3 Top Habits of Vibrantly Healthy, Happy People

  1. Make Vibrant habits your highest priority and develop the mindset that makes the difference.   “Vibrant health means:  High energy,  relaxed focus, wellbeing, happy feelings, strong, flexible & cardio fit, enthusiastic, generous and alive.”    Planning a balanced diet that includes plenty of raw, fresh colourful fruits, vegetables & salads, lovingly prepared and savoured will boost massive reserves of energy throughout the day, so that you are able to enjoy your time well into the evening.  Apart from including more plant based enzyme rich foods, letting go of any ‘stress habit’ means starting your day off a little earlier with an exercise, meditation or mind focusing routine.   Just as you can train a dog with rewards – you can train your mind in much the same way by associating ‘massive pleasure’ to any new behaviour you want to create.   Tell your mind what you want, not what you don’t want:  “Vibrant health & energy is available to me today.”   WRITE IT DOWN – soak it in.    You can literally rewire your brain to give you what you want in as little as 21 days.   I reward myself with an energy packed breakfast that is simply delicious.    “My favourite treat breakfast includes cherries and sweet berries with a mouthwatering selection of my favourite passion fruits.     I include eating mindfully, savouring each juicy, blissful, naturally sweet mouthful.  With this one action, I am honouring my body, energy and life with immense gratitude.”
  2. Time is your most valuable resource.  Success requires a decision and commitment to taking action. Deciding what is most important for the day and getting it done first, becomes its own reward.   Breaking down bigger goals into smaller managable tasks can break through procrastination.  There are different ways of choosing what to do first.  One method is getting done what you dislike the most – FIRST.   This method releases valuable energy by getting it out of the way.  Success will often include less enjoyable aspects that need to be taken care of, such as a training, studying, presenting, accounting, auditioning, even exercising for some people is a drain…and if you re-train yourself to love your least favourite bits – even better.  You can then move through your day feeling fully focused without any nagging feeling that you should be doing something else.
  3. Whatever you give your attention to grows.  So AWARENESS & INTENTION really is KEY if you want to design your life.  If you genuinely desire vibrant health, happiness, energy and success.  One mindfulness technique I like to share, includes Breath in PEACE, breath out with a SMILE.  In peace…out smile.

I hope you enjoyed my top 3 tips for creating vibrant health, happiness and success with tons more energy.

3 simple tips to replace anxiety with intuition

Here are my simple tips to replace anxiety with intuition

What is Intuition?   Your intuition is a kind of sixth sense, or gut instict, which will guide you towards things that help you to learn and grow along a successful path.  Whatever deeper purpose you have chosen to experience and contribute on Planet Earth, will become available to you and unfold.  As well as having access to the brain’s intuition based on all your experiences, you have access to a vast ocean of spiritual intuition beyond the logical or emotional ‘beta’ brainwave mind.

What is Anxiety and how is it a problem for you?  Anxiety is understood to be “false fear appearing real”.  In other words, it is an ‘imagined’ fear that we make up in our mind, based on past experiences and project them into the future.  Anxiety is therefore  an ‘imagined concern’ about something that hasn’t yet happened and might never happen.  It IS a problem for you because fear wakes up your ‘amygdala’ activating fear and aggression, so you lose a calm, capable perspective.

Negative effects of Anxiety   Anxiety blocks performance by reducing inner calm, creativity and concentration.  Anxiety shuts down your intuition as your intellect can be manipulated by fear.

Replacing anxiety with intuition

  1. Letting go of the past and future is the first step to moving away from anxiety.
  2. Replace anxiety provoking questions for calm, capable, confidence creating questions.  For example, instead of “what if I fail, or I’m useless/not good enough?”  replace with “I am enough, I’m fine, I can give it a go, or I’m improving”
  3. Practice being mindful in the ‘now’ by reserving 5-20 mins of time for meditation practice.  Mindfulness is even easier to slot into your day because it simply relies on your ability to take 50 or so conscious breaths throughout the day.

Benefits of Meditation is a practice of slowing down your brainwaves from beta to alpha, so that you have the space to STOP – PAUSE – LISTEN…to an inner stillness with greater access to your intuition.  Some meditation styles meditate on a question.  This is Quality ‘you’ time – and as you focus on your breath, word or phrase, question or imagery, you will be accessing a calm space of hightened intuition.   If this is new for you, your thoughts might speed up at first but within a few days, at the most a week with daily practice of two twenty minute sessions, you will be surprised and delighted with measurable progress.   Not only will you have reserves of vibrant energy available, you will have more in control of stress, anger and depression with hundreds of scientifically validated benefits that enhance contentment, inner peace and happiness.

Mindfulness is the practice of being aware of your thoughts, body and feelings in present moment awareness. In other words, accessing the ‘Power of Now’.

WHEN TO SEEK PROFESSIONAL HELP  If you feel stuck with anxious thoughts that spoil your inner peace, relationship happiness or confidence, there are great techniques available that can replace fear based beliefs or post traumatic stress symptoms.

