In Part Two of our Mini Series with Millie Elder-Holmes, Grace and Millie talk about Moana, Thailand and how to rid yourself of negative energy
What about retreats do you enjoy – and why would you recommend them to
I have never done a retreat in my life I was never really into that
sort of thing until I got a bit older, and now I research them a lot,
I will be hosting my first ever retreat in Thailand this November, so
that’s super exciting, we have a nice group of women coming a long
and some extra spaces still open so I’m really looking forward to
What do you do to chill out when you’re feeling stressed?
Usually if I’m very stressed I sleep, but if something is stressing
me so much and my mind is too busy to sleep I need to either cook or
doing something with my hands. Usually I just cook, cooking has been a
huge asset for me in my life, and for me it’s extremely therapeutic.
Do you have a book or movie you like to watch/read to calm down and
have some time to yourself, if so what is that movie or book?
I don’t usually use books or movies to calm down, but when I was
trying to get over my jet lag the past few days I have spent a lot of
time on Netflix, I’ve been enjoying Riverdale, and Reign, and
Vikings, and I also love Disney kid’s movies, Moana was next level
How would you define wellbeing?
Wellbeing is a balance between your mental, emotional and physical
wellbeing facilitates and customised by you as an individual, is the
place where you feel in touch with your self, where you actively look
out and care for yourself in all aspects of life in an active way on a
daily basis, I know this sounds like a lot of daily work but it
actually comes naturally to all of us.
You simply need to be aware of
the things that do not add to your life and cull them.
What else do you do to positively effect your wellbeing?
I am extremely ruthless with my self when it comes to negative
thinking, obviously I’m not a Zen master and sometimes my emotions
get the best of me but my biggest accomplishment towards my wellbeing
is understanding others and that when they are nasty and negative to
you this is nothing to do with you but 100% to do with them, my
current mantra is “hurt people hurt people” you need to understand
that you are not for everyone, and that ok. But also just because some
one is different than you or sees things a certain way doesn’t mean
your wrong and they are right, I think as a whole we need to be more
