Get mediating to claim your health -- mind and body. Your mind is your most precious asset, but most of all, dive into the realms of your inner being to discover and realise your true potential in all areas of your life.
Having confidence in yourself as a grown up is also key to your travelling experience. If you have the ability and processes to cope with unexpected events and stay calm whilst on the road, you can pretty much deal with anything. Travelling is stressful, but the bumps in the road need not ruin your trip. Take care, wherever life takes you.
Last September, rather a mischievous student at my school attempted to bemuse, outwit or irritate his teachers by making it sound as though he was exc...
We've all wanted to change how we feel at some point. Perhaps you drink coffee to feel more alert before arriving at work. Or maybe you've considered taking up yoga to help wind down at the end of the day. Personally, I like the idea of meditation, but with a busy job and family life I have no idea when I'd find the time.
Well, I'll be, says Juliet Kinsman. I went to north India for a week's holiday, ate to my heart's content and spent most of my time supine. And you know what - it was the most life-changing holiday I've had. That's because Vana Retreats is a new breed of destination spa with extraordinary wellbeing cuisine, ideal for anyone who fears abstinence or bootcamps. This salubrious road to wellness is smooth and only gently sloped.
Be honest. Most importantly be honest with yourself. Find your truth, what you believe in and what feels right to you. Resist the temptation to convince yourself of something you don't really believe in because others do so. Live your truth and have integrity.
Most of us have been affected by stress at some point in our lives. Whether caused by our jobs, our relationships, or just the daily toll of our busy lives, stress is not something that should ever be ignored.
Why do we always need to find someone to blame for our discomfort in being alive? If I can figure out this 'c' thing I may be able to save the world or at least myself.
Meditation and mindfulness are SO on trend right now, but in the age of the 'mindful' colouring book, are these ancient practises in danger of becoming just another buzzword?
Religion and sex, avocados and toast, Kanye and Kim... matches made in heaven (excuse the pun) right? In some ways of course, the words 'religion' and 'sex' are often seen together, bandied about with phrases like "steer clear", "not with them", "can't use that" and "after marriage" attached.
It's so easy to get consumed by things, stuff, and living in your head. This results in a missing out on the moment to moment experience of life. We can find ourselves clinging to thoughts, both good and bad. Being on autopilot, at home and at work, not stopping to take in the moments results in less ease.
The Busy, busy, busy frantic talk is so draining not just for the person saying it but for the people that have to listen to it. I think we all need to look at what we are doing and what we are doing it for?
By the end of 2014, I was completely exhausted and frustrated, because I couldn't get the job I decided "I wanted", a corporate role in one of the big world photography agencies based in London... -how little I knew back then of what I really wanted! ; )
Recently I had the rare and shocking privilege of living in an Intensive Care Unit, or ICU, for three months. I was not a patient, nor a member of sta...
Wake up just a little earlier and move your body out in nature - a fast walk or run, whatever works for you, and savour nature and connect to that higher universal energy and say what you would like to achieve that day... think of it as having a check-in with a higher power. Make it non-optional - like brushing your teeth!
Whilst I am an advocate of living a healthy lifestyle and training your body for agility, strength and movement; I am not however living in an obsessive vault where I am defined by what the aesthetic now is for what people have pre conceived as the perfect body type.
