With so many people in the world in need of moral support, I want to ask you a favour… to make a difference to someone’s life. Whether it’s someone you know really well or someone you meet today, reach out and find a way to help them. Why? Because there is no greater gift than the gift of giving…
How can you help? The list is endless but here are a few suggestions:
- Send someone a card to say ‘hi’ just because it’s been a while and add a sincere message about thinking of them
- Give someone a call and have a meaningful catch-up
- Find a local community group that could do with some help and where you can take your skills to make a difference; baking, decorating, talking with elderly residents, youth centres, soup kitchen
- Offer to help out at your children’s school (if applicable of course!)
- Fundraising effort – choose a cause that is close to your heart, something that will make you feel thankful that you can help in some way.
- Say hello to someone you don’t know and seal it with a big smile. You don’t need a response, you just need to give and let your confidence shine…
- Tell your loved ones how much you love them and tell them at least one reason why
Giving has never been easier!

A catalyst for change, Yvonne Bignall is a breath of fresh air in the extraordinary way she helps women 50+ to reconnect with life & their innate power through radical self-care, guilt-free!
She supports, encourages, and inspires women to prioritise their health, one bitesize action at a time. Her work is challenging as it navigates through difficult conversations, listening & observing how women’s health issues have been:
❊ Under-resourced &
❊ Swept under the carpet
She helps women to recognise & unpack old scripts that still (sadly enough) tell them that their value derives from their level of caregiving of others, their output. The truth is it is the input, the ability to resource self, which provides women with the energy required to realise their true potential.
Along with her team, she explores the thoughts, behaviour & habits, often born out of guilt, gender expectations, and reinforced narratives, with curiosity (not judgment), discarding the unhelpful, whilst reclaiming innate power through the creation of new patterns, restoring a sense of self, outside of societal expectations. In her opinion, this allows women to:
✔ Develop an elevated level of self-awareness
✔ Build / rebuild their confidence & self-belief
✔ Value all of who they are and invest time in who they want to be at their best
A self-care warrior, an encourager & inspirer, Yvonne is today an award-winning Women’s Health Advocate, Published Author, and an International Presenter. She is also a Radio Show Host and a Podcaster.
Yvonne is focused on building a community of women, www.PermissionToThrive.online, who are ready to reclaim their right to self-care, guilt-free, and who prioritise their health without apology, role-modeling behaviour & habits that inform generations to come of their true value.
She also advocates for self-care over burnout in the workplace, delivering practical webinars in the corporate space. In her own words, “It is time for employees to prioritise their wellbeing. How will they deliver their best work without it?”
One of her favourite quotes comes from Eleanor Brown, ‘Rest and self-care are so important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel’

It’s always nice to write someone an old fashioned handwritten letter to touch base or tell someone how much you care about them. The personal touch will go a long way and I guarantee it will be a big surprise!
Well said Norma!
