Happy June to you, I hope this month unfolded well for you?
What have you been up to this month, and where in the World?
As things continue to change and evolve around the world, be mindful of what you need to be okay, and respectful of those around you. If I can support you with exciting plans, anxiety, trauma, stress, wellness, adventure plans or anything, don’t be afraid to reach out and see what’s possible.
Our daily habits mould us (Atomic Habits talks about this, and author James Clear’s newsletter is worth a sign up), so be mindful of the habits you are creating and thoughts you are thinking. I don’t get this ‘right’ the whole time by a long stretch, but the awareness and commitment is key to evolving in chaos. And opportunities, hope and possibility always lie in chaos, and less often in the moments of joy, which are just this, joy (to be shared and valued deeply).
1st June was Global Running Day, something which many people took up during lockdown…. have you carried on or started something different? Here’s some good links and posts from 2020 when I was interviewed by Jacyln Ricchio Stover, for her running podcast, you can listen here. She asked me a couple of questions I’ve never been asked before which put me on the spot! Let me know if you listen. I’ve been doing some tips for Shock Absorber, the first one is here and the next ones coming in June and testing out my new Mizuno trainers which caused quite a discussion over what shoe is best… you are welcome to share your thoughts!
If you would like support with Autumn training plans, core and strength or mindset and motivation pop me a message.
June’s wellness check in to action…. the open road ahead (pic below in Scottie Land).
I shared this in May, but had so much positive feedback, I wanted to include in this month’s blog again. Make the time over the next couple of days to do this quickly and simply – if you did May’s you can reflect on the changes. If you need support, just pop me a message and let me know how you are flowing with it.
Put today’s date & time top the page:
1. Your Mind Body Check in…
– How are you feeling, energy, movement, posture?
– How is your brain, mood, thoughts, stress?
– How is your sleep, depth, quality?
– How is your digestion, cravings, hydration?
– How is your digital time, conversations, recharge time?
Score out of 10, and/or write comments
Choose 3 specific areas to change or focus on for the week ahead and review every week if time.
Put today’s date and time, mood at top of next page
2. Your Monthly Reflection and Focus to Flow Forwards
– What have you loved, felt happiness about in the last month?
– What have you overcome and learned in the last month?
– What are you resisting or committing to?
This month: – What are your 4 priorities to make happen, how, why?
– What will you decide and commit to changing habit or thought wise?
Letting go and growth
– Who will you connect with, ask for help/give support?
– Why does this matter to you?
– What, who and where relaxes you, make time for this
Write it down, reflect and then commit
Be specific, simplify to one thing if you’re overwhelmed, get your family and friends involved, and have fun with it.
Repeat this every month and notice the patterns which come up, the growth and change and celebrate each month. Being kind and courageous with yourself. You matter. Journalling, pen and paper is proven to help calm your thoughts, focus your mind and grow your intention to change. Change is uncomfortable, but to change we have to change. Give it a go for 3 weeks or months to give it a chance and I promise you will be surprised.
I will be running our Align you Autumn 2022 & Yoga Autumn Nidra in Sept/Oct time, online and possibly in person in Bristol, London or/and Edinburgh – if any of these appeal to you, do let me know.
Connection is key in creating structure in the chaos, let us help you, reach out.
