3 steps on keeping positive

Getting the information you need to learn the Law of Attraction takes a whole lot of time.  I have been at it for some years now and still often get blown away with new ideas.  So, how do you learn what you need?  How, also, do you use it to keep positive when your day is not going so well as you would like?

There are so many tips and tricks that I will keep it simple on here and just share with you a few exercises that you can use to bring you right back into the state of mind that will allow you to push through the negativity.

* Breathe.  Use your lungs to full capacity.  Fill them deeply with air using your nose.  Then slowly release with an open mouth and try to calmly say 'AHH'.  This gives a vibration through your chest and seems to instantly 're set' things.

* If you are in the middle of a meeting, exam or such a place surrounded by people (who may find your 'ahhhh' a little weird) try this:
Look around you and begin to name things you see. 
"There is a red fire extinguisher"
"I see a clock on the wall telling me it's 2.10pm"
"The table in front of me has four legs."
"This chair is very comfortable."
And so on.  You get the idea?  Ok, so what's the point in all this?
Maybe you've heard of living in the now?  There is a suggestion that if you live in the past you can get depressed, if you live in the future, you can get anxious, yet in the now: It is what it is.  This is how it is right this second.  Picturing all the things around you will help you get back into the moment and live it for what it is.  When you come back 'to it' you will be feeling so much better, it's almost like magic.
Try it.  Let me know in the comments how you get on.

* Getting back into the 'Vortex'.  This is a phrase used by Abraham Hicks.  It's suggesting that the vortex is a wonderful place where you feel your heart sing and your spirit lifting.  Try and remember a few moments where you have felt like this.  It's a far cry from depression and anxiety. Right?
Ok, so if you've had a bad day, you need to focus on getting back in the Vortex. A way to do this is to focus on something that makes your heart sing.  For me,  it's listening to music.  Maybe loudly in the car.  Singing perhaps.  So what is your 'thing'?  Going to the gym,  working out?  Stepping into the Jaccuzi?  Putting on make up, doing your hair, taking selfies and putting them on instagram?  (Share them in the comments?)

Of course, if you want to learn more about the Law of Attraction you can download my book for 77p on the right hand side or you could search in Youtube for Law of Attraction. 

I'd love to know this has helped you.  Leave a comment or email me.  Keep in touch!  Have a happy, positive day

Much love

We are going to see Zoella on her book tour!

YES!


We really are off to see Zoe

Typical Pink Teenager and I were enjoying dinner out when she flushed and almost squealed in delight to quietly tell me (she’s great at checking her mood before engaging her words!) that Zoella was doing a book signing.

When she gave me the sketchy details of where it was, instantly I knew where this was going to be and it’s literally just half an hour drive from our home.  Fantastic.  My baby girl enlightentened me to let me know that for health and safety reasons there would be tickets sold.  Not for money making - important fact - but rather you kind of buy the book in advance and then Zoe will sign it as you queue with your ticket.  So, of course we are so super excited.  However, I digress.

This blog is all about your Lusher life,  your dream come true.  



Zoe sure has made her dreams come true.  She is a perfect example of how you really can make things happen.  So, how has she done it?

From what I know (and if you are a huge fan you will know more than me!) she started walking around with a video recorder at an early age.  From there and recording on holidays, she decided to begin documenting her findings on the fashion and make up front.  
What is out there in the shops?  
How much are these items?
How good are they?

From there, she found all sorts of offers flooding in.  Yet it’s not just about wishing it to happen and here in finds the issues with the Law of Attraction at times.  Visualisation is wonderful of course, and neccessary. If you need help with yours click here.




However, Zoe has consistently done the work.  She has regularly blogged and Vlogged as well as making her usual Youtube videos which now see her with millions of subscribers.

Anyone can do this these days.  You tube is fast becoming a preferred channel and I’m starting to wonder if TV might become a thing of the past.  So, if you wanted to get started, get cracking.  There are so many Youtube channels out there showing you how to do the technical stuff.  All you really need these days is a smart phone.  You can record in HD and if you download the “Capture” app you can upload straight to your Youtube channel!

Very exciting times ahead. 

Will you instantly make a million from it?  Unlikely.  Be real.  Even Zoe was still working full time when she started.  Now it’s her full time job,  much the same as many of her Youtube friends.

So,  I’ll report back with photos and show you how the lovely Zoe (surely a Lusher Lifer!) was on her book signing! 

Comment below to let me know if you managed to get a ticket for her signing!
Maybe we will see you there!

Much love



Here are some links to the books the Youtubers have out just now (plus Zoe on pre-order, out next week).

Want more nutrition from your meat?

Have you ever cooked a piece of meat, say a chicken breast or slice of bacon, and notice how it reduces in size? It then ends up boiling in a liquid that you definitely haven't added. 

Well, perhaps the meat you bought had added stuff, like water, in it. 
So, the mass of the meat (overall weight) will be less in the way of good nutrition like protein. 

If you are building muscle mass, eating healthily or simply trying to aid satiety (feeling fuller for longer) to help weight loss, you need to pay close attention. 

There is a way to increase your protein without increasing the cost. 

Mixing with some very experienced professionals on my dietetics training, I have learned about a company called http://www.musclefood.com
I've ordered from them and have so far been VERY impressed. I'd suggest you take a look. I often bleat on about coconut oil from my favourite supplier Coconoil and musclefood can even supply me with that. 
Nuts by the load...great for making your own almond milk (no added sugars!) and the list goes on. 

It's shockingly cheaper than the supermarkets and delivered to your door!
I'd suggest you check out the website and should you decide to order, enter this code for 4 FREE chicken breasts :
LU75989


Let me know how your first order goes!*

Spreading yourself too thin?

