Don't apologise for ....

Don't apologise for ....


We work with so many clients (past and present) who always feel they need to apologise and say sorry. Apologising for saying how they feel; apologising for not meeting other people's expectations; saying sorry for putting their own needs first sometimes; apologising for not having a good day; apologising for taking up space.

We don't need to say sorry for any of these things. Each and everyone of us is entitled to express our thoughts and feelings and say what we need and want. Each of us us entitled to assert ourselves and live our lives according to our own values, interests and expecations - not someone else's. Each one of us is entitled to and permitted to take up space and be present in this world. You don't need to say sorry for doing any of that. 

You matter. You are important. You CAN take up space, because it's your right to do so.

Take care, look after yourselves and have a lovely weekend.

Best wishes

Alexandra

This week's #MondayMotivation is #MondayMoodles.

This week's #MondayMotivation is #MondayMoodles.


Moodles are little creative exercises you can do to become aware of feelings, reduce stress or anxiety, help you relax or feel better and much more.

Some people have a wee bit more time on their hands at the moment (I wish I did!), so engaging in some creative activites for mental health can really improve wellbeing and stress at the moment.

I've provided 4 Moodles to try below. 

Give one or more of these a go and see how you get on... it might even help you feel a wee bit better.

Moodle #3

With everything that's going on with COVID-19 at the moment, it can be easy to slip into thinking about things we're not in control of at the moment, or the things that are not going right or perhaps focusing on feeling overwhe…
