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
