1. Keep positive ~ it is hard to often keep focus and stay positive when there is so much negativity in everyday life. You do not have to listen all the negativity around, if you think positive and act positively then you will be more positive yourself. Feed your mind with all kinds of positive statements about life, yourself and the world you will in turn change your thoughts and mindset. You will become more empowered, more relaxed and completely at peace with who you are and what you want.

2. Be creative ~ Creativity is essential in everyone's life. If you let your creative side flow freely you will release tension, let go of resentments, anger and blame to become a better you and live more freely and fully. Write, draw, sing, take photos or dance to express yourself in any way you like. Do not judge yourself (which is really hard as we are more often than not our harshest critics). Be yourself as no one can be a better you than yourself.

3. Sleep ~ 7 hours of sleep per night is a must if want to function to be the best you can be, putting you in a good mood and help you function to your highest level.

4. Plan to pamper yourself ~ by looking after yourself. Give yourself a manicure and pedicure and paint your nails in your favourite shade. Soak in the bath, apply a face mask, exfoliate your skin and place a nourishing moisturiser to nourish your skin. You will feel more confident, rejuvenated and totally relaxed ready to be the best you can be.

5. Create your own sanctuary ~ A place where you can create your own little space when you need time alone.  Add all the little things that you love. Add a touch of you with books + magazines a candle to create a haven for you surrounded by the little things that make you smile.

6. Stay in bed + read ~ Treat yourself and lay in bed reading a good book, flick through magazines or read your favourite blogs on your iPad with your favourite hot drink to start the day on a happy note.

7. Practice mindfulness or meditation ~ Take as little as 15 minutes out of your day to 'just be'. Let your thoughts wander without holding onto them and breathe in control noticing each inhale + exhale.

8. Do yoga ~ Yoga is good for the mind, body and soul. Your body needs movement to connect your mind to be in tune with your body and the universe.

9. Learn to say no ~ Have firm boundaries and learn to say no if you really do not want to do something you have been asked to do. Yes, saying no, can make you feel uncomfortable, but you cannot please everyone.

10. Start something new ~ Engage in something new. Finding pleasure in something you have not done before can make you happy. Take on a new activity, a new adventure, anything that you have always wanted to do or achieve and feel empowered by achieving something new.

11. De-clutter your home ~ I know if I have too much clutter around, especially holding onto items we do not really need or want I often feel frustrated and unsettled until the area is clear. Taking the time to de clutter will lighten your emotional baggage and free up space for something new or keep fresh and clean.

12. Be you ~ Be yourself with all your imperfections and flaws. You are enough just the way you are. Focus on being who you are meant to be and be proud of you.
