Kindness isn’t only about giving to others, it’s also about giving yourself some of the kind energy you’re sending outwards.
So while we go about our days performing tiny acts of kindness for others, don’t forget to do a few kind things for yourself too! Stop comparing yourself with others and treating yourself once in a while is a good place to start.
What other self-kindness things would add to your list of kind acts?
Are you happy? ⠀
Would it make you happy to learn what types of food works with your unique body type? 🤔⠀
Would it make you happy to eat a dessert and not beat yourself up about it?🤔⠀
Would it make you happy to have more energy for the things you love? 🤔⠀
Would it make you happy to have the support to stop giving up on yourself? 🤔⠀
Well girl I got you!! 🙋🏼♀️⠀
Let’s get real if you could have made changes on your own you would have done so by now. 🤯⠀
I get it I’ve been there I know it’s scary 🙈 but if you want something you haven’t had before you must do something you haven’t done before. ⠀
So let’s start 2020 on the right foot and make this the year your best year yet! 🏆⠀
DM me “happy” and let’s set up a call to work together. 📞⠀
5 June 2018 & today, 5 December 2019. During my massive closet declutter, I decided to try this dress on. When I was last photographed wearing it, it was a month after something inside me shifted and I decided I was going to start actually exercising. I had had a stressful 2017, and it got to the point where not only was my mental health needing attention, but I was starting to feel physically unhealthy as well. And so I started doing short workouts every morning, usually between 4 and 10 minutes long, and all from @lucywyndhamread's amazing YouTube channel. This, combined with long writing walks in the park, being mindful of (but not obsessive about) my calorie intake, and making sure to eat my 5 a day, have given me a huge sense of peace and control over my health. Eighteen months later, I don't know how much weight I've lost --numbers on a scale have never been good for me. What I do know is that I feel stronger, I have a better sense of what my body needs, and my clothes fit like they used to. I want to keep going, keep taking care of myself and see where it takes me.
🔴Big thanks to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists for acknowledging the use of the menstrual cycle as a vital sign of your health. 🔴Traditional Chinese Medicine has of course been using it for thousands of years - you may have been surprised to go to your acupuncturist with migraines or back pain, and them ask you about the length of your cycle, the colour of your blood, the amounts of clots, pain, spotting, bloating or PMS, they are looking into all of your signs and symptoms to build a picture of your overall health and vitality. 🔴You don't have to see an acupuncturist, your cycle will cleverly feed back to you via any menstrual symptoms, you can utilise the whole of your cycle as a barometer for your general health.

Sometimes the best thing you can do for yourself is to take time. Time to think, time to process, time away from the hustle and bustle of your everyday life. Not everyone will like it when you take time, because it does not serve them. But you need to do it regardless. Taking time for yourself it's all part of self-care.

Getting up at 430am every day wasn’t always as seamless (most of the time) as it is now. The thought of being an early riser and having to be up a second before I had just enough time to get ready for work, made me feel ill. ⠀
Here are some tips to help you get out the door quicker in the morning :⠀
1. Lay out clothes the night before. This is a must. The last thing I do before I go to bed is get my gym stuff all prepped and lay it out in the bathroom. This way, I wake up, brush my teeth, get dressed and go. There was a time when I would commute in the mornings (I was also up at 4:10 then) and have to get ready at the gym for work. I would have my bag prepped and ready to go the night before for a quick grab and go.⠀ ⠀
I've been letting myself slowly slip into a state of not eating the best AND not moving the necessary amount my body needs. At the beginning it feels good to slow down and not be super conscious about the choices I'm making but over time I start to feel bad, like physically. I don't sleep as well, my stomach is upset, and I just feel yucky. So I needed to kick start the healthy habits which means getting out of BED to move and that starts a chain reaction of healthier choices.
It's hard to keep making healthy choices BUT I know if I put the work in they will slowly come into my normal routine so o don't have to use the brain power to make the choices anymore. What might be something that you want to become a habit and part of your routine?? #healthychoices#habits#routines#wellnesscoach#wellnessjourney#waterfirst#workout#homeworkouts#dothework#selfcare

- Pani ucieka, odsuwa i nie dopuszcza do siebie. Pani nie pozwala sobie przeżywać smutku i złości. Co się stanie z Panią jeżeli przestanie Pani uciekać od sytuacji powodujących smutek? Co się z Panią stanie jeśli Pani nie zrobi tego co oddala Panią od tych emocji?
- Nie wstanę z łóżka. Nie będę miała siły. Nie znajdę motywacji, żeby się pozbierać. Nie zajmę się dzieckiem, a tego mi nie wolno.Mam wrażenie, że wtedy wszystko się skończy, bo jak raz pozwolę temu być to już nie dam rady wybrnąć. Wiem też, że na całym świecie nie ma ani jednej osoby, która to zrozumie i da mi na to przyzwolenie.
- Wie Pani jak się nazywa to o czym Pani mówi?
- Nie wiem.
- Wie Pani.
- Jestem pewna, że Pani wie.
- Tak, depresja. - Tak.
- Uciekła Pani znowu.
Need all the hydration after today’s isometrics workout! One of the things I love about coaching is that we have a personal development and
training call that I tune into weekly. This is a takeaway from one of those calls!
You know those last few seconds of every move in your workout - the final 3, 2, 1 countdown. How often do you stop in that final countdown?
It is the people that push through those last few seconds of every move that get the jaw dropping, incredible results. You know, the kind of results that motivate the rest
of us to get up and make a change!
So, what would happen if we pushed through those last few seconds in every area of our lives? If we put THAT MUCH MORE into our projects, our relationships, our
learning, our health and fitness?
It’s those small, seemingly insignificant behaviors (like those last 3 seconds of every
move) that compound over time to yield some seriously incredibly results. Pretty cool concept, right?! How are you going to push through those “last 3 seconds” in life today?? #finalpush#lastthreeseconds#mentalstrength#smallsteps#personaldevelopment
