Overcome any obstacle

Life can throw us many obstacles, so it makes sense that there are also many ways around them. There’s no one size fits all.

We are all different and so our goals and the obstacles on the way to achieving them will  be different.

Often amongst these obstacles, can be the one of getting distracted from our original goal. This can happen in effort to fit in with what others are doing or what we’re told to be achieving.

This getting distracted from our original goal can often be one of the toughest and most deceiving, because we can begin to believe that the goal is ours when it is in fact not.

Always track back to your orginal goals when you set out to achieve something and make sure you stay focused on this. Listen to your inner truth at all times, because it’s your journey and you’re the one who has to put the work in.


Once you are certain of your goal and stay focused on it, you will always find a way and it’s not for others to know or understand it, because it’s your journey.

Other obstacles can be much simpler and come down to our own self awareness, recognising fears and doubts, when to listen to them and when not to.

A useful tool for this is self reflection. It really helps to keep a journal throughout so you can stay self aware through the reflection process.


For more information on how to do this please get in touch to book an intial coaching session.

Obstacles are all in fact our guides, as when we really observe and become aware of what it is showing us we will always find a way either around, over, under or through them.

Just make sure you always keep your inner compass as your guide.

Stay at your best,

Miranda 💗

Dancing with Life

Life by its nature is always changing and sometimes unpredictable. Yet so often we may want things to stay the same.

What if instead we decided to dance with the change, and go with whatever comes our way. It can for sure make things easier and less painful.

It may be uncertain and we may not know where it will lead, but what if just for a while we decide to let life take the lead.

It may just lead us to some exciting adventures and discoveries we may not otherwise have.

Sure we may have to let go of some things or even a lot of things but just imagine what else it may bring.

I invite you today, maybe for even just one day;

Let life lead the way,

Dance with life,

Discover your unique way to play ♡

What to do without the gym

How are you finding life in lockdown, Takes a bit of adjusting doesnt it? Hopefully most of you have managed to find a way to workout without the gym, and now the dates for re-opening have been announced we’ve not too much longer to wait. Here are a few tips just in case you are struggling,to keep you going until then.

1.) Workout first thing– Whatever exercise you’re going to do, try to do it first thing. Motivation is highest when we get straight in to it, otherwise other things can distract us and take over the day.

2.) Body weight training – This time can actually be a great opportunity to explore more bodyweight training. This can be as simple as push ups and sit ups and can be adapted to any level. Always warm up and cool-down, and with some simple exercises you can make an easy to follow workout for 20 mins, 3 times a week. This alone can make a lot of difference. For more advice please get in touch.

3.) Get outdoors – This time is also a great opportunity to get back in touch with nature and enjoy all it has to offer. So try to make the most of it while you have the time. Being more in touch with nature has natural calming and mood boosting effects, in addition to those we already get from exercise. This is something we could all do with right now and comes highly recommended.

If at all you are really struggling and need some more support and advice at this time, Then please do get in touch and we will be happy to support. Stay strong and stay healthy.

5 ways to cope in difficult times

Life is full of ups and downs and its natural to encounter difficult times, particularly where there are many changes and circumstances are thrust upon us.

Many people have been finding the current time very difficult to cope with due to all the changes and limitations that have come with the lockdowns.

I wanted to reach out and offer some ways that I reccomend for coping better in difficult times.

1.) Help others. Reaching out to others may feel like the last thing you want to do when you feeling low. However it can often be the best thing, by reaching out to others to help and support, it enables you to get out of your own difficulties for a while and you make someone else feel better too. Its win-win, do your best to stay supportive.

2.) Connecting to Nature. Spending time in nature and connecting deeply to nature, is very therapeutic. It has a calming effect on the body and is proven to reduce stress, anxiety, blood pressure as well as many more health benefits. Aim to spend at least 20-30 minutes to really feel the connection and allow nature to reciprocate with you. If done regularly you will begin to really feel the benefits over time.

3.) Find a way of expressing yourself. Art can be one of the best mediums for self-expression and this can also be very therapeutic, as it allows you to transform your feelings in to something new and uniquely you. This can be in many ways, it may be painting, writing, dance or any other form that works for you. This helps best when you become completely immersed in the activity and allow it to take over for you, so you are no longer thinking; simply being.

4.) Exercise. Do whatever exercise you can and again make it work for you. Let it be something you enjoy and feel good from after. There is always something for everyone. Find what you love and then try your best to do at least 30mins to 1 hour, 3 times a week to begin with. This will help to boost your endorphins (feel-good hormones) and so physiologically really help you to start feeling better.

5.) Daily Gratitude. Gratitude really helps us to become more present and focused on the good things in life. This can be for the little things or the big things and even just writing down 5 things we are grateful for everyday can really help make a difference to our outlook. The following video is a beautiful example of the benefits of gratitude and well worth a watch. Enjoy 🙂

Positive Thinking for Life and Health

you deserve

 

How can positive thinking help you?

The answer is in every way possible, you can without doubt transform your life  by changing your way of thinking.

The difficult part is often recognising the negative thinking cycle in the first place but you can train yourself to recognise this by recognising where you are at with your feelings and responses to situations in your life.

Firstly lets recognise the effect of the opposite, negative thinking.

Negative thinking will cause or contribute to;

  • Stress
  • Self- doubt
  • Worry
  • Half- hearted attempts
  • Poor self- confidence
  • Ill health
  • Pain
  • Relationship problems
  • And More..

One thing positive thinking is not about is being perfect, that as we know is not possible and does not really exist. However it is certain that it will make your life a whole lot better and easier.

How? Well our thoughts affect a lot in our life, some would say everything.  As our thoughts affect how we feel and then the actions we take. They also affect how we choose to view others and the world around us, all of this in turn will affect the outcome of our lives.

The list above of the effects of negative thinking can act as indicators of when we are thinking negatively, they are signs that we are thinking negatively often in repetition and also in reaction to events or circumstance and one thing is for certain thinking negatively will not improve any outcome in anyway. As Zig Ziglar stated;

‘Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.’

Nothing could be more true, negative thinking can become a like a spiral that can lead us in to the depths of despair if we do not become aware of it in time. The best defence against it then is to ensure you stay in charge of your mind and feed it with as much positive thinking as you possibly can, once you begin doing this you can be sure that both your life and health will begin to improve because what you focus on you get more of,because it becomes constantly in your awareness. For example if you suffer with any form of chronic pain and you focus on this continually, the pain will fill much worse than if you choose to take your mind off it and focus on something positive. I know this because I have experienced this myself and realised the power of positive thinking over pain. In addition to this feel good hormones (endorphins) are natural painkillers.

Another major advantage is the results you can achieve in your goals through positive thinking. At the very simple level if a part of you is telling you that you cant achieve what you have set for yourself then the out come is likely to be poor because the efforts you make will be in line with your thinking. This as well as to counteract all the problems associated with negative thinking is the reason positive thinking and coaching is used in all of our health programmes. The results you will achieve whilst using positive thinking in line with a healthy lifestyle will far outreach the results you will achieve if you don’t.