We have all done it at times.

I'm as guilty as the next person.  Yes, we spread ourselves too thin.  What happens from there is this:

*You feel stressed.
*You realise you aren't achieving your goals.
*You get frustrated with yourself. 
*You wonder if you are actually as good at this stuff as you want to be. 

So, how can you make it easier?

*You could sleep less....well, maybe not less but for some, getting up an hour earlier (while the house is still quiet) can help you achieve more. 
*You could use apps for your social media (try hoot suite) and you can put all your posts in at once and schedule them for timed release. 
*How about employing a helper? Even if it's your teenagers to do the washing up.
*A PA would be even better!
*Someone on an apprenticeship can be great value and you're helping someone get on their career ladder. 
Or this one is golden:
*You can use google analytics to see where you could change things!

As an example, we hear so much from the gurus on how to niche down our subject areas. This isn't wrong. However, imagine if your audience were interested in you regardless of what you post/write/video.

Think about yourself as an audience member. Think about someone who you follow. If you subscribe to them on YouTube because they post great videos about bodybuilding, imagine if they posted a video from their holiday in California! How would that make you feel? 
Interested in them sharing? 
Irritated to the degree you unsubscribe? Or would you simply skip any content that doesn't interest you?

I would skip. But then, I'm very nosey so would likely watch it!
So, for me, a great way is to ask your audience. Google analytics tells me this blog has a higher % of men readers. This surprised me. Hi guys. Hi ladies too. Now, I feel inclined to share my hairdressing and beauty tips, as well as law of attraction, photos and nutrition (cooking too). Previously, I've felt compelled to separate all this up. 

Then I just log in to find I've neglected this blog in favour of my nutrition blog. Instead, how would you guys like to see me post the nutrition stuff here too?
If you aren't interested, skip it. 
This blog has been going quite some time and has a big audience every day. Makes sense to nurture this blog. 

It's just me. Talking about my interests. 

Let me know what you think.
To grow your own blog you can advertise here too! See the sponsorship page. 

Next up, I'll tell you about my activity week in Scotland!

Much love

Louise xoxo

Photos from the weekend

Weekend news

Feeling lucky :)
Family time this weekend was very special. Through this post you will find many useful links to help share the joy. 

Unusually,  I had a Saturday off from working. We decided to enjoy a wonderful Premier inn breakfast (children under 16 go free for every paying adult) then headed off early to Chessington World of adventures.  We love it there!!!


A quiet day there, maybe folks were waiting for the Halloween fun to start. That's always worth a look.  Gardens decorated in hundreds of pumpkins, the friendly variety of witch to greet you at the door (and pose for green-faced photos) and dry-ice galore. 
Yet this weekend was a ride filled time. With quieter queues, my daughter braved the Dragons Fury ride for the first time. Such a cool character. She loved it! 


Of course on days when Chessington is busy, there are animals galore just waiting for you to see them. Penguins stretching for little fish dinners, you'll always learn a bit of history and Biogeography too!
So it really doesn't matter if you hate standing in a Queue, there is always plenty to see.


Now, here's a great tip for you; if you or anyone in the family has a student discount card (NUS Extra) you can buy a yearly Merlin pass ticket and save 25%.  This is a huge saving and one I used when getting our family tickets.  Now, there is another way of course and that is to use your Tesco Clubcard vouchers.  When we got ours, we used £50 of vouchers in exchange for one yearly Merlin Pass ticket. 
This doesn't exempt you from parking payments though which is a bit of a cross to bear for many thrill seekers but you can upgrade your ticket to pay for parking charges.



Thorpe Park is another park you can enjoy with the Merlin pass in your pocket.  Although we avoided this.  Reason being, it's full of Zombies chasing you and such like.  Goto Youtube and search Thorpe Park fright nights.  You will see what I mean.  Much too scary for my liking.  I've a crazy imagination and these images will stay with me forever.



So, after enjoying our day out,  I decided that the next day should be quieter.  Off to Argos to get a nice new trampoline for the children (and adults) to keep fit on! As you will see from the photo, Harley dog really wanted to get in on the action!


What did you do this weekend?  Hope you had a good one.

Much love

Louise xoxo

Blogging-what should you write?

So what should you write in a blog?

For me, my favourite thing is sharing photos and thoughts. Random thoughts. This is because this is what I love to read in other blogs. 

Sometimes, I find I mentally write, wherever I am! Maybe at the gym, right now, on a train. A man sitting next to me clearly coming over into my space. His perfectly blue pinstripe suit, the type of newspaper and fact that his age is talking to me, suggests a gentleman in a high power position. Does this give him the right to squash me against the window? No. Doubtless, he's a bully at work. I might just have to open and eat my cheese and onion crisps ;)

Now I feel a blog should be whatever fires your spirit up. Me, it's writing and sharing photos. You guys seem to love my law of attraction stuff. 
Google analytics tells me that most of my audience are fellas (hi guys) which surprised me a little. I love to know what you like to see. 

I've other blogs too where I share different subjects of mine. 
I've a nutrition blog, a photography blog and some other professional stuff (coaching) yet I'm tempted to share the nutrition on here and the photography. 

I'd love your comments on what you like to see. Email me. 

So for you, if you are a blogger what inspires you? If you would like to start a blog-go for it!
If you are shy you don't need to add your name. Anonomous is fine! Will just take longer to build your audience without sharing to social media. Then, blogs like mine also offer very low cost ($5 per month) adverts on the blog. So you can gain momentum quickly. 

Meanwhile, I'll share a random photo for you and wish you a wonderful day. 



Much love

Louise xoxo
