5 Ways to make a Change that Sticks

We often hear of efforts to change that are unsuccessful.  New Year's resolutions that don't make it past January etc.  Here's a great way to make a change that will stick.

Five ways to make a change that sticks:

  1. Choose something that you can donow.
  2. Choose something that you can make the decision about alone - i.e.doesn't require permission/collaboration.
  3. Choose something you can dowhere you are.
  4. Choose something you can dowith the resources you have already.

TIME and FIVE GREAT WAYS TO USE TIME

TIME AND FIVE GREAT WAYS TO USE IT….
 
One of my favourite movies is the Justin Timberlake movie “In Time” from 2012.  If you haven’t seen it, in brief, it is about a futuristic society in which people are genetically modified to “expire” on their 25 birthday – unless they are able to acquire more time credits from some means eg income or obtained from someone else’s time, thus making time a very valuable commodity indeed.  No, I think you will have to watch the movie to get what I am saying…

New Year's Resolutions


Top 5 Daily Health Habits for 2019

We wish you an awesome year in 2019.  Here are our suggested top five daily health habits for 2019.

1. Keep Hydrated
Sounds simple right.

  • Are you drinking enough water each day relative to how much you are losing?  
  • The recommended water intake for an adult is 2 - 3 litres per day.  
  • Start the day with a large glass of water (cooled boiled water is best).  
  • You may choose to add a slice of lemon (or a spoon of apple cider vinegar), 
  • Keep up the water through-out the day - if it helps, put some alarm reminders on your smart phone.

Planning - the 90 Day plan

Do you plan to achieve big things?  Weight loss, learning a new skill, running a certain distance?

Often we make grand plans to achieve something in a year or longer and if we don't achieve that goal we can be discouraged.

Sometimes just looking at a year long goal can be disheartening.  Can I really walk 10KM when I haven't walked more that a short walk before?

One of our mentors recently suggest having a 12 week (or 90 day) plan.  A 90 day plan is a good start with managing your time and tasks in achieving your goals.

2017 Christmas Calendar

Back by popular demand we have a new Christmas calendar full of inspiring, challenging and fun things to do in the lead up to Christmas.  Seasons wishes to everyone and a heartfelt thank you for your support in 2017. 


May you be happy, safe and well and all those you love enjoy the same.


Dream, conceive, believe, receive, achieve

This August, we are reminding ourselves of all that we are grateful for and all the abundance we have.  

With this in mind.....
  • have dreams, know what your burning desires are, 
  • plan (and write the plan down!) and take action
  • believe in your dreams, have faith in them and your abilities and know that there is enough abundance to go around
  • be ready to receive and recognising the opportunities (even those that follow on from sad or tragic circumstances)
  • stay focused, be resilient, stick with it and achieve your goal.

New Year's Resolution

As the dust settles on New Year's celebrations we sometimes turn our minds to New Year's resolutions.  Will they work (when they might not of in the past)? What would it look like if they did?  

I'm no expert on resolutions and their likelihood of success.  I have, however, observed a lot of people make life changes.  Quitting smoking, losing weight, eating more healthily, drinking less alcohol, quitting sugar are just some of the common intentions I've witnessed clients set.
