Become A Doer

Do you find dreaming easy but putting your dreams and plans into action challenging?  Not taking action is one of the greatest thieves of opportunity, so here are my top 6 tips to turn your dreams into reality.

  1.  Prioritise

Think about the big picture, your big dream and then break this down into small step-by-step goals that will take you to the big dream.  Often, what is lacking is a plan of action, we may know what we want as a big dream / goal but don’t specify what we want our lives to look like in the next three years or what 6 steps we need to take to achieve that.  A dream is a goal without a plan, so decide on a course of action today to make your dream becomes a reality.

  1. Start small

You have heard the saying, how do you eat an elephant?  One bite at a time.  So start small, achieving small goals will keep you motivated and on the path to achieving your dreams.

  1. Delegate

If you don’t like doing something, such as your accounts or admin hire a freelancer to do the tasks for you.  If there are tasks that you don’t enjoy and you do them, not only will they take you longer to do, they take up your valuable time and they may de-motivate you.  Remember it will take someone who is qualified a lot less time and will in fact save you time and money in the long term.

4.  Fail forward

Record and celebrate your progress!  If something is not working for you, either you need to learn a new skills or most often you just need to do things differently.  Remember the definition of insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result, so if it’s not working change it.  You only fail if you don’t learn from your mistakes.

  1. Anything worth doing, is worth doing badly : Don’t wait for it to be perfect

I didn’t really understand this when I first heard it as I used to be a perfectionist, but it relates to the point about failing forward, just take action, do something and learn from your mistakes.  If you wait for something to be perfect, or you are waiting for the perfect time you will be waiting for ever.  Rather take action, adjust what isn’t working and keep adjusting until it is working.

  1. Get an accountability partner

I am in two different Accountability Groups and this is invaluable as I am always accountable to someone, I am always being challenged to step up and out of my comfort zone.   I call these people my Cheerleaders; we all need them, either a group or an individual who can motivate you, celebrate your successes with you and will always have your back.  I recommend having a mentor and an accountability group or partner.

Remember; as you do more, you become more.  An idea is just a small fraction of the journey; it is what you do with your ideas, dreams, and passions that count.

If you are a dreamer rather than a doer you would like to complete the cycle, use your dreams to inspire your action then connect with me by clicking here, and find out how my online course can help with any blocks that are stopping you from moving forwards  and get you taking action and start fulfilling your dreams.  We work closely with clients to help them take action, increase their energy levels, and achieve long term optimal health and happiness and live an Inspired Life.








New Year’s Resolutions – Made Them ~ Keep Them

I am sure you have all made New Year’s Resolutions……how are you getting on?  Have you kept them or broken them?  I encourage my clients to constantly set goals rather than waiting to make resolutions once a year.  I also find that emotional eating can be one of the biggest reasons why people’s Healthy New Year’s Resolutions fail.  Emotional Eating is when we turn to food for comfort, stress relief, or as a reward rather than to satisfy hunger.  Most emotional eaters feel powerless over their food cravings so we are going to discuss its triggers and give you some tips to help you fight emotional food cravings and satisfy your needs using mindful eating.

Emotional Eating

“Emotional eating is using food to make yourself feel better, rather than to fill your stomach.” If any of the following apply to you, then you may be emotional eater.

  • You eat more when you’re feeling stressed?
  • You eat when you’re not hungry or when you’re full?
  • You eat to feel better (to calm and soothe yourself when you’re sad, mad, bored, anxious, etc.)?
  • You reward yourself with food?
  • You regularly eat until you’ve stuffed yourself?
  • Does food make you feel safe? Do you feel like food is a friend?
  • Do you feel powerless or out of control around food?

We celebrate with food on many occasions such as Easter, Birthday’s, Christmas and certain holidays and special occasions and whilst this isn’t necessarily a bad thing it can become a habit and can lead to emotional eating.  Overindulging on these occasions does not necessarily mean that you are an emotional eater.  However, when eating is your primary emotional coping mechanism, if your first impulse is to open your food cupboard or the fridge whenever you’re upset, angry, lonely, stressed, exhausted, or bored, then you are an emotional eater and you end up getting stuck in an unhealthy cycle where the real feeling or problem is never addressed as emotional hunger can never be filled with food.

