Helping women to live a conscious life is a personal mission that keeps me moving. What can we do to increase our level of consciousness?




1. Conscious people live in the present moment.

The present moment is a magical space where we can connect with our reality with no internal commentary. No judgement. No anger. And no anxiety. Only peace and connection with who you truly are.


2. Conscious people set up intentions

I take a few minutes every morning and pick a couple of things I would like to achieve during the day. They are usually not big things:

  • call my mum
  • finish a work presentation
  • try a new recipe
  • Sometimes I decide to face something that I’ve been putting off for a while. This is harder. When I do that I visualise my emotional reaction and anticipate how to regulate my emotions. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not but it’s always good to try.

3. Conscious people know how to manage their reactions

Our body is always ahead of us. That’s why sometimes we’re sorry we didn’t think twice before we just did this or that.


4. Conscious people communicate assertively.

Conscious people communicate their own needs honestly and respectfully.


5. Conscious people know how to reframe their perspective.

The quality of our thoughts equals the quality of our life. So…. what would happen if we could consciously transform our negative thoughts into positive ones?

  • – “ I never get it right” > “ I am learning every day”
  • – “ Everybody knows more than me” > “ I enjoy observing and learning from others”
  • – “ This is impossible” > “ Everything is possible”
  • – “I can’t do this” > “ I can do anything if I put my heart into it”
  • – “ I am too old” > “ I have a lot of experience”

6. Conscious people know how to manage their energy

These are a few things we can do to protect and manage our energy:

  • Keep hydrated
  • Take a nap
  • Breathe
  • Identify what drains you
  • Exercise
  • Avoid/limit alcohol and smoking
  • Go to bed early
  • Meditate
  • Notice your thoughts
  • Notice your feelings
  • Pause
  • Write it down
  • Eat well
  • Focus your attention
  • Express gratitude
  • Practice compassion

7. Conscious people practice reflection

This is a way to process what has happened during the day and to create space to listen to your inner self.

  • set up intentions
  • manage our reactions
  • communicate assertively
  • reframe our perspective
  • manage our energy
  • practice reflection
