🤒 So, I've been ill! 😷 🤧 Like, going to bed and resting ill 😴 🛌 ⠀ And I've been quiet - not just because I lost my voice! 🐸 ⠀ And it's been interesting.⠀ I've known for years that a couple of days resting means that I recover faster, and I've been pretty good at doing that. At this time of year, my life used to be so precision planned - every minute of every day accounted for, that I couldn't afford the downtime. My overscheduled life would fall like dominoes.⠀ This time it's been very different. Firstly, I haven't been ill all year. And then, without really thinking about it, I just allowed myself the downtime I needed to feel better and I re-prioritised. Some stuff didn't get done - I haven't posted here in over a week, I didn't take my son swimming last weekend, my Christmas cards aren't written yet - but the important things did get done. And I got better. But most significant of all, I stayed calm and didn't stress about what I couldn't do. I love how life gives you lessons all the time when your head is quiet enough to listen.⠀ ⠀ #overthinking #quietenthemind #prioritiseyou #getstuffdone #getbacktotherealyou #lifecoaching #3principles #calm #listentoyourbody #wellbeing #wellness #happinessisaninsidejob

Spend time with yourself so you can get to know what fills you up, what nourishes your spirit. Yesterday I was back home from Ikea ( I went like 15 times in the last two months so I was so happy it was the last trip) and instead of jumping on my to-do at home, I had an idea followed by a sparkle of excitement, I can go do something fun 😀 The sun was up for the first day in ages and I couldn’t miss it. So I did some of my favourite things : ✨ Go to a pretty park and walk in nature. I went to Tuileries which is not my favourite but really felt called to it ✨I looked at some pretty bookshops. The Galignani is superb if you have never been ✨ Got myself tea and read a new book in the WHSmith tearoom. I started a book called “First we make the beast beautiful” by @_sarahwilson_ on the topic of anxiety, which is something I’ve experienced this summer more than ever before and want to learn more about it. ✨ I also got some herbal remedies from the Erboristerie du Palais Royal, an old and pretty herbal shop that’s worth a visit Note to self ✍️: do it more often ! What would you do if you had a spontaneous afternoon to indulge in things you love 💕? Definitely allow yourself to do it ! . . . . . . . . . #soulcare #selfcare #soulnurturing #rituals #soulspace #selflovetime #metime #slowlivingforlife #liveauthentic #purposefulliving #sacredspace #prioritiseyou #embracingtheseasonsathome #simpleliving #slowautumndays #daysofsmallthings #upandautumn #seeksimplicity #makeitblissful #beautyyouseek #savourtheseasonalshift #clarityfirst #bookclub #booklove #booksforwomen #taketimeforyou #timeout
Note to self - Say yes to me!⠀ .⠀ Something we often hear from our clients is, "I don't want to do/ go to/ see ..., but I feel I should/ have to..."⠀ .⠀ And we're hearing it a whole lot more as we're hitting the festive season!⠀ .⠀ We like to ask...⠀ 🤚why do you 'have to'?⠀ 🤚how does it benefit you?⠀ 🤚how does it benefit them?⠀ 🤚what would happen if you didn't go to... / do...?⠀ 🤚what would REALLY happen?⠀ 🤚can you go another time?⠀ .⠀ So, next time you catch yourself in this situation, ask yourself these questions and hopefully, you can say yes to you instead.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #sayyestoyou#prioritiseyou#willtheskyfall#achievementunlocked#betterhealth#bodypositivity#bodytransformations#changeyourthoughts#eatgoodfeelgood#eatsmart#fitnessandhealth#goodhabits#healthgoals#healthjourney#lessstress#livewithpurpose#loveyourcurves#mindsetiseverything#moreenergy#notadiet#strongbody#strongmind#valueyourself#weightlosscommunity #weightlossinspiration #weightlossprogram #weightlossprogress#weightlosssupport #weightmaintenance #weightmanagement