You may feel good or better in the moment, but the feelings that triggered the eating are still there and often you feel worse than you did before.  You often end up feel guilty for messing up and not having more willpower and you have a more and more challenging time controlling your weight, and you feel increasingly powerless over both food and your feelings.

Identify Emotional Eating Triggers

Once you understand what causes the emotional triggers this can also help you break the cycle, are there certain places, situations or feelings that make you want to reach for sugary or fatty foods

  • Stress – chronic stress leads to high levels of the stress hormone, cortisol being released and this triggers cravings for salty, sweet, and high-fat foods. The more uncontrolled stress is in your life, the more likely you are to turn to food for emotional relief.
  • Emotions – Eating can be a way to temporarily “stuff down” emotions, such as anger, fear, sadness, anxiety, loneliness, resentment, and shame. Food helps you to avoid the emotions at least for a little while but the problem is this is short lived and so you end up in a cycle.
  • Boredom – Often food is way to occupy the time, to relieve boredom, or as a way to fill feelings of emptiness and dissatisfaction with your life.
  • Childhood habits– Were you taken out for pizza when you got a good report from school, or did you get biscuits when you were feeling sad? Or do you have fond memories of baking with your mum?  These emotionally based eating habits often carry over into adulthood and when we have the same occasions or feelings in latter life we treat ourselves the same way our parents did

Ending Emotional Eating

You need to find other ways to feed your feelings that don’t involve food; you need to have conscious control over your eating habits.  Have other ways to fulfil yourself emotionally and practice mindful eating, this is a practice that develops your awareness of eating habits and allows you to pause between your triggers and your actions.  Mindful eating helps you to learn to meet your emotional needs in ways other than eating.  It helps you to pause and reflect when cravings hit and you give yourself the opportunity to make a different choice.

The one thing I tell my clients is that hunger is not an emergency, this helps you pause and wait and while you are waiting you can check in with yourself and how you are feeling.

5 Steps to Mindful Eating

  1. Make a shopping list and stick to it. Most of your shopping should be in the fresh produce section, avoid processed and packaged foods
  2. Only eat when you are hungry and start with a small portion.
  3. Appreciate your food; you can either silently or out loud express your gratitude for the opportunity to enjoy delicious food and give thanks for the people you are eating with.
  4. Take small bites, chew your food thoroughly and savour it, identify the ingredients, especially seasonings.
  5. Eat slowly. If you follow the advice above, you won’t bolt your food down. Devote at least five minutes to mindful eating before you chat with your tablemates.

As the colder weather arrives do you find that your skin starts to get dry and flaky?  You need to pay attention to what you skin is telling you no matter what time of the year and all you need to do is tweak your skin care routine depending on the season.

You should always protect your skin and supply it with beneficial nutrients inside and out to keep it healthy all year-round but as the weather changes in the winter you need to adapt your skin-care routine as the air becomes drier inside and out.

Don’t forget your skin is an outer reflection of your inner health, I believe that a nutrient-dense, whole foods diet, with particular attention paid to certain vitamins, minerals, and other compounds, is a powerful tool helping your skin stay supply and moisturised throughout the winter – many people miss the opportunity to make major improvements in their skin simply by changing what they eat.

Flaky, chapped lips are common in the winter months and may require some extra TLC, use a gentle exfoliate to remove dry, dead skin cells and follow up with a nourishing lip treatment for super smooth lips.

Two effective remedies against dry, itchy winter skin:

  • Getting sufficient amounts of animal-based omega-3 fats in your diet, and
  • Using coconut oil to moisturize your skin

Top Tips for protecting skin in the winter

  • Stay active — it benefits your mind, and body, work out at home, or bundle up and go for a long walk outside. When the weather turns cold, it is tempting to curl up with a good book, but maintaining an active lifestyle will keep you healthy from the inside out.
  • When going outside, protect your skin from the elements by wearing a hat, scarf and gloves.  Cold, dry weather can wreak havoc on your skin, but by wearing the proper attire is an easy way to prevent exposure.
  • Introduce more nourishing skin care products for the face and body.
  • Start the winter season with refreshed skin, slough off the summer residue to start with refreshed skin that may be dry from too much summer fun in the sun – do a gentle exfoliation on a weekly basis.
  • Coconut oil or Almond oil: both natural home remedies that keep the skin smooth and moisturized – massage almond oil over the dry areas.  Can also be used for the lips
  • Aloe Vera: Aloe Vera provides all the essential nutrients to the skin and makes it smooth and glowing.
  • Homemade Sugar Scrub: mix sugar with coconut oil and use as a scrub.  You can add some honey – this mix will exfoliate and moisturize the skin.

