Merry Christmas

                                       Merry Christmas 2013

                         May you be blessed with Wellness, Happiness and Inspiration in 2014

      What does an Author, Yoga  Teacher, Health and Vitality Coach do on Christmas morning?

She gets up at the crack of dawn, sets her intention for the day in a meditation, does her daily ritual Bikram Yoga Sequence, meditates and prays for wellness, peace and inspiration, and sends her love and healing energy out to those in need. Then prepares a Raw Food morning tea for family and friends and then sits down to write for an hour or two  to allow her inspiration to flow on such a gifted spiritual day.

I give thanks to this Special Day where our world can come together to stop, get off the treadmill of life, reflect on the past year and hope for a New Year to be filled with all gifts of God's intentions. 

        Pure Love, Joy, Gratitude, Peace, Wellness, Harmony, unlimited Happiness and Success.

Remember the Gift is in the Present- the 'Present Moment' that is, where all your desires and dreams  you suddenly discover are sitting in the centre of your heart. 

                         May the  peace, happiness, love, joy, harmony, and  kindness be within you all. 

Becoming still and clear of your intent is one of the most powerful tools you can discover.  Christmas Day is a day to be Grateful for what we  have, what nature provides us, to access  your  compassionate heart, especially for those who are in pain and struggle, 
For those on your own, are never really on their own when you can practice such things of  God, higher self, universe your divine, angels, what ever you like to call your God, just know your divine, higher self wants you to experience all the Love Joy peace in your heart today and everyday of your life to come.

Stay Present. Be Grateful JOYFUL and Happy!

With Love & Gratitude

How to gain balance amongst the Festive Season

WOW! December is here and the festive season has kicked in. With the Christmas wish list growing, and no time to spare!
How do you gain balance amongst the busiest time of the year.

Mum's  are not only juggling their own family list, work responsibilities,  children's end of year activities, concerts, teacher and coaches presents, cards and trying to keep the house in order.  The Dad's often  have the added financial pressure pouring on and stress at work can often be bought  home all while the house wife  and partner is  trying to juggle it all and keep the calm. 
Many Single Mum's are doing it all on their own and trying to make it the best for their children with   what they have. 
But this time of the year touches my heart to those who are seriously fighting illness, cancer and some facing death.
Many families are forced to put Christmas aside this year and just focus on day by day and practicing gratitude for each day.
Emotion can be high for many missing their family and loved ones who have sadly passed.
Gratitude at this time of the year can help increase your sense of happiness and gain balance. 

But how do you gain real balance and keep your health and vitality in check over the next month so you do not fall in a heap at Christmas or be prone to getting sick.

Taking time out to look after yourself has to be at the top of the list for December. Don’t find yourself on Christmas Day, worn out exhausted, overweight sluggish with no zest for life or energy to give.

The days I spent in my 20’s and 30’s running busy hair salons, I lived on adrenalin, and by the time Christmas Day came around, I remember waking up sick, tired and exhausted. My body would live on the high of busyness and giving to everyone else but myself,  when I stopped my body would tell me I was a  toxic city. 

These days are different for me and  gaining a true balanced life and knowing the skills, mindset and techniques to maintain the balance is what I love to share with you as my followers and fans.

Gaining balance in December can be done all it takes is focus and  a few small changes step by step that are  easy for you to follow.

But often amongst the busy life you lead, having a private health and vitality coach can help you get there quicker.
