Your New Year Healthy Habits Challenge Posted on 14/01/2017 | 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 is Orthorexia? Posted on 21/06/2016 | No Comments

Orthorexia Nervosa is a term used to describe those with an unhealthy obsession with healthy eating, not those who choose to live a healthy lifestyle. Last week on social media, I saw the term “Orthorexia” thrown around one too many times and today, I attempt set the record straight.

I Quit the Glorification of ‘Busy’ Posted on 22/03/2016 | No Comments

2016 is the year I quit the glorification of ‘busy’. The other day it occurred to me that the term ‘busy’ is no longer just a state of affairs but a frame of mind often even an excuse. In everyday life we can find ourselves feeling guilty or ‘lazy’ when we fail to utilise every second of everyday. What happened to living in the moment? This years I ask you to join me in redefining to the term ‘lazy’ in hope of regaining control over our wellbeing.

What I learned in 2014 Posted on 24/12/2014 | 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 13/10/2014 | 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 10/09/2014 | 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.

Put Your Feet Up… Literally Posted on 06/06/2014 | No Comments

When it comes to managing stress, let’s face it, we aren’t fairing very well. Regular meditation practice, calming yoga classes, walks on the beach, long hot baths… they sound like wonderful ideas in theory however, if we’re really honest with ourselves, these restorative exercises seem more like a distant fantasy rather than a reality; but what if I told you that you could help turn off your body’s stress response from the comfort of your own home, no ‘ommm’s required? All you have to do is put your feet up… literally.
