The resort has just 50 rooms and six garden villas in a former late-19th-century mansion surrounded by gardens and woodland, with commanding views. Ask for a river view room, or a terrace. The décor is an uber-stylish mix of country retreat meets streamlined modern, all in soft sage, slate grey and fawn.

My life has shown me that the biggest epiphanies come in the most unlikely of places. I just never expected a hospital treatment room to be one of them. And I definitely didn't expect the words of a Nuclear Medicine doctor to affect me so much that they touched me more deeply inside than anything I could have possibly imagined.

When you think of a situation as a 'problem', tension, worry, disappointment, frustration are most likely to arise. Now what happens if you were to think of the same situation as a 'challenge'? And what happens if you think of it as an 'opportunity'?

Through my own training I have seen massive changes in my body- this because I train with weights and have done so for more than four years now. The changes were subtle initially but as my nutrition and training stepped out, things began to change.

How Getting Out in Nature Increases Happiness

Frontier | Posted 01.10.2015 | UK Lifestyle

With the first signs of Autumn already creeping in--browning leaves, birds flying south, pumpkin spiced everything--you might be forgiven for thinking that an afternoon in the great outdoors sounds less than appealing. But an ever-growing body of scientific research suggests that getting out into your local green space will give you more than just fresh air.

It's the same if we say yes to doing something because we feel we have to. The trick is to learn how to only say yes when you are ready to give with love and abundance than with duty or resentment.

Many women suffer with hormonal symptoms thanks to an imbalance in the primary female hormone 'Oestrogen'. Where the medical model will look to the Pill, HRT or painkillers to control oestrogen symptoms, the Naturopathic model looks to diet, lifestyle and supplements to balance the endocrine system.

It's Hard to Speak My Heart

I got my other wishes. Today I dressed myself. Fed myself. Left my flat and walked. I never take those things for granted. They will remain a privilege, rather then a right, for the rest of my life. Not because I believe they will go away. But because they are part of a long list of things I am overwhelmingly thankful for every day.

Each morning we wake up with the opportunity to practice well-being. There is nothing to wait for, nothing to chase after. We can, in this moment, bring our attention to what matters most, and then we can take action on behalf of that. We can dive into the miracle of existence over and over.

How to Be Healthy... Without Feeling Like a Tw*t

The worst thing you can do is to act righteous and make others feel bad about their choices. Everyone is different and you don't want to be judged so it's not fair to make others feel like that. Treat others how you would want to be treated!

Beauty and happiness do not actually go hand in hand, one does not automatically equate to the other. There is after all a beauty that we all agree on- the beautiful people in Hollywood, the models and anyone who essentially graces the front cover of Sports illustrated Magazine!

The Unwell in Wellness

Sure, in basic terms, doing more exercise and eating more vegetables is good for anyone. And opening up the discussion about eating healthily and getting active is great, too. But the pressure to do these things, or as the authors put it, the obsession with our wellbeing, is actually pretty damaging.

The Alkaline Diet: Miracle Cure or Just Another Fad?

Pixie Turner | Posted 12.07.2015 | UK Lifestyle
Pixie Turner

Rather than worrying about acid and alkaline foods as their own "food groups", if you simply eat a decent amount of fruits and vegetables (five a day springs to mind), you have nothing to worry about. Quite frankly, anyone who says you can change the pH of your blood needs to be immediately directed to a high school chemistry classroom.

Yes, I have gained weight. I'm bigger and rounder and fleshier than I've ever been. But I've gained so many other things in the process too; the extra pounds of flesh and fat are just a tiny part of all the other abundances.

To yoga or Pilates: that is the question. Or it was with me at least. You see I'd always thought of it as a preference. You either do one or the other - right? Never both. They're just too different.

Five Minute Mindfulness

The Dalai Lama - who's busier than you or I - finds time to meditate. Apparently he sits for two hours every day, unless he is really busy - when he sits for FOUR hours. But where are we, less enlightened mortals, supposed to find the time when are days are full of stuff that's clamouring for our attention?
