30 day miracle morning.

As I’ve almost finished “The Miracle Morning” by Hal Elrod, I’ll be starting my ‘miracle morning challenge’ tomorrow, Monday 12th March. This is what my morning routine will look like for the next 30 days:

5am: wake up + drink water

5-5:30am: write in my journal (more on this on my post Morning Pages)

5:30-6am: prayer, meditation, affirmations + visualisation

Waking up at 5:30am

For the last 7 days I’ve been getting up at 5:30am. Yes, that’s right. Half five in the morning. As soon as my alarm rings I get up, switch on the light and shake off any sleepiness.

It hasn’t been easy, that’s for sure, and I know it sounds quite extreme, but I did it because I wanted to see how beneficial it would be and if it could make me more productive. In short, it has. And I would definitely encourage you to give it a try!

Video of the month

I just wanted to share a clip that kept me motivated throughout January. I watched this video a few times each week and generally had it playing in the background as I ate my breakfast or got ready in the morning. Best of all it’s only 6 minutes long. Enjoy!

Morning Pages

I’ve recently started this new thing called ‘Morning Pages’. Basically, the first thing I do after my alarm rings is write. I write and write until I’ve filled three whole pages in my notebook.

The purpose of the ‘Morning Pages’ is to provide some clarity, encourage you to be honest with yourself and unblock your creativity. I quite like writing every morning now because: I’m able to address issues that I would otherwise ignore Continue reading

Keeping the faith in 2018: new year, new goals!

I’ve decided that my motto for this year will be “Keep the faith”. That means that no matter what happens in 2018 I will keep believing that great things are ahead and always remain hopeful. As with every year I have chosen specific goals that will help to expand my potential, bring more peace into my life and help me to see the world from a different perspective.
Towards the end of 2017 I became very lazy and idle, and I think it might have been because I was overambitious and gave myself too many goals to achieve and too many things to focus on throughout that year.

End of Day 2: Introduction to Life Coaching

My 2 day ‘Introduction to Life Coaching’ with The Coaching Academy is now all done and I literally feel like my mind has opened up to a brand new way of thinking, living and being.

The Coaching Academy

The day was split into two parts. During the first half of the day we looked at personal beliefs and what effect they have on our behaviour. In general, beliefs can be categorised in two ways: they either prevent from taking action or they empower us to take action. Most astonishingly, for many of the beliefs that we hold, we aren’t even aware that we have them as they are so deep-rooted and ingrained in us; in short, they are subconscious beliefs that have never (or rarely) been challenged during our lifetime.

End of day 1: Introduction to Life Coaching

Simply put, today was absolutely amazing. I finished Day 1 of my ‘Introduction to Life Coaching’ and I feel extremely inspired and super, super excited for the future.

The seminar was run by The Coaching Academy who offer various programmes to train people to become life coaches within a specific field e.g. coaching for the youth, small business coaching or coaching within the corporate world.

I didn’t have many expectations prior to today. I came to the seminar with an open mind, hoping to gain some new techniques that could facilitate my own personal development and boost my motivation; and I definitely wasn’t expecting the day to be half as engaging or inspiring as it was.
