I spoke with my dentist recently, and he gave me one of the best pieces of advice I think I’ll ever hear. He said if you just get into a habit, a routine of something, you will have reached a goal in no time at all. He is right. I can see the proof in my life, as well as conceptualise future achievements achieved using this approach.
I am 32. I spent my teens and twenties lost in a haze of life confusion. In the last two years, however, i have started a business, taken up yoga, and even gone blonde! It has been the best two years of my life, and I know it is going to keep building.
Learn what you need to learn, and start building your dream. It’s only upward from here.
To belly breathe, you find a comfortable position, on a yoga mat, in a chair or on your bed. Lying flat on your back works best. Put your hands softly on your belly, and then breathe so that your tummy and hands move up and down. Gently rest your attention here for 5-10 minutes.
You should notice the relaxation, and sense of wellbeing, that come your way.
This is year the business element to the site is getting going. It’s a year for expansion, experience, and probably mistakes. I am wholly excited. Whatever challenges life throws up, the business ALWAYS feels exciting. Let’s see what 2019 brings!
The best way to describe 2018 is that it has been a journey. There have been an array of positives and negatives, but on the whole i am stronger for the year I’ve had. Every negative has made me stronger.
On the purely positive side, i am taking my Self-Care so much more seriously these days, and my life feels much better for it.
Also, i love this blog and everything fellow bloggers are teaching me. Thank you everyone for your love, support, fun and kindness in 2018!Xxx
I have been doing a lot of meditation recently through an app called Gaia. It is not mindfulness but involves a lot of deep breathing and relaxation. I am feeling really good for it and am not over thinking. It is amazing how much better meditation can make you feel.
I recently moved into my very first unfurnished flat… and i didn’t do the fabbest job of decorating it. I spent this evening mulling it over. Well, i concluded, it was my first time. I have more of an idea of what I want now. And so i did good.
My mum is having a Christmas party today. As excited as I am to see friends and family, I have to admit I find these things a bit of a trial. Old memories become fresh again, etc. This time, however, I have approached it slightly differently.
‘How can I support you?’ I asked my mum. This gives me the security of knowing what I’m doing today,, and the happiness factor of knowing I’m supporting someone.
The way things have gone recently, I don’t feel like I have very much agency at the moment. It is not my ideal situation. So to get through, this time, I am using the ‘one day’ trick. I know that one day I will have freedom and will have a lot of agency over my own life.
What are your tricks for getting through less than ideal situations?
