I hope that you have had a great Christmas. To start the new year off the right way, I recommend holding off on certain new year resolutions. We are mid winter and that is not a great time to start making changes to our diet or exercise regimes.

The days are still dark and short, it’s cold and wet and nature is hibernating. So tune in to nature and rest your body as much as it needs. Include lots of self care after the indulgence of Christmas. It’s easy to over-do it over Christmas so cut back on the over-indulgence and you’ll start to feel better.

Spring is a much easier time for us to start more exercise or change our diet. The earth starts to wake up with new life and our energy levels rise. So don’t go against the flow of nature and instead work with her.

So practice self care and look after yourself instead of beating yourself for not making lots of resolutions!

Take care

Happy 2015

Happy New Year…a little late perhaps. But I would genuinely like to wish you all the very best for 2015. Have you set resolutions and dropped them already?

That’s why I choose not to set resolutions myself. It’s all too easy to get caught up in the resolutions buzz and then not really commit to them. Some people make loads of resolutions and then give up simply because it’s not practical to quit smoking, lose weight, get fit and find a new job all at the same time! Too many changes all at once spell disaster.

If you really want to change your life, in my opinion you need to do it gradually. Here are my top 5 tips:

  • Commit to the change
  • Be accountable (your friend, family, colleagues or coach can help you with this)
  • Take baby steps
  • Use #EFT to eliminate your fears, blocks etc
  • Celebrate small milestones along the way

If you would like some help making changes this year, then I am here to help. I offer 121 sessions in Exeter and Tavistock in Devon and Skype sessions worldwide.

Happy New Year 2012

Wishing you a wonderful year ahead. I hope that 2012 brings you lots of fun, success, joy & peace.

Have you set yourself New Year Resolutions? Do you do this every year and then give up on them before January is out? How about setting yourself goals instead?

Set big goals if you always achieve your goals easily. Set smaller goals if you struggle with your goals. Start with baby steps if you find your goals very challenging. Chunk them down into smaller goals so that you build on your success.

Write a list of all the things that usually stop you achieving your goals and tap on them. Keep tapping as the challenges appear. Look for patterns and tap on these especially.

Blessings for the year ahead.

Keep tapping!

New Years Resolutions vs Specific Goals

Happy New Year. I hope you have had a lovely Christmas. Wishing you a wonderful 2011.

It might just seem like a strange idea for me to suggest you don’t make any new year’s resolutions. I have good reasons:

  • People usually make them halfheartedly
  • They are usually very generic and not specific, e.g. lose weight, go to the gym more, eat more healthily
  • People set too many at the same time
  • Most people give up by the end of January

You see the trouble is, people often make new year’s resolutions not because they want to but because they feel they have to. People ask what your new year’s resolution is and they feel they have to give an answer.


Instead of just giving a generic answer like lose weight, how about you actually spend some time instead working out proper, specific goals. Use the SMART way of writing your goal – Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely. Always include a date for your goal and a measurable outcome.

Think about what it is you actually want to achieve. How do you want to feel? So instead of just saying I want to lose weight, you could set a goal like this instead:

By 31st March 2011 I will weigh ………. (insert your goal weight).

Now write down how you will look, feel and any sounds that are important to your goal (e.g. hearing people congratulate you on how good you look). Put your goal somewhere where you will see it. Read it regularly.

If it seems too big, then break it down into smaller steps.

E.g. By 14th January I will weigh ……….(insert intermediate goal weight). Repeat these smaller goals, until you have achieved your bigger goal.

It is also important to congratulate yourself and celebrate your success. So have something specific in mind for when you have achieved your goal. For example, you could treat yourself to a new outfit when you have reached your ideal weight, or a new hairstyle. Whatever it is this will help with your motivation towards achieving your goal.

Write out your goals now and how you want to feel when you have achieved them. In upcoming articles I will be writing more about using EFT to help you lose weight. EFT can be used to help you achieve any goal. You can use EFT to help you if you are struggling with motivation, lack of confidence, not believing in yourself, failures in the past etc. It really is a flexible tool that can help you in many different ways to achieve your goals.

“A New Year’s resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other.”

Here’s to your success.

Happy New Year Resolutions

Happy New Year!

I hope that you’ve had a wonderful Christmas and are ready to face the new year.

This is traditionally the time of year when people make new year’s resolutions. Well maybe you’ve made them before and they fell by the way side by the end of January (or even the middle of Jan!). It doesn’t have to be that way. You see, many people have a small setback and think, oh that’s it – I’ve blown it. Might as well give up. There then follows that inner dialogue – you know the one – I’m never good at new year’s resolutions. I always give up on things. I’m never good at sticking to new things. I’m not good enough and on it goes. Sound familiar?

When you learnt to walk, you didn’t give up the first time you fell over. You kept going and fell over many times. You just kept getting up more times than you fell over. That’s one of the keys. The other is to use a simple tool to help you, with all of that negative self talk. It’s called EFT or Emotional Freedom Techniques.

Here’s a great video you can tap along with by Fiona McCallion:


The other thing to do is to actually write down your resolution in the form of a goal. Be specific. Use numbers and dates etc. So if you are wanting to lose weight – write down your ideal weight and when you want to achieve this by. Set yourself a challenge and be realistic at the same time. It’s no good setting yourself a target of losing 2 stone in a month – it just won’t happen, so you’re setting yourself up for a fall from the beginning.

Next, visualise yourself having achieved your goal. This step is really important. Step into yourself at your ideal weight – how good do you feel? Look in the mirror at your new self & admire how you look. How great your body feels. How much more energy you have. Your new zest for life.

Get the idea? Make the picture big & bright, with lots of colours. Turn up the feelings and the sounds. Really feel it. Now step out of the picture and hold it in your hands. Feel yourself being drawn towards your goal and go for it!

So now, what is your new year’s resolution?

If you want some help with yours, I’d love to help you get rid of that negative self talk, help you eliminate your cravings and help you bust your bad behaviours.
