Where Are Your Values In Your Life?

We are all born with our own unique blueprint and journey of life, It is our values that help guide us and align us with who we are destined to be. Our values are our inner GPS, helping us discover our passions and purpose but never losing who we truly are.   They are crucial in empowering you to discover the Key to You and unlocking your potential to thrive. Yet most people don’t know their values and just conform to what society tells them they should.   2020 has shaken us up from inside out and turned us on

The Importance of Commitment to Yourself

With Covid-19 and all the uncertainty it brought, I let some of my good habits slip by. But I know I am not the only one as it has happened both friends and clients. I could feel it catching up on me and my well-being. I was also conscious that autumn and winter were approaching fast. If I didn’t intervene soon, I would regret it come the end of the year. Walking and getting outdoors is one of my go to stress management tools. It is my number one physical activity and also a social outlet. But the good habit

Coping During Lockdown in a Pandemic

Hard to believe we are already into May in 2020. Life right now is certainly looking a hell of a lot different than many of us envisaged that’s for sure. So how are you really doing as we now settle into 8 weeks of lockdown in a pandemic and the restrictions being slowly lifted? I can see a lot of clients and people are on emotional rollercoasters where majority of time they are ok, coping as best as possible and then wham out of no where they are getting stressed, anxious and over whelmed. Even myself, I found some of

Remember Happiness is an Inside Job

As a coach, happiness is an integral part of the work I do with my clients. Happiness is defined as “the experiences of joy, contentment or positive well-being, combined with a sense that one’s life is good, meaningful and worthwhile.” (Lyubomirsky, 2007). This definition is the one that resonates with me when think of happiness and what it means for me. It describes the uplifting emotions we can feel, while also including the importance that we have a sense of meaning or purpose which makes our lives worthwhile. We still can have this overall feeling of happiness which helps us

When You Walk Slow, Good Things Happen!!

This was one of the many quotes that came up during my recent trip where I completed 170kms walking stage 1 of the Camino France with a friend. This quote really helped summarise this trip and how in such a short space of time there was so much learning, growth and connecting with people which totally recharged and re-energised me.

What Does Your Current Path Look Like?

In our lives we all have our own path. Each of our paths are different and depending on our current circumstances will impact how we would describe the weather and scenery on our current path. We all can relate to this, where things are going grand on our path and then out of nowhere trouble is brewing and we find ourselves caught up in a storm yet we have to keep walking the path. Or the opposite where we are coming out through the storm and we can see the sun shining and the path now looks easier to face. Sometimes our

 5 Things I Learnt About Self-care

Self-care is being self-aware about what you need in your life right now. While showing yourself love and compassion to help you get through each day being the best version of you possible. Having a health promotion and mental health background I was well aware of how important it is to look after yourself both physically, mentally and emotionally. I know that self-care is not selfish, it is a necessity. I have posted numerous posts/tweets over the year about its importance. Yet I still found myself not taking my own advice and slipping back to old habits, when I should

Are you a Fan of New Year’s Resolutions? (I’m Not)

New Year means a new you right.  It is a brand new year and going by half the articles and emails circulating at the minute that means time for you to make your New Year’s resolutions.  Or are you still working on last year’s resolutions? I am going to be honest with you, I am not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions as I am generally still in hibernation mode and with the miserable weather out there it can be very hard to get motivated to start taking action. Usually by the end of the month my will power