No two of my treatments are ever the same, why? Because no two of my clients are the same. Every single person that comes through my door is unique; they have their own reasons for coming along and their own ideas of what they'd like to get out of the session. When you come along to The Wellbeing Nest my intention for you is simple. I want you to step into space that offers you respite from every day life, a space dedicated purely to you and your wellbeing. I want you to feel able to put your worries, stresses and responsibilities down and I want to deliver a treatment tailored to nourish and serve you, your wellbeing and your individual needs. This is one of the reasons that you are greeted with a cup of herbal tea when you arrive and why I always take the time to talk to you properly. I'll always ask you how you are, what's going on and what you're looking to get from the session. I do this so I can create and deliver a treatment that's designed specifically for you, to leave you feeling nourished, calm and content. . . . . . . . . . #smallbusiness #smallbiz #smallbusinesslove #femalebosslife #femaleentrepeneur #smallbizuk #communityovercompetition #authenticbusiness #mumboss #bossbabe #girlboss #womeninbusiness #entrepreneurlife #ladyboss #femaleentrepreneur #womeninbiz   #womenempowerment #goaldigger #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneurialmindset #calledtocreate #createyourhappy #womenwhodo #dreamersanddoers #spiritualbusiness #prioritiseyou #loveyourself #selfcare #healingjourney #selfcareisntselfish

Creativity will save the world, because that’s what will take us back to our hearts, to our intuition, to that state of flow and joy so much more than stay stuck in our mental fears. We need to develop more emotional intelligence, that makes us feel connected to each other’s and ourselves.

Many people are busy all the time. All year round, 24/7. But it's December, so many people find that "busy" ramps up another notch! . Remember that thing called self-care? Taking time out for yourself? Slowing down? Taking the night off? Doing nothing (without feeling guilty)? . Some people find it hard not to be busy. It's as though spending time alone with their brain is too uncomfortable or distressing. . Yes, you could do more. But can you do less? . Struggling with mental health difficulties?

Do you prioritise the ones you love and the experiences you want in your life?..... . If the answer is no, I was the same. 😞 . Work came first and my desires and dreams were way down the bottom of the list! . Make you, your priority on this year's Christmas list! 🎅 . My dream was to spend time with the ones I love while travelling the World! . Life is for Amazing friends and Awesome Adventures? 🙌 . Do you agree?... . I'd love to know where you would go and why? .

An important reminder. . Struggling with mental health difficulties? Contact us at Act with Purpose Psychology in Brunswick on (03) 8595 3047 or at info@actwithpurpose.com.au
💗 NOURISH the body+mind . 💗 ⠀ ⠀ Take yourself through the necessary motions to cleanse and recouperate as required 💦⠀ ⠀ Respect yourself FIRST. ⠀ ⠀ Honour your energetic boundaries..⠀ ⠀ Your internal well will efficiently flourish for it . 🙏⠀ ⠀ The past week has held space for some incredibly cleansing rituals; amidst the weeks’ adventures - travelling all around the city daily with work and other commitments - making space for dance, nature immersion and other embodiment practices needn’t take a back seat at all. ⠀ ⠀ With just a little more creative weaving than usual.. there’s always a way, and it’s always worth it. ⠀ ⠀ Leave home a little earlier and fit in that refreshing yoga practice.. Take that longer walking route home to wander and meditate mindfully.. Perhaps pop into that casual dance/yoga/fitness class you’ve been eyeing off for months.. or treat yourself to that deeper workshop immersion that has your whole body feeling reactivated, realigned and ready to receive 💗😌💗⠀ ⠀ Take this as a sign, or a little reminder to TRUST that you ARE worth the time and energy to give BACK to yourself. Sometimes the only thing in the way is your own internal resistance to feeling good, or even BETTER within your whole being. Interesting one, isn’t it! . . Instead, allow the goodness to infiltrate your entire internal landscape. . . Re-Commit to YOU and FEEL the benefits flow in as you continue to ALLOW them the space in your life. However it works best for you 💕⠀ . . 🌊 Exploring “Bronte’s Backyard” mini jungle walk was a blast.. bathing in the pools at dusk even more refreshing - with rightful chillz up the spine to conclude ! 💦⠀ . . . . . . #selflove #selfcare #selfworthmovement #naturelovers #cleansing #takingastand #youreworthit #prioritiseyou #embody #breathe #embodimentrituals #wellness #mindbodysoul #mindbodyspirit #restorebalance #givebacktoyourself #sunset #sunsetporn #dusk #ocean #oceanlove #waterbaby #wellnesswednesday #wellnessthatworks .

