  2. #MakingTime Day 10

    mt day10

    “Communication – the human connection – is the key to personal and career success.” – Paul J. Meyer

    Work, family life, household chores and never-ending ‘to-do’ lists… when life gets busy it can be quicker and easier to text, tweet, telephone or do none at all. But when was the last time you took time out to have a good old-fashioned face-to-face conversation?

    Your Day 10 Making Time challenge: For 10 minutes… have a proper conversationSpending time with someone and engaging in real, genuine and meaningful conversation reminds us of what’s really important: the human connection. After all interacting with others and building relationships is how we learn, develop and grow.Today’s challenge is to take 10 and have a proper ‘in-person’ chat with someone – your partner, your mum, a friend, a colleague, a stranger in the park, a busker, the shopkeeper – anyone you like. Give that person all your attention, listen to them, ask questions, don’t interrupt and relax, smile and enjoy being human. We promise it will enrich your day – and theirs – more than you can imagine.

  4. #MakingTime Day 8

    mt day8

    “What matters is that we find a way – any way – to recharge and renew ourselves.”– Arianna Huffington in Thrive

    Your Day 8 Making Time challenge: For 8 minutes… stretch!

    Did you know that stretching is important for people of all ages and that it’s just as important as regular exercise? One of the greatest benefits of stretching is that it boosts self-esteem. When we stretch our bodies release dopamine, a hormone which helps us feel happier and more positive about the world. Other benefits include improved flexibility, strength, coordination and circulation, increased energy levels, reduced neck, shoulder and back pain associated with sitting at a desk, and better sleep.

    When stretching it’s good to move smoothly and slowly so you stay in control. You’ll get a deeper stretch this way. Adjusting your position so you’re more comfortable when you stretch is a great way to prevent pain and make the stretch easier. Ask yourself: ‘does my body have the support it needs?’ If not, give it that support. Add tension where it’s required so that other parts of your body can relax and let go.

    Today, make time to stretch for 8 minutes. Smile, enjoy and feel good.

    Your Day 7 Making Time challenge: For 7 minutes… go for a walk around the block without your phone 

    These days we’re plugged in 24/7. Between texts, emails, regular old phone calls, and notifications from Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, keeping up with everyone and everything can feel like a full-time job.

    Can you remember the last time you switched off? The last time you went 24 hours, 12 hours, even just a few hours, without checking your phone?

    “… Stop a moment, cease your work, look around you.” – Leo Tolstoy

    mt day6

    Your Day 6 Making Time challenge: For 6 minutes… dance like crazy to your favourite music!

    Dancing is incredibly good for your soul:

    • It instantly enhances your mood
    • It’s a way to escape your mind
    • You become completely present in your body
    • And it provides a boost of positive energy

    So today’s the day to turn up the tunes and go wild! As the age-old saying goes… ‘Dance like no-one’s watching!’ For six whole minutes let your body move in the silliest ways, invent some new moves or imagine you’re on stage giving the performance of a lifetime! And if your favourite song isn’t six minutes long, use it as an excuse to dance to two tunes. Go with the flow and have fun, laugh at yourself and enjoy it. We promise it will make you feel amazing.

  8. #MakingTime Day 5

    mt day5
    There’s nothing like sorting through your post and finding a beautiful postcard hidden amongst your bills. In an age where it’s quicker and easier to email, Instagram, Facebook, text, Skype or Snapchat, we’re on a mission to bring good old snail mail back!

    Your Day 5 Making Time challenge: For 5 minutes… write a postcard to someone

    A postcard is a quick and easy way to let someone know they are remembered. And unlike a letter, it’s short and sweet! ‘Wish you were here’ or ‘Thinking of you’ or ‘I miss you. Let’s meet up soon…’ are words enough if they’re from the heart. Even a few scribbled words will mean a lot to the person who receives them.

    mt day4

    As we hurry through our busy lives it can be hard to tune out the noise. Every now and then it’s important to stop and ask yourself: ‘What makes me happy?’ and ‘What do I want to offer the world?’ Sometimes you just need to pause, breathe and listen.

    Your Day 4 Making Time challenge: For 4 minutes… Close your eyes and breathe deeply