Apart from taking adequate care of your skin during winter, it is also necessary to focus on what you eat. Here are some helpful tips:

  • Keep the body well hydrated and drink plenty of pure water
  • Keep away from junk and processed foods
  • Citrus fruits can strengthen the body and keep the skin healthy – they are filled with Vitamin C which is a great anti-oxidant for the body and skin
  • Lemon: Lemon is rich in vitamin C – drinking a cup of warm water with fresh lemon added helps to detox the body and balance the pH which helps to ultimately give you skin a natural glow.
  • Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables high in antioxidants.
  • Add ginger and turmeric to your food.

Six steps you can follow to ensure healthy skin in the winter and all year-round:

  1. Watch Your Environment: remove as many toxins as possible from your environment
  2. Enhance Your Digestion: make sure that your digestion is working optimally – your skin is a reflection of your internal health
  3. Ensure Outstanding Detoxification: make sure all your detox pathways are working effectively, I recommend doing a natural supported cleanse at the change of each season.
  4. Balance Your Blood Sugar
  5. Keep Your Hormones in Check
  6. Boost your Nutrient Intake

Top Tips for Supplement to Protecting Skin in the Winter

  • Zinc
  • Vitamin C
  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids
  • Probiotics
  • Mystify– an all round antioxidant formula
  • PA9+ for antiageing benefits and to improve overall circulation

The supplements I use and recommend to my clients are natural, plant based supplements, you can either shop here using user ID : 1810762

Recommended Skin care Products to Protecting Skin in the Winter

Use good quality natural and organic skin care products, I personally use Neal’s Yard Remedies Organic products and recommend them to my clients, the benefits of using natural and organic skin care products is that they nourish and treat your skin, allowing your skin to breathe and stay healthy.  Most conventional skin care products are made from by-products of the petroleum industry and are not nourishing or healthy for your skin and your overall health so choose your products wisely.  If you want a free, no obligation skin care / supplement consultation please contact me .

I believe that the best way to protect your skin during the winter, along with a nutrient-dense diet and pure water, and using a truly all-natural, organic moisturizer can help you achieve a clear and radiant complexion all winter long.

Natural Ways to Boost Your Energy

Natural Energy


Everyone wants to boost their energy and the focus for this article is on energy, or specifically, the lack of energy! Low energy and feeling fatigued seems to be part of life in the 21st Century, but it doesn’t have to be this way!

The answer very often lies in what is on your plate and the type of foods that make up your daily diet. As with any efficient engine you need the right fuel oil and water if it’s going to perform properly!

There are specific foods that are known to boost metabolism and sustain abundant energy levels and there are foods that rob you of energy and should be avoided.

Energy boosting foods

  • A fresh green smoothie add a banana or pineapple
  • Live organic full fat Greek yogurt – plain with some fresh fruit (pineapple, papaya, mango, peach) and nuts
  • Fresh or dried dates, dried apricots or figs (check they have not been sprayed with preservatives such as sulphur)
  • Homemade flapjacks – made with some chopped nuts (almonds, cashew)
  • Mashed avocado with shelled hemp seeds
  • Raw vegetables – carrots, celery, radish, red or yellow pepper, cauliflower
  • A handful of seeds – pumpkin, sunflower, linseed

 Energy robbers

  • Stimulants such as caffeine, caffeinated drinks and alcohol
  • Refined and processed foods
  • Sugary foods (Confectionary, biscuits, soft drinks)
  • Excessive saturated fats
  • Skipping meals
  • Poor digestion
  • Infections
  • High stress
  • Poor sleep
  • Allergens and Toxins

Eat breakfast!

