Say bye to perfection. 👋🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And say hello to curiosity, forgiveness and learning. 🌈 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When the day doesn’t go as planned, when you feel anxious or depressed, when you don’t stick to your promises to yourself, remember there is no thing as perfection. Some days are better and some days are challenging and they are all an opportunity to learn more about yourself. ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So go ahead. Take this moment to forgive yourself of self judgment and self criticism for not meeting your expectations and look for the ways to learn from the situation and keep on going. The rest of the day is waiting for you. 🙌🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tag a friend who might need to hear this and write an affirmation for yourself below!
We can’t measure loneliness by how many friends are at our party or a followers number on a screen. Loneliness is that deep sense that something is missing, even in a room full of people. . Listen inside to the longing for connection. Get in touch it. Befriend yourself and see what happens. 💗🌻#loneliness #connection#emotionalhealth
You know what to do. You do. And yet, you keep sitting on your hands in turmoil. Wondering if you will flounder. Thinking you don’t have what it takes. Anxious of the risk involved with being completely authentic. And yes, it is scary. But you must move through that. You owe it to yourself to move through that. God made you this way on purpose. You are unique. You have so many gifts that others in this world need. You plant seeds. You birth realizations. You embody Love. You allow others to taste divinity through your ISness. You inspire. You shift realities. You act as a grand Reminder. A teacher. A student. A friend. By holding back you are actually robbing others of your inherent presents for them. The ways they can grow simply by interacting with you, your words, your creations. Through experiencing you, people see beyond their mindsets, alter and update their personal scope, and find their own Truths. Remember that. You are a blessing to this world when you align yourself with your highest Knowing and act from that place. So let it flow. Keep your heart open. Trust where you’re going, what you’re doing, and how you move. Trust that it is in your divine purpose to keep being YOU. The world needs it. I’ll keep saying that until you remember. Until you feel it in every iota of your being. Those meant will find your message, your art, will align with it. Those not meant will fall away. And even then, they may be forever impacted by your presence, even if they don’t agree with it. That’s a lesson, too. I love you. God loves you. You love you. You create greatness. Allow yourself to share that and watch your dreams cultivate into fruition.
Let your habits open doors, not close them. Changing JUST ONE habit can have a huge impact on your life. We ALL have habits - Some are life 'promoting' (like brushing your teeth, always drinking a pint of water when waking up or doing positive affirmations at breakfast) some are life demoting (like browsing social media right before sleep, smoking or negative self talk). It isn't always about overturning your WHOLE life. That can be an overwhelming thought. A simple tweak to ONE habit can make a big difference. Changing that ONE bad habit can change your life. It can open doors and help you feel better about yourself, more confident, and have a more positive outlook on the world. It can also make it EASIER for you to achieve your long term visions and goals - That ONE habit might be creating resistance to you realising that vision. What habit can you identify now and tweak to open doors in your life? We are not saying it will be easy, but it will help you take back control. Listen to our podcast ‘The TH_NK Tank’ to hear stories from people like you who have changed their lives and taken back control.

What they feel their value is and believe they’re worthy of is reflected in their actions outward. Because all actions outward show you how they treat and what they accept for themselves. . Their actions do not reflect how they feel about you. This is what they’re capable of based on what they do/feel about who they are.
