How Changing One Habit Could Make Your Dreams Come True

Do You have a morning ritual?

I’m not talking about ‘get out of bed, have a shower, put on your clothes, have breakfast etc while in automatic mode’ and then dragging yourself out of the house

That’s more of a routine or maybe even a habit.

I’m talking about a ritual and the difference is that a ritual is something done mindfully.

So, your ritual could look similar - getting out of bed, showering, having breakfast and leaving the house, but instead of just getting out of bed, you might get out of bed and do a minute’s stretches and then you might do affirmations in the shower.

You may already have considered what you’re going to wear, even the night before, and your clothing is making a statement about who you are and how you want to present yourself that day. And when you eat, you do so mindfully so you savour every mouthful.

7 Tips to Make Long Haul Travel Easier

7 Tips to Make Long Haul Travel Easier

s your dream holiday a trip to the other side of the world . For those of us in the Southern Hemisphere, Europe is often a dream destination. And for those in Europe, New Zealand and Australia are often on the bucket list. But half way around the world is a long way to travel and involves long haul flights in most cases.

Every year, in our winter but in the Northern Hemisphere summer, my husband and I travel to London to spend time with our grandson. It's my favorite time of the year just because we get to spend so much time with our grandson - he's so gorgeous and I love him to bits.

Living half way around the world from your family is a challenge so I'm very grateful that we're able to relocate to London for 3 months a year. It does mean, however, that I'm very familiar with long haul travel - you can't get any further from the United Kingdom than New Zealand!

Not surprisingly, I have a few tips to make the trip easier. These tips will be useful however you travel, economy to first class. Some things are just part of the long haul and can't be bought away :-)

Are you ready for 2017?

The new year looms. What have you got planned?

Do you make New Year resolutions? if so, do you achieve them? Statistics show that most people don't keep to their resolutions. I actually don't make resolutions anymore - instead I give myself a THEME for the year and I live by that.

Themes I have had include SELF LOVE, GRATITUDE, MIRACLES, ACTION and for 2017 my theme is FREEDOM. Why I like a theme is that anytime I may have to make a decision or a choice, I ask myself, what fits best with my theme.
