Mediation keeps me sane. Over the years, my practice has changed in its frequency and consistency. At the beginning, 14 years ago, I found it so challenging and hellish. It felt as though a million thoughts and emotions were swarming inside of me. Then little by little something subsided and eased. Nowadays I can still find myself amidst inner turbulence when I sit mindfully but I know that that’s totally OK. Letting be and observing. Grateful for its simplicity and to be able to share this within my work. When I am not able to meditate at home, I practice wherever I can. Over the years I’ve meditated in the most random of places. Here’s a few: toilets, public transport, shopping centers, studios, bedrooms, cars, mountain tops, the beach, forests churches, supermarkets. What about you? Where do you meditate? .

Great weekend with my parents in town. Got in my longest run since my ankle injury -- 7.69 miles with my pops Saturday morning 🙌🏻🏃🏼♂️
My mum used to tell me this all the time when I was younger. At the time she meant it about eating well, but the meaning goes so much further.
Yes, we must fuel our bodies with the right foods but we must do so much more.
Exercising our minds and bodies, in equal measure to allowing them to rest is vital.
Self care is so important when you are trying to do and achieve so much.
How are you looking after yourself today? X
Love this for some Monday morning motivation - taking a moment or two to breathe can feel like a small action, but it gives your mind a chance to stop, recalibrate and reflect. What are you thinking about in your moment? #mondaymotivation #mindfulness #brainfood #thoughtfulquotes
Blessings for a beauty Monday and amazing week dear ones! It’s wet here today and the cold snap has the leaves changing and falling. We see the metaphors for our existence all around us. But, we’re often so rushed, we don’t pay attention. Perhaps you can take a few more minutes at lunch today and sit down to eat. Savor the bites. Think about when you reach ‘full.’ Hear the sounds of life around you and the Voice within you. That’s your truest Self. It’s trying to guide you... pause and allow it. It’s not always easy. That’s why I suggested at lunch. See if you can hear your body say “I’m hungry” and then “Okay, that’s good.” That’s all. A simple process of awareness. If slowing down for a feeding of your body, mind and spirit. A reconnection to You. Try it with your tea or coffee, a walk, loved ones. Awareness. Presence. The fullness of life. Today, really paying attention, I realized I was doing about 1/2 of my @welleco
super elixir amount...who knows how long I’ve been shortchanging myself of stellar nutrients because I was on “rote”? Take 5 to allow ourselves to see, Be. Diffusing Clarity, Sacred Mountain, Egyptian Gold and Balance.

Que el amor que sientes por ti mismo hoy sea tan profundo, tan amoroso, tan compasivo, tan abierto, tan inspirador, tan aceptado, que lo único que atraigas a tu vida sea ese mismo amor que te das. Que tu vida se vuelva cada día más liviana, más soñada, más alineada con las estrellas y que tu luz brille y tu aura se expanda. Que recuerdes en cada momento que estás completo, que no te falta nada, y que lo único real es el amor.
Desde el fondo de mi corazón te deseo no solo 1 día de amor sino una vida entera vibrando alto en la energía de tu máxima expresión.

Today’s card and 3 lovely crystals are so in tune with each other 😍
There’s a definite theme of calm, balance and reflection...
Can I encourage you all at some point today to take a few moments to practice some mindfulness or meditation today 😘
This can be as simple as resting your eyes for a few moments and just concentrating on your own breathing...do a body scan from your toes to the top of your head... feel the floor under your feet, the chair touching the backs of your legs and bottom, your back resting against it... rest your hand on you tummy and feel it rise and fall with each breath... be still and pay attention only to your breath for just a minute or two... how does the material of your clothes feel against your skin, can you feel your hair touching you neck or shoulders... and so on. Concentrate only on ‘the now’
This is a very simple way to sit in a mindful way for a few moments 💗
Have a peaceful day 🙏🏻💗

