Awaken Your Spirit

Some people think that focusing your precious time & energy on making yourself as happy and healthy as possible is a bit selfish and narcissitic.

We spoke about this idea at our recent event ‘Awaken Your Spirit for 2015’ in London, which saw lots of you come together to explore what you wanted to let go of this year in order to make space in your life for things that would bring you more joy next year.

Whilst there are those that think self-help and spirituality is self-indulgent, we would argue that it is, in fact, the very opposite, because:

You’re of no service to the world when you’re living from a place of unhappiness and self-destruction.

You can’t give what you don’t have; if you really want to make a difference in the world, make yourself happy & healthy first, then you’ll have far more energy & joy to give to others.

There are, of course, endless ways of looking after yourself, but ultimately, it’s about committing to whatever (non-destructive) practices help you to feel good about yourself.

Now, it’s over to you:

We’d love to know in the comments below if you think self-help’s just a bunch of self-indulgent nonsense, or a tool for world change. Do you find that if you’re happy, the people around you are also happier as a result? Any tips on self-help tools that have a positive benefit for others, as well as yourself?

Lots of love,

P & J xx
