Your 2015 Healthy Habits Challenge Posted on January 14, 2015 | No Comments

More often than not our goals for the new year will include something along the lines of “get healthier” or of course “lose weight”. Whilst I am forever in support of these goals, I believe a lot of us go to hard too quickly and as a result, end up falling off the bandwagon come the end of Jan or early Feb. For this reason I have compiled a list of 12 healthy habits for 2015, all of which you can tick off one month at time. This means that by the end of 2015, not only will you have achieved your goal of “adopt a healthier lifestyle”, you will look great, feel amazing whilst all in all, crossing 12 health challenges off your “to-do” list. Here’s what you need to get started on your “2015 Healthy Habits Challenge”…

What I learned in 2014 Posted on December 24, 2014 | No Comments

It’s incredibly easy for life to pass us by without even realising what, when or how much we have changed (am I the only one who feels like somehow we managed to skip 6 months of 2014 and no-one is saying anything?). This is why I like to take a little “me time” during the festive season and reflect on the year that was. This is a new-ish ritual of mine, that I know will send some people running for the hills (yes, I used to be one of those people), but 3 years in, I realised just how much I love this time of reflection. All you need to know to get started and what I learned in 2014 (business, relationships and life in general), is right here…

The Problems with Calorie Counting Posted on October 13, 2014 | No Comments

My first calorie counting mission began after reading a glossy magazine special on how to achieve the infamous body of a Victoria’s Secret model. As all glossy magazines do, they made the transformation look incredibly simple, complete with easy at home workouts and a restricted 1200 calories per day diet. At an impressionable age, that’s all it took for me to adopt this way and life and from that moment on, each and every day became consumed by calories. Whilst I always thought I was ‘healthy’, what eventuated was a whole host of health problems that can be attributed to my diet and lifestyle at that time. To prevent others from making the same mistake, today I discuss the problems with calorie counting and why I am against it…

“How I lost 24kgs with ‘An Apple a Day'” Posted on September 10, 2014 | No Comments

A while back my partner was approached by a supporter at a football match who told him ‘An Apple a Day’ had helped him lose 24kgs and turn his life around for the better. Helping someone to change their life is something you only ever dream of doing, and when you do this by following your passion, the feeling only grows exponentially.
Only a few days later I heard from this supporter via email. His story was so incredibly powerful and something I knew so many people out there could relate to. I asked Alex if he would share his story with the readers and he happily obliged. A huge thank you to Alex for sharing this story. WARNING: Be prepared to be inspired.

The Happiness Advantage Posted on May 19, 2014 | 3 Comments

What would you say if I told you that you could retrain your brain to view the world in a different way? What would you say if I told you that by doing so, you would raise your level of productivity at home and at work, you would build stronger relationships and achieve greater health? What would you say if I told you it would take less than 3 minutes each day to literally turn your life around for the better?

What I am talking about is ‘The Happiness Advantage’…

When I made a mountain out of a mole hill Posted on April 14, 2014 | No Comments

It is fair to say that my fear of dentists was an all consuming fear. One that would fill me with anxiety even at the thought of having to lie in a dentist chair without a soul in the room.
This fear stemmed from a horrific (and might I add, completely unnecessary) experience as a child. Think pain, tears, being pinned to the chair and complete lack of control. Not great. Which is why when I was told 15 years ago that I would need to have my wisdom teeth removed, I RAN in the other direction. I put it off again and again and again. I have used every excuse in the book. That was until this year when I knew I had no where left to hide.

What’s so good about a juice cleanse? Posted on March 12, 2014 | No Comments

For those of you who follow my Instagram account, you would remember that last week, with the help of the incredible team at ‘The Living Juice Co.’, I embarked on my very first juice cleanse. Whilst I will admit that I was a little apprehensive at first (I LOVE chewing my food), I am pleased to report that I thoroughly enjoyed the cleanse and more importantly, I am thoroughly enjoying the results! Before I spill all of the beans relating to my juice cleanse experience, I wanted you all to understand a little more about a juice-cleanse and why it may be something you could benefit from. To help me explain, I sat down with the beautiful Nicole, founder of ‘The Living Juice Co’ and asked her a few questions…

Overcoming Self Doubt Posted on March 10, 2014 | No Comments

For a few months now, I have been adding a more personal touch to my weekly newsletters. This means including more personal pieces exclusively for my subscribers. These pieces discuss the lessons I have learnt during the week and how various experiences have changed me for the better. Ever since I started doing this, I have received such an overwhelming positive response from my newsletter subscribers (still makes me blush) and because they are all such beautiful people, they have encouraged me to share these on the blog for all to see. I hope you like them as much as they do. This week I kick things off with my latest piece, overcoming self doubt.
