The life-changing magic of the Desire Map April 10 2016, 0 Comments

For those of you who know me or have been following my blog for a while, you will know that I'm a HUGE fan of the Desire Map. 

There is so much power in declaring your desires and setting intentions. Something magical happens when we get crystal clear on what we want and then go after it. Do you know what I'm talking about? Read the full blog post here.


The art of saying no April 01 2016, 0 Comments

 

Setting boundaries and learning to say no is a huge topic! It's something that I'm fascinated by and has been coming up for me for sometime. I used to be a serial 'good girl' which equated to being a 'yes girl' and a 'put-myself-last-girl.' I used to take pride in my ability to do it all! But my inability to say no has led me to serious burnout on a number of occasions. Leaving me wondering when will I ever learn? While I'm much better than I have been in the past I still revert back to old ways at times and need to keep myself in check. To read the full blog post click here.


What I want for you in 2016 January 01 2016, 0 Comments

 

Happy New Year! As we enter the first day of 2016, I feel inspired, full of hope and possibility. How about you? Perhaps you're not feeling this way at all. Regardless of how you're feeling and whether you like it or not, there is so much talk of New Year's resolutions and goals at this time. We can easily get into thinking we aren't enough, didn't achieve enough and need to be someone or do something totally different to make the new year better. Or worse still, if you're feeling in a funk and everyone else is all up beat and excited, it can only make you feel worse. Start where you are. Sit with whatever you're feeling today. But know this.

This is what I want for you this year…

Less stress. Less overwhelm. Less anxiety. Less worry.

Less exhaustion. Less burnout. Fewer meltdowns.

Less numbing of emotions, mindless boozing and T. V.

Less procrastinating. Less self-doubt. Less self-sabotage.

How to utilise the energy of the New Year December 13 2015, 0 Comments

 

I absolutely LOVE this time of year, the festive season vibes, the promises and excitement of a new year ahead.  Time to hit reset. Clear the slate. Start fresh. Take the valuable lessons from the current year and let go of anything that no longer serves you. The year's end is the perfect time to take a moment to stop and reflect on the year that has been. The highs, the lows and everything in between! Setting sacred time aside to consider and celebrate your achievements is so important. Spending time dreaming, visualising and planning the next twelve months is equally as important to ensure you have a road map to get where you wish to go. To read the full blog post click here.

How I lost my yoga mojo July 26 2015, 0 Comments

Is anyone else finding this winter particularly challenging? Low energy, wanting to hibernate? Eating twice as much, having super strong sugar cravings, not wanting to exercise, just wanting to stay wrapped up in bed with a cup of tea? I am the first to put up my hand! I love the winter, I love snuggling in bed longer, rugging up in a winter coat and beanie, the fresh, crisp winter air as it hits my face. It makes me feel alive. But I don't like what else winter has brought with it.

Guilt. 

I have a confession to make. To read the full blog post click here.


Can procrastination be a form of intuition? June 26 2015, 0 Comments

As most of you will know if you follow me on social media or read my blog, I'm a huge fan of Danielle LaPorte and the Desire Map. At the start of the year I ordered her Truth Bomb card deck, which is AMAZING! When it arrived I decided to pull a card out to place on my desk.

The card I pulled got me thinking.

The first reason this card got me so intrigued was that starting my own business has really shone a light on my procrastination habits. I've analysed the why I procrastinate, where it might come from, what is behind it and ways to overcome it until the cows have come home! I'm at peace with the fact that I still procrastinate much more than I would like. I realise it's a deeply ingrained habit that will take time and patience to re-wire and change. I'm ok with that. Acceptance and compassion have become my friends when it comes to my procrastination habits. Read the full blog post here.


Goals with Soul (Part 3 in the series) January 19 2015, 0 Comments

 

It's mid January. The New Year. 2015. Predicted by some to be a very prosperous, abundant year where the hard work of previous years comes into fruition. In part three of this blog series I want to introduce you to an incredible ideology that will underpin your goal setting and resolutions for the year. It flips the idea of goal setting and resolutions on its head. It's real. Raw. It's a humanised way of looking at intention setting in a different light. It makes so much sense. I believe it also sheds a whole lotta light on why 92% of us don't achieve our New Year's resolutions. So who is the creator? To read the full blog post click here.


Do you suck at sticking to New Year's resolutions? (Part 2) January 06 2015, 2 Comments

I'm sitting here wearing next to nothing as it's so so hot in Melbourne today. I'm in flow so I'm going to keep writing in what will become a three part blog series. Given 2015 is now in full swing I got to thinking while blogging about resolutions what are some of my goals, intentions and resolutions for this new year? I better heed my own advice and make them obvious and known (remember it helps with accountability). I also started to think more about how meaningful my goals are and how passionate I am about making them more than just resolutions, but part of my life. My theory is the more meaningful something is to you the more likely you are to achieve it. This was something that was also ingrained in me in my studies as an occupational therapist. Participation in meaningful activities has been proven to lead to better health outcomes. To read the full blog post click here.
