Reach out & Touch… this has been the most emotionally challenging period in my life.
I recently lost my father; he was and remains my hero, a loving dad & grandad and a devoted husband. What a heart wrenching, mind numbing time. There have been days when my heart felt as if it was physically breaking, moments of crying so hard my face ached.
I accept that that’s what happens when you lose someone significant in your life…
Fortunately, I have a tight knit community of family & friends and we support each other in a way that exceeds the norm; for this, I am truly grateful.
But here’s the thing that has been floating around in my mind for the past week … what happens to people who don’t have that inner circle? When they lose someone special and have no family to turn to or share their pain with; what happens to them?
Reach out and touch is about realising there are people around us with no inner circle and that we, as caring compassionate human beings, should seek to notice them, speak to them and support them; we are, after all, all connected.
Every day we can make a difference, not only in our lives but in the lives of others. Reach out and touch, shine some light into what might be a dark and bleak time for someone around you…
And Live Blissfully,

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’
