Blog

My talks cover a lot of inspiring information, ground breaking research and helpful daily tools, but there is still so much more I’d love to talk to you about. My blog allows me to expand on the topics which I touch on in my talks, as well as to explore many other topics as well. I've called my blog Flourish because I truly believe that it’s within all of us to be able to flourish -  to embrace and enjoy our lives and to live lives that are full of vibrant health, joy, gratitude and peace. We can Flourish at any age or stage of life through the conscious choices we make. Even in the difficult times or times of illness and poor health - our greatest challenges often lead to our greatest growth. I hope that my blogs will inspire you to make choices that will help you to flourish too.

Over the last few weeks I’ve been thinking a lot about how we struggle to give ourselves ‘permission to pause’. It’s such a difficult thing to get off the hamster wheel, even for just a few minutes, and to look after ourselves. We feel that we should be constantly busy, constantly productive, constantly achieving, constantly giving. I have even, at times in my life, wished that I could be sick, just so that I could stay in bed and I could tell the world to “go away”! (more…)

How to Stay Sane in an Insane World

The last few weeks have seen us lurch from one bad news story to the next. From terrible storms and floods to devastating fires, from personal tragedies and challenges to political and economic dramas and upheaval. It’s hard to keep up with it all. (more…)


A Mind “FULL” Moment

A Mind “FULL” Moment

Sometimes my mind is buzzing. And when it’s like this I feel like my whole body is buzzing. I lurch from emails to Whatsapps to calls. My to-do list feels like it grows with every passing minute. And then, when I have a free moment, I find myself on Facebook, filling that quiet moment with yet more stimulation. More buzzing. More information.

The 3am Hamster Wheel

In the last few weeks I have found myself and my body in a high stress mode, falling into sympathetic overdrive – in part fueled by the launch of my website and newsletter blog, and in part fueled by what has been going on in our beloved country, South Africa, and the rise of civil action in response to this.
