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,

Ego And Identity

Happy Friday. I hope you have had a good week so far.

We all have that voice in our head that starts with Me, You and I. It is the voice that goes on and on. It constantly overthinks everything.

That voice, we often then use that to label us as a person. We constantly worry about or life and what it has to tell us, and that voice, we simply want to avoid.

What we need to remember is that voice isn’t us.

That voice attaches itself to our ego. If we are identified with this ego, we can’t live a free and calm life as it is negative and causes us fear. What we do need to do is be aware of this voice, but don’t let it consume us.

The rest will happen naturally.

All The Best,

Your Trauma Is Valid

Many of us have faced trauma or something that has hurt us a lot, and this can show up in our relationships through a variety of ways.

We go through the flight, fight, freeze and fawn response. All of these are here to protect us.

When we are in the fight, we might shout, or become aggressive during moments of conflict. We might feel threatened and even resort to insults or threats.

When in the flight mode, we might overthink frequently and struggle to stay in the present moment.

When in the freeze response, you might find it hard to make choices, give up quickly and even put off doing things.

If you are in the fawn state, you may resort to putting other people’s needs before you and even maybe agreeing with what others say even when you may disagree.

Have you ever experienced this? What other ways do you feel trauma can show up in relationships?

Change The Narrative

Happy Wednesday. I hope that your week is going well so far.

Something that we can all relate to is not wanting to go to certain places because there are memories that are attached to them.

These might be places, where someone was rude to you, a place where you were hurt or hurt yourself, a place that you feel weak and hopeless, a place that makes you scared to revisit.

I have some of these places too. Places that I have avoided because they cause me stress and anxiety, however what I have learnt to do is to re-write the narrative, and not hide from these places.

If you want to take back the narrative, do the following:

  1. Laugh at the place where you cried
  2. Scream and shout out loud, at the place where you felt unheard
  3. Grow where they made you feel small

You don’t need to hide from the places, create a safe space in your head and around you. Remember, you are strong.

All The Best,

Past Trauma Triggers

Hi There.

I hope that you had a good weekend. I certainly enjoyed it, although the weekend really goes too fast.

Everyone has gone through things in their past, so I want to go through a few signs to look out for when someone’s past trauma has been triggered.

  1. Zoning out
  2. Not making eye contact
  3. Wanting to be alone
  4. Avoiding contact with people
  5. Going silent
  6. Struggling to focus and breathe
  7. A general feeling of being unsafe

If you notice anyone feeling like this, be patient, kind and offer them a safe space.

All The Best,

Gratitude Is The Best Attitude

Happy Friday!

I hope you have had a great week so far!

Today, I want to take about the effect that gratitude has on our mental health and why we should practice it.

  1. It helps us to release our hormones dopamine and serotonin. The feel good hormones.
  2. It can help us sleep better.
  3. It allows us to focus on the things that really matter.
  4. It helps us to regulate or nervous system.
  5. It allows us to feel safe within ourselves.

What 3 things are you grateful for today?

Anxiety Reducing Tips

Hi There.

I hope you are well.

As someone who suffers from anxiety, I want to share some of my practices and habits that I have got into that help to reduce anxiety.

  1. Journal. I write down my fears and reframe them into something positive.
  2. I am kind to myself during moments of anxiety. I am strong.
  3. I take a walk in nature, that helps me to stay calm.
  4. See those people that bring out the best in you and make you smile.
  5. Do the things that I enjoy.

By getting into good habits, it helps you to unlearn and unstick those habits that trigger your anxiety.

What other good habits can you practice?

Life Is Too Short

Hi, Happy Monday.

How was your weekend?

Many things have got me thinking, but the one thing that springs to mind is that life is too short for us to get stuck in the things that drain our energy.

Life is too short to:

Not feel valued. Surround yourself with people that encourage you to be your best self.

Not believe you are good enough. You are good enough. Ignore other people’s opinions.

Not love yourself. Learn to love being yourself and life will be lighter and you will be happier.

Not take action. You know you are capable, so go for what you deserve.

What else is life too short for you not to do?

All The Best,

Take Care

Hi There.

I hope you are having a good week so far.

I want to talk a bit about self-care when you may be feeling low.

When you are feeling depressed you lose the hope and you don’t believe that you are worthy of being taken care off. Things such as showering, putting on clean clothes, eating healthy food, exercising or even brushing your teeth feels like a mission.

If you don’t see a better tomorrow, why would you end up taking care of yourself today?

We give ourselves so much grief on our bad days and this can cause us to sink into a deeper hole of hopelessness.

When you do find yourself in those moments, as difficult as it may be, show yourself love and kindness. Brighter and happier days are just around the corner.

All The Best,

What? Where?

Where are you going?

What do you want?

Everyday we get up and move. Everything that we do each day takes us on a journey that drinks us closer to our true selves and closer to becoming the best version of ourselves.

Knowing what we want and the type of person we want to be, knowing and beliefs and values are all part of this journey.

Whatever your goal is, it can be done. Your dreams can become a reality and your fears can be overcome.

The world has enough room for you to be happy and successful. Go get it.

All The Best,
