Workplace stress is a pretty horrible thing. I would go so far as to say torturous. I have known people to faint at work from stress, break out in rashes and develop all sorts of anxious illnesses. I myself have had something akin to a nervous breakdown thanks to one particular psychotic boss – I once even threw up before I had to go to work!Read More

A few years ago, while I was giving a talk to several patients at the chiropractic clinic I was working in, I decided to ask the attendees a question. This question underpins a very large part of my philosophy and how I coach the people I work with. I asked them what they used to do, for fun, when they were kids? At first, I received a few blank stares and people looking at one another for inspiration, but then each person spoke up and shared their childhood delights.Read More
I have been busy recording interviews with some amazing people over the last few months for The Lifestyle Transformation Guide, and I want to give you a sneak peak. So, between now and the launch date in September, I’m going to show you some snippets of these chats. First up is the brilliant Kathryn Budig.
Kathryn Budig is a yogi, a writer, a foodie, and one of the wisest and loveliest people I’ve had the chance to connect with.Read More

Everything in life is flow.
Energy is constantly flowing to us and through us, so when it comes to opening the door to receiving more love, more happiness, more creativity and more soul-rocking, life-affirming abundance, there are a couple of things we need to do first to get out of our own way.Read More
Best Decision Ever! I feel so recharged after my week-long blog savasana that any weird guilt I created for myself totally dissipated as soon as I felt the relief that came along with mental space. Ah, space … I don’t know why I’ve resisted you for so long. I cleaned, I cleared, I de-cluttered, I culled, and I made room for all of the brilliance I know the universe has in store for me. I now totally get that we won’t attract everything that is meant for us unless we clear out the old to make room for the shiny and new.Read More
For the past few weeks I’ve wanted to do nothing besides crawl under the covers of my bed and sleep. And watch a little Gossip Girl. And then sleep some more. Feeling I was on the risk of becoming a recluse, and having Chuck/Blair/Serena/Nate/Dan story lines showing up in my dreams, I realised it was time to assess things.
My life is feeling crowded, and instead of saying no to commitments and putting in place necessary boundaries, I’ve just had the urge to hide away from it all.
As my health has improved, I’ve taken on project after project and commitment after commitment – excited because I now have the ability to work for longer than an hour without making a juice, and I can actually leave the house. However, after lying so low on Gerson Therapy for the past two years, I didn’t realise how much I would feel the effects of a rapid life re-integration.Read More

” When there is ease and simplicity in your life, it’s because earlier you learned a lot. When there is resistance and obstacles in your life, it’s because there’s even more to learn. And learning even more, is pretty much the main reason everyone is still here” — Notes from the Universe
Most people feel that when their life is filled with resistance, obstacles and challenges, it is because they are doing something wrong. In the past I was a chronic ‘fixer’ of life’s problems. I would look at a challenge I was experiencing or an obstacle that was in my way and I would think, “Ok, what do I need to do to get rid of this?” or “How can I fix this problem so that it will go away?”Read More
“The wise know that too much doing and a thing won’t get done. The secret to manifesting on the highest level is to find the perfect amount of doing and non-doing to allow the doing to be done. Sometimes much more can be accomplished simply by letting go and trusting.” – Jackson Kiddard
I read the above quote on The Daily Love last week and it pierced right through me. As much as I know and understand what our man Jackson Kiddard is saying, it’s an easy nugget of wisdom to forget. But when we do forget that we ultimately have little control over the exact outcome of our goals, life becomes so much harder.Read More

Want to be really well? Meditation may be the best individual thing you can do. Why? Well, we know that over 6000 research studies now tell us this is true (see ref 1). But who do you know that meditates? What are they like? Most I know are pretty cool. They seem happy most of the time. Bright, interested, engaged. Good people to hang out with and usually they look really vibrant, really well.
How about this? If the government wanted to save significantly on the health budget; if the health funds wanted to be more profitable or be able to afford better services, paying you to meditate would be one of the most cost effective things they could do!Read More

I’ll never forget my very first yoga class. It took me about two months to finally go (I always found an excuse to go next week, and next week just never came). I was a little nervous. I didn’t know what to expect. I couldn’t relax because my mind was obsessing with whether I was doing it right and my eyes were busy looking around for confirmation. I felt like I was always behind. I didn’t get the terminology.Read More