Stop judging yourself. Stop being overly critical of your life. You have the ability to rewrite your journey any way that you like. Choose a story that honors & serves your Highest good. #cocreateyourreality
What would it feel like to book your 1️⃣st client? Maybe it’s your first client, or maybe it’s your first HIGH PAYING client 💰. IMAGINE how that feels. You’re overwhelmed with gratitude as you see the invoice come through. You can’t believe it’s real, but at the same time, you knew all along that you were capable of it. Do you want to feel like this 💭? It happened to me. And it all started with BELIEF. Belief in things working out for me even when I had no reason to believe they would. Belief in myself and what I was capable of. Belief that the right people would be drawn to me simply from the energy I was giving into my business. Belief made me invest in myself. Belief made me confident on sales calls. Belief made me stand taller, go on live video, talk about my offer, and made me buy my ticket to my first ever live conference for entrepreneurial women. Belief made me my first $1,500 💸 when I was wondering how I was going to make that next payment on my credit card. What could belief do for you❓ . My group coaching program, Unsure to Untamed, has enrollment open until June 30th. DM me with the word INFO to hear more about how you can start making the money you deserve ⭐️
I can relate to bullies. When I feel mistreated or I’m not getting what I want, I can sometimes get angry. If a person is responsible for this bad feeling, I sometimes want to make them feel as badly as I do. Maybe you can relate. Feeling powerless can lead to many forms of acting out: overt violence (physical), abusive language (verbal), or more covert bullying, like starting rumours, exclusion, and gaslighting (social/psychological). Yesterday, I unfortunately witnessed all of the above from a grown adult at the skate park—something which is pretty rare these days, but still happens. I tried to remind myself that people who act this way are hurting inside, and have not developed the skills to deal with their emotions, so they fight that insecurity by trying to make others feel bad. I will admit that it hooked me for a moment, and I wanted to return in kind—this was directed to a minor; the immature and insecure parts of me wanted to make the person feel the same hurt they were trying to inflict on others. However, I’m beyond grateful that I’ve learned how to regulate those emotions and step back. I have had some incredible mentors and role models show me that there is a bigger picture, and that I ought not lose sight of it. With covert bullying, it’s easy for the perpetrator to deny or excuse their behaviour. Typically when people show this pattern, they are especially effective at making the other party feel as though they are the ones who have caused the harm themselves. The bully will act like they are the victim, while continuing their toxic behaviour. This is called gaslighting, and it can be extremely damaging to everyone involved. I think the most important thing to do is talk about it, and shed light on the fact that we all feel this way sometimes, as victims or perpetrators (whether or not we act on those feelings). Can you think of a time you’ve experienced bullying? How did it feel? What did you do? Have you ever found yourself as
leave a 💛 and your thoughts and experiences below 👇🏽 . whether it be ones that society is throwing at you or ones that you are putting on yourself, don't let them hold you back⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ when you start internalizing those labels they can became a way you start seeing yourself and start presenting yourself to others and they hinder your growth⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ for me that was the label of "shy"⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ yes i was a REALLY shy kid, shy teenager and shy adult. but as I moved into my 30s, i noticed that I wasn't as shy but it was a core part of my identity - of who I was. I was shy and there are somethings that are difficult for shy people, like meeting new people, or speaking to people etc. yes i was shy, but i wasn't THAT shy, it was the core of who i was anymore. I had to let that go so i could be the person who does go out an do those things and not use the label of "shy" to get out of things that would help me grow or my business grow!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just because we can’t “see” doesn’t mean our brain can’t. . Culturally speaking, emotional pain is highly invalidated. If we can’t “see” it then we have the power to just get over it or move along, it’s a matter of strength! These are things we would never say to anyone with a physical injury. Because it’s visible and we’re able to pinpoint the area of hurt, we are sympathetic, we allow ourselves and others the time to heal. . Turns out, emotional pains are perceived by the brain. In two separate studies, when people experienced an experimental social rejection from peers and when individuals who had recently broken up with romantic partners viewed pictures of the former partner-the anterior insula and anterior cingulate cortex of the brain activated. These areas also light up when physical pain is perceived. . As far as the brain is concerned-pain is pain! . Emotional pains are real, our minds and bodies feel it. As always, judging our healing process and bullying ourselves for not doing it well or fast enough will not help. . Instead, we can approach it from a place of compassion and ask ourselves “would I expect the same of myself if this emotional pain was a physical injury?” . Do you allow yourself the time to heal emotionally?

Peep the pajama shirt. Namaslay. So fitting for me. As I’m still wearing it at 11 am 😂 But is it really tho? Cause today my head is pounding and I have tension in my neck that’s been grinding me since yesterday and I didn’t sleep all night and I’m exhausted. I have so much to do and I don’t have time to not do it. But I’ve come to learn that when we have no time to stop and rest, that is when our body, mind and soul needs us to stop and rest the most. It’s kinda like when our phone battery is so low and we know it’s gonna die but instead of stopping to charge it we keep frantically texting away like a psycho and use up every drop of energy until the phone just shuts down and stops working altogether and we wanna throw it off the roof or something. And we get all triggered like damn phone how you gonna play me like that. 🤷🏼♀️ Yeah. That’s what our body does if we push it to the last drop. I’m feeling it today, I gotta catch some chill.

Amiable Style people move relatively slowly. In part, this is because they are casual in their mannerisms, so be prepared to spend time with them. This will help strengthen the relationship and will inevitably lead to greater effectiveness since you will understand their needs and they will become more committed to working with you. They can be relatively undisciplined in their time. Again, expect that this will be the case so you can plan for more time than you otherwise might.
