Life balance manifesto

Manifesto

I believe that my blog has something for everybody. Because everybody deserves to have joy and happiness in their lives. But then there are certain kinds of people who will always automatically put everyone else first, they are sensitive to negativity and will avoid it at all costs by letting too much fall upon themselves to sort out. Because of this they may have suffered with depression or anxiety, insomnia, stress and overwhelm. They may feel taken advantage of and be in a place where they feel stuck and aren’t sure how to get out. When they perhaps fall upon my blog they might not have realised that the key is ‘Looking after yourself first means that everything else will become easier’. When they visit my blog and start to implement self-care and other techniques their life will become more joy-filled and they will keep up the techniques they have learnt in order to hold off the return of the stress and overwhelm they felt before.

The reason I chose to help this particular kind of people is because I am one of those people. If that is your personality, it doesn’t go away, but you learn to manage and you learn how much you can benefit from looking after yourself first. You have to keep implementing these techniques because otherwise you can go backwards. It does happen and we realise that we haven’t been implementing self-care and we have let people take advantage of us or we forgot to not overdo it. Then you keep going. You aren’t back to square one by any means, you learn to see it coming by knowing your own warning signs and then you can re-address what you need to do.

This is why I am here doing this, this is why I can help you, because I am one of you. I write blog posts, I send them out into the world and I read them too. I follow my own advice, I am by no means a finished product. I am on the same journey as you. Learning how to feel better in my life and fill it with ease and joy. I am still exploring this, imagining new ways to help myself, reading endless books and blogs and meeting people and using techniques given to me to make this a happier, joyful, easier life for myself. I want nothing more than to help as many other people as I can on the way because I truly believe that nobody should have to be always stressed or sad or unhappy and that everyone can and should live happily and all the awful things I experienced didn’t happen for nothing, they happened so that I would be in a better position to help you.

If there was just one thing that I would wish for my readers to take away from my blog it is that you deserve to have a life full of joy and peace and not to dread your days, to enjoy being you and living your life. Life is precious and it should be full of love and light and it can be when you take this first step to start looking after yourself.

July is here!

Yes July is here and it certainly feels like high summer where I am. Trying to keep cool is a very rare experience where I live!

July

The feedback I have been getting from self-care month has been so wonderful and helpful and the whole experience has been eye-opening. The main points that I have been getting back is that it was interesting and great to find new ways to take care of yourselves (yay) but also that you may not have completed every task every day. This is totally fine because it’s all individual and it is your journey, my love. Only do what speaks to you and feeds your spirit.

So now I can announce that the whole of self-care month will be available in ebook form from later today as The Self Care Manual. Available on Amazon for £1.99 or totally free(!) if you sign up here to what is now my newsletter (if you signed up for self-care month emails you don’t need to sign up again).

The Self-Care Manual Cover

And the last thing I want to share, part of this truly gorgeous email that I received about self-care month…

‘It gave me some sort of a frame to hold on to on bad days. At one low point i was eager for the daily mail at noon (because of time zone differences).you gave me some ideas for self care that i have not tried until now and i might stick to some and make them a habit.
I want to thank you and express my true gratitude and appreciation for what you are doing! You are really helping people lift themselves up to a better future, people who sometimes don’t have the power to do this themselves.

The world needs more people like you!! Keep up the good work in making people better!’

How beautiful? Think this email may have made my year!

Joy & hugs,

It works!

I had a wonderful message the other day from one of my readers, she had a bad day with a lot of stress from outside influences beyond her control and decided to delve into the ‘bag of tricks’ to feel more balanced and calm heres what she said;

‘I had the most horrendous migraine yesterday with it all and I realised my neck and shoulders were tense. This made me think about the things you have said so I put everything on hold and jumped into a nice hot bubble bath and came up with an action plan. It worked!!!! Thank you! You should be so proud of everything you are doing for yourself and other people.’

I’ll be honest now it brought a tear to my eye. I love to know, on a personal level that the tricks and tips I write are being used and are working. I mean, I know they work because I do it myself but it’s so good to hear this.

And very importantly-Dear Lady, you should be soo proud of yourself too for noticing the signs and for looking after yourself. I am so proud of you and happy for you!

Remembering to take care of yourself when it feels like the world is falling apart is hard to do. But it works, it puts things into perspective and it makes you stronger for when these things do arise.

Have you been delving in to my bag of tricks? What do you feel is working for you?

Don’t forget to sign up for self-care month emails. A self-care task to your inbox everyday throughout June for FREEEEE!!

And the Ebook Balance Your Life Today is available worldwide on Amazon for £1.99 or free on kindle unlimited. It is a practical guide to creating balance in your life and is choca-blok with tips and hints.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend,

Love & joy,

Self-Care Month…Coming Soon….

Well I’m here at playgroup with this little sprout


Making the most of a little bit of time while I start this post.

Today is just becoming one of those days where everything is out of focus and it all seems to go wrong. Yeah, we all have them, on the outside it seems that everything about the day is as usual but then everything seems to go wrong!

Sometimes it feels impossible to balance all areas of our lives. It is possible but it requires us being totally conscious all the time of which areas need more attention and which areas need us to let go a little bit.

So the one thing that suffers first for myself and most people is self-care. Which is, I guess, because we have so many other demands on us with other responsibilities. So in honour of this I am declaring June 2015 ‘Self Care Month’ there will be a 30 day self care challenge. What this involves is a free daily email from myself containing one self-care task per day to be completed throughout June for FREE! This is a free subscription all you need to do to get involved is sign up to the emails via this link;

Simple as that! So I hope you’re really looking forward to Self-Care month I know I am, I’ll be joining in with all the tasks too and it is going to be seriously amazing!

Peace,

Imogen x
