Climbing the Mountain

Today I went for a hike up the beautiful Mount Lofty in South Australia. It is an absolutely stunning climb, and whilst it doesn’t take too long, it is a tough trek! Especially for someone like me who doesn’t do a whole heap of climbing mountains. On my way to the top I began reflecting…

Boho Bedroom Decor

Just recently I moved house, and I saw this move as an opportunity to finally de-clutter a bit, and give my living space a much needed renovation. I decided to create a relaxing kind of oasis in my room, a place where I can go and meditate and just chill out. I hope this can…

My Eating Disorder Story

This is something that I have wanted to share for so long, but have been too scared to post. I guess that fear comes from a feeling that I may be judged, or maybe seen in a different light, but I believe that my story is not so unlike many others, and if it can…

Brain Over Binge

  Tonight I began reading a book that I never finished called “Brain Over Binge” and I had forgotten how incredibly helpful it was to me one year ago when I first started it. Over the holiday period I have fallen into a habit of binge eating again. My story is much like that of…

An Open Letter To My Body

Dear body… I am sorry that it has been such a long time since we last sat down and had a decent talk. I have a lot that I need to say to you, and so I suppose I should just begin. I am sorry. I have not treated you kindly over the past few…

Learn to Love Your Body

I’m not really sure the exact moment it began, but for as long as I can remember there have been parts of my body that I have hated. Now I know that hate is a strong word, but that is the only word that can describe what I felt towards myself on a daily basis….

Dealing With Anxiety

I have struggled with anxiety for pretty much as long as I can remember. However it really only became a big problem around 3 years ago when it became so uncontrolled that it affected my every day life, and it really just took over. From that time to now I have discovered some tips to…

Mindfulness

For a while now I have been practising meditation and mindfulness in my every day life and I am experiencing so many benefits that I just had to share about it on here! So what exactly is mindfulness? Mindfulness is all about training your brain to pay attention in a specific way. It is about…

Why I Went Veggo!

The first question I get asked when I tell people that I am vegetarian transitioning to vegan is ‘why?’ To which I usually respond with ‘do you want the short answer, or the long answer?’ The long answer is a difficult one to explain because you see, the meat and dairy industry is a complex…

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes

Oh my goodness, it’s been a minute. But seriously, it has been way too long since I have posted and so much has happened, but at the same time not a whole lot has happened at all, as I seem to find myself in old habits, forever taking one step forward and then sliding all…

Being Gentle With Yourself

Everyone makes mistakes. This is an important lesson to learn, and to carry with you throughout your life. So often we feel like failures and beat ourselves up for not meeting expectations placed upon us, so we punish ourselves. This punishment is usually unjust and counterintuitive – it brings about the opposite outcome of what…
