St Patrick’s Day Special | Ways To Feel Luckier In Life

Happy St Patrick’s Day!

Do you win at everything in life…lucky you! Things like picking a winner at Cheltenham Festival horse races today, winning prizes on social media, or always beating everyone at the local pub quiz, doesn’t come naturally to all of us.

It’s true, not all of us can have all the luck. We can’t all win at everything. We all fail at things. But, there are times when we do get lucky. Or, we should feel more lucky for what we have at least! Feeling lucky comes down to your attitude in life and how you perceive the world around you.

They say the Irish have all the luck, but you can too! So, to celebrate St Paddy’s Day (aside from an Irish jig) we’re going to start being more positive about life and feel lucky. How? Try our 3 top tips…

3 Ways to feel luckier in life

1 | Act on opportunities

Acting on opportunities and being curious will help open doors and give you a fresh perspective on things. The first step is to recognise that you have opportunities all around you and believe that the people, places, and situations around you could lead to something bigger.

The next step is to open up to meeting new people too! Lucky people smile and engage with anyone and open up to chance meetings that can develop into great relationships.

2 | Focus on the positive

One reason we always feel unlucky is that we focus on too many negatives in our lives and in ourselves. This trap of self-loathing can be addictive but in the long term can be seriously harmful to our mental wellbeing.

Instead, to reduce negative thoughts and stress start writing just one positive thing about yourself and your life every day. By the end of the month, you’ll have at least 28-31 fabulous reasons to feel luckier about who you are and what you have.

3 | Focus on the future you

When it comes to weight loss, thinking about the future you can encourage you to keep going. When you’ve reached your goal weight you’ll feel so grateful and lucky that you made the positive change in your life!

Feeling lucky today? Why not make that positive change now by looking at our diet options. You can choose from Total Solution which is our popular choice to slim down for summer, or our Flexi Solution which is a more flexible approach to dieting.

Here’s a selection of products from our plans, which includes the delicious and low-calorie Irish Cream Shake.

More ways you can feel luckier in your weight loss journey:

  • Surround yourself with positive people who can help you through your weight loss journey.
  • Plant positive seeds into your mind every day – you are doing great!
  • Fight overthinking – we’re talking about body image and food cravings.
  • Accept that you and others have imperfections – we’re not all perfect.
  • Focus on your long-term weight loss goals, not immediate plans
  • Believe in yourself more!

Have a lucky St Paddy’s Day everyone!
