I have spent decades helping others to do their best in business and in life. But, ironically, it took me a lot longer to learn to truly care for myself … in fact, it’s still a work in progress and I see now how it always will be (this is exciting, not exhausting!).
Do you recognize the need to (and potential beauty of) slowing down but find it super challenging to actually do so? Over the years, I’ve learned (from my own struggles and breakthroughs) that having a “toolbox” full of simple daily rituals (that I understand) helps me to press my own pause button and fuels me with the kind of energy that I want to carry through my day … every day! Say Yes is a collection of some of my favourite practices and trusted perspectives that I want to share with you and then for you to share with others.
SAY YES, Practical Self-Care, Doable Stress Relief, and Optimistic Thoughts To Boost Your Wellness Intelligence is an intelligent and inspiring guide that will introduce you to a collection of functional practices and insightful perspectives to rely on in your everyday life. Unusually practical and easily absorbed, Say Yes will help you press the pause button on the pace of modern-day life. This friendly book, full of colourful wellness intelligence, will create the conditions for you to live, move, breathe, sleep, eat, shop, and love better … on your own terms.
It’s never too late to change anything … or everything. If you are reading this, and you are out of shape, burned out, unhappy with your profession, dissatisfied with your personal life, concerned about your performance, or even bored, today is the day to SAY YES. Start with one small thing … keep adding the little bits of “good” in and soon the good you’ve said yes to will displace the stuff you deem as crappy. The fear of change pales in comparison to the fear you might feel of staying where you are.
Every day comes with choices.
Tomorrow will also.
And so will the next day.
Say yes to exercise, or not.
Say yes to starting a business, or not.
Say yes to going to a farmers’ market, or not.
Say yes to trying to get better at something, or not.
Say yes to playing in nature, or not.
Say yes to practising the art of breathing, or not.
Say yes to pursuing your purpose, or not.
Say yes to expressing gratitude to someone you love, or not.
Say yes to supporting a small, local business, or not.
Say yes to following your heart, or not.
We are so fortunate to have the opportunity to make so many decisions.
We have this life.
Some of the best forms of self-care are simple … there are many in the pages in this book. From dancing to your favourite song to gargling, take it one page at a time and notice how you feel when you practice, and the more you feel good, the more you’re going to want to practice … the more you will want to learn. Amazing habits will be born. And you will be able to pass what you’ve said yes to onto others.
If saying yes to yourself might feel like the last thing you can take on right now, then saying yes to yourself has never been more important for you. I hope that my practical approach, the colourful pages, and non-preachy thoughts will help you gently ease your way into deeply meaningful practices that feel really great to you!
I didn’t write this book to “should” you into doing anything … there is no one-size-fits-all plan … you are your own best expert. It’s all up to you to SAY YES. I hope what I’ve shared helps you look after yourself … and helps you look after others.
