It’s time for the first Link Fest of 2018!
This edition includes articles on living an extraordinary ordinary life, setting intentions and goals for the new year, creating a give back policy, simple self-care tips, unravelling the new year, plus my favourite things from last year and lots more.
I could have written a huge post on how 2017 unfolded for me and the things I learnt, but instead I’ve decided to do something a little bit different… Inspired by this list by Danielle LaPorte I’m sharing 16 of the best things I did in 2017. From little things, to bigger life-changing things, here’s some of the best things I did to make the most of the year (in no particular order)…
1. I started the year with a 31 day yoga experiment — then decided to do yoga every day for an entire year, which I did. And I’m still going now. This practice has been life-changing and keeps me grounded no matter what’s going on in my life or how full my schedule is. I’ve written about this experiment here and here.
2. I decided to go ALL IN on learning to drive and overcoming my fear of driving — for however long it was going to take. This was so powerful in so many ways, especially because I decided to keep showing up and keep trying even when it was challenging and I wanted to give up. And then, on September 22nd I passed drivers test and became a licensed driver! More on this here.
This year I’ve taken my yearly reflecting and planning slower than ever. I’ve taken my time working through this workbook, to reflect and unravel the lessons from last year and let myself process all that unfolded in 2017.
Planning for the year is always exciting, but this year I made it more enjoyable by making more of a ritual out of the process. I drew cards from this deck, worked (slowly) through this to help me choose a word for the year and carved out little pockets of space in my life to sit with my intentions and ponder what I wanted from this year. I also spend time planning at one of my favourite cafes with chai and bagels (where the photo above was taken) and to really enjoy the process of mapping out what I want to do/create/make happen this year.
Which brings me to this… I want to give you a peek behind-the-scenes and share with you what I have in store for 2018. From things that I’ll be continuing to do, new offerings/ideas I have and some personal insights into what I’m focusing on this year — this is an epic overview of what I have planned for the year. And I can’t wait to see how it all unfolds…
I love discovering what other people are loving/reading/watching/obsessed with, which is why last year I shared my first ever love list (inspired by Alexandra Franzen). It turns out that people loved finding out my favourite things, so I’ve decided to make it an annual thing.
Here is my Infinite List for this year. It contains my favourite books, tv shows, movies, podcasts, meditations, business tools, plus some random things I loved this year and experiences I enjoyed.
Each year I put together a Link Fest for oneinfinitelife.com, essentially it’s a round-up of the most popular articles on my site for that year. It’s always so interesting (for me) to discover what posts you loved the most and what had the biggest impact on you.
Here are the top 10 posts you loved the most in 2017, as well as a few of my favourite posts from the year.
One of the most common questions I get asked as a life coach is about motivation.
Recently, I’ve been asked, “How do you stay motivated all the time?” “What are some good steps to take towards motivating yourself?” “How do I motivate myself to do what I want to do?” “What is the best way to get motivated?” And so on…
I can’t believe it’s less than three weeks until Christmas! (Seriously, where has the year gone?!?)
As Christmas is right around the corner I’ve curated a Feel Good Christmas Gift Guide for you.
Some of these gift ideas are things I already have myself, some are things on my wish lists, some are things I have purchased for others — all of them are feel-good, do-good, or empowering.
Many of these products are made by individual people or small businesses, or business that are for good and I’m honoured to say I personally know many of the creators of these products. In other words, these gift ideas support actual human beings who are creating awesome things.
I hope you find something here for someone special in your life, or something for yourself that you love! 😉
It’s time for another Link Fest!
This edition includes awesome articles on putting off your happiness, the ironies of anxiety, minimalist gift ideas, rewarding your efforts and more. Plus there’s also some of my favourite things from the month, a round-up of things I’ve written this month and also how I’m reflecting on 2017.
It’s been way too long since I shared some book recommendations on my site, especially when you consider how much I love to read and recommend books to people.
This is Part 3 of my ‘Books that have changed my life series’ (you can read the first edition here and the second edition here). In this series I share with you books that I have read that I truly think are life-changing and highly recommend.
This edition may be my favourite one yet and contains 5 really amazing, life-changing reads for you.
Have you ever looked at someone else’s life and thought, “I wish I had it all together like they do?” And then proceeded to feel bad about your own life because you feel like a complete disaster
most of the time sometimes?
