So you might have also noticed (along with the rising temperatures) that around this time of year people start to think about the things they did, and the things they didn’t do over the last 12 months. Things they want to do, or things they tried to do but failed at first time around (or maybe second or third time around, as the case may be). Read the rest of this post »
I was actually a bit hesitant about writing this blog because in all honesty, it’s difficult to find the right words to describe just how magical my time in Bali was! It’s not very often that you find yourself surrounded by like-minded people, accepting, non-judging, supportive and full of love and gratitude. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced anything like it before, and if I ever experience again then I will call myself a very blessed individual!
Of course, day one I was pretty nervous. Read the rest of this post »
Hello from Bali! Or more specifically, Ubud – mecca for yogis and nature lovers alike. And for me, being both of those, it’s pretty much paradise. If you don’t follow me on Facebook then you might be wondering why I’m here, so let me give you a bit of a breakdown of what’s happening at the moment.
I’ve basically taken a three-week hiatus from my normal life to immerse myself in all things yoga. To live, breathe, eat and sleep my yoga teacher training. Read the rest of this post »
It’s time to get really clear on your goals. When it comes to our health, sometimes we think we know what our goal is, but we’re actually looking at it from completely the wrong angle. So then what happens? We don’t reach our goals! Because we don’t really know what they are!
It’s all about understanding your true motives, and your underlying desire, for wanting the thing that you want.
I was thinking about this today when a good friend asked me why I was heading off to do my yoga teacher training. Read the rest of this post »
“I’ve dropped 10kg in body weight in the past 4.5 months and feel the fittest/healthiest I have ever been in my 36 years of life. I am not on a diet (can’t deprive myself!) I have done it by taking the time to learn how to love my body, learnt to listen to its needs, learnt to work with it not against it and nurture the amazing machine it is.

I think all of us have to deal with stress at some stage. Whether it’s from your job, or your kids, or having too much stuff to do, it’s pretty much a normal part of our lives now. Which sucks, to be perfectly honest! Because unfortunately, stress is not your friend (well, unless you’re actually in a life-or-death situation, but that’s not what we’re talking about here). It doesn’t help you get things done, it doesn’t help you enjoy what you’re doing, and even once that thing that was stressing you out is over – it doesn’t help you celebrate!

I freely admit, I never used to care about my morning routine. There was no such thing as a morning routine! It was me, rolling out of bed, showering, and rolling out the door. Sometimes there was coffee involved, and sometimes there were cigarettes involved. Sometimes I was so hungover I can’t even remember what was involved! It’s scary really, looking back on my life and where my priorities once lay. But these days, well it’s an understatement to say that my life, and my mornings, are very different.

I’m the first to admit, when it comes to my business as a health coach, I find it hard to switch off. My poor hubby and the countless nights he’s had to cook dinner, do the dishes, and compete with my laptop for my attention! I’m lucky he’s a patient kind of guy or I’d be in real trouble. But it’s not that I’m a workaholic (or at least, I don’t think I am), it’s just that I love what I do. Read the rest of this post »
You may remember earlier this year I wrote a blog about my decision to quit drinking. This was back at the very start of May, just before my 34th birthday, and it was a big deal for me. And when I say big, I mean, massive. I’ve spent my whole life it seems loving a glass of wine, enjoying a night drinking with friends, and bonding with people over a big booze session. Being the big introvert that I am, alcohol helped get me out of my shell as a teenager. Read the rest of this post »
I’m going to let you in on a little secret. There’s one relationship in my life that seems to be controlling all of my other relationships at the moment, and for some reason it doesn’t matter how well I plan things, it just doesn’t work. Right now, it’s my biggest limitation. I’m rearranging everything for it! And still, I keep finding that things aren’t going the way I want them too.
It’s my relationship with time.
I feel like I’m constantly saying to people, I’m busy! Read the rest of this post »
