My Philosophy

There’s so much I’ve learnt over the past few years, these are the things that I really believe in and try to live by every day.

Everything in balance
I believe in blueberries & burgers and watercress & wine
Be kind to others and yourself
Do one thing a day that brings you joy
Be happy today
Choose to live a great life, no matter what it has to throw at you
Listen to your body and look after yourself

 

Everything in balance

Balance is really important to me; balance in what I eat, balance between my work and my family and balance between me time and time with friends and family. It’s hard to achieve balance in every aspect of life, all of the time, when this happens I go back to what’s important to me; me and my family.

I believe in blueberries & burgers and watercress & wine

I believe in enjoying food; I believe in being being healthy but I also believe in treating myself! So I eat my healthy smoothies, lots of nutritious vegetarian meals, and I juice regularly. But I also enjoy chocolate (the good quality stuff), I eat burgers and I definitely enjoy a glass (or two) of wine. It’s just about balance. You can read more about my foodie principles here.

Be kind to others and yourself

I believe in throwing kindness around, it’s good for your soul, and there’s nothing better than when you experience a random act of kindness from someone. But it’s equally, if not more important, to be kind to yourself. For a long time I was my harshest critic; I would be critical of my appearance, my body, what I ate, the list goes on. I’ve learnt now to be kind to myself and love myself, not in an egoistical way but to love myself and accept myself just the way I am.

“Love & compassion must begin with kindness towards ourselves” Jack Kornfield

Live for the little things

This one makes me happy! I’ve learnt to enjoy the very small things in life; it may be a chai latte at Christmas, it may be the sun shining as I walk down the road, or my son giggling. Tuning in and noticing the little things to be grateful for and finding the simple pleasures in life really make me happy.

Be happy today

I often hear people say, when I meet someone I’ll be happy, when I find a new house I’ll be happy, when I get my promotion, new job I’ll be happy … and there was a time that I used to say all of those things, I was waiting to be happy. Now it’s about being happy today, being grateful for everything I have today, not looking into the future (who know’s what’s going to happen), enjoying the life I’m living right now.

Listen to your body and look after yourself

These days we’re often stressed, running around working longs hours, juggling a family and home-life and we forget to tune into what our body’s telling us. Worst still we often ignore it, we’ll get run-down and carry on with the daily grind. Listen to what your body is telling you, if you tune in, it’ll tell you when you need to eat, what food you need and if you need a bit of rest & relaxation. Our bodies are amazing, don’t take your body for granted, tune in and listen to your body. And remember to look after yourself; look after yourself first and then you’ll have the energy you need for everything and everyone else in your life.
