Addressing the irresponsible swell of wellbeing as a profit centre

Via Daily prompt –  Heard 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 challenge of mental health and wellbeing is a significant longstanding debate and with it a marketeers profit dream, a topic and sector to be founded with deep ethic and values. With Teresa May announcing in January that the UK Government would do more to help schools and employees ‘deal’ with the hidden injustice of mental illness and need to do more to support ‘mental wellbeing’, it thus leaves the door open to deep abuse in a climate of profit over a moral compass. If you are looking to transform your health and workforce this year who better to take inspiration from than a ‘people powered tank’; The new economics foundation (NEF). Rooted in real lives, workplaces and communities and commissioned by the UKs government foresight project in 2008, reporting the most insightful and important drivers of mental capital and wellbeing. With the concept of …

The beauty within anxiety

Via Daily Post : Solitude 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 women, Our highest power is love, and it is one thing each of us has unlimited volumes of at any season. Love is appreciating, complimenting, feeling gratitude and speaking good words to others. The more we give, the more we receive: mind, body and soul. For those dear ones who struggle with anxiety attack remember … I promise myself “ To be strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind. To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person I meet. To make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them. To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true. To think only the best, to work only for the best, and to expect nothing but the best. To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own. To forget …

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? …

Trust your eyes to give you the real picture

Irritation, why? The fact is we don’t trust our eyes enough to give us the real picture with what we sit within. The postcard that gives a proper picture of reality. Dogged by feelings of guilt for the need we have to make friends with our life, integrity, humility and honesty to situation. Unite not divide, a little tiny move or adjustment may encourage a reaction that brings a smiley face. It may take a little working out, discovery of a problem followed by control of self outrage. Yet you can not cut and paste the responsibility and ownership for your own personal life choices and suffering. The demise of our dear health is brought about by not chasing a calmed down one. Dire blackout phases of unplugging a connection with our inner intuition and voice, a phobia to finding courage to strike out for oneselfs’ health and wellbeing. Quite often we witness those who have a health demise initiated from a demand and importance to always be right and the winner. Yet it is …

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 …

Naked Vulnerability

Dear Body, Crossing a stormy sea to a sure new location. Naked in the truth of revealing all and at the utter mercy of self. A turning point, one of growth, identification and trepidation. Dipping the feminine toe into a fountain of water for the chance of a celestial diamond the other side. An adventure in the wind that gives way to waters that flow. Magical to the risk; naked to the truth. The beginning of the new world; shivers to the depths of core. I know and feel the slow feminine divine melt into an adventure that allows me to feel alive. It is an art that is given; to carry the courage from out of the shadows in quest to seek a beautiful inner glow. It is you dear body, that takes me there. That allows me there, that graces me there. I thank you again for the gift of your courage, we live together in this ever glow. It is a marriage you and I, a guest house of emotions yet forever present in …
