5 Things I Am Most Grateful For

April 12, 2019

In light of my latest podcast episode talking about gratitude. I thought I would take a few moments to share what I am most grateful for and encourage you to do the same. 

 

 

So here are my 5 things I am most grateful for:

 

1. Life: it seems silly but I am guilty throughout my life of being negative about my life and life in general. We have to appreciate how precious our time really is. We can't allow doom, gloom or negativity overwhelm all the positivity and light in the world. The world is FAR from perfect but if we try and add sparkle to our own little worlds then we are helping to brighten the lights around the world. 

 

2. Family: FAMILY a massive one. We all need our family's support in many different ways, through health, career goals, hobbies and for our own personal reasons. I am so lucky and grateful to have such a fabulous level of family support and I cherish them so very much. They add sparkle to our days and I have and continue to create the best memories with them. 

 

3. Friends: Friends are the people who lift you up, add colour to your grey skies and encourage you to keep blooming. They too help us make amazing memories we forever cherish. They help us with our work/life balance as we enjoy past times, hobbies and interests with one another. I AM THANKFUL TO ALL THE AMAZING PEOPLE in my life. 

 

4. Health: health is a hard one, we often get down and low about our health but we have to be thankful for the level of health we have now. Adapt and accept our circumstances to feel more at peace and choose to keep living as much as possible.

 

5. Ambition: Ambition is hard-wired into me. It keeps me focused, drives me and keeps me in a positive state of mind. Often it can lead to becoming over-worked and overwhelmed but it adds purpose to life, it helps our levels of self-worth and it gives meaning to the tougher days. 

 

I know there is so much more, to be grateful for. I feel these are probably most people's top five but please share if there are any in your top 5 list that aren't covered here. It really helps inspires others to begin focusing on the good that surrounds them which is so helpful when we are going through a dark / rough patch.

COOKING TIPS

#1
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.
 
#2
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.
 
#3
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.
 
#4
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.
 
#5
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.
