Keep going….you’ve got this!

It’s the small, often subtle steps that we take on a daily basis that lead to the sort of substantial change that seems to suddenly appear as if from nowhere. So often we give up on things right at the point that they are just about to appear - like in all good films...

The Lure Of Overthinking

The Lure Of Overthinking

Every now and then I fall for it. I get swept into existing in life outside of the now. My focus, my thoughts and my energy get drawn into living in the past and future. Not in a productive way, of the bare minimum time needed to be spent there to be able to learn...

Lifestyle changes…..that work.

Lifestyle changes…..that work.

So January is ticking along then. Did you make any New Year resolutions? And if you did, how are you getting on? I don’t tend to make them myself, well I do, but not necessarily at New Year, just at any time when I feel there are changes that need to be made. Why do I...

10 Simple Ways To Make Each Day Easier

Happy New Year everyone!   Whatever has been, let go of. Let go of it all. The good, the bad, and the ugly. Start afresh as if everything were possible. Start again, today, and every day. What's done is done, what wasn't perhaps still could be, or if not draw a...

Gratitude and my Christmas wish for you!

Gratitude and my Christmas wish for you!

Last week I was in an organisation talking about gratitude. It seems apt given the time of the year. That said, gratitude can mean many things depending on what is going on in life. As I write this I am writing it in parts to all of you, whatever your life looks like...

Redirect Your Junk Thoughts!

Redirect Your Junk Thoughts!

"Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world." Desmond Tutu   This morning I found myself thinking about something that is in no way useful. I was pondering over a conversation that two people may...

When you see the worst in yourself…..

When you see the worst in yourself…..

Can you refuse to limit yourself to that..... You can not limit yourself to the worst that you see because you have also seen your brilliance. You have seen the part of you that is inspired, full of love, and full of potential. How can you ignore that? The difficulty...

You Get To Choose! 

You Get To Choose!

Your Response – Ability Is Your Responsibility

Your Response – Ability Is Your Responsibility

Just think about that for a moment…. Your Response - Ability Is Your Responsibility If you have ever paid attention to where your focus is for any length of time you will have noticed that you spend much of your energy thinking about what other people are or aren’t...

Autumn – Things Fall Away And That’s OK

Autumn – Things Fall Away And That’s OK

As I walked around the nature reserve today on the autumnal carpet of golden leaves I was reflecting on how trees go through the seasonal changes. In autumn their bright green leaves turn colour before they lose them completely. They go through the winter standing...

Why Meditate?

Why Meditate?

I was in an organisation the other week delivering an introductory meditation session. The majority of the group had never tried to meditate before but were all open to having a go. When I asked the group at the beginning of the session what they hoped to gain from it...

Every thought, word, choice and action…

Every thought, word, choice and action…

Living in a time when we are looking for ways to make greener choices and to become more energy efficient it seems fitting to assess how we ourselves spend our own time and energy. Every single thought, word, choice, and action takes time and energy so are you using...

Honest Communication

Honest Communication

I am noticing a bit of a theme with some of the problems people seem to be having at the moment and that is one of not really feeling able to say what they think, feel or mean. This seems to br creating so much confusion and misinterpretation that I wonder how much...

Seeking approval from others

Seeking approval from others

A fear of what other people think of us can hold us back so much in life and as you are probably now aware from last week’s blog https://www.louiselloyd.life/self-acceptance-and-inner-peace/  seeking anyone else's approval is really us seeking our own approval, and we...

Self Acceptance And Inner Peace

Time To Make A Decision?

Time To Make A Decision?

I know, I know... I have been talking A LOT about time lately. It's not just because I have a workshop coming up in September on how we use our time here on earth. It is because I really care about how I am using my time on earth and I care about how YOU are using...

Time – To Get Your Life Back

Time – To Get Your Life Back

Time management isn’t all about time management. If you have tried to manage your time and it hasn’t helped it’s probably because you only tried a very small part of what you really needed. You probably also tried to fix the symptoms not the problem and we all know...

So, tonight it has finally happened then.

So, tonight it has finally happened then.

I have been called to fully own being drawn to being a vegan. Someone I know and like has posted a photo of a calf whilst they were out walking tonight and I commented on his post with a #vegan response. Even though currently I am a vegetarian moving towards vegan. It...

Time – One Of The Most Important Relationships We Have

Time – One Of The Most Important Relationships We Have

Time, or lack of, is one of the most common things people talk to me about when I am covering stress management and wellbeing. Commonly people mention too much to do in too little time. They struggle with work life balance as well as time spent with others and time...

I Feel Grateful, And Yet I’m Struggling Right Now…

Let me explain why. I am in a phase of my life when I am feeling humble and the upmost gratitude. Because of this I am finding it hard to relate to some of the things people are saying lately. The last year has been a particularly heart opening year for me. It started...

Practicing Mindfulness Comes With A Responsibility

If you have come across mindfulness you can relate to it as ‘being more aware of the present moment’ and probably like the idea that doing that will in some way bring about greater peace. With time and practice that is indeed one of the likely side effects of an...
