My relationship with my body has changed. I used to consider it as a servant who should obey, function, give pleasure. In sickness, you realise that you are not the boss. It is the other way around. / Federico Fellini /

How many of us have experienced this? We push our bodies to their limits. We think we are indestructible. We think we are eternal. The reality is that our bodies can only take so much. Drinking, smoking, poor food choices, stress, exposure to toxins, strenuous physical activity, lack of sleep…these all contribute to our bodies eventually screaming out. “STOP” Much like Federico Fellini, my relationship with my body has changed. I have absolutely pushed my body beyond it’s limits, and…

Successful people start before they feel ready / Richard Branson /

How many times have you thought: “I’ll start eating better tomorrow.” “I would love to do something about the extra weight I’m carrying.” “I’ve got a great business idea!” “It’s time to look for a better job.” “I’d love to start using better skincare.” And you do nothing and just go back to normal everyday life. Sound familiar? Ever wondered why? It might be a whole range of reasons. But often it’s because we feel fear. Fear of rejection, fear…

Food Changes Everything / Joshua Rosenthal /

It really does.⠀ I remember a time where I never gave a second thought to what or when I ate. The only things I did think about were “this tastes good, give me more” or “I’m hungry now, what can I eat to snack on quickly” or “I’ll skip breakfast because I’ve no time and I’ll just eat a chocolate bar in the car on the way to work”. Can anyone relate?⠀ ⠀ In my my early thirties, I started…

There is no money in healthy people or dead people. The money is in sick people / Bill Maher /

I’ve been watching a range of doco’s lately focusing on the world health epidemic. The rise of blood pressure, cholesterol, obesity, Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease etc in our communities is alarming. And there is no sign of a decrease in sight. ⠀ We are conditioned to think that such illnesses are ‘common’ now. There’s a pill for everything, coupled with advice that you must eat well and exercise, together with a script for your daily dose of medicine that…

Morning Routine

What do you do when you first wake up?⠀ Check your phone? Have a warm tea or coffee, or lemon water perhaps? Give bubs a bottle? Have brekky? Chill out on the couch for a bit. Yeah, me too.⠀ ⠀ Pre-baby though, I had a very different morning routine. One I am desperate to get back to, albeit I know it will be a little modified, with the addition of little one in our lives now. My routine was based…

Lucerne, Switzerland

Nature’s beauty inspires me all over the world, as it’s so different everywhere you go. Architecture, accessibility, altitude, climate … so many factors influence what we see.⠀ Travelling over the years to many parts of the world has taught me a lot. Mainly to be grateful for where I live, and for the gift the rest of the world is to each of us.⠀ Flashing back to 1998 on my trip to Lucerne, Switzerland where I experienced this magical bridge…

Habits Quote

It’s the start of the year (only just!), and I’ve been thinking a lot about habits and how to remain consistent in everything that is important to me, so that I live happily. Honestly, I have struggled with this over time.⠀ I think back to where I let life lead me, I had minimal routines, no rituals, and just went with the flow … and it worked for that period of my life and suited my fluid personality. But not…

Wardrobe Declutter

This is what I would like my wardrobe to look like, not what it actually looks like ha ha. But I’m striving for it!⠀ So I’ve already shared that I’ve been decluttering our entire home through January in order to clear my mind and be ready for the year ahead. In only a few days, we are back in our design studio and will be in the thick of it. It’s been amazing to clear the junk out of our…

Declutter Wayne Dyer Quote

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been on a decluttering binge fest. Thanks, Peter Walsh.⠀ And boy, does it feel good. 😊⠀ Everything is getting cleared out. The spare room (which hubby and I affectionately call “the room no one speaks of”) is currently the dumping ground for everything that doesn’t have a place – it’s getting a massive overhaul. Everything is going that: I haven’t touched in over a year, has long-term dust on it (you know what I’m…
