7 ways to be more mindful this May May 19 2015, 0 Comments
If mindfulness wasn’t already enough of a buzzword, it has hit celebrity status this month with the campaign Mindful in May. Are you participating? I have been, although I have to admit my inbox is currently getting a thrashing and as we're about to enter Day 20 of the challenge, I'm having trouble keeping up. So what is the solution?
I’m trying not to beat myself up for not keeping up every single day and have been introducing mindfulness into my daily life in other ways as much as possible. I hope you can do the same and see mindfulness become part of your routine well after the month of May is over. To read the full blog post click here.
Self-love: getting to the heart of happiness April 26 2015, 0 Comments
On the blog recently in the lead up to Love to Live: Getting to the heart of happiness workshop, I wrote about how integral self-love was in increasing my happiness and how I stumbled across the practice (perhaps out of desperation!) I wouldn't say I was unhappy but I was severely burnt out. Practising self-love suddenly made my life easier. The more I practised it, the more fulfilled I was. I was able to nurture myself without seeking it solely from others. I became calmer, more in flow, more in touch with my intuition and my life purpose. I was at peace with myself, had greater confidence in myself, felt empowered that I could do and be anything I wanted. I stopped looking for love outside of myself. Don't get me wrong giving and receiving love to/from others is also magical and there is nothing that lights me up more than time with my nieces or nephew or my family. But learning how to better nurture myself was a game changer. To read my top tips on practising self-love click here.
