As we approach Christmas and New Year this week’s blog is about taking time to pause and take stock, which is so important. It opens you up to be present, to exploration and discovery.
“It has been quite a year for us all”
This is a time when there are even more changes that surrounds you. Dietary habits change and social gathering very different this year.
Online events increases, motivational and inspirational subscriptions are on the rise and so is online shopping.
How has this year been for you?
How do you see yourself in 2021?
In what way will you keep yourself grounded, in the flow, and letting go of the things that no longer serve you. My answer to this is when we have a daily ritual in place this is golden.
Taking time out to pause and take stock gives you time to reflect, time to understand when you need to slow down, make changes and do things differently. Hence, adapt, change and react with ease, and get more things done.
It can be a very inspiring and motivating time encouraging you to live life with confidence, appreciate your accomplishments, and the people who have helped you with your achievements, those around you including family and friends.
“Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.”
-Jackson Brown Jr

Let’s Take A Closer Look At Journaling.
- You can use a diary, journal or an App. However, by doing this you are able to free up your thoughts in a very positive and powerful way.
- Journaling can be done at any time where there are no distractions, however, you are likely to be far more intentional about your day and goals if you do this at the beginning of the day.
- Make Journaling a daily activity.
- Not sure what to write. You might spend some time on gratitude, writing your intention for the day. If you are writing your journal at the end of the day you might write about what went well, your recipe for inspiration, what are the small things that make you happy or what is your self-care routine.
- Make it as long or short as you like.
