THOUGHTS, TASKS AND INSPIRATION TO ENLIGHTEN, STRENGTHEN AND GUID YOU THROUGH THE WEEK.

THE PATH TO FULFILLMENT

Discover Your Own Path

DURING LOCKDOWN AND OUR PERIOD OF ISOLATION HOPEFULLY MANY OF YOU HAVE HAD AN EXCITING JOURNEY OF SELF DISCOVERY. WE MAY NEVER HAVE THIS TIME AGAIN WHERE WE ARE FORCED TO STAY HOME AND THE WORLD OUTSIDE HAS CLOSED ITS DOORS. I KNOW FOR MANY OF YOU THIS HAS BEEN A DIFFICULT TIME BUT I HOPED YOU USE OUR MOST PRECIOUS RESOURCE (TIME) WISELY.

THIS PERIOD OF QUIET REMINDED ME OF DEEPAK CHOPRA’S PATH TO FULFILLMENT AND THERE IS NOT A BETTER TIME FOR ME TO SHARE THOSE WITH YOU.

“TO BECOME ENLIGHTENED, STOP RUNNING ALL THE TIME AND BEGIN TO WALK. ONCE WALKING. SLOW DOWN AND STOP. THEN LOOK AT WHO YOU REALLY ARE !”

SO JUST RELAX AND LET GO.

THERE IS NOTHING TO STUDY,MEMORISE OR LIVE UP TO………..JUST LET GO.

JOJOS STYLELIST TIP : REMEMBER WALK SLOWLY THROUGH LIFE AND TAKE TIME TO STOP OFTEN TO SMELL THE ROSES. THIS COULD BE YOUR AH HA MOMENT.

UNTIL NEXT TIME

DROWSE AND BROWSE

WE LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE WE ARE CONSTANTLY STRIVING FOR MORE, PUSHING OURSELVES TO ACHIEVE. GOAL SETTING, TARGETS AND THEN SETTING NEW GOALS AND TARGETS. EVEN IN THIS MAGAZINE AIMED AT PEOPLE IN LATER LIFE I STILL ENCOURAGE YOU TO SET NEW OBJECTIVES.

BUT AS I WRITE THIS WE ARE STILL IN LOCKDOWN WHERE TIME HAS LOST ITS URGENCY. EVEN THOUGH I KNOW MANY OF YOU ARE STILL WORKING TO BUSY TIMETABLES THERE HAS BECOME A DEGREE OF FELXIBILITY THAT IS RARELY AFFORDED IN THE WORKPLACE.

SO THIS WEEK DARE TO ERASE YOUR SCHEDULE JUST FOR ONE DAY.

JUST DROWSE AND BROWSE JUST ALLOW YOURSELF TO POTTER DO NOTHING EXCEPT NAP, THINK, LIE ON THE SOFA, FLICK THROUGH SOME MAGAZINES OR READ A GREAT BOOK. TRY TO HAVE SOME SILENCE. NO TELEVISION. MAYBE SOME GENTLE MUSIC. IT IS VERY RARE THAT WE AFFORD OURSELVES THIS LUXURY BUT LOCKDOWN IS A PERFECT OPPORTUNITY. YOU WILL BE AMAZED HOW REINVIGORATED YOU WILL FEEL, READY TO FACE THE WORLD AGAIN. TAKE THE PRESSURE OFF FOR ONE DAY.

SO KICKBACK AND CHILL FOLKS !!!

JOJOS STYLELIST TIP: THE ART OF DOING NOTHING SHOULD BE PRACTISED REGULARLY. JUST BE DONT DO.

HEALING RELATIONSHIPS

MOST OF US ARE ISOLATING WITH PARTNERS AND SPOUSES AND SPENDING FAR MORE TIME IN CLOSE PROXIMITY THEN WE WOULD ON A DAILY BASIS. THIS IS A TESTING TIME FOR MANY RELATIONSHIPS. IT IS ESSENTIAL WE LEARN TO APPRECIATE OUR SPOUSES AND PARTNERS. SO THIS WEEK OUR EXERCISE IS TO FILL UP YOUR LOVE BUBBLE AND TRANSFORM YOUR RELATIONSHIPS.

