Surrounded by positivity

Thats the key

It really is!! Removing negative people, habits and traits will have a massive impact on the quality of your mental health. It has mine. Over the past few months I have done exactly that and replaced them with positive ones. I feel so much better, refreshed, ready to go.

Your mind

That voice inside your head that is constantly holding you back from being free, from being who you really are isn’t necessarily just inside your head. Its also the people you surround yourself with. It may take years to realise that people you have had in your life are not actually doing you any good at all.


On the sofa all day eating junk and watching rubbish on TV is not good for your mental health. I know, I’ve been there. I spent the first part of the first lockdown doing just that. I felt and looked rubbish. I had days where I didn’t get out of bed. It took me a long time to “snap” out of that stage in my life, but I did it.

Get busy

Do something, anything. Start small, make your bed, get washed, get dressed do something, anything. The small things slowly become the big things. Its habit forming. Read that book you’ve been staring at for ages. Get out of the house, get some fresh air get some exercise. You will feel so much better.

Good vibes only

Learning to get rid of negative people was hard, very hard. I’m talking about the ones that sound like eeyore, no life in them whatsoever. Constantly putting everyone and everything down. I am fortunate to have some amazing positive people in my life right now. Some have been there forever, some I’ve met over the last year or so. Learning to get rid of negative people was hard, very hard.

Breaking habits

Learning to break old negative habits was hard too, very hard. I was the first to go for comfort food or have a drink when I was feeling low. No harm in having a drink now and again, just don’t rely on it. I’ve had far to many wasted days just lazing around. I still like a lazy day now and again, who doesn’t? Replace those crisps with some fruit, that beer with water. Hydrate yourself, look after you body and your mind will follow.

Annual leave

I’m on my 4th day of annual leave. I’ve been to the gym and trained 4 times. I’ve met with an amazing positive person. I’ve seen acts of kindness from people I don’t even know. None of this would have happened just a few short months ago. I only saw and attracted negativity. Change your mindset, change your life.

Whatever to put out into the universe you attract back. Be positive. Be yourself. Be free.
