When did you last treat yourself?

When did you last treat yourself?

As we get ever nearer to the end of another school year, I am already thinking about the holidays and what that means to us. The summer holiday will involve lots of “Mum, can I?”,  “Mum, please”, followed by “Mum, it’s not fair” and let’s throw in more than a few “Mum,...

Morning Pages - can they really make a difference

Morning Pages – can they really make a difference

A while ago, I heard about Morning Pages but to be honest, they just seemed like a task I could do without.  They appeared to be a different way of journalling and although I usually jump on anything to help me with my own growth, I decided to pass on...

Why do I make poor choices

Poor choices – why do we make them?

Like many women of a certain age, I have tried every single diet plan there is. I know all about poor choices.  I know all about what I should be doing.  I know what I should be eating.  I know what helps me to shed weight. Here’s what I know about diets?...

Choosing Myself

Choosing Myself and Saying No

It’s been a strange few months here in Chaos in Kent.  A few months where I have realised that choosing myself does not necessarily have to be selfish.  Choosing Myself is essential if I want to have a life worth living. Choosing Myself: I made the decision last month to...

Slimpod Gold

Win a Slimpod Gold programme

Many of you will have heard me chatting or read my blogs about Slimpod.  I am a big fan of the Slimpod Gold Programme (includes the Slimpod, Fitpod and Chillpod).  I have found myself trying new things, passing on calorific treats and I even bought a bike! I know if...

What if your value was based on how kind you are?

What if, tomorrow, your value was based on how kind you are? We live in a materialistic world.  A world where people are famous for being famous.  A world where we, and our children, are constantly exposed to images of perfection, only achievable at a cost.  A world where people...

Creative

Finding my creative mojo

One of my goals for this year was to find my creative mojo. I had lost it. I was writing regularly for various blogs, but this is usually based on special needs so it felt more like work and reporting than being creative. I was feeling lost, I knew there...

To eat the cake or not eat the cake

“Eat the cake.  Don’t eat the cake” – do you have voices in your head or is it just me? I doubt it is just me. Do you have conversations with yourself?  I don’t mean frightening conversations.  I mean conversations where you try to justify behaviour or talk yourself into...

Achieve goals

Achieve your goals this year in six simple steps

As Christmas disappears, most of us will be thinking about how we can achieve your goals this year. Like many of us, I am going with the old favourite – lose weight/get fit.  So what can I do differently this year because, let’s be honest, I didn’t mange this last...

Miracle Morning

Miracle Morning or Major Mayhem

I have recently discovered yet another dippy hippy activity – my husband’s words, not mine.  I am talking about Hal Elrod’s Miracle Morning. Now the idea behind this is to raise early and to carry out six activities before you start your day. The morning starts with SAVERS  (an acronym to...
