Vitality Challenge 2017

September 25, 2017

It’s about this time of year, with a hint of spring in the air that many of us have a strong urge to do something about the way we are living. Many of us are feeling the effects of the long winter lifestyle – too much comfort food, not enough exercise, extra kilos creeping on, not enough sunshine, feeling below par, run down and becoming lethargic, stodgy and unmotivated. More often than not this feeling is a result of our modern lifestyle - we’re all carrying a toxic load! Any health....

Are You Ready to Make a Change and Start Living Your Best Life?

April 26, 2017

We all want to Thrive. We all want to Flourish. We all want to Live a Good Life. We all want to have the energy to pursue our Passion, our Purpose, that thing that we were each born to do. But to thrive and flourish… we need to have good health - good physical health, good mental health and good emotional health. Health is basically the resource for thriving and flourishing. And we already innately know this, yet we are so often ‘stuck’ in our current cycle of day to day, that we f....

Something is Missing! (Part B)

April 3, 2017

In our industry educating, prescribing, and imparting professional knowledge is what we do to promote change and help people to get well. And whilst it is so very important to get the correct information, and the latest research and professional advice, there is still something missing. Because although we are getting great results with helping people restore their health when they become unwell, we’re often not  getting long-term, sustainable results. And this is reflected in our Health s....

Something is Missing! (Part A)

March 27, 2017

There’s something missing – and I’ve been searching for it for a few years now. And to be honest, this has been frustrating because I’m very much an “action” person – I like to think of an idea, research it and implement it immediately. So this journey I’ve been on, this internal struggle and search for the missing link, has taught me a good lesson. It has taught me patience. It has taught me to think deeply. It has taught me to clarify my values and to not settle for anything ....

Strong Body, Strong Mind

February 7, 2017

I’m a huge believer in the mind body connection, that the power of our mind and our mindset has an influence on the physiology of our body. Conversely, I also believe that a strong body influences the state of our mind, our mood, our thinking and our choices. For example over the Christmas and festive season it is wonderful to celebrate with family and friends with festive foods and alcohol; to relax our routines and to rest and rejuvenate. But come the end of January and start of February ....

Life is a “Do it Yourself Project!”

January 23, 2017

Life is a… “Do it Yourself Project” I like to share this story about this time every year because, if you are anything like me, I need this gentle story to remind me that it’s time to re-focus on my health… to realise that if I keep indulging in festive habits my health, my mood, my sleep, my work and my waistline will suffer. It’s time to take back control of my health and enjoy the benefits that optimum health brings. “An elderly carpenter was ready to retire. He told his emplo....

What Does Success Mean For You?

July 13, 2016

Some of you may know that I have just returned from an extended break overseas. And it’s amazing how the complete removal out of your everyday routine can bring a little clarity – it allows you that rare gift of re-evaluating your values and the way you want to live your life. I worry about the current trend of constantly ‘pushing’ ourselves to succeed – to relentlessly stretch our boundaries, our comfort zone and the constant need to strive and reach those ever-accumulating goals. The....

Emotional Resilience Strategies

March 8, 2016

‘To laugh is to risk appearing a fool To weep is to risk being called sentimental To reach out to another is to risk involvement To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self To place your ideas and dreams before a crowd is to risk their loss To love is to risk not being loved in return. To live is to risk dying To try is to risk failure. But risks must be taken Because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing. The people who risk nothing may avoid suffering and sorrow, ....

February 1, 2016

“I’m sick of feeling like this” is a common mantra I hear this time of year. And to be honest I’ve found myself those those same words.

It’s Time to Break the Habit

December 23, 2013

The great thing about Christmas and New Year in the Southern Hemisphere is that it falls in summer. And summer for a lot of us means holidays, sun, relaxing, and lots of socialising with treasured friends and family. It is a time of freedom from strict routines, of sleeping in, eating all the Christmas chocolate and leftover pudding, lazy days reading and snoozing on the banana lounge and generally taking it easy on ourselves. It is actually very important to do this from time to time – to rep....

Life’s an Adventure!

February 24, 2011

Yesterday afternoon we farewelled our younger daughter Molly for an adventure she has been so looking forward to. She was accepted to be part of the crew on the Young Endeavour, sailing for ten days from Williamstown to Hobart. She had been counting the months, days and then hours and it has been nothing but pure excitement on her part. She had been feeling little fear or nervousness in her anticipation but just pure excitement for the challenge of the unknown. It was so great to see and hard no....
