How Is Your Motivation?

Hi. I hope you are doing well. 

We all set ourselves challenges, and goals, but once the initial excitement of working towards these goals wears off, how do we stay motivated?

  1. Make sure the goals that you have set are the right ones. If you aren’t sure it is the right goal, of course, your motivation will dip. 
  2. Be careful about the way you talk to yourself. Don’t talk to yourself in a way that degrades you. Talk to yourself using powerful statements and affirmations that motivate you. 
  3. Remember your why. Why are you doing this? Why do you want this? Why is this your goal?

I would love to hear how your motivation is going this year, so do comment on this post.

All The Best,

November Update

Hi there! I hope you are well.

November has been a busy month for me. I moved into my new flat which was exciting. It is nice to be able to have my own space again. I am feeling settled and like it is a home now.

I have worked a lot this month but we need all the money we can get for Christmas, especially with the cost of living crisis. Working in London, I am loving seeing all the Christmas decorations up. They are so beautiful.

I had an article published in Disgraceful magazine so that was absolutely brilliant. I wrote an article titled “How do I become more positive?” I love writing so. couldn’t be prouder of that.

Another exciting thing I did this month was that I did a photo shoot for NOBS App. That is Lucy Mountains app where she has home workouts, gym workouts/ guides and recipes it is a great space for your health and wellness. I took part with 2 other amazing models and we shot the gym imagery. It was so much fun and I am glad I took part in that.

I visited Battersea Power Station for the first time since it has opened to the public. They have a great variety of shops and food.

From there I took a walk to Southbank where I looked at the Christmas markets and started to get myself into the festive spirit.

I think it is fair to say that November has been a month of stepping out of my comfort zone but it was full of so much fun. Bring on December for more festivities and let us make the last month of 2022 a great one.

All The Best,

Normalise Normal Eating

As a foodie, I want to ask you, what behaviours are you looking to normalise?

The diet culture has created a set of conditions that tell us what health is, such as eating certain foods, or eliminating bad foods from or diet and rules that tell us when we can and can’t eat, along with how much food we can eat.

How do we overcome this? The key is to eat normally.

If you want that second breakfast, have it. If you want carbs with every meal, do it. If you want a dessert go for it and if you want a snack before bed, it is okay.

Eat in a way that makes you feel good and without guilt. There is no right way to eat.

All The Best,

This Feeling Won’t Last Forever

Happy Sunday.

I just want to give you a reminder that nothing is permanent and that includes how you are feeling right now.

When we are struggling, it can feel like it will last forever and our minds cannot see any way out of this feeling and that there is nothing good.

Remember, things always change and that includes how we feel.

Acknowledge how you feel, take care of yourself and don’t ignore it.

It will get better and you won’t always feel like this.

All The Best,

We Are Slaves Of Our Own Emotions

I want to touch upon emotions. Something that I came across recently was the saying ‘the happy side of neutral.’ This is telling us that our life isn’t spent experiencing heightened emotions and rather the chasing a state of happiness as this is actually impossible, we should aim for the happier side of our most neutral state. 

The next question is how do we do this? Through gratitude. 

As humans we always look for the negative emotion to protect us and it is more natural for us to feed emotions such as anger or sadness.

When it comes to emotions such as happiness or joy we experience these in a fleeting moment and then return to a neutral state. 

If we want to give our happy moments more length in time, we need to be grateful and appreciate things. Write down a list of 3 things that you are grateful for each day and be more present in the activities that you do. 

I hope that this has given you inspiration for practice being grateful. It honestly works, mindfulness all the way. 

All The Best,

Feel Good Friday

Happy Friday. Instead of my Friday favourites, I am coming to you with a feel good friday, all the things that have a positive impact on my mental wellbeing. 

  1. Listening to my body. Being aware of when I need to simply rest and recharge. 
  2. Enforcing my boundaries. This is a big thing for mental wellness. Saying no. It doesn’t matter whether that is saying no to plans or not picking up that extra shift. 
  3. Turning off my notifications on my phone and not feeling pressured to respond to people. 
  4. Eating well and staying hydrated. I notice the impact on my mind and body, feeling sluggish and overwhelmed when I don’t nourish my body. 
  5. Removing negativity. This can be having a clean out of my social media feed from the things that don’t make me feel good or even distancing myself from negative relationships and people. 

Investing in your mental well being really costs nothing. So, my question to you is what will you do to help your mental health?

All The Best,

That Weekend Feeling

Happy Saturday. Here are some reminders for you to take into this weekend.

  1. Eat the good food and don’t feel guilty. Food is to be enjoyed.
  2. If you want to switch off for a bit, you can do this. Don’t let anyone make you feel guilty for pleasing yourself and not replying. You only need to answer to yourself.
  3. If you aren’t feeling up to doing something, it is okay to cancel your plans. Don’t put pressure on yourself to do something. Prioritise your self-care.
  4. Be kind to people. Not everyone may be able to enjoy the weekend.

What other things can we take into the weekend to ensure we have a great one?

All The Best,

Invest In Your Happiness

The weather this week hasn’t been the best and it really puts a downer on things.

If you are feeling a bit stuck and need something to help you feel happier, here are a few things that you can do. 

At the end of each day, take your time to reflect. Upon reflecting, write down 3 good things that happened to you on that day. It can be something as small as getting a coffee. Whatever made you feel good that day, write it down. 

Once you do this for the week, see how that makes you feel. Don’t ignore your feelings or struggles, but recognise that there are also good things in your life. 

All The Best,

May Update

How are we at the end of May! Time just keeps on flying buy!

I have had the holiday blues since coming back from Italy at the end of last month for the 30th and I still can’t seem to shake it. It probably means that something needs to change aka moving abroad. That is still something I would love to do. 

Anyway, back to May. 

May for me has been full of football. Being a Chelsea season ticket holder, I think almost every weekend in May has been football. We played in the FA Cup final against Liverpool at Wembley, sadly we lost on penalties. Despite the score and frustration I had a good day out with friends. I will miss my weekends at the football. I also hope this situation with our takeover gets sorted soon.

May has also been a time to reconnect. I have seen family that I haven’t in years and even met some for the first time. It was truly warming to see them and I am glad to be back in touch with them. Family is where life begins and love never ends. 

Other than the above there hasn’t been too much else happening. It has been a relatively quiet month in terms of events and travel.

I am ready to work on my goals for June for my business and personally too, but before that, let us all enjoy a long bank holiday for the jubilee weekend!

All The Best,
