I know it is early, but we have been “winter styling” and turned our home into a nordic ski lodge!!! I cannot tell you how happy this has made me! it feels super cosy and I just feel so happy to stay in and snuggle down ready for Christmas.
We have sleds, reindeers, (not real ones obviously, although how lovely would that be!😍) fairy lights, 2 Christmas trees, vintage skis, skates and snow shoes!!! We really have gone to town, or chalet I should say! So instead of buying presents this is our gift to ourselves. This December is also our 5th wedding anniversary so being super cosy and creating a space that fills our eyes and hearts with things that create joy and memories felt so important this year.
How are your plans? Does it excite you or fill you with dread? I know I have had some like that some years that I have dreaded it, for sure. It will be a very different one this year for us all I am sure in many ways.
If you would like to join me online for Our December program please do,
with a fun pre Christmas week, fancy dress, pjs, shades of red, green, white all optional to create some festive fun, plus a social zoom Christmas get together, bring your mulled wine or favourite tipple and prepare to play!😍😂
I look forward to spending December with you!

Join me for this fabulous course in how to make the most of your meditations and understand the reasoning of journaling. How and why and what wisdoms are within it and demystifying everything around it.
We will go into journaling, unpacking any myths and creating a sense of safety around journaling and self permissions and limitations.
You will Be given set meditations to try, and unpack them. No rights or wrong here, just understanding different perspectives to open new ways of thinking and evolving.
Helping find clarity on your thoughts and insights in a safe supportive way
Why is this course something I should invest in ?
This combination is very powerful to helping you understand you in a more in-depth way. In a supportive group you have a chance to listen and or share if you are comfortable, this will help you to understand and start to see how we are all related and connected and how you will start to see your own innate wisdoms evolve and show up more readily and freely.
The power is you! This is a facilitated session to help with inner growth to help you find more ease, joy and peace in your life, and as a by product help you connect to others and improve relationships and give you the confidence to find your own voice.
I would love to see you on this course.

November Term, an enriched program of Mind, Body, Soul with its influences being about embodiment, feeling, sensing, awakening, somatic and interoception.
Interoception– defined as the internal state of the body. It encompasses the brain’s process of integrating signals relayed from the body allowing for nuanced representation of the physiological state of the body. Why is this important? For maintaining homeostatis in the body and potentially facilitating self awareness. Misrepresentations of internal states, disconnection, have been suggested to underlie anxiety and depression.
When you can experience your body, everything can fall into place from movement itself, clarity of thought, personal relationships, releasing tensions emotional and physical. This topic alone can send me off into a whole realm of topics and discussions hence why I am opening up the ABC to Wellbeing Program to help you create, experience and understand it in an embodied sense. This course will be so valuable and life changing and even enabling you to get even more joy, peace, ease and flow out of everyday life, work, relationships to self and others, including seeing more depth into our monthly programs. So please register your interest, maybe even receive the ABC Wellbeing program for a gift for YOU or a loved one, friend for Christmas!
Anyway, back to November, 😊, the nights are drawing in, so being mindful of the season, and circadian rhythms the evening sessions will be gentle or strength based but with both you will be winding down early and having 15 minutes of relaxation/meditation to settle energies and the parasympathetic nervous system into a rested state, perfect to release the days stress and prepare the body and mind for goodnights sleep. Remember to follow this through with switching off gadgets well before bedtime, choosing your lights for your house to be soft and warm not harsh lights as this messes up the circadian rhythm , eat earlier in the evening, avoid stress provoking situations, news and TV will also help.
Thursday Barre is back! use a table, worktop, window ledge or even a wall. A whole body standing push, pull, arc and curl for the most beautiful sensory stretch session , In my opinion.😊
Please share the program so others can join us and benefit and feel the best they can be, everyday !
Have a wonderful day
much love Sue 🌟🙏🏼🤍

Sometimes I can literally just keep hitting snooze over and over and struggle to want to get up, mostly due to being menopausal and that disrupting my sleep.
Sleep is so important to our wellbeing, and getting to sleep easily at the end of the day, surprisingly begins with getting up easily in the morning (more than the other way around!), so try this energiser to get up and start your day on the right footing. I will cover getting to sleep at the end of the day in another podcast later.
I have noticed over many years that I need to make a conscious choice to get up straight away, and definitely NOT listen to that old narrative that can buzz around my head, and and allow me to habitually press snooze.
It is about making that conscious decision, yes, making that decision and being responsible for your thoughts. So, I have made this little 5 minute energiser to inspire my lovely clients, and hopefully to you too, to change that. This will help get you to get up by introducing some gentle moves and and good intentions to start your day the best way.
Being only 5 minutes it is so doable. no excuses, it’s less time than the snooze gap, try it out and let me know what you think and if it helps.
Please subscribe, rate and review the podcast, this may help others find the positive benefit of this energiser – thank you.
