Today's flower is the RED TULIP, which is symbolic of LOVE.
Today we would like to encourage you to choose Love over Fear.

It is often said that when we are faced with any kind of challenge, the only two ways we can choose to respond are with love, or with fear.

Responding to a challenge with fear might look like judgement, blame, defensiveness, criticism, fight, flight or freeze.
Responding with love might look like compassion, empathy, generosity, warmth, understanding or acceptance.

When you are faced with a challenge this weekend, make it your mission to respond with Love over Fear. 💚Team F&S🕊️

Today's plant symbolizes THOUGHTFULNESS, and earlier today we talked about how important it is to demonstrate emotional intelligence by considering the experiences of those around us.
The other thing we would like to touch on today is how important it is to regulate our thoughts and notice when unhelpful or intrusive thoughts arise.

They say "thoughts become things", and it can often be the case - not that we are necessarily manifesting our reality, but that we notice more of what we focus on. If, for example, you focused on red cars, you would automatically begin to notice more red cars on the roads. It doesn't mean that more have appeared, it just means that because you have thought about them specifically they are at the forefront of your mind.

Pay attention to your thoughts tonight and notice if you are focused specifically on something negative or distressing. If you find that you are, acknowledge the thoughts and choose more helpful thoughts so you can notice more of the good things instead. 💚Team F&S🕊️

The kinder and more thoughtful a person is, the more kindness they can find in other people." - Leo Tolstoy ...

Today's plant is the PANSY and it is the symbol of being THOUGHTFUL.

Thoughtfulness and kindness go hand in hand with emotional intelligence. Often when we are going through a difficult season with someone else, our thoughts are primarily on ourselves. We think only about how things affect of us, but when we are in the thick of a tough time we rarely think of how it also affects the other person.

Today we challenge you to think of any difficult or awkward situation you may be experiencing with another person, and instead of automatically thinking about how it is affecting you, take a moment to reach out to them and make an effort to understand their experience. You never know, you might learn something that changes everything! 💚Team F&S🕊️

"The most fantastic, magical things can happen. And it all starts with a wish." - Jiminy Cricket ...

Today's plant symbolizes GOOD WISHES.

While it's wonderful to wish good things for others, it's also important (even as adults!) to make good wishes for yourself.
When was the last time you visualized what you want your future to look like? Our mind is so powerful, and the first step of bringing something to fruition is to first thinking about it, visualizing it and imagining it to be real.
Many successful people use visualization as a tool to help them succeed - from athletes to actors to high performing business people. If you get clear on exactly what you want and how you would like it to play out, you are one step closer to actually bringing it into your reality.

Take some time to think of a dream you would like to make happen. Sit in a quiet spot and conjure it up in your mind, filling in as many details as you can. And if you'd like to, let us know what you're dreaming of in the comments! 💚Team F&S🕊️

Today's flower is the CHAMOMILE, which symbolizes ENERGY IN ADVERSITY.

We don't think it's any coincidence that chamomile can help soothe aches and pains, combat insomnia and boost your immune system - talk about positive effects!

Earlier we discussed the importance of creating positive energy for yourself, and keeping the momentum flowing by focusing on the positive aspects of situations.
If you are starting to feel the negative affects of facing adversity, why not take a moment for yourself and have a cup of chamomile tea? That way you can both experience its benefits, and use the time as a mental reset button to refocus your energy. 💚Team F&S🕊️

"In times of great stress or adversity, it is always best to keep busy, to plow your anger and your energy into something positive." - Lee Iacocca ...

16 1

Today's flower symbolizes ENERGY IN ADVERSITY, so today we want to talk about how critical your focus is to your energy, because WHERE FOCUS GOES ENERGY FLOWS.

First of all, you need to create positive energy. Creating positive energy might look like meditating in the morning, doing a workout, jumping on a trampoline, doing a breathing exercise, or just dancing around your living room to your favourite song. We create positive energy by doing things that make us feel good.

After we have created our positive energy we need to create momentum, and we do that by paying attention to what we focus on! Have you ever noticed how easy it is to get knocked out of a good mood simply by focusing on the negative in a situation?
When you focus on something negative it creates negative energy in your body, which can literally take hours to clear. On the flip side, if you choose to consistently find the positive in situations that could otherwise be upsetting, you'll keep up that positive momentum and feel better for longer.

