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

Drumroll…well actually it’s not that dramatic. Transitions imply slow and steady, even if it tis the season for rather dramatic metamorphosis…the whole life, death, to new life again message of Easter has got to be the ultimate reminder that change is inevitable (and even when it is quick it is seldom painless). This rather slack blogger is going to be … 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

Endings and beginning again

And-they-lived-hanging

What is it about us humans that can make us so sad about endings and so fearful of beginnings? And why can’t we just be happy (or at least circumspect/hopeful) about both ending something old and starting something new? This week we celebrated (hint happiness – then why do I feel so sad?) our Miss Yin finishing primary school. There … Read More

If you had to pick one thing you want to achieve (or change – see how I’m having a two-way bet here) what would it be? What is that one thing that if you achieved it, could change everything? What is the one thing that if you changed, you could achieve what you want? Right now there are people the … Read More

Stepping up

Liam uniform

The first day of school is up there in the great milestones of life – and I’m talking for Mums (and Dads) too. Little Yang seems to be taking the whole thing in his funny large-looking stride, but the seemingly oversized school shoes don’t look as big on him as the uniform. He’ll grow into it. We grow into things. … Read More

More or less

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

The lazy guide to being enough in 2015

I have a new favourite word –LOLL.  Thankfully it’s not my word of the year for 2015 (or I wouldn’t get much done), but it is my word of the moment. I lolled Christmas Day (our main celebration was Christmas Eve and while there wasn’t much lolling going on in preparation, it was all worth it). I could say I … Read More

It’s Halloween and I’m not scared. I’m not secretly scared that I’m slipping under the seductive spell of alcohol. I was a bit frightened, prior to #ocsober, but I’ve faced that demon down. Said BOO! to a bad habit, because that’s what it was. I read this post (full of some really interesting research) this week about addiction being overcome … Read More

A life of FIRSTs

There’s something special about experiencing something for the FIRST time (well not so much having a tooth filled, or a speeding fine or sitting an exam, but I digress). There’s something even more special about FIRST time achievements, especially when they represent an important goal. So this week I taught my FIRST yoga class (and I appreciate all your kind … Read More

Change – not as scary as a blood moon

Change lightning

So the big ‘blood’ moon eclipse was a no-show in the skies last week (it was red and eclipsed, we just couldn’t see it for the clouds) and now we’re getting ready for a partial solar eclipse with a new moon next week (we won’t see it either as it will only be visible over North America). Two eclipses in … Read More
