Day 20 of 31 Days of Wellbeing... So many of us fall into the trap of people pleasing. We are so keen to please, that we become afraid to disagree with someone...afraid of admitting the films we truly enjoy because we know the others think differently....scared of showing our real opinions at work...or maybe it's … Continue reading 31 Days of Wellbeing: Day 20
Comparison is truly the bloody thief of joy! I, amongst many others, am terrible for this. Only yesterday, I was running further than I have gone in months (rather slowly mind!), and I was beating myself up because other people were overtaking me. Why wasn't I praising myself for running further than usual instead? It got me … Continue reading Boost of the Day
Love this quote from the really inspiring Davina McCall's new book 'Lessons I've Learned' - making me very tempted to buy the whole book and she clearly has a lot of wisdom to share!

I went for a run tonight as I am training for a 10k race in a couple of weeks, and I beat my personal 5k record. What a great feeling when you beat yourself!

Don't define yourself by the past. Today defines you - so take this opportunity to start again.
Love yourself and you will teach others to do exactly the same. Teach others to treat you with respect and love by showering yourself with care and affection. If you do not learn to love yourself, how can you expect others to? I created this website because I understand how important self love is to happiness! … Continue reading Boost of the Day #173: Show them how to love you
I have spent many years of dating (mostly) men who made me anxious and miserable, and now I am in a happy relationship I can see what my issue was. I chose partners who were not ready for commitment. The ones who would be charming when we spent time together, but who were not that interested … Continue reading Boost of the Day #172: Be someone’s priority
I love it when a Pixar or Disney film has strong, uplifting messages behind it. Brave is one of those films and this quote is a brilliant reminder that we are the managers of our own life. No, you cannot control everything that will happen to you, but you can choose how you react and deal with … Continue reading Boost of the Day #171: Brave
