Aggie the other half here at Plant Powered Mothers with her hubby 4 years ago and last night at the Australasian Nutrition in Healthcare Conference! What a  difference! I think time has not just stopped for these two but they hit the rewind button all the way back to their 20s!
Hit that ♥ if you agree!

We are so frightened of gaining weight. We are so frightened of gaining weight, that we’d rather stay attached to diet culture than release ourselves from its pervasive grip. Even though we know from experience that diets don’t work long term, we would rather keep counting calories, keep restricting ourselves and punishing ourselves for being weak, than come to understand and love who we really are without it.

It’s crazy. Why are we so frightened? What will happen if we gain weight? Do you think people will stop loving you? Do you think people will no longer accept you? And if you do think those things, would all of that be true in reverse, if someone you loved gained weight? Unlikely. 
Our self worth shouldn’t come from the size of our bodies. 💕#womenempoweringwomen #eatingdisorderrecovery #edfam #bulimiarecovery #truth #haes #fear #selfworth #selfacceptance #bodyacceptance #bodyneutrality #worthbeyondweight #morethanabody #allbodiesaregoodbodies #effyourbodystandards #dietculture #dietfree #riotsnotdiets #mothersanddaughters #challengeyourthinking #youaregoodenough #youareworthy

Valentine's Day is for everyone, not just for couples. Anyone who's watched 'The Lobster' will know that society has a nasty way of excluding people who don't fit into the majority; however, we don't need to accept that. 
If you're facing Valentine's Day as a single sort, then here are a few things to guard against today to ensure you feel the luuurve, too: 
1. Avoid comparing and despairing: focusing on what everyone else is doing on Valentine's will simply take the focus away from your own UNIQUE world. Guard against this by writing down five things you love about your life, and which you feel is unique to YOU. 
2. Don't bring yourself down: it's easy to be hard on yourself on days that society puts forth a collective ideal. Be it Christmas, birthdays, Valentine's or NYE, your critical self is given plenty of commercial ammunition to beat itself with. Beat your inner bully by reminding yourself that you wouldn't speak to a friend the way you speak to yourself, and follow this up by being kinder to yourself. 
3. Never trust a 'should' or a 'must'! These two are a couple of rogues: they are usually some old relic from someone else's philosophy. ALWAYS interrogate them: who says you should be in a partnership? Who says you must be dating? Hell, you'll probably realise you're happy as you are. #Valentinesday #counselling #fleet #hampshire #fleetcounsellors #advice #mentalhealth #wellbeing #selftalk #mentalfilter #comparing #help #support #bebetter #mindset #positivity #revolution #change #nevertrustathought #challengeyourthinking #fuckthemainstream #selflove #loveyourself #beyourself #betruetoyourself

Experience is the almighty teacher of lessons. And with enough “at bats” anything is possible. Don’t be afraid to try, something, be afraid you won’t have the opportunity to try again. Take a gamble on yourself. Do the impossible.

Happy day of lovers ♥️
Perhaps you find yourself swept up, or bogged down...celebrated days like this can create an opening for what lies unconscious to us 🌹
Remember that feeling comes before perception...a feeling gets triggered in us and we instinctively look to our outside world to attach it to in order to create meaning and remain safe; we can cast away what is outside of us....so don’t believe your own perceptions of what sometime it is not.  They are creating an open door into what you have to pull apart in this body and in this lifetime....that’s the mirror in action and dynamics that pull us ever deeper...
Don’t forget we’ve got Relationship Rescue up in the SHOP, a 4 part video series dedicated to consciously questioning your relationship triggers ✌🏼

So what did I did? I taught this lady to start thinking in an entirely new way about how she moves; so she can use her body with far less energy-sapping effort, tension and strain; apply this ‘thinking technology’ to everything she does every day; and make her own life better and better...

