So as I started to emerge from the bubble of the last few months, I have realised that it is time for me to take on a structured weight loss and fitness challenge, and stop taking my health for granted, so I’m looking at Terrafit. We have now booked a summer holiday for August, and it is time for me to put myself first and try to get into some sort of shape.
So here I am back to my blog at last, and I simply cannot believe that a whole two months have gone my since my last post. In January I wrote of my intention to post better and more frequently this year, and there I went not a month later, on an extended sabbatical. I don’t know if any of you have been wondering what happened to me, but I’m afraid I’m going to bore you with it anyway.
Procrastination is the thief of time – so they say
We’ve all had one of those days. You’re sitting on your own in your office and you know that there is something you absolutely need to do, but for some reason you just can’t bring yourself to get going at it.
Bounts is an app which allows you to receive rewards when you carry out various daily exercise tasks. So you can track your daily exercise, and then be paid in real tangible things like shopping vouchers. This sounds like a really good idea and very motivational, so I decided to put it to the test.
Willpower is something that we all need and seems to be lacking at this time of year. Two weeks into January and the resolutions are starting to crumble. The first cold days have come and suddenly that urge to go running or go to the gym is not as strong as it was last week. Comfort food is calling, and some of the old bad habits can start to sneak back in, just for a day at first, and then…..
So here we are at January blues time – not even a week back to work, and already the media are trying to convince us that January is the most depressing time of the year.
Are you leading the life you want to, or do you feel as though you are just going through the motions each day? You go to work to provide for your family, you come home and spend time with your kids and yet you feel as though something is missing.
You may be surprised to know that thousands of people feel the same way. They love their families but just can’t put a finger on what it is that is missing.
To really feel as though you are living your life completely you need to feel fulfilled. Feeling fulfilled leaves you with a sense of pride and accomplishment. You are satisfied each and every day and it shows in your actions and your thoughts.
This post was first written and published in January 2015, four months after Younique UK launch. I substantially updated it in January 2016 and the updated bits are in blue. In late 2016 I decided not to continue with Younique, and I am now an Independent Wellness Advocate with doTERRA.
My change does not reflect any criticism of Younique – as you will see below I loved the ethos of the company and happily endorsed it while I was there – it is just that I personally prefer the product range of doTERRA essential oils to cosmetics, and I feel more comfortable using them and recommending them. I have realised that loving the products and being passionate about them is the first step to becoming a truly successful distributor and I am grateful for my time in Younique which taught me so much and finally led me to the MLM company that I think I will stick with
An honest review of my first two months as a Younique presenter – warts and all
This is the original post from 2015.
If you have been anywhere near my social media feeds recently (or in fact if you have been anywhere near social media at all) you can hardly help but notice that Younique Cosmetics has launched its direct sales business in the UK.
Everywhere you look there are people taking selfies of their eyelashes, ranging from the pretty to the pretty extreme, and every facebook group is awash with people trying to tell you that Younique is the best thing ever and trying to get you to join their team. So is it the best thing ever? Or is it just another load of hype or some kind of scam?
And so the majority of our children have gone off to their nurseries, schools and colleges and we are settling back into our routines again. For many of us, this means back to the same old thing, but for some there has been a transition – first or last child starting school or moving schools, and some of us will find ourselves with more free time on our hands.
This is the time of year when many mums think about taking up a part time business venture, to fill those extra hours. One of the most popular formats for working from home part time jobs is the party plan or Multi Level Marketing (MLM) opportunity.
