Journey To The Centre Of Things

Posted 29 June, 2016
Article 71
My Sunday nights have changed dramatically in the last three years. As recently as 2013 I might have been out with a friend enjoying an early movie and Vietnamese pho dinner, or down at the local yoga studio practising yin yoga as late as 9pm. Since settling in the suburbs with my partner and becoming a mum, Sunday nights, at least on the surface, are a little less glamorous...

The Ethical Choice - By Josephine Lorele

Posted 13 May, 2016
Article 70
Through many years of travel and at 35 having a little bit more maturity on my side, I have found myself changing my perspective on how I choose to live, how I travel and the consumer choices I make. From the clothing and products I purchase to the footprints I leave on the land I travel too and how this affects the people who inhabit it. I have found a shift from 'should' and 'would be nice' to - 'I need to do this'.

Daily Self Care

Posted 12 May, 2016
Article 69
Our lives are constantly evolving. Even though occasionally the progress may seem slow, and we can sometimes complain about being stuck, when you think back over the last five years I’m sure, like me, there have been more than a few plot twists that took you by surprise.

Before falling pregnant, you might never have dreamed of stepping foot inside a yoga studio full of lycra-clad deep-breathing hippies.

Naturally we want to start feeling the best we’ve ever felt, and for the first time in our lives it’s not just about us, but about our growing baby as well.

Attracting A Great Relationship

Posted 11 March, 2016
Article 65
A common question/complaint I hear regularly from coaching clients and friends is why they haven’t been able to attract a great romantic relationship. As somebody who was single for the greater part of her twenties, I can definitely empathise. So much pressure from society to fit in, often coupled with poisonous self comparison, can lead to a toxic tape of self blame which can get stuck in the music player on repeat. It seems like the longer we go without that special someone, the more we reaffirm to ourselves those old stories which could all be titled ‘Why I’m not good enough’.

Be Pure

Posted 8 February, 2016
Article 64
Last week I went to listen to clinical nutritionist Ben Warren of ‘Be Pure’ fame speak at one of his several North Island talks.

Before committing to this event, I had sporadically seen Ben’s ‘sponsored’ words of wisdom creeping up on my Facebook feed. However, a recent bout of low iron and B12 through pregnancy peaked my interest.

A few friends had shared Ben’s thoughts on Facebook, and with a following of nearly 25,000 people, I wanted to find out for myself what all the fuss was about.