Self-care is essential all year round, but December is often the month where life is so busy and self-care may be difficult to "fit in". December is the month where self-care is essential. Make your self-care a PRIORITY. Put it on your to-do list. . Struggling with mental health difficulties?

I forget this often.. very often but I hope this can be a reminder to others. Prioritising yourself isn't selfish, it's important! Don't forget about yourself whilst remembering everyone else.. don't do everything for everyone else and nothing for yourself! Find the balance that you are comfortable with and put yourself first more often. You deserve it and you are worth it! #anxiety #anxietyrelief #youvegotthis #putyourselffirst #prioritiseyou #findyourbalance #AnxLife
Are you taking the time to make you a priority? Or are you playing martyr? Life’s a choice, you choose what role to play. Choose something different. ⭐️⭐️⭐️#choices #makingyoumatter #prioritiseyou #selfdiscovery #rediscoveryou #radicalradiance #soulmission #heartcentred #manifestationbabe #reclaimthehappy #pinkflashesofdelight #highvibration #lifeonpurpose #findingyourfearless #centred #freedombusiness #borntoshinebook #shineonsister
And the best way I’ve found to do this is to look at how you start your day! Set boundaries around your first waking hour and cut all devices. Start your day with YOURSELF for yourself before the world and the noise sets in. Take the time to do one (or bonus point for multiple!) thing/s for you, even if it’s just a few deeps breath followed by noting down your intentions for how you want to feel and show up in the day ahead. Then go forth, conquer and just feel the difference in how your day rolls. When I start my day like this I’m always more calm, intentional and on purpose instead of anxious, overwhelmed and frantic. Do what you can to start your day in your best state so that you can in turn, give your best to the world ✨ #morning #morningritual #techtox #theworldcanwait #prioritiseyou
For all the merriment and joy Christmas brings it can also be an incredibly stressful time. If you are feeling overwhelmed aleady then a top tip shared by @kellyprojectme during her Seasonal Sanity Saver workshop on Friday was that "done is better than perfect." 👍 So what if your wrapping paper isn't coorindated, if your kids outfits for the Christmas play aren't homemade or if you end up giving your brother-in-law socks again! December shouldn't automatically mean you lose your head in a spin. It's a time for you to relax and have fun too! Pinpoint your priorities, cut yourself some slack and embrace the notion of being perfectly imperfect! 🌲🎁🍾 . . . #sanitysavers #christmascountdown #lifeadmin #mentalload #christmasplanning #keepcalm #doneisbetterthanperfect #imperfectlyperfect #perfectdoesntexist #youcantdoitall #prioritise #modernmotherhood #mumlife #christmasstress #mamasgotthis #prioritiseyou #relaxandhavefun
What are you doing that is adding no value to your life? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Consciously and intentionally try to eliminate the things that bring you no joy 🙅🏽‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Free up that time, energy and maybe money to focus on things that build you up, make you happier, increase the quality of your life! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #selfhelp #personaldevelopment #mumoftwo #levelup #mumofboys #qualityoverquantity #mentalhealth #fitnessmatters #prioritiseyou #selfimprovement
This week has been tricky week for many reasons! Mostly busy mum stuff and not feeling like I have time to focus on what I need to do I just made time for a quick 5k before it was too dark! I cannot tell you how much better it makes me feel! Anxiety in check, stress levels feeling better and feeling more able to get through the next few hours! If I have learnt anything in the last few months it’s that I matter and that if I sort myself out I’m much calmer and able to cope with kids and life in general! For me running is like taking an antidepressant... I know if I have not run for a few days and I need to prioritise it like I would taking meds! I’m so much more effective if I keep it in check! For me running is an essential part of my weekly routine #healthybodyhealthymind #youmatter #mummatterstoo #prioritiseyou #runningtherapy #runnerofinstagram #run #runtherapy #runjorun #emotionalwellbeing #runforanxiety #stresmanagement #runningisthebestmedicine #run #winterrunner #maketime #run #mind #mentalhealth #manageyourself #maketime

