A Whole New Perspective on Tomorrow - Curves Welcome

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

We all have problems in life, some much bigger than others. That is life. No rhyme or reason to it. It’s part of the fabric of being a human being. We’re all going to experience frustration, disappointment, tragedy, death and sickness. And, we’ve heard it before, none of us are getting out of this alive. But it sure would be nice that while we are here, that we have some peace. We deserve it. And it’s ours to claim.

So where do you begin? Join me to explore answers to that question.

6 Easy Ways to Get Rid of Clutter - Curves Welcome

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

Clutter is like the sneaky cold virus that comes in on a whisper. At first, you don’t notice its entrance. It hides in the quiet recesses of the unnoticed, slowly building on itself until it gets nice and comfy. Then it begins to multiply, stretching beyond natural, taking over territories not able to coexist peacefully in its presence. Before long, it clouds the once pure space that offered tranquility and rest. It thrives in the new chaos it forms, casting upon us an obnoxious force that inevitably overruns the very environment we need to sustain our focus, health, and overall quality of life.

Learn 6 easy ways to get rid of this clutter monster!

How to Overcome Self-Doubt - Curves Welcome

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

Let’s get real about self-doubt for  a minute. Quite frankly, it spreads. What starts out as a slight hesitation, grows into an all-out war with your mind. It’ll play tricks on you. It’s a clever emotion like that. It’s one of those emotions that thrives on your avoidance. The only way to deal with fear is to face it. To view it as your teacher instead of adversary. And the most effective way to do this is to embrace it by acknowledging it and learning from it through a determined desire to grow.

Tune in to learn:

  • How to use self-doubt as your teacher
  • How to seize opportunities instead of fear them
  • How to get in the game and win instead of hanging on the sidelines and missing out

Quote from Sophie’s World by Jostein Garrder: -

 

“A sculptor is working on a large block of granite… one day a little boy comes by and says, ‘What are you looking for?’ ‘Wait and see,’ answers the sculptor. After a few days the little boy comes back, and now the sculptor has carved a beautiful horse out of the granite. The boy stares at it in amazement, then he turns to the sculptor and says, ‘How did you know it was in there?’”

The Importance of Self-Love & Self-Care - Seize the Day with Natalie Miller-Snell

The Importance of Self-Love & Self-Care - Seize the Day with Natalie Miller-Snell

May 2, 2019

The Importance of Self-Love & Self-Care

Seize the Day Podcast

 

 

Welcome to Seize the Day Podcast with Natalie Miller-Snell.

 

In todays show I explore the importance of Self-Love and Self-Care.

 

I talk through some great tips including: -

  • Good sleep
  • Food / diet
  • Taking breaks
  • Exercise
  • Activities which help you feel your best
  • Learning to say no
  • Putting yourself first

 

Seize the Day was inspired by my favourite latin expression, Carpe Diem. I’ve had some great mentors throughout my life who have offered me invaluable guidance. I'm hoping to do the same through these podcasts.  We have so many wonders at our fingertips; sometimes we just need a little help, or someone to point us in the right direction. 

 

I hope you enjoy the show!

 

 

Quote from the Show by Kristin Neff, a pioneer of self-compassion: -

 

“Self-compassion involves treating yourself with the same kindness, concern, and support you’d show to a good friend. When faced with difficult life struggles, or confronting personal mistakes, failures, and inadequacies, self-compassion responds with kindness rather than harsh self-judgment, recognizing that imperfection is part of the shared human experience.”

(Neff & Dahm, 2015)
