"Put yourself at the top of your to-do list every single day & the rest will fall into place" - Unknown.
On Sunday evenings, I sit and set my intentions for the week ahead, as part of my self-care routine.
First of all, I do this by taking 10/15 minutes to go within and meditate to calm and clear the mind.
Then I ask myself:
How will I look after my body? (e.g. nourishing foods, yoga, water).
How often will I connect to my source? (Meditation, journaling, affirmations).
How will I best serve my family, clients, team & the world? (e.g. positivity, inspiration, compassion).
How will I practise self-care? (e.g. Reiki, EFT, essential oils).
How will I set clear energetic boundaries and maintain them?
How will I spread my positive vibes out to the world? (e.g. clear communication & consistency).
How will I take positive steps to expand my business every single day? (e.g. social media, email marketing, asking for referrals, events, networking).
I then plan everything out in my Carrie & Co. planner.
I'm a very visual person, and I love to see everything laid out in front of me.
Setting the intention & dedicating time to each practice helps me complete them.
Let me know one intention you are going to set today to focus on this week?

Did you know my clients come to me for help with 3 main reasons? Sleep, Anxiety & Finding their True Life Purpose.
In fact, these three all go hand in hand. If you can't sleep, you feel anxious, and then you are less likely to be goal orientated.
Have you ever had a couple of nights where your sleep pattern has been broken?
Do you remember how you felt the next day?
Imagine how you would feel if you hadn't slept properly for whole weeks, month or even years?
Sleep doesn't exist to just pass the time or to keep us from working 24 hours a day. Sleep is vital because it is inherently physically and mentally healing, and it allows for our bodies to not only recoup from the stress of everyday life but also to recharge and refocus.
When I was working in Corporate and in my highest periods of stress; my sleep patterns were all over the place. I was left feeling tired, weary, irritable and anxious. I was no-where near on my A-Game!
To relieve occasional sleeplessness, I take doTERRA Serenity Softgels. The softgels contain a combination of Lavender essential oil, L-theanine (an amino acid found in green tea), and plant extracts including lemon balm, passionflower, and german chamomile.
L-theanine specifically has been shown to improve sleep efficiency, which means the amount of time you are asleep.
I take 2 Serenity Softgels with my nighttime Pukka Cacao Macca Latte Magic drink before bed and then I tend to drift off mid-meditation!
To further support anxious feelings, I also want to tell you about Peace Touch Roller. This blend of earthy and grounding oils is a little magic chill out session in a bottle and was my saviour throughout my divorce hearings last year.
doTERRA Lifelong Vitality Pack can also be helpful. Experimental research findings indicate that after daily supplementation with these three products for two months, subjects reported more mental clarity, energy, motivation, control, balance, and happiness.
Email me for for further advice and how to purchase [email protected]
Share this with someone with anxiety that could use these tips!

Anyone else woken up like the walking dead today?! Wow! What a spectacular show the sky put on last night?! The girls and I were very excited to be woken up to watch the thunder and lightning!
I then fell back into the deepest sleep listening to the heavy rain lash down.
However, the rain was so big and ploppy (it's the only way to describe it LOL!) I had to shut my bedroom window, and I think I got too hot and fell in a very deep sleep.
So this morning I thought I would share with you my top tips for waking up when I feel like the walking dead: - 4 gallons of coffee LOL
- A cold shower
- A full dosage of Lifelong Vitality Supplements
- Inhale Peppermint oil and also rub it on the back of my neck.
- Diffuse Citrus Bliss & Motivate
- Make my bed (to stop me crawling back in it!) Out of curiosity, do you make your bed each day?

"The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before.
I love this quote by Albert Einstein.
As an introvert I have always enjoyed solitude.
People are often amazed when I say I’m an introvert as they say I’m confident or a social butterfly.
I think confidence and introversion are different things.
When I was little I used to get so anxious before going to parties; I used to sit and cry on the couch, clutching the gift.
I still feel painfully anxious when I walk into places on my own nowadays.
Yes, once I get going I can talk to anyone!
I struggle in large crowds of people, and I feel the need to “recharge” by being alone for a while afterwards.
I think this is why I love getting up early in the morning, it’s so quiet and peaceful and I can meditate and get on with my personal development.
Are you an introvert or extrovert or a bit of both?

Because of my past, I thought I had to do everything myself to prove I was some Superwoman (or actually to show I wasn't who other people said I was).
I was afraid to ask for help; I saw it as a sign of weakness.
I had massive fear I would be judged; For someone with low-self esteem already, its paralysing.
I wasted so much time sitting at home, alone, crying because I was too scared to admit I didn't know what I was doing or where I was going.
The truth is, I don't want to be Superwoman!
I want to be the best version of me!
At first, it was uncomfortable to ask for help.
Then it got to the point where I had to the benefits office and beg for help to feed my babies and put a roof over our heads (which took months to go through).
When you have nothing, and at rock bottom, pride flies out the window!
I think the lowest point was having to ask the next-door neighbour for their leftovers so I could feed the kids.
But this was a great life lesson for me.
It's ok to ask for help! Thank goodness I swallowed my pride!
I'm so grateful for the help getting me back on my feet.
I went to the doctor; he offered me antidepressants (which I refused) and counselling. I was assigned an Outreach Worker and was enrolled in the Freedom Program.
The police put a marker on my home.
This support made me feel so much more positive, confident and safe.
Sometime later, after EFT & Reiki came into my life, I got a job and restarted my career.
In my professional life, shortly after I started my business, I joined the Female Entrepreneur Association. It's the best decision I ever made.
Inside that group, it's a safe, non-judgmental platform where it's ok to ask for help.
In fact, they actively encourage you to ask for help.
In asking for help, I have grown massively as a person (personally and professionally over the last 2.5 years, possibly more than the past ten).
I am a better mother, leader and student.
My goal nowadays is to ask for help as much as is humanly possible but also to encourage others to do the same.
Asking for help has allowed me to feel free to live my life once more while staying calm and confident, so please feel free to ask me to show you how to do the same.
If you have something to ask me around sleep, anxiety, mindset, goal setting or life purpose, https://penelopesilver.as.me/?appointmentType=10787846" target="_blank">please book here. I'm here to help!

Here's a glimpse into my agenda:

Last November brought me my biggest success of 2018 yet!
I was awarded a Special Commendation for Best Health, Beauty & Wellbeing Business in The Talk of Manchester Business Awards!
It took me a few days for the news to settle in, I have been floating around on could 9, as I was in a category with doctors, dentists, other very well established & multi-million pound companies!
It's is such a good feeling when you are recognised for all the inner strength, hard work, focus and energy that made the success happen.
I would like to congratulate all the other winners and say a HUGE thank you to all my clients, family and friends who voted and made this award possible for me.
As Blossom approaches its 2nd Birthday; to all those women way over 40, single-nearly divorced mummies, who have a dream burning inside them... just go for it!
You never know where your journey may lead you...

I was contacted by a prospective client last week and asked why I always complete a new client wellbeing consultation as part of the first appointment and why I need this information?

We need all the details above to match the correct treatment to the symptoms, ensure that it is safe for us to provide the treatments you may ask for and also for insurance purposes.
The questionnaire also provides a starting point to be able to re-assess the treatments are working effectively.
