What are the positives? 😊

I don’t know about you but I find the daily Coronavirus report on the BBC,tough to watch some days!   Each day the media attack the government, highlighting predominantly the shortfalls.  Obviously it’s not perfect, but I thought I’d highlight some good news that are making a positive impact since the lockdowns;  It appears we are past the peak of the epidemic or at least we ...

What’s going right?!

Well, well, well!!  It’s been a little while since my last blog,  unusually.  Just thought I’d write a little something, as for some unknown reason, I’m bolt awake at 1.30am!  Doh!  Just thought I’d write to you about the positive things that are happening, right now, in front of our very own eyes!  Of course what is happening is unprecede...

Hope.

So I’ve noticed that with all the negative going’s on, there’s actually some positive aspects to come out of this terrible global epidemic. Under all the greater stress to make ends meet, the crisis life management, and the reduction of our freedom, is an underbelly of collective understanding and joining of the people. Yes sure, we have seen some of the not so nice human elements, ...

Family…..

After much recent ‘busy-ness,’ it was a very welcome break to have some of my close family over, to go out for a meal and a beach walk yesterday.  I think sometimes we underestimate the power of close family ties and bonding, on our own wellness.  Obviously this can be conversely true, but if you are lucky enough to have a strong family network and support,  it has been ...

A lesson from mum…

A much needed injection of positivity is needed this week I feel.  I always try, and mostly succeed, in looking at the good, rather than the bad. I’ve realised, even though it’s such a simple thing,  it actually has huge effects on mental status and wellness. It’s not ignoring the negative aspects but merely recognising life lessons learnt, and being grateful for l...

Two sides to….

In life, there’s always two sides to every story! The good, the bad, the yin and the yang! This week encapsulates this point exactly, where it encourages us to truly value life and it’s gifts. I’m pleased to say that it’s edged more on the good side than bad, and that’s the way I’d want it, despite being able to always learning valuable lessons from life’s more testing times.&...

Being grateful……

Such a simple word, but if you truly embrace it to its core, it is extremely liberating! In this day and age it's easy to get caught up in the negative. If you look at a lot of media sources there is some positivity, but a lot of scaremongering; hate, fear, rejection, division, 'them' and 'us', crime, debt, and worry. With this, it is easy to forget the good things of life. We all ...

Gratefulness….

I think today's sunny weather combined with a welcome break mid afternoon, made me, what my school report called, 'a daydreamer!' Despite what I feel was highlighted as a negative then, (especially where mindfulness is so topical), it is, in hind-site, actually not a bad thing to do occasionally. Switch off, let your mind wander, and your thoughts float away. In a world that dicta...

Learning to love ❤️

Absolutely loving this beautiful weather! I think it makes life seem so much more radiant and positive! Speaking of which, how you feel, has a massive impact on your wellbeing, both short and long term. Perhaps not really that surprising that your mental state and outlook, can have a massive impact on a whole cocktail of hormonal responses, which obviously not only effects the mental a...

The power of choice

  (Lesson 23) Well, it's a short & sweet blog this week - mainly because after writing & editing it, I lost the bulk of the text!! It's easy to let stress takeover at times like this, but I'm not going to let it! In the scheme of things it's a minor annoyance & whilst I love blogging & helping others, to get things in perspective - it's small fry! They say d...