It’s the first day of the last month in 2018! Although the festive vibes and holiday jolliness are kicking in, I know a lot of us can feel the overwhelming mixed feelings. Here is our chance to weave some mindfulness and calm into our days in the run up to 2019. For me, I am starting my days by reminding myself how much I am loved and blessed. Most importantly, it’s the love from me, myself, and I. You see #ChïcSouls , self love is first #1 . Much love, Z💋 . #selflove #prioritiseyou #lastmonthoftheyear #Dec1st #December #2018 #youarebeautifulinsideout #holidayseason #holidayvibes #life #blessedweekend
As we move closer to the festive season and life gets even more hectic (if that’s even possible!) it’s easy for us to get swept up in the excitement by saying yes to every social gathering, and every festive event. It seems everyone wants to “see you before Christmas”! But for every ‘yes’, you’re saying ‘no’ to something else. It might be an unconscious No to having a sleep in, or a No to eating a healthy prepared meal (or in my case, it’s mostly a No to washing my hair as I constantly run out the door late again!). I don’t know about you, but when I start overloading the social calendar I start to feel anxious and overwhelmed. The thought of rushing from place to place and spending all weekend on borrowed time is not my idea of fun and it takes away from the enjoyment we would otherwise be having. With my husband and I both working full time and with an active 1 year old, weekends are precious! There’s only so much we can give of ourselves before we start to feel burnt out. If we haven’t allowed for some downtime, then when Monday arrives, the washing isn’t done, there’s no food in the cupboards and I’m starting the week feeling exhausted! This year, as the festivities are starting to make an appearance on our calendar, I’m making a promise to myself and to my family. We are saying Yes only when we consciously say No to something else. We are prioritising our enjoyment (and sanity) so that we can appreciate the time we do chose to spend socialising with our loved ones. So no more over committing! And hey, there’s over 100 weekend days in a year..... so here’s to making sure our January and February is just as fun as December! Tell me, how do you cope with the silly season craziness? I’d love to hear your tips below. . . . . #prioritiseyou #hertribetothrive #sillyseason #workingmums #workingwomen #yesbutno #putyourselffirst #family #selfcare #thriving
VITAMIN D Recently, I posted about magnesium and how important it is that you are getting enough. Well now that the grey weather is here, it's Vitamin D's time to shine. (Oh and fun fact, it's also linked to your magnesium levels, so if you're working on that, you need to be working on this too) So, are you getting enough of the sunshine Vitamin? The answer is probably not. Vitamin D (which ironically is actually not a vitamin but a hormone precursor) is super important; it is vital for our immune system, plays a significant role in Supporting our brain a upnd nervous system and has powerful effects on several other systems throughout your body Winter blues, low immune system, catching illnesses regularly, fatigue, tiredness, back pain, depression, anxiety, slow wound healing, bone, muscle and joint pain, excess hair loss... these are just SOME of the many symptoms caused or exacerbated by inadequate levels of vitamin D in the body And a lot of us are either deficient or lacking; especially at this time of year.  We obtain our vitamin D from both food and the sun, but due to decreased daylight during winter, excess time spent indoors, overuse of suncream during summer months, low magnesium levels and poor food quality, Vitamin D deficiency is pretty common. So if you're looking for something to help you battle the winter blues, reduce your muscle pain, boost your immune system and increase your energy levels consider increasing your Vitamin D. Our diets are a great place to start (think mushrooms, oranges and fortified foods) but it's pretty hard for us to get enough from food alone. On the days where the sunshine does decide to come out to play then definitely get out as much as possible, however, whilst the winter is upon us taking a supplement is definitely something to consider. . . . . . . . #smallbusiness #smallbiz #smallbusinesslove #femalebosslife #girlboss #femaleentrepeneur #mumpreneur #smallbizuk #communityovercompetition #authenticbusiness #reflexologist #aromatherapy #reikienergy #energyhealing   #everythingisenergy #selflove #selfworth #prioritiseyou #loveyourself #selfcare #healingjourney #selfcareisntselfish #anxietyhacks #winterwellness

Don't give so much of yourself to others that you end up losing yourself. Remember you have to take care of you so you can take care of them! 🧡 #Repost @annamathur - "It takes a slow building of self worth to put boundaries in place. To realise you can’t be everything to everyone all the time. That you don’t have to be. No matter how much your feeling of purpose might be tied up in wanting to be. You need more than to be your very last, quietly whispered ‘yes’.

