The worst thing we can do is compare our life to others based on Instagram/ Facebook posts!
.
I have been guilty of this in the past, and it made me feel shit, inadequate and depressed... if you're feeling a little fragile or down then stay away from social media for a week or two.... concentrate on YOU. Make a gratitude list and indulge in some quality you time 💟 .
Stop comparing your low lights with others high lights .

Today you'll mostly find me eating brunch, walking along the Thames and finding a cosy place to sit and spend time with the ones I love.
In our industry it can be so hard to find a work/life balance, so taking time out when you can on off-season weekends is so important!

You'll find lots more tips on time management at #hivelive17 this April! Book now via the link in our profile

After a 5am start with work until lunch, then grocery store, dry cleaners, civic association duties, cupboard clear out, .... & now a storm is rolling through Houston....time for a bath & face mask! It's important to fuel your body with good food & keep yourself strong & healthy; it's also important to look after your skin & take time out every now & then 😊🛁 (Not smiling too much otherwise the mask will crack!) #relaxing #taketimeout #lookafteryourself #lookafteryourskin #fitover40 #personaltrainer #andreajaynefitness

Many of us chronic illness warriors feel strange when we leave the house. We leave the house so little to do "normal people" things that when we do it feels foreign and bizarre. For some reason we think that because our life is on hold that the rest of the world is too. But everyone is buzzing about the city in their cars; running errands, working, meeting friends, having play dates, lugging their kids around...etc. How surreal this picture is to take in when we actually feel good enough to leave our house. Everyone else in the world is just going on with "normal" life and it feels like they shouldn't. Not because I am selfish and want everything to stop and freeze in time just for me, but because this is my world. My world is frozen and my life is trapped in a different time and place. Like I'm trapped in a snow globe while life continues to move outside of it. This is how it feels when someone with a debilitating illness leaves their house for a moment of "normal", and it's a strange out of body feeling. It's hard to take this all in as I am sitting in the coffee shop window, observing what life is like outside my little snow globe. But it also is very life-giving to my heart to see the world working, and be reminded that it's these little things that I am fighting so hard to get back. Simple life experiences and everyday "normals" that most people take for granted. I will never take these things for granted again. Going to a tea shop with my mother-in-law and husband is a treasure to me now and this moment will sustain me for about a month until I can have another moment like this again. I will look back at this picture in the meantime, in the hard hard days that follow, as a reminder of when I got to leave my snow globe for a few hours. #lymelife #chronicillness #invisibleillness #invisibleillnessawareness #taketimeout #snowglobe #treasures #whatimfightingfor #kickinglyme #jennkickslyme

My hammock is strong enough to carry me and my worries in a world gone mad. I reflect today and stand firm in knowing this is exactly where we all need to be. Looking at our darkness straight in the face no longer able to hide. Let yourselves be heard, organize, and hold each other. We will make it through because we are in this crazy mess together.
It is here where I rest. Rest well today, warriors need their strength to continue fighting.

💕Divine Oatmeal with banana & coconut oil , almond milk & little coconut milk topped with pistachios, 3 nut butter & cacao nibs 🍃 When its cold outside..... you keep warm inside 😊 Things are going well back in my second home London Town...but I have made the ripe & wonderful decision to fly back to Zimbabwe very soon to take some time away back at home...it's been so long and it's much needed 🍃☀️I believe in nurturing the soul and just pressing stop to unwind, regenerate & connect with self far removed from the hectic toxic life that first world, big city living can storm up 🌪️ Whilst I do love London I need a break away & looking very much forward to some peace and quiet to do the things I love at my own pace and enjoy time with my mum, just to stop enjoy the simple things like reading a book cover to cover, walking barefoot in the grass, playing guitar, enjoying conversations about nothing particular, looking at the stars on a warm night or just listening to birds sing in the trees 🌳🍃💕I have begun preparations for my move & I am quite excited and entranced in longing for a little rest for my weary soul 🙌 Life is a long and winding road so do the things that make you happy... you don't wanna find you didn't when you look over your shoulder and time has run out ...🌻 #selflove #porridge #healthyliving #fitforlife #simplethings #healthyeating #wellness #happinessiskey #takecare #nourish #fitness #mindbodyspirit #fillyourcup #lifeisbeautiful #taketimeout #quietyourmind #connectwithyourself #detoxyourmind #onelifeliveitwell #peaceandlove #happinessiswithin #restoration #breathedeep #whoareyou #ineedme #homeiswheretheheartis

Had a choice this morning, when it was pouring rain. Stay at home and ride on the trainer or still go training in the hills as planned.
Glad I went with the original plan. It stopped raining once I arrived. Did the 3 climbs. Felt stronger than last time. And did it despite a persistent 35km/hr wind. 4 hours in the saddle done.
Where's my bed?
Oh wait, I have to go home and switch to mummy mode. Dinner bath and bed for the 2 and 4 year olds!
Who needs recovery anyway... right?

Sometimes we just need to be 'busy' and reconnect with ourselves in whatever way that may be #bekindtoyourself #taketimeout

#thursdaytreat 💜 always remember to take care of yourself. Something as simple as taking a bath like this will encourage the detox process & by consequence benefiting your skin and aging. Stress plays a MAJOR part in the body and affects skin, hair, nails as well as causing sickness. #mindyourbody #lookafteryourself #taketimeout #relax #unwind #destress #burgundybeauty
