6 Self-Care Tips

Rituals of self-nourishment are the invisible binds that hold our lives together, without them we begin to unravel and fall apart.

Self-care isn’t selfish – it is essential. 

In taking care of ourselves, we are better able to care for others. I like to think of self-care as filling our glass. When our glass is replenished our hearts become full and this loving kindness over-spills towards others. When our glass is empty, we have little left to give.

Self-care allows us to fill our own glass first so we can give others the best of us, rather than the rest of us.

5 Simple Steps Towards Letting Go

I have been experiencing a lot of change in my life recently. My partner and I of six years have decided to go our separate ways. Letting go is never easy, but I have managed to reach a place of acceptance and peace, despite my world being so uncertain right now.
We can never quite be sure why things don’t always work out as ‘planned’.

How To Avoid Affirmation Frustration

Some people go into panic mode when they realise the power of their emotions. They attempt to tie a noose around their negative thoughts and walk around affirming positive statements that simply aren’t true (yet).

I am not denying that affirmations are a powerful and effective tool for manifestation; because they are and that is why I use them myself and encourage others to do so. However, I am suggesting that we choose our affirmations carefully. If we affirm something that is too far from our current personal reality, this may lead to further frustration.

My Top Tips for Calmer Kids & How to Encourage Meditation

As a teacher of yoga and mindfulness in schools, I can honestly say that the transformation I witness blows my mind every time. More mindfulness in schools = calmer kids. And more importantly – HAPPIER children.

It’s our responsibility to provide our young ones with the tools they need to build positive and peaceful relationships with themselves and those around them.
