We suffer more in our imagination than we do in reality

Ain’t that the truth. We spend so much of our lives ruminating on past hurts or perceived failures, or worrying about the future. Our brain literally doesn’t know the difference between reality and imagination. Try this little exercise right now. Imagine taking a slice of lemon and biting into it. What happened in your mouth? Did your saliva increase? Did your cheeks tighten like there was a sour taste there? Our body actually has physiological reactions to whatever our brain…

Try this to release past hurts

We all have emotional baggage from our past that holds us back from achieving our goals and being our best self. One of my favourite things to do is to help others uncover what’s holding them back so they can become the best version of themselves. Out of the hundreds of tools I’ve learned along the way, forgiveness work is my number one go-to if I’m stuck. The first forgiveness technique I learned was taught to me by my best…

Are you being your true authentic self?

“I am what I think others think I am.” Read that a few times and notice the power (and truth) in that statement. We live in a world based on a perception within a perception.

A lot of us in relationships can get stuck into blame and victim mode when things aren’t going…

Pain is part of life; suffering is optional

We all go through painful situations in life – it’s an inevitable part of the journey of living. But suffering is a human condition and one that we do to ourselves.  We obsessively think about things that happened in our past, that we did or were done to us. We overthink all the things we believe are going wrong in our lives. And by doing so, we forget how magnificent our life really is. What we focus on, we get…

How to navigate your shitty thoughts

Around 80% of our thoughts are negative.  Does that number surprise you? In my twenties I did some volunteering as an Appropriate Adult for vulnerable adults being interviewed by the Police. (Side note: a lot of my mates will have a giggle at me having the title “Appropriate Adult”) 😆 As part of that training we learned about mental health and anxiety provoking thoughts that can lead to behaviour change during interviews. As homework we were told to pay closer attention…
