Mental Health – Letting go is good for the soul

I am a recovering worrier! Back in the day, I would worry over everything. These days, I am trying my best to stop worrying, to let go and let God. Letting go is good for the soul. It is a lot easier to worry about every tiny little detail but it does nothing for your mental health. Which is why I now make a conscious effort not to worry about anything. Sometimes, it is easier to let go and not worry, and other times it can be a lot harder. But the more I make an effort to not worry about all the issues on this planet, the easier it becomes.

Letting go is good for the soul

Since I started focusing more on my spiritual life and mindfulness. I have realised that a lot of the things we are so worried about will not happen. However, the danger of worrying about issues bring our focus and attention to these issues, which can lead to us manifesting exactly what we are afraid of. Letting go does not mean we should be reckless or ignore what we are supposed to do. It just means we focus our attention on what we have power over and take our attention away from outcomes and the rest.

 

The benefits of letting go

Here are some of the amazing benefits of letting go –

 

You will sleep better

Letting go will help you sleep better at night. Being a worrier means you will likely be up for most of the night worrying about all sorts. Letting go helps you sleep peacefully and soundly, which is great for your overall health.

 

Goodbye to anxiety and depression

This is one of the most important benefits of letting go is that you can wave goodbye to anxiety, depression and other mental health issues. Dwellling on your problems will only make you feel anxious and depressed. However, if you focus on positivity and things within your power, you will find you no longer feel as anxious or depressed. Focusing on what you have power over and positive outcomes means you feel good which is amazing for your wellbeing.

It leads to positive outcomes

Apart from the fact that letting go helps you sleep better and can get rid of some mental health problems, it can also lead to positive outcomes. The law of attraction means you manifest what you focus on. So if you are a worrier and you focus on all your cares and worries, it is likely you bring them into your reality just by focusing on them. Letting it all go and focusing on positive results and positivity in general means you attract just those into your reality.

 

I know how easy it is to worry. Just look at the Brexit mess for example. That is enough to keep many people up at night for various reasons. But being up all night won’t make the deal come quicker for example but it will mess up your body clock which will only make up more miserable. That’s the way I see it.

 

Letting go is good for the soul. How do you let go? Any ideas you want to share with the other readers?

Will UK Fashion Survive Brexit?

fashion-picture

 

The whole world held their breath as they waited for the results of the June 23, 2016 referendum. The outcome was a narrow win in favour of Britain leaving the EU with 52% against 48% of the total votes. This result brought a lot of concern to Britain, and the fashion industry was not left out of it.

The UK fashion industry has been a prime mover in the economy contributing £26billion in 2014 and £28billion in 2015. This industry was also responsible for employing nearly 900,000 workers for jobs spanning from manufacturing to retail.

Although the survey conducted by the British Fashion Council (BFC) states that 90% of the fashion designers planned to vote to remain in EU, the industry will now have to face what’s coming with Brexit.

But does UK fashion have the chance to survive Brexit? I believe there’s a good chance. Here are some of the reasons why I believe the UK fashion will survive Brexit –

  1. The devaluation of the Pound could lead to an increase in sales from foreign buyers

Since the final results of Brexit, the value of the pound took a nose dive. Although this caused a serious panic in the fashion industry, fashion designers saw an increase in the volume of their sales. The reason for this was that the drop in the value of the Pound made the fashion items in Britain appear cheaper to the buyers paying in Euro, Dollars, and other currencies. Thus, tourists in Britain found fashion items more affordable and this encouraged more of them to buy from the British market.

  1. Encouragement of growth in the fashion industry

As more foreign clients from different countries like France, Italy and Hong Kong among others, are buying more fashion items from Britain, there are signs of an increase in the growth of the fashion industry.  Some fashion designers are experiencing an increase in their businesses.

The price difference will definitely be a huge bonus for the British designers, since their price is comparatively more attractive than the prices in other European countries.

However, London will always be known as a fashion capital with talented designers. So even if there were an increase in the price of fashion items in Britain, this will not stop the fashion conscious from owning the latest trendy pieces.

  1. There’ll be a huge boom in online retail with a large foreign client base

With Brexit the common trend seems to be a shift to an increase in foreign patronage, so e-commerce stores that have a majority of clients from countries other than the UK will have a mega boost. Of course, price is the main determining factor in this case.

So will UK fashion survive Brexit? I’m pretty optimistic that the future of UK fashion is bright. And I predict a massive boom in the fashion industry.

My Thoughts on Brexit

brexit

 

I was quite vocal on social media (Twitter) about Brexit. I shared my thoughts with anyone who cared to read and it led to many people unfollowing me because I was not on the popular side of the fence. But I didn’t care. I had strong views that needed to be shared regardless of how unpopular it was. I am usually not interested in politics but I was very interested in Brexit because I knew the future of our children – the next generation, depends on how it swings.

I voted to leave in EU, and I am happy I did. I remember monitoring the results all through the night, only to fall asleep to dream about vote results, lol. It was a crazy period but I am glad it is all settling down now. I won’t go into why I decided to cast my vote to leave EU because I really do not feel like going into it or arguing with anyone on why I choose to believe what I believe. I don’t need to explain the reasons behind my votes and you shouldn’t either. I believe we all have the right to think for ourselves and follow our gut instincts. When it came to Brexit, it didn’t make sense in my head for the UK to leave the EU, with all the crazy/scary predictions around, but it made sense in my gut, and when it comes to my head or gut, I will always go with my gut instinct – it has never failed me.

The Cash Lady Infographic below features some of the worst Brexit predictions about possible financial outcomes of UK leaving the EU. I don’t see any of these happening by the way –

Some of these predictions are so funny but then again I am not surprised they are. I read even more shocking predictions before the results were announced. I hope these predictions don’t come through (I know they won’t), and I hope to see a stronger UK in a year’s time. I am keeping my eyes and ears on the Brexit news so I know what is going on. I can’t believe how adult I have become with my sudden interest in politics.