A belief is just a though that you have continued to think over and over. It’s so easy to condition ourselves and develop beliefs that maybe, when examined, we find are false or no longer serve us. I love to challenge my beliefs, look at when and where they may have formed, and ask myself if it’s time to start thinking something new. I would love to hear your tips and tricks for reversing negative or old mindsets. Drop me a message below. 👇😃

A roadmap for sitting in discomfort 👌🏻 As we hashed out on the podcast “Two parents, two perspectives - what to do when your parenting styles clash”:
.
[14:53] Julie: The dynamic does not need to be here if you don’t need it, right? Which is super painful. But whatever it's triggering is exactly where you're trying to or your higher self is trying to bring your conscious awareness to. It's your next growth area. It's painful. But you can do it. And you can do it by still bringing it back to self. What is the story that you have attached to this person to the traits they're displaying, what is the story you have from your childhood on that, what is the wounding that is yet still seeking more evolutions of healing, how can you disentangle your inner child from what you're witnessing to be able to love harder and more consciously, you know? .
[20:26] Bridget: And very often parents with very differing parenting styles actually both want the same outcome but see a very different way of getting there. And that's when its the conversation, that's when its ‘how can I open more to what's triggering me here with my partner so that we can see more of each others perspective, so that we can enter into this with less emotional charge and more resolution to a shared outcome?’. As opposed to two people trying to get to the same thing but just ‘trigger, trigger, trigger, trigger, trigger’ just bouncing off each other, you know? 🌱🤪

Why do we feel so self indulgent when practising self care?  It’s such an important part of maintaining a healthy balance in life, yet often we see our role as looking after others and leave no time for ourselves. It’s important to challenge the thoughts in our heads that tell us we are selfish or uncaring if we prioritise time for ourselves. We are important too. #selfcare #selflove #weneedresttoo #challengeyourthinking #wombarraconsulting (ignoring the spelling error in this quote because it’s a great quote!)

YES!! 👏🙌👏🙌 .
When theory becomes practice
😊
.
Posted @withrepost • @themindgym
A wonderful client sent me this photo of their notice board - any time they get anxious or start to worry about something, they take out the 50 quid, & ask themselves that question. 9/10 it's "no" & they get on with their day.
😊
For the occasional accurate worry, they problem solve, & take constructive action. 👊
& get on with their day. 😊
Don't be a hostage to your thoughts.
Get out of the endless loop of worry.
Question, then act.

The essence of mindfulness practice is to observe your thoughts without reacting to or judging them. If you find yourself caught in a thought pattern that repeats itself, it often helps to challenge this repetitive thought pattern or “core belief” by running it through these 4 questions. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thoughtsarenotfacts #thoughtsareassumptions #dontbelieveeverythingyouthink #challengeyourthinking #trainyourmind #beyourowntherapist #mindovermatter #itsallanillusion #bekindtoyourmind #challengeyourinnercritic #iamnotmythoughts #mindfulmoments #athoughtisharmlessunlessyoubelieveit #changeyourthoughts #changeyourthoughtschangeyourlife #thoughtsarenotreal #observedontbelieve #mindfulness #justthoughts #notfacts #mindmatters #inquiry #whatdoyoubelieve #questionyourthoughts #selfinquiry #questionstressfulthoughts #corebeliefs #happinessdoctor #mindcoach #mindsetcoach #happinessdoctor

Many people seek answers to their problems, but sometimes are to quick to dismiss solutions because they have little or no information about said solutions.

Don't be afraid to challenge the information you do have, do the research, form your own conclusions.

Check out my latest blog post #linkinbio  and challenge what you think you know.

Sometimes all we need is a shift in perspective! Psychologists call this “cognitive reframing”, and it is a proven method of shifting you out of a stressful state. Remember, your fight-flight response is kicked off not just by a stressful situation, by by perceived stress. This means you can fire off all those stress hormones just by thinking about a stressful event, such as a near miss in traffic, a fight with your spouse, or a looming deadline.
⠀
When this happens, we actually have a choice about how we respond emotionally. Either we go along with the program, get riled up or upset, and allow that stress response to overtake you.
⠀
Or we can shift our perspective.
⠀
It might not be easy to start with, but you CAN be in charge of your thoughts. And as your thoughts create your emotions, you can therefore decide how you are going to respond emotionally to a situation or a memory.
⠀
There are 3 steps to this process: ⠀
1. Notice your thoughts. Eg “that deadlines tomorrow, I’ll never make it in time, there’s so much else I need to do, my computer is playing up on me...”
2. Challenge your thoughts. Haven’t I always made my deadlines? Haven’t I always managed my computer? I’m smart enough to get it done, I’m creative...
3. Reframe your thinking. See if you can spin the situation. Maybe try and see it as a game or a challenge, not a threat. It can be a subtle shift, but this will alter your bodies biochemical state, helping you shift back to calm, clarity and focus. Meaning you’ll meet that deadline with much more ease!
⠀
Shifting perspective can take practice. The sooner you start, the sooner you’ll be a pro 💪🏻 comment below if you want a hand, or share a time when you’ve changed your perspective!

