Recovery from burnout

It is a mere season, one of feeling wobbled from juggling far too many plates whilst within a quick sand of sloppy decisions. But here begs the question of how do we dig ourselves away from the daily slog that feels to have no end or freedom? Answer; by resourcing simple practices that evoke a sense of gratitude back to ourselves away from the daily noise. Reigniting a bounce to the step and owning a pure delight for springing from our duvet each and every morning away from mental pressure. With limitless advice and buy ins at our fingertips we have all the answers, yet the language within this space is that it’s the simple good stuff that allows you to get back on track. ‘The cause and effect of what you ‘do’ being an extremely important one to meditate upon’.

Shoehorning into Lycra

Via Dail prompt: A space to Sound out about the muses of a grumpy fitness sort. Georgina, is the founder of A fat lot of good. She lives with her three children. Each week, she writes about the sense—and nonsense—of life.  Hurrah I opened an Instagram feed to be reminded that there are perfect examples of ‘good’ lycra in the world. To women whom have connected with the right before and after. ~Quote~ ‘One year since I stood crying in my bedroom, unable to force myself to go to the gym one more singular time’ For me this is a big part of my life, my work, my business and my responsible voice as a trainer and teacher within the fitness boom. Social media for the fitness and wellbeing blogging culture has become nothing but wading through a series of before and after images and I can’t but blame my sector and some trainers for that. I am becoming utter wrangled with a visual feed crammed high with toxic before and afters of semi clad cleavage laced …

Mid Life Relationship

Georgina, is the founder of A fat lot of good. She lives with her three children. Each week, she writes about the sense—and nonsense—of life. Many experts approach relationship challenges from the “deficiency model.” In this model, they identify what isn’t working, and work to fix those problems. On this statement I feel perplexed at the entire pressure around relationships and that perhaps we should look to the eye of the storm before its causal breakdown. A relationship is one where both people feel and have respect for themselves and with this have a deep bond between each other. In doing this it radiates and a natural stronger bond will flow. For me this starts with honouring my own body, creating a solid foundation and relationship with myself, from inside to out. Trusting and understanding my worth, my boundaries, my self value; a heart centred self love. This approach is about creating a solid foundation ‘for’ the relationship in me. One where both people feel a personal strength allowing a deep bond between each other. In doing this, there is …

Let the pain run through you {4}

Georgina, is the founder of A fat lot of good. She lives with her three children. Each week, she writes about the sense—and nonsense—of life. Be inspired by every new moon. Beauty is in the ordinary, in today, in your freedom, in your passions, in your friendships and in your self love. Feel just a little bit happy that it is at your fingertips. Pour and put behind you, dizzy memories that make you cry, be done; they are freckles, winged friends. Feel motivated that you have your eyes on today, it is a high freedom of a dizzy state of potential and excitement, of health. No need for complicated, I have spent the past week with my reading musings. Relaxation, exploration and embracing of forgiveness. Mindfulness, simplification, putting my eyes only to what makes me fly and just that little bit happy. Healing memories of old, decluttering to dizzy freedom. Who says its hard, who says you are quite not enough, it is only as you see it and hear it, the unhappy noise and …

Because you are already there {2}

Georgina, is the founder of A fat lot of good. She lives with her three children. Each week, she writes about the sense—and nonsense—of life. The body palace I remember the first thought of I hate my body; quite frankly I was far too young. I had come to the conclusion that I wasn’t attached to it, that my skin was some kind of alien. Giving it zero respect, compassion or love with my words or actions. Terrible isn’t it that I can’t even give my own living breathing vessel respect. Being inspired by word; ‘When you learn how to create a boundary to something or someone that you find difficult or unaligned with, new possibilities of opening and connection emerge in you – possibilities which were previously being blocked. This is something I have learnt first-hand in my life and I love working with others on boundaries because I know the richness it brings.’ ~ Lee Harris What exactly is it here that I give my energy to when it comes to body confidence? …

The beauty of connectedness

Via Daily Prompts: Refresh & Clean Georgina, is the founder of A fat lot of good. She lives with her three children. Each week, she writes about the sense—and nonsense—of life. Dear you, It starts simply with you. Protect your sensitivity dear one, refrain from confiding your deepest and purest feelings to those that won’t cherish them dear. Your relationship with yourself sets the tone for every other relationship you have. Stop engaging in destructive dances, be healthy and assertive and find your emotional freedom. Help others excel within your being for it is those whom are grateful for all the loving and kindness you have in your life and to be grateful for. Have a relationship with vulnerability not one based upon contracts of kisses and possessions. Walk with grace, accept a defeat, build your plans on today alone, for there is gratitude in every day and breath. Thrive, water and grew. Don’t listen to the patter and path of future stories invented by the inner voice. Park sources of exhaustion, look for your own emotional freedoms and …
