Here at A Lovely Year I provide gentle strategies and personalised support to help you bring balance to your daily life – so you have time and energy for yourself and the things that bring you joy.
Imagine your life one year from now. How would you like your life to look? How would you like to feel? What would you like to have achieved?
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to look back on a lovely year spent enjoying your days, fulfilling your goals, tackling your challenges and feeling accomplished. And then look forward with anticipation and excitement to the year ahead.
I can help you get there.
I can help you find balance, calm and joy in your daily life.
I’ll show you how you can stop feeling overwhelmed and busy with “stuff” – so you have time for yourself, and the things that bring you joy.
Who am I?
Hmm…well THAT’S a question I’ve been asking myself for the last 40 years or so…😊
My name is Liann, and I’m a certified life and well-being coach, and mindfulness practitioner.
I’m also a mum who loves chocolate, books (ex-librarian here📚) and hygge (all year round!)
I’m an Obliger (Gretchen Rubin’s Four Tendencies) and an ISFJ-T (16 Personalities)
I LOVE to travel and explore new places (Japan is my favourite country to visit so far, closely followed by Norway…)
And I love ALL the seasons.
I grew up in New Zealand and Australia and now live in Scotland with my husband and son. One of my favourite things about living in the UK is experiencing the seasons. I love how each season is distinct, with its own sights, sounds and feeling.
As I’ve grown older I’ve noticed how the days, months and years have started to speed up – how sometimes it feels as though they all blend together. And how they become filled with a seemingly never-ending list of things to do.
I’ve realised just how important it is to use time well – to be intentional. I’ve learnt that it’s little moments that matter.
I’ve discovered how important it is to focus on and celebrate the simple moments.
Because all those lovely moments add up to create a lovely year.
