2017 Year in Review

I want to share a key activity we do here at RuralScope each and every January.  It's a simple one and is great for team building as all staff can participate.  But the best part of all is that it cleans the slate ready to bring in new things for the year ahead. We call it CLEANSWEEP.  We grab our diaries and go through each month identifying key things we did / achieved / mucked up etc etc for each month.  And through this process we jot down the highlights as we go.  And we also acknowledge things that didn't go to plan and let them go.  It is a fabulous time for each of us to reflect, review, acknowledge, let go and celebrate.  One thing I know for sure is that it creates pride and allows each of us the time to re-calibrate for the year ahead.  We have just completed our CLEANSWEEP, here's what we found.....

10 New Year Wellbeing Tips

I am always bombarded with an array of workshop, webinar, teleseminar and conference offers at the beginning of the year. Most of them are about learning the business secrets to increasing cash flow, improving marketing, setting up a to die for business plan, getting your head around how to use social media for your business etc etc.... the list is actually endless.  And yep, each new year, I get caught up in the "I really should attend / participate..." mentality and then when I don't make the effort feel pretty lousy! This year, I did something different.......

New Year Tips for Rural Australia

When is your "New Year"? 
You need to work out when your "New Year" is.  If you listen / read all the hype around January each year it's definitely January! However, our recent Twitter discussion highlighted, it is not January for all.  It can be seasonal.  In fact you may have a few "New Years" in one calendar year. The best thing is to find your "New Year".  I reckon this might be a pretty challenging concept to fully sink in, but from what our Twitter followers tell us it makes perfect sense for rural Australia and I'm not going to argue with them. 
Key tips for your "New Year".
And the result of our Twitter discussion is a whole list of real life / real time tips from real people!  The beauty here is that these tips work for a new year, a new season, a project, a goal or a change that you want to make.  It's all about consciously setting your plan/s in place.  Hoping these tips might help. And a special thanks for all who shared them, you will see who they are in the article. Lets find out what they are....

A Simple Meditation Technique

Meditation or "dhyana" is a form of concentration. It allows your mind to to focus on one thing and to detach from what's going on in the world around you.  Its like finding a safe place in the eye of a storm.  And when practised regularly it can contribute to the relief of stress and anxiety - things which build up in all of us over time. Let's face it, not a day goes by when we don't feel some sort of stress, so to be able to pause for a few minutes each day and sit in stillness has to have benefits.  Benefits Research tells us that regular meditation creates a calmer person, decreases feelings of anger, supports our nervous system, helps us sleep better, regulates our emotions and helps us to develop greater concentration.  With all these benefits, who wouldn't want to give it a go. We include meditation as part of all the Leadership Programs we develop - YES right alongside topics such as communicating for success, developing your brand, dealing with difficult people etc etc and people love it!  Here is a simple meditation technique for you to try, love to hear how it goes for you.....
