Hello, I’m Felicity!

I’m a satisfaction expert and yoga teacher who is here to empower you to live your happiest, healthiest and most satisfied life. I’ve been where you are. I was living a seemingly happy life of pleasure, but I didn’t feel fulfilled. My life was full of fun but felt empty. I couldn’t put my finger on what was wrong. It was like when you have a stone in your shoe – you can try to ignore it but every now and then it niggles again.

Because “Life is ok” is not good enough!

Despite feeling a deep affinity to the word ‘happiness’, I started to realise that it didn’t truly represent the way I wanted myself and my clients to feel. I had been searching for a deeper kind of happiness, one that both embraced the joy of the present moment and the desire for a better life and a better world. ‘Contentment’ implied a sense of just accepting the world as it is without feeling that anything can change. ‘Fulfilment’ came close but lacked punch. Instead, ‘Satisfaction’ was the word that ticked the boxes and that seemed to sum up everything that I had been learning and implementing.

I passionately believe that the world is not working. Or more to the point it IS working, but not in a way that works. We have created a society where it is expected that we slog away for hours / days / months in a job that doesn’t fulfil us and / or causes us great stress and anxiety. In return, we get just a couple of days rest a week. But these two days “rest” are no longer restful. We’ve been conditioned to believe we should always be doing something or being somewhere. And this is not even bearing in mind the maintenance of our lives outside of work – cleaning, cooking, looking after children, house-keeping…

We find ourselves close to burn out and desperate to “get away from it all” on our two weeks on a beach. But wouldn’t it be better for life to bring us satisfaction every day? Why should we wait until the weekend / the summer holiday / retirement for a taste of joy and happiness?

You should wake up in the morning looking forward to your day. Feeling motivated about your role in society and your place in the world, ready to take on whatever life throws at you. To feel organised and prepared for what lies ahead. And to feel resilient and flexible enough to respond to any curveballs that come your way.

You should go to sleep feeling like you’ve had a good day. To know that you have made the best of the time that was available to you. To feel grateful for the opportunity of life. To have found some joys in your present moments throughout the day. And knowing that there is nothing you can do about tomorrow until you are rested.

You should have the opportunity to reach your full potential in life. I believe everyone has the potential to change the world with a few small but radical changes. I know there are so many people out there who have a moan about the news or on social media but don’t know how or what to do themselves. Almost everyone thinks “what can little old me do?” You should feel empowered and inspired to be the best person you can be and to really make an impact, even in a small way.

You should experience a state of contented calmness in life. To accept that there is no perfect and that, sometimes, that’s ok. In fact, most of the time that’s ok! To accept that there are things that cannot be changed and that there is nothing to be gained from ruminating over them. To be able to appreciate and savour the amazing things that are in your life and to gain joy from the journey.

The Elements of Satisfaction

My Felisophy of Satisfaction is based around four elements of satisfaction. These can be applied to all aspects of our life; home, work, family, hobbies, health, friends.

Find Your Focus

Earth / Winter

The earth element is all about building great foundations. Routines, rest and resilience. Good routines and planning are the essential bones that hold our life together in good times and bad. Being in control of our time also means knowing our personal boundaries and when to say ‘no’.

This is also about learning all the techniques that work for us best when we come up against unexpected stress, anxiety, and even trauma. Some people like to meditate, some find expressive writing useful, and others might prefer to exercise or talk to a friend. Whatever our healthy stress relievers are, it’s important we put those good habits in place when life is easy, so those habits are easy to return to when life is hard.

Find Your Fire

Fire / Spring

A sense of meaning and purpose has been intrinsic to models of happiness dating back to Aristotle. It’s not enough just to make ourselves happy. Contributing to society provides far more longevity in our happiness. And generosity is scientifically proven to make us happier.

From a very young age, we are brought up to run on the hedonic treadmill, always chasing after the next short-term material possession that we’ll inevitably get bored of, before chasing another. And another and another…

We also need to know what we’re good at. Working to our strengths helps us achieve our purpose, leading to far greater life satisfaction.

Find Your Flow

Water / Summer

You know when you are so engrossed in a task, that time just flies by? This is Flow, a concept developed by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. It’s that perfect match of the skills we have and with the challenge before us, and is considered the ultimate human experience. What could be more satisfying than that?

The watery element of Find your flow also encompasses other aspects of living in the moment. Accepting our situation, others and ourselves. Being grateful for all of the good things in our lives (and sometimes the bad things, too). Savouring every moment so that life fills us with awe, wonder and satisfaction every single day.

Find Your Self

Air / Autumn

As we move into the air element, things get more rarefied and difficult to pin down. But having a strong sense of self is really important in us knowing how we fit into the world. My study of yoga philosophy helps me to connect with the rest of the universe, and feel less attached to my individuality. But, I am also keenly aware that we live in a world of the individual, and that I can determine the identity that I want others to see.

Finding ourselves within the context of others is key. Tuning into our natural human impulses of compassion, and connecting to others and our environment. Seeing how others shape and influence how we see ourselves and reclaiming our own perception of our Self. And finally, looking after that Self with true self-care.
