I am a huge believer in positive thinking and I like to consider myself a positive person. Why surround yourself with negative thoughts and feelings when you do not have to?
If you have not already discovered Jessica Ainscough's website The Wellness Warrior check it out as it is a great source of various information from healthy lifestyle choices, to natural diet and juice options, to detox in mind, body and spirit. She has a great website which I encourage you all to have a look through.
This morning she shared on her facebook and twitter page's exciting news about a new transformational film called The Cure Is. Now while some of you sceptics may not believe in all this new age information such as The Secret and other films alike. I urge you to just watch it because no matter what you believe, you can still receive valuable information about the power of your own self and what you think.
The hour long film shares real life stories of people who have healed themselves of illness and are now living healthy and happy lifestyles. You do not have to be sick to understand the messages however. It does not have to get to that stage. If you change yourself now you will live long fulfilled lives that burst with happiness and health.
I know I might sound a bit like a broken record or a whack but an open mind can do wonders. Things that jumped out at me when I was watching the film were;
Love yourself. The most important thing to me. I believe everyone should LOVE who they are.
Do what makes you happy. Whether that may be bushwalking, going to the beach, yoga or other things.
Eat items that you enjoy. Don't make a healthy diet be a chore but a learning and experiencing process.
Forgive. Do not hold on to any past anger.
The video goes through a number of other things so if you want to know more I strongly urge you to make the time to sit down, relax and really watch this video.
Believe in yourself!

Over at my little blog, the sound of crickets chirping has become a regular occurrence these past few months. Something I am not proud of but have not had the chance to correct.
The question of the day stands; How do you maintain a balance in your life and manage your affairs equally?
It is often a common goal for us to strive for some kind of balance between all aspects of our life. Whether that may include; work life, personal life, blogging life, social calendar, personal research and health & fitness.
The career side of my life has gotten a serious workout these past few months hence the lack of blog posts and all-round lack of time spent socialising on beauty sites etc. I am not complaining because as I am a third year university student I am coming up to major components within my entire degree and things are just starting to get seriously interesting. Also I have a brand new casual job (which I love) to earn a little extra cash and I am about to start a summer internship that directly relates to my uni degree. All of this has kept me quite the busy little bee.
I wish I had more time and structure in my life but I am slowly learning what to put first and not to attempt to do everything myself otherwise I will crash and burn.
So a few little tips to help you manage your calender:
- It is okay to have a day off where you literally do nothing but laundry and watch bad tv. You will never stay sane trying to have busy schedules every single day.
- Eat a healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner. No matter how busy you are, you still need to eat otherwise you will lose all your energy and feel tired.
- Relax before bed time. Calm your mind by doing meditation for 30 minutes prior to going to bed. You will sleep better and not be cluttered with too many thoughts.
- Do not alienate the people that matter to you. Go out after work and have one or two drinks with your friends away from work and your house and don't focus the talk too much on work life.
It is sometimes very difficult to keep a balance in your life but you will learn your own strengths and weaknesses as you go along. Eventually you will feel more confident with your structure and your goals.
Do not give up and try to maintain a level head at all times.
Life is what you make it, so do what makes you happy.
