For many of us, the first thing we do when we wake up is to reach for our phones and check our emails, the news or what’s been happening on social media while we sleep.By doing this, we inadvertently let the outside world in before we've even had a chance to fully wake up. Humans are not designed to have so much information bombard us as soon as we open our eyes, and our brains can find it difficult to cope. As a result, we can inadvertently trigger the stress response (fight, flight, freeze) even before we've managed to crawl out of bed, which significantly reduces our resilience.If you delay checking your phone, at least until you're out of the shower (better still, wait until you’ve had breakfast), you’ll give your brain the time it needs to acclimatise and come fully back 'online'. Adopting this one simple practice is clinically proven to reduce stress and increase your resilience.It will allow you to choose your mood and set your intention for the day rather than being at the mercy of others’ demands right from the get-go.For freebies, visit https://linktr.ee/jobanks #stress #mindfulness #mentalhealth #executivecoach #resiliencecoach #stressfree #stressrelief #stressreduction #worry #stressmanagement #resilience #mentaltoughness #dailyinspiration #motivation #anxiety #anxietysupport #inspirationalquotes #bestlife #inspirationalsayings #motivationalquotes #motivationalsayings ...

For many of us, mornings can be chaotic. However, how you start your day sets the tone for the rest of it. Creating a positive morning routine or ritual (that you stick to, even at weekends) is an excellent way to program your mind for success. Following is a list of some of the activities you could incorporate:1. Positively visualise your goals and how you’ll feel when you achieve them.2. Set your intention/outcome for the day.3. Visualise the day ahead going perfectly.4. List three things for which you’re grateful.5. Choose the mood you want to be in for the rest of the day (positive vs negative; it's a choice).6. Read a few pages of a book that inspires you.7. Practise yoga/meditation.8. Go for a 15-minute walk.9. Enjoy a wholesome breakfast.By creating a positive morning routine, you consciously decide how you want your day to be rather than being at the mercy of other people’s moods and demands.

The quickest way to achieve your goals is to model someone who has already done it. You can save an incredible amount of time, money, and energy by emulating others. It enables you to quickly discover what works and what doesn't without going through the pain of finding out for yourself.If you know someone personally, contact them, arrange coffee (you must pay!) and pick their brains. Most people will be more than happy to help (unless, perhaps, you’re going to be in direct competition with them), as it’s flattering when someone is interested in you and what you’ve achieved. If you don’t know someone personally, but you know it’s been done before, research it. We have no excuse now, as everything we need on virtually any topic is at our fingertips.Incidentally, don’t be put off if you want to start a new venture and find someone else is already doing it:1. It means that there's a market for it.2. No one will be able to do it quite like you!

If you have the idea to do, be or have something, it’s likely that you already have everything you need within you to be able to achieve it. If you didn’t, you probably wouldn’t have the thought in the first place, yet so many people fail to even get out of the starting blocks.Typically, I hear excuses like, ‘I’m waiting for the right time’ or ‘I’m waiting for a sign’. Well, here’s the thing, there’s rarely a right time, and if you’re looking for a sign, THIS IS IT! Most people fail to achieve or even begin to pursue their dreams, not because of timing, but due to FEAR. Fear of:• Failure• Being judged• Being unable to complete it• Looking foolish• Change• Hard workEveryone has fears; those who choose to feel the fear and do it anyway tend to be more successful. So when would NOW be a good time to start working on your goals?For freebies, visit https://linktr.ee/jobanks #stress #mindfulness #mentalhealth #executivecoach #resiliencecoach #stressfree #stressrelief #stressreduction #worry #stressmanagement #resilience #mentaltoughness #dailyinspiration #motivation #anxiety #anxietysupport #inspirationalquotes #bestlife #inspirationalsayings #motivationalquotes #motivationalsayings ...

How often have you made a New Year’s resolution or set a goal without achieving it? It’s believed that up to 92% of New Year goals get abandoned by January 15th!We typically fail to achieve what we want to do, be or have because:1. The goal isn't 'authentic' (see MM No 52).2. The 'WHY' isn't big enough, i.e. the reason for wanting the goal(s) isn't big or inspiring enough.3. You believe that you don’t have enough resources, e.g. time/money/expertise, etc.4. You have limiting self-beliefs or an old ‘story’ about why you can’t be, do, or have that ‘thing’.5. It’s outdated, so you no longer want it, usually because you've taken too long over its achievement. #stress #mindfulness #mentalhealth #executivecoach #resiliencecoach #stressfree #stressrelief #stressreduction #worry #stressmanagement #resilience #mentaltoughness #dailyinspiration #motivation #anxiety #anxietysupport #inspirationalquotes #bestlife #inspirationalsayings #motivationalquotes #motivationalsayings ...

