How To Have A Happy Relationship With Your Phone

phone and journal how to have a happy relationship with your phone_Fotor

I’ve realised recently that so many of us are craving time away from our phone. In the world we live in today our phones determine the way we live our lives and are vital if you have a business, are an entrepreneur or simply want to stay up to date with news. I would not have the career I have today if it wasn’t for my phone. However we are starting to have a love hate relationship and I want to find ways to continue to embrace the digital world without becoming addicted. To learn to love it and use it when necessary but then know when to be a human! Read on to find out what I’m doing to find that balance… 

The One Thing Stealing Your Happiness

Is comparison stealing your happiness and confidence? In today’s world we are bombarded with perfect images of bodies, lifestyles, homes, holidays, careers, relationships and it can quite frankly make your own little life feel a little poop right. In my new video this week, I just wanted to share with you how I felt about this silly little thing we do, comparing our lives to a snapshot of someone elses and then beating ourselves up for not being perfect…

Live Each Day Like You’ve Time Traveled

If you’ve watched the film ‘About Time’ with Rachel McAdams then you might understand the title of this blog post a little better. If you haven’t watched the film, then watch it!

It’s so beautiful, it’s my idea of a perfect film infact, probably not for every one but for soppy sods like me! Let me give you a little insight, it’s basically a romantic comedy about man who has the ability to travel back to times in his life and change things in order to improve his future.

It inspired me to write this post…

Imagine right now if you could actually travel in time…

Do you ever have those moments when you say the wrong thing at the wrong time and just wish so much that you could go back even 10 minutes to not say it. Or wish you could go back to a job interview having known all the questions you’ll be asked. Even consider dramatic situations- accidents, car crashes- what if you could go back and stop them from happening.

But us mere mortals can’t time travel, we have to live with the fact that what we do in the present moment is irreversible, it’s lost, gone forever and our future is determined by the exact moment you are living right now.

So what are you doing in your present moment right now! If your future self could time travel back to today and only today, how would you live right now differently? Would your mood be the same? Would you be arguing, huffing puffing, would you be irritated, moaning, lazy? Or would you live today differently the second time around…

Getting the Balance Right

I am a girl all about balance! It’s what I promote and try to enforce when anyone asks me health/life related advice.

We can often tip the scales too far in one direction and this is when disaster strikes and the world around us falls apart. Okay maybe that was a slight exaggeration but in my experience things always go wrong if I do too much or too little of one thing.

Be At One with Nature

In the first week of September I went on holiday to Croatia. One of Croatia’s main attractions is the fact it is breathtakingly beautiful. Even as we flew into the coast, the picturesque hills patterned with tall green trees left me speechless and that was just the start. Our hotel was built into a cliff face overlooking the ocean and Dalmatian Islands. Everywhere we looked there was another stunning landscape view. I spent the first evening on my balcony watching the sunset over the sea. The sky would change to the most gorgeous pinks, oranges and turquoise. This photo doesn’t even do it justice!
