Believe in Yourself & Follow Your Passion

Believe in Yourself & Follow Your Passion

Follow Your Passion, Believe in Yourself How often do you take a moment to acknowledge how far you’ve come and give yourself a huge pat on the back for taking a leap forward? I don’t normally blow my own trumpet, but lately I’ve been practising what I encourage my clients and students to do – take a moment to acknowledge my recent achievements and how it’s changed my life for the better. Towards the end of last year I had a big mindset shift. I realised I wasn’t giving myself enough credit for the immense knowledge I’ve accumulated in the last 6

{Podcast} The Cost of Staying Stuck

{Podcast} The Cost of Staying Stuck

The Cost of Staying Stuck   If you’ve ever tried to reach out for help but at the last minute retreated back into the safety and comfort of what you know – even though it might be painful or uncomfortable – have you ever thought about how much it costs you to stay there? The nature of human behaviour is that we want change, but often are unwilling to do the changing! When I receive an enquiry from someone, they usually send it at a time when they can’t take it anymore. When the pain is too intense, when the discomfort

{Podcast Video} Abuse and Body Image – Emerging from Past Pain

{Podcast Video} Abuse and Body Image - Emerging from Past Pain

PODCAST: Abuse and Body Image Emerge from Past Pain & Reclaim Your Life   There are many different types of abuse. It can come from the self or it can come from others but all forms of abuse are painful. What happens when the abuse from another turns into excessive abuse towards yourself in the form of punishing, destructive and sabotaging exercise and eating behaviours? In this brand new podcast video I invited Elena Terziyska from EAT Nutrition to talk – for the first time in public – about her experience of remembering her childhood sexual abuse and how that fuelled her body

Don’t Diet this Christmas, Do This Instead

Don't Diet this Christmas, Do This Instead

Instead of Dieting, Bingeing or Restricting this Christmas Try a New Approach… It’s that time of year again when many of us freak out at the abundant supply of festive food that is often on our “forbidden/bad/diet says no” list. Because I have no intention of losing my mind dieting for the next two weeks just so I can let loose on Christmas Day, my lead up is mostly calm, relaxed and peaceful. (I say mostly because I can’t control everything.. and it relieves a lot of unnecessary pressure when you realise that.) Your Christmas can be calm, relaxed and peaceful

3 Steps to Embrace Your Body Now

Embrace Your Body in 3 Steps, NOW Ready to embrace your body, dump the hate and stop punishing it with endless diets and negative self-talk? Recently I attended the first Toowoomba screening of the new documentary, EMBRACE by Taryn Brumfitt. Hundreds of women, men and children have attended in our region, but after watching, feeling inspired, shedding tears and finding hope… now what? It’s opened a huge pandoras box for so many women who are now wondering, well just HOW do I embrace my body? What do I do? Our bodies are nobody else’s business, yet we constantly allow ourselves to be distracted by comparison,

Here’s How….   For those of you experiencing depression, anxiety, isolation or low self-esteem, I want to share this story with you to provide hope for a future you might not yet be able to imagine possible… Last week after teaching a postgraduate course on Autonomic Nervous System Reprogramming to my MindBodyFood Institute Advanced Diploma students, I received this totally unexpected gift of appreciation. The student who gave it to me came to this work after working with me on her self-doubt, insecurities and personal fulfillment. She wanted to feel happier, healthier and create a sense

MINDBODYFOOD PODCAST   Do you struggle with self-sabotaging beliefs? Do you get so far on your health and wellness journey, start to see positive changes, feel like you’re actually making progress and starting to feel more energy, more positivity and even a glimpse of self-love… And then all of a sudden….. something happens that triggers your subconscious mind and you come to a screaming holt, reverting back to old habits of thinking, feeling and behaving?! Maybe you find yourself focusing back on your food: restricting again, cutting foods out.. At the end of the day you might find yourself hungry, but

What’s Holding You Back?

What's Holding You Back?

  Have you ever shown up and did something that you weren’t initially sure about – do I know enough, can I pull this off, will I be able to deliver – but then totally surprised yourself by how much fun you had, and how comfortably you took to it when you did? That’s how I feel now after finally stepping up to the plate this year and teaching the yoga portion of the first half of my yoga and meditation classes. I love teaching meditation – I love teaching, connecting and engaging with people in general. But I hadn’t realised just how

Why You Need to Love Yourself + Free PDF Printable

Do You Love Yourself? FREE Self-Love Reminders Printable PDF below!   I used to loathe myself. Love was a word that didn’t compute. I could never truly accept love because I didn’t know how to feel it for myself. As babies we are born happy, loveable and wanting to love. But what happens when we experience feelings of neglect, criticism or abandonment in our childhood…. that we feel the hurt so strongly and intensely as children we appoint ourselves to blame and internalise our pain? As we grow, a part of us begins to believe we are unworthy of love…. That inner child who felt unsafe and

I Felt Like a Fat Failure

I Felt Like a Fat Failure

VULNERABILITY ALERT… (spoiler, I’m not perfect) Yesterday I felt like a fat, inauthentic, hypocritical failure. I know I’ve gotten into some bad habits this year as I’ve struggled to balance a growing business and demand for my time with now building a second training institute, being a supportive partner, a loving and present step-mum, and delivering consistent energy and enthusiasm at my classes, workshops and live events. Somewhere in there I forgot to PRIORITISE myself. I forgot that my body doesn’t like missing breakfast, and especially does NOT like skipping lunch or being delayed to the point of feeling famished.

Release Emotional Pain with This Simple Practice

Release Emotional Pain with This Simple Practice

A Simple Energy Practice to Release Emotional Pain   Ho’oponopono (pronounced “hoh-OH-pohno-pohno) is an ancient Hawaiian system of healing, problem solving and transformation. In Hawaiian, Ho’oponopono means “to make right or to rectify an error.” This may not necessarily be something literal that you have done. An “error” can also be a memory network of emotions, words, situations and behaviours that replay in your subconscious mind and feed your limiting beliefs. Are you carrying around emotional pain that has turned into physical pain? Do you feel heavy and weighed down by the burden of feelings? Are you using food, alcohol

Is Self-Worth Found In the 'Perfect' Sized Jeans?

Is Self-Worth Found In the ‘Perfect’ Sized Jeans? During a little spring clean of my denim jeans drawer last week I was inspired to create a video for my YouTube Channel and bare my bedroom clean-out with all my social media subscribers. Apparently I was oblivious to just how many pairs of denim jeans I had accumulated and held onto over the last ten years – waiting for the day I was ‘thin enough’ to wear them again.  For some reason every time my Beloved would help me clean out my wardrobe (you know, with the approving nod or the toss-it-out shake) I