Do you ever wake up with such enthusiasm saying, “Okay!! This is it! Today is the day I’m going to change!” ⠀
⠀
Just because you have the enthusiasm on day ONE of the day you decided to start eating right or exercising regularly doesn’t MEAN that the enthusiasm will continue until tomorrow, or next week... its just the truth!!⠀
⠀
👉🏻 Just because you decide you are going to start implementing a new lifestyle doesn’t mean you are ENTITLED to it! ⠀
⠀
You gotta work for it, sister!! ⠀
⠀
~ You have to be bound and determined that the SECOND your alarm clock goes off that you are dedicated to not pushing snooze. ⠀
⠀
~ You are willing to give up the Diet Coke for a sparkling water. ⠀
⠀
~ You are strong enough to turn the other cheek when everyone around you is eating all the sweets at a work function. ⠀
⠀
You guys, it’s not about day one. It’s about setting up a lifestyle that will set you up for how you are going to live the rest of your life! ⠀
⠀
Be determined, be strong in the life you are creating for yourself even though everyone may try to negate what you are doing. ⠀
⠀
Know your why!!! Keep your WHY at the forefront of everything you are doing. ⠀
⠀
🔥🔥 Challenge what you think your limits are, work hard, rise up when the going gets tough, and let’s get to work. ⠀
⠀
You can apply through the LINK in my BIO for my Busy Women accountability group! We start prep on February 11th!⠀
⠀
Can I save you a spot?⠀

It took me until my 40s to figure out how TOXIC the word SHOULD is. Before that I bought into the shoulds. Of course people SHOULD be kind to each other. Obviously parents SHOULD unconditionally love their children.
.
💕
.
But when I see it used on a smaller scale, with more specific beliefs or beliefs I don’t hold, the toxicity becomes clear. Who says a child SHOULD keep their bedroom neat? Why SHOULD people value work over leisure?
.
🤔
.
Every action we take is based on a choice, and we make our choice based on our goals, our history, our experience, and our beliefs. Nobody SHOULD do anything! Even when it’s clear which choice will get us the results we want, there may be a good reason for why we don’t make that choice at this time.
.
🥺
.
So please, watch your SHOULDS! Challenge them! Curiously trace where they came from and why you feel you need them! You’ll be amazed how free you feel when you’re not ‘shoulding’ all over others – and yourself!
.
🥰
.

🌱Life is good when you do the 5:30am yoga.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Getting my 8 1/2 month pregnant self out of bed to yoga before work wasn’t a glorious skip to the mat. Honestly, I almost didn’t do it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But I gave my word to a virtual workout group that I’d be there and so...accountability (thanks for it, @campbell_souppp!). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Accountability isn’t a loner’s game. We can all be in this together. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You got the whole day ahead of you. Now go get it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

CBT EXPLAINED

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a short-term, goal-oriented psychological treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving. CBT is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations & actions are interconnected, & that negative thoughts & feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle. 
An important part of CBT is identifying & challenging cognitive distortions, contradictions or faulty thinking. These include:

Filtering - ignoring the positive/good things in our day to focus solely on the negative. “Black and White” Thinking -  all-or-nothing thinking, with no room for complexity or nuance.

Overgeneralisation - taking a single incident or point in time & using it as the sole piece of evidence for a broad general conclusion. 
Catastrophising / Magnifying or Minimising - This distortion involves expectations that the worst will happen or has happened, based on a slight incident that is nowhere near the tragedy that it is made out to be.  Alternatively, we may minimise the importance of positive things, such as an accomplishment at work or a desirable personal characteristic.

Personalising - the belief that everything you do has an impact on external events or other people, no matter how irrational the link.

PAUSE & REFLECT

Pausing to reflect on your thoughts, emotions and reactions often has benefits.  It allows you to gain perspective, balance your thoughts, reduce reactivity, alter behaviours and find a better response.  Pausing lets you engage with empathy, respond calmly and ensure that you deal with situations in a helpful way.  Something to pause and calming think about.

