Youtube videos

Welcome to the YouTube hang out of me, Lucy Sheridan, The Comparison Coach! Subscribe and join the Comparison party, where we bring you fresh videos every Wednesday and Sunday. Don't miss my top viewed videos below.

I am so excited to share this video because, although it has a cosmic angle, it is close to my heart and integral to my life. Why? Because by performing it every New moon and Full moon I give myself the opportunity to check in on if I am living the life I want and can reflect and make changes accordingly.
Modern life can send even the most zen of us into panic and procrastination mode. Today's video is here and will help you crack the code for YOUR focus so YOU are getting more of the-actually-important-things done and delivered.
Do you find yourself saying yes and then regretting it? Caught in social and work situations that are a waste of your time and energy, wondering how you got there? Perhaps you are tired of having to bow to the will or opinion of others. If so this video is the answer to your prayers!

This video is about how to simplify YOUR life and stick to your own path! Please meet me in the comments and tag a chum that could use a wee hug right now.
We've all been there haven't we? I first got Facebook 14 years ago (what?!) and could never have imagined how social media would explode the way it did and how it would affect my life. It's almost impossible to NOT stay in touch or keep tabs on people these days isn't it?!

๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณAll we need is within us, of that we can be sure! ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฑ(Wave your branches at me - itโ€™ll make sense if you watch, I promise!) 

Eleventy trips to the gym a week, a zillion work emails to send and reply to, catching up with friends, being sexy on social media and trying to finish that module you need to submit. Does your life feel so busy sometimes you are one whatsapp away from a multi tasking meltdown?
Pardon the rant ๐Ÿ˜กbut hear me out please๐Ÿ‘‚๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘‚๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘‚๐Ÿฟ... Looking cool. Looking busy. Looking well traveled. Looking like you are an interior designer on the side of your actual job because your house is so perfect. Looking like you're a fashion blogger because you look so on trend every single day.
Do you ever see someone that has or is doing what you want and they seem to have come out of nowhere? Like it's happened easier and quicker for them. Like their shower rains down luck on them rather than water every morning?!
What To Do When Your Friends Unfollow You. It's a minefield that none of us could have expected and yet here we are navigating social media's unchartered waters! We are in danger of seeing other people's behaviour and choices on social media as personal snubs or rejections but we've got it twisted!
Social media, blogging or simply scrolling has brought undue pressure to the role of bringing up little ones. So, whether you are a parent or you know a parent please check out this new video which I hope is a powerful pep talk that will bring calm, confidence and focus to the mums and pops out there, bringing up children in this modern world.
Do you ever feel overlooked or ignored on social media? ๐Ÿ˜Œ We can pour time and care into what we share online and it can feel hurtful when we feel we are not getting back what we are putting out there. I've soooo been there.

Pretty much every success or positive experience I have had or seen is because I have been fiercely committed to staying in my own lane. Pretty much every success or positive experience I have had or seen is because I have been fiercely committed to staying in my own lane. But it isnโ€™t always easy and I often swerve onto a track I should not be on!๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ
One of comparisonโ€™s special skills is taking away our focus so we lose track of our own goals and wants and become obsessed with the green grass of our neighbours๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ˜Œ Itโ€™s insidious and we can lose precious progress and time in the process. Do you want to clear the fog that is clouding you making the moves you want to make? Then you must check out my new video.
And if you needed another reason to watch then youโ€™ll see a sleepy and snuffling Roe (my dog!) in this one :-)

"Calm down", "Get over it", "You are being over sensitive" ... Have you been given feedback on how or what you express? Perhaps your inner mean girl/guy gives you a hard time and makes you feel unsteady and like you can't adult.
I am all for living unapologetically and without needing permission or approval from other people - that is such a place of freedom that I certainly aim for. And yet, there are times when apologies are necessary and amends need be made because of something you have said or done to someone else.

There are A LOT of different influences and sources fighting for our attention when it comes to how to live our love lives. Here I am riffing on the damage that comparing your relationship or its status can do to you. Protect your heart - you only have one! xxx
We are experiencing a unique time as we do our best to handle the effects of the power couple that is social media and technology. So, if you are feeling overwhelmed, wobbly or silly because of feelings of comparison you need to watch this video.
If you need a little giggle I have your back, Boo!
We live in a world where I get style advice by a woman in her seventies and cooking guidance from a lad of about 14 that I don't even speak the same language as. There have never been soooo many examples of any age being the right age to live your life and do your thing.
There's a good chance this is the wake up call you need especially if you have found yourself caught up on the expectations or opinions of others. We need to love many, trust few, always paddle your own canoe and GET ON with LIVING our lives!
Inspired by my post a couple of weeks ago which lit up my DM's ๐Ÿ’Œthe new video in my profile ๐Ÿ“ผshare's my take on How To Say What You Want To Say and, through this, be heard, understood and taken seriously - no apology or 'lol-ings' to rely on!
Success leaves clues so there is nothing wrong with observing the actions and habits of those people that have done what you want to do - that's just good sense, right? I myself have studied - and still pay attention to - the people I admire and have gained bags of inspiration and ideas about my own next steps.
So... You've had the flash of inspiration... You get butterflies of excitement when you even think about your idea... And even though it only lives in your head and imagination at the moment, you have a magical feeling it could come off!
It takes a lot for us to stand up in our corner of the world and do our thing. To start working on an idea or sharing more of your opinions more often. I applaud you for every single step you make on your own journey towards your goals.
Love yourself enough to take your time. I'm not here to be the social media police but can we all be sure to exercise a bit more calm and kindness on our walls at this time of year?
Here's to you! Here's to everything you want and to the change you want to see in the world this year! Here's to clarity, motivation, action, reflection and possibility.
Imagine if something as simple as a word could change not only your year but your outlook and even your life? Well that's a concept I'd love to riff on today. I have chosen a word of the year for the last 5 years and it has been like a magnet for the things I have wanted to experience, co create and call in.
We all deserve a cool Yule (sorry!) So don't let social media mess with your mulled wine and mince pies ;-) In this video are a heap of easy to action tips to keep your mood merry no matter your age!
Christmas can get a bad wrap. There is a lot of focus on stress and how not to have any at the moment, isn't there? But do you remember when this time of year meant FUN, presents and chilled time with those you love the most, free from school or work?
You will often hear me say 'there is beauty in simplicity' and today's video walks you through the perfect way to put that in action to the benefit of those you love the most! When was the last time you took the time and care to give the people most important to you THIS gift?
There is a good chance that you have invites coming out of your ears and most of your evenings and weekends are spoken for. Yep it's the time of year for festive fun but sometimes the 'fun' part of that is hard to find or simply absent.
Do you find yourself saying yes and then regretting it? Caught in social and work situations that are a waste of your time and energy, wondering how you got there? Perhaps you are tired of having to bow to the will or opinion of others. If so this video is the answer to your prayers!

