“You is kind. You is smart. You is important.” – Kathryn Stockett, The Help.
Today’s #TryThisThursday is simple yet profound. Treat yourself like you treat your best friend. Curb the negative internal monologue and self doubt. Replace them with positivity, kindness and epic self compassion. You are truly incredible. You are intelligent, wonderful and worthwhile. Out of anyone in this world, you yourself deserve to feel the power of your own love. Give yourself the gift of friendship for one whole day, and see how much lighter you feel come the evening. Remember, be kind. Good Vibes Only.
Today’s #TryThisThursday – Create From Clay!
You don’t need to be making incredible clay earthenware (if you can, more power to you!). Just grab some modelling clay and get going. It feels so good to create something with your hands, and the feel of clay is wonderfully grounding.
Make whatever you feel like. When you’re done, take a step back and admire. Check yourself out, and give yourself a pat on the back. You’re so creative when you get going!
It takes about 3 weeks to form a habit. So why not form a habit of happiness? This #TryThisThursday spans the next 21 days. Every morning when you wake up, think of one thing in your life that makes you happy. It could be your family, pets, what you love to eat, what you love to do… anything!
Write it down. Smile, and have a great day.
At the end of 3 weeks look back over your notes. How has starting your day with positivity affected your outlook? Have you started jumping out of the right side of the bed, ready to embrace the day?
Well…jumping out of any bed is kind of an impossibility, but you catch the drift!
Our behaviours turn into habits through the simple act of repetition. Why not foster an attitude of gratitude? It’s easy. Just start your day thinking happy thoughts, and see what an amazing abundance of positivity this attracts.
Can you believe it’s September already? We may not have much of an “autumn” here in Bahrain, but we can Pumpkin Spice Pretend, right?
This week’s “homework” can be harder than it appears! Especially when it seems like everyone on the island is on the roads at once. Traffic, kids, pets and other little details add up, and can make you later than you planned for. So, to be on time (or better yet, be early!) for appointments, we’ve found a great trick.
Plan to arrive at your destination 10-15 minutes earlier than you need to be. This gives you a nice cushion should there be unexpected delays. You feel ready and relaxed instead of rushing. So, #TryThisThursday, to be on time or early instead of late, late, late (for that very important date).
Do you have any tricks up your sleeve when it comes to arriving on time and in style? Let us know how you breeze by.
Today marks the last Thursday of August which means the end of another month and week. So for #TryThisThursday how about you take some time to clear out your emails or even your regular mail if you’d like.
Doing so will help you clear your mind and refocus your energy for the week and month ahead on what really matters. We’ve also been told that a clear mailbox means a clear mind – and we all want more of that!
