Life is just a mirror. Smile at it and it smiles back at you! In times of difficulty, we can always control what is inside us and choose to have a positive attitude. It takes the same amount of effort than being negative, so let's smile!
In these challenging times we are all living in with self-isolation, many of us have been spending a lot of time indoors, mostly in our comfy house clothes. Not being as active as we normally are used to and also dealing with different situations you had never had before. It has been a time of change for sure! Change in our body and our mind.
Spending more time at home has meant, more cooking and more time in the kitchen. What is going to happen when we go out of self-isolation? What is the new normal going to be?
In Flowithme, we have been supporting our clients with facebook live chair yoga classes free every Monday at 11.30am Irish time from our virtual yoga studio. Check this video out to find out what chair yoga is.
Also with facebook live workshops on life coaching to tap into the clients’ desires and help to find clarity and put a structure that will support them once the situation goes back to some short of normality. Whatever normal is going to mean from now on, we will not know. We will have to wait and see.
See below life coaching session identifying the values and what are the needs / wants / wishes. A great technique to assist identifying the degree of importance of some things and actions and ultimately, the best way to live your life as acting from your values will motivate you to act on the things that you really want and succeed.
Identifying your needs / wants / wishes will give you a bigger picture when setting goals ensuring balance and fulfillment.
If living a healthy life is something that is important to you, Flowithme has combined healthy cooking and chair yoga in a new way.
Using Thermomix and cooking healthy meals, means that there is time in the kitchen to concentrate in your body and support it to stretch and get more active.

And now that self-isolation is coming closer, how do you feel about getting dressed again every morning in no so stretchy outfits? Maybe you want to keep looking after what you eat when you are again out and about, gone all day, not that much at home to make/have nice meals.