EXERCISE

FIRST SCHEDULE SOME QUIET ALONE TIME TO MEDITATE AND CONTEMPLATE THE THINGS YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR PARTNER. MAKE SOME NOTES IN YOUR GRATITUDE JOURNAL. THIS HELPS TO PUT YOURSELF IN THE RIGHT HEAD SPACE.

THEN…….

EVERY DAY TELL YOUR PARTNER 3 THINGS THAT YOU LOVE ABOUT THEM AND GET THEM TO DO THE SAME BACK TO YOU.

THE TRANSFORMATION THAT FEELING APPRECIATED ON A CONSISTENT BASIS IS SO ENORMOUS I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT ANY RELATIONSHIP CAN BENEFIT FROM THIS. TRY IT WITH ALL THE RELATIONSHIPS IN YOUR LIFE AT THIS TIME. FRIENDS, FAMILY, THE DOG !!! THE ATMOSPHERE WILL CHANGE INSTANTLY ANY NEGATIVITY WILL DISAPPEAR AND YOUR LOVE BUBBLE WILL BE FULL ONCE AGAIN AS YOU GIVE AND RECEIVE IN EQUAL QUANTITES.

TRY IT AS A FAMILY AROUND THE DINNER TABLE. CAN STIMULATE GREAT CONVERSATION AND GET US ALL TALKING TO EACH OTHER AGAIN.

JOJOS STYLELIST TIP: IT IS AMAZING HOW SOMETHING THIS EASY CAN BE SO IMPACTIVE AND SO COMPLETE YET WE NEVER THINK OF DOING IT !!

LETTING GO OF TIME

I HOPE IF YOU ARE READING THIS YOU ARE MANAGING TO STAY FIT AND WELL AND BEATING THE DREADED C WORD.

NOW MANY OF YOU I WOULD GUESS ARE STILL SELF ISOLATING. THIS GIVES YOU THE PERFECT ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY TO REMOVE THE MAN MADE CONSTRUCT OF TIME.

BY REMOVING TIME FROM OUR LIVES IT CAN ALSO RELEASE US FROM STRESS AND PRESSURE. TIME AT THIS MOMENT REALLY HAS LITTLE RELEVANCE AS THE WHOLE WORLD HAS COME TO A STANDSTILL WHILE WE STAND AS ONE AGAINST THE SINGULAR BATTLE WE FACE.

SO TODAY, I WANT YOU TO HIDE ALL THE CLOCKS, REMOVE YOUR WATCH AND HAVE A TV /MEDIA FREE DAY. SWITCH YOUR PHONES OFF. JUST POTTER AND DRIFT AND TUNE INTO WHAT YOUR BODY NEEDS. LISTEN TO MUSIC OR MEDITATION PODCASTS. ONLY EAT WHEN YOU ARE HUNGRY. WAKE AND SLEEP AS YOU ARE GUIDED BY THE SUN. REVEL IN NATURE WATCH THE WILDLIFE GO ABOUT THEIR BUSINESS ……..WITHOUT THEIR WATCHES ON.

FORGET TIME. JUST FOR TODAY. ALTHOUGH ONCE YOU TRY THIS YOU MAY DECIDE TO CONTINUE FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS.

ENJOY GETTING TO KNOW YOURSELF AS WE CONTINUE ON OUR JOURNEY WITH OUR WEEKLY MIDWEEK MANTRAS.

STAY SAFE.

JOJOS STYLELIST TIP: DO NOT SEE SELF ISOLATION AS A PRISON BUT AS A ROUTE TO FREEDOM.

MIDWEEK MANTRA

THIS WEEK I WANTED TO SHARE AN EXCERPT FROM A BOOK I AM CURRENTLY READING VERY POIGNANT FOR OUR TIMES. AS I READ IT THIS WEEK I THOUGHT IT MAY RESOUND WITH YOU AS IT DID WITH ME.

