2019 the “You Year”

The “You Year”when it comes to planning your new start for 2019!

The new year is almost here and it’s the perfect opportunity to make it the “you year”; find out who you want to be and make it happen!

This new year make every step count; remember goals don’t have to be too Big to be as equally important!

Remember perseverance also shows your really invested and truly want what your aiming for rather than “I should be doing this but don’t really want to”.

Keep the path true to you!

Keeping visuals on your “you year” to motivate you. Help from photos or that item of clothing you want to wear to identify yourself. You might want to have words to help describe you; such as active, healthy, happy.

Success step examples might be;

Keep a diary, have a tick-off chart for each day you did what you set out to do;

An object such as, “That dress or suit” hanging up you want to fit again and feel the best you can be;

That fun dance class that doesn’t feel like exercise but is helping you be more active;

The walk or hike with friends, which means your socialising and being active all in one go;

Have a list of new things to try, projects you want to do round the house to make you feel productive and organised.

Keep this new year fun and interesting, try new things, new activities and visit places you haven’t before, keep things motivational and moving throughout 2019!

Remember something that challenges you positively both mentally and physically is important as it links in your mind and body healthy.

Surround yourself with people that boost you to want to succeed and feel good about who you are. Take part in activities that motivate you and always have something that are also just for you “me time”

Create a list of days out for when you have free time so your ready and prepared to max the use of this time and go and do something positive and planed; such as walks in parks/gardens you may you have annual access to and surrounded yourself in some good “old free fresh air” in natural surroundings of the great outdoors.

Another really good tip is, when your in a good place ask yourself what helps you on the days where you motivation slips a little, then make note of the “go-to’s” that spur you on!

When looking at the new year 2019, remind yourself of all the steps you have already taken to get to where you are!

I love when a new year comes around and letting go of what has been and cant be changed and looking ahead at the new beginning ahead.

My diary has a clear page and a fresh start! So when it comes to the new year I have realistic but motivational goals for myself and I can’t wait.

I work out what I want to focus on by working out what are my 4 core areas of my life right now and write a positive shift I would like to make in each area of my life.

I wish you all a happy “You” year 2019!

Your “Creative Diet”

When was the last time you did something creative?

Can you remember what it was and how much you actually enjoyed it?

Well what about doing something creative daily?

 What about ensuing you have a “creative diet”?

We always look at the word “diet” and associate it with food when the word ‘diet’ actually comes from an ancient Greek word meaning “a mode of living”.

The word “creative” means “to use imagination and ideas to create something”

A “creative diet” therefore is your mode of living with a life full of ideas, imagination and energy.

So when we at Brain Biscuits talk about your “creative diet”, we mean what amounts of creativity are you using throughout your daily routine to feed/fuel your mind and imagination?  How do you express yourself, and what do you enjoy?


We ask our clients these questions as it is so important for them to consider creative pursuits if this is something they feel they would enjoy within their goal setting.  We do this as its fuels a positive mindset as being creative  allows us time to connect to something that we use as a way of expressing ourselves.

Remember there is no end to the list of what you could do to be creative!

Most creative tasks are something visual, this helps see your progress.   Whether it’s the completed jumper you have knitted or the song you have written or played, or the dish you have cooked!

So go ahead try it!  Get creative, feed this into your day make it an important part of your daily routine, self expression and of you!
