A New Perspective on Self-Care

A New Perspective on Self-Care

Self-care is far more complicated than taking a bath ... I have started to realise that for me its about making decisions that impact my future self in a positive way, and while a bath is a form of self care, it's impact can be fleeting.

Procrastinating is postponing decisions, either for yourself, or someone else - even if that someone else is actually you, the you-in-the-none-too-distant-future. 

So I have been asking myself, asking the current version of me, what would future-version-of-me appreciate?

It's not about fancy baths or putting my feet up on the lounge with a glass of wine and putting on a face masque. It's about showing all versions of myself, past, present and future the respect that I deserve from myself. 

100 Ideas to Nurture Your Wellbeing

100 Ideas to Nurture Your Wellbeing

To inspire you filling out your own Wellbeing Bingo pages, I have come up with a list of 100 ideas for you to nurture your own wellbeing. 

Wellbeing is all the rage these days, and deservedly so. It is so critical to our ability to function and be ourselves. To be the best you you can be, you need to take care of yourself. We so often put others first. In fact, we are often conditioned as caregivers - both as family members and professionals - to care for others. We put ourselves, and our needs on the back burner. We leave ourselves to the last minute. We often care for ourselves when we reach a point of burning out, or just before. 

In our Reflections Journal we have given you a double page spread and a game - Wellbeing Bingo.

My Top 10 Must Have Reflective Journalling Tools for your Personal Reflection Journal

My Top 10 Must Have Reflective Journalling Tools for your Personal Reflection Journal

Firstly, you don’t have to buy fancy stationery and many of the items on my list you most likely already have in your desk drawers at home or at work. It’s actually better for the environment as well as your purse if you use what you have first.  What you can do is gather them together into a collection. I like to make it feel special so that it adds up to a whole experience which is essentially the feel-good-hit that shopping often gives us.

The 10 things I have learned about reflecting using my Personal Reflections of an Educator Journal

This was my first year keeping a Personal Reflections of an Educator journal. In fact, it was everyone’s first year. This amazing (and yes I’m biased) journal was only born a year and a bit ago and it has certainly taken my life by storm.

Your Guide to Creating a Vision Board

Your Guide to Creating a Vision Board
If you have heard or seen the term “vision board” and you have wondered whether this tool works for people,  the good news is does!  A vision board is effectively what the name implies - a visual board (usually a poster, or large sheet of paper) filled with imagery, symbols, colours and quotes that reflect what you wish to create in your coming year. And for those wondering what I mean by the term “vision” - I describe it as the mental image that comes to mind when you think about what life might be like if you achieved all your desires. Once you have that mental picture in mind, it’s about finding images that collectively reflect the vision.