And eat protein for breakfast – this is absolutely the #1 “eating for energy” strategy. It gets your metabolism off to a strong start, keeps you feeling fuller for longer and avoids blood sugar imbalances which cause energy dips. It also sets you up for the day, making better choices for lunch and helps you avoid the afternoon “wish I could sleep at my desk” slump. Cereal, coffee and toast is not breakfast!

Coffee does not give you energy; it simply masks the symptoms of low energy from lack of sleep, poor diet and unresolved and perceived stress.

Poor  food choices also lead to low energy and fatigue. Processed, packaged and fatty foods take a lot more energy to digest and too much sugar, additives, chemicals and artificial sweeteners from these types of foods wrecks havoc with your body as well.

Other factors that lead to low energy include lack of sleep, or poor quality sleep, lack of exercise and stress.

  #2 Energy Strategy: Digestion, Digestion, Digestion!

When your body is unable to properly digest the food you eat, it robs you of energy as so much energy is spent trying to digest and absorb your food. When you eat food, if it just sits in your stomach for hours on end, because your digestion is sluggish you will feel bloated and fatigued and when food is not properly digested, you don’t receive the correct nutrients, vitamins and minerals that you need to beat fatigue, improve your sleep and fight illness.

Regardless of how tired and exhausted you are, there are things you can do to get your energy back.  I promise you do not have to go through life lacking the energy you need. I have been there and I have dramatically increased my energy levels. I mainly start my day with a green smoothie but also have free range eggs and organic bacon on occasion.

For me and for the majority of my clients green smoothies are the best breakfast option. Most people are busy, rushing out the door, organising kids, pets, meetings and breakfast usually consists of toast and coffee and as I mentioned before this is not breakfast!

My recipe for the perfect green smoothie:

Add two or more large handfuls of your favourite leafy green to a blender

Add a chopped banana or a slice of pineapple for a little sweetness

Add ½ cup of berries (blueberries / raspberries / cherries)


You’ll give yourself energizing carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and a hydrating breakfast to start your day right.

Here’s a smoothie recipe to boost your energy:


  • 3 cups (large handfuls) of spinach, chopped or frozen
  • 1 medium banana, peeled
  • ½ cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds
  • 1 tablespoon ground chia seeds
  • 150 – 200ml water of filtered water


Add all the ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth. Add more water if you prefer a thinner texture


My 5 Step System for Increased Energy

Step 1: Keep a food dairy – Food is information! Identify the foods that lower your energy levels

Step 2: Eliminate all traces of your trigger foods

Step 3: Eat REAL whole foods

Step 4: Drink clean and filtered water

Step 5: Ensure you are taking the right supplements: There are a number of vitamins and minerals which can assist with sleep and energy levels. I work with my clients to design a bespoke supplement programme to help with their specific needs

 I cannot stress this highly enough – it is essential that you take great quality tested organic and natural supplements otherwise you could be making your energy levels worse. Many supplements are synthetic; contain sugar, additives and fillers.

I took supplements for months before I realised that they were robbing me of energy and making me more ill, because of all the additives and fillers. This was affecting my digestions and causing fatigue among other symptoms,

Menopause : Simple Solutions


The menopause is a natural stage in life, it is not an illness but you would be forgiven for thinking it was.  Over 50 years ago women did not suffer physical and emotional symptoms of menopause and to this day women in many other cultures simply do not suffer the physical and emotional symptoms that women in the West are programmed to accept as inevitable.


Most of the symptoms we suffer from in the West are due to our diet and lifestyles so I will share with you a few top tips to help you through menopause, to make the transition easy and comfortable.



hot flushes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, mood swings, declining libido, osteoporosis, ageing skin, lack of energy, joint pains, weight gain, headaches and changes in hair quality. Interestingly, men also experience a lot of these symptoms, with irritability, a declining libido, changes in weight, ageing skin and hair, depression and anxiety.


These symptoms are apparently part of the Western ageing process for both men and women, so it’s important not to blame every symptom that you experience on the menopause and the good news is that it is possible to reduce and remove most of these symptoms!


