Happy New Year
I don’t know if you saw a recent video I posted on Facebook (it’s so cute; you have to see it). This little girl explains precisely how I feel about New Year’s resolutions: *pulls a grumpy face* Here’s the thing:
Change doesn’t happen in one big moment. It’s thousands of little moments which lead to any change.
You are in charge of those changes
After Christmas comes new plans, new year and a brand new you! Except it’s not quite like that is it? I don’t know about you but all my days are mixed up. I can’t seem to get back in the zone.
Are you still hibernating?
If you are resisting, then maybe you need some more time off to rejuvenate. Or maybe you know that big change is on the horizon and that feels scary. Be gentle with yourself and let your New Year start when you are ready. Save this blog post for when you are – it will come in really handy. If you are feeling a bit stuck, then here is a quick list to help you:
Free + Helpful Smiley Resources
1) A Free Planning Printable for Your Family
I dug out from this old blog post. It’s quick and easy for you busy people. Goals are more powerful when we write them down.
2) Free Journaling App
Lots of people resist journaling as they fear other people’s judgement. Writing it down does not mean that it’s set in stone. It’s more of a Lessons Learnt Exercise instead of beating yourself up or adding to your pile of guilt. You can be sure of a private experience if you download the free app Penzu which allows you to offload to your heart’s content.
Look back with happiness at how far you and your family have come instead of comparing yourself to others. This is my #bestnine from Instagram and it made me smile from ear to ear. What a year it’s been: I travelled to Dubai and Oz, I did a kids’ yoga course, I started Chatty Club, launched my You Tube Channel created new VIP products, got a shout out in the Financial Times and won the Kallikids award for the UK’s Best Family Service. Ok stop…showing off now! Well I’m not really I’m proud and you should be too. What went well for you and your family?
4) Get Motivated
If re-living successes and happy moments from last year, don’t fire you up, then why don’t you dive deep into my blog and check out my pearls of wisdom on anger, anxiety, boundaries, creativity, relaxation and everything your family needs to live in harmony. People over look this when they ring me to enquire about coaching. They think I have all these secret answers or a magical pill. Sorry to disappoint but I don’t! Just read the blog. How about 10 Ideas to Shake Up Your Family’s Morning Routine or Smiley’s Top Tips for Creating Healthy Habits in 2017.
Prevention is better than cure
PLEASE STOP THINKING THAT YOU CAN FIX, CONTROL OR MAKE YOUR CHILDREN HAPPY. YOU CAN’T!
Ok shouting now – sorry (not sorry!) I want you to hear me.
What can you do?
1) Be the best version of yourself, create your own healthy habits and increase your emotional intelligence. You can read about the 10 Things That Need to Be Found On Every Parent’s To Do List
2) Give your child a tool kit which will help them to discover for themselves whilst having fun and feeling good about themselves
As I said in the beginning, I have a problem with NY’s resolutions too. There is not one time to change.
Every day we have a choice to do something (one tiny thing) differently and every day we can learn, grow, improve, adjust and love a little bit more ❤️
What will you do tomorrow?
