I have had a busy week in which I have been fortunate enough to see Blenheim, Nelson, Canterbury, Southland and Otago as well as spend time with extended family and close friends.
Although I was travelling for work, I got to see some beautiful parts of the country I live in and I am grateful for that.
Traveling that much in such a short time has meant early mornings, lots of driving and low sleep. In short, taking care of myself has been done "on the run".
As I come home, I am very aware that what I feel I need most is chill out time with my family. "Seeing my children grow up” was my number one motivating factor to do all that was necessary (that I was able to) in order to stay alive after my cancer diagnosis so I am honouring that instead of writing what I had planned to write about moving well and exercise.
I still have a lot to share about exercise and moving well - my views and my experiences and discoveries.
I am still fully committed to my "blogging once a week for the year" project.
But if I didn’t follow my own advice of taking care of myself then my advice wouldn’t be worth considering.
Thank you for your understanding, normal “service” will resume next week.

I have found with the people that I help that using minerals gives us a strong foundation to work with.
On a personal level I am extremely grateful for the support of minerals!!

When you start to think in a downward spiral, or become distracted or focussing on negative “unwanted” thoughts - of the past, the present or the future you simply tell your brain “Useful Thoughts Only”
The trick is catching yourself in the act, but I suspect you may have a few (or even many) opportunities each day to practice this technique. The great thing is, even if you realise after quite a while that you have been riding the unhelpful thought train, you can stop at any time and tell yourself - USEFUL THOUGHTS ONLY.