The liver is one of the most important organs when it comes to menopause, it is responsible for detoxifying, filtering and the production of raw materials for our hormones, so when the liver is functioning optimally the symptoms of menopause are significantly reduced.  To enable the liver to function optimally it needs to be able to detox efficiently and this is a two stage process.  To start with it needs antioxidants,  lots of antioxidants to split the toxins apart and then we require amino acids to neutralise the toxins and fibre to get them out of the system.  Half of the population does not eat a single portion of fruit or vegetables on a daily basis, so we are just not getting the nutrients, we need.  Our main source of antioxidants and fibre is fruit and vegetables and if the liver does not have the nutrients it need to get rid of the toxins, there is a stress on the system and when we are going through the menopause there is a additional stress on the system, because there are changes taking place we actually need more nutrients, to allow the liver to detox.  So you need to focus on consuming dark green leafy vegetables and dark fruits these are the things that provide the body with antioxidants for the first stage of the liver detoxification, and then for the second stage we need amino acids, good quality organic protein.


A well-balanced diet is essential during the menopause as it enables the body to adjust automatically to the hormone changes, naturally maintaining oestrogen from the adrenal glands and fat deposits.

These include:

  • Stabilise blood sugar levels by reducing the amount of sugar and refined foods in the diet and eating little and often to reduce the toll on the adrenal glands
  • Reduce or eliminate caffeinated drinks such as tea and coffee which contribute to the blood sugar problem but also act as diuretics depriving the body of vital nutrients and trace elements
  • Ensure a good intake of essential fatty acids from oily fish, nuts and seeds which help lubricate the joints, skin and vagina
  • Avoid soft fizzy drinks which contain high levels of phosphorus and increase the risk of osteoporosis as it draws calcium out of the bones

Hot flushes and night sweats are among the most common and uncomfortable symptoms and their frequency and severity can vary from woman to woman.  Certain foods and situations can trigger some hot flushes and these can include spicy foods, caffeinated drinks, alcohol and stressful situations.

Phytoestrogens can help alleviate menopausal symptoms so make sure you include plenty in your diet. Phytoestrogens are found in almost all fruit, vegetables but they are most beneficial when they are found in legumes, such as lentil, peas and chickpeas.


Supplements are beneficial during the menopause in order to ensure that you have adequate nutrients for maintaining the changes in a supported and healthy way.  Any supplement programme should be taken for at least three months in order to achieve the best results.  It is essential to take great quality, natural and organic supplements from a reputable source otherwise they can add to your symptoms rather than reduce them .  At the end of three months you should reassess your condition and adjust your supplement programme accordingly.  Working with a Functional Nutrition Coach / Practitioner is essential.

Vitamin C: beneficial for the immune system, strengthening blood vessels, it is an antioxidant and also has specific benefits at the menopause.

B Vitamins : These are called the ‘stress’ vitamins because they are crucial when you are under pressure and stressed.  They body needs additional B Vitamins when we are stressed. During menopause it is extremely important that you give your adrenal glands support and B vitamins will help to do this. They can also be useful if you are suffering from reduced energy levels.

Omega 3 Fatty Acids: essential fats, these need to be supplemented around the menopause because they can help with many of the symptoms.

Magnesium: This is an important mineral, it is needed in over 200 processes in the body so it is important that you have enough, very beneficial to keep your bones healthy during menopause and it is also known as ‘nature’s tranquilliser’ as it will help with anxiety, irritability and other mood changes.

Vitamin D: Vitamin D is required for calcium absorption, but it also plays an  important role in prevention of cancer, especially breast cancer, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes and osteoporosis. Having good levels of vitamin D can help slow down the ageing process which we all need.

Do you know that it is possible to balance your hormones naturally, addressing hormonal imbalances helps you lose stubborn weight,  balances your mood, reduces night sweats and hot flushes.  The good news is that it is possible to reduce and remove most of the symptoms associated with menopause.

Know The Differences In Organic, Natural, And Health Foods

Organic and Natural

Organic, Natural and Health have all become “buzz” words and it can be confusing when you are trying to choose the best options for you and your family.  It is important to be aware of what these terms mean and how they can be used in labelling produce.

