Do you Self-Care?

Jan 10, 2021
 

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....

Beat the January Blues

Jan 05, 2021

So here we are at the beginning of 2021 and...we are back in lockdown!

To be honest, I can't say this situation is very different from Tier 4 except that the kids are now back to online learning. I have friends in other parts of the world that seem to be living life more normally, but we are all still feeling the stress that the pandemic has brought.

I know there have been a lot of hopes pinned on the end of 2020 and a return to normal life in 2021, but I'm afraid we're not out of the woods yet. On the up side, vaccinations have started and there is a light at the end of the tunnel. On the down side, that light is further away than we thought and we won't get there before March at the earliest.

But don't lose hope my friends! We have all learned from the previous lockdowns and it is a new year with a great opportunity to do things differently. I am of course focusing on how to be more productive as I am a productivity coach, but before we dive into that...

Goals Are Your #1 ASSET

Dec 04, 2020
 

Setting Goals.

 

Is that an empowering phrase to you, or a scary one?

 

Lots of people get thrown by creating goals because they’ve had a lot of flops in the past from setting goals that were too vague, aggressive or poorly framed. Working towards a poorly crafted goal can feel daunting and unachievable. It can make you want to quit.

 

Have you been there? I know I have!

 

Instead, I want to help you create goals that are a huge ASSET to your business and your life.  When I started making goal creation a priority in my business, everything changed for me and I want the same for you. Setting effective goals allows you to achieve more by providing focus, enhancing productivity, boosting self-esteem and increasing commitment.

 

Did you know that solid goals could do all that for you? That’s why they are your #1 ASSET. We’re going to use that phrase to explain the 5 steps towards successful goal setting.

 

Sound good? Then let me show...

7 Top Tips to Make Gratitude Part of Daily Life

Dec 01, 2020
 

Great news - the lockdown in the UK is almost over...again. To be honest, I have been hearing from friends and clients lately that it has been really difficult to keep boredom, negativity and lack of motivation at bay these last couple of months. Do you feel this way?

 

There is a light at the end of the tunnel though as talk circulates about hotels, restaurants and foreign travel once again being a part of our lives. While the hope of these activities can bring some relief, I would challenge you that there is a more proactive action you can take today to lift your spirits that is grounded in acknowledging the upside of the present.

 

Can you guess what I’m talking about? Gratitude.

 

Gratitude is a word that is thrown around a lot. But what does it really mean?

 

What is Gratitude?

We are often told to be grateful, but it can sometimes seem that gratitude is more an obligation than a benefit; just another item on our...

Bounce Back Interview for MPower Podcast

Nov 16, 2020

I have to be honest with you and say that things have been challenging recently. This latest lockdown has me feeling pretty stuck. I can't go anywhere, there's nothing to do and it seems to be endlessly raining, so not much opportunity for taking a walk. This time around, three of my kids are back at school - which is a great thing - but it means that only child is living at home now. On top of that I caught a cold - NOT Covid, just a cold that has totally knocked me out. 

 

Sounds pretty mis, right? Here's the thing though, I know that this will pass. I have faced some real adversity in my past and I was able to not only bounce back, but to build something better and stronger than what I had before.

 

Can you relate to this? I know a lot of us are feeling down right now, but have you had an opportunity to push forward despite that?  In this week's vlog, I am so excited to share a recent interview I gave to Nicola Hulin on doing just that.

 

Nicola is the...

3 Steps to Guilt Free Fun!

Oct 17, 2020
 

I have a great day planned and I’m super excited! First I’m meeting a friend for lunch in a new trendy restaurant in a part of town I don’t visit often, then we’re taking a walk along the riverbank to the Tate Modern where we will see the Andy Warhol exhibition.

 

Does that sound like fun to you? It’s heaven for me. But what about all the other stuff I need to do? I’m launching a digital course in a few weeks, I have a live webinar to prepare, I have to do all the back end stuff like sales pages, checkout pages, email sequences and ads preparation, half term is coming up and I will have 6 back in the house for two weeks and on and on…

 

Does this ever happen to you? You want to do something fun for yourself, but all the things get in the way. Whether it’s all the stuff you have to do for work or for your family, a layer of guilt washes over you and tells you that you can’t take the time for...

5 Mindset Shifts To Make More Time and Money

Oct 13, 2020
 

You know how sometimes when you think something is wrong, someone will say it’s all in your mind? Or when you are trying to do something you find difficult they will say it's mind over matter?

 

The reason for that is that our minds are hugely powerful deciders of how we think and what we do. Sometimes our minds can bring us up and take us to places we only dreamed of reaching. Other times, they fill us with self limiting beliefs and keep us from taking action and moving forward.

 

I want to talk to you now about getting your mind in gear, getting it on board and thinking differently. That’s why today I am sharing

Productivity 101 – The First Step

Oct 04, 2020
 

I am so excited for this week’s topic because it’s not sexy and it’s something people don’t usually want to do.

 

What??

 

I know, I know, that doesn’t sound like something you might want to do either, but believe me my friend, when you do this one thing you will put yourself in the best position possible to begin saving hours every week and have so much more clarity about what direction you want to go in.

 

What am I talking about?

 

Productivity 101: Beginning with where you are now. Because how are you supposed to figure out where you want to go to if you don't know where you are?

 

Here’s how it breaks down - the classic 3 step process for problem solving is:

 

  1. Identifying where you are now
  2. Envisioning where you want to be
  3. Figuring out how you get there (which is my favourite part because it’s all about taking action).

  

So we start at the beginning with understanding what your situation is...

The 5 Best Kept Secrets To Creating Impactful Results

Sep 27, 2020
 

What’s the craziest thing you have ever looked up online?

 

My searches tend to be pretty tame, but according to a study by SearchFactory, some actual weird and funny things people ask on Google include:

 

  • “Why did I get married” (40.5K average monthly searches)
  • “How to hide a dead body” (19K average monthly searches)
  • “Why do men have nipples?” (18K average monthly searches)

 

This limitless archive of information can be great, but it can also be dangerous. Especially if you’re a busy entrepreneur looking for answers about how to most effectively spend your time to get improved business results. You may ask:

 

“What is the right path to success? Where should I put my time and energy? Facebook lives? Webinars? Email marketing?”

 

The truth is that online “research” can actually be one of the biggest obstacles to getting focused and productive work done as you enter a rabbit hole...

The Top 3 Goal Making Mistakes to AVOID

Sep 21, 2020
 

September is busy at the best of times with school and work starting post summer-holidays, but this year, we also have a global pandemic to add to the mix!  Not only do you need to buy new shoes, masks and stationery (I'm not even talking about the kids now ), but there are wardrobes to be rearranged, doctor appointments to make and oh yeah, a business to run!  I know you're busy and I know you have your hands full spinning 10 different plates at the same time. I hear you, I do too.

 

Here’s the question though: How do you get through times like this without feeling overwhelmed?

 

Here’s the answer: With a clear understanding of your priorities and where you need to focus your energy. Going further, you then need to turn those priorities into a set of actionable, achievable and trackable goals that will provide you with direction, focus and a path to follow towards more money and a life that is happy, satisfied and fulfilled.
