Learn How to Be Kinder To Yourself

There are times in our lives when everything gets a bit too much. Whether that’s overwhelm at work, too much screen time, an extensive to-do list, or a strain on our mental or physical health. Instead of taking a step back we often soldier on regardless of the consequences. Read more

The Power of Positive Thought #positivity #personaldevelopment

The Power of Positive Thought

I’ve written about positivity many times before, and I continue to believe wholeheartedly in the benefits of positive thought. We’ve all experienced those days when we’ve slept through the alarm, laddered our tights, and hit every red light on the way to work. It’s as though that single panicked moment in time when we realise it’s 7.23am and we need to leave the house at 7.30am was the catalyst to a bad day. However, if we stopped to take a breath and accept that we’re running late, it can dramatically influence what could be a downward spiral. Read more

Step into Success with this Easy Exercise #selfhelp #success

Step into Success with this Easy Exercise.

SuccessSuccess is an odd word because for some it conjures up the corporate business world, or highly toned athletes competing for that gold medal. It’s a shiny word batted around the entrepreneur internet sites, and is often discussed at length during a Ted talk. But what does success mean to you?

For me, success is remembering all the items on my shopping list and not forgetting to feed the fish! Okay, I’ll admit, I do feel the stirrings of accomplishment when I release a book and it receives positive feedback, but I believe that any victory can be those huge achievements as well as the small wins.

Finding Inspiration to Write Non-Fiction #AmWriting #NonFiction #PersonalDevelopment

Where Can You Find Inspiration to Write Self-Help Non-Fiction?

I attend a few author events throughout the year and one of the questions I love to ask my fellow scribes is ‘what inspired you to write your book.’ I love the variety of answers I receive as they are as wide-ranging as the genres we write for.

Fiction authors find inspiration in everything around them. I know that my young adult trilogy (The Guardian Series) evolved after I spotted a photograph in a magazine of a gravestone with three hooded figures. With non-fiction, that spark of inspiration may be slightly different. Read more

Daily Tasks to Improve Your Life #PersonalDevelopment

January Challenge: Daily Tasks to Improve Your Life

Daily TasksWhen I started blogging five years ago, it was to record a series of challenges I’d set myself as part of my New Year Resolutions. Over the years my blog has evolved to include posts on holistic health, wellbeing, mental health, family, blogging, and personal development. These are all topics I love to learn and talk about. My background as a holistic health practitioner and tutor sets me up perfectly to share my thoughts and lessons on these topics.

I was doing a bit of goal setting recently and thought about where I wanted my blog to go. With the success of my recent series How to Create a More Fulfilling Future (you can read the final post HERE). I thought it would be fun to return to my roots and share more challenge related posts.

How to Create a More Fulfilling Future: Week 8 #PersonalGrowth

How To Create a More Fulfilling FutureI’ve been delighted with the response to this blog series so far and would like to thank everyone who has taken part. Readers have engaged with the questions and really given them some serious thought. It’s this reaction that I had hoped for. When we want to work on our personal development it’s so important to review various areas of our lives first. These questions give you the thinking space you need and I’ve loved reading the responses.

If you’ve missed any of the posts in this new series then don’t panic – you can catch up by clicking the links at the bottom of this post.

I will post additional questions for you to answer every Monday. As always, you might want to gather them all together like a personal workbook, or just pop in and out to answer the questions that appeal to you.

Don’t think too hard about each question, just go with the first thing that pops into your head.

If you have been following the entire series, then you’ll hopefully have a fully rounded picture of your life, goals, and aspirations so far. You should have found yourself thinking quite seriously about certain aspects of your life – this is good!

Grab a notebook, your journal, or open a new word document and record your answers so you can refer to them when needed. This week I want you to think about specific moments in your life:

Questions for week #8:

  1. What is your proudest moment?
  1. What is your funniest moment/memory?
  2. What is your most embarrassing moment/memory?

Join me next Monday for more questions.

As always, your responses can be as private or as public as you choose. Feel free to leave your answers in the comments below. If you’d rather not, then simply share how you find the selection of questions, if you can answer them easily or if you struggled, and what you have chosen to do with the answers that came up for you if anything.
