The last few days have been a bit crazy with all this decision making and work and meeting family for the first time in what feels like forever… so I’ve had a lot of day to day stuff to write about.
However, I’ve been wanting to share a podcast I listened to by Fearne Cotton with Dr Rangan Chatterjee. They discuss how we make these big life changing decisions and then fail by setting our goals too big or unachievable.
They say it’s the wrong time to make decisions of this nature when you are in a motivated state as we cannot continue in an unmotivated state.
He suggests we try to change with only 5 minutes in a day. That’s achievable for us all.
Two minutes of meditation or deep breathing, followed by a minute of movement followed but two minutes of reading something motivational.
I’ve been lying in bed doing my deep breathing. In for 3, hold for 4 and breathe out for 5. I then look at my Rambling Sloth News feed on FB as that’s always motivational. Then when I’m boiling the kettle to make my coffee I literally dance about the kitchen like a mad thing! Now it’s only been two days….. but two days of consistency in my life is pretty good going.

I found the whole chat really interesting. He’s a doctor that believes in resolving the issues that a person presents him. Not to just describe pills. He said that years ago you’d go to the doctor and get a pill to fix something. Modern medicine now needs to be more all encompassing than that. Kinda wish he was my doctor…. 🤔😬
Dr Chatterjee also says about unfollowing anything that puts pressure on us on social media. That’s just as toxic as setting goals and not achieving them. Have done already and will do more now.
So I had another busy morning at Tartan. The time flies when I’m there.
I had 2 dog behavioural calls to make so got them booked in. I’m going to keep doing calls 3 days a week until Friday 21st May to help out.
Sitting outside with a wee alcohol free Pilsner. It’s actually really nice. The sun is out. The shorts are on. 🩳
Let my weekend begin.
Stay safe everyone ☀️☀️☀️