It’s that time of year when we’re feeling tired & pushing ourselves to ‘just get to Christmas’. We’re also in a giving frame of mind and thinking about what we can give our loved ones this Christmas to show our love & appreciation. Don’t forget about you in all of that.

IT WORKS IF YOU DO. This applies to literally anything. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When it comes to the body you'd prefer to live in you may have chosen a number of tools to get you where you want to be but here's the truth bomb - any. one. of. them. could. have. gotten. you there. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But you stopped. You gave up. You decided against it. You decided it wasn't for you. You decided that you didn't like it anymore. You forgot about the end goal. You discarded what you committed to. You stopped believing in you. You decided it didn't matter anymore. (am I right?) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The common denominator here is... 'YOU'. It was all down to you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The tools available for you to reach your health and fitness goals are everywhere, EVERYWHERE. But, as the old saying goes - You can lead a horse to water....but you can't make it drink". Yes, I sound like my mother 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But ☝🏼 lovely people, pleeeease: Stop giving up on you. Stop starting over. Change your story. Change your attitude. Commit to what you want and see it through. Learn new ways to achieving greater discipline. Know your weaknesses and challenge them head on. Be greater than you were yesterday. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Live the life you want to instead of saying 'I wish' because, as you well know, 'I wish' changes NOTHING. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Outside of fitness, these words speak to me too! Just because I have daily workouts locked down 🙅🏽‍♀️, don't think that I'm not preaching to myself too. I want to be more organised, be a better coach, push myself further at work, grow my business, etc etc and all these things take ACTION. Action that I am accountable and responsible for, and the most positive way to look at it is that I, ultimately, have the POWER to change every aspect of my life if I want to. AND, so. do. you 👊🏼👊🏼 . . . . . . #dontquit #prioritiseyou #fitnessgoals #gettingstarted #cardioworkouts #homeworkouts #hiitworkoutideas #newmum #mumoftwo #boymum #beforeandafter #bodytransformation #justdoit #postpartumfitness #fitfamuk #coachtalk #wednesdaywisdom #progressnotperfection #insideoutproject #aspiretoinspire #fitjourney

Whatever work you do, however busy you are, no matter the level of pressure you are under ... find time - no MAKE TIME to do the things that light up your soul and boost your creative energy! I promise you will be better at the rest of it if you make time for YOU!! It doesn’t have to be fancy, it can be a walk around the block, five min in the shower to just sit and ponder, I make 10min each day to just write. It can be big - I’m also carving out time this week to launch my long awaited podcast because my soul longs to share in this way. I could be doing billable work every waking moment... but I’d very quickly get tired, burnout and honestly shit at my job if I didn’t also make time for my creative passion. What are you doing this week JUST FOR YOU!? Just because it feels good, just because you’ve thought about it ages? No matter how busy you are I promise if you really want to do it you can make ten min of your day available. And I can promise you, it will be worth it!!
I hear this so often from women when they first come to me. 💕 ‘I’m so busy’ ‘I’m too busy’ ‘There isn’t enough time’ 💕 Truth is, there is time and you’re not too busy. You’re just busy prioritising other stuff and certainly not putting you first. I read a post today from @melrobbinslive that really resonated with me. She said, ‘Instead of saying, I’m too busy try saying I’m not a priority’. 💕 This is the curse of modern women - feeling you have to put everyone else before yourself. So as of today, stop saying you’re so busy or too busy because there is always time for you if you make you the priority. . What are your priorities and are you your first? 🤷🏼‍♀️ . . 📷 @brypenney.photo #prioritiseyou #priorities #youfirst #radicalradiance #soulmission #heartcentred #manifestationbabe #reclaimthehappy #pinkflashesofdelight #highvibration #lifeonpurpose #findingyourfearless #centred #freedombusiness #borntoshinebook #shineonsister
We do resist prioritising ourselves because it feels selfish, arrogant, makes us feel guilty (why??) and we think it somehow means we might not perform as well if we put our needs first instead of flogging our tired bodies and minds when all they’d need is a well-deserved break! Flogging a dead horse comes to mind. Pretty pointless yes... so why wait until you collapse and can’t function? 🙄😳😱 Judith and I are often having the conversation of us putting too much on our plate, self-imposed tasks to feel better about ourselves, look more productive in front of others, etc... and when we don’t achieve all these self-made goals we only feel bad and not enough... how about reevaluating what’s on your plate and take everything off that isn’t absolutely essential?