Literally so true. 💯
All of us have 24 hours in a day but it’s up to you on how you spend that time.
There is so much that can get done in a day.
Have goals. Set them. Take the necessary daily consistent action to get you there. Wake up 15 minutes earlier. Go to bed 15 minutes later. Do a little extra during your lunch break. Listen to that podcast during your commute. Carve out extra time to do something for you.
Just don’t say you don’t have any time because you can create it. And if time freedom is a dream of yours then you better believe you can create that. Invest in yourself and take a chance on you! ⭐️

B L ❄ G G E D | Dear Diary, I Want To Be a Life Coach. A few weeks ago I slapped "Coach" into my bio without much, if any introduction. In this piece I talk about the moment that I decided coaching was something I wanted to do and what I've been up to around it! • Trying new/foreign career paths can absolutely be daunting, especially if all you have to go off of is "it feels like it would be a good fit to me". If you are not happy with your current career path, if you dread waking up and going to work each morning, if each day is more painful than the last MAKE A CHANGE. Sometimes all it takes is a feeling to guide us into something truly remarkable. And guess what, if its a detour, take some notes and try something new. I would much rather trip and fall in this uphill battle than wonder what could have been 💓
Monday mornings...often full of apprehension and thoughts of a weekend gone all too fast!
Preoccupation with the future or the past can play havoc on our thoughts and emotions, often leaving us feeling totally out of control!
What can I do right now? How can I contribute? Such questions can effectively anchor us in the present.
The past is gone, cherish the memories and express gratitude, the future is undecided and is almost entirely dependant on what you do and how you do, NOW.

Mindfulness Meditation is about cultivating steadiness, stability, and clarity by placing your attention on your breath. Your breath is always “right now” so it brings you back to the present moment again and again.

Getting the protein in, I think I eat about 10 tins of tuna I week right now... that’s £500/yr 🤔@john.west.nl
let’s make a deal! Part- Sponsor my page In return for tuna 😁😁😁. You know it makes sense #letsgochamp
LET’S TALK: SOCIAL ANXIETY 😓.
Who ready for some #REALTALK
? OK, so rewind a few years. I used to be a social butterfly. There was not a party that I would miss, and every party I went to, I was known as the “life of the party”. I loved drinking and I would always be the most intoxicated, which made me “fun” 😐.
Let’s fast forward to now. I don’t drink, I don’t go out (except for the 200 concerts I attend every year) and some days I struggle to leave the four walls of my bedroom. Everybody meet: SOCIAL ANXIETY! .
Why am I sharing this story with you? Because I want you to know that you’re not alone.
WHO HAVE I BECOME?. .
1️⃣. I worry about people’s reactions.
2️⃣. I feel paranoid, judged, and insecure about everything I say and do in social situations.
3️⃣. I avoid social situations.
4️⃣. I dwell on awkward moments.
That was hard to even type! But I want to share a few ways of trying to overcome these crippling feelings!
🧠. SHARE!! Hiding or suppressing anxiety actually produces more anxiety. The most useful step is to share your experience with friends and family, or even talk about them online.
🧠. BREATHE!! Your body is powerful. Learning the warning signs of when your anxiety flares up is important to help you take action. Try some breathing exercises..
🧠. FACE YOUR FEARS!! Avoiding social situations, yes will make you feel better at that particular moment, but this is only a short term solution (eek). Remember, saying no will give you the same result each time. Saying yes, however frightening, means you’re taking a chance and living your life.
🧠. STOP TRYING TO BE PERFECT!! It’s easy to forget that no one is perfect when we live in a world that aspires to achieve perfection. It’s also easy to forget that not everyone will like us nor does everyone need to. Ask yourself do YOU like everyone? It’s also often forgotten that it’s okay to make mistakes as it makes.
🧠. FIND YOUR SAFE PERSON!! I find that having my sister with me makes it easier for me to face scary situations. Take baby steps with this person.
‼️: Lets try to stop this from defining us! DM me if you need to chat! .
Happy Monday beauties x Monique
It may be rough right now but if you don’t stop you can make it to where you want to be. Learn from the bad, the mistakes and become who you were meant to be.
