The 20% theory to overcome stress

I have a new theory to overcoming stress. I say theory because I’m still trying to practise it, and I use ‘overcome’ when really I mean ‘cope with’ or ‘reduce’, because I don’t think we can ever get rid of stress completely. But hey its a theory so I’ve got to aim high right! Short and sweet – do 20% … Read More

bloom again

This is not one of those New Year posts with all the tips for getting healthy in 2016 (drink water, eat less, meditate – all good, but kinda obvious). It is about leading a healthy life – which perhaps requires some re-definition, or make that re-invention, of what healthy really means. Or as I’m calling the changes I want to … Read More

Fast or slow?

warped clock_edited-1

This is not an erotic question! Would it drive you crazier if things went ‘too’ fast, or ‘too’ slow? Would you worry that you’d miss out on more of life if things went too slow, or if they went too fast?  Is there such a thing as a perfect speed, or is the best we can hope for some sort … Read More

Winter – a yearn for yin

Winter is the season of yin. Which suits me just fine as I head off to a yoga retreat and complete my training in yin yoga over the next couple of weeks. I’m going to use the very unfashionable ‘OMG’ to say that I’m lucky. I’m kinda unfashionable. (The retreat is just one weekend away a year, and the training two … Read More

Lessons from travel

Some parts are easy

In January last year we travelled to Japan and I fell in love. With Japan, not someone other than hubby. A year on, I miss this beautiful country and I’ve been reflecting again on the lessons that travelling there taught me. If you follow great travel blogs like Ytravel blog you’ll be blown away by the lessons, both subtle and … Read More

Let the sun shine – the third chakra

solar-plexus-chakra-colors

This time last week it was rainy days and Mondays on my mind. Today the sun in shining and I reckon it’s time for us to focus on the light that we can all shine out into the world – our own little individual sun we each carry around as the energy of the third chakra. Also called our Solar … Read More

Apple and hamburger on scales conceptual

More or less everything comes down to less or more, or less is more don’t you reckon? More of the good stuff, less of the bad stuff – but of course balance doesn’t have to be equal. So when it comes to our good health, we can distil what most of us need to do into that simple (yin yang) … Read More

Bringing it all back to balance

christmas_mandala_by_manndacity-d89mswb

There are some things I know for sure about balance. It isn’t easy, and yet it is our natural state. It doesn’t have to be equal, and yet it is about finding equilibrium. It isn’t black and white – it’s only in the richness of colour and contrast that we can perceive a beautiful pattern of balance. We can get … Read More

Have your rainbow cake and chakras too

Rainbow layer cake

So who doesn’t love the look (and the taste) of Rainbow cake? Mmmm. And who doesn’t love the cooking (and the chaos) of baking it? Mmmm…me. I’m pretty sure I won’t be baking this particular cake any time soon, even though I do love rainbows, and finding the rainbow inside us too. And I like having my cake and eating … Read More

Life’s ups and downs

The Canadian mountains really are awesome

Call it the law of gravity. Up is pretty much the exact opposite of Down, can’t get more black and white or yin-yang than that – it’s a scientific fact, a universal principle of physics, or is it?

Is there such a thing as too much gratitude?

Kathy Krugerbalance, change, contentment, yinyang8 Comments

Acceptance_edited-1

So unless you’ve been sleeping under a social media rock, gratitude is continuing its rage across the interwebs (or I should say it’s spread of the love). Busy is the new black, or perhaps it’s balance, which some say is a seemingly impossible ideal, just like being a Supermom has always been – ie we are far too busy to … Read More

Ok here’s a question for you? Which auxiliary verb (yep I checked with the grammar police) are you prefacing your life with? Or is it all about WANTs? Are you a coulda, shoulda, woulda excuse maker or an ‘I want’, ‘I think I can’ or an ‘I just will’ kinda person. Or DO you just DO? When it comes to … Read More
