March is the month for Spring...cleaning.

And I'm not talking about putting your rugs into the rug wash just yet. Usually this is the case by now but the horses appear to still be in their heavy weight rugs. I'm sure this time last year the horses were rugless!

Being an avid Instagram fan, I started following a lovely lady quite some time ago under the Instagram handle of www.instagram.com/howtomakefriendsuk. Gemma engages with her followers with daily uplifting posts and bright and breezy Insta stories. Gemma's positive vibe is seriously contagious, which is why I wanted to take part in her #MarchMovement detox challenge. My three pledges to myself are:

Apologising for no reason.

Stop saying "sorry" for no reason. I have a bad habit of starting sentences with, "Sorry to bother you." I am a really polite person and pretty inoffensive, so why I feel the need to constantly apologise for no reason is beyond me. Its a habit I have had from a very young age. And now at the age of 30, I have decided to do my very best to put a stop to it.

Worrying about things that are out of my control.

My mum has always said I was born worrying. Worrying it a total waste of energy, it can make you feel tired and unmotivated amongst other negative feelings. Something I have recently learnt is to let go of the things that are out of my control. I always strive to do everything to the best of my ability, so if that's not enough then I know I have done all I can and I need to just let the situation be as it is. When things are worrying me or playing on my mind, I think about how I want that situation to go by playing it out in my mind, and then try not to allow the feelings of worry to enter my mind thereafter. I can certainly say I feel far happier for it. It is easier said than done, but with practice is does get a little easier.

Worry is a waste of good energy.

 

Allowing myself time to relax and just be in the moment.

We live in a very fast paced world. I'm sure I'm not alone when I say I have 101 things going on in my mind at any one time. I can be seriously hard on myself with making sure I complete everything on my to do list each day. That could be from working Lizzy, to work related tasks, or writing blogs and content. I used to sit up until 1am in the morning, sometimes later trying to complete things that needed to be done. What I realised is that I am not very productive at all when I'm tired, nor is it healthy or sociable. I have learnt to manage my weekly tasks over more days, giving myself a little more time to just relax each evening. If I run out of time to complete everything that day, then I simply rearrange my todolist to suit without giving myself a hard time about it.

I love to inspire people, but I also love to be inspired too! Gemma is one of those amazing people who gives instant positive vibes and inspiration, which is why I wanted to share this with you all because I have gained so much from her positivity myself.
