Happy holidays 2018 and New Year 2019

Hi everyone Have an awesome day – celebrate the courage it takes to get out of bed and do whatever it is you need to do. If your skin is dry or your bones and muscles ache, celebrate the gift of movement. You may be able to see, think, hear and feel the wind on your hair and sun on your skin. Walk in the grass barefoot, work on that assignment or work task. Dare to look inside that shop or say hello to that co-worker or school mate. Let your light shine – even on days when you feel less than zero on a score of ten. You are special and our creator sees this – no matter what your beliefs are or religion. Define who you are by your thoughts, actions and deeds. If need be take the road less traveled you will be amazed at what you see. Peace be with you all xx

Human Neurodiversity Should Be Celebrated, Not Treated as a Disorder

People are all wired to think differently. Learning to accept and celebrate everyone’s uniqueness or “oddities” helps the world become a better place.

Mental health for all of us is extremely important as it is the beginning of all our health.Β  How we see, view everything in our life has an impact on our bodies and fitness. Something to consider! πŸ™‚

What does your inner voice say? Self talk

How does the voice inside your head talk to you? You know the one you bounce ideas off and look to for suggestions in your lifes choices? The one who looks back at you from your eyes each morning? Are they helpful, a critic – positive or negative? We all have the voice inside who we look to for advice as its our “inner voice”. The one who can be your best friend or your worst enemy – depending on the day.

Many of us would go and talk to our friends, suggest they be nicer to themselves when they are negative. Make comments that cut and are cruel about themselves. Then we do the opposite – we go into our own inner critic slamming ourselves relentlessly for the mistakes we make and what a fool we are at times.

How we see ourselves is as changeable as the wind and weather! It can be hot as one day, freezing the next or storming within the same day. Our emotions and self talk can be as damaging as a hurricane with effects that last for years after the event is over. It’a time to say “stop – wait a minute?” You need to get the traffic lights out and get them working. Yes you will have go, get ready to stop and go.

A simple way to start improving your self talk is to see what thoughts run through your head daily. Pick one and use your traffic lights to control your thought. If its not productive and its slamming you, being relentlessly negative – stop it. Switch it out for something more useful. A kind word or two. Hey I did a good job – yes I can do better with time. Talk to yourself the way your want to be treated.

Enjpy Nature – the quiet time within the storm.

Age is not an excuse to stop exercising

Age is not an excuse to stop exercising as we are meant to move at any age. It is never to late to make a fresh start with the goal being a better quality of life. I found this lady a long while ago and watched the video again today. At 86 she is incredible. You are worth working on and becoming the best version of you!

Food is not your enemy!

Food does not have to be your number one enemy and neither do you! We are more than the sum total of what we put into our mouths and swallow. Yes food is extremely important – as is the relationship you have with it. By relationship – how you see it – your attitudes – likes and dislikes. Another words the good, the bad and the ugly you see about food.

There is no one size diet – also known as how you eat on a daily basis – fits everyone. Some people are allergic to food, some don’t physically have access to certain types, money be a big concern as to eat costs. There will be a certain way that works best for you in the long term that is found throughout lifestyle changes.

Your own opinions and attitudes change as you go through life. You may like something today and not liked it years ago. I tried king prawns again after 20 years – great to be shown how to peel and eat them properly. I still am out on my decision maybe with some lemon would be better. My other family members were loving them. Each to their own which is good.

The idea of the food of the website is to learn to have a more balanced approach to food. You don’t need to have an all or nothing approach – maybe curious – learn – keep an open mind.

I had a eating disorder for many years and now struggle with some negative thoughts that occasionally kick in. Everyone has their own unique likes and dislikes – unique health and fitness issues. Learning to enjoy food for the simple great flavors they have, the textures, the smells, the benefits, how you cook them and more! Food is amazing and learning is power!

Learning to be kind to yourself, to be curious, to explore, open to new ideas! Welcome to amazing world of food!
