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…

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…

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…

Greenery – new beginnings 2017

Do you love the colour Greenery?⠀ In our design studio, we focus a lot on colour. And this month is a special one, as Pantone released the 2017 colour of the year, Greenery. According to Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute, “It symbolises the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.”⠀ It got me thinking.⠀ ⠀ With 2017 only a few weeks away, it’s a time for reflection on the year past and…

You are special

Sometimes, you will know the effect you have on someone else’s life … but often, you won’t.⠀ 🍃 You may smile at a stranger in the street, who has just lost their job – they walk away with a little glimmer of hope. ⠀ 🍃 You may tell someone you love them, at the precise moment when they have been having suicidal thoughts and they really need a friend – they walk away feeling loved. ⠀ ⠀ 🍃 You may…

Mindfulness

Is your life peaceful?⠀ A peaceful life, inside and out. ⠀ ⠀ We all strive for it. Sometimes we experience it, other times, we don’t. ⠀ And it all comes down to our mind, and the choices we make for it.⠀ ⠀ Mindfulness is a therapeutic practice of focusing on the present moment and calmly acknowledging and accepting your feelings, thoughts and bodily sensations.⠀ ⠀ Many of us live our lives allowing situations and our minds to master us and…

Conscious living

For quite a while now, I have been trying to live consciously. With intention and positivity. It’s not easy, and sometimes I fail miserably, but when I succeed, I feel in flow and centred. So I keep trying … everyday. So what does it mean to live consciously? Well for me, it means making active, self aware, positive and confident decisions for everything in my life. All the time. With purpose-filled intention. That includes my purchases (especially food and healthcare),…
