5 Steps to Fast Track Your Productivity and Get You More Time!

Feb 16, 2020
 

Apologies for the first minute of the video - technical difficulties!

Having a workspace that's organised and free of cluttercan supercharge your productivity, giving you room to complete more tasks and freeing you from visual, stress-producing distractions. Maybe you've put off tackling the mess because you're somehow attached to what's in the room, are pressed for time or flat out don't want to make choices about your stuff. But whatever the reason, here's the way out: 

On Monday, 24 February, I will be hosting the  

5 Day TurboBoost Your Productivity Challenge to overcome workplace overwhelm 

This 5 Day Challenge will be taking place in my Facebook Group, Women’s Entrepreneurial Network  on 24 February and I would love for you to join us! You can register here.

In the challenge, I go into lots of detail about how the process works, but today, I wanted to give you an overview so that you can get started and get more productive right away!...

4 Steps to Reduce Stress and Make 2020 Your Year to Shine!

Feb 09, 2020
 

Hello there! I’m so happy you’re here! My name is Marina Newington and I’m the Founder of PowerSystem, a 5-step process designed to help entrepreneurial women find the clarity, confidence and energy to make life’s big decisions.

Today, we’re going to dive into 4 Steps to Reduce Stress and Make 2020 Your Year to Shine!

I chose this topic because I know that you want to move forward with your business, but let’s be honest, sometimes it’s hard to fine tune your focus! Getting distracted by the next shiny object may seem like the mystical magical pill that will give you a shortcut to success, but more often than not just leads to loads of stress – and who wants that?

Now are you feeling stressed? I was!

At the end of last year I let myself get so stressed that it totally took me out. Through a combination of being overworked and a lack of proper planning, my body started falling apart. You know when your body says...

Big Rocks for a Happier Life

Jan 29, 2020
 

Have you ever heard of the Big Rocks exercise? It is a wonderful visualisation of how we should prioritise the things that really matter in our lives so that we can be happy and fulfilled. After directing my clients to various video versions of this, I decided to make my own (above) to convey the message that I really wanted to get across. 

In essence, I want you to know that time is the great equaliser. We all get 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 52 weeks a year. BUT, how we choose to spend that time will determine if our life will be fulfilling, satisfying and happy.

What are the choices you will make?

In my example, the  jar represents your life and the time you have to fill. 

The sand (chia seeds) are all the little things that really don’t matter like: 

  • Emails
  • Menial tasks
  • Being mad at people for silly things

The pebbles (white beans) are the things that matter but aren’t critical like:

  • Your job
  • Your hobbies
  • Your car

The big rocks (oranges)...

Discover Your Core Values

Jan 22, 2020
 

Let me ask you a question, do you know what your core values are?

Is your life and your career aligned with your core values, or do you sometimes feel dissatisfied - like there is something more you should be doing?

You’re not alone! According to a recent article in the Telegraph,  69% of 2,000 people studied felt trapped in the same old routine and over 40% were unhappy with their lives. That’s why knowing your core values is so important, because they make it possible to make important decisions, such as taking a job, starting a business, or making other significant changes in your life that may bring you the satisfaction you are seeking.

 

So, what are core values?

 

Core values are the essence of who you are and the principles and fundamental beliefs that you hold to be of worth in your life. Whether you are stuck in a situation that leaves you unfulfilled or are struggling to make a big decision, these guiding principles have the power to...

What Does Self-Care Mean?

Jan 14, 2020
 

How are your New Year Resolutions going?

 

My biggest one this year was self-care and so far, so good. At the end of last year, I got myself into a real state physically, mentally and emotionally by not practicing self-care and I wanted to do things differently this year. I know that people get really confused about what self-care is. In fact, one client recently asked, “Is it just manicures and massages?”

I wanted to share my answer with you today and challenge you to start practicing self-care too!

 

So firstly, what is self-care?

Self-care is any activity that we do deliberately in order to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health. Although it seems simple to action, it’s something we very often put to the bottom of our to do list. Instead, we should really make this a priority, because good self-care is key to improved mood and reduced anxiety. It’s also key to a good relationship with yourself and others....

Why New Years Resolutions Don't Stick

Jan 06, 2020
 

Happy New Year!

 

Welcome to 2020 - what I am calling The Year of Clarity. This is the year that together, we will get clear on what your core values are, what you are passionate about and what really lights you up. We will then align these critical elements with your business goals and help you make decisions to bring you results with fulfilment and purpose. Sound good?

 

Let's start with your New Year's resolutions. Here's the bad news - they usually don't work. What? On average, 64% of resolutions are abandoned by February. Why is that? Why do so many of us make resolutions that we can't keep?

 

In this week's vlog, I discuss the top 7 reasons why resolutions don't stick. But don't worry, it's not all bad news! I also give you 7 solutions to put in place that will enable you to turn the negatives around and make your resolutions last all year!

 

Here are some examples:

Problem 1: Most resolutions are based on what you "should" do, or what...

Happy Holidays!

Dec 23, 2019
 

So here we are  - it's holiday time! 

After all the planning, preparation and shopping, the holidays are now upon us. Wether you celebrate Christmas, Chanukah or something else, the time has now come to reap the benefits of all your hard work and enjoy yourself with your friends and family!

Hopefully the cards have now all been sent, the presents wrapped and the food bought. My fridge is just about bursting now - how is yours doing? All that now remains to do is spend time with your loved ones and take advantage of the special moments together that this time of year provides.

I wanted to take this opportunity firstly, to thank you all for the support and encouragement you have given me. It has been an exciting year for me with lots of achievements from award nominations and speaking events to becoming a published author and appearing in magazines, but none of it would have been possible without you. So thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for helping to...

It's Canapé Time!

Dec 09, 2019
 

It's December and that means Party Time!  Woohoo!

I'm a really social person and I love parties, but at this time of year, I find that eating can be a real minefield. So many events to attend and so many delicious things on offer...

The big question is how to enjoy the holidays without overeating. No one wants to feel  unwell and overindulged, but it's a fine line to walk between overdoing it and having a great time! 

In this week's vlog, I talk about how to tackle canapés at various occasions that crop up at this time of year. From setting an eating intention BEFORE you even go out, to detailing which canapés to avoid and to which you should say "yes please!" I have you covered.

GoodtoKnow from Woman's Own

where I am featured with more great tips including:

‘If the canapés are your dinner, however, you can eat more, but be conscious of how many you have...

Making Gratitude Part of Daily Life

Nov 27, 2019
 

According to Cicero, "Gratitude is not only the greatest of the virtues but the parent of all others."

While we all know that gratitude is beneficial, it is usually at this time of year, with Thanksgiving upon us, that we tend to take a moment to reflect on gratitude and what it might look like for us.

The benefits of practicing gratitude are nearly endless. People who regularly practice gratitude by taking time to notice and reflect upon the things they're thankful for experience more positive emotions, feel more alive, sleep better, express more compassion and kindness, and even have stronger immune systems. And gratitude doesn't need to be reserved only for momentous occasions: Sure, you might express gratitude after receiving a promotion at work, but you can also be thankful for something as simple as a good hair day.

It's also good to remember that gratitude is a year round thing.  It's true that Thanksgiving really brings it into focus, but I would...
