Hello There 2019!

“And suddenly you know…. It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of new beginnings”.


Welcome to another new year, a clean slate to continue your dreams and goals or to set new ones. The No.1 resolution this year for ourselves (and we hope for our rubies too) is to take more time for ‘self-care’. Too many women nowadays are too busy with work and looking after others that they often don’t have time for themselves anymore. They feel guilty about taking time out to care for themselves because somewhere along the way this was deemed being ‘selfish’.


Why do we underestimate the power of self-care?

Self-care allows us to experience an ongoing feeling of full engagement, joy and confidence that comes from being your best self, and when we are experiencing our best self this naturally flows into all areas of our lives.

Self-care isn’t selfish, it is vital.

To be your best self you need to set some time aside to focus on yourself, better yourself, and treat yourself. The easiest way to start self-care is to simply have a daily affirmation which you say each morning before you start your day.

Daily affirmations are positive statements that can help you to challenge and overcome any negative thoughts. When you repeat them often, and believe in them, you can start to make positive changes. They designed to encourage a life filled with positivity and gratitude. A daily morning affirmation can be as simple as “I am healthy”.
