Mini-Moments to Boost Your Happiness

Copy of Copy of Intentional Journalling Prompts

A mini-moment is a tiny spot of time dedicated to lifting your mood and raising your vibration.  Think of it as a mini sanctuary in your brain that you can nip in and out of throughout the day.  All you need is one minute, but you can make your mini-moments last as long as you want, and do them as often as you like.

Having a mini-moment has so many benefits: reduced heart rate and blood pressure; an energy boost; clear thinking and focus; a deeper connection to your intuition; a calmer state of mind, and raised vibration, just to name a few.

Examples of a mini-moment include: having a chat with a friend (a positive one); listening to an uplifting podcast; reading a page or chapter of a book, and my favourite for when you are short on time, concentrating on your breath for one minute.

When you concentrate on your breath, you become very present in the moment, and it’s like having a mini meditation.  Don’t try to alter your breath – just notice it and keep bringing your mind back to it.  You can use an app for this, if you’d prefer.  I use the app Calm because it has a guided meditation for this and you can let it run for as many minutes as you have or need.

I have created a free printout for you on the Resources Page with lots of mini-moments for you to try.  Let me know how you get on and I’d love to know what your favourite mini-moment is!

I am currently creating a brand new Masterclass for you, and I’m so excited because I am gifting this Masterclass to all of my email subscribers for free!  If you want to find out more and be eligible for this amazing offer, all you have to do is subscribe to my email list.

Morning Affirmations

0cd3952b5693191f2b8cb896fff56c81[5181]Your best day will start with your perfect morning, and instead of going through your whole morning routine, I want to concentrate on morning affirmations.

Affirmations are basically little notes to yourself. You can use affirmations to remind yourself how great you are, be grateful for certain things in your life and set intentions for the rest of your day.

In my experience, when I set good intentions at the start of the day, my day flows better and I’m more focused and aware of what I’m doing. Setting intentions or going through your morning affirmations doesn’t have to take up a huge chunk of your morning routine. Just a minute or two is enough – whether you’re writing out your intentions in your journal, or just saying them to yourself out loud, or in your head.

I’ve created a worksheet for you, which includes some of my favourite affirmations and space for you to create your own. To help you out, here’s some examples of how you can start your affirmations:

  • Today, I am…
  • I am grateful for…
  • I am ready to…
  • I feel…
  • Today, I will consciously create…
  • I am mindful of…

Commit to your morning affirmations for a week and see how it effects the rest of your day. And don’t forget to let me know how it went!

Sunday is Funday

HealthBenefits ofOranges (6)

‘A Sunday well spent brings a week of content.’

I’m re-naming Sunday, Self-Care Sunday…

As female entrepreneurs, mums, workaholics, wives, girlfriends, friends, daughters we work ourselves to the bone all week. When was the last time you enjoyed a cup of coffee while it was still hot? Or had the time to slap on a face mask and paint your nails?

The thing is, if you don’t look after yourself, your business will suffer. You won’t be well enough to reach your goals, and if you do, you won’t be well enough to enjoy the success.

Whilst still working a day job, Sunday was one of the few days I had to work on my business. I would wake up early and get to work straight away because I knew I would be back at the day job on Monday morning. I was working 7 days a week – 4 at the day job and 3 on my business. I was heading for burnout.

I quickly realised that something needed to change. I cut my hours at work so I could concentrate on my business and I re-claimed Sunday. This is the day to recharge and relax ready for the week ahead.

It was only a minor change, but the effects it had on my health and well-being were amazing. I had tons more energy and I actually looked forward to work.

Try it yourself and see… Your self-care day doesn’t have to be Sunday. Choose a day that works for you, but commit to one day every week where you switch off your laptop and recharge.

My favourite ways to relax:

  • Take a hot bath
  • Read a book
  • Take the kids (or yourself) to the park
  • Have a spa day at home
  • Switch off your phone for a full day
  • Spend some time in the kitchen – try a new recipe
  • Write in your journal