If anything is labelled organic is should to have a certification logo on it – for the UK the Soil Association Logo, for Europe the logo is green with a leaf made up of stars and in the USA it is USDA organic – The use of the logo and correct labelling is obligatory for all organic pre-packaged food.  If it does not contain an organic certification label then it is not organic.

Organic farming differs from conventional farming in the methods used to grow crops.  Conventional farming uses over 500 different types of chemicals where as Organic farming has about 25 approved chemicals that can be used.  Conventional famers apply chemical fertilizers to the soil to grow their crops, these chemical fertilisers destroy the minerals in the soil, which in turn reduces the mineral content of the crops grown, so not only are the contaminated with chemicals they lack nutrients.  They use insecticides to get rid of insects and disease and synthetic herbicides to control weed growth.  Conventionally grown food is often tainted with chemical residues that can be harmful to humans.  The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers 60 percent of herbicides, 90 percent of fungicides and 30 percent of insecticides to be carcinogenic.  There may be some debate about this but my philosophy is “if in doubt, don’t” and when it comes to my health I want to make the best choices I can and reduce my toxic exposure.

Pesticides have many negative influences on our health, including neurotoxicity, disrupting hormones and suppressing our immune system.  It can also affect reproductive function and has been linked to miscarriages in women.

In contrast, organic farmers feed and build the soil with natural fertilizers, they use natural methods such as insect predators, barriers and companion planting to get rid of insects and prevent disease and they use crop rotation, tillage, hand weeding and mulches to control weeds.

Natural can be a very misleading label as it can depend on the manufacturers use of the term, for instance at the very extremes urine and faces are “natural” but you would not want those appearing in any products you bought or used.  However on the other end of the scale water and minerals are natural, sea salt is natural.  So it is important to know the manufactures understand how and where they source their produce and raw materials from – are they using raw materials that occur naturally in nature or are they using “natural” in the very loosest meaning of the word.   Foods produced using genetic engineering or foods containing high fructose corn syrup can also be labelled natural – this does mean that they are healthy.

Health foods is another tricky label, I see many food in the health foods aisle of the supermarket or in health food stores that I would not consider “healthy”,  General claims about benefits to overall good health, such as “healthy” or “good for you”, are only allowed if accompanied by an approved claim. This means that these claims must be backed up by an explanation of why the food is “healthy”.

Feeling grateful

When we focus on what we have in our lives and what we are grateful it leads to an increased sense of well-being.   Having an attitude of gratitude helps you feel more positive and it helps to sustain that positivity in the long term.  Gratitude is about expressing thanks and appreciation for what we already have, rather than focusing on what we want or don’t have.  Studies show that by cultivating and attitude of gratitude we can increase our well-being and happiness; it is associated with increased energy, optimism.

Gratitude will change and improve your life; it has done for me and for my clients.  I get clients to start off by making a list of three things they are grateful for each day and then slowly increasing that to a list of 10 things.

I like to list at least five new and different things everyday that I am grateful for and use a gratitude journal for this.  If you need help to get started use these simple questions:

  1. What am I happy about in my life right now?
  2. What am I excited about in my life right now?
  3. What am I proud of in my life?

Spend 5 minutes every day and keep a note of what is going well in your life, this will become a constant reminder of what is good in your life and soon you will notice the more that you are grateful for, the more you have to be grateful for and if you struggle to list three things at first soon you will have a list of 10 or more things everyday that you are grateful for

Don’t feel grateful?

Don’t worry, when I first started, some days all I wrote down were that I was grateful my kettle worked and that I was grateful to have a roof over my head – we often tend to forget about the little things and life gets out of perspective.

If you still can’t think of any to be grateful for consider this

“If you have food in your fridge, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of the world.
 If you have money in the bank, your wallet, and some spare change you are among the top 8% of the worlds wealthy.
 If you woke up this morning with more health than illness you are more blessed than the million people who will not survive this week.
 If you can read this message you are more fortunate than 3 billion people in the world who cannot read it at all.”

