Dear *<<First Name>>* ,

I have heard the saying that talking to yourself is the first sign of madness - in which case, bring on the straight jacket!!  

I don't talk out loud (at least I dont think I do....) but I have been mightily aware of a pretty destructive internal dialogue that was going on earlier this week where that little inner voice was telling me it was utterly disrespectful to be feeling upbeat at the moment!    Self-talk is something we all do and we are often not very kind to ourselves in those conversations!  I did however have the last word and that little minion is now sulking somewhere in the deep recesses of my mind.  More on that HERE

The week got off to a pretty dreadful start with the weekend seeing the passing of my lovely neighbour, my father-in-law being taken into a hospice for his last days and then another family crisis involving 2 hours in A&E. 

On Monday, I was due to start a 10 day challenge - a free programme to help people think more positively at this time of year when gloom seems to be more of the order.  Pretty ironic as on Day 1 I 'gloomy' didn't even get close to how I was feeling!  However, as I write this we are on Day 5 and it has been going brilliantly.  I have had such lovely comments from people that I am almost disappointed that the next post is not until Monday!  I decided to listen to what other people were saying rather then that blinkin' minion!

Today's topic was all about doing something positive for other people as a way of feeling good yourself.  It feels like a perfect theme to end this week with as by pouring my energy into helping other people, I have helped myself and am feeling an inner strength that I haven't felt for a while! (and if you want to know more about these techniques, carry on reading below)

Until next week,


Caroline Cavanagh,
Adding Zest Ltd

And another thing...

Sharon  · 3:50 Love imaging splitting the day into seasons, I think this is going to help me each day xx
Helen · 0:00 Really interesting thank you
Sharon · 5:01 This is incredible

These are just a few of the comments from the first few days of the 10 day challenge.  The 48 people registered on it have built the most incredible playlist to use as a first aid approach to an 'emotional cut' (aka feeling sad), started to think about Autumn in a different way and are well on their way to creating new habits that are - literally - life changing.

If you are sitting here reading this and even the remotest bit interested - it's not too late to join in (there will not be another one running this year!).  You could be up to speed in less than an hour ( 5 videos all less than 10 mins...) and even if you have a busy weekend, the posts are going to remain available for a good couple of weeks.  All you need is a facebook account and to click HERE
