Teaching our Kids Respect...

I’ve been butting heads with my pre-teen lately. I’m trying to figure out why we keep clashing and if I’m really the horrible mean mother he keeps telling me I am.

Why Are we in Such a Rush?

I was given the most magical book, the Art of Wellbeing, Joyous Living Inspired by Nature. It’s beautiful in its content and gorgeous drawn images that show an author who has time.

I think we all dream of having more time.

You Have All You Need...

Looking back on my life, it’s amazing to see that I’ve always been the same. I’ve grown and had different interests, but the person I am inside is the same.

Relaxing is Hard Work...

I'm crap at relaxing. Really I am. Can you relate?

Positive Power from a Young Age...

My youngest son went to a yoga school holiday camp and I was keen to see what he thought. He actually thought it was a bit on the boring side, but he is a boisterous 8 year old boy – although he does love yoga. In his defense, they didn’t do any yoga animals – the camel, cat, dog – I’m not sure what kind of yoga this was as how can they not do any animals!! Anyhow, he was calm and chilled out – bonus and he was handed over a sheet of beautiful affirmations. Freaking AWESOME! I had to share!

The Overrwhelm (O.W.)…

Yes, it’s spelt incorrectly as it really is meant to be the over-r-whelm.

We all know the overrwhelm (O.W.). It can be so strong and can sneak up on you. The smallest thing can tip you over the edge and seem to be so much worse. We all need help coping and functioning in this crazy busy world as we take on too much.. . read more.
