By now you know my philosophy that “everything affects everything” and with that in mind, a key factor to all this is energy. I could ask you a number of questions about energy but if you’re busy, chances are you are using up all of your energy on giving to other people and things, leaving very little for yourself. One of the best most effective ways to improve your energy levels is to give to yourself FIRST. Before anyone or anything – that includes partners and kids! If we only have 10 minutes in our day, just for ourselves, then taking it will have very beneficial results in the long term. Start slow, 10 minutes is a good timeframe to start and then you’ll want to add more time as you start to see how effective it is.
When I started my coaching practice I had a vision for what I wanted to do, what I wanted to achieve for my clients and myself and a timeframe in which I wanted things to happen. I spent as much time as possible on building my practice often sacrificing time with my son, friends and my husband. As a hard-working determined person, those who knew me understood that I needed this focus to get what I wanted – and it’s working. Those who didn’t know me however, were seeing a different version of events.

I am a HUGE Mariah Carey fan. I’ve said it out loud now, there’s no turning back. I admire her in ways that so many people struggle to understand. She writes ALL of her lyrics. She uses her own experiences to pen down those songs and her voice is incredible.
I’ve had a manic week. Lots to do on the home front, lots of work, lots of friends and family stuff. Sometimes, these weeks appear in my year and I have to take them day by day, take a few hours for me when I can and focus on the finish line. As stressful as this week has been, it has been equally wonderful.
Anyone else’s inbox getting busier and busier? It’s like a never-ending stream of stuff you know you have to do before you even look at your task list! Stress can be a little creeper, coming into your life without you even realising it.
How often do you detox? Do you know how much your body has to do all the time? Your organs have a hell of job to do just to keep you alive, it’s probably quite exhausting, taxing and as we’re dying from the moment we’re born, they probably start slowing down year after year – like a machine. So how can you look after your insides? By detox of course!Read More
“Let’s get physical, physical, I wanna get physical physical”
Whenever I say the word physical, I want to break into song! Lucky for you, this is a blog post and not a sound post. This song is a funny and vivid reminder though of spandex, tights and Jane Fonda workouts (clearly this reference applies to the over 30’s) but it always makes me giggle and literally want to do the skipping movement from those aerobics videos.
You may have read that title and thought “huh, how can food possibly affect me achieving my goals?” Well, it can and it’s a fascinating topic.
I’ve always been obsessed with food mainly because I’m pretty scared of it. I was brought up with the saying “once on the lips, a lifetime on the hips” and unfortunately, it’s stayed with me. Read More
You: “Mirror Mirror on the wall, who’s the cleverest of them all?”
Mirror: “You mate, you!”
Would you believe me if I said that YOU are the cleverest person alive when it comes to knowing what’s best for you and what’s most helpful to you? Well, it’s true. Read More
