Grit Is What It Takes To Make Dreams Come True

I have been listening to a lot of episodes from The Life Coach School Podcast, created by Brooke Castillo and which talks about entrepreneurship, coaching, and Positive Psychology. There was one particular episode that really hit my brain and heart. It was an episode about grit, our ability to persevere and work towards a specific goal while also keeping our passion alive.

How To Find Your Life Purpose

People always hold something within themselves that they wish it could come true. In youth, we usually know what that looks like. Everything seems clearer in that regard and everything seems possible. We dream a lot, we travel within our limitless imagination and we are not afraid of doing so.

Walking for Gender Equality One Step At a Time & How You Can Help Too

When you start walking around, you find incredible things on the way. This is an old fountain dedicated to one of the most popular saints among the Portuguese: Saint Anthony of Padua.

I recently recommitted to Charity Miles, an app that tracks the distance you make – either by walking or running – and then transforms it into donations to a cause of your own choice. The app is totally free and the way we contribute is by keeping ourselves active and on the track.

What Does Your Perfect Day Look Like? | Questions to Fall in Love | Q4

I recently started a new series here at thewellbeingblogger.com called “Questions to Fall in Love”. This series was inspired on Stephan’s blog Stories of a Colorful Life and on an experimental Psychology study in which strangers were asked to answer a set of 36 questions. You can know more about this study and its goal here

And this particular post is based on a question that I often ask my clients:

What would constitute a “perfect” day for you?

The perfect day for me starts with NO alarm. I like to wake up naturally, and whenever the body feels like it is ready. Then I would have a delicious breakfast, preferably outdoors. My perfect breakfast is either an avocado toast with scrambled eggs and pepper OR a nice bowl of oats sprinkled with cinnamon, honey, and banana. Ah, and a nice cup of black coffee with no sugar, because life only starts after coffee! 😋

If I’m by myself, which happens quite a lot, I like to use my laptop and check what’s new on WordPress while I savour my delicious toast. As soon as I finish breakfast, I like to spend some time writing and finish my coffee. Next, weather permitting, I like to go for a long walk until lunch time – ideally next to the seashore or in a beautiful green space.

#Bonjour ♥️ #morning #coffee

A post shared by Vanessa 🎓 Psych Doc (@thewellbeingblogger) on

I love preparing my meals and that’s one of my favourite ways to practise mindfulness. I opt for doing healthy, nutritious and easy meals – food bowls are my favourites. Next I usually have another coffee and I start working on projects, answering e-mails, or anything else work-related like calling my coaching clients or preparing teaching materials. I often do creative activities in between, but everything depends on my workload and tasks.

At the end of the day, I like to have a small yoga session at home and then prepare dinner and do some grocery shopping in case something is missing. Since it’s a perfect day, I watch the sunset from my balcony (thinking about the house I used to live in Whitstable, UK) and I have a glass of Porto Wine while I feel the nightfall on me.

Afterwards I would then spend some time reading and connecting with other bloggers. Next I would either catch-up with my favourite series or watch a talk / documentary, until I fall asleep. 😴

What about you? What does your perfect day look like?
