Make YOUR positive change

#MakeAChangeIn5 is all about positive thinking and making changes to benefit ourselves.

Sometimes what we want to change is small, sometimes big – it depends on our own, unique situations.

#MakeAChangeIn5 blog positivethinking Change WellbeingWhat matters is mindset

Taking steps to make those changes is what matters. It can take 5 seconds to decide to do something to make a change and 5 minutes, days, months or longer to make that change. My #MakeaChangeIn5 facebrook group is a supportive, closed group where you can say what you’d like to change, be accountable and get support and cheerleading along the way. As long as it benefits YOU, it can be anything you like! If YOUR change benefits others, that’s great.

Please do share any inspirational posts or quotes that fit in with the feel of the group. Thanks for joining in to make YOUR change!

7 crystals to help you concentrate

We all feel the need for focus sometimes don’t we?  Concentrating with so many distractions in modern living can be a challenge.  Be ahead of the game and use these 7 crystals to aide your concentration.
You can use crystals with your chakras.  Not sure what chakras are?  They’re ‘energy centres’ in our bodies and they’re colour-coded according to each ‘energy centre’ or chakra.   You can read more on chakras soon on my blog and this poem is a brief guide to chakras.

Now let’s look at those 7 crystals that can help you concentrate…

A brief guide to chakras ~ poem

Brief Guide to Chakras Wellbeing Balance

A brief guide to chakras

I recently told you how you can balance your body and mind with crystals.  To illustrate how you can do this, there are many levels of alternative therapies that we can and must look at.  The challenge is to introduce each level as a layer, much like an auric layer!  (more on those at a later date!)

We each have 7 major ‘spinning wheels’ called chakras. They should each be open and spinning in alternate directions. They should also align with each other. If they’re not open and aligned, the energy cannot flow freely. When we have blockages in our energy flow, we become out of balance. This is when our body becomes out of alignment or not at ‘ease’. It is when our body is ‘dis-eased’ that we get ill. It is clear to see then, that if we keep our chakras balanced, we are less likely to experience ‘dis-ease’ or ‘illness’ and stress.

Brief Guide to Chakras Wellbeing Balance

Other than introducing you to my ebook ‘The Domino Effect‘ (for your free copy, opt-in at the bottom of this post), the best way I can think to introduce you to the wonderful world of chakras is in poem form.  Here’s one that I wrote a few years ago and it’s the perfect time to share it again:

How to balance your body and mind with crystals

We all feel the stresses of life don’t we?  Even those of us who follow a daily routine.  It’s called ‘life’.  As soon as you step outside your door, you leave yourself open to outside influences that cause imbalances in your body and mind.

But there are things you can do to keep that balance and keep ‘aligned’

5 of the Best Herbal Teas For Your Wellbeing

5 of the best herbal teas for your wellbeing

There’s nothing quite like a hot, comforting drink is there?  Particularly in the colder months.

Some people reach for a steaming cup of coffee.  Me?  I reach for a soothing or reviving cup of herbal tea.  I used to drink coffee but have blogged before about how I got off caffeine.

There are several benefits of herbal teas and I’ve tried many over the years.

5 of the Best Herbal Teas For Your Wellbeing

Occasionally I take the teabag out before I drink but I usually keep it in because this really enhances the flavour.  Here are some of my favourites:

Time for a dose of happiness in #HighlightsofHappy blog linky #36 ~ because life’s for the good stuff

Time For A Dose Of Happiness In Highlights Of Happy Blog Linky 36 Amazing Assembly Performance
It's time for a dose of happiness in #HighlightsofHappy 35 blog linky because life's for the good stuff. We look back on the week with gratitude

Your weekly dose of happiness…

Let’s spread the happiness!

It’s a common phrase isn’t it?…

“Bad things come in 3’s”

or words similar to that!

So, let’s flip it because everyone deserves a little happiness … (you know how I love to spread happiness and turn a negative into a positive with positive thinking !)

Let’s spread that happiness and find 3 things to be grateful for (or even more… well, why not?!)

Time For A Dose Of Happiness In Highlights Of Happy Blog Linky 36 Amazing Assembly Performance

In my weekly feature, I look back over my gratitude journal because that’s the great thing about gratitude and using my gratitude journal – it gives me the opportunity to look back and be grateful all over again 🙂  And that’s what I do here, in my weekly feature, I look back and on my #HighlightsofHappy.

I round it off with one word that sums up my happy…  why not do the same?

If you’re a blogger, why not share your happy post from the last week or so in the linky below?

If you’re on instagram, why not tag your happy snap #HighlightsofHappy and link up your pic in the linky below?

If you’re on twitter, why not tweet your happy with #HighlightsofHappy ?

If you’re all 3, why not do all 3??  The linky is below. (To link your insta happy snap, simply click on your insta pic, copy the url and paste into the linky tool!)

(If you join in with my #HighlightsofHappy community on instagram, I post up my favourite snaps every Monday on instagram.)b

…so what’s been making ME happy?

Well it’s been an amazing week, truly it has…

After a hospital appointment, I was discharged which, believe me, was an immense relief!  A dear friend is not in such a good position and that’s really made me stop and be in the moment.  I make no apologies for how corny that might sound.  Because I’ve savoured every single good feeling I’ve had and hope to remain in this ‘in the moment’ mindset. Savour the good times people 🙂

The after school cheerleading club is doing a little performance for the parents and carers.  Our daughter came out of the club this week clutching a slip of paper with details and I’m SO looking forward to it!

I went to see our girl’s class assembly and was so very proud of her doing a little solo introduction.  She had been practicing her lines but she didn’t make it clear to me that she was actually introducing the class topics at the start of the assembly.  Her voice carried very well and she remembered the words of the little intro. 🙂

We saw my grandparents, our daughter told them all about what she’s been doing at school, about her excitement for her up-coming sleepover and well everything in between!

For playing the recorder with my daughter.  Yes, it came with a silent apology to the neighbours (!) and a *slight* cringe as she didn’t quite have her fingers fully over the holes at times… but that’s all a part of the fun hey!

I had time to myself for pretty much a whole afternoon while hubby and our girl went on a little shopping adventure.  I curled up on the sofa in the sunshine like a cat and stayed there for a very long time 🙂

~

So that’s my happy and my happy word is ‘amazing’ because looking over my gratitude journal, it’s literally full on every page.  That tells me that a whole load of happy has been going on.  And my mood and mindset totally reflects that.  I make no apologies for being happy and I never will 🙂

How about you?  I’d love to hear about your ‘happy’ in the comments below or tweet me @AllSortsHere using #HighlightsofHappy

Go on, share your happy with me!

Thanks 🙂
