  • #wholeheartedweek Day 6 - Cycles! 💫
.
Change isn't linear, it's cyclical - has become a bit of a mantra for me recently, it's really helped me understand how change actually happens in our lives, it's rarely a straight line. .
Alongside this, having an understanding and appreciation for the cycles in our lives as women can help so much of our experience in a female body make more sense - whether it's our menstrual cycle, the moon cycle and our life phases, it can help us find balance when we understand where we are in our own cyclical nature ⚡️
.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on this - is learning about cycles and entirely new concept for you? Do you track your menstrual cycle? Does the idea of change being cyclical resonate with you?

  • Today's theme for #wholeheartedweek is Self Care 💗
.
It might be a bit of a wellness buzzword right now but for good reason - when we aren't getting our own needs met, showing up for others as our full selves is so much harder, and right now with the world the way it is, we need to be able to show up as our full selves 💫
.
As much as the image above is a form of self care it is not by any means what true self care is - yes it definitely includes pampering but to think of the full breadth of self care I like to use my 6 self care themes which are nourishment, movement, pampering, relaxation, organisation and growth ✨
.
Self care can be getting your needs met, filling your cup and doing what you need to feel good and experience joy, but in my experience the Self Care that really packs a punch doesn't always feel good when you're doing it - think removing yourself from toxic friendships, having awkward conversations about boundaries or getting a smear test done - all necessary but not always fun! 😫
.
I think it's just brilliant that we are having conversations about self care now - loving @superlativelylj #selfcareseptember posts right now as a great example 💘
.
Could talk about self care for days - check out my free Ultimate Self Care Kit or my Wholehearted Self Care Guide on my site if you'd like to know more!

  • Today's theme for #wholeheartedweek is Habits 👌🏻
.
Habits is a bit of an unsexy wellness topic compared to more trendy self care etc, but without a solid grasp of your habits it's hard to really get shit done and create change in your life ⚡️
.
I totally recommend that everyone does the four tendencies quiz from @gretchenrubin to get an idea on how you might relate to habits and therefore, what habit forming strategies will work best for you ✨
.
Personally I'm a huge fan of a habit tracker grid bujo style for monitoring my habits - although posting this pic of a woman doing yoga as totally reminded me that should be on there alongside my mediation, vitamins and EFT!
.
What's one new habit you'd love to adopt and what strategies could you use to help make it stick? 💫

  • Today's theme for #wholeheartedweek is Foundations 👍🏻
.
In my work coaching women, 3 key areas have emerged that I feel lay the foundations for real wellbeing and happiness: habits, self care and mindset ⚡️
.
All three overlap in places which makes them so awesome, they come together so you can build something bigger 💫
.
And when you have an awareness of what's going on for you in each of those areas that's when the magic happens and you create lasting change to your wellbeing - not something that just lasts as long as a 12 week plan 🙄
.
Over the next three days I'll be talking more about each of these areas more - stay tuned to see me geek out on habits, self care and mindset! 💘
.
What are your initial thoughts on each of those areas in your life?
