Trees can help you find health and happiness. Whether you are eating them, watering them or walking through a forest, they yield incredible power of both body and mind. I often feel like I am repeating myself. The words arranged a little differently but the same message. It can be vexing as I search for new ways to deliver a very simplistic message, in engaging ways that make people want to make these lifestyle changes. So instead of regurgitating my message, I’ll start with
We all have those weeks where we feel a little overwhelmed and drop the ball.. right?! This week in combination with a full moon, the level of anxiety to ‘get things done’ has leveled up like the rising tides with the pull of the moon. I have taken on extra hours at the Psychology clinic which means 9 hour days and with 18 hours less this week to work on the business, family time and life( by way I mean chores), I have held the same expectation of myself to achieve my goals..
The Australian Psychological Society defines stress as a “feeling of being overloaded, wound up, tight, tense and worried. We all experience stress at times. It can sometimes help to motivate us to get a task finished, or perform well. But stress can also be harmful if we become over-stressed, interfering with our ability to get on with our normal life for too long.” Whilst you may have a great picture or catalogue of ideas of your dreamy self-care activities, are you actuall
Today I wasn’t myself. This morning I woke up and it was like I hit every branch of a cranky tree on the way down from the very top branches. I can often shake it, yet today, being human, it was one of those days! I advocate Mindfulness so on days when I just feel shitty, am emotionally re-active and lash out, I spiral into self-negativity, self-doubt and guilt; not very mindful right?! Usually when I feel days like this, I can usually take myself out for a long walk, run a b
Exploring nature with our children and those whom we have a significant influence over, think nephews nieces or younger cousins is crucial to their well-being, as it is yours! Teaching our kids to get outdoors, disconnect from technology and the over stimulation that our society places on them instills a sense of self-care and creates a ' time out' that allows them to engage their sense of exploration, both in body and mind. Activities that are centered on immersing themselv
Did you know that bacteria, collectively known as Microbiome outnumber our own human cells 10 to one, and majority call home in our guts! Crazy to think that we are less human than bacteria, this is why it’s so incredibly, super-duper important that we are mindful of what we eat! We are feeding these little monsters! Research has shown, that alternating the balance between beneficial and disease-causing bacteria in an animal's gut can alter its brain chemistry and lead it to
As another week comes to an end I feel an overwhelming sense of in-completion. Between work roles this week and that of Mother and wife, the pressure that I put on myself to complete an unattainable amount of work has left me with the sense of dizziness from my self-made hamster wheel. Anxious and filled with self-doubt, it can be a vicious cycle if you don’t quieten the mind and body. This is not new to me or to any other women trying to “do it all”. Am I right? There is a
