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.

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.

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]

How To Stay Present Even When You Feel Like You Can’t

  This post, ‘How To Stay Present Even When You Feel Like You Can’t’ has been reblogged from my article on MindBodyGreen. If I had a dollar for every time someone has mentioned Eckhart Tolle’s The Power Of Now recently, I’d be buying every MindBodyGreen reader a big green smoothie with it.

It’s ok to tell people you’re not feeling great…