REALISTIC OPTIMISM

Realistic optimism is a key ingredient of resilience. The research on optimism is clear: optimistic people are happier, healthier, and more productive.  Compared to pessimists, optimists have better relationships, succeed more, are better problem solvers and are less likely to suffer from depression. This is because individuals who are more realistically focused on the positive elements of adversity are able to better manage the negative aspects of situations.

REALISTIC OPTIMISM Realistic optimism is a key ingredient of resilience. The research on optimism is clear: optimistic people are happier, healthier, and more productive. Compared to pessimists, optimists have better relationships, succeed more, are better problem solvers and are less likely to suffer from depression. This is because individuals who are more realistically focused on the positive elements of adversity are able to better manage the negative aspects of situations. Realistic optimists reflect upon difficult situations carefully, try to find silver linings and trust that viable solutions will be discovered. They think about their thinking and are aware that they will recover, given time and support. They proactively look below the surface of an experience to better understand their reactions.

WATCH YOUR LANGUAGE!

I remember driving in NZ on a motor home adventure and discovering the Cardrona bra fence.  I found this quirky tourist attraction quite hilarious & I liked how there was a donation box for breast cancer research.  But I did think afterwards how it must be a bit contraversial (possibly offensive) to some people, especially if it challenged their morality or belief system.  I even hesitated to post the photo in case it bothered others.

Splitting (also called black-and-white thinking or all-or-nothing thinking) is the failure in a person's thinking to bring together the dichotomy of both positive and negative qualities of the self and others into a cohesive, realistic whole.  The individual tends to think in extremes and absolutes, which can be unhelpful & irrational.

If you notice that your self talk and words have a tendency towards being rigid, it is worth examining if there is room for a more balanced perspective. Psychological counselling can sometimes assist in teaching skills to assist in balancing your mood, thinking and wellbeing.

FOCUSING EMOTIONS

Kerosine Creek is a natural thermal pool and hot waterfall near Rotorua in NZ. My first swim was magical with the water at a perfect temperature. I loved swimming under a warm waterfall surrounded by nature's beauty. The second swim was highly unpleasant - the water was scalding hot & I leapt out with a yelp.  Different emotional experiences in the same pool, both temporary and appropriate. 
This natural thermal pool reminded me of the idea that it is normal to experience all emotional states regularly: joy, anger,  irritation, happiness, sadness, euphoria, surprise, anxiety, gratitude, fear etc.  It is normal and healthy to have all of these states in your emotions pool,  provided that they are kept in perspective and appropriate.

At times, we feel the strength of the "negative" mood states and our attention and thoughts enhance our emotional reactions.

An alternative is to steer our attention and focus to appreciating the "positives" in our life, creating situations that are pleasant, doing activities that you enjoy. Rather than battling the negatives, accept these feelings but focus with intention on uplifting feelings and experiences.

PANIC SURFING

Panic attacks are sudden periods of intense fear that may include palpitations, sweating, shaking, shortness of breath, numbness, or a feeling that something really bad is going to happen.  1 in 100 Australians have suffered from panic attacks in the last 12 months - it is a common problem. 
Panic attacks trigger a surge of adrenaline hormone in our bodies.  Not only is it released during a panic attack, but it is also released when we're stressed, when we're involved in doing something physical, when we're excited or angry. It's important to know and to remember that panic attacks are not dangerous, they just feel that way and so can be extremely frightening. A few coping tips:

Try not to fight what you are feeling
Relax using breathing techniques
Use distraction to surf through the feelings
Challenge your fear
Give yourself time to cope
Be patient with yourself
Face avoidance urges
Don't self medicate with drugs or alcohol
Seek help - "surfing" panic involves making a plan to manage the  unpleasant cycle of catastrophic thoughts, flight/fight response and distressing physical feelings. Psychologists use cognitive behavioural therapy, relaxation techniques and exposure therapy to address this cycle.

FURTHER READING: A great resource to assist you in managing these strong feelings is "Panic Surfing" by A Baillie and R Rapee.

SYMPTOM: IRRITABILITY 🌵

Irritability is a feeling of agitation, being frustrated or upset easily. You may experience it in response to stressful situations, or it may be a symptom of a mental or physical health condition.  Some common causes of irritability are:

Sleep deprivation:  if you are not getting adequate sleep, you are likely to feel irritable the next day.  It is worth introducing a consistent sleeping schedule, allowing for at least 6 hours of sleep per night. If you have a medical condition like sleep apnea, consult with your GP about treatment options.

