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.

How to survive the silly season December 08 2014, 0 Comments
It’s that time again. How on earth did it come around so damn quick? Fastest. Year. Ever.
It only feels like yesterday it was January and I was just putting the Christmas tree away! It feels as though time is speeding up and life is moving very fast. The hope for any down time in December and taking five to relax may feel like mission impossible.
With only 16 days until Christmas are you finding yourself rushing around madly with your to-do-list in hand, racing from shop to shop trying to get the ‘perfect’ gift for your loved ones? Are you spending longer in the car park fighting for a car space than in the shopping centre itself?
I have some simple suggestions to help you move through December with ease and set yourself up for a successful 2015. Read the full blog post here.

Motherhood and Following Your Own Path November 16 2014, 0 Comments
I'm not a mother. However, I have many friends, family and colleagues who are. I know how tough it is, stepping in to babysit my gorgeous but energetic nieces and nephew for a mere 24 hours and often wonder how I would survive if I was a mother. I hear on a regular basis how hard it is to make the transition to motherhood unscathed. With high rates of post natal depression, social isolation and the massive change in roles, the transition to motherhood is highly underrated! Mums-to-be frantically read all the self-help books they can get their hands on to prepare for the much anticipated arrival of the bub, only to find that it doesn't quite cut it.
For today's blog I have invited along a very special guest, Yvette Lee-Archer, mother of one and owner of Ella Rinnova to discuss her thoughts and tips on how to survive motherhood. Read the full blog post here.
Why I've quit coffee October 25 2014, 2 Comments
Almost three weeks ago now I decided to quit coffee. I love the smell and love the taste but don't really like what happens afterwards to my poor belly! Grumble, grumble then a quick run to the nearest bathroom (sorry for the details).
I've never been a coffee addict, but what started out as 1-2 coffees over the weekend had become a daily habit. Walking past my favourite coffee shop on the way to work smelling that delicious coffee scent, coupled with the cold winter made it hard not to stop off for my daily coffee. I loved chatting to the baristas and analysing our crazy dreams as my coffee was being created. It also made for a nice excuse to get out of the office to stretch my legs after sitting at my desk all day. Read the full blog post here.
