MGS9 – Breathe

Breath is life…

Breathing is fundamental to our state of wellbeing. In episode 9, we explore how we can use breathing to change our mind and body for the better.

Practising conscious breath is one of the most effective ways to change your physiology and your emotional state. It starts with one inhale and one exhale.

MGS8 – Move

A bit of rhythm and moves…

Our third fundamental self-care habit is all about the moves. In episode 8, I share quick ways to incorporate movement into your workdays.

This article highlights several reasons why movement trumps sedentary habits.

Now take your moves to the next level by getting in on some of this Madagascar ‘Move It’ action. You’ll thank me later.

MGS7 – Eat

You are what you eat…

Becoming more aware of what we choose to put onto our forks is the topic of Episode 7. Nutrition is the second fundamental habit of good self-care. We need to learn how to master our forks like a Jedi masters ‘the force’.

I mentioned a few dietary styles you might not be familiar with:

  • Veganism is an ethical philosophy as much as a dietary preference.
  • Paleo focuses on our historical ‘caveman’ tendencies.
  • Pescatarians are fish eating veggies.

Healthier eating starts with awareness and choice.

  • Watch That Sugar Movie… to learn more about the effect of sugar on your system.
  • The documentary What The Health informs on how our current food system impacts on our health.

MGS6 – Sleep

The Sleep Factor…

In episode 6, we head to Club Duvet to find out more about why sleep is one of our most important fundamental self-care habits.

As you’ll see, in true cheesy 70’s disco style, I’ve got all the moves!

There’s a lot of research out there about the side effects of poor sleep … here’s a few articles to help you improve your ZZZ skills:

The findings might seem scary but once you’re in the know, this helps you put your pillow first and sets you up for sweeter dreams.

MGS5 – Self-Discipline

MGS4 – Self-Knowledge

The Second Foundation Stone

In episode 4 of Mini Growth Sessions, I touch on what happens when we get to know ourselves deep down.


In the next episode, I’ll cover the third and final foundation stone.

After that we’ll be diving into key aspects of each of them.

You can catch all of the Mini Growth Sessions here.

Until next time… be brave, think big, stand tall.

Cheers, Mich :)

Keep Going

What if I keep going until it's done, instead of stopping because I'm unsure.

When it’s unclear how something will turn out, it’s easy to stop doing it.

We do this just in case it doesn’t work out right. Because we are afraid of failing.

But what if we keep going, to see how it actually turns out?

To be truly sure of an outcome, we need to see things through to the end.

MGS3 – Self-Care

The First Foundation Stone

This episode of Mini Growth Sessions is about Self-Care and why it’s fundamentally important to look after ourselves…

Stay tuned for future episodes, where I’ll explore the second and third foundation stones and their key aspects.

You can watch Episode 1 here  and Episode 2 here.

Be brave, think big, stand tall.

Cheers Mich : )

Big Self vs Small Self

What if I ignore the limits my scared self sets?

Every day we’re faced with the choice to be one of two people.

A scared self, who wants to remain small, so that we can be safe and certain.

Or a brave self. The version of ourselves who stands tall, shows courage and steps out there.

To do something, wear something, say something, make something or stand for something. The one who embraces new opportunities, despite the unknowns.

Our small self tries to set limits to protect us.

Sometimes there’s a jolly good reason for it. But sometimes that fear is an illusion.

What if that small self – or the limits it sets – didn’t exist?

“Don’t let your mind set limits that aren’t really there.”

~ Zadie Smith (English Novelist)

What if we step out into the world every single day being our Big, Brave Self…

… because that’s the person we choose to be?

… because that’s the person we actually are?

Our opportunities become limitless when we remove our self-imposed limits.

Be brave, think big, stand tall. Put on your velvet tasseled jacket with your 6 inch cowboy boots and go get ’em! :)

 

MGS2 – Three Spokes

The Foundation Stones of Self-Mastery

In Episode Two of Mini Growth Sessions, I touch on the three foundation stones (or spokes) that help us to build a stronger practice of Self-Mastery.

Stay tuned for future episodes where I’ll explore each of these foundation stones. I’ll also share more ideas on how we can learn to live and work better.

You can watch the first episode of Mini Growth Sessions here.

Cheers, Mich :)
