Start something new

It’s never too late to start something new!

You have the chance to start something new – big or small. Now could be the time with Covid 19 keeping you home. Make this a constructive and purposeful time. The little voices in your head may pipe up with fears and excuses.

  • You’ll not be able to rise to the challenge
  • You’re ‘not good enough’
  • There’s not time!
  • It just won’t be possible to stick to it

Notice your negative thoughts

You are aware of these negative voices, but you’re going ahead anyway. Do it! You’ve got nothing to lose! This is the perfect time!

Notice where you are now. And if you choose to take on this challenge, look at where you might arrive further down the line. What benefits might there be?

Start something new – a Mindfulness Course!

Starting something new could mean making a decision to commit to a course of some kind.

Students who join me on one of my Mindfulness and Meditation Courses are often at a point in their lives where they’re feeling overwhelmed and stressed. (You can read their testimonials here).

They know that what they’d like to feel is greater calm or to be able to manage negative thoughts. The Covid 19 pandemic may well be a time when anxiety and uncertainty are heightened for you.

Once doubts have been allayed, you can set your intention and begin.

You make a commitment to yourself to sign up and schedule it into the diary.


This is something for you.

Put your mental health and physical wellbeing first.

Be willing to give something new a go!

Make the best use of this challenging time.

For something like a Mindfulness & Meditation Course, you will need to set aside some time each day to do what needs to be done – mindful tips and simple exercises. There are numerous benefits, which you can check out here.

Part of valuing yourself is to schedule as little as a daily 10 minutes to sit in stillness and breathe. Whatever the daily challenge is, do it each day with a sense of curiosity and learning.

You’ll find that you are gently introducing simple yet profound new habits.

Whatever you choose, don’t be afraid to start something new