Keep going!!! Yeah sometimes it gets hard, you work late, traffic is 💩 and exercise is the last thing you feel like and its so easy to stay f*** it and stay home. BUT does anyone ever feel worse from exercise? Hell NO! If youre in a poopy mood and you workout youll leave feeling better guaranteed! You gotta make time, get up a little earlier, get home a little later, the chores will still be there, work can wait, youll feel so much better I promise!
Happy World Kindness Day to me! . Hands up who finds it easier to be kinder to others than ourselves? 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️ I am making a change on that today and being kind to myself tonight. . Things have gone wrong today, I haven't done nearly as much work as I should, I'm feeling overwhelmed with things that need to be done this week and I have a huge headache. But I need to stop beating myself up about it. . So I'm switching off as much as I can, turned on the TV, poured a glass of wine and got myself some chocolates. . How can you be kinder to yourself today? . . . . . #nyih #worldkindnessday #bekindtoyou #lookafteryou #lookafteryourmind #lookafteryoursoul #bekinder #kindnessismagic #kindnessmatters #prioritiseyou #stepaway #winetime 🍷 #timeforme #timeformetime #wellbeing #wellbeingblogger #wellbeingworrior #wellbeingwisdom #wellbeingcoach #emotionalwellbeing
Away from home for work again and very sleep deprived with the last couple of nights struggling with sleep. I definitely do not function well when I don’t get enough sleep and don’t feel completely like myself. I loose all patience and need to remember often to take deep breaths and collect myself and my thoughts to continue through my day. Tonight a nice book to settle the thoughts and switch off before sleep. How do you unwind after a long day? Hopefully an early night and some restful sleep for an early rise to get my body moving! #exerciseismedicine #prioritiseyou #workingmumlife #missingmybabes
Today I saw the number on the scales and I just about died. I never want to be a number on the scales, because it really means nothing, what means more is how my body feels but to be honest my body feels like shit. I'm almost 8 months post partum and I'm almost 20 kilos lighter than I was full term pregnant with Mila which is amazing but I was still shocked! Now I'm going to be honest, I've actually learnt to love my post partum body this time round, I'm so proud of it 💖 I've grown 3 babies to term and been pregnant 7 times. My body has fought for my 3 babies, my body is amazing but it doesn't feel as good as it should. I'm tired, sluggish, I get back ache, i have tendonitis in my shoulders and elbows and I admittedly reach for quick snacks because I'm a pretty busy mama and just don't prioritise myself a lot of the time which I have decided isn't good enough. I've also stopped going for my daily walks because Mila has stopped needing that afternoon sleep, again, not prioritising myself! This is not a big declaration of how much weight I'm going to lose but a realisation that I need to start treating my body with more respect! Even though the number on the scales gave me a fright I'm still going to love my body as it is right now because I made it the way it is and I'll wear it with confidence because I have 3 little girls watching me ❤✌🏼 #loveyourself #postpartum #mumtum #journey #instamum #instamom #mumofgirls #3girls #my3girls #pregnancy #birth #pride #proud #bigbooty #lovemybody #loveyourbody #prioritiseyou #selflove
One thing I always find you get incredibly judged on is looking after yourself, once you become a Mum particularly! That means something different for everyone and I think it’s important to realise that self care isn’t selfish! It’s so easy as women to put others in our life first and not leave any time or energy to take care of ourselves. Stop and have a think Mummas out there what you did for yourself today?! Make yourself a priority for just a few minutes 💕😉🙃 #mums #mumlife #selfcare #prioritiseyou #youdoyou #motherhood #stoptheguilt #nutrition #nutritionist #nutritionists #nutritiontips #nutritioniskey #nutritionpro #nutritionmatters #yum #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #youarewhatyoueat #workingonme #fattofitjourney #weightlossjourney #icandothis #bbg #bbgcommunity #bbgmumsover30
What do we all have in common? . . We all have the same 24hrs to get "stuff" done. What makes us different? . . What we do with it..... . . Here's my top 5 #tips for ambitious #goalgetters to kick off your #mondaymotivation . . 1.Plan your week a glance and your day in detail. Focus on activities that will bring you closer to your goals . . 2. Feel empowered to say no. You only have so much energy to give. . . 3. Start your day with gratitude. Positive emotions increase focus,motivation and decrease stress. Even better they block negative emotions like envy and resentment. . . 4. Reflect at the end of each day on what went well and what you could have improved. You'll learn life lessons fast and when you know better, you do better. . . 5. Be kind to yourself. Life is a constant ebb and flow. Some days just won't go your way. But keep going - faith and persistence are the qualities of success . . ✨ Now it's your turn - what helps you focus on your goals? #thepowertoreinvent #goaldigger #timefreedom
Causes of Hunger – Lack of Sleep If you don’t get enough rest, this can affect the hormones in your body that control hunger. People who are sleep deprived have a bigger appetite and find it harder to feel full. Many sleep deprived people drag themselves through the day, skipping physical activity and relying on sugary pick-me-ups. But these habits don’t fight off sleepiness for long. And even worse – over time, they can contribute to weight gain or, at the very least, sabotage your efforts to lose those last few pounds. Hormones that play an important role in controlling your appetite and satiety are Ghrelin and Leptin. Ghrelin stimulates appetite, causing you to eat; leptin suppresses appetite, so you’ll stop eating and stimulates energy expenditure. Sleep deprivation can alter the levels of these hormones causing you to overeat, increasing your appetite for high-calorie dense foods. To fight sleep deprivation related weight gain and help make weight loss easier you should try the following: - Rest. Get the sleep you need. Focus on sleep first before focussing on maybe the gym. - Work out early in the day. Although exercise can aid sleep, try not to do just before bedtime. After working out adrenaline hormones and body temperature are up, which can keep you from falling asleep. - Eat right. Protein is critical for alertness, but when tired we tend to go for carbs. Instead eat a handful of unsalted mixed nuts. Have wholegrains with fibre. Sugary foods will give you an instant high for 30 – 45 minutes, but you’ll crash right after that. The wholegrains will fuel you for a longer time. - Avoid alcohol. It might help you to get to sleep, but it makes your sleep interrupted and of poor quality. Not only that… it often contains a lot more calories than you think! • • • #health_lifestyle_coach #healthcoach #lifestylecoach #lifecoach #welnesscoach #habitcoach #lackofsleep #insomnia #mindfuleating #prioritiseyourhealth #healthcoaching #hunger #causesofhunger #prioritiseyou #habitchangecoach
Hey there Mum. I see you. Never forget who you are. Make yourself a priority. You deserve it!
Look the other way, keep drinking your tea. Isn’t that the attitude of the Modern Woman when it comes to healing, or dare I say it, looking at the past? 💕 Why are we so opposed to look at our ‘stuff’ that’s holding us back? Is it because.. -You haven’t got time? -To scared to open up a can of worms cos the lid might not go back on? 🐛 -You can’t let the veil slip because you’re being everything to everyone (except yourself)? -Or is therapy/coaching/aspiring for pussies? 💕 Well hear this.. -You will be everything and more to everyone including, and most importantly, you. -The lid will go back on but on an empty can because the worms will find a new home. -Your veil slips already when you shout at your kids, children, partner, friends, self. -You do have time, it’s just your prioritises are elsewhere (not on you). -Therapy isn’t for pussies. It takes great courage & commitment to change. 💕 The modern woman (and I mean you) must let go of all that sh*t that’s holding you back. You deserve to live the life you want, be fulfilled and ultimately live a happy life. Rise up, your time is now. Change starts with you 💕 #prioritiseyou #selfcare #selflove #riseup #letgo #justdoit #youmatter #borntoshine 📷 by @brypenney.photo
Ok so I’ve just overcome my second cold in the space of six weeks, BOOM!! Anyone else been hit with one (or several..) this winter?

