Retrain Brain and Simply-Shine - Hello March

This post was updated on 24/03/18

Today is my Wellbeing Wednesday! The first Wednesday of the month where I share my plans for my wellbeing for the month ahead. I’ve recently set up a new format for this, you can read more about this here.

Well before I delve into the categories I should mention that I have set a challenge for March. #3forMe March Self-Care Challenge is about carrying out 3 self-care activities every day.  It is too easy to get caught up in the day to day and not spend time looking after your mind, body and soul. This challenge keeps me accountable to do just that.

I am so excited that a number of people are also taking part in both Shine in Self-Care Facebook group and Instagram. I am on a mission to get as many people taking care of themselves more. If you would like to get involved, click on either link above.

Otherwise read on to see what March wellbeing looks like for me.

How to Feel Good in Feb with FND

Retrain Brain and Simply-Shine - Hello February

This post was updated on 24/03/18

Towards the end of the month, typically on the last Wednesday, I sit with no distractions and focus on my monthly goals in relation to well-being; I have a review and look to the month ahead to see what I might want to aim for. I think this is so important. If you don’t stop every now and again to take stock, how do you know you are focusing on the right things. There is no doubt that being healthy has always been important to me and it has now become a keen interest and passion.

In a previous blog post, which you can read here, I explained that I have expanded the dimensions I look at. I’ve included headings the areas I will focus on as well as a little explanation/further detail.

Announcing How I’ve Improved My Wellbeing Review

Announcing How I’ve Improved My Wellbeing Review

Retrain Brain and Simply-Shine - how I have changed my wellbeing review

This post was updated on 24/03/18

I love how successful the #3forMe Challenge Facebook group has been throughout December. It was great to see so many people getting involved and looking after their health. After the first few days of the challenge, it got me thinking about the wellbeing review and plan I do once a month. Towards the end of the month, typically on the last Wednesday, I sit with no distractions and review my wellbeing goals and plan for the month ahead. I think this is so important to set goals and review them to live an intentional and purposeful life. In relation to wellbeing specifically, I know how important it is to take care of myself and this is now a real passion of mine.  I researched wellbeing further. There are various areas that combine to create someone’s wellbeing, which leads to a well-balanced, happy and healthy life. I have decided to use new areas in my review going forwards. I thought I would introduce the new categories to you, so you are ready and excited for the next post in the series, due out later this week.  I’ve included headings for the areas I will focus on as well as a little explanation/further detail.

Retrain Brain and Simply-Shine - December 2017 Well-Being Review

This post was updated on 24/03/18

Welcome to the final wellbeing write up for this year-what a crazy thought. Not only have I really enjoyed writing these, the process of reflecting on the past month and planning for the month ahead really helps keep me accountable. It also helps me to pace my tasks throughout the month and plan in self care. So I’m definitely going to continue this theme into next year. So let’s go through this month’s…

Retrain Brain and Simply-Shine - October 2017 Well-Being Review

This post was updated on 24/03/18

My well-being post is a little different this month, because of how things have worked recently. Usually I sit down towards the end of the month and review my progress against a few goals and set my intentions for the month ahead. Over the last few weeks I have been doing an awful lot of self-reflection and thinking of new ideas to try. In other words, thinking about my well-being; the importance of rest but also self-development, has been ongoing.  So for that reason, this week I thought it was worth sitting down and capturing what’s new. Let’s see how this goes!

September Self-Care

Retrain Brain and Simply-Shine - September 2017 Well-Being Review

This post was updated on 24/03/18

 

I love this point in the month when I plan for the month ahead. I value self-care more and more. People who spend their time only taking care of others and neglecting themselves are in danger of deeper levels of unhappiness, low self-esteem, and feelings of resentment. Taking time to care for yourself regularly can make you a better caretaker for others. Not only that but, taking a break from the outside world ensures you relax and allows you to get back to life feeling refreshed. You are then more able to handle life’s stress when we are feeling at our best, physically, mentally and emotionally.