Don't forget, WHERE FOCUS GOES ENERGY FLOWS, so pay particular attention to your energy today, and even when you're facing adversity make sure your focus stays on the good stuff. 💚Team F&S🕊️

Today's plant is the HYSSOP, which represents SACRIFICE.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Earlier today we encouraged you to think about the changes you might like to see in your life, and think about what you may need to sacrifice in order to make that happen. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Maybe that means getting up an hour early to go to the gym, work on your latest project or meditate. It might look like reducing your portion sizes in order to improve your health, or sacrificing an hour of Netflix to spend time with talking with your partner.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Remember time is the greatest equalizer - every single person has the exact same amount of hours in a day!⁣⁣

Today's plant represents SACRIFICE, and this is such a relevant subject when we talk about changing up our lives, making improvements or going on a journey of personal development.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Often people would like to make positive changes in their lives, but are not ready to let go of the things that got them there in the first place.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
This can look like wanting to improve relationships, but not wanting to change their negative patterns when it comes to how they express their emotions; it can look like wanting to improve their health but not wanting to let go of their addictions or vices; It can even look like holding onto beliefs that make them feel comfortable even when at the same time these beliefs are not allowing them to grow.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Have a think today about the changes you would like to make in your own life, and think about what that may mean letting go of. Make a pro and con list if you need to, and remember to keep in mind that change requires change, because if nothing changes, well, nothing changes!⁣⁣

"Wisdom is the power to put our time and our knowledge to proper use." - Thomas Watson ...

8 1

The SAGE plant is symbolic of WISDOM - which is sensible, because to be "sage" literally means to be wise! Wisdom can also be defined as "the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgement." You know how they say "knowledge is power"? Well we disagree. As Tony Robbins says, knowledge is POTENTIAL power. Knowledge doesn't have much value unless you use it to inform your actions, and exercise the good judgement that also helps to define wisdom.
How often do we KNOW the right thing to do, but just not do it?

We know how to eat the right foods to give us energy, we know we should have good sleeping patterns, we know what makes us feel good and what doesn't - but how often do we actually act on that knowledge?

Today we challenge you to do a little stock-take on your life, and think about some ways you could show a little more WISDOM, and let your knowledge and good judgement result in the follow-through of some better choices! 💚Team F&S🕊️

The flower that represents HONESTY is the CHRYSANTHEMUM, and what a gorgeous flower it is. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Earlier we encouraged you to think about an area of your life that could use a little more honesty - and now we're going to talk about why.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Everyone knows how damaging it can be to keep an unhealthy secret - it can sap your energy and cause a lot of stress. This includes secrets we keep from others, as well as information about ourselves we keep close to our chests. The emotions that cause us to keep secrets are the same emotions that are multiplied by keeping them - feelings like shame, guilt and regret. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Often when people are finally open and honest with themselves and those they love, they report experiencing positive feelings such as freedom, relief and acceptance.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We know which feelings we'd prefer!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Humans aren't made to bottle things up - it is literally detrimental to our physical and mental well-being. So why not try opening up and being honest - either to your loved ones, friends and family, a support group, or a qualified Psychologist or AMHSW? It might be the only thing standing between you and those good feelings!⁣⁣

BE HONEST.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It really should be that simple!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Honesty is the foundation of all relationships, including the relationship we have with ourselves. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Do you have an area of your life where you aren't being completely honest? Perhaps you are sticking your head in the sand when it comes to your finances, holding back from telling someone how you feel, or feeling stuck because you know the truth of what you want but aren't sure how to get there.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Today we encourage you to think about opening up and being honest with whoever you need to be honest with - but doing it with kindness. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
If you are nervous about having an honest conversation, think about the most sensitive way to approach it instead of just letting it all boil over. If you need an expert to help you take stock of a situation, make a time to go and see them. And if you need help being honest with yourself - well, you know who to call 😉⁣⁣

The flower of READINESS is VALERIAN!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Today we asked you to think about what you do to get ready for your day - to get ready for your LIFE - because if you aim to live your life in a state of readiness, you will always be ready when opportunity comes knocking.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Many people spend a great deal of time "getting ready" for occasions - losing weight to "get ready" for an event or holiday, or cramming information to "get ready" for a test or exam - but what if "getting ready" was more about the little things we do every day?⁣⁣
⁣⁣
If you were mindful about what you eat every day, there would be no need to put so much unhealthy effort into crash dieting. If you paid attention to your class every week and did all the homework, you wouldn't experience such a mad panic when exam time comes along. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Often, success can be more attributed to the little things we do every day rather than the big things we do just once.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
So what can you really do to get ready? What little things can you do every day to ensure you are ready to live your best life?⁣⁣
⁣⁣

ARE YOU READY?⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Today's plant, which we will reveal to you later, symbolizes READINESS.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
If you saw today's quote by Henry Ford, he said that "getting ready is the secret of success." We take that to mean that if you exist in a state of readiness, you'll be good to go when the right opportunity comes along. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
So what do you do to Get Ready for life?⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Do you have a morning routine? ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We highly recommend starting your day by doing a couple of things that set your day up for success. Our receptionist Claire likes to start her day off with some breath work, a meditation and visualization exercise, 15 minutes of movement and a healthy smoothie to set her up well for the day. ⁣⁣

