In this simple steps blog I'm covering the topic of water and hydration.
It's one of the easiest habits to start and really doesn't need to take up much time at all. Yet for a lot of people it can be one of the most difficult to actually get into a habit of consuming more water.
It's so necessary, 60% of our body is made up of water and so for all of our cells to function optimally, it's it's a necessary requirement. Studies have shown that even mild dehydration can affect your focus, your concentration, how you perform physically. So it's necessary on a physical, mental, emotional level.
So welcome to this week's Thursday's Thought where I've been thinking about values.
To me values are at the very core of where I start with my clients and in any of my programs. But often people come to me not having any idea of what their values are. Or in fact perhaps what values are.
As part of that I do these simple steps videos and this is part two of the topic, nutrition. The first video I covered just three of the holistic benefits of looking at your nutrition and maybe making some simple changes in order to be eating a more natural diet.
In this video I'm going to consider some ways that you could get started - so three simple steps in order to start introducing a healthier more nutritious diet into your lifestyle.
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.