I used to be a compulsive over thinker! Playing over past scenarios like a broken record and stuck in analysis paralysis about what I need to do now and down the line. It's exhausting isn't it? And it's never nice memories or dreamy future scenarios that take over your brain is it?
"Celebrate early and celebrate often". This has been such an important element of my journey to inner peace. Take a look at why this is the missing piece to your manifesting practice right now
Gratitude is the attitude - believe the hype on this game changing habit. That said, what if you are having a bumpy patch or things feel like they are going slowly off the boil? This is where an evidence journal comes in to amp up your appreciation and turbo charge your co-creation.
This was SO FUN as I think you can tell from the huge smile on my face! I am so excited about some of the projects I will be sharing with you soon and for now here's a behind the scenes sneak peek at my new photography.
When we see other people doing or achieving the things we want, being the types of people we'd like to be more like, living their lives fully and celebrating their success along the way it can be HUGELY triggering.
Nobody likes to cause an eye roll ๐Ÿ˜ฌ So in a world where filtered perfection of our outward and inner worlds are prized, how do you show up fully, truly and as the REAL you?
In the second part of our conversation, Emma shares her advice on how she crushes comparison in her own life and how to get the real story on what's going on behind the social media show reel.
I sat down with my good pal Emma Gannon to talk about her experience of comparison. In part one of this real talk convo we cover all sorts of comparison stingers from body image to money, to IG presence right through to what it takes to be your own version of success.
Do you ever feel guilt after experiencing comparison? Do you struggle with the process of trying to feel enough? I realised a long time ago that our tendency to beat ourselves up about comparison is a common one - so why such a taboo?!
It's one thing getting to a place where #comparison has less of a slimy grip on us - it's another thing *staying* there! Fear not my beautiful babes and dudes I have got your back. (And I hope the blooper gives you a giggle!) This is my go-to method for cutting off the oxygen to comparison.
Comparison is something I've studied since being a young child and even in adulthood every day is still a school day for me. It continues to teach me, challenge me (and p*ss me off) in equal measure. I thought I'd have it cracked by now, right? Ha! Nope!
"BFF". It's a term we throw around a lot to our nearest and dearest pals, buddies, friends, mates and amigos. For many of us, we can be 'all in' on our platonic relationships and as dedicated and committed to them as we might be a lover.
My name is Lucy Sheridan and I am an emotional hoarder. My old college bus pass, letters from my first love, birthday cards, cinema tickets, exam certificates from years gone by... just a small selection of the things I have hoarded and, until recently, held onto.
So often in life we stay silent, waiting and hoping for what we want to just happen. We fear asking because we don't feel worthy of the thing or opportunity we desire or we can't find the words to express our request. So, time just rolls on and nothing happens, aaahh!

It's easy to look at other couples on social media, their selfies beaming back at you in a haze of romantic bliss, and wonder if you'll ever be able to get to a place of harmony with your beau that looks half as good as someone else's.
One of the questions I get asked most often is "Why comparison?" as a topic to focus on in my work and life. I get it - my job title is definitely niche but when you understand my own story of comparison I think you'll see why I am so passionate about this topic.
The word 'change' can make you feel like you either want to run away or stop in your tracks - it can be a scary topic (putting it lightly!). In this video I am sharing my top three ways you can feel better about change and rise up to meet what is happening in your life - whether you asked for it or not.
Do you ever find yourself scrolling IG or FB and you see someone's post and your stomach flips, your hand makes a fist and you can feel your face scrunching up in dismay or disgust? Yep. the green eyed monster doesn't take any prisoners does it?
If you've ever felt like you're not 'enough' or not where you 'should' be in life, then you can bet you've fallen into the comparison trap. It was such a joy to speak at the Project Love Salon at Carousel in London.
Have you ever felt like you're not 'enough'? Or not where you 'should' be in life? Do you experience jealousy when you scroll social media? Or feel like you are missing out or falling behind? Then you can bet you've fallen into the comparison trap and you are in the right place.
So many exciting plans are in the works for the coming months! I'm kicking off my next chapter with an end of summer photoshoot. Can't wait to see the pics? Me either! Here's a little highlights teaser from behind the scenes with Lauren Britton ๐ŸŽฅ and Holly Jones from @glowbossmedia / @glowbossjones.
