Hey! Let’s talk about feeeeelings. Ooh yeah, I bet that hit an uncomfortable nerve. Why is that? Why would we rather avoid talking about our feelings?

Your Favourite Indulgent Treats Without The Guilt

When transitioning to a ‘healthy’ diet, it is all too easy to adopt a ‘poor me’ attitude; focusing only on what you can’t have and feeling as though you are self-sacrificing and depriving yourself of your favourite foods that give you great (temporary) satisfaction.

Scarcity vs Abundance. If you’re not so familiar with these contrasting concepts, it can be easy to brush past them and dismiss their significance.

Can’t Stop Thinking? Don’t Stress, You’re Not the Only One.

Have you ever said the words, ‘my mind just won’t stop’ or ‘I can’t switch off my mind?’ I used this phrase a lot to explain why I have difficulty falling asleep. I’ve never been one of those people who can fall asleep within minutes. I like to be super comfortable, freshly showered, the right…
