Do you want to bring more authenticity and purpose into your existence? Want to live your life with intention and make the most of every minute? Sure you do! But the thing is, sometimes one of the hardest things about attempting to live a life that is true to you is fitting it in around the life you currently have.
The decision to live a life of intention, to make the most out of life, to be more you, usually requires some kind of change. More often than not it comes about as a result of feeling like we’re stuck in a rut, living a life which is less than inspiring. We go through the motions: work, eat, sleep, repeat…
Money mindset is such an important issue. I used to be pretty anti-money. You know, the root of all evil, causes more harm than good, if there was no money there would be no war, no famine, no greed…
Thing is, I’ve come to realise that none of these things are actually true:
Money is a tool, a symbol. It’s entirely neutral.
Want to live your best life? How we see ourselves plays a huge role in how our lives pan out. Our perceived characteristics and personalities are a huge player in our own destinies. It’s all a case of mindset – is yours fixed or growth?

Is self-care selfish?
I read an article recently that hinted at self-care being a selfish act. It suggested that we are too concerned with our own selves and should be focusing less energy on self-care and more on our bonds with those around us. Now, I am as happy and willing to build connection and bonds with those around me as the next person, but if I am in a bad place at that time, then they aren’t gonna be getting the best of me…and isn’t that worse?
Are you interested in using personal affirmations to effect change or growth but not sure where you should start? Maybe you’ve heard about the positive life-changing effects they can have, but don’t know what you’re supposed to do, or perhaps you’ve given it a go and can’t get over how silly it feels, or can’t convince yourself that what you’re telling yourself is true?
Well, fear not friend! This step by step guide for beginner’s will take you through exactly what an affirmation is, how they work, how to create meaningful affirmations which don’t feel icky to you, and how best to utilise them to create positive change in your life.

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.
