When the feeling of loneliness creeps in, I find that listening to your favorite music can dramatically shift your vibration. I love listening to Sam Smith, Burna Boy, jazz, classical and some good gospel music to sing and dance along. Just losing yourself to your favourite music and being free can have a massive impact on your whole mood.

Food Glorious Food

Food is your best friend especially when you are feeling under the weather. I adore food as it brings so much happiness and comfort. So cook yourself your best meal or if you are like me just order In! You deserve it.

True friends will always be there for you, through the bright and dark days. Reaching out to a close friend and grabbing a coffee at Caffe Nero can be very relaxing. Sometimes we just need to load out so we can feel some sort of release which is good for us.

Inspirational Books

My all-time favorite books are The Bible, The Secret by Rhonda Byrne, Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill and Becoming A Leader by Dr. Myles Munroe. These specific books and many others have changed the way I look at life and I couldn’t be more grateful for it! So Thank you.

Motivational Video

When I was in year 11, my headteacher showed us a YouTube video at our assembly. The video was so inspirational it left with me goosebumps. I knew from that moment something in me had changed for the good.

This is what I needed to hear especially at the time when I was finding myself in the world. I remember heading home with so much excitement and googling all the speakers to fill my head with their positive words and till this day they have inspired me and I am consistently trying to work on my dreams, my mind and keep fighting through even when life seems impossible.

I am grateful that I voluntarily attended the assembly cause if I hadn’t I would have never known about motivational videos and the direct impact they can have on your life. By fair means, I would have been lost.

Below you will find the motivational video that made a big difference in my life. It is my hope that you will find inspiration in it.
