Wellbeing and Woes

Wellbeing and Woes

I haven’t provided an update on my wellbeing for a little while. Maybe that’s because I have been feeling a little lost with it. Maybe even despondant. Dealing with a chronic illness with unpredictable symptoms is not easy. But what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger, yes? So what has been going on? What have I been doing for my wellbeing and is it okay?

Wellbeing Goals to Pace Myself

Wellbeing Goals to Pace Myself

Today is Wellbeing Wednesday! The blog series where I share my plans for my wellbeing for the month ahead. I hope to inspire you to be equally intentional about your wellbeing and realise that self-care isn’t selfish. In fact, it is essential for a happy and harmonious life. Self-care is anything that inspires you and makes you happy. It boosts your mood and equips you deal with what life may through your way.

If you’ve read previous blog posts in the series you’ll know that I set myself goals based on specific headings, looking a number of wellbeing needs. I’ll take you through what I mean…

How I’ve planned my wellbeing to bring joy in June!

Today is my Wellbeing Wednesday! The first Wednesday of the month where I share how I’ve planned my wellbeing for the month ahead.  To read a previous post in this series, click here. and here. I am so excited for this month. I have friends visiting this weekend, then seeing other close friends the week after. Then later in the month, husband and I are going away to Cyprus for a week. I can’t tell you how much I am looking forward to this. We don’t go abroad very often-together. My husband travels a lot for business and it is thanks to that we get to go into the First Class Lounge at the airport and are travelling business class! A glass of Champagne? Ah if I must…

We also have a UK weekend break at the end of June with my husband’s kids. More travelling, exploring and time together. So as I’ll be away from home for nearly two weeks, it is important that the goals;

  • are manageable (realistic in the time-frame) and I am not trying to take on too much. It is important to enjoy my time away too!
  • are goals that I can work on from anywhere

So read on to find out what goals I’ve set myself for the month of June.

How My Wellbeing Review Left Me Emotional

How My Wellbeing Review Left Me Emotional

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

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…
