So how are you feeling about Christmas? Excited or a little bit stressed and overwhelmed with everything you’ve got to do?
This year, I’m excited! Excited about spending time with family and friends but also very happy to be taking more than 2 weeks off for a well-earned break. I’m looking forward to long walks, log fires and reading, all accompanied by good food and fine wine.
It’s been an amazing year but also somewhat busy!
I’ll let you into a little secret: I’ve recently banned the word busy from my vocabulary and it’s amazing how that has created more space in my life. No one else is allowed to use it either, but perhaps I’ll tell you more about that in another newsletter next year 😉
I’ve had some amazing achievements this year especially in my business.
I’ve reached so many people and supported them in transforming their lives.
I’ve trained more than 100 coaches on how to get their own practices up and running
Finally, I’ve run numerous workshops spreading the wonders of Mindfulness!
Celebrating our successes isn’t something many of us find easy. I certainly don’t find it easy, but I’m getting better at it, which is why I’m sharing it here!
I’m also excited about 2018 as I get ready to launch The Mindfulness Gap.
This will make Mindfulness more accessible to you all. There will be an E-book in the New Year and as well as an online training programme with group support later on. I can’t wait to share it with you all….So watch this space.
But for now it’s time for a rest… so I’ll see you next year with some more of my simple tips and tools to keep you going through the New Year.
Here are 3 Tips to Remember whether you’re feeling excited or overwhelmed
- Reflection. Spend a little time reflecting on this past year. What have you achieved? Also acknowledge the not so good times but recognise what you’ve learned from them.
- Celebrate. Mark all those successes in some way. Don’t dismiss them, be proud of what you’ve accomplished. You deserve to recognise and reward yourself for them. Treat yourself to that thing you’ve wanted for a while, share it with someone who will be thrilled for you or toast yourself quietly with a glass of bubbles.
- Visualise. Spend some time looking at what you’d like to achieve for 2018. Be bold, dream bigger and know that you can have anything you want. All you have to do is believe that it’s a possibility. Success isn’t reserved for the few, it’s for everyone to taste, you’ve just got to be bold and get out there to claim it!
Perhaps 2018 might just be your most exciting year yet!
Remember: Start small and build from there.
Happy Christmas everyone
P.S. Have fun over the festive season!
