You can’t expect to help and heal others if you don’t look after yourself. This is a fact. However, we are all human and sometimes life can take over a little, and we forget. The ten minutes of morning yoga can easily disappear. The five minutes of mindfulness while doing the washing up just gets […]

I was converted to muesli after a ski holiday to Austria earlier in the year. You could just add all the extra bits you liked and grind a  selection of seeds in a lovely wooden spice mill making it kind of special. After a few weeks of being back home the novelty had worn off […]

Yep, let’s discuss poop. I’ve always been a three times a day girl. In the morning. If I only go twice, that’s ok. If just the once I feel unfinished, and heaven help us if I don’t go at all. Major grumpiness! Constipation can be a problem for many with varying degrees of blockage, and […]

Patience comes with age. Well, it does with me. The realisation that anger, frustration and impatience doesn’t get you very far. I have been told that I have ‘great patience’, but between you and I, this wasn’t always the case. Having a brother with Autism has always tested my patience and it’s only recently that […]

So we are back to the issue of ageing again. It seems to come with age. If you see what I mean. It’s not until you get to a certain age that you really start to think about it. A birthday is meant to be a joyful occasion. A celebration. It can also be a […]

I find some days I’m really in the yoga groove and other days I could wish it would get out of my face! I mean, I see so many people on instagram making some amazing shapes in stunning surroundings that I know I will never be able to do, and instead of acknowledging the post […]

Having spent a week in Austria I have been inspired by the simple but also complex breakfast that is muesli. I’ve always liked porridge in the winter as a filling warming breakfast, but as spring moves in, my need for a warming breakfast moves out. I tend then to resort to spelt toast, which doesn’t […]

I’m actually writing this while on an flight home after a week of skiing, as I see how things have changed so fast in the world of technology. In the ‘old days’ I’d be making notes with pen and paper, now I can type into notes on my iPad and save everything ready to drop […]

organic turmeric

I’m always interested in anything natural that can help health and wellbeing, and last year I discovered the powerful ways of the turmeric root. Turmeric in your diet used to be just in your curry powder. Looking like ginger, but more orange, you can now find this fresh rhizome in most good veg shops near […]

I juice everyday. Every morning. It ensures I get my ‘five or more a day.’ More vegetables than fruit and straight in to my tummy. All those super enzymes, vitamins and minerals. When I started juicing there were no Nutribullets. Just juicers. There is a place for both, but personally, first thing in the morning, I […]
