Groovy Monday seems to have arrived very fast.

Five mums shared their thoughts on taking positive steps to change their lives last week. Do check out their stories and leave a supportive comment – that’s how Groovy Mums works best.

I have looked at the 5 ways to well being and can report as follows.

1. Connect – I have looked the world in the eye more especially on the school run where I find cliques very intimidating. I have managed to chat and laugh a little with mums. For me, this is very groovy.

2. Be active – I am incorporating more walking into my day. I also tried a little yoga at the weekend. I am going to commit to doing some exercise straight after the school run every day. I think that will work best.

3. Take notice – It is vital to count our blessings. I have tried to savour moments more particularly cuddles with the children.

4. Keep learning – I have not done enough on this front. I need to read more and to write more. As a wonderful woman told me even putting 20 minutes aside a day to write that novel could pay dividends in the long-term.

5. Give – I have a very groovy giveaway for you this week in association with the British Heart Foundation. It will appear today or tomorrow at the latest.

So my groovy challenges for you this week are ..

1. Speak to somebody new

2. Look into how you can incorporate exercise into your daily routine

3. Savour the moment letting go or what was or what might be.

4. Visit your library and see what learning opportunities exist in your area

5. Enter my Groovy Giveaway and Ramp Up the Red.

Blog about how you are taking steps to change your life for the better in ways large or small and link up. Visit the other entries on the linky and offer your support.

In other news, my husband has a job offer that might take us in a very groovy direction indeed. I sense we are at a very interesting crossroads right now.

Are you a mum who wants to make changes in your life?

You might know exactly what you want to do.  You might have a few ideas that you would like to investigate further. You may be feeling a bit down and just sense that there must be more to life that what you have currently.

Groovy Mums can help!

Groovy Mums does not tell you what to wish for.  You are a very special individual (whether you currently feel that way or not).  You are unique with your own hopes, dreams and aspirations even if they appear faint right now.

Groovy Mums is tried and tested – it has helped people before.  There is no reason it can’t help you too.  It is a sign of strength to say that you could actually do with a bit of support and the input of other mums as you move forwards.

So how does it work?

Write a blog post about what your life is like now and more vitally how you would like it to change.  Don’t allow negative self-talk! Dream your wildest dreams.  You never know. What makes you so all-powerful that you just know things won’t work out?

It does not matter what the dream is.  When I started Groovy Mums years ago, going for a walk every day felt impossible as I was so low.  If you had said then that the journey would eventually see me crossing the Atlantic and working for BritMums I would have told you that you were mad.  Incredibly positive things can and do happen every day.  For some people that will be about going out a little bit more.  For others it will be about volunteering, employment, business, study or hobbies..  For all Groovy Mums, it will be about changing their own world.

I have realised that getting groovy is an ongoing journey and that it is important to celebrate every baby step as well as the bigger achievements.

Link up your blog post below or leave a comment telling me where to find it.  I will then promote it via my social networks and we can connect on Twitter using hashtag #groovymums

Don’t stress about getting the post “right” – just write it!

You may well be amazed at the amount of ideas, tips and support coming your way.

We will be holding regular Twitter parties too.  What times are best for that do you think?

Let’s get groovy!
