Progress not Perfection: You don't have to fake it to make it

PNP 14

Just between us, what’s really going on? What are you really feeling? Where are you holding it together, putting yourself between two ends to make them meet?

One of the myths of our time is that you have to fake it to make it. You don’t.

Yes, we keep going. We find our resilience. We discover a way to move forward.

But we don’t have to serve up our sanity or our worthiness in order to do it. I promise.

Sending a big hug, a mug of something delicious, and five minutes entirely to yourself.

Progress not Perfection: 10 ways to reset the tone of your day

PNP 10

10 ways to reset the tone of your day:

  1. Choose a word you want to cultivate and write it somewhere you’ll see it
  2. Put some different / new music on and have a dance party
  3. Go for a 10 minute walk and come back feeling fresh
  4. Set a timer for 5 minutes and tidy up your desk
  5. Take five deep, nourishing breaths
  6. Acknowledge everything you’ve already achieved
  7. Let go of non-urgent, non-important tasks
  8. Ask for help, even just a little
  9. Put the kettle on and go wash your face while it boils
  10. Take a moment to remember what you’re working towards

Progress not Perfection: Let's have some fun today!

Okay, so to mix things up a bit, I thought I’d share the reminder to smile, laugh, and enjoy yourself, whatever you’re up to today.

For me, music is vital. It can change my mood, help me feel more connected, and I LOVE to sing and dance along – all good things!

I also love to laugh. It helps get my energy up. Carpool Karaoke, Eddie Izzard, and Peter Kay are all guaranteed to improve my mood.

What would be really fun for you today?

Get your favourite playlist on, or take 10 minutes to watch something funny.

Here are some of my playlists to help get you going:

Vintage Christmas

Gumption / Girl Power

Give Me Happiness (and make me dance)

Enjoy!
