It’s Thursday. How did that happen?! Is it just me or are the weeks flying by at the moment? We just had the end of daylight savings here in Australia (well, in the states that observe it anyway) which means this week I’m all over the place because my mind is still trying to adjust to the new time. Every time it starts or ends, I wind up thrown out of whack and unable to sleep properly for a few days… so this week I feel like I have jet lag. Without the jet. So is that just lag? Who knows… 🤔🤷🏻♂️🙂
Here’s my latest weekly round-up of a few things I loved/found interesting this week regarding mental health and general wellbeing, which should take you less than 2-3 minutes to read. Hope you find something interesting/useful/inspiring from it!
Have a fantastic week/weekend. JG 🙂
Here are three things I’ve been enjoying/exploring this week:
1. Book – The Urban Farmer (by Justin Calverley and Ceres)
I might live in the countryside but I have a regular-sized yard and I live in a town, so space is still at a premium. This Australian book, first published in 2017, somehow landed on my radar (in print) and I’m thoroughly enjoying learning about how to grow stuff in small spaces. Mind you, I’m a bit shit at gardening but thankfully my partner enjoys it so I see my role as being more of a director of what to grow and where 😁 Find it online wherever you get your books.
2. Simple reminder about mindfulness/awareness/acceptance by @tinybuddhaofficial [via Instagram]
I think daily quote accounts are fine if you treat them as a tool rather than holding all of the answers… regular listeners of the podcast will know I love a good quote however I usually encourage you to stop and reflect on it, and consider what it actually means to you. With that in mind, this is a quote that’s been doing the rounds lately however it’s a timely reminder that things rarely just happen instantaneously – slow and steady wins the race! Plus also sometimes everything needs to turn to goo before you can emerge as something new…
3. You can’t do everything by @thrive [via Instagram]
As I said last week, I’m a big fan of Thrive Global, spearheaded by Arianna Huffington and focused on promoting practical tools for wellbeing. I was going to try and post someone else but this one definitely spoke to me. If you can’t achieve everything in the designated time, something’s got to give… and if that means impacting on personal time well I’m afraid that’s just not going to happen! Know your priorities and make them the foundation of everything you say and do.
That’s it! I hope you have a fantastic day and an excellent weekend. If you haven’t already, check out the latest episode of the podcast and YouTube show, links below. New podcast episode coming on Sunday, all about redefining success.
Take care and talk soon!
