THE WELLNESS WEDNESDAY SHOW - ALCOHOLISM

On this weeks Solihull Radio The Wellness Wednesday show Caroline Gibbs shared her experience with alcoholism.

TOOL #21 KINDNESS - NEVER FAILS

A WOW moment happened last night... 🤩I was in a local restaurant celebrating my friends special birthday with a large group. A lady who I have never met before approached me at the table and asked if I was Ali who wrote My Wellness Toolbox.

I came across this Tool #11 affirmation alongside these questions yesterday. It’s a powerful one.... and just answering the questions gave me a warm fuzzy feeling 🤗This could actually be a good affirmation to use if you are not actually feeling the love right now or have fallen out with a loved one... and answering the questions may just make you feel more positive about the love that is in your life!! We are all surrounded by it, sometimes we just have to look a little harder to realise ❤️#1 How do you feel, when you are surrounded by love.#2...