Benefits of Gratitude

  • an improved sense of well-being
  • increases positive emotions
  • long-term happiness
  • decreased anxiety and depression
  • leads to better relationships
  • helps you feel more connected
  • can improve sleep quality as you have happy thoughts before you go to bed and to sleep
  • Gratitude make you stronger
  • It makes you a better person, you become more helpful and kind to other

Gratitude quite simply makes the world a better place, when you express your gratitude and are kind to others, they will pass this on.

There are a number of ways to develop and attitude of gratitude, keeping a gratitude journal as mentioned is one of my favourite ways but you can write a letter of gratitude to one person or to the people who have had a positive influence in your life.  You could also do a 21 Day Challenge – 21 days with no complaining, criticising, gossiping or negativity.  I do also have a charm bracelet with charms that represents things I am grateful for in life and things I love and I am reminded of these things whenever I wear my charm bracelet.

Once you start looking for things to be grateful for you will find more and more things to be grateful for and you start to appreciate and enjoy the simple pleasure s that life brings.  I have stopped taking things for granted, I am grateful for everything and everyone in my life, I am living and learning everyday and now mostly see the good in every situation or can at least see a positive outcome.  This is not always easy and it does take commitment and practice, so my challenge to you is start today.  Start bringing in an attitude of gratitude; don’t wait for things to happen in order to be grateful, be grateful for what you already have and start to look for the positive in every situation, it becomes easier over time with practice.

Let me know how having a attitude of gratitude works out for you, please share your experience with me by clicking here, and let me know if you want a copy of a FREE Gratitude Diary to get you started on one of the steps on your journey to Life-Long Health, Happiness and Abundance.



Subconscious Mind


by Kerry Madgwick as published on Watchfit

What you believe and perceive you will create – “As a man thinks so is he” this will be your experience whether it is good or bad.  Earl Nightingale said “You become what you think of most of the time”.  It may not be the truth but it will be you reality.

If your thoughts are negative you will always focus on the negative, finding problems instead of looking for solutions and the negative thoughts affect how you see the world and your assumptions about what is happening to you.  This creates a “victim” mentality as you always think things are happening to you.  When your thoughts are positive, you will always focus on what is going right, you take control of your thoughts which is empowering.  You create how you think and feel.  This is very simple, it may not be easy and it may require some work and commitment but I promise you it is worth it.  Try this quick and simple experiment : say “I am sad” out loud 5 times and then say “I am happy” out loud 5 times, just trust me and try this out and see how you feel, do you understand why what you say and think matters?

The most important decision you will ever make if whether or not we believe this universe is friendly or hostile – Albert Einstein

The thoughts you have about your life, your world, become your reality – physical changes happen due to what is happening in your mind – I am not saying that you can sit back and just think about it and not take action, but your thoughts and your beliefs create the environment to enable you to take inspired action to achieve your dreams.  Your sub-conscious affects your assumptions about the world and what you can and cannot do and this has been “programmed” throughout your life.

For example: if you keep telling yourself that you are sick and tired, you will always be sick and tired.   One of the most exciting things I discovered is that a belief is just a thought that you think over and over and over again – it is not necessarily true; it is just something that is formed via repetition and we can simply change our beliefs which I think is very exciting!!  Our brains are very efficient computers and they assess and filter information, and then either accept or reject this information based on our previous experiences.  Once the information is accepted it becomes a belief and then once it becomes a belief it is stored the same way a computer stores a programme.

Did you ever believe something as a child and then grew up to find it wasn’t true.  We were told things like if you pulled a funny face and the wind changed your face would stay that way ……now I know this is a funny belief and possibly something you may of questioned, but when we are told things repeatedly by people who are older than us, people we see as being in a position of authority who we think know better than us and when we don’t have anything to compare this to, we believe what we are told.  Most of us are “given” beliefs about relationships, health, ageing, money, careers etc that we never question and yet they have no basis in truth.

Take a close look at the beliefs you hold in all areas of your life, things like you have to work hard to get anywhere, Dr’s are always right, rich people aren’t happy, money is evil, we get sicker as we get older.  When I sat down and went through all the things I believed, I was amazed at how many beliefs I had that were not serving me and when I really questioned and explored these beliefs I was able to let them go and felt a sense of relief and freedom that I had not had before.

