What a decade... A truly transformative one for me!
My favourite part about reviewing and reflecting on the year and the decade behind me is thinking about my biggest challenges + lessons learned. Looking back, I’ve noticed how much has happened over a decade. How much I’ve changed, grew and evolved.
When I rewind to 2009/2010, I am met with a totally different version of myself.
In retrospective I can truly see how my hardships, struggles and challenges were...
Last week I wrote a post on social media about the challenges I’ve been experiencing around getting back to my regular post-pregnancy yoga practice and the mindset shift I had to make to make it work in this phase of my life.
I’ve got a lot of comments and messages on this post + questions about how to find balance between sleep and self-care with a busy life.
I used to be a person who really can’t make decisions, big or small made no difference… I was the one who’d stand in the ice cream shop unable to decide if to go for the chocolate, pistachio or strawberry flavor. The real problem was making the big decisions – where to live, what to study, what to do for living, what to spend my money on etc.
Not only I really struggled making these decisions, about an hour later I would feel like someone punched me in the s...
I remember hearing this quote by Henri Murger “The day is not over yet. You may still meet with Providence, who never gets up before noon.” That first sentence really stuck with me. It immediately made me think about all those days that started ‘wrong’ and kind of set up a negative pace for the rest of the day. Sometimes you just get these days where things keep happening to you over and over again, as if someone up above is testing to see if you're really...
If you missed part 1 where I talked about the purpose our feelings serve and an introduction on how to deal with 'bad' days you can read that post here (highly recommend reading part 1 first). In this post I'm going to focus on our intuition and how to tap into it. I'll also summarise both part 1 and 2.
To fully understand our intuition we have to first understand how our mind works. Our minds are not wired to experience discomfort. We have a part...
We all have those days. We wake up feeling low, uninspired, unmotivated and we have no energy to get out of bed. Totally normal, right? So how come when it actually happens to us we feel bad and guilty about it?
Having ‘bad days’ is inevitable. And it’s essential for our mental health to acknowledge that it’s ok.
It’s ok not to be perfect, it’s ok not to always perform at your best, and it’s ok to have ‘bad’ days. It’s human.
Most people know what they need to do to stay healthy - drink plenty of water, eat lot's of fruit and vegetables, exercise, get enough sleep and reduce stress. Being healthy is not rocket science. And yet, so many people struggle to keep a healthy lifestyle and 'fall off the wagon' time and time again.
Why is that??
The secret to getting any desired results is in our daily habits. Something becomes a habit when we do it on autopilot. This doesn't m...
