Small Changes Equal Big Impact

Monday, September 25th, 2017

In my last blog I asked how focusing on your personal goals and aspirations had been going. I explained the importance of making sure goals are in alignment with your core values to ensure greater success.

No matter what they are, incorporating small changes into your day to day life can be a challenge. Not least because we are creatures of habit and habits can be difficult to break. Rather than trying to change or incorporate everything at once, the best way to make effective long lasting changes is to begin to introduce small changes one by one.

Let’s use an example of a change that most of us tend to struggle with: exercise. We make the decision that we want to get healthy, to feel and look better and even have more energy. We know that exercise is one of the best ways to get the results we want which, are own line with our core value of health/vitality. We know that without good health we will struggle to achieve much else.

What usually tends to happen is we get excited about this news change we’re about to make and throw ourselves into a new health and fitness routine, committing to exercising for 40 minutes every day, and eating salads and banning all snacks. Within a week many of us will have fallen of the wagon. Why? because we tried to change to much at the same times. The secret to change that sticks is to make it incremental, changing one thing at a time, embedding the habit before
moving on to the next one.

This gentle approach can work for any set of changes you’d like to introduce into your life from changing eating habits to making more time for self care or study.

Congratulations if you have begun to work on you personal goals and are already seeing results. You should give yourself a pat on the back. I’d love for you to share what changes you’ve made since the beginning of the month. If you haven’t  started to make the changes you planned remember – small changes applied consistently gets results.

It’s never too late to get started.

Celebrate Your Success

Monday, January 18th, 2010

It is often the case that mums feel like life is one long treadmill of chores, work and planning. We forget to enjoy many aspects of life such as finding time to spend with the family and taking much-needed time-out from the grindstone!

It is also true that mums don’t give themselves enough credit for the good work they do and the success they achieve in life. So here are a few typical events in life that call for the occasional ‘Time Out Treat’ (in no particular order):

  • Getting the housework done on the day you planned to do it. TREAT: a cup of tea and your favourite biscuit with your feet up.
  • Earning a promotion at work. TREAT: a night out with your partner or friends (without the kids!)
  • Getting round to booking the car in for an overdue service. TREAT: A quick catch up on the phone with a friend.
  • Helping your child understand their homework topic and they achieve an ‘A Grade’ as a result. TREAT: Quality time together.
  • Winning a new contract for your business. TREAT: A mini facial at your local beauty salon.
  • Helping a friend with a personal issue. TREAT: A long soak in the bathtub! (more…)

Severe Burnout Empowered Me To Help Others

Monday, February 9th, 2009

Tracey Wall, 40, finds helping others is the perfect way to live a wonderful life. Tracey lives in Cheshire with her husband and five year old daughter.

During a holiday on the west coast of Wales, I realised my life was not the perfect picture I envisaged it would. From the outside, everything seemed wonderful. I had a caring husband and a beautiful daughter who both loved me very much. Not only that, but I had a successful career working in management in the finance sector. With the support of my family and friends close by, life really couldn’t get much better. (more…)