“CHASING WORLDLY DESIRES IS WHAT LIFE IS ALL ABOUT FOR THE VAST MAJORITY OF PEOPLE. BEING STILL AND QUIET, BY THE SAME TOKEN, FEELS VERY UNCOMFORTABLE FOR MANY. THERES NOTHING TO DO …..WE COMPLAIN. YET STILLNESS CAN UNLOCK NEW REALITIES. THE KEY IS THAT PURE CONSCIOUSNESS CONTAINS INFINITE RESOURCES OF CREATIVITY, BLISS,INTELLIGENCE,LOVE AND AWARENESS. BY LIVING CLOSE TO THE SOURCE, YOU HAVE ACCESS TO THIS INFINITE POTENTIAL THAT ALLOWS YOU TO BE A GENUINE CO CREATOR OF A NEW REALITY “

META HUMAN DEEPAK CHOPRA

JOJOS STYLELIST TIP: USING SOME QUALITY TIME TO REALLY GET TO KNOW OUR “TRUE SELF” IS IMPORTANT AS OPPOSED TO OUR “EGO PERSONAILTY’ THAT WE SHOW TO THE REST OF THE WORLD.

STAY SAFE

INSPIRATION AND MENTAL TASKS TO STRENGTHEN THE MIND AND IMPROVE YOU WEEK.

PART TWO: DISCOVER SUCCESS

IF YOU ARE NEW TO THE MIDWEEK MANTRA IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO RECAP LAST WEEKS MANTRA (PART ONE) TO COMPLETE THE TASK.

HOME + HEALTH + RELATIONSHIPS + FINANCE = SUCCESS

SO HOPEFULLY YOU HAVE HAD A DEEP THINK ABOUT THE THREE QUESTIONS SET LAST WEEK AND HOPEFULLY HAD A CHANCE TO DISCUSS IT WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY. YOU SHOULD NOW HAVE FOUR LISTS UNDER THE ABOVE HEADINGS THAT ARE PERSONAL TO YOU.

THIS WEEK LETS LOOK A LITTLE CLOSER UNDER EACH OF THE HEADING AND GIVE YOU SOME FURTHER IDEAS HOW TO IMPROVE THESE AREAS.

HOME

  • ONLY INVITE PEOPLE INTO YOUR HOME WHO WILL RESPECT IT AND THE PEOPLE IN IT.
  • INVEST IN A FENG SHUI CONSULTANT FOR A ONE TIME VISIT, TO CREATE HARMONY IN YOUR LIVING SPACE. OR JUST BUY A BOOK FOR SOME TIPS. I AM A HUGE ADVOCATE OF FENG SHUI…. MILLIONS OF JAPANESE CANNOT BE WRONG ?
  • KEEP YOUR HOME TIDY AND CLEAN IF YOU ARE TOO BUSY HIRE SOME HELP EVEN IF ITS A COUPLE OF HOURS PER WEEK.
  • DECORATE IN RESTFUL COLOURS. NEUTRAL PALETTES WORK WELL.
  • CREATE A HAPPY HOME FULL OF LAUGHTER, GAMES AND SHARING MEALS TOGETHER.

HEALTH

  • OVER 50 ? TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF YOUR FREE NHS ANNUAL CHECK UP. BUT YOU HAVE TO ASK FOR IT !
  • TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR EXERCISE AND DIET. EAT BEAUTIFUL FRESH FOOD AND BUILD AN ACTIVE LIFESTYLE . WALKING WITH FRIENDS FIND A SPORT YOU ENJOY. ORGANISE A TEAM SO IT BECOMES A SOCIAL EVENT. BEATS DRAGGING YOURSELF OFF TO THE GYM!
  • BEAT STRESS WITH EFFECTIVE TIME MANAGEMENT AND MAKING APPOINTMENTS WITH YOURSELF IN YOUR WORK DIARY. THAT WAY YOU WINT FEEL GUILTY IF YOU TELL PEOPLE THAT YOU ALREADY HAVE AN “APPOINTMENT” AT THAT TIME.
  • DRINK MORE WATER. LESS ALCOHOL. ENOUGH SAID.
  • GET IN TOUCH WITH YOUR SPIRITUALITY AND SCHEDULE MEDITATION INTO YOUR DAILY EXISTENCE EVEN IF ITS ONLY FOR 10 MINUTES JUST TO FOCUS DURING A QUIET TIME.

