Blue Monday – Terrific Tuesday

Hypnotherapy coventry

Apparently yesterday was Blue Monday. It’s the most depressing day of the year.

The money has run out, it’s cold, the resolutions are hard work, the lack or parties and events is getting to us and if you’ve decided to have a dry January then it’s feeling tough.

I took the above picture this morning when I was walking the dog.

I’m no better off than I was yesterday (but the mortgage is covered, I can have the heating on without worrying and there’s food in the fridge)

It’s still blooming cold (but I can heat my house and wear big fluffy jumpers, scarves and socks when I go walking in the bright sunshine)

The resolutions are easy (if you approach them in the right way – make habits not resolutions – I will post more on this soon)

I have made plans for February and March so I have things to look forward to

and finally the dry January thing is not something I subscribe to (but having said that I rarely drink anyway so it wouldn’t really bother me)

The sun is shining somewhere and the most depressing day of the year is already behind us. Spring is on it’s way, but I don’t want to wait until then to be happy.

Have a Terrific Tuesday x

My indoor sky diving adventure

Yes. that slightly distorted, yet smiling face, is mine!

Yesterday I went indoor skydiving.

It was ace.

You don’t have to be physically fit or mega flexible and it’s ok if you don’t like heights (just don’t get the instructor to take you up for a spin).

It’s one of those really cool adventure things you can do with little/no preparation and leaves you with no pain or problems – just a big old smile on your face.

When we were on our way home, my partner said to me ‘ I think I’ve found something that’s more fun than snowboarding’ I replied that I think this wins hands down as the first time I went snowboarding I could barely walk the next day.

It was an amazing feeling to genuinely feel like I was flying on a cushion of air, but you know what the best thing a bout it was? The fact that I’m now looking for something else new to try.

Don’t get me wrong – I will definitely be doing this again ( in fact we’ve already booked up to learn some new moves and tricks)  but I want to find something else new and amazing too.

We can all get a bit stuck in our routines from time to time, and when we try something new it can encourage us to try more and more new things.

So, if you haven’t done anything new for a while – what are you going to try?

I’m asking because I’m looking for ideas 🙂

Today’s Nut is tomorrows Oak

Don’t give up.

Every mighty oak was once just a nut that held it’s ground.

Dig deep, establish roots, reach for the sky and soak up the sun.
