to January 2020

It could be the same post 2 years on but a differemt journey that I've just been on...

Small steps.
.
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.

Needing to escape London to hide their shameful secrets, they embark upon individual rollercoaster journeys of extreme highs and lows that take them to and the - where are sex is a commodity drugs are a way of life and a life optional.

BBC Radio London with Salma and Lionheart

BBC Radio London with Salma and Lionheart.
22.30pm Thursday night.
.
Chatting about how the perceptions of the perfect body and young women's positive body image has been dramatically and adversely affected with the advent of social media, especially over the last 10 years. . 
.
Back in the day - in the 1970s, the decade in which my novel "Secrets in the Dark" is set - young women would have scrutinised their bodyshapes in the mirror, wishing they could have been slimmer, taller or even bigger breasted - looking more like their favourite model or pop star - and addressed their issues with a dramatic diet or some slimming pills. 

They never had the pressure of negative online peer judgement and the skewed perceptions of online reality versus real life,  causing comparison anxiety, unrealistic ideals of perfection and mental health issues.

#tbt How strange it seems now that being in the middle of a crowd in a field at an IoW music festival was the normal

Our new normal changes daily.

We have to be positive and live in the moment – not looking further ahead than tomorrow, creating our new normal with at least one planned activity a day to look forward to – apart from your one daily walk/exercise outdoors.

You could make time to:
Phone or video chat to someone living on their own.
Make a cake – however bad.
Try an online fitness class.
Have a dance in the kitchen
Get dressed
or just do a meditation.
It gives a purpose and structure to the day.and helps your mental wellness.
Stay safe and well
