How can you make a long-term commitment to continue to nourish and support your mindset?
In this episode I ask how you're going to ensure you make this a commitment for the long term.

I’m Dinah Liversidge and I’m a Coach and Trainer, a Celebrant and co-host of The Charcoal Hut, a woodland cabin in Myddfai, Carmarthenshire. I’m also a no-box-thinker. I believe when we stop trying to ‘think outside the box’ we take away labels and limitations that were always an illusion. There never was a box.

I love being a Coach, a Celebrant and a Host. All these aspects of my life help me achieve that illusive ‘work-life balance’ so many seem to be striving for. Join me in Myddfai in our woodland garden for a #MyddfaiMinute and listen to one minute of birdsong. I hope it brings you some peace.

If you’d like to explore Coaching, take a look at my Mindset Coaching here. 

I hope you’re enjoying my Podcasts. I’d love you to share them with someone you think would get something positive from them.

Speaker 1:

Hi there. I'm Diana Liversidge. Thanks for joining me on my no box thinking podcast today. It's the ninth episode of 10 in my February short podcasts. And this month I've been focusing on nurture and nourishment and how those can be applied to ourselves to support our mindset. So, today I wanted to ask you a question, how good are you at making sure you remember to do things? If all you do is think about all . I must remember to do those things. I know we get busy, right? And then those things don't happen. So here's the thing you've listened to my podcasts. I hope that you've listened in January and maybe even last December where I've really been talking about mindset and how we can support it. And focusing on this idea this month that we really do deserve to nurture and nourish ourselves to support a growth mindset. The thing is once you've stopped listening every day, what are you going to do to make sure you actually carry on with that nourishment and nurture? Well, I'd like to suggest that unless you actually commit to it, unless you put it in your diary as a daily activity, perhaps it's not the thing that's going to be the top of your priority. Good intentions are wonderful. Mine usually run out after about six days. If there isn't something to prod me to keep going to get over that initial. Oh, is this really making any difference? Because the answer is yes, it is learning a new habit, even a positive one. That that seems to be so obvious when we look at the benefits, learning that new habit takes a month. And for every day that we break and go back to old habits, we kind of have to push that a little bit harder to stick to that month. And unless there's something to prompt us everyday to do it, it's unlikely that we're going to do that. So today I'd like you, to be honest with yourself about what would work to act as a reminder to you for nurturing and nourishment. So I know that in my diary, every single day, in fact, it's in the diary twice. Most days, there's an entry that says tree time, that's an appointment in my diary, it cannot be overwritten . It can't be changed. And when people use my booking link to book appointments, that link recognizes that that time is not available. I don't make one to ones during that time. I don't any more say, Oh, it's okay. I was only going to be in the words . Now I say, I'm sorry. That's time. That is already committed. How about we share schedule at another time I learned that if I don't put time for me to be in the trees to step out of my little office space and go outside, it just won't happen. And as soon as it stops happening, I feel the impact. And you know what? So do the people around me, my head space is clearer, more confident, more settled, more calm when I've had that time outside. So how about you make that commitment right now that for this to be for the long term , you're going to put this in your diary. You're going to allow yourself that nourishment that you deserve and the nurturing to support yourself through this really challenging period in our lives start with 10 minutes. And yes, you do have 10 minutes. We all have 10 minutes that we can give to ourselves. The talking out of the busy conversation, the nonsense we tell ourselves, we do have that 10 minutes. We just have to decide that we are going to do it, and we're going to make it a new positive habit. I'd love to know how you're going to shackle that what's going to work for you. What will be your tree time equivalent? If you're enjoying the podcast, I hope you'll do me a big favor and share it with others. And I do hope that you'll join me for the last, in this series of 10 for February, where we are going to review how it has felt to introduce some nourishment and some natur I'm Diana Liversidge. Thanks again for joining me and remember no need to try and think outside the box. Once you acknowledge, there is no box.