Think about the beliefs you have about your health, do you believe it is possible to have optimal health?  As Henry Ford said “if you think you can, or you think you can’t you are right”.  I like to get people to take action, you can read and read and read, learn everything there is to know but unless you take action nothing will ever change.  So here we go:

Write down at least 5 beliefs that you have right now.  If you have more than 5 keep you can do this in stages, the more you can work on and change the better but I don’t want this to be overwhelming so lets’ start with five.  As you write them down they may seem very solid or they may start to seem slightly silly when you write them down or say them out loud that’s OK, just write them down.

  1. Next read each belief out loud and ask yourself these questions:
  2. Is this really true?
  3. How do I know it is true?
  4. Is this belief serving me?
  5. Do I have proof that this is true?

If not, let it go.  Feel the sense of relief and the opening for you to form a new belief, a healthier belief that serves you?

Remember beliefs are your choice, are they serving you?  Are they stopping you form achieving your goals or dreams?   We do not need to change beliefs that serve us, for example if you believe you can heal yourself you can, this is a positive belief, it gives you the power and responsibility and will serve you when you are ill, if you believe that money is good, this is a great belief to have money is good it enables you to live the life you want, enables you go on holiday to relax and recharge and enables you to give back and help others when you have more money.

I know that you may have some beliefs that are not serving you and don’t seem as easy to change and this is where I use techniques such as Theta Healing® to change these to make sure they are serving us positively rather than negatively.

What would your life be like , without self limiting beliefs?   To change your life you need to change your mind!

Your personality, how you THINK,  ACT and FEEL  = Your Personal Reality!

What would your life be like without these thoughts

  • I need more money
  • Life is hard
  • I’m Not Good Enough
  • I’m not Open To Receiving

These are just a sample of thoughts and beliefs that are running through your mind over and over again as long as they persist it is hard to change the way you THINK, ACT and FEEL!

Revitalise Your Morning Routine

Revitalise Your Morning Routine

The way you start your morning impacts the quality of your day. If you start out feeling stressed and anxious rather than rejuvenated, it may be a sign that you need to update your morning routine. Finding a routine that works for you can provide the boost you need to conquer the day ahead.

Follow these quick tips to make the most out of your mornings:

Eat a Healthy Breakfast

What you eat for breakfast is essential to a healthy morning routine. For a perfectly balanced and delicious breakfast on-the-go, have a green smoothies with added Protein Plus or SLM Protein Powder.   When you skip breakfast, your body reacts by conserving energy and slowing down your metabolism which  equals less energy throughout the day. If you start the day with cereal and milk you are getting a direct hit of sugar which also equals less energy – start the day with protein and this ensures sustained energy release throughout the morning.

Start the Day with Exercise

You don’t have to go for a 5-mile run every morning to boost your energy levels, you can start the morning with 20 minutes of yoga or take a quick walk around your neighbourhood  to re-energize your body when you wake after a good night’s sleep-, rev up with ProArgi-9+ or e9.  Yoga is beneficial as not only does it get your heart rate up, it also improves your flexibility, posture, balance, muscle tone, and endurance – find a 10 – 15 minute yoga routine that works for you.

Read or Write

Before the busy rush of your day begins, sit down for a few minutes and write your thoughts and goals in a journal, this can help unload some of your stresses and ease your mind. Writing for just 10 minutes in the morning can help you focus on yourself, create self-awareness, and give you the opportunity to think about what you want out of your day.

If you don’t feel like writing, or listen to a Self Development book – DO NOT start the day with the news.   Immerse yourself in the words of others and enjoy this peaceful time alone to jump-start your brain before you start your day.

Follow a Schedule

Following a morning schedule helps you stay calm, organized and focused.  Start your day with a quick 10 minute yoga routine, take a shower and get dressed and then follow that with a healthy breakfast.  The important thing about a routine isn’t always the order in which you do things, but just that you have a schedule in the morning to start the day with productive habits.

I call this my hour of positivity and I do 20 mins of exercise, 20 mins meditation and 20 mins journaling or reading and then have my Green Protein Smoothie and I am ready to start my day in a positive way.
