YOUR TIME TO SHINE – HOW TO GET INSPIRED EFFORTLESSLY
And what does a new year hold? Clean account books. Bare diaries. Three hundred and sixty-five new days, neatly parcelled into weeks, months, seasons.. A chunk of time, of life…those few first notes like an orchestra tuning up before the play begins.” – Phyllis Nicholson
You can look to the year ahead with either anticipation or with dread. Maybe last year had struggles and challenges you would prefer to leave behind.
Perhaps your deepest desire is to start the new year fresh with a clean slate and the inspiration and motivation to make this your best year yet?
If that is the case, let’s do it together and let’s have fun doing it!
You probably already know the importance of positive self talk. In almost every personal development book you will hear the benefits about positive affirmations, and if you have tried it out…it’s true they really do work! The secret is that you don’t have to stand in front of the mirror and repeat them over and over, or make a mantra of them during your spin class.
You can make them a natural and enjoyable part of your day by creating an inspirational iTunes playlist to listen to while your heading to and from work, taking a walk around the block on your break to clear you head or at the gym.
Songs are natural affirmations that stir our emotions and groove pathways in our mind as we find ourselves humming them throughout the day. So this year consciously choose the ‘soundtrack’ to your life.
Make them positive and inspiring and become aware of how you feel when listening to them.
Here’s the top 10 songs on our Goddess inspiration playlist:
- Feeling Good – Nina Simone
