“IT DEPENDS ON WHAT YOUR ALL IS?”

Your Wellness Toolbox 2021Day 31 / 365 This week someone said to me “You are like superwoman, how do you do it all? ....I wish I could manage it all like you do!!” My answer - “It depends on what your all is?” A few weeks ago I was drowning in my own all.The list of all I had created. The list of expectations I had set myself. The list of all and expectations that are often driven by fear of judgment, limiting beliefs and our perception of how everyone else is doing it. My list of all resulted in me feeling under pressure, stressed, overwhelmed and frustrated. Resulting in me not giving my all. So, I dramatically changed my...

SNOW WAY IT’S A SNOW DAY!!!

Snow way... here in Solihull for many schools it’s a snow day for safety reasons... and I know one of the local primary schools has issued a letter to parents and carers advising that remote learning is available yet also highlighting the rareity of a snow day and that if they make the choice not to access the learning then they hope the kids have a fun day making snow memories. For many households right now I think this letter would be a welcome relief and the suggestion will be grabbed with both gloves. When we take away the pressure and inject some fun it can be good for the whole family. It’s a snow homeschooling kinda day! What guidance...

TOOL #11 AFFIRMATIONS CAN HELP YOU BE MORE PRESENT

YOUR WELLNESS TOOLBOX 2021DAY 19 / 365 Tool #11 in My Wellness Toolbox is Affirmations. Last night I had the pleasure to work with a lovely Reiki client. It was her second distance session and already she is reporting some amazing benefits on both her physical and mental health. During every Reiki session I randomly pull out an affirmation card from my beautiful set of cards. They are always so apt for my client. The same card was pulled during both her sessions. So at the end of her session I quickly created this image for her to save on her phone. Then it’s there every day to remind her... and repeat, repeat, repeat. I think this affirmation could help...

TOOL #26 YOU - CELEBRATE YOU

    YOUR WELLNESS TOOLBOX 2021 DAY 15 / 365  FRIDAY FEELS LIKE CELEBRATING YOUR WINS Right now many of us feel like we are walking through treacle... or is it quicksand?! I shared earlier this week I am finding this lockdown tougher than any of the others. When things seem or are tough we can often focus on the things we are not doing, the things we haven’t done and this can lead to self sabotage and beating ourselves up. So today I want to encourage you to avoid that and to focus on YOUR WINS THIS WEEK. Regardless of what you think there will be some... Here are 3 of mine... 💫 I have not drank alcohol for...
