Set an Intention, Not a Resolution

Natural Remedies for Cold and Flu Season

Feeling under the weather? When the temperatures drop, we tend to spend more time indoors, get less sunshine and fresh air, and consume more indulgent, comfort foods. This combination leads to higher exposure to airborne organisms and decreased immunity, which means you're more likely to catch a cold or flu.

Make your New Year's resolution stick

We often see the New Year as a fresh start; throw away the old habits that don’t serve us and start with the new habits. We begin with gusto but by the end of January many of us have given up and settled back into life with our old ways, deciding that it is far harder than we first thought. Read More

Day 10 - 10 day blog challenge - Celebrating freedom

This 10-day challenge has been awesome. I have learnt so much in the last 10 days and it has really got me excited about living a life of freedom. I loved that no matter what I had on that day my most important action for the day was to write this blog post. I was part of a local wearable arts award event last weekend and so it could have been easy to say that I was too busy to blog. Instead what I did was get up early each morning and get the blog post written. I found that when I had a deadline to write the post I just got on with it and got it done. Read More

Day 7 10 day blog challenge - Beating procrastination and overwhelm

Procrastination is not my friend, the key to success is about taking small steps rather than waiting to be perfect. How many times do you see someone starting out in business and they get paralysed at the first step - making their business cards, they say that they can't start their business until they have their cards. I say forget the cards and just get out there. At the Institute of Integrated Nutrition, they give their students free business cards for this very reason, to stop the students procrastinating. My set of business cards arrived this week, I had a chance to personalise them on-line, and although they are not the sexiest cards in the world they have my details on them and best of all they were free and arrived within 2 weeks.