A GREY DAY.. A familiarly unpleasant list of feelings, exhausted, unmotivated, a need to hide, an unnameable numbness; this list descended the other day and it wasn't fun..... I've not written about my own mental health for a little while, I guess because its been largely good, I've felt strong and capable and dare-I-say-it, happy. When that's the case there is a temptation to stop doing some of the stuff that supports me in keeping well. I forget the odd dose of prozac, I might priortise some things over self care, I skip the day's meditation. If you then add to this combination a few full on, unexpected events in everyday family life, and it not long before I feel like forgotten symptoms are creeping back in and I'm hiding under the duvet unable to start the day. So the other day feeling overwhelmed - I opted out. I'm lucky that Mr Mc knows the signs well and can see when I'm struggling, so he took over with the boys and let me be (I know I'm really fortunate to have him able to do that, but it is the result of over 8 years of living with mental illness in our family so its come out of years of unpleasant 'practice' between us).�The feelings surprised me and I gave myself a really hard time, internal dialogue was telling myself that I'm lazy and that I was just making it up for attention and I should be able to snap out of it, and I'm a rubbish mum and wife, then I started to panic that "IT" is back, which meant I hid further under the duvet. Thankfully after an extended sleep in, some sub-conscious CBT training kicked in and I was able to slowly and tentatively push back on the critical thoughts, and I got up washed my face and gently pottered doing a couple of useful tasks around the house, still under a cloud of grey--ness but gently proving to myself that I'm not a lazy waste of space, I can contribute to the family, look at me I'm folding laundry!

