Having a strong morning routine can be life-changing. Sounds maybe a bit extreme, but it is absolutely the case. Setting yourself up well for the rest of the day begins when you first rise. It stands to reason that if you begin your day with intention, inspiration, positivity and a clear set of goals, you can’t help but feel more in control and on top of it than if you wake up late, groggy, grumpy and rushed. But what if you’re not a morning person?
You might be familiar with the idea of mission statements, especially when used in a business context. Simply put, a mission statement is a short written declaration of an organisation’s main goals, usually covering what they do, why and who for. It’s designed to become a kind of driving force, the ethos by which a company operates.
One of my favourite ways to connect with my own personal awesome is to utilise this idea by creating a personal mission statement, or as I prefer to call it, my Big Life Ethos.
Meditation has long been known to be beneficial to your health. Practiced for centuries by those in the know, there is now so much scientific backing to those benefits that even the most sceptical couldn’t doubt it’s effectiveness: Meditation has been proven to help reduce blood pressure, improve heart rate, relieve stress and anxiety, boost your mood, improve sleep and even help ease chronic pain. Not to mention the boom-massive spiritual effects such as increased awareness and understanding of self, mindfulness, harmony, and connection.
We all want the big life, the one that is our best fit and reflects the truest version of ourselves, but sometimes it’s hard to see the wood for the trees. Our goals can seem so out of reach, everything we are aiming for appears so hard to attain, especially if you are working on a long-term plan, it can be hard not to lose sight of the end reward and feel a little daunted or overwhelmed.
So while you are striving for the best in life, remember that even the smallest step forward is still forward and will bring you that much closer to where you want to be.

Ever feel like you just won’t cut it as a blogger? Filled with self-doubt? (why would anyone listen to me when there are so many other better-qualified people out there doing this, who have been at it for so much longer?)
Don’t fret! Sounds like you could just be suffering from a touch of Imposter Syndrome…This is a psychological problem which can strike anyone at any time, landing the sufferer flailing in the huge lagoon of I-am-inadequate-and-incompetent, and standing alone in the desolate expanse of I-shall-be-exposed-as-a-fraud land.
