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

How to Set Healthy Boundaries and Build Your Self-Esteem

How to Set Healthy Boundaries and Build Your Self-Esteem

Need Help Setting Healthy Personal Boundaries? If you feel uncomfortable with someone else in your space, if you’re feeling angry when other’s won’t listen, or when other’s continue to mistreat you or behave in inappropriate ways, then you may need to step up and start getting clear about your personal boundaries. Healthy boundaries are necessary to protect all areas of your life. For example: Material boundaries determine whether you give or lend things, such as your money, car, clothes or books. Physical boundaries help you determine who may touch you and under what circumstances. Mental boundaries apply to your thoughts, values,

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

Solitude & Self-Care in a Busy World

Solitude & Self-Care in a Busy World

Daily Self-Care and Solitude As our lives get busier and time is harder to juggle, the first thing to slide is usually our own self-care. Even though I’m in a helping profession often reminding my clients with emails and text messages between sessions to “do something nice for yourself today”, I often need reminding myself! I have a book called “The Wonders of Solitude” that is filled with inspiring reminders to nurture your soul amidst a demanding world. It’s filled with insightful quotes from authors, actors and spiritual leaders to medical professionals, singers and comedians – all sharing their words of wisdom on the

This is my Beautiful 40 year old Body

This is my Beautiful 40 year old Body

My Beautiful 40 Year Old Body For those of you wondering how my knee is healing after surgery in June, it’s been slow, especially as a secondary injury was initially overlooked. Over the years my body has faced tremendous abuse; physical, emotional and self-inflicted. I’ve been hard on myself and pushed my body to breaking point many times with several broken bones, tears and surgeries. Throughout many stressful years my weight struggled to settle because of the severe restriction, starvation and binge/purge episodes I put it through for 18 years. My hormones, metabolism and digestion broke down several times. I

Yoga and Meditation Term in Highfields, Darling Downs

Yoga and Meditation Term in Highfields, Darling Downs

Yoga AND Meditation How cool is breathing in alignment with your body moving? And then sitting in stillness to allow the breath to flow through you? I love meditation and I love yoga, having practised both for over 25 years. At one stage, I was quite the yogini – practising regularly and feeling my whole outlook and body change as I bent, stretched, breathed and improved. Whatever was going on in my life often stepped onto the mat with me, but by the time I was finished it had released off my shoulders, heart or mind and allowed me room

Let go of Anger and Find Inner Peace

Let go of Anger, Find Inner Peace When I was a teenager – angry, in denial, resentful and heavy hearted – my reality was believing I was the victim of mistreatment and neglect. I had no sense of personal responsibility, control or conviction. I simply modelled the coping skills of those who raised me. I learnt how to get angry, yell, scream, blame, over-react, sulk, lash out and quickly ignore matters that were too emotional to feel. After each blow up, things would go back to normal – quickly forgotten, as if they never happened. This frustrated me so much when I was left

I Miss My Mother on Mother’s Day But I Remember What She Taught Me

I Miss My Mother on Mother's Day But I Remember What She Taught Me

I Remember, on Mother’s Day Many of you who have met me in person know that I lost my Mother to Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma when I was 24. And even though nearly 16 years have passed, her influence on my life still permeates each and every day. My mother was a most wonderfully warm woman, who never thought twice about helping anyone. She was generous and thoughtful, quick to laugh and smile, and she was always ready with a helping hand, and a soothing rock-me-gently cuddle. One of her greatest disappointments was knowing she would not see her daughters mature into mothers, and her grand-children be born

How I let go of holiday stress & returned to energy, balance & breath

How I let go of holiday stress & returned to energy, balance & breath

Breathe, Relax, Let Go! Happy Wellness Wednesday Friends! 🙂 After the chaos and energy-focused Christmas and school holidays, I realised how much I had compromised my daily self-care practices for other “stuff” that really weren’t a priority. Did you do that too? As soon as I realised my energy, enthusiasm and moods were diminishing I took the warning signs to heart and immediately returned to my heart centre and breath. I knew I was missing and needed my daily self-care of meditation, full breath and mindfulness to keep on top of my self-talk, exercise and food choices.  So I shifted priorities to nourish myself first, and very soon balance

How to Make Worry Your Best Friend

How to Make Worry Your Best Friend

Worry Wars In a recent post on Facebook, Cheryl Richardson – the original Personal Growth Coach – made a lovely confession about worrying: “This morning I woke up worrying. It didn’t start out that way. I opened my eyes to bright sunlight and smiled as I felt the warmth of Michael’s body next to mine and the familiar weight of Poupon cuddled on top of my feet. My moment of bliss went to hell in a handbasket though, the moment my mind joined the party and created a racket!” Worrying is something we all do, however it’s usually at the cost of our

Scientific Proof That Being Thankful Improves Your Health By Dr. Lissa Rankin Thursday, November 28th, 2013 On this day of Thanksgiving, people around the United States are expressing gratitude for the bounty of their lives, but many may not realize that in doing so, they are also improving the quality of their health and increasing their life expectancies.

What My One-Legged Grandfather Taught Me About Life

What My One-Legged Grandfather Taught Me About Life

Listen and Learn When I was in grade one my maternal Grandfather taught me how to spell “encyclopedia”. I was the only child in first grade who could spell such a long and impressive word, which I loved to spell over and over with pride at my young abilities! That same year he also taught me how to recite the alphabet backwards. He used a nifty little rhyme which I’ve recently taught my step-children. Now that really impressed the other grade one kids! Every holiday my older sisters and I would stay with our maternal grandparents for at least a week. We would

Do You Love or Hate Your Body?

Are you in Love or Hate with Your Body? How many times have you looked at your physical reflection and zoned in on the body parts you’re not so fond of, only to begin a barrage of nasty name-calling and judgements in your mind towards it? Our body image is largely dependant on how we FEEL and THINK about our bodies. personal loans lenders for bad credit When we have negative feelings towards our bodies, our mind, mood, confidence, eating choices and behaviour all decline as we focus on those negative feelings, become overcome by them, and eventually feel even more weighed down by what’s