10 Tips to Boost Positivity

 “A Miracle is a shift in perspective”  Marianne Williamson

Changing just one negative belief to a positive belief can change your life”.     How do you think your life would improve if you believed ‘everything will turn out for the best’.   You may know someone who has the ability to turn any problem into a solution, any crisis or setback into an opportunity for reflection, greater awareness and even greater achievement, inner peace and happiness.   “All problems are problems of the imagination and all solutions are solutions of the imagination.” Christopher Howard

1. Mindfulness:  The following is an exercise that gives you power over your moods with control over your reactions.  If this is entirely new to you, have a little contest with your friends/colleagues, or just yourself:  The rules:  A whole day with no moaning, whinging, criticising, complaining.  No blaming, defending or excuses – Just enjoy with curiosity a ‘relaxing’ and very ‘interesting’ awareness.   Could be amusing?   Let me know how you get on…

2. Playful    When was the last time you played?  As a child?  Last year?   What would happen if you spent a whole day taking life much less seriously.  Try it and see.     There is a lovely little family saying: “those who play together, stay together.”  If you are a parent:  you will be giving your kids the best gift if you devote some time to play with them – it helps to find something that you can genuinely enjoy too.

3. Nature  Research published in 2013 in the journal Global Environmental Change, found that people are significantly happier in natural environments.   Look for ways to get out doors in the coming week – notice how much better you feel.

4. Chocolate  Swiss researchers found that eating 1.4 ounces of dark chocolate every day for two weeks reduced stress hormones, including cortisol, in people who were highly stressed.  If your weight is healthy and you have a friendly relationship with food, a little of what you fancy can be the perfect antidote to lifting your mood.

5. Music & Dance   Studies  in the Journal of Positive Psychology, reported students who listened to “happy” music, experienced elevations in mood.  Why do you think the shops and restaurants play music?  You can also lift your mood whilst dancing.  This is one of my personal favourites.

6. Happiness Notebook    Studies have found a strong correlation between feeling thankful and happiness.  This single task has been found to ease depression.   Choose anything you can genuinely be thankful for,  as research has proven that in as little as 21 days this habit will positively affect your mood.   An attitude of gratitude is one of the key ingredients to increasing happy feeling hormones.

7. Take 10 ~Are you Feeling irritable? It could be a sign of sleep deprivation, or stressful habits.    Just 15 minutes of meditation will improve your mood.

8. Volunteer/Helping Others  Researchers from the University of Exeter found that volunteering and helping others can boost happiness, ease depression and create fulfilment.   People feel healthier and happier when they are making a positive difference.  Self worth also improves.

9. Brighter Side    Looking at the ‘sunny’ side of a situation can change everything. It’s your perspective that predicts whether you will be a happy or a lonely bitter person.

10. Start something new – begin something/anything – just do something different!  When I feel overwhelmed – I declutter an area, my bag, or drawer. I might clean out my car or declutter my filing on my computer or clear my desk in my office. This method always gives me a boost of energy.

Always be learning something new – browse through U-Tube, begin a new fitness or dance class, a new book, discover a new hobby by trying a few things that trigger your interest.  Turn off the TV – GET ACTIVE experimenting with activities that interest you.

Why Stress Less?

5 Reasons to Stress Less

Mindfulness is the latest skill to combat stress, that helps you to become more aware, to make sure you don’t let stressful thoughts run away with you.

1. Relaxing boosts your memory and helps you to make better decisions.  Studies have shown that prolonged stress kills brain cells in the hippocampus, impairing memory and decisions. Stress is now found to increase proteins in the brain linked to Alzheimers.

2. Relaxing eases acne.  It’s a vicious cycle: You’re stressed about that presentation at work, so you break out, and then you’re stressed about the breakout!  Stress increases sebum that can clog the pores in acne prone skin.

3. Relaxing keeps you safe from depression. The prolonged presence of the stress hormone cortisol can reduce levels of serotonin and dopamine triggering depression.

For tuition on Stress relief and Stress Management, book a private session to begin a relaxation practice that suits your personality and lifestyle: EFTMeditation, Mindfulness activities and  Relaxation recordings.

4. Relaxation improves your mood and relationship happiness.  You will feel less snappy, more chilled and in control of your choices with greater ease.

5. Stress makes you fat around your tummy.  Stress causes your body to produce cortisol which gets converted into fat if you do not exercise it off.

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness

In case you think Mindfulness is a bastion of hippiedom, The US military offers marines mindfulness training before they are deployed, in recognition that it is an effective form of mental discipline.   “Mindfulness has been shown to help those suffering from depression to manage their emotions better and dwell less on negative memories and feelings.”  Mark Leonard, Oxford Mindfulness Centre.

Mindfulness teaches you to be present in the moment rather than being distracted about the past or projecting into the future.  It is a simple habit of awareness as you move through your day.  Despite it being incredibly simple, a stressed person will find it very difficult to let go of plotting and planning events of the day.

When people feel stressed, the part of the brain associated with “fight or flight” – the amygdala – fires up, reducing the brain’s ability to cope.  Modern crises such as a deluge of work –related emails or a clash of personalities are complex and require flexibility and emotional intelligence.  But in its primitive state of high alert, the brain fixates on the immediate problem rather than thinking strategically and seeing the bigger picture.

Mindfulness has proven benefits that increase calm, a feeling of ‘lightness’, creativity and wellbeing. Regular practice brings your system back into balance: reducing stress hormones, slowing down your heart rate and blood pressure, and relaxing your muscles.

In addition to its calming physical effects, research shows that mindfulness increases energy and focus, combats illness, relieves aches and pains, heightens problem-solving abilities, and boosts motivation and productivity.
