We all feel negative from time to time, like our walls are caving in and there is no way out? Where is light? Believe me, there is always a light.
Key questions to ask yourself.
1. Is this worth getting upset over?
Normally the answer is no, so that right there is when worries should fade and we should choose to focus on things that make us happy.
2. What is the lesson here? What can I learn from this?
Often or not there is always something that we can use as a stepping stone towards bigger and greater goals.
3. Am I overthinking and over-reacting to a situation?
We are all guilty of it - we make judgements and jump to conclusions. It is best to step back and what will be, will be. Overthinking or creating a drama won't solve the issue, it will only heighten the issues.
4. What is the positive I can take away from this?
Focusing on the positives will only inspire you to move closer to your dreams.
5. How is this person making me a better person?
Negative people bring with the negative vibes. There is enough doom and gloom in our lives as it is. We need to find light and create light whether possible. Surround yourself with positive people who will bring with them the positive vibes to inspire you not bring you down.
6.Can I control the situation?
Really take a moment and see if it is at all possible to 'change the direction of the wind', if not then things you can't change aren't worth worrying about. If you do have control, use it wisely.
7. What can I do right now to make me feel better?
Pamper yourself with your favourite movies, foods and surround yourself with people who bring you joy.
8. How can I see the situation with love?
It is often hard not to be cruel when you are hurting inside. Remember love is the best medicine and the biggest healer. So dishing it out helps it come your way too and with a dose of love ANYONE can begin to feel better.
Don't let the negative bring you down, let them be the reason why you keep getting back up!

Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
DO NOT FEAR CARBS - THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY! CARB UP!!
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN.
Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
