One day each week wearing normal clothes seems to help mental wellness and even brings a tiny bit of the old normal back again into your life – even briefly.
Positivity can improve immunity
If you wear contact lenses it’s good to give your eyes a rest some days. Especially if you get dry eyes as you get older.
I’ve worn contacts since the age of 12. Until recently no one ever saw me in specs. The contacts were straight in first thing in the morning and removed last thing at night.
I felt ‘less than’ in my specs- not confident, not sexy – not me. Now I feel I can embrace wearing glasses and have all sorts of styles, shapes and colours.
My specs have become an additional fashion accessory- to embrace wearing- not an embarrassing encumbrance.

We all like to find a bargain or two to add to our wardrobes when we’re not re-wearing or upcycling our clothes- as the Duchess of Cambridge did last night at the Baftas.
Wearing vibrant colour can bring you joy and brighten up your day.
Sometimes it’s good to venture out of your comfort zone and experiment.
Today I’m wearing :
Cotton crop polo-neck from Zara (under £10)
Blue trousers from Zara sale £5.99 (reduced from £29.99)
Heels from TK Maxx in 2019 (around £30)
“Gong hei fat choy” in Chinese translates to:
“Wishing you great happiness and prosperity.”
Wearing the colour red symbolises luck, joy, vitality, celebration and good fortune in Chinese culture.
May all your wishes, hopes and dreams come true for you this new year.
Sometimes we all need to stop and take stock of where we are now and where we would like to be… say in three months, six months, a year.
The start of this new decade 2020 can fill us with renewed hopes and expectations.
But be realistic in your aspirations.
Keep visualising……the possibilities:
Make your visualizations a reality.
Could it be…..
A new romantic partner in your life.
An abundance of money flooding in to pay bills.
A fitter body achieved with a new healthy lifestyle and exercise.
An exciting job you would like to be offered.
Give your dreams a chance to be fulfilled.
Rome wasn’t built in a day and it’s still only the 2nd week of January.
When life is tough don’t give up.
It’s easy in January to make all those unrealistic resolutions and set yourself up to fail.
So start your journey with small steps.
A step by step change of thinking.
It could be that you want to:
Change your life.
Become fitter, healthier.
It could be anything……..
Start each day when you wake up to be grateful for 3 things in your life. That way the day will begin on a positive note.
Remove any negativity and replace with positivity and the possibilities of what you can achieve with each of those small steps.
Be the master of your own destiny.
