Do you sometimes feel lost?

April 12th, 2018

We get so wrapped up in other people’s issues, beliefs and ideas that we often lose sight of who we really are and what our own needs are.

We are never going to be fully effective until we sort this out and learn to love and care for our self the best.

I work with so many people who become overwhelmed by all the stuff they have to do for others and they also so often believe it is their duty to do everything else before they look after themselves.

The thing is that they are smothered by the beliefs and the fears that they grew up with. They bully themselves, telling themselves they are failures, saying sorry when anything goes wrong, even when it was nothing to do with them.

So many people are constantly helping others and even rejecting help when it is offered to them. There are times when we all need to step up and help others and there needs to be a balance where we need to allow ourselves to accept help.

Help in = help out is a good balance that should apply across all areas of our life.

The thing is that when you look after yourself properly you end up with more time and energy left to do the other jobs that need doing because you stop wasting time being anxious, indecisive and procrastinating.

Take the time to observe yourself, your behaviour, your reactions and especially what you say to yourself. Learn to be kind and helpful to you. Learn to listen to your inner voice when you are tired or overwhelmed.

The storage of food was even more important for women so they could feed their children.

Unfortunately our metabolism has not evolved to keep up with our modern life and our unconscious mind’s main job is to manage our metabolism so that it keeps us safe.

Spring will make you reflect on your weight name

Its spring and this time of year will make you reflect on your weight as you shed your winter woollies and try to dress for warmer weather.

Are you one of the many who added a few extra kilos of insulation during winter? So what do you do now?

Diets do not work… they make your problem worse because your body believes that you are starving and makes sure it stores more fat after the diet finishes in case there is another famine. Repeated diets simply increase your weight over time as you...

This is why stress is so harmful

Modern lives are busy and so many of you are overworked with too much that you have to fit in all the time. There is very little time out or ‘me time” to allow you to recover.

If you are like my family, my friends and my clients you are probable often feeling overwhelmed by the constant pressure and stress.

All the information or “stuff” that arrives in your head goes to part of your brain called your hippocampus to be sorted and catalogued. Your hippocampus is your librarian.
