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…

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…

But not…

What’s on your Harmony List?

How lovely are these statements? Reading them fills me with a feeling of peace, calm and tranquility. 🙏🏻🍃 And a dawning reality that I have much work to do to feel this way consistently. And I question whether I’ll ever achieve it. One can only strive towards it. I do, however, remember certain moments in my life where I have felt like this. This is my Harmony List – When I consistently exercise, when I regularly meditate, when I eat…

Yoga for back pain.

Yoga … it’s my exercise thing. Even though I was into athletics and running in high school, I’m not really into high-impact exercise anymore. I like the slow, smooth and steady approach to getting fit and leaving all my problems on the mat. I remember a time I had to get massaged every month without fail to deal with stiff shoulders and neck due to working in front of a computer for hours and days on end. Don’t get me…