One of the main differences between those who succeed and those who don’t is ACTION. Successful people typically try more things over a longer period than their ‘unlucky’ counterparts. Those who succeed choose not to give up when they experience failure. Instead, they keep going, trying different alternatives, knowing that the more consistent and persistent action they take, the better the results will be. Edison made 10,000 lightbulb prototypes until he discovered one that worked. J K Rowling was initially rejected by twelve publishing houses, yet, thankfully, both kept going until they achieved their goals.If you take consistent action but don't achieve your goal, it doesn't mean that you're a failure or that what you did wasn't good enough; it simply means you need to try something else.If that doesn’t work, try something else and keep trying until you find a solution. Many people give up just on the brink of a breakthrough; avoid that being you.#emotionalintelligence #mindfulness #mentalhealth #executivecoach #resiliencecoach #stressfree #stressrelief #stressreduction #stressmanagement #resilience #mentaltoughness #dailyinspiration #wellbeing #wellbeingtraining #mentalwellbeing #mentalwellness #positivity #positivequotes #inspiration #inspirationalquotes #bestlife #evenbetteryou #happylife #livehappy #selfhealers#procrastination #selfcareisnotselfish #selfcare ...

Creating a plan for each of your goals is critical if you're serious about achieving them. It should have clear steps/actions, together with workable timescales. A goal without a plan is unlikely to happen, as ‘life’ will take over. 1. Create a top-level, yearly plan containing everything you want to accomplish in that year (you don’t need to wait until January to do this – you can start anytime). It doesn’t have to be detailed; headings are adequate.2. Distribute your goals evenly over the four quarters; that way, you won't feel overwhelmed. Also, our internal reward system works better with shorter-term goals.3. Take your goals for the first quarter and break them down into 3 x monthly targets.4. Break your monthly goals down into a more detailed 4-weekly plan. You may also wish to do the same each week for daily activities.#emotionalintelligence #mindfulness #mentalhealth #executivecoach #resiliencecoach #stressfree #stressrelief #stressreduction #stressmanagement #resilience #mentaltoughness #dailyinspiration #wellbeing #wellbeingtraining #mentalwellbeing #mentalwellness #positivity #positivequotes #inspiration #inspirationalquotes #bestlife #evenbetteryou #happylife #livehappy #selfhealers#procrastination #selfcareisnotselfish #selfcare ...

To achieve your goals, they must be 'authentic', i.e. not things you or someone else THINKS you should have, but because they are important to you. Authentic goals are not just about achieving ‘something’; they are about how you grow and the emotions you experience during the process, e.g. sense of achievement/fulfilment etc. When goal setting:1. Make your goals SMART – Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time-bound. Achievable time scales are critical; a goal without an end date is a dream!2. Be clear on WHY you want them. If the WHY isn’t big enough, it’s unlikely that you’ll follow through. You may need to dig deep on this one, but it's critical. Establishing your WHY will also help you identify if the goal is authentic.3. Sharing your goals with someone else increases the chances of achievement. Consider finding an accountability partner – someone else who also has tangible aims. #emotionalintelligence #mindfulness #mentalhealth #executivecoach #resiliencecoach #stressfree #stressrelief #stressreduction #stressmanagement #resilience #mentaltoughness #dailyinspiration #wellbeing #wellbeingtraining #mentalwellbeing #mentalwellness #positivity #positivequotes #inspiration #inspirationalquotes #bestlife #evenbetteryou #happylife #livehappy #selfhealers#procrastination #selfcareisnotselfish #selfcare ...

