Your life won’t change until YOU change

Hey hey hey, it’s Gabs aka Buddhawithabackpack here giving you that Monday juice this week! 💜

In our PMU calendar, March is the month of growth and expansion. It’s about taking action on your goals and pushing outside of your comfort zone to really put your life on the best path to your desired destinations (plural because there should never be one destination, we can always continue to grow and expand or completely divert our goals!).

Are you sabotaging yourself?

Hey guys!!

Yasmin here! Happy Monday! or not a happy Monday? depending on your mood right now….but I am hoping we can lift that and get you to go again after this post.

I’ve been going through the most the last few weeks and I really wanted to just cancel life and lay in bed but unfortunately the way my life is set up…lol! But it got me thinking about how many times I have done that… just quit everything, missed opportunities ..all because I was in a funk over some crap I actually can’t remember right now. Which lead me to this… (more…)

The drive to self love

S-E-L-F-L-O-V-E

You can’t pour from an empty cup… So this month is about sharing ways to keep you topped up!

Last week, Yas’s Monday Motivation about Self Love was great because she listed some really handy steps to embed self love into our daily routines to keep the love coming in.

This week, I Gabs want to touch on four main anchors that keep me happy, fulfilled and afloat! 🙂 (more…)

Why self care may not be working for you

Hey guys!

Yasmin here! So I had a whole Monday Motivation set out and ready to share with you all and then I read a few messages I received and a lot of them were questions on ‘How I do what I do and find balance.’ So decided to get up and re-write a new blog for you all:) lol!

I would be lying if I said I had the balance thing on lock because I don’t and there are a few of my friends that will tell you I take forever to reply to messages. (sorry friends) If you are new to this blog then I am Yasmin, founder of Pick Me Up Inc, mum to 6 year old Cameron, part time beauty therapist and student training to be a PT but I wanted to share my secret that keeps me going.

We may know a lot but we do not know it all- STAY OPEN

MONDAY MOTIVATION

Fresh Start / Clarity / Open / Motivated / Let Go / Focus


Hey guys!

So this week I’m going to use a word from our themed calendar! If you have our calendar under the quote you will see some keywords for the month (used above) and we are going to be focusing on a word a week, this week it is OPEN. I’m excited for this because i’m hoping by using these words it will help shift and change the way we operate and think from day to day. So many times when going for goals we just focus on all the action it takes to get there but forgetting to look at our behaviour patterns and our emotional wellbeing whilst doing so.

Good rising and happy Monday!

It’s Gabs aka @buddhawithapackpack here and some of you may have read my posts on a Wednesday over on the Pick Me Up Inc Instagram and here’s my first Monday Motivation!

Monday is my favourite day of the week. Why? (more…)

New year..New you blues?

Hey guys!!

New year and new you and all that jazz…. OR if you woke up this morning after the new year hype and realised you are in fact the same you in the same body, with the same problems as 24hrs ago accompanied with a little bit of dread or anxiety then I can assure you, that you are not alone.

But as it is the 1st month on a Monday I have a special Monday motivation for you that I think you may find useful to get you realigned and ready for this month. And I will use the first month of the 2018 pick me up inc calendar along with its #pmimakeithappen. (more…)

How to do less but get more out of your day

Hey guys!

So it’s the beginning of the week and if you’re anything like me you set your intentions for the day and week ahead, list is full of wonderful things and you feel motivated and ready to go….BUT forward to Wednesday and you’ve not even done 25% of your list and the procrastination kicks in accompanied with that negative self talk and the feeling of disappointment…well that was me until I changed up the way I attacked my work load by doing just ONE thing! (more…)

Simplicity calls…disconnect to reconnect

Hey guys!!

So summer is here and we are a few weeks in to the summer holidays which for me means more time with my son and trying to balance work life, childcare and seeing friends and loved ones! I long for a more simple life and live for the days off where I can remain present, read books and enjoy great company in the sunshine ….

But life takes its toll and surely I can’t be the only one that feels like they are in a circus sometimes with their main trick being to juggle! Lol! Whether you have kids or not it can all get a bit on top. And having messages pouring in through various apps on our phones doesn’t make it any easier. I have felt really overwhelmed recently so decided to take action.

I gave up whatsapp a week ago as much as I love being connected sometimes it does feel like you have to instantly reply as that is how we’ve been conditioned to communicate and people do get shitty or take it personally if you don’t reply in a certain time frame. So I jumped off and won’t get it back until after the summer holidays so I can be a little more present with cam and exercise my boundaries with how ‘reachable’ I am.

I was also lucky enough to have received this amazing book from my friend Sarah for my earthday, ‘Go offline, be mindful’ which prompts you with activities to do that don’t involve being online. They also have a 30day challenge which I have decided to do through out August!

So I’m jumping out the rabbit hole that we call instagram and disconnecting to reconnect. As much as I love being on it, it can sometimes take up time and I want to be more present through out this summer holiday. I love the community we have built on insta so will still be sharing my thoughts and experiences on the blog (you can subscribe to get updates straight to your email! ) honestly thank you for being on this journey with me. To be able to hold space with you is something I appreciate everyday.

I share this just incase it inspires anyone to do something similar. Especially if you use socials for work, you can feel you have to show up and in some ways you do but don’t forget to take the time to look after you. You can’t pour from an empty cup after all.

I leave you with a little poem I wrote questioning ‘Does it ever get too much?’

I wish you an amazing summer whatever you get up to!

Love & light always.
