How to use your imagination to escape from COVID19 to #Escape2HappinessIsland

Right now, a lot of us are going through challenging times because of the situation we find ourselves because of the effects of COVID19.

Over the years, I have learnt to use my imagination to escape from the stresses and challenges of life  and go to  my happiness Island.

 Happiness Island is a place you can escape to  using your creativity and imagination to experience inner peace, joy and happiness,   Being in Happiness Island allows me to experience good vibes and regain my zest for life and you too can experience that,  I now invite you to take an adventure with me. Woohoo- lets go!!!

Step 1  Best time for you to Escape to Happiness Island

Decide on the best time of the day that you are are  relaxed. (As for me, I am a morning person)   You then need to find somewhere quiet where you can clear your mind and focus.

Step 2  I am ready to experience Happiness and Joy

Take a deep breath in, and then breathe out a couple of times. Now say say the words below.

Step 3.. What does your Happiness Island look like?

Imagine your own Happiness Island using all your senses –  What is the surrounding like? What are you tasting?  What are you smelling? What are you feeling? .What are you hearing? Who is their with you? What are you doing?   What are you eating?  What songs are you listening to or dancing to?

Imagine your Island has everything that you need right now. Spend some time just enjoying your stay their. If you feel like singing sing, if you feel like dancing dance.  Just do anything that makes you feel good,

. Step 4  Be Grateful and thankful for life

Now, focus your mind on God or whoever you see as your source of help and thank them for the Gift of life and all that you have in life right now.  Say out loud at least 7 things you are grateful and thankful for them.

 

Step 5  Leaving Happiness island energised and happy

Imagine you are now leaving Happiness Island feeling Inspired, Energised, Happy and  beaming with smiles.  Join me and do the happy dance.

Life will get better #LiveInHope #RainbowOfHope

Good morning. #StayingPositive listening to Jimmy Cliff – I Can See Clearly Now.  Listening to uplifting music is good for the soul and lifts your mood.

“I Can See Clearly Now

I can see clearly now the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day
It’s gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day

Oh, yes I can make it now the pain is gone
All of the bad feelings have disappeared
Here is that rainbow I’ve been praying for
It’s gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day

(Ooh…) Look all around, there’s nothing but blue skies
Look straight ahead, there’s nothing but blue skies

I can see clearly now the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Here is that rainbow I’ve been praying for
It’s gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day
It’s gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day
It’s going to be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day
Yeah, hey, it’s gonna be a bright (bright) bright (bright)
Sunshiny day

Lean on me when you are not strong #StrongerTogether

At a time like this, it’s great that we can support each other as together we are stronger – Though I woke up today feeling downhearted  with some of the bad news we hear, I was so Inspired this morning by the song
Lean on me – as it reminded me that people care.

 

Lean On Me- Bill Withers

Sometimes in our lives we all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there’s always tomorrow
Lean on me, when you’re not strong
And I’ll be your friend
I’ll help you carry on
For it won’t be long
‘Til I’m gonna need
Somebody to lean on
Please swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no one can fill those of your needs
That you won’t let show
You just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you’ll understand
We all need somebody to lean on
Lean on me, when you’re not strong
And I’ll be your friend
I’ll help you carry on
For it won’t be long
‘Til I’m gonna need
Somebody to lean on
You just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on

Step out and celebrate your Awesomeness

If you are reading this and you don’t feel too good about yourself, I want you to smile and know that you are unique, special and are loved. Don’t let anyone drag you down and make you feel inferior.  Make these affirmations below part of your daily routine every morning.( You can also write your own)

Today is The Day of Awesomeness, and it  celebrates the awesome that exists in each of us every day, and gives us an excuse to make our awesomeness shine.

How to celebrate the Day of Awesomeness

Walk down the street and be your awesome and incomparable self, and then make a point of recognising the awesomeness in other people!

 

Try again and keep hope alive

It is easy to sit back and let life pass you by. Everyone fears failure, but the one sure way to fail at something is to never give it a go. So today, I encourage you to be brave, step out and try, because trying is the first step to succeeding.

 

 

Achievement doesn’t happen immediately. Most of the time it’s a slow uphill walk. But gradually, over time, the landscape changes, you near the top, and suddenly you’re there.

When you feel you can’t move another step, when you feel crippled with fear, watch something that will make you laugh. Dance when life rains down on you. You will be amazed at what a difference this will make.

 

Next time something embarrassing happens to you,  don’t think of how embarrassing it is, don’t beat yourself up about something you can’t change, instead re-frame the story in your mind. Think about how you will tell the story to your friends to make it a funny and entertaining. Let the story you tell make you smile and laugh out loud.

 

Right now, it may  seem like you are stuck in a dark tunnel; like the pain, fear and desperation you feel is just how your life will be. But that is not true. You won’t always feel this way; people, situations, locations and feelings all change. Think of other times in your life where you felt like nothing would change. Now remember that they did.

Use affirmations like these to help motivate and inspire you

Tips to help you wake up eager to #Exercise #HealthierMe

If you are struggling to exercise like I was especially during the past 3 months, I share with you how I have got my mojo back and I really enjoy waking up each day, eager to go out and exercise.

Lets begin

  • Write down all the reasons why you want to start exercising.
  • Imagine how you would feel once you have exercised.
  • Have a mantra to say each morning – I love to exercise and I wake up each morning fuel with anticipation, excitement and eager as I go out to exercise and feel good.

  • Choose an exercise regime that you would love.
  • Choose a time of the day that will fit your  life schedule
  • Choose how many minutes you want to exercise for
  • Decide how  many times a week you are going to exercise and record it in your diary.

,My experience – I have over the years done a combination of exercises but this February, I decided to go back to the gym. I decided to stick to Powerwave Gym because it is for 20 minutes of High Intensive Training  and even though this first month,has been tough on my body, I am happy I have stuck to going 3 days a week minimum. I do the morning sessions because I am an early riser and it  means its over and done with and I can fuel my day with energy and good vibes.   I am also going to go back to jogging every other day for an hour.  My BMI is quite high and I would like to reduce that and maintain a healthy weight.

  • If you do decided to go to a gym, do a taster session first

 

  • Get a gym/.exercise  buddy so that you can encourage and support each other

 

  • Reward yourself at the end of each week as you celebrate exercising for the week
  • Don’t beat yourself up if you have some days that you don’t feel like exercising, it’s all part of life, but make sure you get back on track and keep going remembering the best gift you can give to yourself is good health.
