New Intention, New Space For A Beautiful Start

Like Comment

January is the month where everything is starting over. Going back to work, new start, new journey, a new chapter of your life. What is new and really live is to set intentions for 2018 and not new or outdated resolutions.January is the perfect time to still reflect, slow down to get organised and choose consciously what are your desires/ what do you truly want to achieve this year. We can all feel that we are still in this transition time between starting 2018 and diving into it with renewed hope, light and confidence.

Let's set intentions not triggered by our ego but by our soul, soul based intentions. Yes, intentions to make us feel good inside. Intentions not created to respond to the validation of others.Real, beautiful and doable intentions which light you up and give you this instant boost to do everything in your power to achieve it. From this place of creation, set an intention in your professional, personal, physical, financial, spiritual and finally in your home life. By Home life, I am referring to what you would like to change in your home, in your environment to make you happy.

Imagine where you would like to be, to do for Valentine's Day, in Spring, in Summer, Autumn and Winter. Let your imagination, your creativity lead you where you dream to be, allow yourself to daydream to uncover your hidden desires.

Once you know what you want, look around you and ask yourself : Is your environment is empowering you to reach your desires? Do you feel supported by your home environment ? Because it is the perfect time, to create space, to give them this opportunity to materialise in your life. By decluttering your home step by step, you will create more space for your new intentions. You will see what you couldn't see before.

You can start by throwing or even better giving items that you do not use or items which do not bring you joy anymore. It is really easy to keep things in our home because we used to see them in our living room or bedroom at the same place for years, it's really easy.

What is simple and manageable is to look around you and look at your environment by being an observer to change your perception and truly see what no longer serves you. It is placing yourself in a state of observation as well as curiosity to truly change your home environment. I did it yesterday and I felt so refreshed, peaceful and motivated by the way I created space in my home that I decided to do it more often.

So, enjoy January to rest, reflect. Set new intentions and bring small changes to your home step by step. You will start the year happy, motivated and with added zest in your life.

Motivational Speaker, Mindset Mentor and Wellness Expert, A Rockstar Mindset

Let’s start with three qualities which define me, shall we? I am an optimist, I’m innovative and I’m energetic. If you’re looking for something unconventional blended with optimism and energy, welcome to the Rockstar Mindset QG. I am a Motivational Speaker, a Mindset Mentor and a Wellbeing Expert. I’m also a UK Ambassador for Psychologies magazine, a publication which inspires and motivates readers to create a life they love through the online Life Labs platform. After 10 years working in the banking industry, I created my wellness consultancy, A Rockstar Mindset, to help ambitious women to become the rockstar of their life. How? By getting out of overwhelm, master your wellbeing and mindset so that you become visible and confident like hell. When I became a mum, I strove to be the best mum possible. I did not foresee that my attitude, my pursuit of perfection, would leave me feeling constantly overwhelmed and on the edge of burnout. But it has long been my belief that positivity is a driver for change and leadership, and when I learned about positive psychology and neuroplasticity (the ability of the brain to change and adapt), I was hooked. “Positive psychology is the scientific study of what makes life most worth living.” –- C. Peterson My approach is that there is more than we can see, that it’s fundamental to maintain a critical stance and to be independent of thought. I’ve always been the rebel, the outsider, the one to challenge the status quo and bring new and different perspectives or ideas. My encounter with positive psychology and the neurosciences confirmed for me that my beliefs (that we should think outside the box, focus on the positive) were accurate. I was on the right track! Convinced that there was another way to be successful at work and at home, I delved into the world of neurosciences, positive psychology and metaphysics and created my own system, Do Less, Get More Done – a framework that helps women to be successful with less overwhelm, whilst feeling more present. Positive psychology focuses on strengths instead of weaknesses, building the good in life rather than repairing the bad and reflecting on values and attitudes such as optimism, gratitude, compassion, self-esteem and resilience. The study of these topics came about from a desire to help people flourish and live their best lives. “It is not primarily our physical selves that limit us but rather our mindset about our physical limits.” ― E. Langer It is my conviction that every woman deserves to have a healthy mindset so that she can create a life on her terms. Why? Because we deserve to say stop to the pressure emanating from culture, social media, society. We deserve to be accepted and empowered. Our mind is our ally and must be strengthened as such. Shifting our mindset is vital as well as unlearning, removing the old beliefs holding us back, raising our consciousness and developing our intuition. But there's more. Mindset is important but your wellbeing is primordial. Working on your mindset and wellbeing is the formula to create a life you love. Combining your head and heart in everything you do is what makes all the difference. The difference that you crave to create in your life. The world needs us (as women) to positively make a difference to make the life of women, children, and future generations better. It’s time to build a healthy, conscious society based on mutual respect. And I genuinely believe that women have the skills to merge masculine and feminine energy to create something incredible. As for the rest: I love to travel, read books and dance with abandon. I’m married to a marvellous Frenchman and we have a daughter. I am fluent in English and French and I’m an advocate of beauty and women’s empowerment. My philosophy is Forward Thinking Communication and I’m here to help you become the Rockstar of Your Life.
