Little tips & links as we flow into Spring

How are you feeling as we flow into Spring & things gently unfold.   This photo is from the wilds of Bristol in the UK, it kind of captures the everchanging landscape of the weather and world I think. How are things where you live? 

My little thoughts for flexibility  

How flexible are you when things are out of your control? Interesting discussions with clients around this and it’s useful to explore as the path ahead is likely to have areas we can control, and areas we can’t. The key , I believe is being really clear on what we would like to happen, feel and become with what we can control.  And understanding how to manage our emotions, losses and fears around what we cannot control.  Have a journal with it and see how you get on.  Any questions or shares do let me know. 

Here’s 4 little tips to help during chaos, I hope one helps you: 

  • Smile, find a moment of joy in the chaos, however small as it will pass. 
  • Nurture your relationships, communicate clearly, value yourself and those around you, add value. Nurture your mind and body, good food, sleep, thoughts and mindfulness.  
  • Open your mind to opportunities that wouldn’t be there if the chaos hadn’t happened, be flexible, adapt and grow. I find keeping a list of things you want to action this year can help to re visit when you can’t do what your priority was. 
  • Walk tall, lengthen your posture and take some head space to create your flow through the chaos – often in times of stress, and/or bad weather we hunch ourselves up, forget to breathe and stand tall.  Changing this makes a massive difference to how you feel overall, so check in with your posture as you read this. 

Happy days, let me know how you go, and if you need support get in touch – we can help you in life in general, or for a specific race, marathon, adventure, business idea or general confidence without self sabotage.

Dare to do different if you can’t do what you want right now…. something is always possible, even if not everything.