For our last prompt for today we are encouraging you to RESPECT YOURSELF.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Do you treat your body in a respectful way?⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Do you respect your own self-esteem by keeping your word to yourself?⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Do you respect your mental health by taking time for yourself?⁣⁣
⁣⁣
As today is World Mental Health Day, we want to remind you that it's important to ask yourself what small action you can take to show a little love and respect for yourself. For some people it might be getting out of bed in the morning, others it might be taking a shower, others it might be making the bed, getting dressed, eating a healthy breakfast - or it might simply look like booking in with your GP to get a Mental Health Care Plan, or taking the step to call and make an appointment with a psychologist.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Our Team at Felix & Sage Psychology would love to support you through your journey toward self compassion and respect, so call us on 03 8813 0590 if you'd like to book in for an appointment. ⁣⁣

Today's flower is the IRIS, and the Iris represents RESPECT.⁣

First of all today, we would like you to think about how you show respect to other people. In the quote we posted earlier today, it said "Respect for others guides our manners."⁣

Are you the sort of person who takes other into account? Or do you just move to the beat of your own drum?⁣

Do you show gratitude for the people you come across in your day to day life? The waitress who brings you your coffee? The assistant who helps you when the self-serve checkout stuffs up? The person who lets you in in traffic? Or do you just think "It's their job" or "I had right of way"?⁣

Tonight we encourage you to use your manners to show respect to the people who play a small role in your day to day life, and see if it improves your mood!⁣

💚Team F&S🕊️⁣

Today we've been talking about ADORATION, and we suggested that if you deeply love and respect someone you should let them know!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
If you have a friend or family member that's been having a tough time lately, why not write them a card or letter to tell them how much you adore them? ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Mail is so rare to receive these days, but it's a beautiful way to express your feelings to someone so they can keep it and revisit it when they need a boost. ⁣⁣

Today's plant is the beautiful SUNFLOWER, which is the symbol of ADORATION. On the flip-side they can also symbolize FALSE RICHES. We think these two meanings tie in together nicely, and here's why.

Adoration means "deep love and respect", which of course is beautiful - but what is the point of feeling these feelings for someone if you don't share them? What is the point of adoring someone unless they know they're adored? Is there any value there?
In this age of social media we often adore others from afar. We might like a photo of their achievement, or read something they've written and think "Amazing!", or even see their progress or success in real life but never actually express to them how well we think they are doing or how much we care for them.

Can you think of someone who has impressed you lately?
Have you let them know?
If not, today is the day to do so!
Tag someone you adore below! 💕 💚Team F&S🕊️

Today's plant is symbolic of USEFULNESS.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We often associate the word 'useful' with external things like appliances, tools and so forth. If they're useful and they help us to accomplish something we keep them around, but if we deem these things no longer useful we get rid of them. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Sometimes we hold on to things that are no longer useful because they are associated with good memories, but often if something is associated with a painful memory we ditch it without fuss.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
When was the last time you applied this practical approach to your brain?⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Have you ever taken stock of your thoughts and beliefs and asked "is this useful to me"? ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Many of us have old beliefs and stories we have held onto for a long time that are no longer serving us; thoughts like "I'm just unlucky", "this always happens to me" or "all the good ones are taken". ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Pay attention to your thoughts today, and the next time you think a thought like this ask yourself whether or not it is useful, or whether it might be time to throw it away and replace it with something new. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣
We'd like you to have a think today about the love in your life - the love you have for yourself, your family, your partner if you have one - and bring to mind the good times you've had, and the things that have made you feel the most excited and alive in those relationships. Get those memories bubbling along tonight and we'll issue you a challenge in a couple of hours!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Got a memory you want to share in the meantime? Pop it in the comments!⁣⁣

Did you know that humans have a negativity bias?⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
This means that we unconsciously pay more attention to negativity than positivity in our lives and let it outweigh the good things, because our nervous systems are still hardwired to constantly look out for threats to our life.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
No wonder we are always so stressed!⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
Our Team F&S challenge to you is to "Look for the Lovely" in your day today. Make a point of paying attention to all the beautiful gestures, sights, smells, tastes and sounds you come across today, and stop to enjoy it in the moment. Make a mental note of everything that makes you feel good, and if any negativity creeps in, remember how you felt in a lovely moment. See if it helps your emotional state! And if you happen across anything lovely you want to share, pop it in the comments below.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

To desire is to strongly wish for or want something.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Today we are asking you, what is your heart's deepest desire?⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
If you could do ANYTHING, what would it be?⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Think about this as you go about your day today, and you will be one step closer to it. As Dr Joe Dispenza says, even thinking about it begins to change your brain!⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
If you want to take it a step further and make your desire a declaration, please do so in the comments below - and while you're there, let us know which flower you think might symbolize desire!⁣⁣
