Keeping your MoJo beyond 40!

As a woman in her 50th year, I’ve experienced that inevitable shift and change in my body.  It starts when you hit your 30’s and if you don’t watch out for it, that gain in weight, lack of flexibility, and loss of energy soon creeps in.  Today I’m proud to say I feel fitter and stronger than I did throughout the whole decade of my 40’s.  Since December I’ve lost 1.5 stones, dropped 25 inches, dropped a dress size (which is already nearly 2 dress sizes), and smashed my August goals already.  
Here’s what I did and what you can do too.

How to heal deeply

We all experience difficult times in our life, whether that be loss, change, trauma or grief.  Working through or moving on from these situations can be a challenge on our own.  Our primitive brain want to keep us safe, and unwittingly it often keeps us stuck and locked down, emotionally.  I hear all of the time clients telling me they feel ‘drained emotionally’, ‘lost’, ‘disempowered’, ‘trapped’, and desperate to feel differently to how they do right now.  I want you to know that it is possible to find peace again, to be in harmony with yourself once again, and find joy in life.

How to recover the whole self from injury, major illness or surgery

Having worked in the mental health sector of the NHS for over 13 years, I know that the larger proportion of focus is often around physical recovery, with little to no emphasis on emotional recovery. Beyond meditation and mindfulness, I have found that talking therapies such as psychotherapy and coaching are an essential part of recovery from emotional trauma.  It’s so important to be able to freely express what we’re going through to someone who won’t judge us, and is not emotionally involved in our lives.  Coming to terms with how you and your life is post injury or major surgery takes purposeful guidance, and time.

Control your fear

If we let fear in it will consume us, control our thoughts, actions and reactions.  Fear that’s fed will grow big in our stomaches and strengthen in our minds, until it has won over our very being, and turned into a phobia that haunts us daily. This week I’ll share a my own (brief) story of anxiety that led to a fear and panic, … Read More Control your fear
