A Very Mindful Christmas

Taming the holiday spirt. Let’s face it December can be tough work even for the most festive of folk. It’s the time of year where all the deadlines loom. School wraps up for the holiday season, the weather is at a bit of a peak changing point, and suddenly everyone has the urge to catch up all at the same time. If you happen to work in the service or holiday industry it’s likely that you are gearing up (or already...

A Virgos guide to life for the over-scheduled

 How I stay organised and never miss a deadline. Let me start with a general disclaimer. This post should be consumed with an awareness that no one anywhere has their shit 100% sorted. We all have areas that need improving and sometimes those areas are so large they are pretty much cover everything. At different stages in life we have different levels of commitments and some are more demanding than others. Although I have no kids (nor...

Info for Yogis and wannabe yogis alike! Taking a break from our regular program of all things style and sustainability related to talk yoga. Why? Because I’m a total yoga-a-holic and I felt like sharing. I’m off to Wanderlust Sunshine Coast tomorrow with the Peppermint Magazine crew to talk all things Peppermint with the Wanderlust attendees while squeezing in some yummy yoga breaks in between. While it’s all well...

Insta-Worth Motivational Quotes

Sometimes being positive is hard work. The news feeds us all sorts of doom and gloom on  daily basis and sometimes it can be a challenge to stay motivated and happy. If you are eco minded it can be even more challenging to stay positive as we are hearing an increasing number of facts about the negative impact that our  actions of past are having now, and are expected to have in the future. While it’s important to be aware of...

Getting Back To Nature.

So many worries and so little time! In a world where we spend hours in front of screens or behind the wheel (wearing out sets of tyres), caring for other, and working around the clock we can sometimes become a little lofty and stressed. This lofty feeling can result in illness, brain chatter (those thoughts that keep you awake all night), brain fog, depression, and unhealthy addiction. Retail therapy is just one example of how we...

Recent Developments in My Relationship.

My Relationship with Yoga. Had you for a moment there right? You thought there might be a divorce announcement? Didn’t ya’? Fortunately the relationship under the microscope is a longer standing and more roller-coster-esque one than my relationship between my significant other. Yoga practise and me.

Dive In or Slow and Steady? Refections on Moving Forward

Sometimes in life we have those moments where we have to test new waters. Some of us run up and dive right in. Excited by the experience, living in the moment, and not thinking too much about the consequences of our actions. These risk takers are the ones that many of us look up to. Those enigmatic and exciting people who seem to dance their way through life without a care in the world. They are the kind of people each of us in some...

Conscious Thoughts From the Minds Of Masters

What We Think We Become! Many of us believe that we are too busy to make a difference in the state of the world. While we might not all have the spare time or money to fly off and work on orangutang habitat restoration projects, or build homes in an African village we all have the capacity to make huge changes with a tool that doesn’t cost a cent or impede on our busy daily agenda. We can use our big, plump, mushy and marvellous...

Ways to Un-Silly Your Season: Work Audit

Do what you love. Love what you do? As the year comes to a close we either fall into one of two categories. Those who go on holidays for the holiday season, and those who serve or cover for those who are away for the holiday season. To be honest I am yet to fall into category one, having always worked during the holiday season, however my work has varied with my occupation. It was always horrible coming into holiday season working in...

Ways To Un-Silly Your Season: Expand

The ‘Silly Season’ usually equals stress. From family gatherings, to Christmas parties, and running the gauntlet of shopping malls, there is no denying that December is a stressful month. While there are a few lucky folk who manage to breeze through this season with an air of zen, there is a good chance that most of you out there have had at least one brief moment of wishing that it was January already. With this in mind...
