Can procrastination be a form of intuition? June 26 2015, 0 Comments

As most of you will know if you follow me on social media or read my blog, I'm a huge fan of Danielle LaPorte and the Desire Map. At the start of the year I ordered her Truth Bomb card deck, which is AMAZING! When it arrived I decided to pull a card out to place on my desk.

The card I pulled got me thinking.

The first reason this card got me so intrigued was that starting my own business has really shone a light on my procrastination habits. I've analysed the why I procrastinate, where it might come from, what is behind it and ways to overcome it until the cows have come home! I'm at peace with the fact that I still procrastinate much more than I would like. I realise it's a deeply ingrained habit that will take time and patience to re-wire and change. I'm ok with that. Acceptance and compassion have become my friends when it comes to my procrastination habits. Read the full blog post 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.


Goals with Soul (Part 3 in the series) January 19 2015, 0 Comments

 

It's mid January. The New Year. 2015. Predicted by some to be a very prosperous, abundant year where the hard work of previous years comes into fruition. In part three of this blog series I want to introduce you to an incredible ideology that will underpin your goal setting and resolutions for the year. It flips the idea of goal setting and resolutions on its head. It's real. Raw. It's a humanised way of looking at intention setting in a different light. It makes so much sense. I believe it also sheds a whole lotta light on why 92% of us don't achieve our New Year's resolutions. So who is the creator? To read the full blog post click here.


Do you suck at sticking to New Year's resolutions? (Part 2) January 06 2015, 2 Comments

I'm sitting here wearing next to nothing as it's so so hot in Melbourne today. I'm in flow so I'm going to keep writing in what will become a three part blog series. Given 2015 is now in full swing I got to thinking while blogging about resolutions what are some of my goals, intentions and resolutions for this new year? I better heed my own advice and make them obvious and known (remember it helps with accountability). I also started to think more about how meaningful my goals are and how passionate I am about making them more than just resolutions, but part of my life. My theory is the more meaningful something is to you the more likely you are to achieve it. This was something that was also ingrained in me in my studies as an occupational therapist. Participation in meaningful activities has been proven to lead to better health outcomes. To read the full blog post click here.


High tea, high on ideas November 26 2014, 2 Comments

On Saturday I went along to a high tea session hosted by the gorgeous Jade McKenzie of Event Head. It was an intimate afternoon of indulging in club sandwiches, Chandon and plenty of sweet treats while talking all things events (and yes health coaches do indulge on occasions!) Why write a blog post about it? Well for a number of reasons. I'm so glad I decided to snap up the last place for this special session! I came away so inspired, filled to the brim with ideas and high from the collective energy at that table and my mission was achieved. I now feel much clearer about how events may look for Yogamona in 2015. Read the full blog post here.
