    Relaxamation - I Am Whole, Healthy & Complete

    Relaxamation - I Am Whole, Healthy & Complete

    Quit hiding your magic! You are UNIQUE, you are the only one like you. You have one of a kind fingerprints, not even identical twins have matching ones. You are the outcome of one egg and around 40 million sperm, any other sperm and you would be a different you. You are the only one to see colours the way you do. 
    Remember not to compare yourself with others as there is no comparison. And anyway, you would be matching their outsides (what you see) with your insides (with what you think and feel).
    The same goes for our health and our life in general. Even if we are feeling broken, we can live with health issues but still be healthy in mind and body. We can still live our lives happy. It really does help to remind yourself that you are good enough and that you are whole, healthy and complete.

    Do not listen to this episode while driving or operating machinery.
    Your affirmations:
    I am whole, healthy and completeI am enough just as I amMy completeness is my very natureSay your affirmations 5 times each as a set. Repeat your set of affirmations at least once a day.
    The more you use them the bigger the impact. Add them to a habit that you do every day.  While cleaning your teeth, driving, running, walking your dog, washing the dishes, when you first wake up or the last thing at night.

    Your self-reflection questions are:
    What are my three greatest qualities?What is unique about me?In what ways do I hold myself back? Why, do I hold myself back?Use these reflection questions to delve a little deeper and get to know yourself better. You can use them as prompts for journaling, during meditation or just give yourself a few moments of time to consider.

    Fatigue management tips when you have a heart health diagnosis

    Fatigue management tips when you have a heart health diagnosis

    This week I am talking more about "how-to" live life with fatigue and minimise the impact. I talk through more tools, rules and ideas to help you manage fatigue and conserve your energy.

    Here are some of the topics I discuss in this episode.


    Sleep - whilst it doesn't get rid of fatigue is a good place to start. It means you only have to deal with the fatigue and not tiredness too. Nutrition - keep hydrated and an even blood sugar level if you can. Being safe when travelling - that means you and other people too.Self-awareness - get to know yourself and what helps, tame that voice that tells you stuff that doesn't serve you well.Lifestyle - move around, despite being counterintuitive it will help especially if you're outside with nature.Loving and respecting your body - fatigue management it's the only way!

    Relaxamation - Forgiveness Is A Gift

    Relaxamation - Forgiveness Is A Gift

    For a full understanding of what my relaxamations are make sure you catch up with my episode called Relaxamations to relax and energise when living with heart disease, you can read or listen to me explaining it. In a nutshell, though, relaxamations are a blend of all of the best bits of meditation, guided relaxation, mindfulness and positive affirmations.

    Imagine this: If you had $86,400 in an account and someone stole $10 from you, would you be upset and throw all of the remaining $86,390 away in hopes of getting back at the person who took your $10? Or move on and live? Right, move on and live. See, we have 86,400 seconds each day. Don’t let someone’s negative 10 seconds ruin the remaining 86,390. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Life is bigger than that. (unknown)

    Do not listen to this episode while driving or operating machinery.
    Carrying resentment is holding on to negative energy. It is also a bit like taking poison and hoping the other person will die.Forgiving the other doesn’t mean they were right or you were wrong.It empowers you and disempowers them.You can also forgive yourself.Here are your affirmations from today’s relaxamation:
    Forgiveness is a gift I give to myself. Forgiveness is a way of showing strength in myself.By forgiving others, I become free of the past.Say your affirmations 5 times each as a set. Repeat your set of affirmations at least once a day.
    The more you use them the bigger the impact. Add them to a habit that you do every day.  While cleaning your teeth, driving, running, walking your dog, washing the dishes, when you first wake up or the last thing at night.

    Your self-reflection questions are:
    Whom do I need to forgive?What would I gain by forgiving that person?Can I let go of my negative feelings about that person?Use these reflection questions to delve a little deeper and get to know yourself better. You can use them as prompts for journaling, during meditation or just give yourself a few moments of time to consider.

    Relaxamations Explained - The Big Calm & The Feel Good Factor

    Relaxamations Explained - The Big Calm & The Feel Good Factor

    Today I am going to tell you about my relaxamation technique and how it can help you to relax and energise when living with heart disease.


    It is a blend of all of the best bits of meditation, guided relaxation, mindfulness and positive affirmations. It's so exciting to tell you about what a relaxamation is and how it can help. 

    Relaxamations for you to download will be included in my regular mix of podcast episodes so you can gain the benefit at a time and place that is convenient for you. I hope you find this interesting and I look forward to any feedback.

    Having a heart attack, heart surgery, cardiac arrest, when living with A fib or heart failure and heart disease etc, it’s not just your body that is damaged and needs repairing.

    The psychological impact can be massive and life becomes a roller-coaster of ups, downs and unknowns. It is a shock to the system and can be very traumatic.

    By incorporating relaxamations into your life you will relearn the art of relaxation, improve your sleep, reduce stress, feel positive, improve your self-talk and sense of wellbeing. You will also have the opportunity to know yourself better and review your thoughts and feelings relating to the chosen affirmation.

    Fatigue, the What, the Why and the How To Work It Out

    Fatigue, the What, the Why and the How To Work It Out

    I recently asked in my Facebook community how have people been feeling since their cardiac event or diagnosis. The top answers were Fatigue, Sleep Issues, Anxiety and Lack of Motivation.  These I thought would be top topics for me to talk about.

    In this episode, we will be focussing on fatigue.

    • What fatigue feels like.
    • What’s the difference between tiredness and fatigue?
    • Why do we get fatigued, what it is and what causes it?

    You will understand what fatigue is and is not. You will understand what causes it and accept that you are justified in how you feel. You will have some ideas and tools to help you minimise the impact of the physical and emotional effects of fatigue.

    Interview with Sallie Crawley by Brian Simpson, a ruptured Achilles, a heart attack and breast cancer

    Interview with Sallie Crawley by Brian Simpson, a ruptured Achilles, a heart attack and breast cancer

    A few months ago, I invited Brian Simpson, the Heart Attack Thriver to be on my podcast. He turned the tables on me and invited me to be his guest on his IGTV show. He kindly allowed me to use the audio to share some of my story with you. 
    You’ll get to find out why I think I am so lucky despite having my leg in plaster and having a heart attack. Then 8 weeks later having a cancer diagnosis that couldn’t be operated on as my event was so recent and that I was on ticagrelor (antiplatelet medication). 
    Enough from me right now, over to me a few weeks ago. 
    Here are the links that we mentioned in our conversation:
