Today I would like to introduce you to James McManus, my very own spinning instructor, to discuss the connection between physical health and mental health.
Being unable to make decisions will lead to you to feeling in a rut. And this isn’t just me talking from experience (although I could). Neuroscience has proven that not being able to make decisions affects in a negative way the brain circuits responsible for wellbeing (Dr Alex Korb “The Upward Spiral”).
Do you have a goal but feel stuck in achieving it? Or maybe everything is going well on all fronts except for that one thing that you just can’t seem to get right. Do you wonder why you are stuck when it does not seem to make sense? You’re not alone. Nobody has got it 100 % together. That doesn’t mean that you can’t try though.
Today I wanted to share this video from Matthew Hussey with you because I think it delivers an important message that I repeat to my clients all the time: there is hope in one good hour! Watch this video to get the full message.
Positive habits can have a massive impact on your wellbeing… if you get them right!
“Habits are the things you do when you’re not thinking about what to do.” Dr Alex Korb
The benefits of developing good habits for your wellbeing
Today I introduce you to self-care coach Sheleen Johnson to discuss how self-care can help people experiencing depression.
We covered self-care (what it is and what it isn’t), burn-out and how to prevent it, how to care for yourself when you are feeling down.
I hope you will enjoy this interview.
To reach Sheleen:
Getting 8 hours of sleep is number 1 advice on all sources relating to managing depression. But why?
Has depression ever impacted your love life? Have you ever met someone amazing, that one person that seems to be ticking all of your boxes, but for some strange reason out of the blue you start panicking? That horrible internal voice kicks in and tells you that you don’t deserve that person. That person is too good for you. That person is too amazing. You are not playing in the same league. And if you persevere you are going to get hurt. Because why would someone so amazing want to be with insecure you?
As you guys should know by now, I am a fan of personal development and all things coaching related. I have even managed to get myself certified as a life coach recently – who would have thought!
Back in April I attended the Ultimate Leadership Programme from Ed J C Smith. In one of the Q&A Ed shared with us his morning routine and told us he was starting his day every day by bouncing on a trampoline for 10 minutes.
I’ve mentioned this before, depression comes with a critical inner voice. You are being very harsh with yourself all the time, you tell yourself off for something you have done or not done, you beat yourself up constantly.
Fighting this voice is one of the most difficult things to do, especially when you are feeling low.
