|| FLUSH IT OUT… DON’T HOLD ON ||  In Western culture there is a disconnect between the mind and body. We’re not taught to be present in our body and listen to our body to then take appropriate action. From a young age we are taught to control and absorb our emotions. We’re taught to ‘suck it up’, ‘be strong’, ‘act like a grown up’, it’s not deemed ok to cry, shake and release our emotion.

|| BE COURAGEOUS ||  This is a topic that really resonates with me. So many of us our victims of life. It’s so easy to wish that we had this, or was like that person, or if only we had done that and then we could do this… bla bla. My recent motto is ‘stop wishing, start doing’. Each time I find myself wishing or longing for this or that I have firm words with my internal thoughts and realise that a lot of it stems down to having courage.

|| 5 TIPS TO HELP WITH SLEEP || Not being able to fall asleep is one of the most frustrating and upsetting experiences. When I suffered from sleeping issues I used to envy (I still do at times) my friends whose heads would hit the pillow and they would be out until the morning. I often thought that if I could sleep properly every night then I would be super woman – I’d be able to do everything I could do and more.

|| DAILY RITUALS FOR INNER PEACE ||  Here are some of my daily rituals that keep me on track and help me find a sense of inner peace.

|| EMPOWERED BY FEAR ||  Society puts so much pressure on us from an early age. We grow up believing we need to tick certain boxes to get to where ‘we’ want to be in life. By 30 we’re ‘supposed’ to own a house, be in our ideal job, be thinking of marriage etc etc…. THERE ARE SOOOO MANY LABELS!

||Day By Day ||  We’re all going at 100 miles an hour…. It’s easy to get swept up in the ‘rat race’ and allow ourselves to become stressed and feel overwhelmed about things that we are totally capable of managing. When our to do list is ever growing and things are expected of us that seem impossible it’s easy for us to allow our minds to spiral out of control and our bodies to stiffen.
