Hello there, and Happy Friday.

This week we talked about Motivation and Self-Discipline/building habits that serve us.

Good habits = good life. Motivation will fire you up to start with, and Self-Discipline will keep you going.

So for example, if you want to deal with stress better and build resilience, build some good healthy habits. Like:

  • Sleep, sleep and more sleep. When we sleep, our brain processes the new information from the day and gets rid of toxic waste. Nerve cells communicate and reorganise, which supports healthy brain function. Our body repairs cells, restores energy and releases molecules like hormones and proteins. Sleep also bolsters immunity. Try if you can for at least seven to eight hours of sleep.
  • Get moving. Moving or exercising for 30 minutes a day triggers feel-good endorphins and, amazingly, something called GABA, a neurotransmitter that suppresses negative thinking. These two together can help you through a tough time. Research also shows that regular exercise boosts mood and assists significantly in treating depression, helping you maintain a positive outlook.
  • Meditate. If you have read my blog, you should know that I am a big fan of meditation and use it regularly. Don’t work yourself up or think you need to do something fancy: it can be as simple as focusing on a single item, like breathing or a mantra (one word repeated on a loop to help you focus). Research suggests that practising regularly may shrink the brain region associated with emotional processes, reducing stress, anxiety and even changing electrical activity in the brain, making you neither alert nor calm.
  • Eat. P-R-O-P-E-R-L-Y. Your body and your brain are like an engine that needs fuel. When food is scarce, your system routes its energy to essential activities, leaving part of your brain hungry; the brain needs at least 20% of the calorie you take to solve problems effectively. So eat proper meals to keep you on an even keel.


Have a lovely weekend and see you Monday  for more Be Your Best Self-talk x
