The Joy Scientist working to make you more joyful and happy in your lifeThis week's affirmation: Celebrating life enhances my experience

How did you get on with my little challenge from last week of looking where you were judging things.

I'm feeling positive, if a little tired still, after the interesting times I've been having. I love being happy and positive, but I know that for myself, the way I know I am happy and positive is because I have some comparison.
In my not so distant past, I have judged, been negative, talked people down, sneered and laughed and sometimes been a bit of a bitch.

What? really? no! I can't believe it Andrea, you're such a nice lovely positive person. Well, it's true and it's OK. It's all part of who I am and who I am yet to become.

I see life as a journey and sometimes the road needs resurfacing. Sometimes, it's smooth sailing as you glide along ( me on roller boots rather than a boat!) But it's all life, and it's all part of the journey.

Often we want to understand what is going on and why things happen, and often when we think we know what is happening, a wild card or curve ball gets us and knocks us down. Do you have padded trousers on today?? Hee hee.

When I'm feeling down, I listen to why I feel down and try as best to accept it. I am who I am and some days I'll be a miserable old cow, and others be bouncing and cheerful.

Having been up and down and where I am now, I realise its all transitional, and the most confusing things that happen, just defy explanation. Maybe the universe knows what it's doing, maybe it doesn't. Maybe everything is just about muddling through.

If you ever think about giving up, don't. Just take a breather - a short rest at the side of the path. Take in some sights. Hang around for a bit. Only get going again when you are ready. There's plenty to see wherever you find yourself.

I'm off out into the garden now, as there are some nettles and brambles that need pulling up and stamping on. The nettles round our way are like ninjas, they can get you through gloves and then when you least expect it they attack your arms and legs.

Still the fact that they grow means I have good soil. Even though this isn't great for my numb fingers !

Before I ramble too much more and put you all to sleep I'm going to call it a day. Remember, life is a journey, of ups and downs and roundabouts. Enjoy the roller coaster ride, and take a breather when you need it. I'm always cheering you on to do whatever you want. Take care of yourself.

Have a great week, and I'll be around soon with some exciting news and an opportunity not to be missed.


Have a happy week.


Keep Smiling !

Hello everyone! Hello 2014!

I do apologise for not blogging since October! I've been having such a great and busy time. All the work that goes into running your own business has been at times overwhelming. Still, I'm enjoying it much more than sitting at a desk staring out the window so all is good.

This year, I plan lots of exciting developments and creations. Firstly - weekly newsletters and blog posts. At the moment I am planning out what my regular week looks like so I can get good timings and not be overwhelming people with too many sendings. I have a venue for a weekly yoga class and in negotiations at the moments regarding costs and offers. Once I've it all sorted, I am advertising ! oooh. A first and exciting and nerve racking. or should that be wracking? hmmm.
Anyhow - my corporate yoga classes are still being run and I am excited to delve deeper into postures with my students. I've joined 4Networking community and am really excited about all the people I am getting to meet and the help they are offering along with what I can offer back to them.

Personally I've a busy year as my sister is getting married and there are a few trips up the country and off to Barcelona. Am really excited about that too.

I have created an ebook for January - 10 steps to beat the January blues with The Joy Scientist. Hopefully the link takes you right to the book on Kindle. Its having promotional days being COMPLETELY FREE ! from 17-20th January and also on the 31st January. Buy and read for a wonderful January. I'd love some feedback/comments as well - that way more people can download and hear about it and be happier and more joyful in their lives. Spread it round and pay it forward.

With that offer a couple of my other ebooks will also be free during those times - search for my name in amazon to locate them.

I'd love to do some Laughter sessions this year - get in touch if you want to be part of a laughing community in Berkshire, UK. I specify the UK bit as I am starting to get international fans(is that the right word)/followers. How even more exciting!

To keep in touch with my newsletters sign up here - http://eepurl.com/w_YjL - strange address but its a mailchimp list so your details are safe and I don't like to spam and I certainly wouldn't sell peoples details.
