Having a bad day? Here’s why
May 12, 2020

Not too long ago I would wake up in a bad mood and the day would progressively get worse. You know those days where everything turns to rubbish … let’s be totally honest here – they turn to shit.

WARNING! Swearing is dotted throughout. It felt right, so I’m sorry if you are offended. If you are, maybe my rawness is not for you.

Those days would be a regular occurrence for me. I was having one of those days not so long go. And here is how it unfolded.

Now before I get to it, the reason why I’m sharing this is when you master this skill, your life changes rapidly and those days seem to last for minutes and come a lot less often.

Okay. So, I woke up feeling annoyed and angry, switching from one to the other – for absolutely no reason. The emotions were strong and I thought, “am I going to be productive like this?”

Absolutely not! I was not in the mood to lift a finger, other than a finger to say you know what.

So here I am with a full days’ of work ahead and absolutely no intentions doing any of it … other than the two-fingered salute.

I said “right. I’m going to sit with this. Fighting and ignoring this doesn’t work. I did that for years.”

I want you to give yourself permission to accept that everyone has bad days. The feeling amazing and bouncing out of bed (the personal development books pipe dream) saying my life is amazing, “I’m so grateful”, is unrealistic to achieve every day. And if anyone says they have those days every day are either:

1. lying, or

2. not being truthful with themselves and certainly not growing. Think of growing pains.

So after two minutes (no word of a lie), this is how quick it gets when you do it enough times – the major hurdle for most is remembering and catching yourself.

Okay, so back to it. I realised I’m feeling disrespected hence the anger and annoyance. I won’t bore you with the detail but here are the nuts and bolts

I found a part of me was disrespectful of my needs, and therefore when I felt disrespected, it hurt.

Now you maybe are thinking “well, of course, you feel hurt that’s a normal reaction.” I’m going to flip this concept on its head. It’s not and here is what I’ve learnt in years of practice.

When we experience a strong reaction or emotion such as anger, as I did, it’s your body’s way of saying “I’ve had enough of holding on to this now. Can you do something about it?”

What do we do? Hide, suppress, ignore, that’s why it doesn’t go away and many people end up living in these feelings and heavy emotions for most of their lives and don’t even know.

The trick here is to sit with it and know it will pass. But you have to listen as your body is talking to you and ignoring it creates chaos – both internally and externally.

Ask the following:

*Why am I feeling this way?

*What is my body showing me I’m holding on to?

*What do I need to know about this?

We create stress on our bodies when we do have these conversations. The stress, in turn, has an impact on how our body functions. In other words, it makes life difficult for your body to do its job keeping you healthy and alive. Your mind to concentrate so you can create what you actually want.

My question to you is how long are you willing to be on the emotional spin cycle?

I stand for truth, realness and openness with a hint of raw so you can be too as it’s the only way we can heal.

Wellness Coaching
$20 USD
50 & Beyond Health & Wellbeing Discovery Session

Join me for a comprehensive look into what it will take to stay physically and mentally strong as you move through the second half of your life.

We all want to age without the fear of suffering from a chronic illness and still have the energy and strength to live the life we want.

The number one reason people fail to stay healthy as they age is the inability to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for health transformation.

Through working with 1000's of clients over the last 20 years, I have been able to develop a coaching program that not only looks at nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management but also how to develop the right mindset needed to succeed.

Having a plan is not as important as having the ability to implement it.

If you are someone who struggles to follow healthy habits consistently. Or you are someone who wants to learn more about what they need to do personally to avoid chronic illness. Then my 30-minute Discovery Session is ideal for you.

From the 30 minutes we spend together, we will go through in specific detail what it is you can do today when it comes to what to eat, how to get the most from exercise, how to develop a powerful sleep routine and how to build a healthy environment needed to live a healthy life.

And with over 20 years of coaching experience in the health & wellness industry, I have witnessed firsthand what it takes to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for lasting change.

Expect to hear things that will challenge what you have always been told about nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management. As someone who is over 50 and is stronger, fitter and healthier than I was in my 20s, 30s, & 40s, I am well-placed to know what works and doesn't as we move through this period of our lives.

Check Your Vibes! Find out how much Positive and Negative energy you have!

The Energy Leadership™ Index (ELI) assessment is the proprietary, research-backed assessment tool, created by iPEC, that takes something abstract, like the way a person views the world, and turns it into something tangible—a metric that you can see and feel and even reevaluate in the future.

You’ve probably taken personality tests, like Myers Briggs, DiSC, and Enneagram, but this is different. And transformational.

The ELI is an attitudinal assessment tool that captures how an individual currently perceives and approaches work and life. This means that you learn to make change happen in real-time when you encounter a moment of self-doubt, fear, or frustration.

With the awareness and insights gained through the Energy Leadership Index debrief, you have the opportunity to reshape your attitudes and worldview and transform your life into the one you envision.

Our worldview is the result of a combination of many different aspects: our past experiences, level of consciousness, perception of situations. Each of us has a unique combination of all seven levels of energy which, in turn, creates your typical viewpoints, perceptions, and beliefs about life.

Learning about your energetic makeup can help you to reframe your perspective, shift your consciousness, and increase your energy level as a result. Discover your unique energetic makeup by taking an ELI Assessment!

This comes with an hour debrief - As an FYI the price is what it is because there is a price to me- I have to pay the institution for the assessment and the scoring. Then I'll walk you thorugh your results.

Oxygen to the rescue! Great for Mental Health, Brain Injury, Detox, inflammation

Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers are one of the oldest and safest treatments available. Oxygen detoxifies and heals. I was introduced to Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers (HBOC) by Dr. Amen, a world reknown Psychiatrist. Oxygen is great for ADD, Mood Disorders, Trauma, Insomnia, Brain injuries, Wound healing and Inflammation.

This is from Dr. Amen's Clinic: "If you are struggling with a mental health condition, recovering from a concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI), or dealing with cognitive or memory problems, hyperbaric oxygen therapy may be for you. People all over the world have reported recovering from a variety of conditions and experiencing dramatic improvements with this type of popular therapy."

Most people will feel a difference off of one treatment, especially if you typically have trouble sleeping. You will sleep like a rock.
