Having recently experienced the stress and anguish of making a 999 call for medical assistance, thoughts have been revolving around in my head about the value of life, this gift that is all too often taken for granted.
Every day can become a carbon copy of the previous day, a worn out record of repeated activities that do not add value or bring joy – Groundhog Day. Too many people live life this way, never realising they have the potential to change it, the power to live a better quality of life.
And it’s not even about attempting to do 1000 things per day in the hope that you’ve left no stone unturned. Yes, have life goals but also know there is something very special in being able to sit still and just be.
More important than becoming a ‘busy bee’ is knowing you have used your time wisely, appreciated and shared your talent(s), inspiring others to do the same & felt the greatness of what it is to be happy.
Value your life, it is the only one you have and it truly is a gift… enjoy it.
“This day is all that is good and fair. It is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on the yesterdays.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
“How you think about a problem is more important than the problem itself. So always think positively.” ~ Norman Vincent Peale

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’