Good grief! Sometimes encouragement feels like great expectations. Creative people feel like the bar for success is set super high for them, based on their talent, and failure is almost ANYTHING besides being the best. . You’ve probably heard how much talent and promise you have. Whether the pressure is coming from inside or outside of you, it can feel like a burden. . For just today can you stop giving yourself grief about where you want to be, and for just a moment, think about where you are. What are you proud of that you’ve already done?
#mindfultip Help your child focus and practice brain-body connection. 🗣🧠 Take a few mindful breaths and press the fingertips of both hands in front of you. 💨 Keep your fingertip touching and tap your thumbs together 5 times. 👍 Tap the next fingertips together 5 times keeping the other fingers still. 🖐 Continue to your pinky fingers then start again going back to your thumbs. “Tap,tap,tap,tap,tap” 🙏 When you get back to your thumbs, take a big inhale and exhale. Shake out your hands and wiggle your fingers. 👋 This is a great exercise to do before something that requires a lot of focus for kids!
What do you do when you find yourself in the throes of anxiety? I know all too well that it isn’t always possible/practical/effective to journal or meditate when you’re in the thick of an anxious episode. For me, the tell-tale signs of high anxiety are racing thoughts, a pounding heart, rapid breathing and shaking. When my anxiety feels out of control, I find that the quickest way to recentre myself is to focus on the present moment. In an earlier post I had shared three grounding techniques that I use to become more present and release any tension I may be feeling in my body. Here’s another quick and simple grounding technique for you to try when you feel intense anxiety. It’s called the 5-4-3-2-1 technique and it relies on sensory awareness to bring you back to the present moment. As a matter of fact, I feel pretty anxious right now so I’m going to practise the technique as I write this! - Start by taking a few deep breaths. - Look around you and identify 5 things you can see. For example, right now I can see a desk, a rug, a water bottle, a phone, a notebook. - Identify 4 things you can hear. Right now, I can hear the ceiling fan, a dog barking in the distance, a tap running in the kitchen, and construction sounds from the upstairs apartment. - Identify 3 things you can feel. I can feel the floor beneath my feet, the cushion against my back, the metal watch on my wrist. - Identify 2 things you can smell. My perfume and Dettol handwash (lol) - Identify 1 thing you can taste. Cardamom from the masala chai I just sipped. The intention here is to shift your focus away from racing, repetitive thoughts and towards your immediate surroundings. It definitely works for me - I'd love to know how it goes for you :) Pro tip: If I’m at home, I will sometimes light a scented candle before starting the technique. It helps me
⭐️ Attention school staff and parents ⭐️ I am now taking primary and secondary school bookings for Relax Kids classes for the 2019/2020 academic year. Classes can be booked for individual children, small group work and whole classes. I also love to offer staff relaxation and wellbeing with mindfulness workshops to support calmer classrooms. All sessions include mindful movement and games, stretching, self-massage, breathing techniques, positive affirmations and growth mindset and relaxation. Children will finish the course with a toolbox of strategies and techniques to help notice, understand and manage their big emotions (such as anger, stress, worry). Relax Kids classes are available for a minimum of six weeks and one off wellbeing workshops. Courses can be booked to cover PPA and enrichment for the entire academic year. I am also available to run after school clubs and lunchtime clubs and look forward to welcoming any new schools next year. Please email email@example.com or message this page for more information. If you are a parent of a school child and you would love to see this work in your child’s school, please do let them know. #relaxkidswithcharlotte#hertfordshireschools#emotionalwellbeing#relaxation#mentalhealth#itsoktosay
LOVE this! My partner and I were just having a conversation along these lines last night. We can't control our kids behavior, but we can control our reactions. And the way we react shapes future interactions!
Are you always thinking I'll start my fitness regime or healthy eating next week? We're all guilty of this and life sometimes gets in the way. ⠀ ⠀ Someone once said to us 'If you're not ok, how are you going to look after everyone else?' This struck a chord with us. ⠀ ⠀ Self-care can mean different things to different people. It might be starting that fitness regime, reading a book or meeting up with friends. Whatever makes you happy and allows you to relax! Some of the time we just need to stop and listen to our bodies. Self-care is so important❤ and unfortunately overlooked by so many of us in our hectic daily schedules. ⠀ ⠀ We think this quote sums it up quite nicely! Whatever you're putting off, the time is now, don't wait❤.
