So there ya know….a few unknown facts about little old me
Nutrition…its for LIFE!
Im not qualified in Nutrition and I dont claim to be, I know enough to get me by but what I do know is this
Nutrition has a massive effect on Body, Mind and Spirit…both the Physical, Mental and Emotional Body is affected by Nutrition
Your diet and what you eat has a bigger effect on you than you can ever imagine
We all need to eat properly to be able to function at our best…plus medication doesn’t replace real food (now I know in some cases medication is a must…BUT in a lot of cases Nutrition really can be the answer)
Tiredness, Depression, Muscles Aches, Fatigue, Headaches (etc) can all be affected my Nutrition….but they can all be helped with a proper nutritious diet (alongside sleep and hydration)
Pay attention to what you eat and how you feel…notice a pattern?? The food and mood connection is massive…and we sometimes dont see how certain foods can make us feel a certain way….if you notice after eating a certain food that u have a specific feeling/body feels a certain way – then try taking it out and see if you notice a difference. Keep a food/mood diary and see if you notice a pattern
Only eat food that brings you and your body goodness, energy and brings that light inside your body.
Eating crappy/sugary foods? Takeaways? Fizzy Drinks? Greasy Food? Crap?….notice afterwards you can feel heavy/sluggish/bloated/bad skin/mood changes/guilt??? YEP Thats the affect nutrition can have on you
The connection between nutrition and US and a whole goes so much deeper than :”weight loss” so so soooo much deeper and the sooner ask connect to this, the better
Fuel your body with the right stuff and watch it change your life
p.s if you are struggling…please seek help from a dietician for a fully qualified nutritionist (please always check their credentials)
Why cant we just Say Thank You
Why cant we say Thank You??
Lets admit it, we all do it, even me….and when i do it I just wanna slap myself because I think “why have you just done that”
Why cant we take a compliment/a gift/a kind word?
Why do we struggle with just accepting it and saying “thanks”?
Person: “you look fab/I love that top/You hair is amazing”
Us: “Oh no Look at my skin/oh this old thing/oh are you messing its a show it needs doing”
Get what I mean??
Why cant we just accept a compliment and accept that a person is wanting to say something nice/kind/positive to us and make us feel good…for all we know it may have taken them a lot to say and then we just go and knock them down?
The more we invite and accept compliments/abundance into our lives – the more it will keep appearing .
If we keep brushing off compliments and rejecting them, if we keep saying “too good to be true or I cant believe it” when it comes to abundance and kind words form others….soon we wont have any of that in our lives.
You see thats how the universe works….it listens, listens to what you are saying to yourself and others…
Make sure your thoughts and words echo what you really want
How about next time someone gives you a compliment or gifts you something just simply say “Thank You” with a smile
Meditation….do you do it?
Meditation is an approach to training the mind, similar to the way that fitness is an approach to training the body.
What is meditation?
Meditation isn’t about becoming a different person, a new person, or even a better person. It’s about training in awareness and getting a healthy sense of perspective. You’re not trying to turn off your thoughts or feelings. You’re learning to observe them without judgment. And eventually, you may start to better understand them as well.
There’s no such thing as perfect meditation. Sometimes your focus will wander or you’ll forget to follow your breath. That’s OK. It’s part of the experience. What’s most important is to meditate consistently. It’s one of those things where the journey is more important than the destination.
It’s extremely difficult for a beginner to sit for hours and think of nothing or have an “empty mind.”….I think thats hard for anyone to be honest
If relaxation is not the goal of meditation, it is often a result.
In Buddhist philosophy, the ultimate benefit of meditation is liberation of the mind from attachment to things it cannot control, such as external circumstances or strong internal emotions. The liberated or “enlightened” practitioner no longer needlessly follows desires or clings to experiences, but instead maintains a calm mind and sense of inner harmony.
HOW TO MEDITATE: SIMPLE MEDITATION FOR BEGINNERS
This meditation exercise is an excellent introduction to meditation techniques.
- Sit or lie comfortably on a Chair or Cushion
- Close your eyes.
- Make no effort to control the breath; simply breathe naturally.
- Focus your attention on the breath and on how the body moves with each inhalation and exhalation. Notice the movement of your body as you breathe. Observe your chest, shoulders, rib cage, and belly. Simply focus your attention on your breath without controlling its pace or intensity. If your mind wanders, return your focus back to your breath.
- Dont worry if thoughts come and go – as they will…allow them to but always come back to the breath and dont try and control your thoughts.
Even just 5 mins a day is a great starting point, if like me you find sitting there in silence just listening to your own breath and trying not to focus on the “thoughts”…why not try guided meditation….using an app
I use “Insight Timer” its a FREE App and has tons of free guided and silent meditations, just search one you are looking for.
I like to do my meditation 1st thing in the morning before I do anything and sometimes even last thing at night before sleep, I know the days when I need a double dose, but other days the morning one serves me well.
Its totally changed my outlook on life, the way my days start and how I react to situations and things in my life…it wasn’t easy to begin with I will admit it, trying to keep still and focused on well…nothing for 5 mins but now I am up to 20mins and I feel great.
The key is DONT try and block out thoughts, thats not the point, let them come….and they will eventually get quieter as you focus inwards and on the breath.
Love really is all you need
I took 30mins out today and went and sat here in St Johns Gardens….the sun was shining, people were smiling and the birds were tweeting!! The trees are sprouting green and the flowers are blooming….as I sat I observed a few wedding parties coming from St Georges Hall and getting their photos in the amazing surroundings and it got me thinking……LOVE really is all u need is it, seeing people so in love, smilong, families and friends all together celebrating the joyous love of 2 people is just wonderful!! Love literally makes the world go round and if we all spread a bit more love around….the world would be a much happier place
Love starts within and then spreads outwards….ending in the marriage and commitment!!!
As the Beatles say “all you need is love”
Spread Love and Light wherever u go
