Why unplugging is good for your health

Do you wake up and immediately reach for your phone to check the latest Facebook or Instagram post or skim read your list of unanswered e-mails? Do feel the knot in your stomach tighten as your morning ritual is underway and feel the stress pot begin to boil? Do you then berate yourself for your [...]

My Tips for a Healthy Diet

When was the last time you tried one of the 100 diets on the dietary theory roulette? Researched and read what felt like pages of facts and figures but still couldn't work out some of the biggies -  is dairy good or bad? Is Paleo too much protein?  Is raw the new way forward? Which is the best diet? Vegetarianism?  Blood Type?  [...]

How to connect with others and deepen relationships.

This has been a new ‘aha’ moment for me over the last few months.   I was listening to a Gabby Bernstein podcast where she talked about the risk of putting others up on a peddle stool.   Her message was simple: When you do this, you are reducing your chance for connection.   The energy is off. [...]

How to REBOOT when you are feeling under the weather

I believe that feeling under the weather is our body’s way of communicating.   It’s up to us to interpret the signals and act accordingly.   Sometimes we need to slow down or re-evaluate our boundaries.   Sometimes we just need to let go and allow our body to express what it needs to express.    Making space in [...]

Forgiveness – it’s time to cancel your subscription

Who do you need to forgive? Have you noticed how we are so unbelievably hard on ourselves and others?   How we commit 100% to believing the crazy and warped stories we tell ourselves.   Not only do we renew our subscription every day but we treat these stories like a prized possession, print them out in colour, [...]

It’s time to woman up!

I was having a chat to a friend about what I do as a health and lifestyle coach .   A vague account about my goal to help women be healthy and happy didn’t appease her curiosity.   She dug deeper. I dug deeper (who needs a coach when you have friends huh)? I told her I love to empower mums [...]

8 Year Old Simplicity

Does this sound eerily familiar?   You want something badly.   You want to change.   You know it will serve your health and happiness.   You know it will benefit your family and life as a whole.   However, you instantly think of a million excuses why it won’t work.   The timing isn’t right.   It costs too much.   Change [...]

My shortcut to happiness!

Some words of wisdom …. The moment you change your perception, is the moment you rewrite the chemistry of your body’. Dr Bruce Lipton Welcome to GRATITUDE!   It’s hard to contextualise what those in Nepal are going through – such utter destruction and sadness.   The flip side is that it’s impossible to not feel an [...]

How to stay healthy this Winter!

After an amazing week at the beach house with hubby and the kids,  it was a rather rude awakening to find winter had arrived back in Auckland earlier this week (like overnight)! I think it’s one of those mind over matter scenarios but I automatically started to feel fluey,  tired and run down.   My body was two [...]

The ripple effect of being Authentic!

I'm on a mission to be more AUTHENTIC (the new buzz word at the moment) in all areas of my life. For me, when you are living in a way that coincides with what you expect from others or in what you say you stand for...life gets easier! People can sniff out a fraud pretty [...]