Happy Tuesday possums, I hope your week is off to a great start 🕺🏼 This week has already been full of anxiety for me, but I am practising what I preach and making an effort to slow down and focus on meee! So if you’re in the same boat and struggle with overwhelming stress and/or anxiety, try slowing down by staying in and being a homebody or catching up with a gal pal that makes your soul happy ☀️💗 Big love and make the most of this Tuesday xx - T #prioritiseYOU #SELFCAREeveryday #learnwhentoslowdown

| YOU DESERVE THIS | ---> I realised on the way to the beach this morning that this ritual now feels as important (and as engrained and satisfying a habit) as brushing my teeth or eating. It is just something I do and make time for because the reward is silence, and sunshine, and an uplift in energy. . It is a #gesture of #love that I offer myself at least twice a week. I've said it many times and I'll say it again, it feels like I'm on holidays when I treat myself to a coffee in the sun at the beach! Why wouldn't I go on holidays twice a week 😬 there are times when responsibility or parenting calls and I can't get here, but if I am doing a drop off for one of the kids on a Monday or Tuesday, it's on my way to the beach because my life schedule allows it, but I also prioritise that. . Your life schedule will not be the same as anyone else you know. It couldn't possibly. And no one has the same exact desires as you, with your unique history...they couldn't possibly. So the way you make time amongst your responsibilities, to fill your SELF with uplifting energising health + happiness promoting JOY needs to be one of the things on your TO DO list, and it needs to align with who you are now. With what matters to you, and what you need at this stage of your life. . I do believe that #creativity is part of the solution for most of our problems. Up there with #communication and #compassion . You are doing a fantastic job. At something...at least! So today, acknowledge that, and create a small ritual for yourself that will improve your current experience. You do deserve this. You do.

Self care Sunday! Whether you are at work or you’re counting down the hours until school starts back tomorrow-take some time to yourself. Down time during the day is so productive , even if it’s being able to take a shower or use the bathroom without little hands reaching under the door 😂! These days mindfulness is becoming more and more important and by consciously taking a break you not only prioritise yourself-you also set a good example to the children! X #tramorerocks #slowdownsunday #selfcaresunday #mindfullness #prioritiseyou #beyourownbestfriend
Even if you’re just doing the groceries today, get out of the yoga pants and wear something that makes you feel good. Why wait to wear the pretty dress when you can feel good in it today? 💫 Stop saving the nice things in life for a special occasion. Fun fact: every day is special 💖
