Introducing the Take Care Project

Introducing the Take Care Project

  (Enrolments have now closed). What? The Take Care Project is about something simple, which many of us (including myself) forget from time-to-time- that if we’re not taking care of ourselves, we can’t be of service to others, and we’re also doing ourselves a complete disservice. Many of us (again, my hand’s going up here) think […read more]

How to Deal with Judging Others

How to Deal with Judging Others

{A LITTLE NOTE ON JUDGEMENT} I found myself judging a lot of people on Friday. The girl on the bus with the crazy short skirt. The woman I saw walking home with the gorgeous earrings and the Gucci handbag. The man asking for money outside the supermarket to help him go travelling. I’d had a very […read more]

I wrote this blog post years ago, years before I even started blogging, after reading Anatomy of the Spirit: The Seven Stages of Power and […read more]

Symptoms of CFS

Symptoms of CFS

  One of the hardest things I had to do during my recovery and illness was explain my symptoms to people and the reasons I couldn’t do everyday things. On the surface, if you see someone with CFS, unless they’re in hospital or in bed, they don’t really look ill. This was one of the […read more]

What is the Difference between CFS and ME?

What is the Difference between CFS and ME?

  I’ve been asked a lot about the difference between CFS and ME recently, so I thought I’d write a short post about it. When I was diagnosed, I was diagnosed with M.E (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) and I was incredibly sick. Over the years however, the term CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) has come to replace the term M.E- […read more]

A Day In The Life Of A Person With M.E. CFS

A Day In The Life Of A Person With M.E. CFS

  I’ve never really shared this with anyone, but I’d like to lay out what a day in the life of a person with M.E. CFS might look like. This is what my day looked like while I was recovering from M.E./CFS (as I mention here, these terms have become a bit blurry over the years!). I’m […read more]

Managing Anger and CFS

Managing Anger and CFS

  Image taken from here This is a post I never really thought I’d write, but I’ve been called to write it after numerous emails from readers and questions from clients. “How can I move on to loving and accepting my illness and myself when I’m so angry with my body and for the way things have […read more]

Why Healthy Eating is Only Part of the Battle

Why Healthy Eating is Only Part of the Battle

  Before I really get into this post, let me just say that diet-wise, I’m as quinoa, chia seed-obsessed as the next person. I’m constantly looking for creative vegan recipes and attempting to experiment in the kitchen. I’m a smoothie and juice guzzlin’ gal who has gained a bit of reputation among her friends as […read more]

4 CFS Lessons from The Dalai Lama

  I was incredibly honoured recently to be able to attend a talk in Sydney with His Holiness, The Dalai Lama on his recent tour of Australia. I instinctively knew that there was something he had to say that would relate to CFS and that I could bring back to you. Scribbling notes in my […read more]

5 Tips on How to Learn to Listen to Your Body

This post is dedicated to the gorgeous Christiana- thank you so much for contributing my darling. Hope you’re having a lovely day! Picture taken from here One of the most frustrating parts of my healing and recovery from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome was the idea of ‘pacing’ myself. I’d read books about it, everybody talks about it in relation to […read more]

Are Your Limiting Views Holding You Back?

Are Your Limiting Views Holding You Back?

  During my recent complete break from the internet, the clarity and space I gained a result was nothing short of phenomenal. In fact, I still can’t quite believe how my thought patterns shifted and expanded during that time. Image taken from here One of the things that became very clear to me is that, […read more]

Because Everyone Is Doing Their Best

Because Everyone Is Doing Their Best

  Recently, as some of you might know from Facebook, I’ve been a little bit all over the place. Lots of changes in my working schedule have meant a huge body-clock knock and also a bit of a change-up in how I work. This has also meant a big change in my how I choose […read more]
