Forming Healthy Habits

“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.” ~ Annie Dillard. Do you want to spend your life stressed? Rushing and feeling like there’s never enough time? Feeling unhealthy? Feeling tired? Putting things off? Dissatisfied with life? Most likely, your answer is NO! But the reality is that, if you feel like any of the…

Overcoming Limiting Beliefs

“Don’t believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding. Find out what you already know and you will see the way to fly.” ~ Richard Bach: Jonathan Livingston Seagull Often, it’s so easy to hold ourselves back in life because of all the reasons we see why we ‘shouldn’t’ do something. Our…

Finding Your Way When You’re Lost

“When you lose your way, don’t follow bread crumbs to find your way back. Use the stars to light your way forward.”   This came into my head the other day. And yes, it’s a Hansel and Gretel reference! I’d be interested to meet someone who has never, ever once in their life felt lost. Self doubt or losing a…

How Do You Think?

I recently came across this poem. It was one I enjoyed as a child. The short and simple message is, I think, a great one to remember. The power of the mind is overwhelming.

And they can guide us towards our life’s true purpose. Whilst thinking about the forthcoming new year and reflecting back upon this one, I started to consider how my priorities have shifted in the…

Inspiring Words For A Winter’s Day

“Just because you can’t see a way out, that doesn’t mean there isn’t one. And finding one—or creating one—starts with believing it’s possible. Muster just a shred of belief. That’s all you need to take, one tiny step, and one tiny step is the beginning of getting unstuck.” I recently read an uplifting and encouraging interview with Tiny Buddha’s Lori…

Getting Your Vision On

After reading my latest copy of the FHT magazine, I’ve been reminded once more of the concept of vision boards. So I’ve decided to (finally!) get around to creating one. Whether you want to instigate change in your life, create some inspiration, motivate yourself to stay on track or firm up ideas about some of your goals, vision boards are…

This Too Shall Pass: Living According To Impermanence

In the second week following my son’s birth, I spent quite a lot of time googling ‘how to cope with a newborn’ and, perhaps even more frequently: ‘when do babies sleep through the night?!’ The Internet is amazing really; so many people, unknown to us personally who are willing to take the time to share their experiences. There’s something comforting…