Attention Disorders:  ADD, ADHD and other attention disorder can cause a person to be irritable and frustrated. With these conditions, it can be difficult to focus and complete tasks. This can create problems at work, at school, and at home.

Anxiety And Depression:  mental health issues effect thoughts, behaviour and mood. 
Unprocessed Emotions:  Your irritability may evolve from unprocessed emotions – feelings that you’ve bottled up or havent had time to deal with.

Regardless of the cause of your spikey mood, it is important to self contain rather than be aggressive, rude or edgy with others.  If you feel irritable on a regular basis, and you don’t know why, make an appointment with your doctor. They can help you identify possible causes. They can also discuss treatment options and strategies to manage your mood.

SELF TALK --- "Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt." William Shakespeare 📚

I love this quote from William Shakespeare - a reminder to challenge doubts and unhelpful thinking, rather than let them be victorious. 
I often observe a link between low self esteem "not good enough" self talk and psychological distress. At times, the words people say to themselves are harsh, belittling and even bullying.  Being aware that self talk needs to be fair and healthy is important for wellbeing.  So challenge the harsh irrational or imbalanced self talk, rather than buying into it.  Own your thoughts and build a more balanced and optimist perspective about yourself.

If you feel that you have problematic self talk, especially if depressed or anxious, I recommend working on this issue.

BODY IMAGE ISSUES

I came across this underwear ad from 1965 focusing on offering a solution to all the unfortunate women with a pear-shaped body - apparently their body is “no shape for a girl.” With unhealthy media depictions of girls and women, it is no wonder that some women from a young age struggle with body image issues.

Body Dysmorphic disorder is characterised by an preoccupation with one or more perceived defects or flaws in appearance that are not observable or appear slight to others (DSM V). It is considered to be a form of obsessive compulsive disorder.  BDD can be differentiated from the distorted body image which is a defining feature of eating disorders, in that distorted body image involves a preoccupation with overall body mass, whereas BDD involves focusing on a specific part or feature.  The typical age of onset of BDD is ages 12-13, with an average onset of 16-17.

Some symptoms include:

Excessive self-consciousness
Experience persistent and intrusive thoughts about the imagined flaw 
Feeling defined by their flaw. 
Are fearful of being seen as flawed
Frequent checking of appearance 
Attempting to camouflage or alter the perceived defect
Avoidance of public or social situations or triggers that increase distress. They may at times be housebound 
Needless cosmetic and dermatological treatments.
Depression
Isolation

BDD is chronic, but responds favorably to treatment with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy found to be an effective and evidence based method of treatment.  CBT challenges irrational beliefs & perceptions regarding the body feature.

PANIC

I remember thinking how scary it must have been to be a slave or gladiator waiting underground in the Colosseum for their battle. I imagine many of these poor people would have panicked. 
The APS advises that panic attacks are the main symptom of panic disorder. A panic attack is a sudden surge of intense fear or discomfort which reaches a peak within several minutes and is accompanied by at least four of the following:

Heart palpitations, or racing/pounding heart
Shaking or trembling
Shortness Of breath or a feeling of choking
Chest pain or discomfortnausea or abdominal upset
or heat sensations/sweatsdizziness, light-headedness, or feeling faint or unsteady
Numbness or tingling sensations
Derealisation (feelings of unreality) or depersonalisation (feelings of being detached from oneself)
Fear of losing control or of ‘going crazy’
Fear of dying.

2 types of panic attack have been identified: expected and unexpected. Expected panic attacks occur following a particular cue or trigger, for example, for some people being in a large crowd or in a lift might frequently trigger a panic attack. Unexpected panic attacks do not have an identifiable cue or trigger and can occur at any time, even if the person is in a calm state or asleep.

For a diagnosis of panic disorder, a person must experience at least one unexpected panic attack followed by 1 month or more of:  ongoing concern or worry regarding the experience of further panic attacks or their consequences; and/orchanges in behaviour in order to prevent further attacks from happening, for example, the person may avoid situations where they fear a panic attack could occur, such as public transport.

FEAR OF THE UNKNOWN -- "You know the greatest danger facing us is ourselves, and the irrational fear of the unknown. There is no such thing as the unknown. Only things temporarily hidden, temporarily not understood." James T. Kirk, Star Trek
