In this short Thursdays Thought I'm covering the idea of limiting versus empowering questions.
One of my programs the emphasis is around supporting people to put into practice external well-being habits that are going to support them to have lasting change. Whether that's reducing stress or start healthy eating, whatever it may be. Alongside that I couple it with what's going on internally;
What are their beliefs?
And how is that impacting making these lasting changes?
In this series of blogs, this is the first part of two on nutrition. Today I'm just going to look at what three holistic benefits are to looking at your nutrition, and eating more naturally as a bit of a rule of thumb.
Firstly I want to say there's so much information out there on nutrition and people have different views and beliefs and different health conditions that all affect what you are and aren't going to eat. I'm not going to cover any particular diet for example vegan, keto, gluten-free, whatever, I'm not a nutritionist or dietitian.
This is part 2 of my topic gratitude, in the first blog I covered the holistic benefits of being more grateful and how it can be transformative both personally and in your career (Read it here). This blog I'm going to focus on five simple steps on how to get started.
This week's Thursday's thought is about the belief of being enough.
I recently attended an audience with Marisa Peer and as a therapist she explains that really we all have the same underlying core beliefs, and one of them being a limiting belief of ‘I am not enough’. This belief is something that we've heard or interpreted from a very young age and then throughout our lives we've continued to see the evidence that reinforces what we already believe.
In this simple steps video I'm looking at the topic of gratitude and how to introduce it into your life and the holistic benefits.
Neuroscience and psychology have shown the transformational benefits both in your career and in your personal life by being more grateful. When we see the appreciation in things that triggers our neurotransmitters, increases the growth of them, they release dopamine, serotonin and that's what brings us that feeling of happiness and contentment.
This week's Thursday's thought is about self care versus selfishness.
I often hear the thought or the belief that I can't put myself first, I can't take any time for myself, self care it's selfish.
This tends to stem back to what were taught as a child;
"Put others first"
"Make sure you share"
"Think about other people's feelings"
Today I'm going to cover decluttering, how a tidy environment can mean a tidy mind, I'm going to cover three holistic reasons why it's beneficial, as well as three simple steps to get started.
So the first reason to consider is emotional.
Clutter simply can stress us out and by decluttering this can reduce the stress.
So this week's Thursday's thought is about people pleasing.
Do you struggle to say no?
Do you find it difficult to have boundaries in place?
Or do you just simply want to keep the peace and the happiness with people?
Even if this is at a detriment to yourself and your own goals and your own wishes?
It can be all too common to just say yes and then think afterwards "why did I say that?" or feel guilty for saying no or actually to believe you're the only person that is suitable to do that job or to help that person and if you don't who will.
Today I'm going to be talking about three easy steps to manage your sleep hygiene. In a previous blog I talked about the holistic benefits, we looked at emotional, physical and mental benefits of considering your sleep hygiene ( Read more here ).
In case didn't see it sleep hygiene is simply the term used to describe your habits and routines around your wake/sleep cycle, and this can be healthy or unhealthy. And not only do they affect the night's sleep you get but also can affect you the next day as well as your longer-term health.
Today I'm covering the topic of sleep hygiene, what that is as well as some effects this may have on you.
What is sleep hygiene?
Sleep hygiene is simply the term used to describe our habits and routines around the sleep/wake cycle.
