Feel Better Friday video: What will you put in your mightier than a vision board ‘mood box’?

Writing today’s blog is making me laugh again as I start a NEW mood box for something I’d not even considered when I filmed this on Monday.

They can be used for moods (calm? confident? peaceful? courageous? sleepy? safe?) and goals.

Use all your senses – vision, hearing, touch (fabrics, stones…), emotions, even smells and (careful not to have things that might go off) tastes.

What’s will you put in your mood box?

What will you use for it? An old shoebox that you decorate? 

Feel free to share below.

With love,

Sometimes I feel a little guilty when I think about how hard all my houseplants work (although them simply being themselves helps me remember my own intentions so I don’t think it’s too arduous for them).

Have you used houseplants to help you with goal setting or intentions?

Using diaries to enhance your self-care

Wow. It’s a really long time since I blogged – the last few weeks, I’ve been experimenting with videos. From now on, I’ll be blogging each new video and I’m planning to make them mostly #feelbetterfriday videos as, apparently, it’s better to do such things on the same day each week.

This week’s video is sharing my love of stationery, especially diaries. As well as a blank one for journalling, I use several each year for different purposes:

  • appointments
  • things to do
  • keeping track of finances
  • keeping track of habits and how I’m doing in terms of making the new improved behaviour habitual

The video above shares some simple tools to help you do the same as well as ideas for becoming a mood detective into what helps YOU feel better so you can do more of those things on purpose.

There are also lots of great planners available – I’ve used Danielle LaPorte’s and the Daily Greatness in the past.

What kind of diaries do you use?

What is your top tip?

Wishing you lots of fun in planning your best year yet for 2018.

love,

Eve

Thanks again, Chelmsford Waterstones!

Eve Waterstones Chelmsford

I had a lovely Saturday afternoon at the Chelmsford branch of Waterstones, attempting to look ‘friendly but not creepy’ as people paused to look at my book and I signed copies for those who wanted to buy one.

Looking forward to the next, at Billericay Library (click HERE) on 25th and am also now offering personalised signed copies for people who can’t get to various signings and events but want their own copy or a gift for someone else (click HERE).

love,

I know, I know, but, in case you’ve started your Christmas shopping…

giftideashomepage

I can already hear the outrage. It’s only the start of November! And yet, some people LIKE to sort Christmas and other holiday shopping early. Some people (including me) are already REALLY looking forward to making 2018 the best yet.

If you’re interested, I’ve put together a few potential gift ideas – maybe treats for yourself, maybe a gift for a loved one.

My book, Sleep Yoga classes, 9 Week Chakra Coaching Programme and any integrative therapy session (ie, you can choose which you’d like to include – some coaching alongside yoga? Crystals? NLP? EFT? Meditation? Recently, I’ve been working with yoga and crystals at the same time – really interesting, powerful work) are a few potential gift ideas.

Click HERE for more information and ideas and get in touch if you have any questions.

I work with individuals and groups in Essex (Witham, Colchester and Frinton on Sea) and worldwide via Skype/Vsee and telephone.

I look forward to working with you (and your loved ones!) the rest of this year, in 2018 and beyond.

love,

Eve

My Frinton Literary Festival workshops

EveOct17

It was SUCH a pleasure to facilitate a couple of workshops in one of my favourite places, Frinton on Sea, yesterday.

FrintonLibrary

I was offering a couple of the Community Events and was able to do two very different workshops at the library as different groups showed up in the morning and afternoon.

SeasideEarlyMorning

The morning workshop was more cognitive with a goal setting exercise that participants can apply to other areas of their lives. We did some mind/body connection work to aid confidence, too.

I had a lovely lunch break paddling, reading and enjoying the sea.

BeachLunch

FrintonBeachHuts

Then the afternoon group did some Chair Yoga and a cleansing meditation.

Both groups did a simple breath practice and chose little crystals to ground the workshops.

Gorgeous start to the week!

love,

Eve
