Last week, on a beautiful sunny morning as I was having my morning coffee, I opened up my Instagram and there was a beautiful message waiting for me from of my past clients.
She shared –
“Naama... the moment I surrendered and left my fate in the hands of the universe .. and I mean absolutely surrender EVERYTHING started to happen!!! I got an amazing house, I got a pay rise, amongst so many other things ... it all started happening so fast I can hardly b...
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...
It’s 9:00am on a Monday, Maya is napping and I’m enjoying my coffee while soaking up this beautiful morning sun. I’ve just sat down to write down my gratitude list and one of the first things that came up for me was my morning routine.
I’ve been mentioning my morning routine quite a lot lately, because truthfully since Maya was born it has become more important than ever. Whether it’s 15 min or 2 hours it’s my 'oxygen mask'.
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 can’t count on the fingers of my two hands the times I heard this:
"I am good all day and then everything goes wrong, it just seems to go downhill when I come home back from work..." You come home from a long day and you go straight to the fridge, sounds familiar?
"I start my day off with my best intention, I have my healthy breakfast at home, I pack my lunch from home, I'm able to get through the 3pm sugar crash and just when I think this day is going so...
Back in my diet days I used to meticulously plan what I’ll eat, when I’ll eat, where I’ll eat and how much. I was convinced that’s the way to go! I was so afraid that if I won’t plan all my meals upfront I might mess up my calorie intake, macro counting or portion controlling. This is one of those things I wish I could tell my younger self - you don’t need to eat perfect to be healthy, all these rules hinder your ability to recognize your body’s internal cu...
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.
