaps it involves you having a heart-to-heart with a loved one or a colleague about something that is weighing heavy on your heart….

Is it time to start The Work?

Is it time to start The Work?

Maybe you can relate to this…

Last week started out so well. And then it got ugly. Pretty fast.

I had super productive Monday! I was up at 6AM, hot yoga, meditation, reading and journaling were all in the bag by 8AM.

Then I was at my desk like a productivity ninja and by lunch my to-do list didn't know what had hit him. A great coaching session with a new client and a drink with my dear neighbour Phil later and I was on cloud nine...

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...

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 Belief

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

Self Belief is about believing in yourself, your plans and your abilities, regardless of what the world thinks, says or throws your way. It’s about trusting in yourself and your potential, through successes AND failures.  It's not the same as confidence, which is often seen as how we show up to the outside world. Self Belief is internal and all about your relationship with You...

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?
