I have started working late nights, but my job allows me to listen to podcasts whilst I work. Ok maybe doesnt allow me, but its how I make my work a lot happier. Since lockdown, my therapies were shut so I took a night time at home job working on emails and I have been listening to some amazing podcasts and youtube interviews.
My latest is Dr William Li, author of the book – Eat to beat disease and he has some amazing information. When he talked about looking at food as medicne rather than mindlessly eating to just fill the stomach, just makes you think more about what everything you eat is doing to your body. Is it feeding the cancer cells or is it helping gut health.
I am always surpised when people look at everything else before they look at their food. I know personally food effects me greatly and well not so greatly.
My take from what he talks about and I can implement into my day was 8 ounces of pomegranate juice – tick, hot chocolate a day (raw cacauo so not your cadburies chocolate) tick, salads tick. I personally am plant based but he recommends fish, although after Seaspiracy on Netflix I would highly unrecommend.
Have just finished the six day training at home. I am just obsessed with this man, he is such a wise and beautiful human being. I am soaking up his word and teachings. He has some great talks and exercises on youtube and they are all free so no excuse for not practicing. I am about to restart from day one and do it again. My legs actually feel stronger in just six days.
For my Xmas I recieved a wonderful gift (courtesy of me ordering it for myself) in the hope I would stick to my goals. The Law of Attraction Planner and boy what a planner it is. A lot of thought went into this one and you def need a lot of time to really think about what you want out of life, yes its that deep.
I start my goals (mini challenges) on the 10th January, which gives me time to slowly ease out of the festivity of eating junk, junk and a side of junk. There is a page which you write 50 of your goals, jesh who has 50 goals? I am adding mini goals to my list after watching some youtube videos of other people who have also bought the planner.
My mini challenges to myself are 30 days No Wheat…Vegan(been vegetarian for 30 odd years but damn Galaxy chocolate keeps me from attaining my goal)….Qi Gong Daily for 7 days (roped my dear ole mother into this one)….No Tv 7 days (day 2….have painted rooms, walked bridge, read my book, cleared out nearly every room in house…keeping busy and writing little blog posts whilst trying not to look at what everyone else is watching.
My bigger goals are to do with my business and my sustainability projects and more and the fact that at the end of each month you review your month so it keeps you on track to achieve all your goals.
So looking for a planner i’d def recommend this one and wish you all the best of staying positive and working hard towards your dreams
I have been using the HearthMath tools for sometime now and I find them to be beneficial in regards to my emotional wellbeing. I also bought some of their books and find their techniques really useful.
Below is the Cut – Thru technique, I found it most useful when thinking about a problem I have, then imagining my close friend having this dilemma and what advise I would give them. I always think we are so good and advising others but never too great at taking our own advise.
A HeartMath TIP:
Cut-Thru: Here’s a simple exercise adapted from the HeartMath Cut-Thru technique to help you achieve emotional coherence, which has been shown to improve the efficiency of the immune system.
Be aware of how you feel about an issue at hand.
Breathe a positive feeling or attitude.
Be objective, as if the issue or problem is someone else’s.
Listening to Gregg Braden Live just now, he is just opening up my tiny mind to this New world. I have read his book ‘The Divine Matrix’ and was fascinated by this book, his talks on Gaia.com are amazing. His beliefs on Healing through thought alone and to change our lives and relationships, heal our bodies, and bring peace to our families and nations requires a simple yet precise shift in the way we use belief.
Fact 1: The universe, our world, and our bodies are made of a shared field of energy that was scientifically recognized in the 20th century and is now identified by names that include the field, the quantum hologram, the mind of God, nature’s mind, and the Divine Matrix.’ • Fact 2: In the field of the Divine Matrix, “things” that have been connected physically and then separated act as if they are still linked…
I try not to read the News, I know to a lot of people that sounds quite ignorant but I find that its all bad news and really effects me in a negative way. So in order to raise my vibration I am sitting here reading all these beautiful stories from around the world which shows humans compassion to one another and of course my favourite, the good old soppy animal stories that cant help but lift your spirits.
Here is the story of the Therapy dog….Ahhhhhhhhhh
Therapy Dog Stuck In Traffic Jam Helps A Man Who Desperately Needed A Hug

Sherman is a 4-year-old, 230 pound Old English Mastiff who lives with his family in Longview, Washington. He’s also a therapy dog who loves to visit with anyone who could use a smile or is in need of having their spirits lifted. Sherman focuses most of…
I was speaking to my neighbour recently about what she could do to relax as she was stressed out with work and as I reeled off the masses of relaxation techniques that I use, we got onto the topic of essential oils.
She, like many others I speak to, she was not convinced they work. I knew that she was trying to stop smoking and so I asked her if she had a patch on, which she replied yes. “So you pop a patch onto your skin and you just believe this is doing what it is saying it is”…then a lightbulb went on and she realised that what we put onto our skin absorbs into our body.
I rattled off some of the ones I would use for helping to relax and unwind after a busy day and the various methods that you can use the oils.
Some essential oils used in the home for cleaning, they are a natural option and smell amazing.
Loved for its light, clean scent, this essential oil is also a powerhouse in homemade cleaning recipes. Naturally antibacterial and antiviral, lemon is commonly used to degrease stubborn stains as well as freshen the air. Use it to deodorize your fridge, clean the floor or combine 10 drops with 1/2 cup olive oil for a natural wood or leather polish.
One of the best-smelling naturally antibacterial essential oils is lavender. Lavender pairs well with another common natural cleaner, vinegar. Just add 4-5 drops of lavender to your vinegar cleaning mixture for its natural antibacterial properties – and for a more bearable scent. Harness lavender’s soothing scent in homemade dish soap and linen spray to elevate washing dishes and laundry day.

Listening to Ben Greenfield at A fest give out some amazing hacks from ancient snd modern science about how to live life at an optimal level and one of his many many strategies is Buteyko Breathing.
So I started researching and practicing this type of breathing.
Bullet Proof Dave asprey had Buteyko therapist and author Patrick Mckeown on his podcast talking and demonstrating the techniques. It was such a fascinating podcast.
In the 1950s, Russian scientist Dr. Konstantin Buteyko identified over 150 disorders which could be resolved by normalising the breathing, and spent the next three decades developing breathiing exercises and strategies to achieve this.
The Buteyko Method of breathing re-training has now been taught over the past 20 years as a highly effective, drug-free education process which helps normalise and improve the breathing, reducing the symptoms of many common disorders. By learning the method, you can experience the medical…
