If you missed even a day of either of these things, you'd definitely notice...!
What would you LOVE to add into your daily routine? Exercise? Meditation? Journalling? Where can you fit this in? If daily isn't possible, every second day?
Here are some of my non-negotiables:
If I miss any of these things, I can feel a difference.
I would love to add journalling and meditation to my daily routine, so that's what I will be working on. What about you?
I helped many women create space to add exercise as a non-negotiable or themselves last year. If you'd like to do the same, get in touch and we can get started! email@example.com www.edenwellness.ie

My office is on a fairly busy road. It can be quite noisy outside and there are often people walking past, chatting to each other or on the phone. When I was thinking of taking on the space, a few people asked me, 'would the busy-ness not bother you? Don't you need a quieter, calmer environment?'
While it is lovely to have peace and quiet, the foundation of my work lies in this: we cannot control what goes on around us, whether that's at home or at work. But we can learn to control what goes on within. You can be in the midst of chaos and bring ourselves to a sense of calm. Maybe you work in retail, a place full of customers, or in a hospital, with no control over how much pressure you're going to be under. You might live in a house of constantly fighting teenagers. Whatever your situation, you can learn to control how YOU choose to feel.
Hypnosis/hypnotherapy is not relaxation. You don't need quiet for it to work. It is true that relaxation can be a lovely side effect - but it is not part of the hypnotherapy itself. The side effect is created by you, in your imagination, and so many clients say they heard the traffic outside but then it faded into the background. They forgot about it. They went within.
The same is said in my weekly meditation group. They've learned to notice the contrast between the busy-ness outside the front door, and the calmness within the room. It can even enhance their meditation.
I grew up in London - there was constant noise. We'd hear and be in the midst of traffic, all day and night, people rushing about, trains, buses, planes overhead. But we don't know any different. We didn't even flinch when police cars sped past numerous times a day. Many of my hypnotherapy colleagues work in far, far noisier offices than mine. But, how I noticed the difference when I moved over here. It actually took a lot to get used to it, as lovely as it is.
Yes - going to a quiet place - be it a retreat, or a beach holiday, or anything like that is wonderful. But you don't have to wait for an opportunity like that to come along in order to clear your head.
When you can control your inner world no matter what is going on around you, you have a real power there. After all, we've found that out more than ever in the last few years.
Take your mind to a place of focus, go within, and notice how your outer reality can change as result....

'I'm Fine!' What lies beneath...
A few weeks after this was taken, I was prescribed anti depressants (not for the first time) and referred for 6 months of counselling. My baby boy was 5 months old.
Having battled with my mind in the past, I felt I didn’t need help, especially as it is part of my job to help people with their minds. I thought I would be failing if I couldn’t sort things out myself. I thought it would look bad if I ever told anyone.
I had a number of traumatic life events during my pregnancy, including losing my Mum to cancer, and all the grief that I’d tried to protect my baby from finally came out after he was born - not to mention the usual cocktail of emotions we have after having a baby. There’s a story about his birth too, but that’s for another post..!
I eventually got help, not because I asked for it, but because my husband contacted the health nurse. He told me she would be visiting to check on the baby – but she was actually visiting to check on me.
I agreed to go to my GP because anything was better than the numbness I was feeling. I took the medication and went for the help, which helped me bring myself out of the hole I’d fallen into, and I could start to see clearly again. It was like a fog was lifting.
Why am I sharing this?
I want you to know I’m not just sitting opposite you dishing out advice or reeling off the same stuff I do to everyone. I know what it’s like to feel that despair, that helplessness, and that exhaustion when you feel there’s nothing you can do but keep going. We all feel it in different ways, and this was just one of my experiences.
I am also sharing it as a reminder that people in a difficult place can still smile and look happy, even feel moments of happiness, but feel like they’re drowning at the same time.
Just because I use what are considered to be ‘alternative’ methods in my work (they’re actually complementary, to work alongside or on their own), it doesn’t mean I discourage anything else. Whatever it takes to help you to feel better, do it. I did… and I would again.
You know where I am if you want to ask anything at all. x
