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.
As part of our company mission to keep well-being simple and accessible I do a weekly Thursday's thought. This Thursday's thought is about assumptions.
How often do you make assumptions?
In the previous blog ( Read here ) I talked about the holistic benefits of increasing movement throughout your day and that being separate from having a period of time where you do exercise such as going to the gym but just regularly having more movement throughout your day. So I thought I'd just also go through three steps (excuse the pun) of how to do that throughout your day.
In this short blog I'm looking at the idea of having regular movement throughout the day and what benefits it can have. There's studies linking sedentary behavior to lower lifespan as well as various different health conditions and that is what I want to explore in this blog.