If you don't consciously create your life, you can't be surprised if it doesn’t turn out as you’d hoped. Everything you have right now results from your past thoughts, decisions and actions; your life hasn’t just ‘happened’ to you. So, rather than leaving your future up to chance, instead, design it:1. Decide precisely what you want to do, be or have. Write it down, stating in the positive, i.e. what you want rather than what you don’t want.2. Brainstorm all the actions you could take to achieve your goals – avoid editing at this point. 3. Analyse each potential solution critically, and choose the most viable ones. 4. Set achievable timescales and immediately take action on at least one thing from each category; by doing that, you’ll trigger your R.A.S. to be on the lookout for items related to your goal. 5. Regularly check your progress and revise your plan or actions if necessary. #emotionalintelligence #mindfulness #mentalhealth #executivecoach #resiliencecoach #stressfree #stressrelief #stressreduction #stressmanagement #resilience #mentaltoughness #dailyinspiration #wellbeing #wellbeingtraining #mentalwellbeing #mentalwellness #positivity #positivequotes #inspiration #inspirationalquotes #bestlife #evenbetteryou #happylife #livehappy #selfhealers#procrastination #selfcareisnotselfish #selfcare ...

Imposter syndrome is something pretty much everyone experiences at some point. In my experience, there are two primary triggers:1. Finding what you do easy, which makes you think that you must be doing it wrong, and at some point, you'll get found out. Usually, this is because you grew up hearing that work should be hard. However, if you find something you love that comes naturally to you, it won't necessarily BE hard.2. You find yourself in a job or at a level of seniority that, at some point, you could only aspire to. Although you know you can do it on one level, your insecurities come to the surface, and you literally ‘wait to be found out’.Imposter syndrome is typically a combination of our early programming, the stories we tell ourselves, and our limiting self-beliefs. Getting curious about where your thoughts and feelings originate is a great way to understand your outdated drivers; once you’re aware, it’s easier to change to something more realistic.

There’s a huge difference between constructive feedback and constant criticism. Unfortunately, certain toxic personality types get a huge kick out of putting others down. If you’re on the receiving end of toxic behaviour, the likelihood is that you will begin second-guessing yourself or overthink things. As a result, you may even find that your confidence and self-esteem are impacted.The irony is that typically, the person doing the criticising does it because of feelings of low esteem and self-worth; putting you down makes them feel better. To counteract unhelpful criticism, plan ahead:1. Take some time out to consider how the conversation will go - you know the person, so you can usually guess what they're going to say. Forewarned is forearmed! 2. Think of some positive responses. You don’t have to be nasty, but you can be firm if you plan ahead. 3. Don’t rise to it. Instead, smile because you saw it coming all along!

Many people have different values, beliefs and rules than we do. Although it can be frustrating, it doesn't necessarily mean that they are wrong and you are right; we’re just different.For example, you may have a friend who is consistently late, which drives you crazy. If you keep getting upset and angry with them when you know that’s their default behaviour, then it's you that has the problem, not them!You can, however, decide how you want to react when it happens. If you know in advance what they are likely to do, it’s up to you to manage your emotions or put plans in place to ensure you are not negatively triggered.No one can MAKE you feel a certain way. When you feel triggered, it likely has nothing to do with the other person or current situation but everything to do with something that happened in your past that got encoded in your autonomic nervous system. Remember, we're all doing our best based on our current level of consciousness and awareness.#emotionalintelligence #mindfulness #mentalhealth #executivecoach #resiliencecoach#stressfree #stressrelief #stressreduction #stressmanagement #resilience #mentaltoughness #dailyinspiration #wellbeing #mentalwellbeing #mentalwellness #positivity #positivequotes #inspiration #inspirationalquotes ...

Conflict often occurs when we have the same values as someone else but different rules around how we ‘live’ those values. Our ‘rules’ typically come from generations of conditioning. However, it doesn’t mean that ours are right and others are wrong; they’re just different. The next time you find yourself locking horns with someone, but you know you have the same values, e.g. loyalty, trust, and integrity take a closer look at your rules – likely, you’ll find that they are different. The good thing about rules is that you can change them. You don’t have to continue living with outdated ones that no longer serve you; simply make new ones. Remember, compromise is vital in any relationship, and as long as your values are similar, the rules you apply to them may not be as important as you think. #emotionalintelligence #mindfulness #mentalhealth #executivecoach #resiliencecoach#stressfree #stressrelief #stressreduction #stressmanagement #resilience #mentaltoughness #dailyinspiration #wellbeing #mentalwellbeing #mentalwellness #positivity #positivequotes #inspiration #inspirationalquotes ...