RELATIONSHIPS

  • KEEP IT FUN DONT MAKE IT ABOUT THE BAD STUFF
  • TALK. OPEN AND HONESTLY.
  • CUT OUT THE DRAINS AND SURROUND YOURSELF WITH RADIATORS. SURROUND YOURSELF WITH POSITIVE PEOPLE.
  • APPRECIATE THE GOOD PEOPLE AROUND YOU AND SHOW THEM.
  • SHOW RESPECT BY BEING ON TIME AND NOT CANCELLING AT THE LAST MINUTE.

FINANCE

  • LOTS OF MONEY IS NOT THE ROUTE TO HAPPINESS BUT NEITHER IS NONE. YOU JUST WANT ENOUGH !
  • BORING I KNOW BUT BUDGET MONTHLY. MONEY IS LIKE CALORIES WHAT COMES IN MUST BE BALANCED WITH WHAT GOES OUT. TWO LISTS…. INCOMINGS AND OUTGOINGS.
  • START A SAVINGS ACCOUNT ( MARCUS HAS THE BEST INTEREST EASY ACCESS ACCOUNT RIGHT NOW AT 1.35%) PUT A LITTLE ASIDE EACH MONTH FOR BIG TREATS !!
  • EDUCATE YOUR CHILDREN ABOUT FINANCE . SADLY LACKING IN SCHOOLS. ALSO EDUCATE YOURSELF WITH AN EVENING CLASS/OPEN UNIVERSITY IF YOU NEED EXTRA SKILLS TO EARN EXTRA MONEY OR TO SECURE THAT PROMOTION !
  • CREATE A MOOD BOARD. THIS WORKS. I HAVE DONE THIS WITH MANY OF MY CLIENTS. CUT OUT PICTURES FROM MAGAZINES TO REFLECT THE LIFESTYLE YOU WANT. STICK THEM ON A BOARD AND FOCUS ON THE BOARD REGULARLY. YOUR FOCUS WILL CREATE OPPORTUNITIES THAT YOU MAY HAVE PREVIOUSLY OVERLOOKED.

SO GOOD LUCK STYLISTAS FOR CREATING THE FABULOUS LIFE THAT YOU DESERVE . HERES TO SUCCESS !

JOJOS STYLELIST TIP:Its always a good idea to review your life plan on a regular basis and make changes where necessary to ensure you are on path,

MAKING LIFE MORE BEAUTIFUL

DISCOVER SUCCESS

SUCCESS IS ALL ABOUT BALANCE IN FOUR MAIN AREAS

HOME+HEALTH+RELATIONSHIPS+ FINANCE = SUCCESS

TODAY GIVE SOME THOUGHT TO THESE QUESTIONS. NOTE DOWN YOUR FEELINGS.

  • WHERE I AM NOW ?
  • WHERE DO I WANT TO BE ?
  • HOW DO I GET THERE ?

TRY TO LIST YOUR THOUGHTS AND FINDINGS UNDER THE FOUR HEADINGS…..HOME, HEALTH, RELATIONSHIPS AND FINANCE.

NEXT WEDNESDAYS MIDWEEK MANTRA I WILL SHARE SOME POSITIVE POINTERS IN ALL FOUR AREAS HOW TO GET FROM A TO B.

JOJOS STYLELIST TIP : THIS DOES NOT HAVE TO BE A PRIVATE EXERCISE GATHER YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND CREATE A GROUP DISCUSSION HOW YOU CAN ACCESS SUCCESS !

GOOD LUCK ! HAVE A FABULOUUSSSS WEEK DAAAHLINGS !
